Reception – SMSC

This week, the Reception children have had a special visitor who came and delivered an African dance workshop. The children had the opportunity to experience and take part in the African dance. This has enhanced their understanding of African culture.  Everyone has a fabulous time!

Year 3 – Art SMSC

This week Year 3 took part in an African dance session which was so much fun. We learnt lots of dance moves! We also experimented and practised using different types of brush strokes in Art. Our favourite was pointillism. #Art #AfricanDance #Dimensions

We have had a lovely but busy week in Year 5. We have been designing and putting together our own props for our upcoming Musical next term.
Any guesses what it will be about?

This week, Year 2 took part in an African dance workshop. They enjoyed learning about rhythm, key movements and performing a simple African dance routine. The teachers joined in too!

Year 4’ s Lightning Speed topic is coming to an end but before we finish we have researched the life of Joannes Gutenberg and here is what we found out:

At the beginning of the 1400’s there were an estimated 1000 or so books in the West, however by the end of the 1400’s there were an estimated 100,000 books to be found in the West. Why? Because of an inventor and craftsman named Johannes Gutenberg. Johannes introduced letterpress printing to Europe with his movable type printing press. Though movable type was already in use in East Asia, Gutenberg invented the printing press, which later spread across the world. His work led to an information revolution and the unprecedented mass-spread of literature throughout Europe.

It used to take 3 years to hand copy a Bible in Latin before the letter press, however with Gutenberg’s invention they could print 180 copies in that time.  One of Gutenberg’s Bibles is now worth a staggering £30 million – just think how many books you could buy with that!

Not only did we research, we had a go at printing ourselves

. Maybe we have the next printing specialist.

Year 5 – Art

Year 5 have been busy painting planets for the backdrop of their upcoming “Mission Control”  space performance. We can’t wait to see it all in action!

Nursery: Listening & Sounds

In Nursery we have been trying to identify different sounds. Today, we all put on a pair of giant listening ears and went on a sound walk. We heard big gusts of wind, birds singing in the trees, lots of different vehicles and the construction workers nearby.


Rowan: Week Commencing 16th January

In history we learned about the significance of the paperclip during WW2 and its links to Norwegian students who wore them as a symbol of resistance in the fight against Anti-semitism. Inspired by this we created our own wire sculptures using garden wire. It was very fiddly but we had lots of fun! @DimensionsCC #Year 6

Rowan: Week Commencing 9th January

Year 6 had a visit from Bradford’s Road Safety Team this morning. We learned how to stay safe on the roads, especially with their transition to secondary school coming up. We also learned about the app ‘what3words’ and the emergency number 112 that you can use to help first responders locate you if you are unsure where you are. #Year6 #RoadSafety #what3words #112

Rowan: Week Commencing 3rd January

We have had lots of fun using Blooket to help us with our research on Nelson Mandela. The quizzes have really helped us remember key facts about his life ready for our biography writing. Thanks @ICT_MrP for the recommendation. Our favourite game is Crypto Hack!

Rowan: Week Commencing 12th December

We explored the outdoors this week and made sketches of living things to help us with our classification unit in Science. We made sketches and made field notes like Charles Darwin. We made observations about how we thought different seeds were dispersed when some got stuck to our clothes #DimensionCC #Year6


Rowan: Week Commencing 5th December

We have had lots of fun in Rowan class this week making our own talking GIFs using the Chatterpix kids app. We made animals that explained how they are adapted to live in extreme environments and are looking forward to trying to include them in short video clips next week #DimensionsCC @ICT_MrP
