    Who will be the class champion?

    Posted by Mr J Chaffey
    The pressure has been on in Maths to try and beat opponents using mental arithmetic. Adding up 3 numbers is easy, but can you do it quicker than your opponent who's staring you in the face? A lot of competition and a lot of shouting out was required here!

    Nelson Mandela's 100th

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children in year 5 have taken the opportunity to research Nelson Mandela's life, along with the story of apartheid. Year 5 have discussed how unfair and unjust the policy was, and are looking forward to researching and learning about how Nelson Mandela was not only punished, but also forgiving in his long walk to freedom.

    Swimming polo.

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    The children of year 5, celebrated our last swimming lesson by playing a game of water polo in two separate teams. We played it with two goals, and it was good to see brilliant team work. It has been a fun last term of swimming, with the children learning, front crawl, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke. The children have tried really hard in these lessons to improve technique. Within these we also had the BSQ 2 BSQ children swim, and the Gala. The children have been fantastic this year. Well done guys.

    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!
