Blast Off!!!

5A were super excited to watch the live rocket launch this morning when Tim Peake set off on his space mission. We’ll all be keeping an eye on the news tonight to see if he makes it to the International Space Station!

Roald Dahl Day 2015

Thank you so much to all of the children who dressed up and to the parents who helped with the outfits, they were absolutely brilliant.  We all had a great day celebrating Roald Dahl’s birthday.

Orienteering

5A have been working hard learning the skills they will need to complete an orienteering course in the school grounds.  Here are some photographs of the different activities we have been taking part in.

Table Top Maps: Miss Smith placed objects on a table and we had to draw the map we would need to navigate our way around the table.

Giving and Following Directions: We went out into the playground and using directional language, directed our friends round a range of shapes drawn on the ground.

Cone Orienteering: Before we tackle the whole playground we had great fun completing these cone orienteering courses.  We started doing one course at a time, making sure we set the map and used our thumbs to keep track of where we were.  Once we had the hang of it Miss Smith put numbers on the cones and we had to add them up as we went.  Finally we made up courses for other pairs to complete.  By the end of it we were pros at completing cone courses!

Netball Numbers: This is like extreme cone orienteering.  All of the cones are red and spread out across the netball court in a random pattern.  Miss Smith thought this might get us but we are so good we completed all of the courses and even had time for a little bit of a competition at the end of the lesson.
