We had lots of fun on sports day today. We practised our skills first by jumping, dribbling and throwing and then after break we enjoyed different races.
Today we held sports day in Year 5. We all competed in each event in heats and then we had a semi-final and a final. We competed in obstacle race, egg and spoon, javelin, bean bag race, running and relay. We had great fun and some of us got certificates for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
We have been looking at the bright colourful clothes which are worn by some people in Africa. We then made our own version of an African Kente cloth using paper weaving.
As part of our Africa topic we have been looking at the different skins of African Animals. Have a look at our super paintings!
For our Geography work on Africa we became fact finders! We went onto the playground to find out facts about Africa to compare how life is different to life in Rochdale. We even learnt how to say Hello in Swahili!
