Y34 Maths Challenge

8 budding mathematicians from Years 3 and 4 attended a challenge evening at South Craven secondary school on Wednesday.

The children tackled sudokus, solved problems, entered into a rapid mental maths relay and undertook a construction task to build a freestanding tower using just straws and paperclips!

The event was enjoyed by all and provided a fantastic opportunity for an early insight into secondary school life.

Well done to all of the team (Alex, Ben, Ronnie, Umayma, Isaac, Rory, Keyaan and Fin) who earned a 4th place finish out of 7 schools.

Some of the Silsden Team!

Year 5 Taster Day at South Craven

Strike a pose!

The Year 5 children enjoyed a taste of secondary school life on their visit to South Craven today. Working in different groups, they were given a sporting or performance experience in the morning (dodgeball and cricket, drama or dance) and a technology experience in the afternoon (making a torch keyring).

We hope they all enjoyed the day and perhaps are already looking forward to the opportunities that we will come their way from September 2019!

Y5 at South Craven

The Year 5 children got a taste of life at secondary school today with a fun-packed trip to South Craven School. 

Alongside other Y5 children from the area, they experienced sessions in the Performing Arts (where they were taught new drama or street dance skills) and Technology (where everyone made keyring torches).

We hope you all enjoyed the day. What was your favourite part?
