Bikeability

 

The children in Year 5 took an active part in Bikeability. They had to complete various assessments to show that they were competent riders before they were allowed to progress to riding on the road. Once on the roads, they learnt how to position their bikes correctly and how to signal safely to tell other road users what their intentions were. All the children passed all the assessments, and proudly received a badge and certificate at the Celebration Assembly.

The children soon learn that they needed to use the back of the hand to check for heat as they approached a closed door. They were all able to demonstrate the "Stop, Drop and Roll" technique. Year 5 and 6 also discussed road safety and the laws relating to using high back booster seats.

Daily Mile 

 

We have reintroduced the Daily Mile to the children. Dependent on the weather, the children usually run 7 laps of the field during the afternoon breaktime. This week, we have timed the children to see how long it took them to run the mile. We will do the same after October half to see if individual fitness levels have improved.

The Lunchtime Library - September 2021


To encourage the love and joy of reading, we have introduced The Lunchtime Library which takes place every Tuesday and Friday lunchtime.
The library is set up outside in the playground, where children can borrow a book to share with a friend or read quietly by themselves. The older children, and members of staff, read stories to our younger children who are just starting out on their reading journey. 
As you can see, the children are really enjoying using the library and we have had a very successful first week of being open!

Leavers Lunch - 20th July 2021

 

The year 6 children sat together with staff to eat a lovely lunch provided by our cook. We had the slide show of photos running, and it was great to reminisce with the children about their time at Saint Williams. 

The year 6 children enjoyed a trip to the lakes as their treat trip. They worked as a team to complete the course, as one of the boys said, "I couldn't have completed the last part without my friends."

Saint William's Ice Cream Parlour - Treat Trip 2021

All the children have been earning dojo points throughout the year. The winners were meant to be visiting a local ice cream parlour, unfortunately, due to covid, this had to be adapted. We set up our own ice cream parlour at school for the children to make their own. It was enjoyed by all! 

 

Well done to all the children that were in the top 20 scorers.
