The 27th November was our last swimming lesson of 2017. It was a fun week and we got to play with floats and noodles. We played a game called Santa’s sleigh. One person was Santa and sat on the sleigh (the massive float) and everyone else were reindeers. The reindeers had noodles and we all got in a line and linked noodles like reins. Then we had mini floats with different pictures. We had to guide Santa to the presents but only Santa could pick them up. It was quite tricky. After that we had free play and we could do whatever we wanted and we were all pushing each other off the floats. At the end there were three whistles and that means you have to get out of the water quickly because someone could be drowning but this time it was only a drill. They said we were very very quick at getting out of the water. I really enjoyed going swimming – thank you, Mrs Fisher.
On Monday the 30th October Year 5 went to Kingswood. We went to school with our suitcases and not in uniform. We also met Miss Daley for the first time. We set off to Kingswood after lunch. We were all buzzing with excitement as we got on the coach. It felt like for ever but finally we got there. I loved all the activities and I loved spending time with my school friends. I would like to thank everyone who came to help us and a massive thanks to Mrs Williams.
In Year 5 we have all received Playground Leader training. We are all in groups and two groups are selected each week – one for Key Stage One and one for Key Stage Two. We do playground leaders every week on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Last week it was me (Ruby) Nell and Eli’s turn we did Key Stage One and we all LOVED it. We wore bibs and caps and we gave out stickers. We played lots of games like catch, tig and name games. We chased them and they screamed. They were trying to take our caps off and it was really funny because they couldn’t reach them and they wouldn’t let us go when it was time to go back to class. It was really fun to go back to the infants.
