Year 2 trip to the Mosque

On Tuesday, 10th March 2020, Year 2 went to the Mosque. 2S went in the morning and 2P went in the afternoon. Let us tell you all about it.

After arriving on the coach, Y2 waited until they got there. Once they arrived at the Mosque, they put a red bandanna over their heads. After that, they went inside the Mosque which was a very pale yellow, green and blue things hung from the ceiling of the holy place. Then some people told them to follow them and they took the children to the praying room. In the room, there was a long, red carpet with patterns and white, decorated pillars that were place around the room. Then, they went into a room with a man who taught them about some holy items like the comb and some children were lucky enough to have it used on them.

After they went to the eating room, where the Muslims ate or whoever joined them that session ate, they finally hopped on the bus to head back to school before 2P arrived. It sounded a fascinating trip.

The School Disco

On Tuesday, reception, KS1 and KS2 had an amazing disco with an amazing DJ. It was very fun and we had loads of yummy sweets and the PTFA were doing face paint, tattoos and lots more.

The KS1 disco started at 5:00pm and had lots of great and crazy dancing. In the reception classrooms was the food and we think they have raised lots of money from it. They all had a dance until it was time for it to end. They all went out and the PTFA had a clean up for 15 minutes.

The KS2 disco started at 6:15 pm and the description by the KS2 children sounded fabulous. Their Disco was about the same thing but just different songs. The hallways were crowded and it was an amazing time. We all had a superb time.

The Drumming Assembly

On Thursday, we had an assembly all about drumming. The two people that were hosting the assembly were called Nathan and Alison from Learn to Rock. They were showing and talking to the parents a lot about their safety and how they were making it harder for the children.

First they started by showing us the beats that they taught and how they made it harder through the lessons. All the children who had been practising came up and showed off their new skills.

The best thing about the assembly is that some of the teachers played and they were really good at it… well kinda I guess.

At the end, they had the older ones, which they called the super stars, play and they did most of the hardest tricks and their names were Bethany and Dempsey. Can you believe they got 3 rounds of applause!?

It was great to watch and everyone is hoping that they can go next.

RD assembly

On Friday, the 13th of March, RD performed an amazing assembly all about the Gruffalo and what they have been doing since the start of the school year.

Firstly, a couple children stood up and said what they have been doing since the first day of the year. A couple of children showed an example of their maths and English. In maths a volunteer called Isla counted up and down to twenty amazingly. Then another volunteer wrote fox on the white board.

After that, everyone did an amazing job of a Gruffalo performance that everyone loved. The mouse especially did a great job for remembering all of his words. Everyone did an amazing job!

2S Assembly

This afternoon, 2S performed an amazing assembly that was all about The Great Fire of London. It was truly one of the best assemblies that we have seen in a while. Fortunately, we will be able to tell you all about it as you may not of been able to see it.

First, it started off with two grandchildren and a grandpa who went back in time to the Great Fire of London. The first person they met was Samuel Pepys and he was writing in his special diary. He wrote in a strange language so nobody could understand it that well.

Then, the 3 people, who were the two grandchildren and the grandpa, met the king. One of the grandchildren asked him what he was doing? The king answered,” I’ve tried everything to stop this fire. I’ve even tried pulling people’s houses down. Nothing works!”

Next, somebody suggested gunpowder. He liked the idea and tried it. It worked. It was a fantastic assembly!

World Book Day Dress Up

On Thursday, it was world book day and the whole school dressed up as many different characters from different books. Some of them were Alice in Wonderland, things from Harry Potter, Disney Princesses, animals and spooky creatures but we couldn’t find Where’s Wally.

Mrs Russell and Miss Gardener set up a challenge to dress up as as many characters from different books as we can. Also to see if we could read 500 books as a school of 420. We got a free book token. Some of the books were Alex Rider, SuperTato, The day we met the queen and many other wonderful books.

It was a wonderful World Book Day and we all enjoyed it very much.

A story box is were you can give clues to a story that you can choose. Every child impressed the teachers with their outstanding story books! Example:Harry Potter Boxes which were full of trains, wands and hats. We really enjoyed the effort that all the children put into this project and thank you.

Easter Egg Appeal

This Year, we are once again taking part in the Easter egg appeal for the eighth year.

The appeal is for less fortunate children around Bradford. At our school, we try and help them as much as we can to either raise money or give up something for others .In past years, we have collected over a hundred eggs.WOW. It is such a fantastic effort!

We always get informed by an assembly with Mr CL that every one enjoys because we always enjoy helping others and being kind. We cannot wait to see how many we bring in. Hopefully, we beat last year’s record!

Superhero Day for Reception

Today the small reception classes were able to dress up in a superhero outfit for the day.

They dressed up as many superheroes such as super woman, wonder woman, batman, hulk, Elsa and lots of other wonderful outfits. Also the teachers dressed up!!!! They looked amazing too! They were dressed up like they were actually them. To be honest we couldn’t even tell the difference between the real superheroes and children. I bet they were using their superpowers to defeat the trash terror!

They perfected their superhero moves in today’s training. They also made perfect superhero snacks for the perfect superhero mission. The children also dressed perfectly for the role to save the world!

I bet that they enjoyed it very, very much and have been amazing heroes for today.

Year 4 Times Tables Meeting

Last Night, at 5:30, the one and only Mr Hodges hosted a Times tables meeting with Miss Philip and Mrs Wardell.

What they did was let parents Come in so that the teachers could talk about the importance of times tables. In the meeting, they talked about that they need to know up to 12×12 by the end of Year 4.

The Year 4’s have to do a test at the end of the year to see how well they know their tables. However, it is more important that they know their table facts for fractions, division, long Multiplication and much, much more! By knowing the times tables really fast you can get better at all these thing. To get better use times table rock and hit the button.
