In class worship today, the children gathered whilst singing ‘The Servant King.’ They placed both hands together like a bowl where they placed a sad or scary memory. They then blew on their hands to blow the memory away. They listened to the Word based on Luke 24:13-35 led by Ellenor, Grace and Millie. Going forth, the children decided they would take a few moments during the day to say a quiet prayer.
Year Five visited the Winter Gardens to find out more about ‘Rainforests’ and why it is important to protect them. They researched facts about the detrimental effect that deforestation is having on humans, animals and plants so that they could write a persuasive letter to some of our World Leaders explaining its devastating impact.
They had a fabulous time and their behaviour was outstanding. Well done Year Five!
Year Five took part in a Cricket taster session and had the opportunity to meet former England star Danielle Hazell. She shared with them some of her bowling techniques and strategies and was impressed with the talent in our class.
Year 5 were lucky enough to take part in a Judo Taster session which I can confidently say everybody enjoyed! The children had the opportunity to play lots of judo style games and learn some very technical judo moves such as a judo grip and judo throw! They worked brilliantly together in their pairs and as a whole group, listening and respecting the rules of judo to ensure they were practising safely and sensibly. Overall, the children had lots of fun – we definitely have some potential judo experts in Year 5! Judo classes are held at Primrose Community Centre.
Year Five recreated some of the seven wonders of the world using modelling clay. These included: Chichen Itza, The Taj Mahal, The Great Wall of China and Christ the Redeemer. They moulded, sculpted and used different tools to add detail to their models. I am sure you will agree that they turned out amazingly well!
Our class liturgy was led today by Jose, Harvey, Isabella and Lucas. We gathered together in a circle and passed around a cross, remembering the important message of God’s word. We made a promise to tell someone in another class what we have prayed for today. We listened and joined in with the hymns ‘Our God is here’ and ‘If I were a butterfly.’ The children sang beautifully.
Year Five created their own scenarios, in groups, to show someone acting as a peacemaker. This allowed them to explore when people are not at peace with one another and ways to become a peacemaker.
Well done to Isabella and Logan from Year Five who took part in this year’s Simplyhealth Junior and Mini Great North Run!
Congratulations to all the children who received a certificate today. Fantastic effort!
During breakfast club this morning we had lots of fun experimenting with science. We added food colouring to milk and painted designs onto our bread before popping it into the toaster to cook.Take a look at our tasty masterpieces.
