Year six had a fantastic day in Blackpool. After reaching the top of the tower and visiting the dungeons they finished the day with a trip to the circus.
This week the Bowker Vale girls represented the school at football against Holy Trinity. It was an energetic, high octane performance from both sides which I’m delighted to say ended in a thrilling 4-3 victory for our girls. The respect, fair play and integrity shown by the team was an absolute credit to the school. They did themselves very very proud. Onwards and upwards to next season!
Year 5 had lots of fun in our English lesson looking at active and passive voice in writing.
Ed was brilliant and the best was brought out of the pupils by him! (See what we did there?!)
What an amazing trip year 2 had in Blackpool! We climbed to the top of the tower and reached 390 feet high. Standing on the glass floor was terrifying, but the children were very brave and enjoyed the experience. Before returning back to school, we had dinner by the sea and played on the beach! To top off a fantastic trip, we ended our day with an ice lolly.
Year two had a great trip to Blackpool today. They visited Blackpool Tower, where they enjoyed a 4D cinema experience and going up in the lift to the top of the tower. Everyone was very brave when they stood on the glass floor. Well done year two, you all showed the best version of you today!
We couldn’t end our Topic without a huge Norman feast. 4M baked their own bread for a main course and made rice krispee cakes for a dessert. We definitely had the most delicious smelling classroom in the entire school! As we imagined ourselves to be lords and ladies of the manor, we made our own crowns and coats of arms. We truly finished off the Topic with a Normans quiz. In typical 4M fashion, the children totally threw themselves into the spirit of things and we had a fantastic afternoon. Well done everyone!
5B were amazed at the enormous scale of our solar system when we made a model of it using different sized balls and toilet paper. In the picture, you are looking at Uranus (tennis ball) back to Jupiter (basketball) and the sun (8 children holing hands in a circle). By our calculations, Neptune is 170 sheets of toilet paper from the sun whereas Earth was only about 4 sheets away (but this is still 150,000,000km)!
Nothing quite like Sports Day in the sun! Have a look at our photos, poems and watercolour paints from the day.
What better way to round off our Normans topic by designing and creating our very own castles. What a great afternoon and what a fantastic team! Well done 4M!
