In Year 5 we have been lucky enough to have workshops teaching us about healthy lifestyles. The children have been learning how to make their diets more healthy whilst having fun and playing! Smoothies to follow soon…
As part of our healthy living unit, we are planning sample menus for a healthy restaurant. They will then do a business pitch so we can see which one is most healthy yet tasty!
Our next session will be in Pine Class on Thursday 26th April. Please bring along any books you have finished reading and exchange them with different ones!
Well done to KS2 for a super dodgeball event, great enthusiasm and enjoyment was shown by all. Thank you very much to the sports council for refereeing so well and helping the younger team members. We left the field alone- Y5/6 played on KS2 playground, Y3/4 in the hall and outside on KS1 playground. A great morning had by all! The photos below illustrate this.
Our first activity this week was blacksmithing. We were lucky enough to have a blacksmith demonstrate and let the children help him make some of his shoes!
A group of children from Tanners Wood took part in a run around Cassiobury park to help raise money for the Peace Hospice. Amy and Luke ran as representatives of KS2 and William, Freddie and Max ran as representative s of KS1.
We have since been informed that William, Freddie and Max came third overall in the race as a Tanners Wood team!
On Saturday 24th March at 10am, five Y5’s competed in the county final at Cassiobury park. It was rather damp and cold but we were very excited to take part. There were children who were part of competitive running clubs there so tension was high! They ran with great confidence and did themselves proud. Well done Zoe, Toby, Ben C, Kyle and Jacob.
Jacob came second in the boys race and Ben C, Toby and Kyle came in the twenties out of fifty boys. Well done all! We are very proud!
Year 5 had a great afternoon at the tag rugby event at Parmiters school. As a year group we achieved second place in all 3 competitions. The children were all great participants and represented the school very well! Well done all!
