Today is the last day for the Y6 Bloggers so they are having a party to celebrate their time at bloggers. Also, it is a very emotional time as all the year 6’s are leaving for high school. Even though its scary, its exciting at the same time. They are currently practising very hard for their Leavers Production 2015 about The Jungle Book! For the next couple of weeks year 6 should sit back and relax. Do you agree?
Good luck year 6!

Today, 6KW worked with K’nex to make their very own Rollercoasters! They had to be very creative and willing as this activity was HARD! Altogether it took 2 whole hours to make a finished roller coaster that was presentable. It took a lot of teamwork too. Also for the past few weeks we have been designing our own theme parks with £500,000 to spend. We had a list full of things to include like
Major roller coaster 10 (squares) £50,000
and so on. Then we did maths work on it such as how much money we would earn from people coming in and what people bought from food stalls/gift shops.
We have loved this project!

Throughout the week, an amazing comic artist came in and taught us how to draw and inspired us too! Kev has drawn pictures for Beano before and he is very talented at drawing! We all made our own characters (or used ones from cartoons) and made our own comics. Then, he drew the front cover of our big comic where all of our characters and comics went in. After that, we all drew little symbols on the cover whilst he drew a portrait of each of us! Everyone in the school loved Kev and wish he could come to our school again!
On Wednesday, Year 3 and Year 4 had their Sports day!

On the 11th of May 1985, a terrible thing occurred – the Co-operative stand in the Coral Windows stadium set on fire. 56 eager football fans (54 Bradford supporters and 2 Lincoln supporters) were killed.
To remember this tragic event we are having a Claret & Amber Day where we are asking pupils to wear claret and amber coloured clothing (obviously Bradford tops if possible) on the 8th of May. Children can wear football kits (preferably Bradford) or a PE Kit. Children are asked to bring in a minimum donation of £1.
All profits made will go to the Bradford Burns Unit.
Please help us to commemorate this tragic event and raise money for this amazing cause.
Lots of other schools in the area are also supporting this event. Click here to read about it in the T&A

This week year 6 had a Science Week. We have done various activities such as; making healthy and junk posters, tasting herbs, map work and guessing, writing a debate about healthy and unhealthy foods and finding out what the calories where in different foods.
We found out there are many different herbs that get put inside foods that we eat every day including: Dill, Coriander, Sage, Chives, Cumin and Thyme. We had a tasting session to sample them all. These were mostly strong tasting and didn’t taste very nice.
We learnt a lot about healthy and junk foods from writing a debate and making a poster about them (we are experts now!).
Did you learn anything about science this week? If you did, then what about?
On Tuesday and Thursday, it was Parents Evening! Parents Evening is where children’s parents come in and find out how well they’ve been doing in school so far, finding out what their children’s behaviour is like, what their levels are in all core subjects and get a chance to look at their children’s books. Hope you had a good parents evening! Did yours go well?
