In RE, the children have been focusing on the disposition ‘Living by Rules’. In their last lesson they were required to look at the Ten Commandments from the book of Exodus in the Bible and the Ten Conditions of Bai’at from the Ahmadiyya faith. With these rules the children had to decide if they could group any together based on similarities between faiths or if any needed to be alone because they were different to all the others.
In dance the children worked together in small groups to choreograph their own New Zealand haka inspired routines. Below you can watch some of the children perform their routine.
Congratulations to all members of the Eagles who braved the chilly weather and completed the Sports Relief mile this afternoon!
Year 6 have returned back to school after the 2 weeks Christmas holiday raring to go… and today was no exception. Mr Gill introduced them to Orienteering in PE, which they loved. They ran around the playground finding all the markers, testing their map reading skills as they went.
Brandon said “I loved the orienteering, when can we have another go?”. Mr Gill was very impressed with their ability (even after just 1 session).
Have a look at some of the pictures:
Today Mrs Sargant took 5 of our very hard working year 6’s to train to become ‘Play Leaders’ within school. A’Limah, Faith, Holly, Morgan and Ben spent the day learning how to teach games to other children, and will be putting their training to good use during lunchtimes. This was a fabulous opportunity for the children, and their experience will make an excellent contribution to their secondary school ‘CV’. We look forward to seeing them in action.
Today Year 6 were lucky enough to have a visit from Aaron Drakeley from the Aston Villa Football Academy, during their PE session.
The children took part in a series of warm-up exercises and were taught various football skills such as; dribbling and blocking their opponents. They had a great session.
One of our Sports ambassadors for the school Reece Andrew said: “This lesson with Aaron was awesome, I loved it!”
Take a look at the photos and see what they got up to.
