I am so proud to have been able to witness two of our talented Year 5 children perform in the Barnsley Young Musician Competition at the Civic today. They played amazingly well and both came away with a Gold Award.
We have had a fantastic day at the National Coal Mining Museum.
Some of our talented children in Year 5 will be competing in the Barnsley Young Musician Competition on Saturday at the Barnsley Civic. I am really looking forward to seeing them perform and I wish them all the best. I know they’ll do great!
In maths, we have been learning about area and perimeter. To help us to remember the difference between the two, we have created two short raps. We hope that you enjoy them.
Here is our fantastic brass music we have been working on with Mr. Dodd. These are a selection of some of the music we have been learning over the last few months.
It has been great to see another selection of Yorkshire Roses being designed at home. This time, the children have chosen to use the following media: lego, 3D pens, petals, leaves, beads, computer programmes such as PAINT, editing software and even plastic spoons.
In Topic, we have been learning how to read four-figure grid references and have learnt what some of the symbols mean which are used in Ordnance Survey maps. We then put our skills to the test by identifying places of interest on a map of South Yorkshire by following and writing grid references.
The children have been set a homework challenge of making a Yorkshire Rose by being imaginative with their choice of media. These are some of the resources that have been used so far: beads, sequins, glitter, paper, tissue paper, leaves, petals, rice and scourers. I love the imagination! The designs below are by the following children: Archie, Lexi, Aaron, Lilly, Emily, Isobel and Amelia. Well done to everyone and thank you parents for supporting your child with this task.
