Fifth class attended a workshop in the Glucksman recently as part of the "Monsters in the Museum" exhibition. Inspired by the theme of both green campus and monsters, pupils constructed their own monsters out of recyclable material and worked on collage. Our art work is now on display in the museum. We are very proud of our efforts!
5th Class performed their Christmas play: "Christmas, why do we do that?" for the whole school on Wednesday December 20th. After weeks of collaborative practice between the 3 classes they produced an outstanding play highlighting the traditions of Christmas time. The play explored the history of Christmas Cards, Christmas Trees, Santa and the birth of Jesus while also including some humour in the form of TV advertisements for Dominos, Haribo and Star Wars among many more. The play concluded with lovely renditions of Silent Night, This Christmas and Feliz Navidad. The show was a resounding success.
Busy Times in 5th Class
While the month of December is a very busy time in schools preparing for Christmas plays, 5th class still managed time for other fun activities including art, science and projects.
Here in Fifth class we are curious about the world around us. We have been working scientifically to test certain theories. We have enjoyed observing, predicting, investigating and discussing our results.

Fifth class, under the mentor-ship of transition year students from BCS, have been learning the skills of Spike Ball. Spike Ball is similar to volley ball. It is an inclusive game and most importantly great fun! Our training will culminate in a blitz to be held in BCS in a few weeks.
