Team Equality have been working hard making decisions about the Whigby project in English recently. Everyone had to make a careful decision about whether a bypass should be built in a small village. After that, the children wrote some powerful speeches using fantastic vocabulary to persuade others to support their viewpoints. Today the children spoke up about their beliefs in the outdoor classroom. Well done team!
This afternoon our year 5 and 6 classes experienced a PE lesson with a difference.
Mr Whiteman with the help of Mrs Fox and some year 6 helpers created an exciting Triathlon course, complete with bike/scooter circuit and running track. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite have enough time to build and fill a real swimming pool, so a pretend pool had to be constructed.
Well done to all the children who took part, you all made a terrific effort to complete the course.
All the children of upper school are really excited at the launch of the Radio 2 500 Words competition 2018. We will be working over the next few weeks to write an entry of our own! The children got involved in the BBC Live Lesson which launched the competition, came up with loads of amazing story ideas and got some superb story writing tips from Charlie Higson and Frank Cottrell Boyce.
Comment below with your story ideas to help get your classmates' creative juices flowing!
Here are some photos from the first AVSSP Tough Runner event. The children all had a fantastic night running around the obstacle course and taking part in the team challenges. Straight after this, most of the children rushed back to school for the school disco too. What an exhausting day!
An exciting morning out for Y5 who were able to experience a wide range of activities at John Flamsteed. Children enthusiastically undertook taste tests (including crickets) investigated different food groups, and created potions made of natural ingredients. This was an enjoyable way to begin to understand the expectations of Secondary education.
Some of us were happy trying everything!
In serious scientific mode!
