IAPS Hockey – Friday 6th October

In the first match we played really well against Yateley Manor School. Our communication was great and so where our passes. But we needed to win a bit more. The score was 3-0 to them. The player of the match was Darcy.

Our second match was against Beaudesert Park School. We defended well but they got five goals past us. Unfortunately, we didn’t get any goals again. The player of the match was Grace.

Then our third match was against Port Regis. We defended so well that the score was 0-0.  Our defending was great and so was our spacing for passes. The player of the match was Amelie.

The forth match was against Chafyn Grove School. This was the same as before good passing and good communication. But what we did much better was running up the pitch when somebody hit the ball. The player of the match was Millie.

Our fifth match was against Perrot Hill School. This game was just after lunch so we were raring to go. But it somehow took us longer to figure them out. The player of the match was Ella.

Then our sixth match was against Salisbury Cathedral School. In this match our spacing was great. Millie and I took turns in the 16-yard hits. I was the player of the match this time.

Our final match was against Richard Pate School. In this match for fifteen minutes it was 0-0. So, we went into a golden goal which means we have five minutes to score a goal the first team that does score wins. But it was still 0-0. So, we went into a penalty shoot. The three people that got volunteered to do that was me, Millie and Amelie. It was a tense moment, I tried to chip in the first goal but missed. Then Richard Pate School scored. Up next was Millie, her hit was straight to the gaolie who kicked it back, she then ran out of time score again. Richard Pate School manged to score their second goal which made them the winners. The player of the match was Ava.

The overall player of the whole day was Amelie.

This was a fantastic day, where we learnt loads of new hockey skills and tips and had so much fun.

Thank you to Mrs Bell and Mr Evans for taking us.

Year 5 Bushcraft Trip – Sept 2017

On Monday 18th September, Year 5 went to Cornbury Park for a 3 day residential Bushcraft adventure. We set off at 9.00 that morning, it was a 2 hour trip. When we arrived the staff that were going to be with us for a few days showed us everything we needed to know about the camp. We had a man called Will and a woman called Chloe who were going to be with us for the next 3 days. We were going to sleep in bell tents or shelters. We did lots of really fun activities, in the evening we had a glass of hot chocolate and a brownie, and we would sing songs and say riddles around the campfire. We hardly slept a wink!! Then the next day we would get lovely breakfast.  On the first morning we had a fully cooked English breakfast and then the rest of the day we did activities in our tribes and a swim in the freezing cold lake.  Then we made the survival bracelets, watched Topsy and Edward eat the fish eyes, and play games like predator or sniper.  In the evening we saw a fox. He stayed with us a long time, he was beautiful but because of the fox we were not allowed to sleep in the shelters that night. I really enjoyed Bushcraft because all the staff were really nice to us all and it was a great experience. I did lots of things out of my comfort zone and I will always remember how much fun I had and I will never forget the trip. On behalf of all of Year 5, I would like to thank Mr Fothergill and Mrs Manship for taking us.

Notre assemblée française!

Classes 2, 3, 4, 5 et 6 ont fait une assemblée en français! They performed stories, a song and a poem.

“On Monday the sixth of March year five and year seven did a French play together. We had been rehearsing it for quite a while, with only having had two full rehearsals on stage together we did really well.  I really enjoyed doing it with the year seven. I would love to do another one.”

“I enjoyed  introducing the year 7 and 5 story of Petit Elephant!”

Measuring in maths

Year 5 have been looking at inches and centimetres in maths. 5MLF played a matching game, practising conversions between inches and centimetres, and then they explored the school looking for items that measured specific lengths. Lots of interesting objects were found!img_0546 img_0548 img_0550 img_0551 img_0553 img_0557 img_0558 img_0559
