World Book Day 2019

 

We have had a fantastic day celebrating reading through World Book Day. The children (and the teachers) dressed up as their favourite literary characters, and enjoyed a relaxing session listening to a story read by someone other than their usual class teacher. Thanks Miss Feneley, they loved it! It was also lovely to find a fellow Pippi Longstocking in the class. A great day was had by everyone.

Hello and welcome to the first day back of Spring term 2.

The children have made a really good start to this new term and today enjoyed another science investigation.

Art Focus Week - Other Faiths - February 2019

 

The children had a fantastic week, producing some great pieces of art for our annual Art Focus Week. The theme this year was other faiths, and St Nicholas looked at the Japanese Shinto faith, creating Japanese fans, tea ceremony scrolls, omamori (prayer purses), Torii gate collages, and koi-carp fish using salt and watercolours. They all put in a huge amount of effort and should be very proud of the finished results. It was lovely to see so many parents at the assembly, and a huge joy for the children to be able to show off their work.

Monday 28th January  2019.  Today North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Brigade visited both year 5 classes to talk about their work in the community. 

The fire brigade explained that it was their chosen mission in life to help people no matter what the risk was to their own life. The children were given a talk about  keeping safe on the roads and  were given the opportunity to ask questions  about the work of the fire fighters. They  were also shown around a fire engine.

Spring 2019. A super scientific start to the new year.

The children really engaged in their investigations into dissolving. They worked well together and tested several different household materials to see if they were soluble and formed a solution. It was a lovely lesson.

Peacetime Tea at the Castle Museum

 

On Friday 16th November, St. Nicholas Year 5 enjoyed a fantastic trip to the Castle Museum in York. They were given a quick tour of the World War I exhibition, which gave them a fascinating insight into the bravery of soldiers on the front-line. This was followed by preparation of their very own peace-time tea, which included corned beef sandwiches, marmalade sandwiches, peppermint creams, and marzipan sweets. This was shared in the style of a traditional street party on Kirkgate, and finished with a brilliant singsong of traditional war-time tunes. A fantastic experience for everyone involved and as always, thank you to those adults who accompanied us and helped out.

Year 5 Visit to Stockbridge

 

On Friday 28th September, the sun was shining, and Year 5 spent an enjoyable afternoon at Stockbridge Technology Centre in Cawood.

 

Whilst there, they spent a session tasting different types of fruit, learning about which countries they were grown in, and the impact that buying fruit from abroad has on the environment. They also had the opportunity to test out their taste-buds, by tasting different types of cheese.

 

There was also the opportunity to harvest some seasonal vegetables and each child took home a bag full of carrots, beetroot, French beans, onions as well as a cabbage each. Photos of what the children produced with these fantastic vegetables will follow.

 

Thank you to all those parents and grandparents who accompanied us on the day and pitched in. Your help was very much appreciated.
