Getting ready for high school
Last week, Year 5 enjoyed a 'Taster day' at Salford City Academy. They tried different lessons and ended the day with a rounders tournament. Congratulations to Raouf particularly who won not one but two bands: one for being a great and determined athlete, the other for encouraging his team mates. The children's behaviour all day was perfect and they were a real credit to St Andrews. Well done Year 5.
Chick, chick, chick, chick, chicken!
Over the past month, Year 5 have had a go at hatching eggs in the hope we will end up with some new, fluffy members of Year 5. For 21 days, we took turns at turning the eggs over carefully to ensure they didn't get too warm. However, on day 20, one of the eggs hatched early and Derek the chick joined us! On the 21st day, we had several more fluffy members, all of which were named by the children! Although a day late, Gloria joined us, making a total of 10 chicks!
Here we are having a cuddle. We will be sad to say goodbye.
This morning, all children from EYFS to Year 6 took part in a fun run for Sport Relief. In exchange for a donation, children could dress in a 'funny' costume or come up with an inventive way of moving around the park. Some children decided to run it as fast as possible; others choose to do a 3 legged race! We even had a 6 legged race at one point! Well done to Amgad who ran the most laps in the whole school!
