On the 12th November 2019, years 5 & 6 played a bench dodgeball competition against each other. All the houses (yellow Mercury, green Jupiter, red Mars and blue Venus) played against each other. It was a very loud and very fun afternoon! The results will be in in a few weeks. Good luck to all teams!
These are just a few of our finished Peter Thorpe inspired space art masterpieces. Lime class have thought carefully about contrasting and complementary colours and produced a background and foreground to create this artwork. They definitely make the classroom POP!
After a long week of trying to get our heads around long multiplication we’ve nearly cracked it! We wrote down some of our marvellous mistakes so that we can look out for them tomorrow. Making mistakes is good, we just need to understand how to fix it.
Lime class just had a brilliant afternoon learning all about first aid training. Have a look and make sure to test their knowledge when they get home. 🚑🤒🤕
On Tuesday afternoon, Lime class were busy trying to finish their coding for their rocket game. It may look simple….but have a look at just how much coding you need for everything to work together.
Lime class had a fantastic time at the festival on Friday. John Dougherty filled the room with laughter and was brilliant at bringing his characters to life. We even got a copy of his book signed for Lime class.
Congratulations to Elizabeth who received highly commended for her beautiful recreation of gangsta granny.
This week we will be focusing on the great outdoors.In Monday’s assembly each class got a leaf or fruit to represent their class.We got a Lime to represent Lime class.Each class got a raised bed to decorate with flowers and greenery. On Monday afternoon we discussed which plants we were going to put in our raised beds.We want to put in there strawberry’s, sun flowers, some herbs and perhaps a Lime tree.Miss P-S also said that we will drill the lime onto the side of the raised bed so we know it’s defiantly ours. We will be painting it this week so keep an eye out for it outside ! Also we went outside for maths as part of outdoor learning in global week and did short multiplication. Have a look!
Today in Lime class we had a brilliant English lesson filled with drama. We made phone calls to each other pretending that we were astronauts going into space with the 2030 Mars manned mission. Of course we had to imagine we were 11 years into the future. Some brilliant conversation revolved around how they were feeling and their astronaut training.🌚🚀
In topic, we looked into heliocentric and geocentric theories of the universe. We took inspiration from a debate seen between Galileo and Copernicus and voted on who was the best scientist and why. We then wrote our own debates from the perspective of our chosen scientist and performed some of them to the class. 🌍🌕
