Can anyone in Year 5 remember the scientific principals for each experiment?
Next Saturday (30th June), 6 children from Year 5 and 6 are running a market stall on Church Green in Keighley from 10am. This is part of the Step Up Enterprise Market Challenge competition run by Bradford Council.
The Enterprise group have designed their own ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ themed business called ’Mad Hatter’s Marvellous Kitchen’ selling home baked products included Queen of Hearts Jam Tarts, Mad Hatter Brownies and Alice’s Flower Cupcakes.
Earlier in the year, they managed to secure funding through a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style presentation to businessmen from Keighley.
Preparations are well underway preparing for the big day and the children would welcome as much support as possible on the day. Come and sample some of their tasty treats!!
Harisah and Muhammed brought a Royal family tree, they had worked well to put this together. We had fun working out who was who’s mum, dad, grandad and grandma.
Year 5 had been looking at lesser known Royals and Reece shared his balanced argument as to whether or not Richard III was the evil tyrant portrayed in the history books.
Nathan had been studying Harold and William I. He created this fantastic representation of The Bayeux Tapestry.
Imogen used The Queen as her main character and wrote a super story with a beginning, a problem and a resolution.
Sydney wrote a letter to The Queen telling her all about our school’s plans for the Jubilee Celebrations. This is the second side with the illustration of her family.
Year 4 designed and made commemorative plates, they had researched facts and events in The Queen’s life. They created their plates in a similar style to plates from the Silver and Golden jubilees The above plates were produced by Jake (upper) and Katie (lower).
Eesha had written about what she would do if she was Queen for the day.
Lewis brought his Jubilee poem and recited it to the whole school with confidence and clarity.
We had planned a street party for Nursery and Reception and a whole school picnic for the older children on our last day of this half term. Our youngest children went ahead with their outdoor eating, alas, the over night rain made the field too wet for the picnic so instead we had an indoor street party in the dining room. A quick decorating fix, children dressed in Red, white and Blue and lots of patriot music made it a lunchtime to remember. Take a look at the pictures below, can you find yourself?
