I hope you are all well and I’m still missing everybody.
I got a little bit of feedback from my previous update on the blog. The Furnivals and Mrs Burgess both suggested doing some kind of physical active video. With Joe Wicks and Oti Mabuse doing such good live fitness and dance sessions, I thought it might be quite nice to do an Active Challenge.
With the help of a special guest, I have set six physical challenges to have a go at. You need minimal equipment or space and you can do the challenges on your own or with your family.
Please let me know how you get on in the comments on the blog below (not on the YouTube page). Did you beat your score from the previous day? Who got the best scores in your family?
This term Year 5 Peake have been participating in the Greater Manchester Engineering Challenge.We have been designing our own sustainable village which promotes mental well being. As part of the project, we have been investigating which materials are the best to build our houses out of as well as designing buildings that make our lives better.
Yesterday was the climax of the project where we took 8 children to The University of Manchester to present the work we have done this term. In the afternoon we worked with other schools to bring our designs to life by creating a 3D model.
Thank you to all the students in 5 Peake for their hard work during the challenge. I have really enjoyed working with you all again.
This week, Year 5 had a fantastic materials workshop. They found out interesting information about solids, liquids and gases. Some of the experiments they took part in were like magic tricks! What a fun learning experience!
For the second year running, our school choir has been invited to support Walkden Rotary Club by singing at the Ellesmere Centre outside Tesco. The girls had loads of fun singing some of their favourite songs and bringing a bit of Christmas cheer to the shoppers. The choir represented Peel Hall brilliantly and we were told by many passers by that the singing was beautiful. A huge thank you to all the grown ups who came down to support us.
But don’t worry if you missed us, you can catch us singing at our end of term concert on Tuesday 17th December in the Junior Hall straight after school, or hear us singing our favourite carols at our Carol Service on Thursday 19th December.
