Year 4/5

  • Stolen school bus

    Our school minibus was stolen this afternoon. This happened at 14:42 as shown on CCTV. The fence panel was cut and removed, a small window removed for access and the padlock on the gates forced. The minibus was then driven out of the school car park. This happened at the end of the day when the children had finished their outdoor activities.

    The registration number for our silver 17 seater bus is YT14 NBL. The bus has Goldthorpe Primary School written down both sides as well as our school logo. If you do spot our bus – probably with a shadow of where the logo has been by now – please do contact the police or contact us through social media.

    The children who were looking forward to their trips to the Royal Armouries tomorrow and Thursday are now very disappointed.

    There is a significant cash reward for information leading to the recovery of the vehicle and prosecution of the offenders.

  • Why did the War begin?

    We have used our Geography skills and used an atlas to identify the allies, axis and neutral countries involved in WW2. We are going to research what caused the outbreak of the War next.

  • World War 2 soldiers.

    This week in Connected Learning, we researched what experiences men had during World War 2. We looked at an image of a World War 2 soldier and used Skitch to label the soldiers equipment. We are now going to research the equipment of a modern day soldier and compare the differences and similarities.

  • A range of activities for Y4/5 during their outdoor education session.

  • World War 2 events.

    This week we ordered important events from World War 2 on a timeline. We used the app Popplet to order the events.
