Saints Study Centre

In Year 5 there are loads of opportunities for children to learn new things in new ways; our collaboration with Saints Rugby Club in just one example.

10 lucky children from each Year 5 class were chosen to enjoy learning in this unique environment and yesterday was their Induction Day.

They spent the whole day at the rugby club enjoying games, science lessons, making paper helicopters and making slime amongst other activities. If the smiles on their faces when they arrived back yesterday were anything to go by, they obviously enjoyed themselves. The name Atomic Tom cropped up a lot when they were telling us about their adventures – not sure who he is!

Thank you to Mrs Conoley and Mrs Pallett for supervising the children who, we are led to believe, behaved immaculately.

 

Magical Party Day

What a show, what a meal, what a day it’s been!

From a magical entertainer, past lunch and a trip to the coolest nightclub this side of Tokyo, we have had a brilliant day. Charades and Pass the Parcel in the classroom and, of course, a visit from Santa  –  everyone enjoyed the day.

One school day left in 2017!



A Magical Christmas Performance

Class 20 had the privilege of leading the Christmas production on the Bellinge Campus. The children were involved in lots of different ways, including helping with the set, playing the music, collecting classes for their part as well as being amazing performers.  They were absolute super stars and made us extremely proud. 

Teachers in the making.

This afternoon, as part of our Science,  we planted some plants and bulbs.  Because we used re-cycled plastic bottles, we will be able to watch our plants grow from above and below the soil. To make it more exciting we used our very own Ecton Brook compost 👍

One group was taught by Mrs Male and then each child needed to teach another child until everyone had finished. Eco friendly and co-operative work in one afternoon – smashing 😀

Check back later this week to see what they look like when we display them.

Year 5/6 Strictly Dancing

Fantastic Strictly Performance today, we all enjoyed it and we were tempted to join in! Children from both Ecton Brook and Bellinge Campus performed so well together – you made a great team. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves; you should be proud of your performances. Thank you also for all parents/carers who attended, we hope you enjoyed the performance.

Remember, Keeeep Dancing 💃🕺

 

 

Conquering our Fears

Today when Ecton Brook Campus went swimming all of the children swam from the deep end. Some may have been using floats, but everyone got the chance to experience what it is like to swim from one end of the pool to the other.

All the adults were so proud of you children today. The instructors at Lings said you were all amazing and they were so pleased that everyone had a go – even though some of you were unsure!

Remember what was said in Assembly last week about facing up to your fears. You certainly did that today and should be proud of yourselves. Never hold back and not try something because you are afraid – in the right environment it is OK to take chances and push yourselves.

Well done 😀😀😀

 

Gossiping in Year 5

Today we have been having a good old gossip! Nothing nasty about each other but about the old rouge Scrooge!

Here are some examples; I thought the class were too nice to be really nasty about Scrooge!

 

Savage Scrooge is SO mean that he put a blanket over a small baby so it couldn’t be seen in public; he thought the baby was too ugly to show its face!

Revolting, horrible Scrooge once made carol singers give him money and then threw ash in their faces, all because they dared to call at his house!

Horrible, filthly Scrooge is SO mean he was seen looking in rubbish heaps to find clothes to give to charity.

Scrooge hates Christmas; he doesn’t let anyone have even a day off work.

Scrooge is SO tight with his money that if someone with an illness needed medicine he would tease them, shoo them away, wish they’d die and then spread rumours about them!
