learning log homework

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Year 5 class pet

The school council have been investigating the possibility of each class getting a pet. Both Kenya and Jamaica have decided that they would like to get a terrapin.

However, both Mrs. Kilner and Mrs. Siddall (and the children in these classes) know very little about these animals.

We are asking the children to research about our possible class pet.

We would like to know:

Are they a good pets for children?

Life – how long do they live? How much do they grow?

Habitat - Where do they live? Hot or cold conditions? Can they live in the classroom?

Diet - What do they eat? How often?

Care - How do they need to care for terrapins?

What to do to keep the terrapin healthy and happy.

Do and don’ts about having a terrapin.

Any other interesting information.

 

How you present this information is up to you:

A non-chronological report, a PowerPoint, a leaflet, a fact sheet, a Word document or perhaps be a Creative Cosmos think of your own idea. Add photos and make it as informative as you can. You may wish to send it to the class teacher via email. Please send to admin@drighlingtonprimary.org.uk

The Civil War comes to Drighlington (again!)

kenya on: Kenya Blog

On Wednesday, year 5 had a very exciting visitor to teach us about an important historical event that occurred 375 years ago - Colonel Granville Thomas - who was a Parliamentary supporter of Thomas Fairfax. He transported us back in time to discover lots of interesting facts about the Civil War, including the Battle of Adwalton, weapons, clothes and food (including tasting)

The highlight of the day was when we went outside to see a musket been fired, followed by the falconette. 

BANG!!! - Watch a video of the falconette

We all had great fun as well as learning lots too.

skipathon a great success

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Today, the children in Kenya class had great fun at the skipathon. They took part in activities to raise money for the British Heart Foundation whilst making their hearts work too. Let's hope they raise lots of money. 

They had to skip individually with one rope and also skip in pairs. 

Well done to Sonny and Jobe for 195 skips in 1 minute and Camron for an outstanding 220 skips. 

Unfortunately, they still have a long way to achieve the skipping record of 332 skips performed in one minute!

When using a long skipping rope as individual the best was Adam. 

He also worked well with Evan when they had 28 skips with a partner.

outstanding orienteering

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Today, Kenya class had a chance to work with Mr. Milnes, PE teacher from Woodkirk,  to develop their orienteering skills. Firstly, we learnt that orienteering was finding our way about but that it involved team work, communication and trying to solve problems. 

Today we worked on giving and receiving instructions in a fun and enjoyable way. In pairs, one of us had to wear a blindfold whilst the other directed us around obstacles in the hall, without touching. We had to make sure that instructions were clear and we learnt how to use a clock face or compass points to help our partners. Finally, our challenge was to direct our partner without talking, but we found lots of innovative ideas.

I am sure you will agree that the children made us proud. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

If you were not lucky enough to be bale to attend, then don't forget that one of the songs that we sang is available on the creative corner of the website for you to listen to - it gives me goose-bumps!

learning log homework

kenya on: Kenya Blog

After half term, we will be studying the English Civil War. Your task is to research all you can about the English Civil War.

This might be local information, such as about Drighlington or be more nationwide to include other areas.

The choice of how you present your work is entirely yours – be a creative cosmos; have a growth mindset; be adventurous! You can write your research findings in the form of a report, an information leaflet, a newspaper article, a comic strip, a poem (including an acrostic), a book or even as a game or a quiz! You could make some artefacts. You can use ICT – PowerPoint, Publisher or Word.

Think about:

  • When it happened?
  • Who was involved?
  • Why the Civil War happened.

You have 2 weeks to complete this homework, so make sure that it is of good quality. It needs to be presented to a high standard as some work will be displayed.

Red Nose Day

kenya on: Kenya Blog

There was great fun on Friday for Red Nose Day 2017. The children in Kenya class enjoyed  dressing up in red, buying buns, bobbing for red noses (apples!), beat the goalkeeper and guess the name of the baby/child from the staff photographs. Matilda Sands particularly enjoyed guessing the number of sweets in the jar as she won! In the afternoon, Mrs. Howe led a great talent show for the children to help share the laughter.

Thank you to all parents for their donations of buns and money to make the day so successful.

Readathon update

kenya on: Kenya Blog

The school has now set up a competition - children having fun reading in different places. A letter has gone out asking for photos of children reading in fun places - at school, upside down, in bed or even on the toilet! Come into school to see the results. 

As a school we are taking part in Readathon. The children will be sponsored to read. They will read as much as they can. This can include books, newspapers, comics, audio books, football programmes or any other reading material. They must read as much as they can in the next few weeks, including the Easter holidays. In class we have made a chart to show who is reading the most and in school we are looking at the class who altogether have read the most books. Some children have already read 25+ books. 

 

For more information you can watch this link. Readathon.

So, what are you waiting for? Get reading!

amazing investigators

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Last week saw the children in Kenya class becoming science superstars. 

Unfortunately, a supermarket had an accident and the van had crashed. Some of the materials had been mixed up and we had to decide the best way to separate them - evaporation, sieving, filtering or using a magnet. First, we predicted the best method. Next, we carried out experiments to test our ideas.

Could you think which we would use to separate sand and paper clips; flour and raisins; salt and water and sand and water?

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Thank you to all the parents who have signed up for parents evening on Monday or Wednesday night (or thank you for coming to see me if you couldn't make that night to make alternative arrangements)

It is great to spend time sharing your child's work and achievements and goals with you. 

There are still lots of parents who have not yet arranged a mutually convenient time. Please get in touch so you can make an appointment. 

I look forward to seeing you.

World Book Day

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Today in Kenya we saw some very strange characters - 2 Alice in Wonderlands, Roland, Newt Scarmander (from Fantastic Beasts) and a creeper from Minecraft. The class and whole school were certainly very colourful. 

World Book Day is a celebration! It's a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it's a celebration of reading. In fact, it's the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.

This year is about making reading fun and reading in different places - at school, upside down, in bed or even on the toilet! 

As a school we are taking part in Readathon. The children will be sponsored to read books of their choice. They brought sponsor forms home yesterday. Money raised will go to help children reading in hospital. They will read as many books as they can in the next weeks, including the Easter holidays. For more information you can watch this link. Readathon.

The book sale was a huge success and the children left school with lots of books that they can start to read for their readathon. 

So, what are you waiting for? Get reading!

Are Kenya losing their marbles?

Science - dissolving

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Yesterday, the children in Kenya class were investigators, finding out which materials dissolved in water. 

We had lots of fun whilst also learning. We discovered that soluble means when a material dissolves in a liquid, whereas insoluble is when a material does not. Why not ask your child about some of the materials and whether they were soluble or not? 

We have left the solutions on the windowsill over half term to see what happens to them. 

I hope you have a great holiday. I look forward to seeing you on the Monday.

homework

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Each week, homework is given out to help children develop their understanding and help consolidate learning in class. Maths homework is handed out on a Tuesday, to be returned on a Friday. SPAG homework is handed out on a Friday to be returned on a Tuesday. We do try to make this homework fun and last week we had a game to help us to use great sentence openers. Thanks for all the help of those children that completed this. We really do appreciate the parent's help in ensuring that homework is completed and in on time. This week, there were some pieces of really high quality and like Pobble, I have included a photo of their work. Well done to Grace Peat, Leia Goldthorpe and Callum Sheldon for their excellent pieces. 

Thank you for all the parents for ensuring that homework is completed on time. Please pop in and see us if you need to discuss homework or need clarification on what is expected. Don't struggle at home. We are always happy to help. Look forward to seeing next week's homework from all children in Kenya in on time.

Pobble passwords

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Yesterday, children who had signed up for Pobble were given a password so that they too could add their comments to work on Pobble. 

Last week more children's work was uploaded to the Pobble site. The children received a certificate and you can view their work at www.Pobble.com

Work uploaded to Pobble is also placed on the new Pobble display in class. Why not take a look? 

There are a few parents who have still not signed up for Pobble and this means that although they can see the fantastic work, they cannot have their child's work published or leave comments. Please send in your slip and this can be quickly sorted if you haven't.

Pobble launch

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Last week saw the launch of Pobble, a great way to inspire young writers. It is the global classroom wall: a place to celebrate children's writing, and a terrific teaching resource. For more information on Pobble see Mrs. Jackson's blog on this wonderful resource. 

The children in year 6 worked with a teacher from Pobble initially. Following this, children attended an informative assembly. Finally, staff were trained on how to set up accounts and upload children's work. 

This week in Kenya 5 pieces were uploaded to show our wonderful work on non-chronological reports. Congratulations to these children: Megan Williams, Callum Sheldon, Evie- Grace Quinn, Grace Peat and Clark Blockley.

We are aiming to upload to 5 pieces of work per week. The children will bring home a certificate. You can log onto the site and view children's writing, giving comments and likes. So far we have 65 views, 11 comments and 3 likes. Thanks for all parents for their responses. I wonder who will be on next week?

However, we cannot publish your child's work if you have not given permission. If you have not already set up an account for your child, send in your details and then your child's work can be published for the world world to see.

Einstein's Apprentices

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Last Wednesday two members of Kenya class, our 2 Einsteins, Callum Sheldon and Megan Williams, had the opportunity to attend Gildersome Primary School, accompanied by Miss Slattery, to participate in Einstein’s Apprentices. This is a special science project for the year 5 children where they will be attending different schools through the year to develop their scientific knowledge and understanding.

This session the children came back with gooey slime. They had lots of fun whilst still learning.

Well done to the two children who attended. Once again, they were ambassadors for Drighlington Primary School.

Times table rock stars

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Today, children in Kenya had a chance to create their own aviator when making and naming their own rock star. This was part of our new initiative to help learn times tables. Learning time stables is vital to helping your child is all of their maths - area, fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio. It is important that children have a quick recall and can relate times tables to division. The children can challenge themselves as well as playing against children in their own class as well as other children to earn virtual money which can be exchanged for new items such as sunglasses, new backgrounds or clothes. The children who practice most may get the opportunity to be top of the school leader board and if all the children from Drighlington Primary School play, the whole school could be top of the school leader board. 

Help support your child to learn their times table in a fun and enjoyable way. 

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

Out of This World!

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Yesterday, Kenya had the amazing opportunity to be transported to space to discover the wonders of space when we had a planetarium.

Waiting excitedly outside the children predicted what they thought it would be like.

Entering the giant dome, they were able through the guidance of the experienced Mr. Lake be able to discover more about the marvels of space including the mysterious moon, the sun, Earth and planets. Also, they had chance to find constellations in the sky and hear of the stories that accompanied them.

It was a great experience for all, with lots to learn and find out in a fun yet educational way.

Full moon, half moon, total eclipse

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Today we have had a super science lesson which helped us learn about in a fun, exciting way about the phases of the moon.

Based on the advertisement for Jaffa Cakes (which many of you may remember), we used Jaffa Cakes or Oreos to create our own moon phases. It was great fun (and we got to eat them too!)

Christmas concert

kenya on: Kenya Blog

This week we have been very busy practicing our Christmas songs in preparation for our Christmas concert.

We are so lucky that the children from Drighlington Primary have the opportunity to perform their Christmas Carol Concert at Morley Town Hall on the evening of Thursday 15th December.

The children can either wear their school uniform or Christmas themed items - Christmas jumpers, tinsel or hat.

We look forward to seeing you at this evening for this special event. There will be refreshments before the concert.

Mrs. Jackson is so keen that as many children attend as possible for this magical evening that she has offered the class with the largest percentage of children attending a special treat of a movie with popcorn. Come on Kenya – you can do it!!!

I look forward to seeing you all there.

Einstein's Apprentices

kenya on: Kenya Blog

On Wednesday 23rd November two members of Kenya class, Callum Sheldon and Megan Williams, had the opportunity to attend Birchfield Primary School, accompanied by Miss Slattery, to participate in Einstein’s Apprentices. This is a special science project for the year 5 children from Drighlington and other schools in the area, where they will be attending different schools through the year to develop their scientific knowledge and understanding.

During this first session they learnt about microbes and carried out an experiment to find out about germs spread. First, they simulated a sneeze by spraying a colour without anything to stop it. Understandably, the sneeze went a long way! Next, they stimulated a sneeze with a laminated hand in front and the sneeze only went halfway. Finally, they simulated a sneeze but used a hanky. They concluded that it is most hygienic when we sneeze to use a hanky to catch the germs.

Megan commented, “The trip was amazing. It was great fun to learn in a practical way.”

Miss Slattery added, “ I can’t wait for the next one.”

Well done to the two children who attended. They were ambassadors for Drighlington Primary School.

amazing art work

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Today in art Kenya had the opportunity to print using inks to create a seaside scene. 

First, they had to tear tissue paper to create a background. 

Next, they used a polystyrene tile to make a print. 

They were very careful as they used sharp cutting tools. 

They listened carefully to Mrs. Pearson so no one got covered in ink. 

Ande Ackroyd commented, "It was great fun. I enjoyed tearing the paper and putting the print on top."

There are lots of Creative Cosmos in Kenya class. It was great fun.

Friendship bench/bus stop challenge

kenya on: Kenya Blog

This week in assembly Miss Ainley gave the children a fabulous challenge.  Instead of SPAG homework this week, the children have been set a special learning log task to design a friendship bench / bus stop for our playground. The winning children's ideas will be used in the design of the bench / bus stop. There are lots of great ideas on the Internet. I have provided some to give you some inspiration. The children in Kenya were very enthusiastic and had some great ideas. Good luck everyone.

The Highwayman

kenya on: Kenya Blog

In class we have been learning about the narrative poem of 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes. On Friday we looked at the character of Bess, the landlord's daughter and tried to empathsise with how she might have felt through the events that happened. To aid our understanding we acted out the scene and then we froze at certain points, considering what Bess might have been thinking at those points. Why not ask your child to explain what Bess might have been feeling at these points?

Times tables in Kenya

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Learning times tables are very important for learning. They help children not only multiply but also help in other mathematical areas such as dividing. Children who know their times tables find fractions much easier to master. 

In Kenya we are keen to ensure that your child knows their times tables. This does not just mean learning them by rote and reciting them, often counting on fingers. Children need to become more competent in knowing them forwards (and backwards) and been able to give multiplication facts quickly, applying them to division. 

In class we carry out big maths which asks children multiplication facts accurately and quickly. We have also started weekly tests based on Superhero multiplication characters. In helping your child to learn their times tables we have sent home packs at their level containing fun ways to learn the times tables they on. We appreciate your help in helping your child in learning these.

I have displayed all of the work in class. Please feel free to pop in after school to see what great learning has been going on. Once again, thank you for your continued support in developing your child's learning.

The Internet - how safe are you?

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Today, Kenya had a talk from Michelle Rollinson and her colleague from West Yorkshire Police about keeping themselves safe on the Internet. They discussed Cyber bullying. They gave the following advice:

Never tell anyone your personal details including your name and age.

Never tell anyone your email address.

Don't post pictures on your webpage if it is open to anyone - they could easily be downloaded.

Keep your web pages private - check the privacy settings.

Never talk to anyone that you don't know online.

If you are suspicious, tell someone you trust immediately. 

Keep all messages if they are worrying you, don't delete them. 

They warned the children to ensure that they were careful in watching what they sent in text messages, emails and social media. Some children were shocked to learn at the age of 10 they are old enough to be arrested or charged with a crime.

They pointed out that we want children to access the Internet, but please ensure that we keep them safe.

the Olympics comes to Drighlington

kenya on: Kenya Blog

Wednesday saw the Olympics come to Drighlington as the children in Kenya had the opportunity to take part in their very own Olympic games. This included javelin, slalom, jumping and throwing activities. Luckily, we let the girls take part (as the Ancient Greeks wouldn't allow women and girls to participate!) and let them keep their P.E kits on. We all had lots of fun whilst getting fit at the same time.

Greek homework

kenya on: Kenya Blog

On Friday of this week, as discussed with some parents that attended parent's evening, instead of SPAG homework this Friday, children will be sent learning log homework. As we do not get time in which to complete all the fun activities that your child may wish to related to our topic of Ancient Greece, the learning log asks you to be as creative as you can to present your own information. This project will last over 3 weeks so we expect a high quality of homework produced. 

To help you, you may wish to look at the following websites: 

BBC education

Woodlands Junior School

Snaith Primary School

I look forward to seeing the work after the October holidays.

Greek cooking

kenya on: Kenya Blog

We have had our first cooking experience this week and we have all enjoyed making and eating a Greek salad and Tzatziki.

There were mixed responses but it was lovely to see the children trying new things. They will be bringing home the recipe so why not try some authentic Greek cooking at home?

Next week and the week after, we hope to try some Kenyan recipes.
