Virtual Middle School Day 2

27.6.17 – It has been another exciting day at Brigshaw today. Our lessons included English, Double Science, Orienteering and Maths! We have really enjoyed getting to know the layout of the school better and have had lots of fun exploring Fibonacci’s patterns and Roald Dahl’s autobiographical writing. Here are some of the pictures of the children in Science testing the effects when Calcium Chloride and Water are mixed together!

Light Water Valley

16.6.17 – What an incredible end of year treat for us all today. We have all had a super day exploring the fun, laughter and excitement that Light Water Valley has to offer.

Temple Newsam

18.5.17 – We had a wonderful day at Temple Newsam today. We were able to explore the house and develop our sketching and observation skills. The children also got to take part in a clay workshop where we used the theme of fish to create clay sculptures. We are looking forward to displaying the fish with the rest of the school’s clay work.

We did it!!

11.5.17 – What a week it’s been for Year 6 facing their end of key stage 2 SATS tests. They have made all of the adults incredibly proud at school and have tried their very best on some tricky questions this week.

Guardian Angels

1.3.17 – All of Year 6 met their child, who they are going to be a role model guardian angel for, last week. The children designed a ‘getting to know you activity’ and learnt lots about their child, who they are going to be looking out for around school. It was an amazing atmosphere in the hall and the Year 6 children were incredible at being role models to the younger members of our school.

Safer Internet Day/Stay and Learn.

7.2.17 – It was lovely to see the parents that joined us for Stay and Learn today – we hope you enjoyed the internet safety activities with the children. Year 6 were focussing on sharing things on the internet and how sometimes different people can view images/emojis and messages in different ways. We finished the day with an emoji themed presentation to teach younger children the importance of being aware of what they share.

2.2.17 – Today, to link in with our art topic and our class book (Kensuke’s Kingdom) the children had a go at using paint to express/show different moods and feelings through the form of painting. We painted the seasons and a Sakura tree. Take a look at some of the children’s work below.
