Year 5 have enjoyed taking part in Active Me sessions. Each one focuses on a different aspect of healthy living and encourages children to increase their daily activity.
Lessons so far have been on the importance of regular exercise, how your heart changes when you are active, balanced diets and how much sugar is in different food and drinks.
In the first two days of the Spring term, year 5 designed and built their own capital cities. The project was designed to focus on the Secrets of Success learning skills work hard and improve by giving everyone an opportunity to work independently, in groups and as a class. Each class came up with their own name and everyone created their own logo and motto and wrote a description to persuade people to visit.
5G – Flmjt (named after the initials of the children on their table)
5Gi – Loris (a cross between London and Paris)
5H – Hamstelania
5M – Trinopoly (based on a successful game and a tropical city)
5R - Partishfun (the children liked the idea of their capital city being historical, passionate and artistic, plus they wanted a fun place to visit)
