Samba drumming trip
On the 11 of July 2017, Year 5 went on a trip to Pudsey Civic Hall for an amazing samba drumming workshop. There were 5 schools with just below 150 children who participated. We had two workshops with Dan, who was our samba instructor. He taught us two pieces of music. The first piece was called the “hip hop groove”, which was our solo piece, as well as “the power of the music” which we played with four other schools. It was super loud and hurt our ears! However, we really enjoyed trying out all the instruments and learning different grooves. Year 5 had an amazing time using the instruments and wore exhilarated smiles the whole way home. “ It took a lot of hard work and me and the class were very lively and excited!” said Omar afterwards. “We practiced for 2 months until this day finally came. We never gave up our progress and kept going no matter what happened!” agreed Amr. A huge well done to all of Year 5 who performed with confidence and made the accompanying staff feel very proud!
A visit to the new sports facility at Bodington Moor
A group of year 5 pupils on the bridge over the new Brownlee Brother's cycle track at Bodington Moor. The bridge is not really 'new' as it was previously at the London Olympics and has been 'reused'! Year 5 were the first children to walk on the bridge.
As part of their Ancient Egypt topic the children in Year 5 have learnt about mummification. They had the chance to practise the ancient ritual themselves - but they used tomatoes rather than bodies!
Year 5 have PE on Tuesdays and Fridays
