Striders Walk In The Wild 2016

All this week year 5 and some other classes have been taking part in the Striders Walk in the Wild. We have been trying to walk all the way or part of the way to school. Everyone has a diary to fill in everyday that IS full of different tasks and facts. Year 5 are taking part in this to keep fit and mostly notice all the nature around us that we would usually not see. If we complete the task we will receive a special prize. So far, everyone is doing great and we are all enjoying it!

Science-Dissolving

In science we have been looking at what substances will dissolve when you mix it with water for example salt, sugar and instant coffee were all soluble. Soluble means that it looks like it has disappeared. Insoluble means the opposite of soluble. It means it either sinks to the bottom of the cup or it floats at the top of the cup. Flour, glitter and sand were all insoluble.

Commando Joe

The juniors in Thorp School have been with Commando Joe and he has been a lot of fun. He does lots of fun courses. He brings in an obstacle course or an inflatable course. When Commando Joe comes in it is all about team work and listening to each other and communicating, not shouting at each other all the time. We all really enjoyed having him at our school.

Ice Cream!

On Tuesday we made vanilla ice-cream.

We had a great time making it and most of us really liked the taste of it.  Some of us want to make it at home for our family and friends and we hope that they enjoy it as much as we did!

caricature

Thomas was inspired by the recent art work in class and went home and drew a caricature of me. I think it is amazing. People will be paying good money for your artwork in the future.

Writing

This week has been about writing. We have looked at Handa’s Surprise again and with a partner retold the story. Some children had a go at re-writing the story on their own, without any support. They all tried really hard and Colby, Charlie, Aqeel, Kobey, Phoebe and Erin managed to do it without asking any questions.
We have also been learning the days of the week in the correct order. We have been practising a song about the days of the week, ask your child to sing it to you!
On Monday we did PE outside, this was fun and everybody enjoyed it. Hopefully if the nice weather continues we can do more PE outside.
Please remember if the weather is nice outside, apply suncream before school and send a sun hat in.
Thank you

Netball

On Thursday 12th May, Thorp netball team played a home match against Royton Hall. It was their second match and Thorp’s fourth match. Who do you think won?

Thorp took a great start to the game and got a few early goals from Isabelle. There was some great defending from Charlotte, but a few passes were wasted. The Royton Hall girls showed great determination and managed to get a few goals. Thorp took a strong lead by the second third. Mrs Grayson made some changes for the last third and gave the Thorp girls a chance to play in new positions. In the last third Royton Hall pulled some more goals back and Jamie scored one more.

The final score was 13-6 and another victory for Thorp.

Mrs Grayson would like to say a huge well done to all the girls in Year 5 who played their first match last night.

Kindness

In Year 4, we have created a Kindness Window. We have all wrote positive comments about each other and displayed them outside the classroom. We hope that it puts a smile on people’s faces. iPhone Image 58AA8A
