On Wednesday 16th May, Year 5 learnt a new skill: bell boating. We took out three bell boats and paddled from Fladbury to Evesham which was around 5 miles! All of the children worked brilliantly as a team and showed a good competitive spirit. Year 5 will be putting their new skills in to practice in June when they take part in the Evesham schools regatta. Thank you to Mrs Elmes, Mrs Sale and Mrs Scott who managed to steer the boats brilliantly!
On Friday it was maths day at Harvington. Each class took part in a workshop with the Problem Solving Company, completing different tasks such as building Lego structures and completing patterns and sequences. Back in the classroom other exciting maths based activities were going on including maths trials around school where the children had to work together to solve questions such as “How many children are in school today?” and “How many door handles are there in school?”
Thank you to the PTFA for funding the workshops for the school, the children had a fantastic day.
