Year 6 – Zumba

Due to the rain this morning, we were unable to run outdoors so we took the opportunity to do a 15 min Zumba activity which was instructed by Miss Short. Both myself and Miss Short had a great time and felt ready for the learning ahead.

Year 6 – What are your thoughts on the Zumba this morning? Let us know your thoughts.

Year 5&6 – Active Maths

Whilst some of the year 5 and 6 children were practicing for the Rickmansworth festival, the rest of us were enjoying ourselves with Active Maths activities. The children were split up into 3 groups and spent 20 mins on each activity. Lots of learning was taking place, from fractions, decimals and percentages to balancing and estimating.

Year 5 & 6 – Which activity did you enjoy the most and why?

Y5: Fun Run!

There was PMA in abundance at this afternoons Fun Run on Chorleywood Common. It was particularly good to see some of the children, who wouldn’t ordinarily opt to do an event like this, give it their absolute best – even though it was challenging.

Did you try your hardest?

The boys came 3rd and the girls came a respectable 4th. Well done all.

Well done to everyone in year 5 for achieving their level 1 and 2 RYA sailing qualification. This means that you can go and sail independently on inland lakes. Why not take advantage of this by going sailing over the summer holidays at the aquadrome (opening times).

We had one day of good wind, survived the heat and Mr Cook and I got to soak you all! A great way to round off a fantastic year!

Y5: Sailing Day 1

Y5 had a fantastic day learning how to name the rigging, rig their boats, called ‘Picos’, and learning some basics. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much wind so we learnt how to safely capsize and then right the boat again. A dip in the aquadrome was a welcome relief from the heat!

The children were fantastic. A few were very worried about the capsize drill but they kepy a PMA, took a risk and with the encouragement of their friends, faced the challenge and beat it!

Now – fingers crossed for some more wind tomorrow!
