Bailey the YouTuber

I have been watching YouTube for a few years now and have always enjoyed watching other YouTubers playing games.

I always hoped that one day I would become a YouTuber and record my own videos but I was too nervous. Then Miss Craighan taught us how to vlog-which is how I started my channel. Without her I wouldn’t have had the courage and knowledge to record any videos.

Class 4

Blue Planet

Monday 1st February 2016

As a class, in year 5-6 , we went on a school trip to Blue Planet Aquarium. There was so much to learn, and to discover about the amazing mysterious sea creatures/creatures! We went on this magnificent trip due to our topic (water, water everywhere! ).

We got to watch an amazing under water show, and we got to see some divers swimming with the sharks and deadly creatures! It was very fascinating as I had never seen anyone swim with sharks! I can tell you now , I wouldn’t ever dare swim with them!


But you haven’t heard the best part yet……!

There was a very unique tunnel with a moving floor, which took you through the middle of the sea creature’s humungous tank. When I was travelling through the tank on the moving rubber floor, I imagined that I was lost in the sea with all the wonderful creatures. Some were big , some were small and some were so tiny that you would probably need the world’s strongest microscope to be able to study them properly. The roof of the tunnel was made out of glass too. I loved staring up at the roof as the big graceful rays spread their wings like butterflies soaring through the sky in the summer. I was lost in my own world, and I would love to be a fish in the tank, with nothing on my mind, just carelessly swimming around with all of my sea creature friends around me.

The graceful music entranced me and made me as quite as a mouse. I was gently being moved by the magical moving floor. I was lost in all the different colours, where ever I looked there was something new for my eyes to scan and something else to discover and learn about each different species. It was a totally amazing and different experience.


I would rate this school trip 10/10. I think it was a super day and would be suitable for all ages! Check out their website at !


Class 4


Gangsta Granny – David Walliams

I am currently reading Gangsta Granny by David Walliams and I love it! I don’t really like reading much (I prefer maths!) but I recently discovered Walliams’ books and they’re great.

I love how his stories have great story lines as well as humour and good morals. So far I have read The Boy in the Dress and Billionaire Boy. It normally takes me months to read a whole book but I can read one of these books in days because I just cant put them down! I cannot wait to read his new book, I don’t know what I will do when I have read everything he has written.

I would recommend his books to everyone, especially children aren’t huge fans of reading…I promise you, you will not be able to stop reading!

Thank you David Walliams!


Year 6


Head boy and Head girl elections

When reading the children’s end of year questionnaires Mrs Womersley found that they thought the school would benefit from appointing a Head boy and Head girl.It was suggested that a sensible and reliable boy and girl from Year 6 should be elected by their peers to assist the School Council in continuing to make West Bretton School somewhere to be proud of.

Alexander, Mikala, Isobel and Brianna delivered their speeches to the whole school in Monday morning’s assembly. All four children did a fantastic job and made the staff and pupils of West Bretton proud.


Below you can find copies of the candidate’s speeches and presentations:


Brianna’s Head Girl Presentation



My name is Alexander,

I’s like to be head boy.

When you’ve heard all the speeches,

I hope you make the right choice.

I’m sensible and organised,

With a sympathetic ear.

So if you have a problem,

You know I’m always here.

I’ll give any adult, child or visitor,

My very well mannered respect.

I’ll do my best for everyone,

It’s the least you can expect.

I’d be honoured if you chose me,

Ahead of all the rest,

And ill give you 110% effort

To make West Bretton the best!



Isobel’s Head Girl Presentation

Isobel also made a music video with her friends to show during assembly.



Mikala delivered a heart felt speech about why she should be voted head girl. Her speech included quotes from her friends about her and lots of fantastic ideas about how she would help the school change for the better. Mikala articulately described herself as reliable, approachable and hard working, all traits a Head Girl should have!


The new Head boy and Head girl of West Bretton Junior and Infant school are…

Isobel and Alex!


Year 6’s trip to Robinwood

On the 18th – 20th of September, six of our Year 6 children went on their class residential trip with Netherton School to Robinwood.

We had a fantastic time and the activities were great. Our leaders were Mike, Matthew, Shazia they were all amazing and very supportive.

First we did the night line it was all about working as a team by passing messages. We all had goggles on and we couldn’t see anything, there was a rope we had to follow through obstacles.

Next,we did the water activities like canoeing and raft building. Canoeing was great we learnt how to move the boat in different directions by using our oar. We also played lots of games in our canoe. Raft building was fun, when we had made our rafts we tested them on the lake (people kept falling in). At the end we did a sky dive into the lake it was freezing.

In the evening we did a team challenge where we had to split up in to teams and played games. The group with the most ping pong balls won! Before bed we had hot chocolate, the first night was scary because some of us hadn’t stayed away from home before but the night staff were great put us at ease.

The next day was packed with activities like the trapeze. The trapeze was very scary because we had to jump off a 4 metre high platform and grab onto a pole. The zip-wire was next it was so long and high. Everyone loved the giant swing and the faces people pulled were hilarious. We did lots more activities over all three days.

We loved our time at Robin wood and would like to to say thank you to all the staff.

Have a look at what we got up to:

During morning assembly the whole school stood and practiced the National Anthem to celebrate. Each class then spent an afternoon learning about the Queen and why she is so important in modern Britain.

Class 2

Class 2 spent time designing the Queen some new crown jewels, making their own Union Jacks and decorating crowns with words related to the royal family and the Queen herself. Here’s what they had to say:

‘I am colouring in a crown and other things that the Queen has got. I am doing it because it is the Queens anniversary, she has been the Queen for 63 years.’ Cameron

‘I am colouring in an Union Jack, it is red, blue and white. It is our countries flag. We are celebrating the Queen’s anniversary, she has been Queen for the longest!’ Gracie Q

‘We are decorating crowns using words about the Queen, I have written gems and palace so far. I have written palace because she lives in Buckingham palace.’Evie C

‘The Queen has got grey hair and is very special. She sometimes wears a cloak and is very important. I will put the word ‘important’ on my crown.’ Lori

Foundation Stage

Foundation stage built castles fit for a Queen, drew portraits, made crowns AND DRESSED LIKE ROYALTY! They have learnt a lot today!

‘We are making pictures of the Queen and making crowns, I like the Queen.’ Zara

‘It’s Queen day! She has been sitting on her chair for a very long time!’ Maisey

‘The Queen’s job is to look after everyone in the country. She wears a pretty dress and a crown, a dazzling crown! She wears clip-clop shoes. She is on money and pennies and stamps.’ Isla

‘She lives in a castle and she does work all over the world.’ Jacob

Each child in Class 3 took the role of ‘Royal Artist’ and produced some fantastic portraits of Queen Elizabeth.

‘We are sketching the Queen because she is the longest reigning British monarch’ Maddy

Class 4 spent time researching the Queen’s life so they could create beautiful pieces of work to display around school. The children found out about many things including the Queen’s different houses, different Prime Ministers that have served under the Queen and the Queen’s family.

‘We are researching the Queen because she is the longest reigning monarch, longer that Queen Victoria.’ Grace

Congratulations Queen Elizabeth II we at West Bretton Junior and Infant School hope you reign for many years to come!
