Bingley - Now and Then
Times table rockstars
All children in school have been given a login and password to access the Times table rockstars website. This is a brilliant resource that enables children to make improvements in their times tables, which ultimately will lead to improvements across general maths knowledge (times tables are the key to so so much).
If you haven't already tried, log on today and see how good you are compared to the rest of the school.
World War 1 shoebox trenches
Year 5 worked in pairs to produce some stunning WW1 trenches. Using their new found knowledge of this most interesting of historical topics, they utilised all available resources for their creations. The only instruction they were given was "It must start with a shoebox!"
World War 1 newspaper articles
The children spent 3 weeks producing some magnificent, and realistic looking, newspaper front pages from World War 1. They wrote articles about how the war started, thought of headlines, wrote poems using onomatopoeia, created fun weather reports, sourced actual footage photographs from the war and finally included era relevant adverts.
This was some of the best work produced by them and something they should be proud of!
Year 5 playing trombone to the rest of the school
Every Thursday afternoon, year 5 are taught trombone by Mr Griffiths. On the back of a few months practise, the class were able to perform a number of christmas tracks to the rest of the school. They sounded awesome! Next stop is to perform in Bradford in March for the upcoming 10 pieces event.
