    Rugby Skills

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    As the rugby season has finally finished, we've decided to get pre season underway, and took the opportunity to practice our passing skills. The children showed some good development, and worked hard in the hot sun. We had to take drinks and sun breaks in shade but eventually some children moved onto the kick pass. Well done guys, the next Owen Farrell, could be from Berkeley.

    Singing practice in full flow

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children are very much looking forward to the end of year performance. We have a lot of work to do before the big though. We have spent time learning the words and now the fine tuning of the performance has begun. I'm pleased to say the music is sounding good. We have a few talented thespians amongst us. Hope to see you all on the big day!

    Swimming Safety

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Unfortunately due to the weather, some children were unable to swim because they didn't have sun protection. Being the first class to swim during this heatwave, we were not willing to risk the children getting sunburn so decided against letting those who did not have lotion a chance to swim. Can parents please provide sun lotion for swimming days (and looking at the forecast, all week just for play times) in the future. Those who did swim we focused on breaststroke this week.

    Production Props

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    With year 6 being away sunning themselves at Camp, year 5 took the opportunity to get started on some props ready for the end of year production. We spent time deciding what props we needed, what materials are required and how big we would make them. The children came up with some brilliant ideas, and plans. Well done guys!

    Debate!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    In my literacy class, the Year Fives have been using 'The Day the Crayons Quit' as a motivation for persuasion in the form of a debate. I was umming and ahhing whether they were going to get into it or think it was a bit too young for them but we had a very passionate debate from them in Friday's lesson. Oliver Crossman wanted to speak for the whole time, Matty wanted to speak for the whole time, Olly Young came in with some passion and drive. Alex made some outstanding points, Sam made sure his ideas had been heard. Daniel at one point even slammed the table! Who knew that the boys would be so engrossed with debating if crayons should quit?

    Scatterball

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in year 5 were due to have a tennis lesson, Friday afternoon. Sadly this was postponed. This did however provide us with the chance to play a new game. Scatterball is a game where 5 balls are hit, and needed to be fielded as quickly as they can. They children understood the rules quickly, and a few mastered it. The children competed effectively, and we had a chance to discuss tactics after the first game. This meant a steady improvement in the second game. Well done guys. A fun afternoon!
