Year 5 – 28/06/24

A lot has been happening this week in Year 5, including several children participating in a Flag Football Tournament. Miss Pringle reported that they played brilliantly and were a credit to the school. Well done!

On Wednesday, we had a taster day at Nicholas Breakspear School, where we attended art, English, and maths lessons. It was fantastic to see what a day at secondary school looks like and to experience moving from classroom to classroom.

Yesterday, our school hosted a group of Chinese students. The Year 5s gave them a tour of the school in the morning, and in the afternoon, they did art projects and played football or rounders with them for PE. It was a wonderful cultural exchange, and the Year 5s really enjoyed learning about our guests.

Today, in the absence of Year 6, who have been at PGL, the Year 5s got another taste of Year 6 by leading the assembly this morning, and then in Reading Partner Time this afternoon with the Receptions. They were wonderful with their partners and demonstrated great leadership skills for September.
