YEAR 5 BLYM Sailing

Year 5 have been so privileged to be given the opportunity to sail for 4 days this week. We have had our first session on Monday and the children loved every bit of it. We were lucky enough to catch some wind so we could sail off like experts that day. Today, the children lived the dream. The instructors have been kind enough to show each one of them how to capsize and eventually they all had a go at it. It was the best session, they said. We are really looking forward to the next two days and ready to learn more about sailing.

People who help us

Yesterday,  we finished off our theme of people who help us by having a new born baby come and visit Nursery.  The children realised that a baby needs lots of help as it can’t feed or change itself. Quite a few of the children in Nursery have smaller siblings and were able to tell us about their baby brothers/sisters.

This evening’s full governing body meeting  started with a ‘Learning Festival’ where governors were able to talk to staff about learning that has taken place this year and plans for next year.

In the main meeting we welcomed Rachel Macfarlane Director of Education Services at Herts for Learning and one of the  authors of ‘The Nine Pillars of Great Schools’ who discussed Robust and Rigorous self evaluation with the governing body.

A variety of reports were received and considered including verbal reports on Science, RE, PSHE and The School Parliament and the Head’s  Written Report.

Minutes from the previous meeting and matters arising were addressed and ratified.  Governors thanked staff for the opportunity to visit the school during the recent Governor day and agreed that this was a very positive experience for all concerned.

School policies were reviewed and approved.

Trampolining

Last week, Year 4 enjoyed a trip to the Reach Free school. They learnt how to play handball out on the astro and how to perform a complicated mix of jumps, turns and landings on the trampoline. Year 4 were brilliant at having a go at these new skills even when they felt a little nervous.

Today, Nursery had a nurse call in to speak to them. The nurse explained a little bit about her job and where she worked and then she explained the importance of washing our hands thoroughly. The children asked lots of questions and learnt and practised the correct way to properly wash their hands.

As part of National Sports Week, Year 3 were invited to our local secondary school, The Reach Free. They were able to experience the wonderful facilities and had the opportunity to learn two new sports, handball and trampolining. All children were ready and motivated to take full advantage of this experience and were so excited to come away with some new skills! We would like to thank the team at The Reach Free for welcoming us and sharing their expertise. We look forward to returning next week for athletics!
