Over the last few weeks, Miss Constantinou challenged us to run 2.6 miles for the London Mini-Marathon. This meant we had to do approximately 16 laps of our daily mile. We broke the run down into a few sessions to help us complete it successfully. After each session, we thought about the challenges we had faced and reflected on what we could do differently next time; maybe we’d walk some laps, maybe we would set off as fast. It was amazing to think the real London Marathon was 10 times the distance we had completed! As a reward, we all received a certificate for our efforts.
4H Performing Mamma Mia
As part of National Fitness Week, we took part in a whole school plank challenge. Each class had to hold the plank position for as long as they could. It was very tricky and we had to engage our core stomach muscles in order to maintain a good position for as long as possible. Well done to everybody for taking part and showing resilience!
States of Matter
This half term, in Science, we are learning all about states of matter. Every week we have been lucky enough to take part in an experiment, but this week has been the best of all! We used our learning of salt and ice to make ice cream. Did you know that salt has an effect on the melting point of ice? Using milk, sugar, vanilla and a lot of shaking, we created our very own ice cream! Some were a bit too salty, some a bit too sugary but it was a great experience and we were able to reflect on what we would do better next time.
For National Fitness Week, we challenged ourselves to complete the bingo board set by Miss Constantinou. We understand that staying fit is important as it keeps us healthy and will enable us to live a long and fulfilling life. We had lots of fun; running, jumping, lunging, squatting and playing different sports games. Take a look at what we got up to….
