Wednesday 29th January 2019 – Gardening club update

Filed under: Clubs,Year 3,Year 4 @ 12:34 pm

Last week, BWJS received some lovely plants, bulbs and seeds from Haskins Garden Centre in West End. These were kindly donated as part of their community scheme which enables the garden centre to work with different schools and groups to support outdoor learning.

On Monday, Mrs Amos, Mrs White and the members of gardening club had a good sort through the bulbs and seeds ready for planting – it was very exciting to see the range of different seeds we had been given.

We are very grateful to Haskins for donating these seeds and plants to our school and we look forward to watching them grow!

Wednesday 22nd January 2020 – Year 6 Clay Lesson

Filed under: Art,Whole School,Year 6 @ 5:35 pm

The Year 6 children had an enjoyable afternoon learning various methods for constructing pots out of clay today. Having learnt about different types of clay that can be used for modelling, they watched a demonstrations of coiling, making a pinch pot, smoothing with hands/tools and joining extra parts such as handles. They then chose the techniques most appropriate for their own authentic Ancient Greek pot design and had a go themselves. Mr Senior and I were most impressed with the children’s positive attitude, resilience, problem-solving and kindness towards each other during this creative task. Well done Year 6 – we can’t wait to see the pots when they have been painted and decorated!

Tuesday 21st January 2020 – Year 5/6 Rugby workshop

Filed under: PE,School Trips & Visits,Year 5,Year 6 @ 9:27 am

Yesterday, 7 children across years 5 and 6 attended a rugby workshop run by Boundary Oak School. The workshop focused on the skills used in full contact rugby, culminating in some small sided games. The children were split into ability groups so that those who were already confident and played full contact rugby could begin with practising tackles on one another, whilst those who hadn’t any experience of this, could begin using the tackle bags.

It was a great afternoon – I was so impressed with the children’s level of skill, athleticism and discipline and as always, they represented our school brilliantly. Well done to Mylo, Ethan, Jazmine, Delilah, Issy, Ben and Jamie.

Friday 17th January 2020 – Earth and Space in Year 5

Filed under: Science,Year 5 @ 9:07 am

This week, Year 5 started to look more closely at the planets of our solar system and how night and day are created. Using play dough, they created each planet of our solar system and were surprised at the different sizes of each planet. After discussing how night and day occurs through the use of torches, globes and videos, Year 5 then created sundials to see how the sun ‘moves’ throughout the day. Unfortunately, the rain has meant we haven’t been able to use these yet… but we remain hopeful!
