History

Barnsley Music Education Hub website now has new features which we really hope will support schools. As well as a new Online Learning section that was developed last term, we have also been working hard to reduce the amount of printed paper resources that we use, therefore we have included the following documents online:

·         Pupil Practice Diary

·         Pupil Handbook (Lots of information about how lessons work)

·         New Starter Form (Pink Form)

Here is The link to these documents:

The Butterflies went to the National Coal Mining Museum England

The Butterflies loved their trip to the National Coal Mining Museum this week. We learned about the history of coal mining and even got to go ‘down t’pit!’ for a meet-the-miner underground tour. We also enjoyed our science focussed workshop about how the Davy lamp saved lives by preventing methane gas from igniting a naked flame. What an unforgettable experience!

Life in the Victorian Mine

In our class text, Candle Dark, the characters (along with poor old Drummer the pit pony) escape, following an explosion in the mine. The Year 3 Butterflies used drama freeze frames to help infer how characters were feeling at different moments in the book. We love Reading Vipers!

Years 5 and 6 Visit Eden Camp

Our Polar Bears, Eagles and Sea Lions all had a fabulous day at Eden Camp. They enjoyed the immersive experience and the opportunity to view a wide-range of historical artefacts. They looked FANTASTIC in their outfits and gained many compliments from other visitors.

Candle Dark

We are loving our class text so much that we are looking forward to reading more books by Carole Anne Carr. We have found out some facts about our class author and have even written her a letter!

A Letter from Joshua

The Butterflies had almost forgotten that they had written to Joshua, the main character in Candle Dark by Carole Anne Carr. But when Mrs Rennison came to visit with an unusual envelope for us, we guessed it must be Joshua writing back to us from the 1800s. He even enclosed the carrot he used to move Drummer through the mine and our National Coal Mining Museum trip letters. How exciting!

R for Retrieve and V for Vocabulary

The Sea Lions have begun a study on Women at War. They read an information sheet about the Women’s Land Army, and then answered a range of retrieval questions using the information they had read. Next, they read a poem addressed ‘To All Land Girls’ and used dictionaries to find the meaning of some tricky words such as ‘elegant’, ‘stalwart’, ‘slew’ and ‘feeble’. The Year 6 children are impressing Mr. Sandwith with how well they are working #Together.

The Blitz

As part of their WW2 topic, the Sea Lions are using a range of media to create Blitz-themed silhouette art. Their backgrounds are stunning.

Roman Army

Year four have been studying Romans. Mrs. Sutton was delighted with these two superb artists and their contributions to the lesson. Enjoy their superb interpretations of a Legionnaire and a Centurion.
 

Information Seekers

We have been learning about the lives and duties of Roman Centurions and Legionaries. A non-fiction, shared reading text focused our brains, for a day of historical research and creative learning!
