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!
Virtual Middle School Day 1
26.6.17 – Virtual Middle School kicked off today, giving the children the chance to experience their first day at secondary school. Today our lessons included English, Maths, Art and German alongside some time, as a class, rehearsing production. The children engaged really well in all the lessons and we are looking forward to day two tomorrow! Here are a few pictures of the children in their art lesson looking at printing.
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. Adults and children have gone out of their comfort zones and it was a real privilege to take all of the children for such a lovely day out. Well Done Year 6!
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. We made the most of the sunshine and had a game of rounders to celebrate after a whole class ‘DAB’. We are looking forward to Friday Funday tomorrow and to enjoying the many other activities we have to come this year. Well Done 6CI – you are incredible!!
Topic Launch Day
21.4.17 – The children have had a fantastic day today learning all about The Romans. The children designed shields, took part in a roman army boot camp and solved some tricky problems involving roman numerals. We have finished the day with some child initiated learning. Take a look at some of the photos of the children taking part in the boot camp.
21.3.17 – On Tuesday afternoon, Year 5 and 6 children were invited to take part in some cycle time trials with Olympic medalist Phil Bateman. The children all competed in the right manner, giving 100% effort and commitment as well as showing excellent sportsmanship. Here are a few shots from the afternoon…
10.3.17 – After sorting out our equipment and packing up for the journey home, we called in at Skipton Castle and were given a tour of the castle and grounds. It has been a wonderful experience for all of the children and staff involved and they are all very proud of themselves and each other. Well done Year 6 – it has been a pleasure to spend our week with you!
9.3.17 – We have had a superb final day of activities with all children pushing themselves, working together and enjoying the sunshine, finishing with movie night. The children continue to make each other and all the adults proud and are heading up to bed for their well deserved final nights sleep.
Day 3 – Disco!
8.3.17 – Another fabulous day packed with activities! Fears have been conquered and the children have continued to do us proud. We finished the day with a disco; it was great to see all of the children continuing to enjoy themselves and having fun!
7.3.17 – Caving, Orienteering, Tree climbing, Photo trails and Problem solving sum up an excellent second day. Fantastic, supportive attitudes from all the children and very proud adults. Here are just some of the photos from today…!

Arrived safely, kit issued, lunch eaten, sun shining, beds being made as we type! Adults and children all excited for the show cave this afternoon 🙂
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.
25.1.17 – We have been looking at microorganisms in science. The children learnt about bacteria, fungi and virus’s and used play doh to recreate them.
