Sports Day

On Friday 16th June, years 1 to 6 had their Sports Day.  The children were involved in a variety of activities from the sack race to javelin to the standing long jump – competing in each one for points for their sports house.  The year 1/2 and the year 3/4 competitions were run by seventeen of the year 6 children who were amazing at demonstrating their activity, organising their group and encouraging each child to do their best – a massive thank you to them!  The winning house will be announced to the children in Celebration Assembly on Friday.  After these activities were over the children competed in flat running races – the winners of each race won a medal.

Movers and Shakers Fiesta!

On Wednesday 7th June some children from years 3, 4 and 5 attended a movers and shakers fiesta at Barrow Hedges. The fiesta involved a wide variety of dice games that linked to literacy and numeracy. The games were very physical and had the children running and thinking on their feet. It was a very enjoyable morning and I was very impressed with those children who attended as they showed excellent team work!

Year 5 Poetry

The Year 5’s have spent a week learning about poetry and one particular poem they have been focusing on is called The Magic of the Brain. They have recreated the poem focusing on the brilliance of their “senses”. Some poems are featured here:

Such a sight I saw. The glimmering lanterns.The view of the spectacular mountains with deep waters and fresh leaves. Such a sight I saw.

Such a sound I heard. The peaceful sound of the water. The twitching of the hidden creatures. The showering of the water as it falls into the lake from the motor of the boats. Such a sound I heard.

  • Written by Doussou

Such a sight I saw. The glimmering river that reflects off the beaming and colorful lanterns. It makes me relax and imagine. Such a sight I saw. 

Such a sound I heard. The twittering of the birds flying. The breezing wind that makes me joyful. Such a sound I heard.

  • Written by Louis

Such a sight I saw. A landscape of hills and faraway seas. Butterflies flying to its pollen. It melts my heart to see the children smiling. Such a sight I saw. 

Such a touch I felt. The rough bricks that built those houses. The calm, cold water which touches my hand. I feel alive. I feel relaxed. Such a touch I felt. 

  • Written by Zuzanna

Such a sound I heard. The faint hissing of the water snakes. Fire echoing in the patterned cages. The water glistening in the moonlight. Such a sound I heard. 

Such a sight I saw. The ever-green trees. Bright colored houses tipped on the hill. Boats ready to take off through the clear water. Such a sight I saw. 

  • Written by Bo

Such a sight I saw. An immense old fashioned monument with peach colors and hollow inside. It filled me glorious pride. Such a sight I saw.

Such a sound I heard. A deafening sound roaring like a furious lion. It was revving the engine noisily when its active. Screeching annoyingly. Such a sound I heard.

Year 5 & 6 Basketball Workshop

On Tuesday a few of our year 5’s and 6’s were able to participate in a basketball workshop run by the Carshalton highschool for boys. The highschool students led our children through a series of basketball stations where they were able to work on different skills and a mini match against other schools. The children really enjoyed themselves and have learnt a lot of new skills from this experience. Well done! IMG_1608IMG_1594IMG_1600
