There were two clear highlights for the Year 5 classes this week. The first was the recapping of place value and equivalent fractions in Maths - the children have progressed fantastically in these areas this year. The second was Sports day! Excellent behaviour, terrify sportsmanship and a positive attitude to participation characterised a wonderful, sunny day at Paddington Rec!
This week, we furthered our learning on Brazil in Topic, studying: climate, rivers, peaks, landmarks and culture. Our vastly improved debating skills were put to great use in RE where the children put forward strong arguments for and against working on the Sabbath day.
We are looking forward to our secondary school taster day at St George's on Friday 5th July. Lunch will be provided so there is no need for any child to bring packed lunch.
Enjoy the weather this weekend,
Mr McGee and Miss Burton
Six children sped down the Thames on Monday in an exhilarating ride on a jet boat. Back on dry land, they headed to the nearest pizzeria and filled their bellies with mouth-watering pizza and they finished the afternoon with a stroll through St James' Park and ice-cream. It was a fantastic treat, thank you Mr Bowles for joining us! Back at school, the rest of us beavered away on our Our Place powerpoints for our new Geography topic.
Wednesday was the best day of the year, Sports Day! And every child in Violet 3 showed great sportsmanship throughout the whole day and participated with enthusiasm and joyfulness. There was tough competition against the Violet classes in the Tug-of-War. A big thank you! To Miss Armstrong and Coach Grant, for organising such a wonderful day.
Rehearsals for Macbeth, Leavers Mass and Assembly are dominating Violet 3's timetable, but everyone is having fun and putting in hundred percent. Next week, we are really looking forward to our Buddies Picnic, let's hope the sun stays out.
Have a lovely weekend!
