Year 5 have been very fortunate to take part in the +Sport Move and Learn Project. This initiative aims to foster an enjoyment of movement and physical activity among children through building an understanding of the importance of exercise and balanced diets for a positive lifestyle. The year 5's accessed a range of sporting activities through football, handball and dodgeball sessions. They very much enjoyed the theory based learning as well as getting active on the school field! They even got to meet Grecian the Lion in their final session after receiving their certificates!
Children in Year 5 have been excitedly learning about Buddhism this week. We carefully looked at traditional Buddhist objects and artefacts like the prayer flags from the Himalayas, prayer beads, the mandala and listened to meditation music from Tibet.
All Year 5 students have been really lucky to have a specialised cricket coach training them on Wednesday afternoons. The sessions have been really enjoyable and honed in on many key skills, particularly batting techniques and fielding strategies.
To kick off summer term Year 5 launched their new topic 'Ancient Greece'. In P.E. the children enjoyed getting out in the good weather and taking part in their own mini Olympic games!
