A Year 5 boys team went to Failsworth to play a football tournament. It was really fun. We played 4 matches and we won all of them. The teams were; St Josephs, High Failsworth b, High Failsworth a, St Margret’s and Thorp. We also won the tournament. We were so happy.
Last week we did a year 6 assembly about some of the topics that we have been studying this half term. Here are some examples of what we did. Ian Bland came in and taught us about poetry which inspired us to perform a selection of his and our own poems. Adam , Freya and Oscar did a funny love poem!
This week Freddy Fit came into school and did some sports and exercises with all of the children from nursery to year 6. We worked with year 5 , we played hula hooping to see if we could beat our score each time. We had a lot of fun but we were very tired at the end of the session!
We recently finished a book called Clockwork by Philip Pullman and spent the past week writing our own story.
We are looking forward to our residential trip to Robinwood in just 2 days! We will be pushing ourselves to the limits and seeing how brave and fearless we really are . Year 6 will blog when we get back and tell you all about all the fun activities that we have done at Robinwood.
Last week we went on a walk around the school grounds to look for natural materials. We then worked in groups of three to produce some artwork in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, who is an environmental artist. It was really fun! Mrs Pollitt loved them all so Mrs Woodhead judged them and she also liked all of them but she had to choose one so Jayden, Heidi and Henry got a dip in the treasure chest for theirs.
We have been very busy. We talked about how the ‘Rainbow Fish’ changed and felt happier when he shared with his friends. We painted our own fish and these will be put on a display for you to see at parents evening.
We have also been looking at patterns. We have made patterns with beads and cotton reels. Then we chose either 2 or 3 colours and made our own sticky strip pattern.
on Saturday 1st October the first cross country event of the school year took part. MrBennett & Mrs Graysn were delights at how many families turned up to take part and support. We even had 3 children take part in the KS1 event. Overall everyone did well and we have made a great start to the year. A special well done to Blake and Scarlett who came second in their events, and to Millie who came third.
