Mental Health Awareness Day!

As well as knowing how to look after our bodies, it is just as important to be able to look after our minds.

Today, the children in Byland class created a booklet all about themselves.

We discussed what mental health was and the different ways we can look after ourselves.

We then created drawings of ourselves with happy, healthy brains.

Peer Reading!

Thank you so much to Izzy, Daisy and Sophie from Rievaulx for listening to Ruby and Tymon read today.

The older children are so dedicated to helping others in the school.

They have organised this themselves. Amazing, well done!

Keeping Safe Online

Byland class proved today that they know how important it is to keep safe online.

Have a look at the rhyme they created about using search engines correctly.

I am very impressed!

Adverb Hunt!

In English, we are learning to improve our writing by using adverbs to describe verbs.

We completed an adverb hunt around the classroom, linking them to verbs and creating interesting sentences.

We now know how to effectively use adverbs in our writing.

 

Darragh created this fantastic sentence: 'I tiptoed up the old, creaky stairs silently'.

Mixing English with P.E

Byland class have had great fun in P.E. They have been building different letters using their bodies.

They had to work well in a team and communicate clearly and quickly.

Their challenge was to build the letter 'Y' in complete silence.

Have a look at their success below:

Sponsored Walk!

Today, the whole school completed a sponsored walk.

In total, Byland walked over 60 miles! Well done!

Black History Month

On Monday 30th September, we began our celebrations for Black History Month.

We created four different pieces of artwork based on Abdul Karim, who worked closely with Queen Victoria during her reign.

Abdul Karim was originally from India, but worked hard to become successful in England.

Take a look at the beautiful pieces of art Byland class have made:

Victorian Street Descriptions

This week, we have been writing some fantastic descriptions about a Victorian street setting.

The children have used adjectives, similes, metaphors, personification AND expanded noun phrases to describe their street. Wow... what a list!

I am so impressed with the work they have produced.

If you would like to read them, take a look at our display in the entrance hallway.

Drama everywhere!

 

Byland class have been learning about the various jobs children in Victorian England had to do.

Each group created a freeze frame to represent a different job.

Have a look at the children's facial expressions and body language.

Do you think they're enjoying their new employment?

Byland Class Trip - Royal Armouries

To support our learning about the Ancient Greeks, we visited the Royal Armouries where we took part in two workshops. It has been an absolutely fantastic day!

We have been doing frieze frames to retell the myth of Perseus and Medusa. We will be using these to help us to write a diary entry! Have a look!

Barvember!!

All through November, Byland have learned how to use Bar models when solving word problems. We have learned that we can use them for addition, subtraction and multiplication. Super Job!

EXPLOSION ALERT!

As part of our geography project, we learnt about volcanoes and how they are formed. We then designed our own volcano and researched some ingredients we could use to make it erupt! On Italian day, we all gathered together, prepared the materials and our volcano erupted magnificently!
