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.

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.

On Thursday, it was World Book Day and Mrs Russell and Miss Gardener had an assembly about world book day and she said if you want, you can make a story box.
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.

Today, at the end of the day, Mr Patterson did an assembly focusing on good sportsmanship. He started with one game and ended with three games. There was a lot of screaming and clapping and now we will tell you how the games went.
The first game was when he asked several teachers to stand up and he gave them two pence. Then he told them to flip the coin and whoever got heads had to sit down. After all that, we finally found a winner which was Mrs Pringle and she got to keep the pence.
After that, he told Eesa to come up and try to catch a piece of paper when he dropped it for five house points. On his last try, he finally got it and calmly went and sat down. Mr Patterson thought that it was great of him to not go crazy about him winning. All contestants did very well and had a lot of fun.

On Tuesday, all of the amazing bloggers and Mr Hodges performed an amazing assembly about Safer Internet Day (that we did a week early). We all had important roles in it. As an example, Leah was an adult and Mr Hodges was a child who had a mean message sent to him.
First we started off by saying what Online Identity meant to us. Each and everyone of us had a line to read out. After that, we showed the school what Free to be me meant. Also we explained what free represented. F=Friendly, R=respect and the two Es represented equal.
Then, we played a game called have you ever. So Mr Hodges said, “Have you ever used an emoji?” If you had ever done that, you had to put your hand up. Next, Mr Hodges got a mean message and ripped it up. That isn’t the correct thing to do. We had a flashback and did the right thing which is to show a trusted adult.
We think that the whole school liked the assembly.

On Thursday, Michael who works at rock steady, came in to school and did an interesting workshop. Michael taught some of us who paid for lessons. We were in a small band and all go the chance to play different instruments.
We played the drums, guitar, keyboard and some people were vocalists.
All of the people who did this found it a fun, musical experience and loved the experience. We cannot wait until we can see the rock assembly.

Today, Friday 24th, Paul, a guy from a Bradford City fundraising charity came to school just before the end of the day. He explained about the penalty shoot out, which is February 13th, and all the prizes your child can win!
For three pounds you can get a Bradford city medal and for ten pounds you can get a pump bag and a medal. You can also get a football and a medal for twenty pounds. For all of them it is thirty pounds. The grand prize is all of them but there is a Bradford city signed football signed by all of the players. This will be won by the person who raises the most sponsor money.
The Shoot Out
When it comes to the day, everyone will be taking a shot against the famous Billy Bantam, who’s also known as the Bradford city mascot, we will take one penalty anyway but if your bring your form in, you get four! So bring them forms in children! We already can’t wait to see Billy.

This afternoon, 6G performed a fantastic assembly about micro-organisms, the story of Edward Jenner and 6G’s New Years Resolutions.
First, they talked about micro-organisms. Micro-organisms are things that are all around you, they are even on your clothes!
Edward Jenner was a person who discovered the cow pox cure. He also was a scientist who worked on different people including a young boy and a farmer girl. Eddie was very curious and decided to investigate if there was cure. And in the end, he succeeded and solved the cure! This is how he became famous. That easy!
6G’s New Year resolution were then shared and some examples are like being better at football, better hand writing and lots of other things. We hope they manage to achieve them!

On Tuesday morning, Mr Hodges presented an assembly called The Huey’s New Jumper. We all enjoyed the assembly and we learnt lots about stereotypes. Everybody thought they were cute!!!!
Rupert, the main Huey, made a big difference from looking the same and doing the same things. All the Hueys did the same, ate the same and looked the same but Rupert wanted to be different. At home, he knitted his own jumper. He celebrated his differences by wearing it outside. Not all of them were happy about this .
Soon after one of them joined in, then more then did, then they all did and they were all the same again. We learnt that it is okay to be different and that it is important to do whatever makes you happy and feel comfortable. Even if that may mean being ‘different’.

I myself and the other bloggers are happy for this new year (and decade). As we are turning a new leaf, I wanted to talk about new year’s resolutions.
There are many types of resolutions like ones for school, for home and ones for yourself. As you can see, there are many different types but for some reason I always have the same one and it never lasts the full year. To be nice to my brother! However, this year I had another resolution on my mind after I broke the first one 2 minutes in. My new resolution is to stay vegetarian as I slipped a bit in 2019. This year I am hopefully going to stick to my promises.
I hope you have had a good start to 2020.
