Year 5 2016
Vitality Westminster Mile: London Daily Mile
On Sunday, 28th may 2017, nine of our Year 5 children ran in the London Daily Mile to represent Barking and Dagenham. We had lovely weather, very supportive parents and made memories to last a lifetime. I am so very proud of you all. Well done!
World Book Day
Year 5 had so much fun today! In the morning the children read a story to the Nursery children, then Mrs Healy read a story to them. I read a story called Tiddler that I had previously shared with the children when I taught them in Year 1. In the afternoon we did our Daily Mile in our costumes and then made bookmarks.
Congratulations to Katie Boot for the achieving the first silver award this year. Year 5 are very proud of you. Keep up the hard work!
Last week was Anti-Bullying Week. The children acted out some scenarios in class and discussed what to if they ever came across the situation.
This month Year 5 have also been very busy completing the Daily Mile and increasing their level of fitness. They are doing a fantastic job and are very motivated to consistently improve the number of laps they complete around our field. Well done Year 5!
A group of Year 5 and Year 6 children have been preparing for the 'INSPIRE Festival' dance performance which takes place at Dagenham Park School on 11th June. These pictures show them backstage at the 'Tech Rehearsal' for the big show.
Having won the Barking and Dagenham championships earlier this year, children from Year 5 and 6 travelled to the National Sports Arena at Crystal Palace yesterday to compete in the London Youth Games. We played against other borough champions from Lewisham, Hounslow and Southark. All our matches were very close but unfortunately, results didn't go our way this time. The children represented out school and the borough with distinction and should be very proud of themsleves! They even had the opportunity to meet Olympic and World gold medallist 400m runner, Christine Ohuruogu! Have a look at some of the photos of the day.
