Autumn 2 2019 Wk 1 - 4
Week beginning 11th November 2019
Members of the school council represented the school at both the Hoyland and Jump Remembrance Services on Sunday. It was lovely to see so many of our children at the event as part of other groups too. The children represented the school so well. Thank you.
Year 4 and 5 enjoyed some Road Safety workshops this week delivered by the Barnsley Road Safety Team. They learnt all about how to keep themselves safe on the road.
Year 3 enjoyed a trip to the Yorkshire Museum this week to experience life in Roam
Year 3, 4 5 and 6 have had 'Rubbish' workshops this week in school from a Waste Treatment Facility in Rotherham. The children learnt all about recycling, managing waste and really enjoyed the sessions. Here are some photos of Year 4.
As promised, here are some photos of last weeks Year 6 trip to Crucial Crew.
Year 3 made shields this week as part of their topic 'Who were the Romans and what did they do for us?'. They are fantastic! Great work Year 3!
Thank you for your generosity this week - we have raised £184.80 for Children in Need through having our non-uniform day today. Thank you everyone!
Things to look out for next week...
We have nothing extra planned for our curriculum next week - we'll still have lots of photos to show you so keep looking back!
Week beginning 4th November 2019
We have had Parliament Week in school this week and many debates have been taking place. Reception voted for their favourite part of Bonfire night (fireworks/bonfire or sparklers), Year 2 voted for all fireworks to be noiseless, Year 3 voted to keep afternoon break, Year 4 voted to keep school uniform compulsory, Year 5 voted to keep testing in school and Year 6 voted to keep homework. It's been a busy time but everyone enjoyed it and the photos below give a flavour of what the children have done.
Children in Year 3 have been thinking about Remembrance Day and looking into the life of Reginald who worked in the cotton mill in WWI. They wrote letters to him thanking him for everything he did. Here is just one example of some beautiful work. Well done Year 3.
There were no sporting events today.
'Play in a Day' was a huge success as Year 6 performed 'Romeo and Juliet' to the whole school and Year 6 parents after learning it in just one day (with a little help from Konflux Theatre). It is a real highlight of the school year and all staff love it - this years was particularly funny! Well done Year 6.
Year 6 enjoyed a trip to Crucial Crew to lean about how to keep themselves safe on public transport and online, how the wrong choices could end in court and how to deal with anti-social behaviour and fires among many other topics. We will post photos here later!
We are lucky to the have the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths team in school working with classes over the next few weeks. This week they worked with Year 1 and 2 and used 3D pens to create the bows for a kite (Year 1) and fireworks (Year 2). The children loved it and we look forward to seeing more work in the coming weeks.
