Year 5 look forward to XP outdoors every week and last Thursday was no different! They absolutely loved collecting sticks to create frames and learnt knots that would help them secure them together. Check out the fab photos below!
We had another lovely community crew meeting this week celebrating all of our successes! A huge shout out to our attendance winners our and Accelerated Reader winners this week – well done!
Another special shout out for our HoWL point winners this week who have worked hard, being kind and got smart with their learning!
Let’s not forget our Out of this World winners who have all received the yellow t-shirt for their exceptional learning this week! Absolute super stars! I wonder who will get it next week!
And finally we have our Star Readers! Here are just two of our well deserving reading stars but rest assured there were many more!
Yesterday in expedition Y5 looked at the major food groups and researched why they are important for a balanced diet and the impact food has on our health. The children worked collaboratively to produce a range of anchor diets about the major food groups. Well done Crew Ambler & Crew Mumby.
Last week I had the pleasure of taking Y5&6 to XP to take part in the first evert XP Trust football competition. The children played some outstanding football and it was great to see everyone enjoying themselves and taking part. Well done to Y6 who were the overall winners! Our next event will be Y5&6 Rounders in a few weeks time.
Year 5 were awesome at identifying and moving to the pulse of a rock song, imitating playing the guitar and drums.
The children were amazing as they tapped out the pulse of Livin’ On A Prayer as the class performed the song. 🥁
They also imitated playing the guitar and rocked in time to the music. 🎸
Jon Bon Jovi eat your heart out! 🎤🎶🎤🎶🎤🎶🎤
We had a lovely community crew today celebrating lots of successes! We heard some great shoutouts and appreciations for each other and learnt who was winning the Accelerated Reader competition!
Check out some of our Star Reader’s here:
We also had lots of HoWLs point winners for the children who have worked hard, being kind and got smart this week!
Finally, we celebrated our new ‘Out of this World’ children who will receive the yellow tshirt to wear this week! Congratulations to all the winners – it is thoroughly deserved!
Year 5 were singing stars today performing the Bon Jovi classic Livin’ On A Prayer.
They then listened to the rock anthem We Will Rock You by Queen and each class agreed that the hook of the song was the famous ‘clap, clap, stomp’ rhythm. They identified the similarities and differences between the two songs and then blew me away as they recorded the various musical elements, including the pulse, rhythm and texture of both songs.
Well done my super rockstars!
Wow! Year 5/6 had such a lovely Family Learning event this afternoon! They were each able to choose an activity to participate in and each activity linked to our current expedition about looking after our minds and bodies.
The activities on offer were Zumba, football rounders, tag rugby, bench ball, outdoor cooking and making healthy meals!
It looked like all the children and adults were having lots of fun and it was great to see the adult participation. Thank you to all that attended and we hope you enjoyed it!
This afternoon in Y5/6 Family Learning the children took part in different activities linked to our expedition. I enjoyed hosting a Ready Steady Cook challenge and we had a fantastic time creating healthy and creative dishes. Well done everyone – I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
