Class 5

Activity Week


Class 5 enjoyed a fabulous week of activities and there was something for everyone! To start the week, they participated in a day of sporting activities courtesy of Sporty Stars including bubble football, archery tag, zorbing, dodgeball and nerf wars. On Tuesday, the class were very lucky to enjoy a Science day packed full of interesting and exciting experiments – from inducing chemical reactions and slime-making to rocket-building and even making their hair go static with the use of a “Van de Graff generator”! Wednesday saw the class visit nearby Wildwood at Escot, for a hands-on day of team building. The children were able to try their hands at fire-lighting and den-building, as well as participating in some outdoor team games and negotiating the maze. On Thursday, they were very lucky to be joined by some very special guests for an Art day, making and painting their own monster-themed clay pots and producing some fantastic printed artwork. To top off a very exciting week, the children headed down to Plymouth to visit the Aquarium, where they took part in activities such as “shark hoist”, which required them to work as teams to design and create their own equipment for hoisting sharks from the ground floor of the Aquarium to the tank. They were also given a guided tour of the Aquarium before heading back to school. It is fair to say it was a busy but fun-packed week and it was wonderful to see all the children participating in the wide range of activities on offer.
