Task – Due this Friday – 10th November
This Geogrpahy task involves considering ways in which usage of Grevillia Park can be encouraged.
Year 5’s have to submit a letter to Mr White with their suggestions and need to include drawings of their plans.
Year 6’s have to submit a more formal proposal addressed to the Mayor of Salisbury. It needs to consider pros and cons of their submission as well as a formal letter outlining their proposal. A detailed drawing of their changes also has to be included.
In case you are unaware the school will be closed tomorrow as all staff are attending an Early Childhood Conference at the Convention Centre.
Both classes have begun developing their persuasive skills through debating.
This week’s debate topic for 5/6E is, “Dogs make better pets than cats.”
Debates are held on Friday mornings after assembly.
Both classes have had their assemblies this term.
Year 5/6PN held their “Little Bigshots,” in week two and 5/6E held their, “Character Strengths,” assembly in week three.
Both classes did an amazing job and showcased their great skills and understanding competently to the school community.
Today our classes were challenged to work out how the Magic Birthday trick worked. In this trick, children’s birth dates were easily ,”guessed,” after they selected cards which had their birth dates on.
Eventually, after some clues were given, all children knew the Maths behind the task and made their own set of cards to use with family, friends and school buddies.
Some students have been given the extra task of working out why the cards work.
Each Thursday morning we are lucky enough to have Mr Pearce share his Ozobot and Scratch knowledge with us. Many children have been able to make their own computer games while some have used their creative skills to complete cartoons.
Both classes have been the task of designing and building a Ninja Warrior Course on the Log Park.
After measuring the dimensions of the Log Park students completed a map showing all length measurements and nearby buildings and fences. They have also worked out the perimeter and area and most are now starting their construction using a method of their own choosing.
As part of Pos Ed, we have been journaling about a new skill we would like to learn. Students have been practising and figuring out what the main points of their skill is.
These students found they had to:
~jump in when the rope is up
~jump twice as fast with twice as many ropes
Another reminder that our school is having a casual day tomorrow the 11th of August. We would like to children to bring in a toy, game or DVD which will be sold at the Spring Fair.
Please note that soft toys are not to be brought in.
Our classes had nineteen students engaged in today’s inter school cross country event.
It was great to see the commitment of our students with many attempting this event for the first time.
We managed to snap some of our runners before they left for the race this morning.
Well done to all our runners.
