Y1 trip to the Industrial Museum

On Tuesday, Year one went on a fantastic trip to the Bradford Industrial museum. This trip started of with the section Jowett cars, where they looked at the first ever Jowett car to be made. They also got a chance to see the first Bradford van that was used to deliver the daily newspaper.

Secondly, Year 1 went to see the textile industry where they saw how the Victorians made clothes out of wool. This helped them to understand how the Victorians provided themselves with clothes.

Thirdly, they experienced how the Victorians used the printing machine of their day to print the daily newspaper. This was extremely different to what we use now in modern day.

Later on, they took a look at how workers and mill owners lived back then. Their houses were also different to modern day. These houses were made out of brick and stone, which is different to how they build them now.

Finally, they learnt how to wash clothes with a pillar designed by the victorious . They all got to take part in this event. It sounds like a great day and I am sure they had a brilliant time.

Year 2 trip to Idle church

On Wednesday, Year 2 went to the church in Idle where they met Mr and Mrs Frowd. Firstly, they read the Bible but they had to wear white gloves. They then looked at other things that are precious to Christians like the thorn crown and wine glasses.

After that, the children got a little rest before learning about new things. They first got told to sit on the floor and listen very carefully before the person started telling a story about Mary Jones. She wanted a bible but she couldn’t because there were non in welsh. So she walked 25 miles just to get a bible in welsh. She was also saving money for 6 whole YEARS!

It sounded like a fascinating trip and we’re sure Year 2 had a great time!

An amazing day at Blackpool for Year 6

Today, on the 4th of October, Year 6 went on an incredible trip to Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Both classes 6G and 6SR went.

Year 6 headed there to develop their team building skills, ability to work together and learn life skills by exploring a big place. They went on lots of fun and scary rides. Don’t worry though, you didn’t have to go on all of them because if you were scared of heights, nobody forced you! One of the scariest [but most enjoyable rides] was the Pepsi Max and I am sure most of the kids wanted to go on it.

I’m sure Year 6 had lots of fun there and that it was an amazing time.

Year 2 Mosque trip

This week, Year 2 visited the Mosque as a part of their learning about Islam.

First, they were introduced to a woman called Fatima. Fatima kindly took them to the washroom which is where Muslims would wash before praying.

Year 2 were also told that they had to cover their heads and take their shoes off. This was to show respect to the Gods.

Year 2 learnt a lot of things while on their trip, such as, Muslims have to pray 5 times a day, and they have these bracelets called ‘prayer beads.’

They had a lot of fun and enjoyed their trip.

We just want to give a special thanks to Reverend Colin and Natalie as well as a few parents and grandparents that came along and helped.

Reception visits the Rainbow Factory

On Tuesday the 12th of January (this week), the youngest year group -Reception- took a whole day school trip to the Rainbow Factory.

When they arrived, the children headed straight inside and began the magical trip and fun! During the trip they read the story of Jack and the beanstalk as well as acting it out which was really entertaining. After that, the children drew pictures imagining what would be in the giant’s pocket and a separate picture of what would be in Jack’s pocket. They were also fortunate to take part in some magic with the Mad Hatters Hat which was extremely exciting for all involved.

After all the fun in the morning, the children had a much needed and relaxing lunch! This was soon followed by a calming retelling of the the story of Alice in Wonderland! Finally, the children left the Rainbow Factory exhausted after a mesmerising day out of school. It sounded a fantastic trip and I am sure reception cannot wait for their next school trip!

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.

RG Final class assembly

Today, RG performed their final reception performance! It was absolutely astounding -everyone enjoyed it as they taught us all about their trip to Thornton  Farm.

 First, they met animals which were sheep, lambs, and then fed and also petted them. The next task was to go on a farm safari, a tractor ride – which they said was a very bumpy ride! They went over to the shed where a bull was and met its good friend who was farmer Benny.

After they told us what they thought of the bull, they moved on to telling us about their time in Reception and what they had learnt! They showed us their amazing maths skills, explaining to us all about pictographs and what they represent.  They then told us that they could spell, read and write. We then took a journey through their year with them and looked at pictures from September until now.

Well done RG!

 

 

 

 

 

 

4J class assembly

This afternoon, Year Four had their class assembly about their residential to Nell Bank. To start off, they sang a song (that they had learnt whilst on their trip) to show off all of the exciting activities they had done. Two people in bright-orange jackets led the song and put actions with it and the rest of 4J followed.

They began to tell the audience about what they had done on their first day: mini beast hunting! They showed everybody what they found on their hunt, which was a centipede, an earthworm (did you know they breathe out of their skin?) and a woodlouse. As a treat, they got to go to the adventure playground for a little while as well as the water playground, where they got to play and have fun.

After a long, much-needed sleep, it was time for the next adventurous day, where they told the school all about the 7.5 mile walk they went on, from Nell Bank to Cow and Calf and then back again! Whilst at the Cow and Calf, the children were told a story about a giant, who lived near a huge, old cliff, with big boulders that were scattered around, and they really enjoyed it.

Tired out from their walk, we were told all about their experience of going to the adventure playground, which wore them out completely! On the last day, Year 4 went pond dipping and showed us some pictures of what they had found such as, a newt, baby snails and lots of other animals. Next, was the fantastic den building, and got to tell their groups all about their houses that they had built – someone even made a chandelier!

Sad, but glad to get back, the children finally went home, back to their parents, who they were very glad to see as some of the kids had never gone away without their mum and dad before. The children loved their trip and would have loved to stay longer. They performed a fantastic assembly to Blakehill!
