Year 5 had a fantastic day yesterday celebrating Mexico Day.
This week, Year 5 experienced the next best thing to travelling to the Ancient Maya destination of Mexico. The pupils enjoyed exploring key historic sites in Mayan History – it was a brilliant way to explore Mayan history!
Year 5 were fortunate to have a professional computer programmer come in this afternoon to teach us all about game design. Mr Brady (Luca’s Dad) talked to us about the skills involved in game design and then we had a go at designing our own games.
We chose to focus on 3D shapes! The children took part in active learning to recognise the properties of 3D shapes and then made a range of 3D shapes out of mini marshmallows and matchsticks. We had a great morning and the children enjoyed listening to this rap while we worked!
On Monday some of the Year 5 children went to the Excel Sports Centre for a Dodgeball values tournament. The children played really well and showed good respect, honesty and teamwork. Well done to all involved!
