Year 5 Kestrels had their second session of Peer Mediation trainer this afternoon.
They played some great games to make their listening and thinking skills even sharper.
The game of 1234 was great to make everyone think about how they could ensure a set person won the game by being the last person standing. Miss McClelland was impressed as she said she had never had a group that managed to get it right on the first attempt!
Well done Year 5.
The class had to think about finding out more information about each other again too.
The session was a lot of fun and they are looking forward to next weeks session.
In cricket today, Cara, Jamie and Mohammed worked really well as a team and helped each other throughout the session. For that they have all received a certificate for showing one of our behaviours for learning.
Year 5 Kestrels had their second session of cricket coaching today. They started off with a warm-up learning how to effectively carry a cricket bat whilst running, this is by carrying it and rocking it like it is a baby.
They then practised hitting a cricket ball and catching a cricket ball in their teams, rotating which role they were doing.
A game of cricket then gave the Kestrels a real chance to show off their skills! I think we are going to have some fantastic cricket players in Year 5 Kesterels!
In PSHE, Year 5 Kestrels have been discussing what it is like to agree and disagree with people.
They had various different statements to discuss and agree or disagree with in their pairs. One example was ‘Children should not watch television’. The children found it very hard to disagree with this statement but they managed to find a reason as to why they should disagree.
They then discussed how disagreeing makes you feel and how we can disagree with people without hurting their feelings. The children decided that you should talk calmly, suggest your reasons rather than telling others and respect their views whilst sharing your own.
