In P.E. P6a have been doing basketball and learning all the skills to play basketball. We have been learning what not to do in basketball like double dribbling and traveling. Some of us has also been playing basketball on Wednesday at lunch and playing matches against the other teams and each week someone gets chosen to be the team leader. Some people are better at doing stuff than others like dribbling and shooting so the teams have to plan who they want to do what so it relies on strategy and skill.
P6A have been exhibiting their amazing Titanic homework. We saw models, menus, wordsearches, leaflets, fashion designs and much more. Well done to everyone who brought their work in!
P6A have been learning about shape and have put their skills to the test today. Their challenge was to build an icosahedron (20 sided shape!) out of equilateral triangles. It was tricky, but good teamwork and careful sticking meant that we ended up with some amazing shapes that will look great on a Christmas tree.
P6a have been busy practising their skills in writing instructions. To make sure that they can write a clear set of instructions, they created games for their buddies to play that would help them with their maths skills (adding, sunbtraction and patterns). We made our games up and took them down to P1a to play them with our buddies – they were a hit! Well done P6a!
