A big thank you to Year 6 for a very successful year at Signhills Academy and we wish you all the best in the next step of your educational journey.
This morning teams from Signhills Academy, Waltham Leas Primary Academy and New Waltham Academy took part in an Aquathlon. The teams completed a swim followed by a run and all thoroughly enjoyed the competition. Congratulations to Signhills who won the overall team trophy.
This is the second harvest from our allotment that Year 5 have planted and grown over the year. There has been lots of strawberries which we’ve eaten once ripe. We’re just waiting for the tomatoes to ripen then it’s all hands on deck to start preparing for next year.
As part of Healthy Living Week year 5 have been learning what keeps us healthy. They have created some rainbow fruit kebabs as a fun way to eat their 5 a day.
Today, Year 6 have enjoyed a first aid workshop delivered by the British Red Cross. They learnt how to respond in different emergency situations.
Year 5 are investing where and how bacteria grows. They have swabbed different parts of the classroom and will be monitoring and recording its growth over the next few weeks.
