White rose competition

Blooming marvellous!

These are our competition entries for the Bloomin’ Yorkshire Competition to help raise awareness for Kidney dialysis. Years 3, 4, and 5 entered and one entry from each class was chosen. The winner could win an I-Pad and money for the school!!

Thank you everyone for your marvellous entries and let’s keep our fingers crossed for the competition.

This was made by a pupil from Class EF. She  used two pieces of card with the white rose logo on. It was coloured using felt tip colours and laminated to make it water proof. They were then attached together using a split pin and white ‘tac’ was placed between them to keep them from touching so it was 3D.

This was made by one of our year 4 pupils. She made the rose head from card and decorated it with jewels. Then the stalk held it upright as it stands in a glass jar.

This was created by one of Mr Green’s class who has used recycled, coloured tiles which have been attached to a piece of wood and grouted.

Everyone is thinking about Europe this week!

For TASC day our topic was the European football championships, Class EF studied Italy and made pizzas, football hats, flags and designed our own logo.

 

Creswell Crags

Class EF went to Creswell Crags as part of their ‘Stone Age’ topic, they took part in lots of fun activities and really enjoyed their special day.

Tumbling Champion

Last October we shared some fabulous news that one of our pupils won the club, grade 2 gold medal for  tumbling. The good news is that she has achieved grade 3 whilst competing in the event at Barnsley Metrodome. She gave a first-class performance once again and in a very close competition she was announced the winner. Everyone at school would like to pass on their congratulations, well done and much deserved!

Paintings Andy Warhol style

Class EF created paintings in the style of pop artist Andy Warhol. They had a wonderful time experimenting with shape, colour and pattern. The paintings were fantastic  with everyone completing a picture worthy of our new art gallery board!

 

Stone Age Life

On Monday 22nd February Class EF took part in a Stone Age workshop. They did short role plays to travel back in time! What was it like to live in those days? What did people eat? Where did they live? How did they survive? 

By the end of their workshop the children knew all about Stone Age Britain!

True Grit!

IMG_2553We must give a mention to a brave and determined  performance from our year 6 pupils. Following on from the Barnsley cross-country meet at Cannon Hall we found ourselves representing Barnsley in the South Yorkshire finals. Our boys were competing against the ‘cream’ of the county with over thirty competitors, they gave their ‘all’ in demanding conditions and finished a very creditable tenth and eleventh. 

Well done boys we are proud of your efforts, showing true grit and fantastic determination!

 

Reduce, reuse, recycle!
