The Friday Blog

Year 6 pupils have been working hard on their authentic Ancient Greek vases to show the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. So far we've been researching different types of vase and have even begun papier mache-ing our own!

Year 5 have started the most spectacular event of the year...swimming! Every Tuesday pupils from Year 5 go to swim at Aldershot Pools. We interviewed a Year 5 pupil who said that it is awesome! Years 3 and 4...start looking forward to it!

Year 4 have been busy making soup and were even able to take some home! With the help of some very skilled teachers (and assistants!) they created Leek and Potato soup. We're sure they tasted great!

Some of the Year 6 boys recently told us in assembly that they would be relaunching the lunchtime games and that if people come regularly throughout the week, they may even be able to play with the parachute on a Friday. It's starting this week so be prepared for some fun!

The first handwriting awards were given today. You can win this by having neat handwriting not just in your handwriting books but in all books - even maths! This week the awards went to Shemikah and Billie (both in Year 6). In addition to a certificate they also got to choose a fabulous pen.

Teampoints were close this week. In fourth place were the green team (291 points), third place went to yellow team (296 points), second place were the red team (433 points) but in first place with an amazing 437 points were the blue team! Congratulations!

Well done to the boys who played in the football tournament this week - Archie, Chris, George, Bradley, George and Nathan - you did a great job!

On Tuesday 6C did their class assembly on Ancient Greece. Lucy led the show brilliantly and the two songs were both sung beautifully by the whole of 6C. We even had an appearance from the cast of Grease. A mixture of everything!

Until next week...
