Hooke Court Residential Visit

This week Birch and Pine classes went on their trip to Hooke Court Residential and Study Centre to learn about their topic, The Tudors.  While staying at Hooke Court we took part in lots of fun activities: orienteering, shelter building, Night Search and Rescue, low ropes, and a Tudor Day.  The Tudor Day included cooking Tudor recipes in the Tudor kitchen, Tudor crafts and a feast.  We all dressed up for the feast and afterwards looked at real Tudor costumes.  Year 5 really enjoyed their stay at Hooke Court and will remember the fun activities and learning about who and what the Tudors were really like.

Basketball tournament

Last half term Year 5 were learning Basketball skills in their lessons with CM Sports. On Monday this week we held the Year 5 Basketball tournament with children competing in their house colour teams in both basketball games and an endurance running activity on the field.

CM Sports came into assembly on Friday to announce the results for the whole school. Red team won the Year 5 competition, with Yellow team in the lead overall for the school at the moment.  They also awarded trophies to the most improved/ consistent sports person for the half term. The Year 5 awards went to Alexander Stemp and Maria Vystavkina.

Take a look at the pictures of our tournament and leave us a comment.
