This week in class 9 we have been doing lots of fun activities. In maths we have been working on time and data.
Also we have enjoyed creating our mice out of card and our sewing skills have improved. At the end we put little candy canes in their backs.
We also had lots of fun planning to make a 3 platform game, based on a well-known Legend. with 3 different backgrounds and stages.
In P.E we are learning how to take our pulse before exercising and after exercising.
We have had a very exciting week at school!
On Monday the 14th of October the boys football team from St John the Baptist against Anton Juniors. The starting line up for St Johns was Jago in Goal (He was amazing and got man of the match) Ollie right defence,Dan left defence, Charlie center defence, Harry left midfeild, Jacob right midfield and Jaden striker. Anton Juniors were wearing pink and St Johns were wearing green and white strips. At half time the score was 0-0.
In the second halftime the ball got hit and it went in one of Anton Juinors players eye and he got hurt a bit but he was able to continue playing. Then the ball had to get changed because the ball had gone flat so we used theirs. Sadly at the end of the match the score was 5-0 to them. It was a fantastic game.

This term in science we have been looking at the word reversible and irreversible . This week we did a investigation about mixing.
We had flour, sugar, salt, bicarbonate of soda, coke, water and vinegar to mix together. Everyone was in a group and they had there own tray cup and ingredients to mix together. At the end of the lesson we drew up a results table to show what they all the mixtures were.
It was a really fun lesson and I would love to do it again!!
Today we had two men come in to teach us about basketball. They told us how to have good hand control. They then told us to get into pairs. First they showed us all the styles of passing. One is where you handle the ball and and chest push the ball to your partner. Another was to bounce it to your partner.
We then, did some skills with the ball. They were quite tricky to do for some people and it was easy for others.
Then we went into game play and played each other by playing mini matches while Mr Hasldion took a group of children to play piggy in the middle in groups of three.
Thank you Mr Piper & Mr Hasldion, we all really enjoyed it!!!

Today we did lots of activities about nature. There were 5 different activities for us to do.The first one was with Mrs Martin and we got to learn about different forces using dog throwers to make the lever longer and then playing on a log see saw to see if 1 person could lift 2 by making the lever longer. Also there was one with Miss Cross-Gower and we got to make a sculpture using different nature resources.We used those resources to make a Ancient Greek Mythical creature or a God. We did a scavenger hut and had to find lots of different items including a tennis ball,feathers and vines/ivy. Mrs Hobley said we had to do some gardening and plant 2 different things. Mrs Tizzard let us make lots of posters that will go around the school grounds or around the garden areas.
