- About Us
This week Year 5 spent an afternoon at Parkside Academy where they took part in different sporting activities. For the first part of the afternoon, the children carried out different drills and practised their passing skills in football.
For the second part of the afternoon, the children took part in short games of netball where they worked as a team to try and score points. The children really enjoyed their afternoon at Parkside and their behaviour was brilliant.
What a fantastically Day we have had, conquering fears and showing amazing resilience! We survived the Piranha Pool, imagined we were circus artists on the trapeze, canoed, shot some arrows in archery, protected some eggs in an egg flying challenge, climbed up high on in a. Date challenge and on 5e climbing wall and carried out some problem solving in the Knights challenge. Everybody is now In bed ready for our final day tomorrow!
13 hours of activities tomorrow!
After a long and tiring walk to the centre we headed straight into activities. We have enjoyed many activities such as obstacle courses, team building challenges, the giant swing and the night line. We all enjoyed a delicious lunch and have been playing some team games but it is almost ready for bed!
We have all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Bring on day 2!
We have arrived safe and sound had lunch and are getting ready to head out to activities.
We will update this evening with what we have been up to!
This week Year 5 have been working on comparing and ordering fractions as well as finding equivalent fractions. They have worked hard using cubes and bar model to show their understanding.
Year 5 are also learning how to play the guitar this term! They have really impressed us by playing a Justin Bieber song from scratch. If you have a guitar at home, we are sure they will show you what they have learnt.
