See what Mr. McCormack and his son got up to at the Autumn Fair.

It was great to see so many Heavers Farm children (both past and present) and their parents at the Fair yesterday. I was there with my youngest son and he had a great time trying out as many rides as I could buy tickets for! Here he is driving cars, riding the rodeo bull and hidden somewhere in that huge, pink party castle truck thing (there must be a better name for that…).

Here is Mr. Phillips (Onyx Class teacher) at the Autumn Fair yesterday. I hope you all had a great time.

It was lovely to see you all. A massive thanks to Cleo Douglas and the PTA who organised and ran the fair. It was a fantastic event and it was good to see such a good turnout.

Fun at the fair!.

Games on 5P’s blog

I have just been looking the class blogs and thought I’d share something that Mr. Penrose (the class teacher for Selsdon’s 5P class) put on his blog. He has posted an evolution game on his Games Page that he set up on 5P’s blog here.

… he then linked this to a board game he made for the homework for the Year 5 classes to use this week.

What do you think?

Topic – Out Of Africa – 19/9/1 

5P… I am being blown away by your homework, so much so that I think we’re going to need a bigger ‘homework of the week’ wall

This week we’re basing your homework around our topic ‘Out Of Africa’. Having played my ‘Human Race’ game… I want you to create your own evolution board game! It could be in the style of the one I made or you could invent an entirely new one! Here are some ideas:

  • An evolution quiz game – Move around the board and answer questions correctly to win part of a skeleton. When you have a full skeleton you win! Bones could be drawn on small bits of paper or even made out of play dough.
  • Sapiens vs Neanderthals  – Divide the countries, or continents, up between players evenly. The aim is to conquer each other’s land to take over the world with your species! Choose a country to invade, roll the dice against each other, whoever rolls highest out of 3 rolls wins… you keep attacking until you lose a roll, then it’s the other player’s turn.
  • (Insert your idea here!)

If you create something that works well… we can play it in ‘Golden Time’ on Friday.
