NFL Flag Football

Congratulations to The Dungworth Foxes Flag Football Team. We competed today (20.5.22) at Concord in the Sheffield regional tournament. We won 1 of the 4 games we played but were very competitive in all games, only marginally losing to the eventual tournament winners. Some standout moments included Alfie's interception, Freddie's running touchdowns, Alfie's passing touchdown to Joshua and Matilda's consistently incredible tackling. Well done! Looking forward to next year already.

Football - 31st January

Well done to our boys who entered the Y5/6 football competition on Monday. Everyone played really well and gave it a really good go.

 We played 6 games, winning two of them. Our goal scorers were Madeon, Jake and Bradley.

Player of the tournament goes to Bobby Boswell who did an incredible job in goal for us and made some impressive saves. 

Tag Rugby

Well done to the children who took part in the tag rugby event on Tuesday 9th November. You represented our school incredibly well and we are all very proud of your effort!

Music this half-term

This half-term we have been learning to identify basic style indicators of classic rock music and some of the elements of music. We have also learnt how to sing the song 'Livin' on a prayer' by Bon Jovi and have used the notes G, A and B to play it on the glockenspiel. Here is our final performance!

Structures

As part of our unit on structures in DT, we have now moved on to wooden structures. We thought in particular about creating gusset plates using card to strengthen the joins between wooden beams.

Structures

As part of our unit on structures in DT we thought about how to make strong straw structures so that we could build the tallest structures possible.

Peer Mediator Conference video

 Although it feels like a lifetime ago, at the end of January a number of children from Ivy class - who act as Peer Mediators in the playground - visited Sheffield University for a conference celebrating all of the fantastic things we do at Bradfield Dungworth and to take ideas from other schools. Below is the video posted on YouTube - see if you can spot any of our class in the video.

27 degrees

Alice Rosa Ferguson(a couple of years ago)

The answer is 27. I did 90-63, which gave me the answer!

Dan(a couple of years ago)

I think angle A is 27 degrees

campbell(a couple of years ago)

117

seamus(a couple of years ago)

27

Molly Axon(a couple of years ago)

I think the answer is 117 degrees because you take 63 away from 180 because it is a straight line and a straight line is 180 degrees

Mert(a couple of years ago)

17

Emily Rose Lister Tingle(a couple of years ago)

The answer is 27 !! I get it kind of its also quite easy because you just do column subtraction.

matthew b(a couple of years ago)

the answer is 61

Acids and Alkalis

On Tuesday 10th March we had Jack from the AMRC back in with us. This time, however,  we weren't looking at using tinkercad for 3D printing. We did some work around acids and alkalis. We got to taste very weak acids and alkalis. We also talked about the PH scale and used acids and alkalis to make a neutral solution. We found out that toothpaste is a weak alkali which helps counteract the acid created from saliva mixing with sugar. 

 We talked about how, although soap is an alkali, we can't use a strong alkali on our skin as it would be corrosive. 

Human Development

As part of our topic on life cycles, we have been thinking about human development. Last week we thought about just how rapid development can be during infancy and we also considered prenatal development too. Below is a powerpoint we created with some key changes that occur during infancy. Feel free to download the presentation and add photos of yourslef at each stage.  

Earlier in the topic, we also used ageing apps to think about how we may look when we are older. See how Ivy class teacher Mr Beagle might look.

I learnt that when they were about to get on the ship they would get stripped and checked if they had a disease but if they did they would have to go back to there home . also if they were checked on the ship and they were ill they would of got thrown off board.

Dora Jones(a couple of years ago)

I really enjoyed the trip to the house of William Wilberforce, first we looked at some old artefacts. Then we had lunch, before making African masks. I had a great time and would happily go again!

Alice Rosa Ferguson(a couple of years ago)

I learnt that women killed their children as a rebellion and William Wilberforce was the founder of the RSPCA.

Richard(a couple of years ago)

I leaned that William Wilberforce was a religious person

Richard(a couple of years ago)

It was really fun and educational and I enjoyed it

Rapid Recall mats

 We recently invested in rapid recall mats from Year 1 to Year 6. They enable us to practice key skills on a regular basis and are perfect for spaced learning. 

Rounding

While learning how to round numbers, we stumbled across a video with an interesting approach to how to round. It involved imagining a number line as a hill and it really helped with some of the children's understanding. Find a link to the video below as well as pictures of the children's whiteboards.
