Class Blog 11th July
It’s been a hot couple of weeks and we have been working really hard during our last few weeks in year 5! To make the most of the weather, we have been playing football rounders and trying to beat our own personal bests in athletics. This involved shot put, sprints and long jump.
‘I want to beat my own PB to prove to myself that I can do it’ JH.
‘I ran 200m in 10 seconds! That’s my best score ever!’ LC.
In English, we have been writing our own portal stories. Our characters use everyday objects as portals to other worlds. We have had great fun thinking of ways for our characters to enter new worlds and what they could do in them. Our favourite was ‘Fishy Business’, which is about a girl who goes through a washing machine portal into an underwater world full of fishy socks and jean sharks.
On Thursday, ADK and PK joined other 3 gold badge winners at Southend’s Adventure Island. A great time was had by all (especially Mrs Smith and Miss Holman, who enjoyed an ice cream after the Rage) and the children were a credit to the school, as always!
On Friday, LC, TB, JH, LMB and AL competed in a poetry slam against other schools.
‘We wrote the poems ourselves using extended metaphors, similes and onomatopoeia.’ JH.
‘I never thought I would perform on stage, with a microphone, but I did!’ AL.
The children practised lots and performed in front of KS2 twice before the big competition. Well done to all of you, you were fantastic!
Another well done to all of those children who went for head boy and girl and a big well done to the finalists and the winners (who will be revealed soon!)
Today we has class swap morning and 5H spent the morning with their new teacher Mr Mason. All of the children were really excited to be spending year 6 with Mr Mason, although we know we have lots of hard work to do next year.
As sad as I am to see you go, I know you will all have a fantastic year with Mr Mason. You have all come on leaps and bounds this year and I can’t wait to see what you can do in your SATS year! You are all superstars and I wish you the absolute best of luck in year 6!
Have a great 6 weeks holidays!
