P1-4 had a fantastic afternoon on Thursday for our Sports Challenge! Our class chose Disney as our theme and it was lovely to see everyone dressed the part. The children had worked hard on designing the sports course, using methods of travel that we have covered in PE and improving our hula hoop and skipping skills! It was great to see and hear the children cheering each other on and supporting one another as their teams attempted the course. As well as this, it was great to see the family and friends that were able to come and watch all whilst keeping safe during these times.
In our Protecting the Planet topic we have been learning about Ocean Habitats and sea life. The children have looked at the different kinds of sea creatures and the habitats they live in. We have discussed Coral Reefs, Rock Pools, and the Deep Sea. When learning about the habitats we have looked at how plastic pollution has affected each one and the sea life that inhabit them. Pupils have discussed how we can switch from single use plastic to reusable items to help reduce the plastic in the oceans.
Lastly, as we approach the final few weeks of this term, I would like to thank everyone for their hard work during this school session. In what has been a difficult and uncertain year, I am so proud of all the children for their efforts both during home learning and in school. They have adapted to each obstacle this year has thrown, from being in and out of school, navigating google classroom (I think we have all improved technologically this year) to ensuring everyone’s safety by following the school rules and guidelines. We have had a lot of fun, laughs and ‘air high 5’s’ along the way!
