This term, in Guided Reading, Year 5 have loved reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone so it was fantastic treat when they found out we were going to be having a Quidditch Day! All of the children were split into the house teams: Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff and Slytherin and battled it out to win the cup! Slytherin managed to take the title!
It was great to see the children using teamwork, respect, determination and honesty throughout the day.

Today we were joined by Chris Harman (The Den Man) to work in groups to make our very own waterproof dens. We were given: cable ties, bamboo sticks, pipes, pegs and waterproof material and were encouraged to use teamwork, resilience, problem solving and listening skills to complete the challenge! Our dens were tried and tested with the torrential rain as the heavens opened and the hail poured down on us. However, this didn’t dampen our spirits as we had a fantastic afternoon!

Today Year 5 commenced their ‘Sports Leader’ training with Amy from Wrights Sport Services. We discussed what attributes made a ‘good leader’, these included: giving concise instructions, being organised and having a positive attitude. We then worked in groups to begin designing our very own game which we will deliver to a group next week.
