Welcome to Year 5
and the Summer term
This term is whizzing by! Today (18.06.18) we spent the morning at Wodson Sports Centre competing against other schools in the Year 5 World Wide Games. The children were able to try out different sports (Ultimate Frisbee, American Football, Archery, Boccia, Fencing to name a few), receive expert training and enjoyed taking part. They were incredible ambassadors for our school and not only won a number of awards but three children picked up special 'Spirit' awards for sportsmanship.
The first half of the spring term Year 5 will be attending Forest School on a Friday. The children have already had two sessions and are thoroughly enjoying themselves and learning so much. Here are quotes from the some of the children so far.
'My favourite part of Forest School was when I saw a fox and I was the nearest to it!'
'I enjoyed playing the game '1,2,3 where are you?' in the woods. It is a type of hide and seek game.'
'Today I learnt how important it is to care for the environment.'
'At Forest School I enjoyed searching for bugs under logs. We also found a toad.'
'I learnt about different types of minibeast using a dichotomous key.'
