Here are some pictures from today’s Bollywood dancing.
On Monday 20th October, 16 children from years 5 and 6 represented the school in the Bromley Schools Annual Swimming Gala. We got off to a good start, with the individual swimmers making a real impression on the competition. Next saw the start of the exciting relay races, where the children worked really hard as a team, ensuring all handovers were seamless and effective. Finally, came the big finale, the squadron race. The double scoring race consisted of 4 boys and 4 girls, each swimming a freestyle length of the pool.
Eddie, who got us off to a good start, with a confident dive off the blocks handed over to Emma, who didn’t waste her time in the pool. She passed over to Pablo, who took a flying dive over her. Next saw the turn of Eleanor, who thundered down the pool to handover to Ronnie, at this point we were pulling away from the competition. Lily was up next, who made our lead even bigger. We were really starting to enjoy ourselves! Barnaby stood boldly on his block, anticipating Lily’s arrival and made a fearless stretch for the penultimate length. When he had finished playing his role, Tamryn had an unassailable lead and duly powered home to give Tubbenden the win they so rightly deserved, contributing to our overall third place podium finish.
I want to say a massive thank you to all the helpers and supporters for their outstanding encouragement from the stands and a special thank you to Mrs Van Selm, who helped organise the team seamlessly.
A thoroughly enjoyable day out for all.
The /p/ sound has been lots of fun this week. First we made a cheese and tomato pizza!
Here we are making a ‘pineapple punch’
You can’t have a picnic without sandwiches! We learned the signs for Jam and ham to choose our filling!
We spread our own butter and jam very carefully!
These are pictures from our hibernation day on Friday 17th October. The children dressed up in pyjamas and made hedgehogs from clay. We had two tortoises visit us for the day thanks to Mrs Clark, a grandparent of children in school who used to attend the Nursery. The children made dens and enjoyed stories and songs about hibernation.
The letter “I” /i/
In yellow class we take a hands on approach to learning our letter sounds, we explore different words through a range of media. Last week we were learning about the /i/ sound.
We used ice cubes and foam to make igloos…
We liked the way it felt on our hands. “Brr cold” Said Ben.
We then used different coloured ice to paint the letter /i/ and some multi-coloured igloos!
