Year 5 have been working hard and building up a regular sweat in PE lessons this half-term. We have been working on improving our stamina, speed and strength in a Fitness block of learning. It’s been tough work at times but we have encouraged each other and shown determination to complete each exercise.
Year 5 finished their final Art block today. We have focused on different printing techniques and looked at the stencil work of street artist Banksy. We looked at the hidden messages in his work and then worked to create our own stencil that would represent us and our own message. The children chose to send messages of: world love, togetherness, equality, looking after the natural environment.
Together we ran a total of 2820 laps, which is the equivalent to 218 miles!
Thank you for all of the sponsors we received.
We all had a great day running our Race for Life together!
Year 5 have loved getting active first thing on a morning by completing the ‘Daily Mile’ challenge. “The exercise really wakes us up and gets us ready for our lessons.” The children worked out that they completed an average of 54 miles per day as a whole class throughout the first week.
