In Golden Time in 5LR this week we made healthy desserts. We used different flavoured low fat yoghurts, grapes, strawberries, pineapple, apple and banana with some rice cereal and rich tea biscuits to add crunch! We all loved making them and then we enjoyed our healthy desserts whilst reading.
On Tuesday 16th January, 30 year 5 children visited Boldon School to take part in a dodge ball tournament. We all tried extremely hard and showed great sportsmanship and enthusiasm but unfortunately were defeated. We all enjoyed ourselves and Mrs Walls and Mr Eddon were very proud of our fantastic effort.
This year the children in year 5 and 6 performed a play called ‘The Stars Are Coming Out For Christmas’. The choir and actors put a lot of effort into learning the lines of the play and the songs. We were very impressed with the children’s efforts and behaviour throughout. We would like to thank any parents or carers who came to watch and support the children, we hope you enjoyed it.
On Thursday 7th December 2017 4 teams from Year 5 took part in the Hoops4health tournament at Temple Park. All the teams played well and two of our teams progressed to the knock out stages. Unfortunately, we were knocked out in the quarter finals. All the children had a fantastic time and represented the school brilliantly.
On Wednesday 1st November, 3 squads of 12 children went to Boldon School to take part in a Rugby Tournament. The children played extremely well, developed fantastic team skills and had exemplary sportsmanship. One of our teams – Team B came first in their group, receiving a medal each. The other two teams came second in their groups. A great result!
On Monday 17th July Year 5 went on a trip to the National Trust property Gibside.
2 teams of Year 5 children participated in a tag ruby tournament on Wednesday 29th March.
The children showed flair in attack and determination in defence. All the children had lots of fun even though they did not progress to the knock out stages. Hopefully this experience will encourage them to try the sport again in the future.
