P6a do hockey in P.E

This week in P.E , P6A practised some hockey.

First we did a little bit of dribbling to get used to doing it. After that we played a game where when Mr Dougal says “switch” you had to switch balls with someone, but the catch was that he would kick a ball out each time. Then finally we played a very fun game where you had to make sure your ball didn’t go out of the space, or that someone didn’t hit your ball out. If either of those happened then you were out.

All of the class really enjoyed it and would like to do hockey again.




P6B – Disaster Islands

Following on from P6B’s  work on natural disasters, we’ve been creating our own islands.  We had to provide shelter, power, jobs, water and food for our islanders, as well as habitats for wild animals.  Unfortunately, disaster struck and we had to figure out how our island would cope with a random distructive event.

Here are our islands…

P6B – Natural Disasters

This week P6b have been learning about natural disasters. We were learning how to survive and protect people from different disasters. In a tsunami you need to be on high ground, in a wildfire you need to stay away from dry plants, in a flood you want to stay away from water, in a hurricane you want to be in low ground and stay inside and in a eartquake you want to be in strong shelter.

We played this game to learn about it:

P6B-Endangered Animals

P6B has been learning about animals that are going to be extinct if we ALL don’t do anything. We can help these animals by: not littering, sometimes vollunteering for things like beach clean ups, cutting down on CO2 pollution by driving cars and being on planes and recycling, reusing and reducing products made from animal fur and trees.  Here we are doing a litter pick around the school grounds – we filled three bags in half an hour.
