Here’s a selection…

Our Year 6 pupils took the short trip to Ripon Cathedral this morning for their leavers’ service, sharing this┬átriptych about “Learning and Caring Together”.

Then in the afternoon they put on a super performance of Cinderella and Rockerfella. With another one to come tonight! Well done everyone.

Debating Competition

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Monday Jun 19, 2017 Under Years 5 and 6

On Friday 16th June, our Year Six debating team competed against seven other schools from across the county, presenting their arguments for and against the motion: “Is homework a waste of time?” Held at County Hall, Northallerton, the team pitted their wits against other schools brilliantly and a team of esteemed judges made their decision… After a short but tense wait, the team from Bedale Primary School was crowned North Yorkshire champions. One of the competitors, Michaela, said, “I was extremely happy to get into the final, but now I feel even more thrilled to have won this round!”

Sculpture Visit

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Tuesday Jun 13, 2017 Under Years 3 and 4, Years 5 and 6

On Friday 9th June all of KS2 went on a visit to Yorkshire sculpture park for the day. Thankfully the weather was sunny and it allowed us to walk round the park to investigate the different sculptures. We took our sketch books and was able to sketch lots of different sculptures.

“My favourite part was sketching the sculpture made out of dice in the underground gallery because the whole statue was made of dice showing all different numbers.” By, DH

“My favourite part was sketching all the different sculptures as it improved my sketching skills.” By AK

“My favourite part was the statue which was half human and half rabbit as it made your imagination go crazy.” By OA

“My favourite part was going on top of the Underground gallery as you could see the view.” By SL

“My favourite part was looking at the army sculptures as we when stood in lines and pretended to be part of the army.” By LB

“My favourite part was drawing the animal heads as these were part of the Chinese Zodiac. My favourite animal was the rabbit.” By RTG

“My favourite part was everything because it was all different and a really fun day out.” By FS

Cricket Finals

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Saturday May 27, 2017 Under Sports News, Years 3 and 4, Years 5 and 6

Well done to all our fantastic cricketers for reaching the Richmondshire finals. Our Y5/6 team came the closest to progressing to the North Yorkshire finals, winning one game comfortably before losing by just 3 runs and then 1 run in their next two games. Such narrow margins could easily have swung the other way for the team and their hard work and skill deserved a place in the next round but it wasn’t to be.

The Y3/4 team will also have to put this one down to experience as they came in the bottom half of their group, playing some good cricket but not quite having enough in their bowling attack to stop the runs against them. With many year 3 pupils in their team, this is a young squad and will come back stronger in 2018…

Well done again to everyone and thank you to all the parents who came to support the teams.

Super Science

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Wednesday May 24, 2017 Under Years 5 and 6

Our Year Five and Year Six pupils thoroughly enjoyed Tuesday’s visit by Dr Juliette Randerson-Moor, accompanied by two PhD students, from Leeds University from the Melgen project – www.melgen.org. They discovered how to unlock the code of DNA and even extracted their own DNA from strawberries as well as learning about sun-safety and how the sun can damage our skin.
