Year 5 visit to St Michael’s church

On Friday Year 5 enjoyed a visit to St Michael’s church on the run up to Easter. Whilst there, the children took part in a variety of activities that explored the reasons why Christians celebrate Easter, listened to Bible stories and look at the symbolic significance and meaning behind some Easter traditions.

All the children thoroughly enjoyed their visit!

 

Happy Chinese New Year! 新年快乐

Today, Year 5 have been celebrating Chinese New Year. In class, we have been learning about how and why each year is represented by an animal from learning the Chinese Zodiac story. We have also attempted to write Happy New Year in traditional Chinese lettering 新年快乐.  We then attempted to create a paper Chinese lantern with a design of our choice and finally we opened a fortune cookie and shared our fortunes.

 

ROBIN AND THE SHERWOOD HOODIES – Y5 & 6 PERFORMANCE

Yesterday, after weeks of hard work, year five and six shared their performance of Robin and the Sherwood Hoodies with friends and family at Abraham Darby.

The show acted as a leavers’ performance for year six so they embraced the roles and year five did a brilliant job of supporting the singing. The children were fantastic and should be really proud of themselves.

A big thankyou to Abraham Darby for the use of their theatre for the performance and our rehearsals beforehand. The children loved the setting and enjoyed being in the spotlight. We are already looking forward to next year!

Today’s Eco Council Meeting

The Eco Council’s current topic is Health and Well-Being.

During today’s Eco Council meeting we were joined by Louise, School Canteen Nutritionist.  The children participated in an Eatwell Guide workshop. By the end of the session the children were able to use the Eatwell Guide to help them to understand how to get a  balance of healthier and more sustainable food.
