This week, we completed the tough mudder! We had a blast and got very dirty, thanks to our lovely parents who squirted us with a water gun! Thank you to those who brought in sponsor money, we really appreciate it. Also this week, we had our final session at Eastwood Academy. We participated in athletics activities ranging from long jump to sprints and hurdles. We even got to use their sand pit! To finish off the amazing Summer 1 term we have had, we played a game of rounders Friday afternoon as a whole year group. We learnt a range of new skills, including team work, which prepared us for next term when we are going to learn and practise the rules and skills of rounders.

This week, we finished our mini greenhouses that we have been designing and making (out of recycled plastic we brought in) during our DT lessons. We have also been investigating how mass and surface area can affect how quickly a helicopter seed will hit the ground! On Wednesday, we have our second session with Eastwood Academy which we are really enjoying.
