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.

Democracy in action /

Today Y5 grilled our local MP Stephanie Peacock. She attended a 45 minute Q&A session in the school hall.

We were all really proud of the mature, responsible approach from our children.

Stephanie commented, that hopefully in the Hall was a future Member of Parliament for Barnsley East!

What did we learn about democracy from our visitor?

Snow Day Number 2! /

Good afternoon Class 11,

I hope you’re all enjoying the snow and making the most of snow day number 2! I’d love to see or hear about how you’ve all been keeping busy in the snow.

If you’re running out of ideas apart from the obvious snowball fights and building snowmen, then take a look at these…

  1. Identify snow tracks: Take a walk with your family and look out for animal tracks in the snow. See if you can decide which animal might have made them by observing the size and shape of thm. Make it into a competition and see who can identify the most tracks.
  2. Paint the snow: Grab some food colouring and mix with a little water. Find yourself a nice patch of snow and paint a picture or you can either decorate your snowman.
  3. Build a fort: If it’s starting to get a little too cold outside, then build yourself a fort with blankets and cushions. You could watch a movie or read one of your favourite books.
  4. Observe some snowflakes: If we get any more snow, then get a coloured piece of paper and catch the snow flakes as they fall. Use a magnifying glass to observe what they look like up close.

I hope you’re all having fun and staying safe! Let me know what you’re getting up to and I hope to see you all soon.

The Battle of the Ages! /

This term our topic is The Battle of the Ages. Year 5 have been battling it out between classes this week on behalf of the Ancient Egyptians and Mayans. Class 11 were battling for the Ancient Egyptians and researching the question: ‘What happened after death?’

Their task was to create a poster, using all the key vocabulary to answer this question. Yesterday, we presented our posters to all of Year 5 and Mr Fallon. The results were fantastic and with only 15 minutes to practise their presentation, both classes did a brilliant job! There are still lots we need to discover about the Mayans and Ancient Egyptians, so there will be plenty more opportunity to improve on our presentation skills along the way.

Take a look at each groups picture collage, showing them creating and presenting their poster.

Set construction in progress… /

Since starting the new half term, Class 11 have began the construction of their stop motion sets. Over the past few weeks we have developed lots of new skills including accurate measuring, sawing and hammering.

What has been your favourite part of the process so far? What are you still looking forward to?

Take a look at us developing our DT skills…

Local government democracy in action! /

Today we visited the Town Hall to meet the Mayor of Barnsley.

We grilled him in the Council Chamber and found out lots about democracy in local government.

Councillor Ennis was a great host and all the children got a chance to ask him a question just like at a full council meeting.

If you have any questions about the Mayor and the Town Hall we would love to try and answer them after our informative visit this morning.
