New Teachers

On Wednesday, all the pupils in school met their brand new teachers!

Reception got either Mrs Wardell or Miss Gardener. Year 1 discovered it would be either Mrs Scott or Mrs Pinder. Year 2 got Mr Rhodes or Mrs Roberts. Year 3 got Mr Hodges or Miss Philips. Year 4 got Mrs Hall until Miss Javed comes back or Miss Lancaster. Year 5 got Mr Sidebottom until Miss Russell comes back or Mrs Gould.

On the same day, Year 6 went to their secondary schools. They spent a whole day there while we spent 45 minutes talking about: what we do, what we’re excited about and some classes also did some activities to get ready for next year.

We’re all looking forward to starting with our brand new teachers next year.

3RO’s assembly

On Friday the 22nd of March (today), 3RO had an assembly all about Ancient Egyptians.

In the assembly, the class talked about interesting facts associated with their topic Ancient Egyptians. They also looked at, artefacts from that time.

During the assembly, Year 3 showed the audience (a majority of the school) how to mummify! They mummified one of the children in their class and pulled out:

the stomach,

the liver,

the intestines,

the lungs.

They put these into canopic jars for the Ancient Egyptian gods.

In whole class art, they designed and made death masks.

I am sure that 3RO enjoyed learning their assembly and having fun in their class! We enjoyed watching it!

Year 3 trip to Leeds Museum

On the 28th of February, (yesterday) Year 3 travelled to Leeds Museum to learn all about the Ancient Egyptians. When they arrived, a kind lady greeted them and led them to a room to hang up their coats. After that, they split in to 3 groups of 10 that were used later in the day.

First,3R went into a room and sat down at three tables and talked about the Ancient Egyptians. Some of the people even got up and pretended to make someone into a mummy. Whilst they were doing that, 3Ro were upstairs looking at some of the Ancient Egyptian artefacts and a real mummy. It was really interesting!

They explore the exhibits searching for all the things that Ancient Egyptians were buried with such as jewellery, amulets and even fake feet and hands! They saw a mummy lying in its tomb and then had a go at mummifying a puppet themselves! They pulled out organs, rubbed it with oil and wrapped it in bandages.

What a great trip!

 

Year 3’s trip to Bradford Cathedral

On the 14th of February – on a Thursday – Year 3 travelled on a journey, which took almost 10 minutes to visit Bradford Cathedral.

When we got there, the entrance was decorated with flowers placed on black chairs with pillows behind the flowers. The first thing we did,  was sit down on pews and an adult called Maggie told us about what we were going to be doing today. The activities were: colouring in our own designed shoe, having a look at all the stones that were the oldest ones and the ones with people’s markings on ( not their names because they didn’t know how to in those days ) ; going around the cathedral making a tally chart of how many symbols they could spot and learning about the important places and items in a cathedral. We found it really interesting because we could see all of the things that we had been learning about in class. Alfie kept pointing out things like the altar and the lecturn!

When we had finished doing all of those activities we went back to school where all their parents were waiting for us.

We had a brilliant; fabulous time and so did all of the teachers who went with us. We loved learning a bit of history about the cathedral and seeing things in real life that we had learnt about in the classroom.

Year 3 Industrial Museum Trip

This Thursday, Year 3 went on a trip to the Industrial Museum. When they got off the coach, they entered the museum and met up with a woman called Piper who led 3R upstairs to learn how to turn wool into clothes while 3Ro looked around outside and drew something that caught their eye such as buildings that were made in the 1800’s.  The activities that 3R completed were pretend sheep shaving, spinning wool, weaving wool, combing wool, sorting wool and carding wool (you could say they were in a woolly situation!) Once they finished their activities 3RO met up with 3R to go and have lunch. Then,3R looked outside and did the activities that 3RO had done before and then Mrs Robert’s class did the wool activities.

Altogether everyone had a great day and had learnt a lot of new information about the 1800’s and industrial Bradford.

Year One Paint Days

Year 1 have had Art days this week with a lady come in to do mindful art exploring the seasons. They listened to the story called ‘The Story Orchestra’ and responded to it using paints, pastels, graphite and observational drawing so that they could make their own seasons book. All the children had an amazing time and would love to do it again.
