Trip to Tallington Lakes

What an exciting day! We all had the opportunity to take part in three different activities over the day: tobogganing, wall climbing and team building. Everyone challenged themselves on the climbing wall, having a go at all required courage for some - it was a 15m high wall! Some children climbed all the way up to the top, all got off the ground so well done to all.

Tobogganing was tremendous fun, sliding down the hill at speed made everyone happy.

The team building involved games in which groups had to work together to achieve goals, it was super to see how everyone helped and encouraged each other in these.

We have been practising throwing and catching skills and then applying them to mini games of cricket this term. Understanding the rules and knowing what a wicket keeper is and does was part of our learning today.

Sports Day

Everyone was very excited about Sports Day and their chance to join in several races to represent their house. So much sportsmanship and fellowship was shown by everyone, and the sun was shining - what else could anyone ask for?

We are beginning to explore our new unit of Animals including Humans, so began with an assessment of what we already knew. We practised unfamiliar vocabulary, such as adolescent, and used the words in context.

The mandir in Peterborough linked up with Year 5 on Teams, which meant that we were able to have a fascinating tour around the inside of this special building. Our guide explained some of the beliefs some Hindus have about the different gods they worship, all of whom are seen as avatars of the three most important gods, Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. The vibrant colours used in the mandir were one of the first noticeable points we noticed, all the colours of the rainbow are used to celebrate the deities. Thank you very much to Rajni for showing us around!

Today was the day of the big performance! Everyone was very excited about performing in front of the class. It was wonderful to see that confidence has blossomed, and the actions, props and loud, clear voices were a credit to all. Everyone had memorised their parts and they each shone as they recited the poetry. 

Wednesday 8th June


Poetry Week continues… We are working in groups to perform Mr Nobody, a funny poem that all the children identified with at once! Memorising sections of the poem, deciding whether to speak alone or in unison and contemplating actions to go with the words were all the subject of debate today, as each group worked on their presentation.
