Autumn Term

Over the course of the first Autumn half-term, the children have studied invasion games in PE. They have played football, netball and rugby, focusing specifically on rugby in the final few weeks.

 

The sessions have been great and even I ended up covered in mud yesterday after re-living my youth and playing winger in the Year 6 game!

 

Here are some video clips of the children playing. We adopted rugby league rules to allow for quick play and the children picked up the rules quickly; scoring some excellent tries and thinking about defending as a team.

This week, we have been studying 2D/3D shapes and angles. On Thursday, the children focused their work on nets and were tasked with producing a net that was to contain one of a variety of items. 

 

The key factors for the container were:

1. The item could not wobble.

2. The sides had to be flush.

3. The design had to be appealing. 

 

The children worked fantastically in groups of three and produced some super containers. In the end, the winning group (Charlotte, Gabe and Emily) produced a superb rectangular prism to contain a box of felt tips! 

 

Well done!

Class 4 had the pleasure of listening to the life story of Lama Rabsang this morning. The children heard all about his enthralling travels across Tibet and India, where he studied meditation and Buddhism. Eventually, he made the journey to Wales where he now resides.

 

The lesson finished with a 5 minute meditation  session (hence the photos where everyone looks asleep), led by Lama Rabsang, which set us up for a relaxed second lesson in Maths!
