Golden Owls Millennium Square
Dear Golden Owls entrant,
We are writing to invite you, your family, friends and anyone you want to invite to a special screening of the 2018 Golden Owls Film Awards Films on the big screen on Millennium Square.
We have managed to take over the big screen on 14th and 15th July from 10am-12noon. How did we manage that? Well over 350 children and young people entered a competition run by Leeds City Council on how to make the city centre more child friendly and one of the ten winning ideas included showing free films on Millennium square. What better films could we show... than your films!!
On Saturday 14th July from 10am -12noon films submitted by community groups and young people 14+ will be screened and on Sunday 15th July from 10am -12 noon films produced by children and young people aged 5-15 will be screened.
As part of the child friendly city centre project we will be providing FREE popcorn to children, young people and families watching the screenings on a first come first serve basis from 10am on both Saturday and Sunday. Benches are provided but feel welcome to bring your own portable / collapsible seating, cushions and blankets if you wish.
We only have 120 minutes each day and so sadly can't guarantee every film entered will definitely be shown but we are just finalising the programme to try and ensure we show as many films as possible.
Children need to bring in either some product packaging( sweetwrappers, empty cans, washing up bottles etc) or a photo of a famous person or logo (e.g Leeds FC or FIFA).
We are creating a pop art project and making our own composition using recognizable products and images from today. Please can these be brought in by Wednesday 13th June.
Half-term Learning Log
Following on from your amazing Easter Learning Logs, this half term we would like you to create a Pre-Learning Log about your next topic. You can include anything that you want and display it using A3 paper or, if you are feeling creative, you could create a video documentary, PowerPoint presentation or a news report…it is completely up to you! Please send any computer based projects to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your class teacher will have told you all about your next topic but if you are unsure, check your class webpage and that will give you an idea of the things you’ll be finding out about. We would like this homework to be completed by Monday 4th June. The most interesting and unique ones will be displayed in school. We look forward to seeing your amazing creations!
Year 5 Fire Safety Talk
On Tuesday afternoon the Fire Service visited Year 5. the children discussed three DO's and one DON'T.
The three DO's were to; 1. Have a working fire alarm fitted. 2. Have a fire plan. 3. Always wear your seat belt.
The one DON'T was not to make hoax calls, as this is an incredibly dangerous thing to do.
For more information follow the link below.
Our first set of sessions have come to an end. All the children built their own figure and then painted it, using figures and paints supplied by Games Workshop. During the last session the group had the opportunity to play a shortened version of Warhammer using rulers and dice. Please see the newsletter below for more information about The Schools Alliance. Can you find Sharp Lane getting a mention?
We will be running the club again in Spring 2.
Mr Bolton and Mr Oakley
Our new topic in class is The Anglo-Saxons. We will be looking at all aspects of Anglo-Saxon life. Starting with where they came from and where they settled, through to how the Anglo-Saxon period ended.
Below are some links to look through at home.

For those of you who want to try HTML at home here are the basic pieces of code you need.
Remember to save your page as a notebook file and as a .html file.
Your webpage goes between the above.

Happy webpage building!
Who was correct Aristotle or Galileo?
The class have started their new Science topic today, Forces. It follows on well from Space. Hopefully some of the concepts we have looked at in that topic will be explained in our Forces topic.
Today we looked at how fast a piece of paper falls to the ground and what other things effect this. I am sure discussions will follow over the next few weeks.
The class have learnt about The Planets, The Sun, The Earth and The Moon. We discussed the relative size of The Moon and The Sun, we found out that The Sun is 400 times bigger than The Moon! We were surprised as they look the same size in the sky. To try and understand this we went outside and took some perspective photos.
The Moon Homework
I know many of you have enjoyed looking for the Moon to view its different phases but have felt quite frustrated due to the cloud cover we have had recently. The webpage below should help you with what you should be seeing on a night.
Please still take the time to view The Moon first hand before using the webpage.
Happy Moon gazing.
First Full Week!
Wow, first week back and its been a busy one. We have started our Talk for Writing text all about an "Alien Landing". We have a super set of actions to accompany the text. Look out for the video!
Please keep looking at the moon and fill in the sheet.
