The last two weeks have been fun filled and full of learning opportunities.
Nicholas Breakspear School
We traveled to Nicholas Breakspear school last week to experience a taster of secondary school life. It was a fantastic day, where we conducted science experiments, learnt circus skills, solved maths problems and designed our own products in business studies.
We have been learning a Mayan song and making Mayan masks using modrock this week – we hope you enjoy our Mayan performance at the international evening tonight.
Cricket and Rounders
We have been developing our cricket and rounders skills in PE and have also taken part in a inter schools rounders and cricket tournament – where we won the plate (rounders) and came runners up in the final of the cricket – fantastic Year 5 and 6, well done!
The Cardinal’s visit
What a special day Wednesday was. The children read, served, sang and behaved brilliantly during the Mass. The Cardinals visit was such a joyous occasion and a fantastic way to mark the schools 50th year.
As well as following Wimbledon (who will win the tournament do you think?) we have solved maths problems using tournament statistics – which has been fun. We have also helped year 2 measure and solve maths calculations all about themselves.
Today we have celebrated 1960s day by creating psychedelic pictures and clothing to fit our paper (Twiggy and Ken) dolls. We have looked at 60s fashion, the world cup and enjoyed singing many 60s pop songs. The children looked wonderful in their tie dye t-shirts.
The class also enjoyed transition day, where they went into year 6 and met Miss Donatantonio.
Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to read and finish your creative home learning for Monday.
