Basketball workshop

On Monday 11th March, seven Year 6 children walked to Carshalton Boys Sports College to take part in a basketball workshop.  The children learned lots of new basketball skills and then took part in a number of small-sided games.  It was great fun.

Think About It!

We asked, ‘What makes your family special?’  Some of the responses we got were great; ‘They look after our chickens’ by Lucas, ‘They are helpful’ by Faith, ‘They are nice’ and ‘We’ve a good family’ by anonymous.

Mystery object – this was a Christmas bauble – well done to all of you who got it right.

Year 6 visit Glenthorne Library

Year 6 were invited to Glenthorne on Friday 1st February to learn more about their amazing facility and to research links to the book “The Boy At The Back Of The Class.”

The children loved the learning environment of the library, were interested in the future opportunities many of them would have next year and enjoyed discussions about immigration and refugees that are at the forefront of the story.

Thank you for the invitation and for giving our children a unique experience. We will be repaying the favour later in the year when members of the library team come and take part in one of our Guided Reading sessions.

Think About It!

If elephants could talk, what would you ask them?  We enjoyed some of these questions: Have you ever forgotten anything?  (Mrs Bedforth). How long have you lived? (Lily in Barnardo).  What is your birthday? (Aimee in Barnardo).  What’s the latest elephant song hit? (anon).

There were no correct answers for this month’s mystery picture.

 

Outdoor Gym Equipment

We are very excited to have our new outdoor gym equipment up and running – each piece of equipment exercises a different part of  the body.  The children are enjoying using it in all weathers to improve their fitness.
