This week the children had to get a lego figure from the top playground to the bottom one using only string and two paperclips. Some brilliant zip wires were created and one group even managed to bring the figure back again.
On Monday 8th October a group of footballers went to Painswick Rugby Club to play lots of Stroud schools in a football tournament. There was a Year 3/4 team and a Year 5/6 team. There were loads of other schools competing in the 12 minute games. It took Stroud Valley a few games to warm up but we ended on a high with the Year 3/4s coming second in their group and the year 5/6s winning the plate in their group! We all had a great day. Well done Stroud Valley!
Great fun and lots of reflecting & trying again and again. This week they had to build the tallest tower they could using only newspaper and masking tape, the tower had to hold a tennis ball.
The children had to work out how to hover a foil ball using a straw and a paper cone.
Every Tuesday we get together to watch a film ordered from Into Film. Once we’ve shared out the popcorn and fruit we settle down to watch. Sometimes we find them funny, sad, scary, funny or a combination of everything! This week we watched a Japanese animation called “My Neighbour Totoro” and although we’ve not quite finished watching it we’ve given it a review of 5* out of 5!
Our first STEM club was a great success – we inflated balloons without using the air in our lungs. We used plastic bottles, vinegar and bicarbonate of soda.
Having mastered the art of pastry making by rubbing flour and butter together we moved onto scones. Measuring in ml accurately was a problem but we got there in the end! Delicious :)
We were really lucky to have Zoe come and light the campfire for Golden time. Hot Choc and popping corn. Yummy.
Well done everyone who came to dance at the festival you were magnificent!
It was the last cookery of term and to show off our skills we cooked a full meal and had pudding. We had such a lovely time and chatted as we ate.
Well done to all those that took part this year, we are so proud of you all for taking part and well done on a medal. More photographs of the Year 5/6 races to follow
Our Infant Craft Club involves designing, painting, cutting, sticking, weaving, printing – in fact anything crafty you can think of!
I said “in the bowl!?”
Today we made rainbow kebabs. Can you think of which fruit we used for the different colours? We have learnt to use sharp knives and peelers. at the end we tasted the left over fruit and found out we liked some fruit we didn’t know.
We have a fantastic time playing games with Miss Sleep. It is lots of fun and we enjoy spending time with Miss Sleep as well as playing with different people and making new friends. It also allows us to learn strategies and take turns in a brilliant and exciting way.
Here is a little taster of some of the art produced at Martha Lightfoot and Hannah Dyson’s Sketch Book Club.
