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.

The Safety Centre

On Monday, the PTA treated Year 5 to a trip to The Safety Centre in Milton Keynes. It was an amazing morning of practical and useful learning which allowed the children to consider how they could avoid or solve many commonplace and daily dangers. The set-up was incredible and the children were led through a town exploring different situations in a very real and practical way. Children had to consider the stopping distance of vehicles, water safety, road safety and car seat safety. They also entered a house and worked out how to manage different hazards that could arise as well as learning how to cope with an unconscious person. What was the most useful thing you learnt? Year 5 would like to say a massive thank you to the PTA.
