Over the past few weeks, Year 6 have been enjoying having the opportunity to have football training with a coach from Arsenal club, which will continue until the end of term. They have been focusing on the ABCS of football: agility, balance, co-ordination and speed. It has been fantastic to see them having so much fun whilst honing their skills. Thank you to Miss Pringle for setting this up.
Well done to everyone who dressed up for our belated World Book Day. The children spent time with their reading partners and later attempted to recreate the front cover of their current reading book in the style of illustrator Quentin Blake – a tricky task!
This week for British Science Week, we visited Affinity Water Treatment Works in Bushey. The children enjoyed going into the treatment plant to learn about the process of water falling as rain to it coming out of our taps to be drunk. They also had a session working in groups to design and construct a water pipe network to supply a town with water. Everyone held their breaths as their systems were filled with water and they waited to see how the water would flow through the town! It was a great challenge and the children showed impressive problem solving skills.
Science week ended with our celebration morning Reptile Challenge, whereby the children had to use just card and glue to construct a 3-dimensional reptile. They certainly rose to the challenge!
Some of the Year 6s represented Pope Paul at Tuesday’s Sports Hall Athletics competition at Dame Alice Owen. Fantastic sportsmanship, encouragement and talent were shown by all and it was a privilege to accompany them.
Have a great weekend!
