On Thursday, Year Five went to the Coal Mining Museum. We took part in lots of fun activities including going down a mine, exploring a victorian room full of fascinating facts and we did a quiz to see what equipment we knew.
Then we went to a large room where a women acted what it was like when they mined the coal. Everyone was really enjoying it when some people came up to the front to do some acting.
Next the really fun part it was time to go in the coal mines. It was a little cold down there but we got to spread coal on our face and explore all the different machines that there were. We couldn’t believe how dark it was down there! We are glad we don’t work there!

On Friday the 6th of December, Mrs Keighley (our head teacher) held an inspirational assembly about a book called’ My Princess Boy’.
First, she played an amazing song that was named Rainbow-land by Mylie Cyrus. At the beginning, no-one knew the words to sing along but as it got going, lots of people started to join in with the wonderful lyrics.
When the song had finished, Mrs Keighley started reading a book called ‘My Princess Boy’. It was based around the theme ‘Don’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover’.
We thought this was a good assembly as it taught us not to judge people for being themselves.
I ( Mollie) thought that it was great for younger children because of the moral behind it. I ( Eleanor ) thought that this assembly was a brilliant example for kids to not judge people for what they look or sound like. I ( Ruby ) thought that it was a brilliant assembly.

On Wednesday, Mrs Scott ran a choir for KS2 .This took place at the start of dinnertime.
In the lesson, we sang Christmas carols for twenty minutes. As it was the first lesson, we started off with the backing track and a couple of times we tried to sing without it.
The amount of people shocked both us and Mrs Scott as 60 people showed up! What a great number! All these people promised to show up every week so that we can be the best! Mrs Scott mentioned a lot of places she wanted to take the choir such as the Idle walking nativity.
We enjoyed this as it brought a lot of people together and singing makes us happy.

Colin and Natalie came to visit on Tuesday and deliver another of their great assemblies.
They began the assembly talking about pizza and the process of ordering pizza from takeaway. Colin talked about what comes first when making a pizza, which was dough, then tomato sauce. After that, they said it was the cheese, then toppings. We disused the different toppings and we agreed on mushrooms and tomato.
Later on, they informed us of how many miles away where the ingredients home places were. We totalled the miles up, and came to the conclusion that overall, the pizza had traveled about 56,100 miles to get to us.
The lesson of this assembly was to be grateful that food can travel that far, just to get to our door. We couldn’t believe how far our food travels and are very lucky that we have such an amazing choice.

On Tuesday the 15th we had an exciting neon disco that was organised by our PTFA. There were sweets, hot dogs, refreshments, flashing lights, and lots more!
First , it was Key Stage 1 from 5.00 to 6.00 then it was Key Stage 2 which was from 6.15 to 7.15. It was two pounds entry and we had lots of fun with dancing, singing and flashing disco lights. In Key Stage 2 we could buy friend ship bracelets, neon glasses, flashing fruit rings , flashing finger lights and lots of other things. Everyone looked funny wearing their neon accessories while they danced.
We had lots of fun dancing and singing with our friends in our bright clothes. We enjoyed it so much we can not wait for the next one!

HARVEST TIME. This afternoon, we went in to assembly to watch a food bank presentation and we were asked to bring in food to help people who aren’t as lucky as we are.
The lady was a volunteer in the food bank and she came and explained what foods we should bring in. She said we should bring in canned food and long lasting food. The only thing is that they don’t have fridges or freezers so we can’t have anything that goes in either.
We think we are lucky not to have to worry about food and will try to help those who need it.

Year six went to a hockey camp in Hanson with Mrs Dobson to perfect their hockey skills and compete against other teams. The boys did really well in winning most of there games because of great teamwork. Mrs Dobson said that if we win in our next games, we will qualify for the Bradford winter games at Bradford Grammar School! How exciting! Good luck at your next meet boys!
On the 9th of July, children were sent down to the hall to watch the very last assembly by Year 6.
The stage was up, the lights were out, and everyone was quiet. Nobody had known what they were doing until now, they were doing ‘Albie’. Albie was the male version of ‘Annie’.
As you should know, the story follows a young child called Annie (or in this case Albie) who was abandoned at an orphanage by her parents when she was a baby. Her family left a locket and a note saying they would come back for her. She then spends her whole life searching for her family until she meets a rich and famous man called Mr Worbucks (or Mr Stacks for the modern version.) It is a great film and I recommend you watch it.
The whole of Year 6 (both 6G and 6R) worked as hard as they could to make this production perfect, and it was all worth it.
It was full of singing, dancing jokes and more. There wasn’t a single person that forgot their lines or what scene they were in. Everyone was simply brilliant!
It was a lovely production and all children and adults loved it.
