Last Wednesday, Year 5 attended Mr Patchett’s Sports Olympics event at Newton Abbot College. We had an absolutely amazing time trialing all the different activities and getting to know other students from other schools.
The children and adults had a brilliant time. Year 5 were great role models and ambassadors for our school and represented us beautifully.
“I enjoyed the hockey because my team kept winning!” – Alfie
“I enjoyed the game where we kicked the balls into a goal- there were sometimes 3 balls altogether… that was a bit confusing!”
“I loved the hockey. I’ve never done it before but it turns out I’m really good at it.” – Bella
On 9th March, we were lucky to have a workshop lead by an instructor from West End Schools. She taught us how to combine certain moves and dance routines to music in order to retell the story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Check our our moves! Can you tell which part of the story we are doing?
Our class have had a fantastic start to our Year 5 learning journey! We have enjoyed: exploring number and place value (including fun problem solving); exploring human and physical features of our local area; Anglo-Saxons; painting/sketching landscapes; writing a mindfulness story and dance… and much more!
I am so proud of each child’s journey this half term… well done everyone!
Take a look at some of our photos to see what we’ve been up to.
At the start of this half term, we have welcome Kipp, a great music teacher, to Haytor View. He has been offering music lessons to some of our Key Stage Two children. This has seen the children engage with a variety of musical instruments. The children have really enjoyed learning to play these and are looking forward to continuing their musical experiences throughout the year.
We had lots of fun on our residential trip to Bickington at the start of term.
