This week, year 5 were lucky enough to receive a visit from an expert who spoke knowledgeably about the circulatory system and taught the children the importance of keeping their hearts healthy through a balanced diet, exercise and plenty of sleep! The pupils also had the opportunity to use a stethoscope for some hands on learning! What a treat!
A massive well done to everybody that took part in the Y3 Chance to Dance Easter School. The performance you put on was absolutely amazing.
We are so happy and excited to announce that the winners have been selected and will be starting their tuition at Hazelbiz Performers Academy in September. Well done girls, we can’t wait to see how you get on as your dance journey continues.
Today, 3HJ took on the role of news readers, presenting their research about the Triangular Slave trade and the lives of Equiano and Mary Prince. Each group worked well together to plan and write their scripts which were carefully practised and performed to the whole class. Future journalists in the making!
Today the children pretended to be news readers and presented their research from yesterday about Mary Prince. They pretended they were the first people to report on Mary Prince, telling the class everything about her, from her time as a slave to the part she played in the abolition of slavery.
What a fabulous time we all had at the long anticipated Young Voices concert in Sheffield Arena last week. Each and every child was an absolute credit to our school and all sang with such passion. The dances moves weren’t too bad either! 😎 Massive thanks to all the staff who accompanied us too!
3HJ have thoroughly embraced our third and final case study. This week has seen us stacking ostinato, reading rhythms and playing them simultaneously using non-tuned percussion.
Maths lessons are far more enjoyable when they include a murder mystery! This week, y5 put their investigative skills to the test to solve the mystery of who murdered the young millionaire, Henry Baskerville, following a dinner party at Baskerville Hall. Our young detectives had to calculate the perimeter of all the rooms in the hall in order to generate an 8-digit code, which opened the padlocked journal of the murderer. Who needs Sherlock Holmes with y5 on the case!
It was wonderful to spend this year’s World Book Day with both years 5 and 3 as they celebrated their favourite works of literature with some fantastic costumes and themed activities!
