We have been learning and reciting poetry this week in English. We learnt this one in under an hour using our own actions to help us. Mrs Broadbent was very impressed!
Whilst some of us watched England v Wales, the rest had a visit from Pets at Home. They brought rats, a snake and some lizards for us to look at.
We went to Ralph Thoresby High School for a DT lesson. We designed our own keyrings and got to see the laser cutter and the 3D printer. The designs will be scanned in and our keyrings should be with us later this week...
Y5 and Y6 went to the Harrogate Countryside day. The weather wasn't brilliant, but we still had a great time!
Some of us were lucky to be chosen to go to Ilkley tennis club for some tennis coaching. We also got to see some of the professionals playing in the Aegon cup.
We celebrated the Queen's official birthday. Fun was had by all!
We did lots of activities about staying healthy, including welcoming a visitor to speak to us about the importance of hand washing.
5B's book review of The Firework Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman.
We would recommend this book to children aged 8+. One member of 5B was quoted saying 'It's the best book I've ever read!'
'You want to be a firework maker? Walk into my flames!'
A girl named Lila, who is the main character in the story, must travel on a perilous journey to Mount Merapi to achieve her dream of becoming a firework maker.
This book is extraordinary. It has adventure, humour and fun.
We give this book ****.
Have a go at this game.
Can you do better than we did in class?
