Baildon's Best Work Blog
Our BEEs (digital leaders) have started running a blog to share top work from throughout school here. Check it out every week.
For the past few weeks, at lunchtime and after school on Fridays, we have been running athletics practices for our pupils in preparation for our local area partnership events. We are taking five teams of children over the course of the three events, with over 60 children getting the opportunity to represent the school and develop a love of athletics and exercise.
Well done to the A team, who finished 1st in their qualification event and will represent our cluster area in the Bradford finals, and to the B Team, who finished 2nd in their qualification event.
Year 6 Boys' Gymnastics Club
Inspired by the Olympics, we have been running a special gymnastics club on Friday lunchtime. The aim was to encourage the boys to try a different sporting activity whilst improving their balance, coordination, strength and agility. We will run the same club for the girls in Spring 2017...

The Magical Mayan Adventure with the Year 6’s February 2016
Recently, here in year 6, we have been learning all about the topic, the Mayans. The Mayans were an ancient civilisation who had many strange food, gods and habits.
One of the many Mayan-related activities we took part in was playing a traditional Pok-A-Tok game. This is a game that entertained the Maya, and it could have lasted for days, however, luckily ours didn’t and it was a very successful game with a strong group of winners.
Also, as a part of our homework, we were told to create our very own Mayan artifact. As a result, we had produced many amazing objects: masks; plates; pyramids; and even drawings! And now they are placed outside in our shared area so all the children and adults can see.
To relate to our Mayan topic, we drew our own map of where the Maya lived back then and now our wonderful art pieces are stuck up on our Mayan display for everyone to see.
