Year 5 & 6 win their football matches!
On Tuesday 27th November, the Year 5 & 6 Boys Football Teams visited Parklands Primary School for our first inter-trust matches.
Year 5 kicked off first and did not disappoint. They started strong and didn’t let off as they took a 2-0 lead after some great teamwork and finishing from the boys. After a small scare, the Year 5’s secured victory with a third goal, winning 3-1 at full time. The team showed a great effort and team spirit and are looking forward to the return fixture.
The Year 6 team, after watching the Year 5’s win, were eager to do the same. After conceding a very unlucky own goal, the boys showed fantastic resilience and teamwork to pull a goal back. They tried to grab another but were denied by a goal line clearance. At 1-1, the game went to penalties and we confidently scored the first two.
Parklands leveled the scores, putting it all down to the final penalty for each team. With the whole team cheering on, our final penalty was tucked away in the bottom corner and the victory was ours! Both teams were very happy and should be proud of their performances.
Year 5 visit Stratford Upon Avon
On Thursday the 15th November, the children in Year Five embarked upon an educational trip to Shakespeare’s hometown, Stratford-upon-Avon. During the day, our children worked alongside the Royal Shakespeare Company and performed extracts from Macbeth.
After their dramatic start to the day, the children participated in an interactive tour of Shakespeare’s home and birthplace before receiving an insightful, informative lecture summarising the life and works of William Shakespeare. As expected, the children’s enthusiasm was remarkable and they thoroughly impressed the historians with their vast knowledge of Shakespeare’s work and life. The entire day
ran like clockwork and the amazing children arrived home, via coach, early. “Better three hours too soon than a minute too late.” (William Shakespeare). Here are some pictures.
Year 6 Steal the show!
Twenty nine of our Year 6 children took to the stage on Monday evening to perform Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Milton Keynes. They were totally amazing, confident, funny and captivated the audience packed into the theatre. Well done children, it was just brilliant! I think everyone there associated with our school was just so proud of your performance.
