AMELIA, KAIDEN AND MACIE'S AMAZING BLOG!

 

Herd farm residential

 Hi everyone, welcome to our blog! Our names are Macie, Kaiden and Amelia F. We stayed in gendered rooms with bird names for rooms. Amelia stayed in Red Kites, Kaiden stayed in Sparrow Hawk and Macie slept in Little Owl. Kaiden said he was sleepwalking while Amelia snored. We shared rooms with friends which was hilarious! When it came to food, the teachers had to serve us and we thought it was amazing. We all rated it around a 7/10 which is good. We all loved the food! After food we swept, wiped and washed then we swapped duties everyday.

Amazing Activities 

For our activities we did Archery and assault course Zipwire and leap of faith .For each of the activities we were split into groups 1-3,Macie an Kaiden were in group 1 and Amelia was in group 3.The zip wire was 150 meters and 19 seconds to get down it. The zip wire was a double zip wire so you could go down it with your friends in your group. Amelia felt scared looking at it but felt excited going down it so did Macie and Kaiden felt excited looking at it and happy going down it. Unfortunately, Amelia got stuck getting out of the safety gear! When it was our turn to do Archery, we sat down and listened to the instructor we were called up in pairs and went through 'The Guide' to shoot the arrow at the target. We were able to have a few turns. Many it tricky including Macie and Amelia. Leah even shot a bullseye! Amelia felt frustrated as the arrow kept moving out of place. Macie felt scared because her arms were shaking when she pulled it back and Kaiden felt excited ,even though he thought it was boring. On the assault course we were guided to where we wore our helmets. After a struggle by some of us we were guided to the wooden course. We climbed into tunnels and we faced the wooden bridge. We had to keep it balanced for 1 minute at least. It was very funny seeing some strategies that failed. Macie and Kaiden thought it was east while Amelia thought it was hard. We had to climb to high points and squeeze in for a group photo, while doing funny poses. Even though we did it, we wish we could do it again. Kaiden said the Leap of Faith was easy and when he looked down, he thought it was scary. Macie didn't want to go on it. Amelia didn't go on it because the instructor wasn't there. 

 

Thanks for reading!

Year 5 Residential

 

โ€‹ Hey Everyone! This is Isla and Ethan. In this blog we are going to share out our thoughts on the brilliant 2-night residential Herd Farm.  We had made our way down to Herd Farm after school [3'o'clock].To get there it was roughly about 45 minutes to get there since we took the long way there. When we got there, Dec gave us a tour around the building and we were shown our rooms. At dinner time, the teachers -that came- prepared to serve the food to us. Ethan said ,"The food was amazing and so delicious ."After dinner ,we had to do chores such as ,sweeping, up, drying and wiping down tables. After that, we went down to our bedrooms to make our beds which was really fun. We did a very tiring, long night walk that was 2 hours long! We even went past some Emmerdale houses! Some children were totally amazed! Did you know our rooms were named after birds?[Isla's were, Little Owls and Ethan's was the Eagle]. After we finished our tiring night walk, we unpacked our bags and suitcases in our rooms. We had rooms with bunk beds in. The rooms up to 2,4,8 and 10 bunk beds and we shared with our friends .We could go up to the games room after we had done everything we needed to do in our rooms. The game room had a pool table, Tv, table of football, connect 4 and even a piano Outside of the building there was a football net and also a game of chesโ€‹s.                โ€‹                                                                                                                                                    โ€‹Activities we did

 

                                    โ€‹Zipwire

 โ€‹On the zipwire, you had to go down in a pair which was fun [we were connected to lots of safety clips]. The zipwire was actually really safe because you had to walk down a long hill until you couldn't reach the floor. Interestingly, the zipwire travelled at 27 miles per hour and it is also 150m long. It took 19 seconds to get down. Isla said ," It was really fun but it also made me forget my fear. Fun fact, group 1 begged Mrs Hayling's to go on the zipwire!!

 

                                  Leap of Faith

  On the leap of Faith, we had to climb up a tall wooden pole. After that, once you reached the top you had to stand on the edge. When we were about to jump, the group had to do a count down from 3. We had to jump from a โ€‹horizontal metal bar. Mrs Haylings had  a go and she felt scared at first but in the end she was glad that she did it.

 

 

                       

                                                         โ€‹Archery

In archery, there were different bows to shoot with which were left or right [if you were left eyed, you had to have the let bow, and if you had the right eye you had the right bow]. Our teacher for archery was called Greg. "It was really fun," said Ethan.

 

 

                                                    

 

                                              Obstacle Course

.                

                                   

               โ€‹On the Obstacle Course, we had to listen to the instructions first. After that, we made our way down the bridge that you had to hold it in the middle for 20 seconds. We then made our way down to a very difficult course. "It was really hard," said Isla. Our teacher the same teacher as Archery[Gregg]. We had to do some team building on some activities but we both think it was cool. That was the last thing we did. We went back to our rooms and packed to leave. We cleaned the whole building up so then it looked clean for the next people. Then after that, we got all our bags and put them on the couch. We all said goodbye and thank you. Thanks for reading our amazing adventure at Herd Farm.

TAVIEN AND FINNLAY'S AWESOME RESIDENTIAL BLOG!!

 

This is Tavian and Finnlay with our blog about our fantastic residential. As soon as school ended ,we got ready to get on the coach and the journey took about 20 mins. When we arrived, we were greeted by Dec who gave us a tour of the building. After our tour around the building, we went to our rooms and made our beds and the room names were all species of birds. We went to the dining room one we were finished. We were served by the teachers which we found funny[Ha Ha]. Later we finished eating and had to do chores [we thought they were hard].As we were eating food it was tasting delicious. Then we played in the amazing games room which had a football table, sofas, pool, library, piano and connect 4. We also did a night walk to see where they film Emmerdale farm. 

 

 

The next day, we woke up we go dressed and went for breakfast. We had toast and cereal for breakfast. Before we started the activities, we went to the game room. the activities we included: The Leap of Faith,  Double Zipline and Archery and Assault course.  The zip wire was 150m long and travelled at 27mph going down. The Leap of Faith is where you climbed up a pole that was very shaky. You needed to catch a metal bar. We had around 5-10 mins in the game room. Later we had a very tasty lunch we attended the assault course to complete this you had to have skill.   Although it was everybody for themselves it took a lot of them team work. The next day we got packed ready ate breakfast and did  Zipline or Assault course Archery had lunch and went home

Here are some more of our blogs written by class 12! We hope you enjoy them ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Bikeability was cool we started by riding our bikes on the playground. After

playtime, we went onto the road which was really scary. We learned how to get on

and off and how to do a u-turn and I am really good at them. On the second day,

rode to the church near our school but a car nearly knocked me off.I really enjoyed

Bikeability and would like to do it again.

Leighton and Harry blog ๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒป

We didn't go to the residential so we stayed at school and did achlities, First we did

art, I drew an owl and Harry did a tiger. We also made colourful Rangoli patterns

(they are from India). After break we made candle holders which were made out of

salt dough. To finish the day we watched a wonderful movie called Jungle

Book. Day two was just as much fun as day one because we went to visit the

garden to water the plants. After we watered the plants, Mrs Dunderdale let us paint

the rocks in the garden. We found it difficult to mix the colours. Leighton painted

the sun and Harry painted a lady bird, we both found it hard but it was lots of fun.

Our hands were covered in paint and we had to wash them in freezing cold water!

After we finished the garden we went back to the classroom, and we painted the

candle holder. At the end of the day we played heads down thumbs up and we got

to take the candle holders home and also our rocks.

Lucas’ Bikeability blog ๐Ÿšด‍โ™€๏ธ
 

Hello it's Lucas and I'm writing my blog about Bikeabillty _Me and Charlie were not in the

same group so we had a different instructor. My instructor was called Demitri and he was

funny. We took our bikes on the main Road. After a while we snaked in and out of cones

- on our bikes and then we got into a circle. My group were learning how to signal left and

right in traffic. At the end we all went on a bike ride. In class we all received a certificate

and a badge. Mine was level 2. I'm really proud of myself for this. Bikeabillty was great

fun.

CHECK OUT OUR BLOGS!!!

 

Class 12 have been very busy writing blogs about what we have been up to so far this term!  I think you will agree we have been very busy with our Bikeability training and the amazing Herd Farm residential.

 

Below are a few of the blogs we have written so far and we will have more uploaded next week along with lots and lots of amazing photos from the residential!

 

Happy reading!

 

 

Y5 Herd Farm

Introduction

 Hello everyone! We are Konstantinos and Freddie and we have just come back from the best residential ever(maybe because it was our only one so far!) Excitedly, we jumped into the couch, and after 40 minutes we arrived. We were given a tour of Herd Farms by a guy named Dec ,which is when we found out that we were doing chores, and then, after all that had to make our beds. We were told that we could get sent home if we were not sensible. An anonymous child said,

"Why do we have to do chores?", and this is where we began our stay.

Main Paragraph

 We ate tea at 5, who was served by none other than our teachers, at the hand crafted, wooden tables. We doubted the food, mainly because it was at the farm, but we couldn't have been more wrong. The food was delicious! Konstantinos had to wash up and could barely put his hands in the water without burning himself and his hands. Finally, we did our 2-hour night-walk through the country-side where we visited the place where the film Emmerdale! Some people were really excited and cheered but others booed. Our opinions were to not get caught up in that mess. The very next day, we did an activity called Zipline with 2 seats and it was incredible! Unfortunately, we had to climb up a massive hill, despite only having 20 seconds of fun. After dinner, we could play in the games room, that included table football, pool, reading and TV for only about an hour. When we finished our "relax time" we did an assault course, which is basically an obstacle course, but it was easy and boring. The Leap of Faith was thrilling because you climbed a high beam and jumped to grab a hanging metal pole. Even our teachers did it!

Ending

 Overall, it was amazing. From the food to the activities, it was perfect in every way. We would go again if we could.

Herd Farm residential

        

        Hello everyone, this is Amelia P and Gracie. Today we are writing to tell you all about our fantastic 3 day residential to Herd Farm. When we eventually got there, we all had to make our own beds ! Some of us took longer than others . We all stayed in different rooms ,that were all named after birds of prey (Common Buzzard and Red Kite ). At lunch time, the teachers served our food which we found amusing ,and we all had to do chores each (the washing up ,drying ,putting away and sweeping the floors ,cleaning the tables ). Upstairs there was barn which was an amazing game room and we only went up here in our free time . There was a piano, a library, a pool table, table football, and lots of fun games. Outside there were football nets so we could play football .We enjoyed going up there! We even did a talent show, which we all contributed to- it was brilliant- Mikey played the piano and Amelia and some other girls did a dance with lots of kicks and flicks.

Activities

       

         During the 3 days we stayed at Herd Farm, we did 3 enjoyable activities, which are the zipwire, Leap of Faith and Archery and Assault Course. Sadly, group 3 didn't get to do the Leap of Faith. Instead, they did Crate Stacking. Mrs. Hayling went on the Leap of Faith and the zipwire. It was funny watching her go down. On the zipwire, you could go down in pairs at 27mph and it took 19 seconds to get to the bottom. The Leap of Faith was scary but fun. For the Leap of Faith, you had to climb a tall pole and when you get to the top you have to try and jump onto a metal bar. When we did Archery, it was exciting but unfortunately it hurts your arms after. 

Night Walk

 

            On the first night, we went on a calming night walk to where Emmerdale is filmed. We saw a light on a tree where they film. Under a tree, we all sat down and sang some songs. Cows were following us on the way back to Herd Farm ! We thought it was hilarious .

Year 5 residential

 

Hi this is Logan and Harrison's blog all about our residential at Herd Farm. We stayed in rooms named after birds of prey and ours was called Sparrow Hawk. We stayed in rooms with our friends that was so much fun but, on a night, we kept the teachers awake messing about. The teachers served us at dinner and tea time which we found hilarious. We had chores to do chores to do and we found it very boring but they had to be done. We had to lay the table, clear, sweep, wash up and put away everyone took it in turns doing them. There was a games room which included a pool table, table football, piano, games and a library we think it was one of the best parts. In addition, we had a talent show, chess and football nets.

 

Activities

There was a double zip wire and you can go down with a friend. We were held up with wires connected to a clip. Can you believe it goes 27mph? It was amazing and our stomach was in our mouth.

 

Leap of Faith

 

The leap of faith was scary but amazing as you had to climb up a wobbly pole and stand on a platform. As soon as you got to the top we felt a rush of adrenaline. Everybody cheered each other on which made us push ourselves to conquer our fear. We felt proud and happy after the activity. We made Mrs Halings go on the leap of faith and we all thought it was hilarious.

 

Assault Course

 

We all started going through a tunnel we got claustrophobic. As it was a very sunny day, we were all sweating. We all figured out we had to use teamwork to get through the course. The bridge included allot of teamwork.  

 

Archery

 

To get started using the bows and arrows we had to see if we were left or right eye dominant. We all did very good and we all enjoyed it most of group one was right eye dominant. We would definitely recommend going there and we would go there again. Hope you enjoyed reading our blog. 

The stay at Herd farm Y5

This amazing Blog has being written by Lilly and Mikey hope you like it. Enjoy!

 

  The arrival

   After 45 minutes ( or so) we arrived at the Farm. We were very surprised at how it looked.

Lilly thought it would be a tall fancy building. Mikey on the other hand thought that there would be 2 massive huts one for the boys and one for the girls. We were both quite far away from wat it really looked like. When we jumped off the coach, we collected our luggage from underneath-we're pretty sure that the driver broke something in some unlucky persons case as he carelessly chucked them out! Lilly liked dinner as it was all freshly made and Mikey liked it because he could sit with all of hisโ€‹ friends. We all loved the fact that the teachers served us the food(everyone found it hilarious but don't tell them. Most people had to do chores like washing up, sweeping and more we weren't very used to this. No Surprise there! 

 

โ€‹In The Rooms

 

  Once We had put all our luggage into the hallway we were placed into our rooms (By our lovely teacher Mrs. Haylings).Some rooms were huge and some were small. Each of the rooms were named after different birds of prey-Mikey's room was named Eagle and Lilly's was named Red Kite. Mikey's was small but Lilly's was big . Before dinner everyone had to make their beds. Some people found it easy and some hard we โ€‹definitely weren't used to this. One of  the things we didn't like was that we couldn't have sweets at night time-we all knew that this was for safety -but even though we were able to have them in the day (we were still annoyed!).  Also we were dreading it because we thought that Miss Riley would eat them all!!!

 

The activities 

 

โ€‹  The first activity everyone did was the Night Walk. We all had a long 2 hour walk in the sun set -we both  loved the night walk. We walked to the place where they film Emmerdale. Another activity we did was the Leap of Faith where we had to climb up a wobbly beam and jump off and catch a bar. Mikey liked the Leap of Faith but it was scary Lilly and her group did a different activity called the crate stack. She said that it was just as fun. We also did an Assault course which was hard. The assault cause required a lot of teamwork and some required a lot of thinking. The zipline was really fun and we both really liked it. Mikey went down with Mrs. Haylings. The last activity was Archery. Lilly found it quite fun and so did Mikey. Mikey got a bullseye and he did it with an adult bow!. And someone from Lilly's group also got one. 

 

Overall we both loved it and would recommend it to anyone!!!

 

KAYA AND YING'S BIKEABILITY BLOG!

 

Hi everyone! Our names are Kaya and Ying . We are here to tell you about year 5's Bikeability Our instructors were Graham Joe Al and Greg. Can you believe Graham slept in on the 2nd day and left us all waiting! On our first day we did the ABCs check (air, brakes, control, seat and steer)on our bike. It was quite interesting because we had never heard of it before.  We could have brought our own bikes but we decided not to because we don't have a bike . We were split into two groups and Ying is in group 1 with Graham and Kaya went with Demitri. Ying learned how to ride a bike and now she is confident that she is proud of herself. Kaya learned how to change her gear in different situations. On the second day (last day),Ying switched gears to 4 and it went faster than usual.  She really liked it she also road one mile without falling off. Kaya went on the road to learn safety it was really fun and enjoyable .Kaya's instructor (Demetri) made her go up a big hill, which was like a workout. After that we got to go down a hill but before I went down my brakes stopped working . I was worried but my brakes stop work instructor fix it and didn't happen again. Despite, the fact my brake stopped working it was very fun and would recommend.

JESSICA'S BIKEABILITY BLOG!

 

Bikeability was fun, we started by riding our bikes in the playground. After playtime we went onto the main road which was really scary. We learnt how to get on and get off properly and how to drive in a circle. My instructor taught me to do a U-turn and now I'm really good at them.  On the second day, I felt a lot more confident on the roads. Later that day, We did 3 U-turns one after the other which I enjoyed.

CHARLIE'S BIKEABILITY BLOG!

 

Hello it's Charlie here and I am writing this blog about bikeability. Me and Lucas had different instructors . My instructor was Demitri and he was funny. Later on, we took our bikes on the main roads (it was fun). After a while, we did snaking in and out of cones on our bikes then we got into a circle my group were learning how to ride a bike on safely on the main roads and how to signal left and right in traffic. At the end we all went on a bike ride. In class, we all received a certificate and mine was a level 2. I am proud of myself for this. I would definitely recommend Bikeability to next years Y5!

All about Bike Ability

 

AVA & LAYLA BIKEABILITY BLOG!

 

  Hi guys it's Ava and Layla. This blog is all about our amazing experience of Bike Ability. On day 1 we learnt what ABCSS meant (air, brakes, control, steer and seat)

 

Our instructors were called graham ,who was late for day 2,and Al. Ava learnt how to ride her bike in an hour ! Now she can fully ride her bike .

 

 

This boosted our confidence. First we learnt how to balance on the bike . Then we put one foot on the pedal and pushed with the other . This was a very useful tecnique. 

 

 

Eventually we could do full laps round the play ground. we would highly recommend.

We have had a fantastic time today in class 12 celebrating all things book related for World Book Day 2022.  So many children in the class decided to come dressed as a book character (even Mrs Haylings dressed up!). Our amazing outfits are below for you to see.

 

We continued our learning about World War Two and in particular evacuation through the book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.  The children in the book were all evacuees during WW2 and we used this to inspire us before our trip next week to Lotherton Hall.  Today we made our own evacuee labels with our WW2 names and created our own gas mask boxes to take with us on the trip.  We completed evacuation word searches, discussed the contents of an evacuees suitcase and watched video clips of people speaking who had been evacuated themselves as children.  We finished the day by watching a few episodes of The Chronicles of Narnia.  

Evacuation has been a key theme of the books we have already studied this term including Goodnight Mr Tom and Carrie’s War.

World War Two Wireless Broadcast

We have been working in groups to find out how any why WW2 started and how people in the United Kingdom reacted to the news. We used various secondary sources to find quotes from real people living and experiencing the outbreak of war.

We also researched how Neville Chamberlain and Winston Churchill reacted to the invasion of Poland.

WW2 The Home Front Day

Our new TSU topic for the Spring term is WW2.  We started the topic with our pre launch lesson where we looked at the time periods we have already studied (this helped us to place WW2 on a timeline).  We briefly looked at the causes of WW1 which in turn led to the start of WW2.  In our launch lesson we then collaborated as a class to formulate our 10 investigation questions that we are going to research this term.  The first lesson in the topic was a Geography task where we had to look at a map of the world and identify the Allies and Axis powers and place them on our own map.  We researched the capital cities and the leaders of the countries at the time of the war.  We then investigated the main UK cities that were targeted in the Blitz and identified these on a UK map alongside areas that children were evacuated to.  


We were also lucky enough to take part in a WW2 Home Front workshop with Matthew Bellwood where we looked at evacuation, the role of people who were still in Britain at the time of the war as well as rationing and propaganda.

As part of No Pens Wednesday class, 12 challenged themselves in Maths.  They played area/perimeter dominoes, tested each other's mental maths and tried to decode symbols.  They had lots of fun and used all the mathematical language that they had been learning all term.

19th November

 

In class 12 we raised money for this year's Children in Need by holding a colouring competition and a class 12 Bake Off.

The Bake Off winners were:  Konstantinos, Ava and Jessica!  Well done!

We couldn't decide who to choose for our colouring competition winner as everyone who entered put so much time and effort into their pictures.  Everyone won a prize for their efforts.  We finished our day with a lovely bun sale and enjoyed the delicious cakes.

We all made an effort to dress up and raised lots of money for charity ๐Ÿ™‚ 
 

 

On Thursday last week, Y5 went to Leeds Grand Theatre to watch the Northern Ballet performance of Merlin.  We were amazed by the talent of the dancers and how brilliant the set and special effects were!  On Friday in our weekly session with the Northern Ballet, we used what we had seen to inspire our dancing.  We had to create our own version of the battle scene from Merlin and we are sure you will agree that our performances were fantastic.

We have had a very busy week in Y5.  On Tuesday we had the chance to work with Sam and bring our Victorian tile designs to life.  We are now waiting for Sam to fire them in his kiln and then they can be glazed.  We can't wait to see our final results!

 

We had another successful session with Keisha and the Northern ballet on Friday.  We looked at the story of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and characterisation.  We will then use this to inform our performance next week.

This week we also ran our school council elections.  The children really gave it their all in their impassioned speeches.  The eventual winners for each class were Mikey and Lilly.

 

Congratulations to all the new school council reps 

1st October

 

Y5 have had a very busy week with a visit from Matthew Bellwood and also our first session with Northern Ballet as part of the RISE project. 

With Matthew, both classes had the opportunity to learn about the leisure activities the Victorians used to take part in.  We learned about how trips to the theatre, circus and events such as boxing and wrestling matches were all part of the Victorian lifestyle (for those who could afford to go). We watched a short video clip that was filmed in Roundhay Park which actually turned out to be the first-ever piece of recorded film! We also heard a few Victorian ghost tales and sang a traditional Victorian Christmas song. 

During our ballet session, we talked about our feelings and what Mental Health means to us. Using a feelings thermometer we gave ourselves a rating before the session and after the session had finished. Keisha, who is our ballet teacher, taught us a few basic ballet positions to try and we all have 100% effort which was fantastic for our teachers to see! We then had the opportunity to act out the part of the Beast from the Northern Ballet production of Beauty and the Beast. A very successful first ballet session. We can’t wait for next week!

17th September

Welcome back, everyone!  The children in both classes have made a superb start back to the school year.  They have come back eager to learn and full of enthusiasm ๐Ÿ™‚

We have started work on our Science topic Forces and have been investigating pull forces.  We looked at Newton meters and explored how to use them to accurately measure a force.  We are looking forward to learning more in this topic this half term.

We have also begun to read our class book Oliver Twist.  We are writing a section of the book as a play script and then will be re-writing a section of the story later in the term.  This book links to our new TSU topic: The Victorians.

Well done to our amazing certificate winners from the past 2 weeks.  Mrs Haylings and Mrs Sturman are so proud of you all for how hard you have been working this term.  Keep it up!
