Y6 SATS tests and treat (Summer 1)

From the 9th May until the 12th May, the Y6s took part in their SATs.

The order shown below is the order they took them in:

Monday – Reading paper [1 hour]

Tuesday – SPAG paper and spelling paper [1 hour 5 mins]

Wednesday – Arithmetic [30 mins] Maths Reasoning 1 [40 mins ]

Thursday – Maths Reasoning 2 [40 mins]

Mrs Haworth and Miss Smith said, “They all showed great resilience, were very mature about it and always had a smile on their faces even when they found it tough.” The Y6s are now very pleased that these tests are over and wish the Y2s good luck.

As a treat for our hard work, we went to the Showroom Cinema to watch ‘Pan’ and were all given sweet popcorn and a choice of either blackcurrant or orange juice. After the film had ended, we went back to school where   Domino pizzas and donuts were waiting for us in our class.

Cricket (summer 1)

On Thursday 19th May 2016, the Y5s went to a Kwik Cricket tournament. It was at Whitley Hall Cricket Club and the schools that were there were us, Grenoside, Maynell, St Thomas Moore, Mansel and Monteney. In the morning we played lots of games and then in the afternoon, one team took part in a competition. Maynell came second when we thought it was actually them that would win but we won! Fox Hill came first! We are in another Cricket tournament (the finals) for different schools across the whole of Sheffield.

Athletics (Summer 1)

On Friday the 22nd April, the children in Y5 and the Y5s from Miss Smith’s class went to a Sports Hall Athletics competition at Ponds Forge Leisure Centre. When we started, the boys and girls were split up. The boys did running relays and the girls did field events. After lunch, we swapped over. The field events were: long jump, chest push, seated throw, target throw and speed bounce. The running events were: hurdles, relays, sprints and obstacle. During the day, we were split even more into three teams –  yellow, orange and pink. There were four schools taking part: Fox Hill, Monteney, Mansel   and Ann’s Grove. Ann’s Grove won but we came  SECOND!

Y6 Residential Trip (summer 1)

We went on our residential trip to Kingswood Peak Venture in Penistone from the 16th May – 18th May 2016. When we arrived, we had our lunch and played games. We checked into our dorms after a tour around the whole place. Then we got put into our groups: I and J and started our activities at 5.15pm. We did our first activity and then had dinner (Macaroni cheese or   spaghetti bolognaise). Both groups had a campfire in the evening together. We sang songs (Bananas!), toasted  marshmallows and had hot chocolate. On the first night, everyone was eating sweets in their dorms and we didn’t get that much sleep (must have been all that chocolate – oops). Day 2 started at 7.30am – yawn – where we had a variety of breakfast options on offer e.g. cooked breakfast, cereal, toast and fruit. We spent the whole morning doing activities, then at 1.20pm we had lunch, which was spicy chicken, pasta, wedges and salad. We did more activities until dinnertime. After a meal of lasagne or fish and chips, we went to our dorms to get ready for a disco. Some other   members of staff came out to visit us in the evening. We actually slept the   second night (so did the teachers). On the last day, we got our bags packed before heading off for our last 2 activities. After a final lunch (hot dogs), the coach picked us up to come back to school. All of us really enjoyed it.

Activities we did:

3G swing, archery, problem solving, outdoor laser, nightline, Jacob’s ladder, bouldering, low ropes, zip line.
