Starfish - Year 5/6

Sharing our Science knowledge!

Posted: 5 April 2019

What an exciting end of term! Yesterday was our Golden Tickets reward day and we had an exciting Orienteering session with Mr Allen; lots of chocolate and Easter treats were involved!

Today we were delighted to have Sharks visiting us during our Science lesson, as we were able to share what we have learned about Water Resistance, Air Resistance, Gravity, Friction and Buoyancy! We tried to make the session fun and hands-on for our visitors, hopefully they enjoyed themselves and learned something new too!

From all of the children and adults in Starfish, Happy Easter!

Experimenting with sound

This morning Starfish had a challenging yet very enjoyable music lesson, as we used xylophones to work on a song that we are learning.

We tried to recreate parts of the music on our xylophones, aiming for the right notes and for perfect timing!

Well deserved game of netball

After several weeks of losing to other classes, Starfish have finally won the school reads again, with a very decent 112 reads.

This meant that we have exposed ourselves to new words and improved our reading skills a little bit more, while hopefully enjoying a good book. Winning the reads also meant that we had an extra 10 minutes of break time today, which we decided to use for a game of netball. We are better readers and we are keeping fit! Thanks to all the children and their families for keeping the reading going at home.

Have a lovely weekend!
