Leaders’ Class Blog

Friday 9th November 2018

This week, we had a delightful guest, the ambassador of Children in Need: Pudsey Bear!! Here we are celebrating with him, making preparations for next Friday, when we will hold a bake sale, raising money for the worthy cause.

Perhaps you are wondering as to why our blog sounds formal this week? We have began writing a formal letter, informing Whitby Gazette of all Sleight’s spectacular qualities. Keep reviewing the gazette for our published results.

Leaders here, what a fantastic week it has been. We have had such success with the girls’ football team and managed to be placed fourth, out of fifty-five school in total! (See our picture below). 

We have now finished writing our instructions on how to bake Yorkshire puddings. We are going to take home the recipes and persuade our families to let us cook! We are also having a baking day next Friday, keep checking back for pictures of the results!

Hey there, it’s Finley, Jaedon and Isaac, from Leader’s class. This week has been exciting, as people have doing bike-ability whilst others have been baking Yorkshire puddings! Well done to everyone in bike-ability as we all passed level 2. This week we have been looking at instructions to prepare for making instructions for how to make Yorkshire puddings. In maths we have been looking at estimating answers. In P.E we have been doing tag rugby with MR. Gokool. With Mrs Gurney we were doing coding on Kodu. The most fun part of the week was the engineering trip to Scarborough Spa, where we did loads of activities and got loads of freebies! We finished our Christmas cards. And finally the girl’s football team came first so are in the finals, well done!

Hi there, it’s Rosie, Milly and Amelia, and we’re all in year six. This week in class, we have been learning about our Christian values, these are: respect, perseverance and trust. We have also had our Harvest Festival, in which we made Autumn lanterns and tasty bread. In addition, the boys’ football team played against other schools and persevered throughout the whole game. We are so proud. In English, we have finished our non-chronological reports for our attractions, and they are now on display outside of our classroom, for people to read and choose the one that they would most like to visit, feel free to give us your responses too! 

 

Our bake off!

We had a spontaneous Sleights Bake off, some of us baked apple pies/ crumbles at home, and brought in the delights to share. 

 

Our first week in Leaders’ class

Hi there, this is Katie, Jack and Ben from the Leaders’ class. This week we have been thinking of ideas for our non -chronological report attractions. We all went into the school forest to write a practise report, get ideas and have fun. Also in our class, in numeracy we’ve been rounding numbers to the nearest ten, hundred and thousand, including decimal places. Apart from maths and English lessons, we’ve had swimming, P.E and dance –taught by Hannah Verity. You may have heard about the open afternoon, where parents came at 2.30 pm to have a look at their child’s work.

 

Sirius Mine Naming Ceremony

On Thursday 13th September 2018, we were delighted to find out that Joe, Isaac, Owen and Freddie from Leaders Class had been chosen as winners in a competition. Sirius Minerals asked school children from the local area to name a piece of their new mine shaft machinery and the boys’ name was chosen. The group decided that Bessy was the perfect name for the machine, as it has a meaning of “God’s promise” The children wanted the workers of the machinery to always be safe and protected and the team at Sirius agreed that Bessy was the perfect name for this!

In a special opening ceremony, the boys revealed the machine’s name to television cameras and radio interviews, as well as a rather large crowd of workers. The celebrities for the day were total superstars and spoke so well to the media and Sirius staff. They were a total asset to the school and made us very proud. The story was also shared across a range of news stations. Well done boys!
