Viking Longships

The Vikings built fast ships for raiding and war. These ships were ‘dragon-ships‘ or ‘longships‘. 

Viking longships could sail in shallow water, so they could travel up rivers as well as across the sea. In a raid, a ship could be hauled up on to a beach. The Vikings could jump out and start fighting, and then make a quick getaway if they were chased. 

Class CG have been constructing Viking long boats from paper, straws and match sticks. They were all a fantastic success!

A Viking warrior visits Class CG!

Welayn ‘The Viking’ took our class back to the Viking period. We heard tales of the lives of the Vikings in that time. 

We dressed as Vikings and even  re-enacted a Viking battle. We all had a great time!

Chinese Cooking in Class AH

To complete our topic work on China we experienced an exciting afternoon of cooking and eating.

The children liked choosing and preparing their ingredients but most of all they enjoyed sampling the finished dishes, truly scrumptious! 

 

White rose competition

Blooming marvellous!

These are our competition entries for the Bloomin’ Yorkshire Competition to help raise awareness for Kidney dialysis. Years 3, 4, and 5 entered and one entry from each class was chosen. The winner could win an I-Pad and money for the school!!

Thank you everyone for your marvellous entries and let’s keep our fingers crossed for the competition.

This was made by a pupil from Class EF. She  used two pieces of card with the white rose logo on. It was coloured using felt tip colours and laminated to make it water proof. They were then attached together using a split pin and white ‘tac’ was placed between them to keep them from touching so it was 3D.

This was made by one of our year 4 pupils. She made the rose head from card and decorated it with jewels. Then the stalk held it upright as it stands in a glass jar.

This was created by one of Mr Green’s class who has used recycled, coloured tiles which have been attached to a piece of wood and grouted.

A visit to Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Class AH recently visited YSP and despite the heavy rain, dreadful conditions and plenty of mud they managed to create some marvellous outdoor sculptures. Have a look at our amazing creations!

 

Making healthy choices

Our key stage 2 children welcomed the QDOS Drama and Dance company, to help them learn about healthy lifestyles. After the performance, Class AH enjoyed an afternoon of activities with Rachel & Nicole from QDOS. The class played healthy food challenge games, keeping ourselves fit sessions and a final drama workshop to show what a healthy lifestyle should include. A very active, educational and fun-filled day, with a big thank you to the ward alliance for supporting this activity for Brierley pupils.

NOT MUSHROOM IN CLASS AH!

On Tuesday 1st March Class AH enjoyed a trip to Monaghan Mushroom Farm and Tesco Hemsworth. The trip was linked with our topic work on China and our D&T project where we will be designing and making our own stir-fries. Yum!!
We enjoyed a lovely morning at the mushroom farm where we learnt how mushrooms are grown.  We even managed to pick a punnet or two . Can you guess what we all had for tea? Mushrooms!!!
In the afternoon we enjoyed a visit to Tesco, finding out where all our fresh fruit and vegetables come from.  We were very surprised how far some of our food travels.
