Yesterday, 27th June, our rounders team took part in a rounders competition at Boldon School. Our two teams competed very well and played some great rounders. The children behaved very well and really enjoyed themselves. We eventually finished fourth – a great achievement. Well done everybody.
Year 1’s Commando Joe mission this week was to rescue some endangered animals. The children had to work as a team and communicate with each other, each taking on a important role. Amazing teamwork Class 3!
Here are some photographs of the children enjoying lunchtime play today, they are especially enjoying playing the games that are newly painted on the yard!
The children were also inspired by the upcoming Queens Jubilee celebration and they used the chalks to draw the Queen and her crowns on the school yard.
Today Year 5 attended the annual Castle View Academy cricket tournament in beautiful sunshine. Having attended a few weeks after school training we came 4th out of 8 teams. Winning 3 of the 5 games played. Well played Yr5! 🏏☀️
To mark the end of their Easter topic, Year 6 have created some wonderful Easter artworks.
As part of Year 6’s Dimensions topic they have been discovering more about the Romans. They were fabulous craftsmen; they used their legacy to create mosaics and clay pots.
Year 3 enjoyed their final kickboxing lesson today with Mr Brown.
They have learned lots of new skills over the last six weeks including basic punches, kicks, ducks and even got involved in some pad work! They have all made such good progress in such a short space of time.
Year 1 have had an awesome Commando Joe session today. Their missions have recently been based within the story of The Lion King. Today they had to help Simba refill the watering hole after Scar had been defeated and left Pride Rock.
The children were tasked with moving water as quickly and effectively as they could. There were some fantastic ideas how to use the resources to transport the water. Brilliant team work.
One of Class 3’s weekly challenges is to use the iPads to solve simple ‘Wordle’ problems. We have loved using them alongside our friends.
This week we celebrated 25 years of World Book Day by coming to school dressed as our favourite book characters.
All around the school, children had a fantastic time completing activities related to World Book Day, reading with their friends and discussing their love of reading!
Here are some photos of us in our costumes…
