Commando Joe

This week we had our next Commando Joe session with CM Sports. The class were separated into three groups (girls, boys and mixed boys and girls). We were told that each group had to build an obstacle course. To start with we picked four pieces of equipment. Everybody’s group worked really well together and came up with great challenging obstacle courses. When Commando Jaz shouted her name, or blew her whistle, we would have to pick two people to go and do an activity to earn equipment for their team. Everyone used reciprocity and resilience throughout the activities.
After everyone had finished building their obstacle courses, two people from each group demonstrated their own course to the rest of the class so that everyone knew what they had to do.
Finally, we had a chance to try everyone’s courses, which was fun. We all enjoyed it.

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.
