An unidentified flying object has been spotted flying over Nessfield Primary School. Mr Smith wittnessed the unusal event. Children were puzzled as they came in to school this morning and were greeted by a strange layer of green slime and unusual ash circles on the ground. What happened over night last night? We await the arrival of the AIU (Alien Investigation Unit) to give us more answers. What do you think has happened?

After Christmas, Year 4 will start their new topic all about Australia. We will learn about where Australia is in the world, what it is like as a country, different cities and landmarks. We will then move on the learn about the Aboriginal people of Australia.
So….Year 5 and 6, what can you remember about Australia? What was your favourite part of the topic? What did you learn?
Year 4…..can you think of some questions of things you would like to find out. These will help us with planning our learning.
Let’s see how many comments we can get!
This week’s Blogger of the Week was Joshua C. He was chosen because he had commented on nearly every post on our blog. There are currently 142 posts, so this was no mean feat. Well done Josh

We are still working hard to reduce, reuse and recycle any waste we produce and were rewarded this week with a cheque for £94 for our recycled textiles. The money goes into our school fund which pays for activities to enhance the curriculm. This could be visits, visitors or specialised resources.

For the last 8 weeks a group of children from Years 5 and 6 have been attending a Sportshall Athletics club run by Mrs Long and Miss Naylor. Throughout that time they have been developing their skills in a range of different events such as speed bounce, vertical jump, chest throw, javelin, long jump, triple jump and running relays. On Monday 12th November these children represented Nessfield at the Oakbank Athletics competition. They all competed very well indeed and showed good sportsmanship throughout the event. The team finished 4th overall so unfortunately didn’t qualify for the finals but all the children should be very proud of their achievements and Miss Naylor and Mrs Long are pleased with the commitment they have shown. Thank you to all the parents that transported children to the event.
Would like to develop your athletic skills next year? Which events out of the ones mentioned would you like to compete in and why? Can you name any famous athletes that compete in these events?
Well done to all the runners from Key Stage 2 that took part in the cross country race on Wednesday. All the children completed a course between 1-1.5 miles through the grounds of Cliffe Castle. The course was very challenging as they ran across different terrains and there were some steep hills too! Thank you to all the grown ups that took their children to the event and supported them. A special thank you to Mr Bell who came and ran the course as well. If you are interested in becoming a member of a running club, Keighley and Craven athletic club are always looking for new members. The following link will give you more information:
The next race is on Wednesday 23rd January at Cliffe Castle. Do you think you would be able to run a mile? If you ran the race which part did you think was the hardest and why?
