Badminton Lessons

Room 7 students were very lucky to take part in badminton lessons today. They started with balloons to get the idea of flicking their wrists and then moved on to using the correct equipment. A great sport.

Science in Room 7

Students across the Year 5 & 6 team have been enjoying a science rotation, taking part in a variety of scientific activities. In Room 7 students had to predict which type of cup and string would allow the sound waves from their voice to travel best to reach their partner on the other end. Lots of fun was had by all along with some good scientific discussions.

Athletics With Manuel

Students in Room 7 practised 'pushing' a large ball first before moving on to following the correct technique for launching a shot put. They all did really well and enjoyed the session with Manuel.

NED Show

Today the whole school took part in the NED show. N stands for never give up - just say not yet, E stands for encourage others so that gives them courage and D stands for do your best. The show involved the use of yo-yos and even had some magic tricks. Everyone really enjoyed the show.
