Anyone for tennis?

This week we have continued our theme of tennis in PE, being able to balance our ball on the racket and show control when hitting the ball to each other. As it's Wimbledon we've had strawberries and cream afterwards courtesy of Mrs Swan: thank you.

On Wednesday we welcomed Mrs Tibbetts and her colleagues from Natural England and with our year 6 buddies, we had great fun exploring our school's natural environment. On the bug hunt we discovered that the orchard area was an excellent home for the Cinnabar moth caterpillar and Soldier beetles, which we found in abundance. Hopefully it won't be too long before we see the delicate red wings of the Cinnabar moth fluttering around the playground.

Whilst pond dipping, Will found a huge water beetle and some hog lice and a few tiny pond worms. We got to make some dragonflies with Mr Tibbetts as well as learning some interesting facts such as: Dragonflies are the only insects that can fly backwards! We worked in small groups to replicate being bees and followed non verbal instructions as to where to find pollen in the garden. We have learnt that bees mostly see the colour blue, so we will definitely plant some delphiniums and blue geraniums in the garden to attract more of them.

In our maths learning we have continued to count to 100 in 5's, we are becoming very confident at this now. In our literacy we have read the story of the 'Fish Who Could Wish' and wrote about the things we would wish for. How lovely that some of your wishes were about helping others and using wishes for the greater good. You are very thoughtful children!

Today we have had great fun raising money towards 'Team Lewis Trust.' A huge thank you to school council and Miss Holland for organising all the football events for us to take part in. We all managed to score a goal in the penalty shoot out and Max was fantastic at the crossbar challenge, managing it first time. Wow! We shall await our call up in case Gareth Southgate needs us on Saturday night.

Have a wonderful weekend
Enjoy the sunshine
Mrs Taylor
