On Thursday 6M completed their sequences in P.E and performed them to the rest of the class. They had been working on their sequences for a number of weeks ensuring that they included a number of rolls, balances and movements. Here are some pictures:

What a fantastic afternoon 6M had in Hillcrest’s lingua centre! The moment we stepped through the door it was as if we’d crossed the English Channel and stepped onto French soil!
First we had to go through customs and show our passports, before heading straight for ‘la banque’ to change our money into euros.
Once the necessities were sorted, we could really enjoy ourselves with a number of language activities including:
Learning numbers up to 20 in French by playing Lotto, learning the French for various items of clothing (the game we played during this activity was fab!), learning the French for many different foods and learning the French for many different shops.
We then used what we’d learnt (and spent our euros) in the shopping area. There was a cafe, a bakery, a tourist information centre, a pharmacy, a souvenir shop and a green grocers.
We had to speak only in French though which was a real challenge! But we learnt the following words and phrases:

On Monday afternoon, we’ll be off on our trip to Hillcrest. Don’t forget to return your permission slip along with £5, bring a packed lunch and a small amount of spending money.
It will be a great start to our new geography topic on Europe.
In R.E this week, we’ve read the Christian story of Noah and the flood from Genesis 6-8. Afterwards, 6M were asked to work in pairs and take on a role. One pupil in each pair was Noah, and the other was a reporter. The reporter planned questions to ask Noah about building his ark and trusting in God, but the reporter was to be sceptical. The pupil playing Noah should defend his beliefs and decision to trust in God. Together, pupils wrote a script and rehearsed their role play.
6M really enjoyed this activity, and had fun making Noah more of a ‘modern man’.
