Year 5 Pupils become Maths Teachers! /

Today, some of the year 5’s went down to Y3/4 into Mrs Burkill’s maths class to model how to answer reasoning questions. I was super impressed with the clear explanations from my Year 5’s but also the hard work of the Year 3/4’s! Both classes learnt a lot today, with the Year 5’s realising that explanations can be quite difficult when you just know how to answer it yourself! Well done to everyone involved today, you worked really hard!

Young Entrepeneurs become Printing Artists /

    • Comments Off on Young Entrepeneurs become Printing Artists

On Thursday Class 11 had the privilege of meeting a professional print artist, Samantha, who helped them to create their advertising t-shirts with their own company logos!

First, Sam showed us how to create a template using craft foam and how we could create layers for our print. Some of us had to simplify our designs and adapt them which Sam and Jason helped us to figure out. Then, using the fabric inks we had a go at practising our print using our own templates on paper. It took us a few attempts to get the correct technique, but once we had mastered it we were given our t-shirts to complete our design! We re-used the same templates and the inks and we printed our company logos onto our t-shirts! Everyone’s t-shirts came out brilliantly and it was great to see the difference between each partners design as well.

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Jason and Sam for visiting us and helping us to create these fab designs! We will definitely be wearing these when we are advertising our game!

Take a look at us during the workshop and let us know what you think of our designs!

Today was our final let’s get active day, but the rain meant we had to do it indoors! This didn’t stop the whole school (including Year 5) taking part in activities.

This morning Year 5 took part in a mixture of dance, fitness, yoga and curling. This afternoon in Class 11, we have been playing badminton. Altogether we have had a fantastic day in Year 5 for the last let’s get active!

Take a look at some of us in action…

Election Time /

Today we completed this year’s SMSC project looking at British Values and specifically democracy. The children in Y5 held an open hustings where the 8 political parties were grilled before the votes were cast.

It was a heated debate in the school hall and tempers were flared as each party vied for recognition and support.

It was great to see the adult’s faces in the room as the candidates and fellow party members strongly expressed their opinions and fought for what they believe in.

It was definitely DEMOCRACY in action.

The results are in and posted around school. The Civic Party won a closely fought election by a simple majority of one. They also received nine second choice votes.

All the children have worked really hard over the last few weeks writing manifestos, preparing speeches and producing lots of publicity to convince the year group to vote for their party. I am really proud of what they have achieved and I agree with Barnsley East Stephanie Peacock, who recently said we may have a future local MP in Y5!

A hero speaks to Y5! /

Today Y5 had the opportunity to meet Troy Conner, veteran Parachute Regiment, who told us his life story. It was informative, moving and very thought provoking.

Please ask the Y5 children to tell you Troy’s story.

Here are a few photographs from his visit.

Yesterday we had our trip to the National Videogame arcade! It’s fair to say that we had an amazing day filled with playing games and more games! We also did a workshop where we got the chance to create our own games controller.

What was your favourite game you played yesterday? How did you find creating your own controller?

Take a look at us exploring the arcade!

Guess Who Maths! /

Last week we were applying our addition and subtraction skills to multi-step problems in maths. To make it a little more interesting, we played a game of guess who! The children worked in pairs to try to guess who I was thinking of. Every time they eliminated a character, they had to find them around the room and answer their problem. Everyone worked extremely hard and there was some excellent discussion between partners when they were trying to solve the problem!

Take a look at the game in action…

Which political party would you vote for? /

After the visit of Stephanie Peacock, our local MP, the children in Y5 have been split into 8 groups and will be starting their own political party.

Today they were thinking about a name, logo, slogan and 4 main manifesto pledges.

I am so impressed with how they are working together in their groups, assigning each other jobs and prioritising workload. I am really looking forward to seeing this develop over the next few weeks before we hold the political hustings just before half term.
