This month in year 5 science we have continued work on our animal posters. The children have selected an animal to research and this poster task falls under our adaptation topic. There are some really interesting choices and designs starting to show!
In year six science we are still working on our electricity topic and have been studying motors and magnets. Last lesson we took a simple motor apart to see how it works and then carried out an experiment with it. It was a lot of fun learning and the kids really enjoyed our practical lesson!
Well we weren’t in school for quite a bit of April, BUT the dedicated folders of the Origami club still managed to crank out oodles of giant Easter baskets and Japanese “hina ” bunnies, whilst many of our littlest folders managed the very tricky traditional Japanese lily. Impressive stuff! And not to be left behind, our pokemon trainers made some very elaborate pokeballs and caught lots of new pokemon! Team Rocket doesn’t stand a chance!
Sad to lose 1 EuA class in the new timetable ! But we shall see each other in the playground and at football !!
1 Eu B : This month in English we have been concentrating on reading practice and getting the slower readers up to pace so that as a class we can go forward together ! In Freetime we have been outside playing games and enjoying spring.
2 EU A/ B Freetime : We have been continuing to decorate the classroom with our spring paper flowers and playing games.
As we approach the end of a very successful school year, the girls football teams have been preparing for their final tournaments. The highlight of the month of April was the big Integration durch Sport summer tournament. Both our year 4 and our year 5 groups sent a team to the tournament this year. In a tournament that is actually intended for years 5 and 6, both of our teams were relatively young compared to their competition. And for our year 4 team, in particular, it was clear from the start that this was primarily going to be a learning experience. Nonetheless, they showed great spirit and finished in 9th place out of 12. Our year 5 team showed that they were able to compete with the best and were perhaps somewhat unlucky to only finish in 6th place. Perhaps next year, they will be in a position to challenge for the top spot. Although both our teams were still lacking in size and strength, it was particularly heartening for us coaches to see that their passing play and their team work were second to none.
