15TH March 2018 – Fortuitous Fair Trade Foods

The year 3 and 4 classes have been looking at Fair Trade Foods available in our supermarkets, each class created a product from scratch using a set of ingredients and a recipe, each class also needed to look at the estimated cost of creating the product and well as selecting the necessary ingredients from the local supermarket.  Wise wolves created several batches of cookies which they sold to the other students after school - they were very quick to sell!

08th February 2018 - FABULOUS FLOWERS

Today, with all the plastic bottles that we have saved, we made colourful, recycled flowers. The children designed and carefully cut the plastic bottles in half before shaping the petals and leaves. The last step was to paint the clear plastic so that they stood out and looked bright and colourful.

Well done Wise wolves!

22nd january 2018 - sensational skipping

What a fantastic day of recycling and learning!

Today class 10 reused all of 116 plastic bags to create skipping ropes! First we spent the morning learning how to plait. Then we prepared our plastic bags for plaiting. And finally, this afternoon we made our ropes and had a magnificent time using them!

Again, thank you for bringing in your used plastic bags.

12TH JANUARY 2018 - RETHINK REUSE RECYCLE

Well The Wise Wolves have hit the ground running! Because our topic is Green Planet, we are recycling all that we can find. This week alone, we have collected over 100 plastic milk bottles and are currently in the middle of constructing an igloo which will completely cover our book corner! 

Thank you to everyone at home that is supporting our topic by bringing in plastic bottle tops and milk cartons. 

28th November 2017 - Thoughtful Theatrics 

This week we have been putting ourselves in role as children in the workhouses. We all agree in saying that they were horrid places and life was tough on those stuck within them! To understand the emotions that the poor children felt, we re-enacted the famous lunch time scene from Oliver Twist! 

16TH nOVEMBER 2017 - SUPER SCIENCE

This week in science we investigated and created working circuits using a battery, wires, switch and bulbs! In groups we learnt how to design a circuit and even how to make the bulb dimmer. 

9th october 2017 - Creating CARRIAGES

It has been a busy week for class 10 who have been creating carriages out of wood and cardboard nets. We have learnt how to safely make chassis and improved our design and technology skills such as sawing wood and using glue guns to assemble and secure materials. Here we are producing our final designs before completing our carriages! We can't wait to see the finished products after all of our hard work! 

4th october 2017 - Fabulously FairTrade

 How to make a FairTrade banana and chocolate smoothie.

The Wise wolves had an amazing time this week, learning all about the Fairtrade Foundation. In our class we made a delicious smoothie which contained our fairtrade ingredients! We have been writing the recipe in simple steps so that you can try and make it at home too! 

Ingredients
You will need: a mixer; a sharp knife; a grater; some fairtrade bananas (4); Milk (roughly 2 pints); a large bar of fairtrade dairy milk chocolate and 1 tablespoon of drinking chocolate powder.

1) First, wash your hands thoroughly and wipe all the surfaces that you will be preparing food on.
2) After washing your hands, carefully peel the bananas, being careful not to squash them. 
3) Next, slowly slice the banana into reasonable small chunks and put them to one side in a bowl.
4) Then, using an ordinary grater, cautiously grate your fairtrade, dairy milk chocolate into a small bowl (don't be tempted to eat it).
5) Once you have prepared the contents of your smoothie, tip in the chopped banana, grated chocolate and 1 heaped tablespoon of chocolate drinking powder into your smoothie mixer. 
6) Afetr that, pour in your milk so that the ingredients are fully submerged within the milk and securely place the lid on the mixer.
7) Once you have placed the lid on the mixer, blend the ingredients together until it is a consistent consistency and the lumps have disappeared.
8) Pour your mouthwatering chocolate and banana smoothie into a glass and enjoy!

 

 

20th september 2017 - Super surprise

Last week, during class 10's fifteen minute mile, Jake spotted a peculiar looking caterpillar, which had just crawled out from within the bushes! We all gathered around to observe its beautiful, yellow, spikes as it impressively scaled the wall. After carefully capturing it, we gave it to Foundation so they could see what we had found too! Later that day, the caterpillar was returned to class 10, where it now is happily hung in its cocoon. 

After much deliberation Jake named our new, colourful friend Jerry.

So welcome to Jerry, The Sycamore Moth Caterpillar. 

19th september 2017 - Wise wolveS' wonderful work

It has been such a great start to the year for the Wise Wolves! They have been learning all about The Industrial Revolution and producing some careful, pencil sketches of Stephenson Rocket. Did you know, even though the train was called The Rocket, it's maximum speed was only 36mph? Not very quick if you ask us! 

Well done Wolves! Keep up the outstanding effort.

12th september 2017 - York railway museum

Yesterday, year 4 had an amazing day learning all about the different trains including the legendary Stephenson Rocket! When we got there, we watched a science show that taught us all about gravity, friction and acceleration! We ate our packed lunches at the side of the Royal Train that was custom made for The Queen in WW2. After lunch, we had some time to climb into some of the older steam trains before taking part in a wonderful workshop, building bridges!
