On Tuesday 12th November, ten chn from years 3 and 4 attended a basketball tournament at DCHS. This was part of the School Games. We faced two other teams, St Mary’s and Gayhurst, where we were split into two teams for each half. We beat St Mary’s but lost against Gayhurst, who ended up winning the tournament. It was great fun to compete against other schools and try out our basketball skills, especially because we had been learning this sport in PE at school. We look forward to our next opportunity to play!
Years 5 and 6 took part in a basketball event as part of the School Games on Tuesday 26th November. Ten children attended as the team representing CSG. It was really fun to play and compete and we also had the chance to meet some of our friends from other schools, which was a nice bonus at the event! We played three games, winning one, drawing one and losing one. While we didn’t win our section of the tournament, we did very well as a team playing together and enjoyed the event greatly.
M and M Productions visited school today to give a live performance of Snow White to all of the school with one show for the Infants and one for the Junior children.
Review from our Cultural Correspondent: "I would give the Snow White production a 5 star review. The characters interacted with the audience and involved lots of common songs so we could sing along. I also liked how real it seemed." Bethan, Year 6.
"It was great!" said Matthew, Year 5.
Earlier this week, we all had a fantastic day as Romans.
The children were dressed in amazing outfits and really looked authentic, some even looked quite scary due to the assorted weaponry, shields and helmets.
There was a range of activities to keep them busy.
Roman Vocation Matching Game
Drama - re-enactment
There were also other word search and picture activities which all added to the fun.
A great day of fun and learning was had by all.
The Year 4 Team
Year 5 have had a lovely week during STEM week.
Their extreme element was to look at snowflakes.
They have been making predictions:
– Can all snowflakes really be unique? –
-How are snowflakes formed?-
-What are their similarities?-
On Monday they had fun making Kaleidoscopes out of cardboard tubes, silver triangular prisms and beads. This was to help them investigate different shapes and patterns that are similar to snowflakes.
Tuesday, the children made snowflakes out of paper. By cutting and folding the paper into hexagonal shapes they produced some lovely snowflakes.
The children had to make at least 2 snowflakes then explore a range of possible hexagonal designs they could come up with.
Were any identical?
Friday the children had lots of excitement together in the ICT suite creating coloured snowflakes using the programme scratch.
“All snowflakes are unique and individual, just like us!”
“Snowflakes remind me of winter”
They make me feel cold and remind me of Christmas”
“I have really enjoyed STEM week it has been fun”
