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

Inspired by some of his sculptures, and in preparation for our visit, we had a go at creating our own 2D versions…

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.

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.

Cricket News

With the support of Bedale Cricket Club, we hosted two tournaments on Thursday 18th May at BASA – the first round of the Y3/4 Drax Cup and the re-arranged Y5/6 event.

Luckily the weather kept fine for us and we had a great afternoon of sport, culminating in the final of the Drax Cup competition between Crakehall and Bedale. A close game saw Crakehall win by 10 runs to qualify for the next round on Friday 26th May.

Our Y5/6 team qualified from their group as group winners to also book their place in the next round on the same date in their respective competition.

Well done to all the teams who took part and especially to Bedale and to Crakehall for their victories.

Italy

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Tuesday May 16, 2017 Under Years 5 and 6

Mrs Cidey, who lives in Italy, came in to class today to give us an interesting talk on the Romans and Italian culture. We really enjoyed learning about local Roman artifacts and the activities she had for us. She talked about key landmarks in Italy and told us about the foods they ate. We learned why the Romans invaded Britain and some of the reasons the Roman Empire collapsed. She also told us many things about the daily lives of the Romans. It was a great morning!

Year 1 and 2 Pirate Day

Posted by misswbedale on Thursday Apr 27, 2017 Under Years 1 and 2

What a fantastic day we all had on our pirate day yesterday! Arriving in our pirate costumes, we spent the day living a ‘day in the life of a pirate.’ We hunted for treasure, learnt a pirate dance, baked ginger biscuits (to stop us feeling seasick!) and designed a new flag for our ship. Today we have written some super pirate diary entries all about our adventures.
