Year 5 visited the Apple store in Bromley on an educational field trip on Thursday 15th June 2017. During the visit we looked at how robots can be programmed using an iPad, the robots we used are called Sphero's and as you can see the children had a lot of fun exploring what they could do. After a short period of exploration, we then moved on to a set of obstacle courses, where the children had to program their Robots to traverse the course in a single try. After much testing and retesting all obstacle courses were conquered.
On Wednesday 21st June the sun was shining in the sky, ready for the children to take part in our annual Sports Afternoon. It was a particularly hot day but the children, staff and parents all persevered the rising temperatures! Children from Nursery up to Year 6 were all fantastic in their many races, including Running races, Hurdles, Throwing relays and Javelin. A personal favourite would have to be the obstacle races, where I have never seen so much determination whilst running in a tunnel and scrambling for tennis balls under the tarpaulin! It was a shame the planned marathons could not go ahead, however I could tell from all the childrens faces what a wonderful time they had had competing in the afternoon. I would like to say a very big well done to all the pupils for displaying excellent sportsmanship and teamwork. Many thanks must go to Mr McCabe for organising the event and running around picking up lost hats, shoes and hurdles! Thank you to all the staff who, without them, the event could not have gone ahead. I would also like to say a very big thank you to Mr Kang and his team for kindly supplying and running the drinks tent for the children, we all appreciated this on such a hot day!
