P5S – Check out our wall spaces ……

Image result for scottish rampant lion

We have been working extremely hard during our topic tasks and have been learning lots about the Scottish Wars of Independence. Each clan is responsible for their own wall space which is used to display their work. Today we finished off a few tasks to ensure our wall spaces were up-to-date with our work. As you can see, we have been very busy!

Please show your wall space to someone at home and talk them through each of the items on display. I am sure they will be amazed at what you have learned so far.

P5S – Let’s Play Dodgeball!

Image result for dodgeball cartoon

Today we continued with our Dodgeball championship in P.E. The Catapults (our reigning champions) took on the Jammy Dodgers. Each team had to consider how the skills of each teammate  would be best put to use. They had a tactics team talk to discuss how they would play the game using these skills.

Our first game, despite being rather noisy, was well played with some great throwing and catching taking place. We decided our second game would be “silent” which meant the teams had to consider ways they could still communicate with their teammates without saying, or making, any noise at all. This was my favourite game of the two!

Here are a few action shots (hence the slight blurriness) of this morning’s session.
