The Year 5&6 Boys took part in the Kwik Cricket Competition at Cross Bank Cricket Club, hosted by YourSchoolGames. The boys played exceptionally well.
Since returning to school after the Easter holidays, the children and their teachers embarked on an exciting project. The aim was to hatch chicks in an incubator in the classroom. Three important factors were kept in mind for the duration of the incubation process: temperature, turning the eggs and humidity. So far, 3 chicks have hatched and the children were excited to watch the hatching process. The children learned how a chick develops in the egg and how to care for and handle a newly-hatched chick.
As part of their target, helping the poor and needy, the Reception children went to Ummah Welfare Trust shop. The children brought items from home to help those in need and handed them personally to the charity worker.
More Science experimentation!
Step 1: Pour milk in a plate
Step 2: Drop different colour food colouring in the centre of the milk
Step 3: Dip an earbud in fairy liquid
Step 4: Dip the earbud into the milk to see how colour disperses and moves away from the earbud.
This year 'British Science Week' was from 8-17th March. Here are the first of many experiments by our KS1/KS2 students. Using Vinegar, Fairy Liquid & Bicarbonate of Soda with a drop of food colouring, we had our very own volcano eruption.
A big thank You to the Year 9's from Rida Girls High School for performing their version of Snow White And The Seven Dwarves for World Book Day. The children and staff had plenty of laughs and enjoyed the play.
World Book Day was lots of fun! The Reception Class theme was bedtime stories so the children came to school in their pyjamas. They made puppets, did a word hunt, made books, played word games, read on the computer and much much more!
Stepping into a world of imagination!
Children in Reception had a great time at Rainbow Factory, Leeds. They listened to an amazing story by a story-teller , dressed up as characters, played fun games to help the giant find his gems and even worked with an artist to tell their own stories and create their own characters.
Some of our Year 2&3 students took part in the foodstival hosted by Food Bank Dewsbury. The children loved making healthy treats and learned about eating healthy. This was followed by fun activities which the children eagerly took part in.
Year 5 visited Fired Art Design, Pontefract for their trip.
The students learned the art of pottery and clay making and immensely enjoyed making their own beautifully decorated clay plaques.
Thank you to PC Luke and PC Carol (of West Yorkshire Police, Dewsbury) for visiting our Reception Class. The children were extremely excited to meet the police officers and enjoyed the talk and activities about roadsafety and stranger danger.
For their trip to Ripon Museum, the Year 6 class visited the Courthouse and Prison & Police Museums.
In the courthouse they got an opportunity to take part in a historic trial in a Georgian Courthouse, and dressed their part as a defendent, clerk of court, magistrate, member of the jury, witness and court reporter.
At the Prison & Police Museum, the children did a role-play based on the story of notorious poachers and their arrest. They had a fun time dressing up and using the props of early policing and learnt how the police force and transportation was set up.
As part of National Storytelling Week, some of our children went to Barnfield Care Home to read to the elderly residents. They had a wonderful time reading stories of their choice and enjoyed their time speaking and sharing memories.
