World Book Day
The theme of World Book Day this year was to share a story. Each class paired up with another class and the children shared stories with each other. Different adults came to our classes to read a story. We all dressed up as different book characters and took part in lots of fun book related activities.
During our art lessons, we have been using clay to make our own Ming vases. We have been studying the different patterns and styles of vases.
Year 5 had a theme day linked to our theme of China. We spent the day making Willow patterned plates, learning how to speak Chinese and writing our names.
We also learnt a traditional Chinese dance and performed it to the Year 4 children. We all really enjoyed the day!
In Science, we have been learning about air resistance and have been making parachutes and testing them out. We investigated the best material to make them from and timed them falling.
As part of our Enterprise Week, years three and five enjoyed meeting employees from the Royal Bank of Scotland and working with them on the moneysense programmes. In year five, the children looked at different mobile phones and their tariffs in order to work out what the best deal would be for them. Both the children and the visitors had a fantastic day and the children learned some valuable life skills about managing money and making sensible choices.
Colne Valley Railway
Year 5 had a wonderful time at Colne Valley Railway being Victorians for the day. We watched a Punch and Judy show, danced along to a traditional fairground organ, learnt about medicine in Victorian times, spent time being taught in a Victorian classroom and even went on a real steam train where we got to meet Queen Victoria herself! We all had lots of fun!
