Welcome to Year 5
On 21st November we had our Knex Challenge afternoon. Mrs. Kelly taught us all about engineers and what they do. We had to work in small teams to design and make some playground equipment. We had to use different mechanisms such as levers and also to make something suitable for children of all ages. The winning team was Jessica Smith and Ellie-Mae Righton who created six different pieces of equipment.
This term we had a Dance lesson with Debbie Reid and we learned a Viking Dance! We managed to keep our ‘mean faces’ for most of the dance!
We were visited by Dan the Skipping Man and had a lesson which taught us everything from basic skipping moves, up to some tricks and games with the long skipping rope. We really enjoyed it and learned lots of new things!
