Imagine a bonfire…

For those who may not have experienced a bonfire event last night, Year 3 have used their imagination to transport us there within their English work. What great writing from Leya, Ethan, Ruby and Kane.

Bonfire Night

Posted by bedaleblog on Thursday Nov 5, 2020 Under Art, English, EYFS

Although Bonfire Night is a little different this year, Early Years have been exploring the use of colour to create their own wonderful firework paintings. They even wrote some super poems to describe what they could see.

In Forest Schools, Year One have been discussing why it is important to keep safe near fires and enjoyed creating their own sparklers using sticks and glitter. They then used their senses to describe what it might be like at a bonfire event. Here is a great example from Athena…

“I was in a green field. I looked up and saw sparkly fireworks. I could smell a smoky bright fire and I could hear the logs crackling. I felt warm in my cosy coat it was fluffy on my body. The people are watching the bonfire and the children are waving the sparkly sparklers.”

Hello Yellow!

Posted by bedaleblog on Friday Oct 9, 2020 Under English, PSHCE

Today we took part in Hello Yellow, we all wore something yellow to support World Mental Health Day. As part of our English work Year 1 have been reading The Colour Monster and exploring different feelings. We have written poems using our senses to remind us of the things that make us feel happy. We also read the story That’s When I’m Happy 🙂

Here is a great example from Lacey…
” Happy is bright yellow
It tastes like vanilla ice cream
It sounds like me and my brother laughing
It looks like a colourful rainbow
It smells like a pretty flower
It feels like my cuddly owl. ”

Spot anything familiar?

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Saturday Feb 22, 2020 Under Uncategorized

Year Five pupils – can you spot anything familiar in this photograph from the Hawes National Park Centre?

“We were very impressed with the pupils’ knowledge of the individual peaks and the history surrounding them. It was good to see that they also encouraged people to stay safe and respect the countryside. I would like to say very well done to you all.

Fran Coates, Manager.

Across the whole school, we got a chance to try some traditional Chinese dance in the run-up to Chinese New Year on Saturday 25th January. In the coming days and weeks we will be learning more about this throughout the school after being inspired by our taste of Chinese culture.

Swaledale Mountain Rescue

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Saturday Jan 18, 2020 Under Geography, Uncategorized, Years 5 and 6

As part of our Geography work on mountains, we had a visit from James Foxwell from the Swaledale Mountain Rescue. He spoke to the pupils about the work they do and ways of making sure you stay safe if heading out to explore our local area. It was interesting to see photographs of the landscape we have been exploring on maps as well as hearing about incidents of flooding and flood rescue which linked to our work last term.

Thank you to James for coming to visit us. If you would like to know more about the work of the Swaledale Mountain Rescue team, including ways you can help support their work, then you can visit their website and facebook pages by clicking below:

Building Bridges

Posted by bedaleprimaryschool on Friday Dec 20, 2019 Under Uncategorized

We ended the Autumn term by revisiting some of our Design and Technology work. Looking at what went wrong last time, we redesigned and rebuilt out Art Straw bridges with much more impressive results this time round. Our resilience and perseverance with this project really paid off!

Interactive Nativity

Posted by mrjholmes on Wednesday Dec 11, 2019 Under Uncategorized

Last week, children in KS1 and year 3 experienced a journey of the first nativity, thanks to Reverend Gareth and other lovely volunteers. It was a great way for the children to hear the story from Mary, Joseph, the Shepherds and the Wise Men. Some even got to dress up for a photo!
