Mr Hughes : Year 5

Welcome to Year 5 and our Jubilee celebrations and creations! We have been designing crowns from clay, bunting, dream catchers and fact files based on key events of the 1960's! We all dressed up in outfits inspired by the 1960's and visited the school museum to see what other year groups were showcasing from their decades.  

Hollywood Film Maker

Recently we had a visit from Rob Schulze, a Hollywood film maker who has been involved with movies such as James Bond, Harry Potter and many of the Marvel movies!  

Bolton Abbey trip

The children went to Bolton Abbey as part of our rivers topic. We looked at the features of a river as well as what causes erosion. 

Tree Planting

As part of the Bradford Schools initiative,  all the children in school had the opportunity to plant a tree within our school grounds. This was to enrich our school and help our local environment. 

 Nell Bank 2022!

Using maps, the children had to find number clues around the Nell Bank estate. This involved some super map and compass reading skills!

Bee Lady

The children have been learning about the importance of our trees and meadows from Catherine, who works for the Yorkshire Dales Trust. At the front of school the children have planted seeds to grow our own meadow to encourage bees to pollinate. 

Bolton Abbey trip

We also explored the Bolton Abbey ruins and learnt a little about the history behind this very famous landmark!

Gardening Club 

Mrs Walbank and her enthusiastic gardeners are working on our school gardens again as the warmer and drier weather returns. Good luck with this years harvest!

DT - Pizza Making 

In DT, we have been designing and making our own pizzas from original ingredients. The children had great fun and were helped by Julie our kitchen manager and Albert's grandad!
