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.
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!
What a brilliant day at Ecton Brook Campus – 3 performances done!
The children were fantastic; they sung, danced and acted their hearts out – what a performance, what a story, what a day!
Well done to each and every one of you, you are stars ⭐️ Continue reading
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.
This Friday during your ‘Friday Write’, we would like you to write a piece showing your understanding of why Christians celebrate Christmas. Ensure you do enough research so that you can retell the story of Christmas from the viewpoint of one of the central characters. For example; Mary, Joseph, Angel Gabriel etc
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 😀😀😀
Today we were lucky enough to have a new author in school. In years 5&6 we are all reading his first book.
We talked about the themes of the book and played games. Now we are all excited about reading further on in the story.
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!
