Class 10's Bear Hunt for World Book Day

Class 10's Bear Hunt for World Book Day  1

 

The snow may have delayed us, but the Burton Road whole school story was a massive success and it was lovely to see the youngest and oldest children come together to celebrate the magic of books! Here's class 10's contribution, proving we're not too old to still go on a Bear hunt! Sponsorship contributions are still welcome. 

Want to get ahead of the game on Monday? Here’s this week’s Star Books Cup of clarification to solve ...and well done Emily - picked out if the hat for clarifying ‘incontrovertible ‘.

It was a draw between Sparta and Athens in the Greek Tucker Trial...the olives and chilli hummus ‘broke’ our tough Greeks! The falafel was a big hit though, Parents! 

 

 

 

Thank you all for making Greek Day such a huge success! Our learning covered geography, democracy, society, architecture and food...wow! 

Here we are, looking very regal! 

We hope you are looking forward to Greek Day on Thursday 8th! I’m hoping I won’t have to wear my sandles in the snow! Also get ready for the Greek Tucker Trial..will you be brave enough to try it?

Welcome to Class 10 - Mrs N Conway

This term we are set to 'Go Greek' on Thursday 8th March as we launch our new topic! Get ready to enjoy some Greek culinary treats, identify the location of this powerful ancient city and take part in a range of activities to investigate what influence the ancient Greeks have had on our society today. Log in for a weekly class blog, where we will share our super work, and find some exciting extra learning opportunities through the 'Brain Box Challenge'.

 

Get ready - serious learning is awaiting you! frown

On Monday, the Choir performed their Carol Concert to some nice people at a local old peoples' home and we were returned back to school with a chocolate Santa! On that same day, some people went to Louder Than Life to pitch their design idea in front of a panel of tough judges. They missed out on coming first by only one point! 

 

Last week, we went to St Pauls Church to perform the Carol Concert and the Christingle, which we enjoyed. On Tuesday we did a maths test which was not easy but not hard. We still have to learn whilst doing these fun things for Christmas! We also learnt about Sihks with Mrs Burkinshaw and on Wednesday we did a paragraph plan of a story about a day in a life of ao object... something Christmas themed. we're writing about what it would like to be a Christmas tree, a carrier bag...or even a frozen turkey! We also watched three plays class 1a and class 1b, KS1 and lower KS2. They were al brilliant! Also, some boys went to play football and hopefully win...oh, we've just found out they came second! Well done! Next week, we our having our Christmas party...YAH!!! But Mrs Conway's says there's still lots of learning to do as well! That's our blog of the week.

 

 

 

The Weekly Class 10 blog by... Alanna and Francesca!

Last week, the year 6 went to Crucial Crew and they learnt more about fire safety, internet safety and many more interesting things about life outside of school. They had so much fun! In P.E. and we did tag rugby (where were not supposed to tackle each other! ) and we've been practising for our Christingle Service. In ICT, we've begun coding and designing simple programs. Also, we've been doing Oliver Twist for our topic and describing the grisly characters in detail. We did some fun work about Bill Sikes, adding prepositions into our sentences. In R.E, we're learning about Sikhism, and have been learning how to make our own menus in French. On Wednesday we sorted our speaking parts for the Christingle service and on Thursday, the junior wardens discovered first aid awareness and had to do CPR on a mannequin. (Great - I might need some help after cheerleading training! Mrs Conway!)

 

On Friday, we had our awards assembly, where Mr Harris commented on how many awards were from class 10 and Sophia was the first person to get a Silver award! Yay!

That is your class 10 blog for this week and we had fun! To find out more ,look on class dojo.

This week has been mostly about trophies, sport...and frogs!

 

We started by winning the attendance cup - well done class 10! Keep on coming when you can and keep on learning!

 

On Monday we started off a new topic about Oliver Twist straight after half term and started tennis in P.E and we really enjoyed it. Wimbledon here we come! French was really interesting learning about food (they eat frogs!!!) and in I.C.T with Mrs Burkinshaw, we looked at websites which are not always safe. This was fun and interesting. In science, we were comparing the life cycles of amphibians and reptiles and humans - we actually have some things in common with a frog! Can you remember? It's to do with reproduction!

 

There's been a lot of sport going on. Leo Cosgrove and Emily ran in an amazing final at Cannon Hall with team Activ ;Leo came 6 which meant he made it to the Yorkshire finals. On Thursday some of the class went out to do football at Kirkbork  - team a ,  team b and a c team. There wasn't many people left! C team didn't get through the group stage and team b got knocked out in the quarters by Burton Road a in a really close match and Burton Road a went on and win it. The girls went to a tournament and got knocked out late in the semis. Let's hope next week is just as active!
