Report written by Caden and Callum (Cedar – Year 5)
Year 5 visit Bradford Academy
On Tuesday, Cedar and Laurel visited Bradford Academy with their classmates and teachers. They went to the Academy to get an idea of what high school would be like as well as doing lots of fun activities such as Science, ICT and Music. In Science, the children set Miss Shaw’s and Miss Goldthorp’s hands on fire! Please do not try this at home it is very dangerous! Flaming bubbles flew around the air and lots more big explosions went on throughout the hour!
After Science they went to the I.C.T room and had an extremely fun time doing coding on Minecraft, Star Wars and Frozen.
As time went by children explored the huge school and met new teachers along the way.
Their final lesson was Music where they sang along to the music of the piano. They started by warming up their voices by telling a story about a bubble-gum man. Once they were warmed up they sang My Bonnie lies over the ocean and last but not least they sang and danced to, ‘Honk-honk, rounder-rounder, crash, beep-beep’. Year 5 found music very enjoyable and hilarious – even the teachers found it fun and everyone sang along cheerfully.
At the end of the trip Year 5 said their goodbyes to the teachers; however, some of them they might be seeing them again soon in a couple of years’ time when they start in year 7 at the Academy.
