Great fun was had by all!

A great day was had by all in Harrogate! Big thanks to the Yorkshire Agricultural Society for a brilliant day (and the sun was shining too!).

We had a great day celebrating the start of the World Cup 2014! We designed carnival masks (inspired by Brazil), enjoyed the Samba Band, learnt some Salsa dancing and had a carnival parade in the sunshine.

May 2014 - Can we make rubbish sound good?

As part of our DT topic, we designed and made our own Musical Instruments.

May 2014 - Wacky Hair

We raised money for SwanUK with a wacky hair day!

Ursula Holden-Gill

Y5 and Y6 went to the library to listen to some stories told by Ursula Holden-Gill. Children all really enjoyed themselves and were inspired by Ursula's take on fairy tales. A great afternoon out!

Science and Engineering Week

We had a great time learning lots of new things in Science. In Y5, our main topic was flowering plants and the environment but we branched out a little bit! We also got to dissect daffodils and see exploding coke bottles. We invited parents in on Friday afternoon to see what we had been working on.

Think of a Number world record

We visited Elland Road to take part in a live maths lesson. Johnny Ball hosted and over 7000 children from all over Yorkshire attended.

Leeds Golden Owl Awards

We were nominated for our Fairtrade video (that we made last year). Unfortunately, we didn't win, but we had a great time dressing up and walking down the red carpet!

Look Into My World Preview Event

A few of us went to the Look Into My World preview at Leeds City Art Gallery. The exhibition is on over Easter, so if you are in Leeds then why not pop in and have a look?

"Hatch It" Chicks

We called into Reception to visit the chicks. They inspired us to do some descriptive writing!

Look Into My World

As part of our project we created large pieces of art work. We worked with artist Kate Genever and did made and printed our own tiles. Watch out for the finished art work in our exhibition shortly... All photos thanks to professional photographer David Lindsay.

Design Technology at RTHS

We were lucky to be invited for a DT afternoon at RTHS. Half of us made banana muffins and the other half had a go at designing our own logos and using a laser printer!

Tom Palmer Author Visit

We have had another author visit. Tom Palmer told us about his books and we even had a penalty shoot out!

Islam afternoon

We had a great Islam afternoon. Sukaina and Ali's Mums came in and other children brought things from home. It was great to share things and learn more about what life is like for Muslims in Leeds.

Oranges In No Man's Land

Our class text is Oranges in No Man's Land and we have enjoyed writing some great descriptions and having some fun with the oranges as we ate them!

Spring Term PE

Armley Mills Victorian Schoolroom

We visited the Victorian Schoolroom to see what school life would be like as a Victorian. There were lots of differences and we all had a great time. We were happy to get back to 2013 though!

We enjoy going to the library and choosing from the hundreds of interesting books.

Pizza Express

Half of us visited Pizza Express in Horsforth to find out about how pizzas are made. The rest of us will visit next week (watch this space for photos!).

As part of our "Look Into My World" project, we visited Leeds Art Gallery and City Museum for an "Inspiration Day". It was a great day out and we learnt lots about how art can tell a story.

Lawnswood Cemetery

To support our Victorian Topic, we visited Lawnswood Cemetery to see what we could find out...

James and the Giant Peach

We enjoyed our topic on James and the Giant Peach. We drew peaches, compared tinned and fresh peaches, painted the characters from the story and experimented to see what other fruit / vegetables could have been used instead of a peach.

Year 5/6 Problem Solving

On Friday mornings, we mix with Year Six to enjoy lots of fun problem solving activities.
