Welcome to Class 12!
Miss Densley, Mrs Tallant and Miss Parfitt would like to welcome you to the fabulous Class 12! Our year 5 and 6 pupils work hard for rewards all year and constantly impress us with their dedication, enthusiasm and work ethic. We work together to support each other in lessons and get the best out of every day. This term, we are learning all about Titus Salt, who is our Greatest Yorkshireman, the mining community of Barnsley and forces in science.
We would love for you to take a look at everything we have got up to this year below.

National Poetry Day 2018
Whilst the Year 5 children have been enjoying a day at the National Coal Mining Museum, the Year 6s have been celebrating National Poetry Day. They started the day by reading a range of different poems and then went on to find out how different poems can be performed. The children then split off into groups and worked on their own performance of 'In Flanders Fields'. The final performances were amazing and each and every one of you did a great job! Well done!
Ashleigh, Holli and Anya - 1st Place
Florence - 2nd Place

The Primary School Enterprise Challenge with Paul Robson
Classes 11 and 12 had a brilliant opportunity to plan their own radio show today. They worked in small groups to decide who their ideal audience would be as well as what music they would play. The children had a target of £2,500 to make during their show and they could do this through selling advertising slots. The children also had the opportunity to get a national DJ to appear on their show. Once the children had spent the day building their brand, they presented their show to the three judges (Mr Harris, Mrs Brookes and Miss Densley) who scored each of the groups on a range of things from their presenting skills to their financial strategy. All the children did so well and put forward some brilliant ideas and concepts. The winning team will now prepare for the final where they will compete against other schools to hopefully be named the overall winner! Have a look at some of the photos of the day below.

Who's Yorkshire's Greatest?
We believe that Titus Salt is Yorkshire's Greatest and we presented all of our information this morning to the governors and the rest of KS2.
I am so proud of every single one of you for having a speaking part. A super effort to win 3rd place against some really tough opponents.

Learning in Literacy
We have been learning all about Titus Salt in Literacy this week to prepare for the Greatest Yorkshire Person assembly to the governors next week. Today, we looked at Salt's great achievements in his life that make him the greatest! The children identified the most important 9 achievements of Salt's life and then put them into a diamond 9. At the top of the diamond were the achievements that they thought were the most important and at the bottom, were the least. The children used their speaking and listening skills to argue which achievements should be placed at the bottom or at the top of the diamond.
