‘How was Robinwood?’ and ‘Preston North End visit Year 4’ (Reporter’s Club)

This week in reporter’s club, Year 6 have been reporting on their Robinwood trip, while Year 4 have been reporting on their visits from Preston North End!

Robinwood (by Albie T and Isaac H)

Robin Wood was a big hit with year 6, fun, games, teamwork and NO SCHOOL. We started off  with food (many peoples highlight), which is very nice.

The first activity was called ‘The Night’s Quest’ an activity that involved teamwork, brains and the hardest part of all padlocks. Once you had the code they were still impossible to open.

After this was the giant swing which was a favourite among many (for those who were brave enough to venture on). Higher and higher you went. Up and up and up and then, ZOOM! You were sent flying. It was extremely excitable.

Then we ventured into a dungeon and saved a ghost from eternal suffering by completing various tasks. This tested our wits, common sense and again our padlock using skills.

After that we tested our skills in the climbing wall, trying out our teamwork and (for some) our bravery. Although the climber may have been the easiest job.

Then the crate stacking worked our balance and our nerves. In this activity everyone was involved, whether it was passing forward crates, belaying the stackers or being up there yourself. Legs shook and towers collapsed. People thought they were going to die, good job our belayers were concentrating!

Night line was a task of skill, teamwork and being blindfolded whilst being attacked by squirrels. I will say no more for the benefit of the year fives.

The caving was the creepiest of the activities, the dummy, Bob was headless, yes headless and some of the other groups had to save him from dying but I don’t see how it can’t be dead already. First of all it’s made of plastic ad second of all if it was real he wouldn’t be able to breathe.

The canoeing was probably the worst activity but it wasn’t Robin Wood’s fault the weather froze us.

Finally to say goodbye to Robin Wood we took a go down the huge zipwire.

Robin Wood was great.

 

Preston North End visit Year 4

When Chris came round from P.N.E we did some table activities  like pass the bean bag and we needed to say different fruit and vegetables. Every Monday, Chris comes round and teaches us activities by Millie and Emma.

We went outside and did some sport , long distance , some sprinting , We threw balls up in air . We jumped over cradles . After that we went inside and said fruits.

Boys’ Football

The school’s football team has finally been revealed in a football tournament against other schools in Preston. Taylor Winter and Albie Taylor play at the back occasionally being brought off for Charlie Carlisle dropping back from midfield. Luca Furnell- Gill playing in the centre of the park with Luke Thompson and King Fletcher up front. The keeper was Luke Parkinson. ]

Our first match in the group stage was a combfortable win of 6-0. Our next match in this stage of the competition was won 7-0 and the penultimate match 3-0 . Thee final match for this stage ensured we got an easier team for the knockout round but we were against Fulwood and Cadley, this team had beaten all the other teams in the group too but we set of scoring three goals but then one wonder goal from them and one bad mistake from the whole of our team but we ended up winning 3-2. In the knockout round we won 7-0 and the team in the quarter 3-0. Then the semis we won 2-0 and finally it was the final and the team we were playing was Fulwood and Cadley, the team we beat in the group stage 3-2. And with a great start from them we were two nill down we pushed and tried to find an equaliser and as Luca was ready to shoot an easy shot, he had to score and then the honker went and the match ended, losing one nill.

2nd place a great start for the football team but it seems the teachers are undecided with some of these players not being chosen for the next match. Although the top four teams are now being moved on to the next round of the competition against teams in Chorley and Leyland. So fingers crossed we can win this next tournament and bring home gold.

Girls’ Football

Last week on the 4th October 2017, Mr Martland and Mrs Knight took 17 girls to Preston Grass hoppers. We played an 8 a side friendly football match against St Joseph’s. They were a really good team but we drew 0-0. We played one full match split in 4.

Year 6 Safer Cycling

On Monday and Tuesday we came to school in our own clothes if we were doing cycling so we could learn how to safely ride on the road and not get ran over! For those who did do this training they all learnt how to do a U-turn ,how to overtake a parked car ,how to safely turn into a side road (a side road), how to stop and know where to stop and then we did all of this training on Abington road on the tricky T-junctions.  Our instructor was extremely happy with us about our riding so we know how to ride on a road! But still be careful I really hurt my arm cycling!

Year Four Dazzle in Harvest Festival Performance! (Reporters’ Club)

 Year 4 did Miss Slater and Miss Small proud by putting on amazing show last Friday….Year 4 have been reporting on all that went on!

On Friday the 6 of October the year fours performed an amazing play. We face-timed three different countries to see how they celebrate harvest.

We face timed  America and found out that in America they celebrait thanks giving. They pray and give thanks to God for all the things that they are thankfull for.  Roast turkey and pumpkin pie are favourite dishes on that day.

We face timed  Africa and found out that in Africa  they sing and dance👯💃🏼. They were masks when they dance and each dance tells a story .  In Africa the yams are the first crops to be harvested.  Yams are a bit like sweet potato and are really tasty mashed. People offer yams to the gods before giving them out to the rest of the village. Some of the year four children performed a traditional dance.

We face timed Germany and found out that in Germany they have Oktoberfest to celebrait the end of the rainy season.  They harvest grapes and enjoy them as a healthy treat.  Many grapes are made into grape wine because it is the easiest thing to turn grapes into.

The year fours sung we are the world by Michael Jackson.  The whole of the school sung harvest samba and Autum days. The year two qoir sung  thank you Lord. The year five and six qoir sung only one world.

Caption Alex from the Salvation Army came to watch our play.  After the play he came and every about were are donations of were going to go. He also said that our play was very good.

Mr Nash came and blessed the food and the year two and year five bibles by saying a prair.

At the end there were three prairs and there was also a blessing. When all the other year groups had left the church. The parents were aloud to come and take pictures of their children in there coustumes.

Hi, On Friday Year 4 performed there harvest around the world. So we practiced and practised before the day for about an hour each day.do it. People brought food in for Captain Alex, a Salvation Army worker to take to them. It happened on the 6th of October 2017. They face timed three different countries including; America, with wierd and wonderful accents, Africa, with a cool and funky dance and Germany with a grape joke!!! There were lots of donations such as: Cans, Buiscits, Pasta, Bread and (e.c.t). The year 2 choir sang and so did the Year 5 and 6 choir. Year 4 sang We Are The World. Then Every body sang Autumn Days at the begging of the performance. Then the school sang The Harvest Samba with a funky tune. The Year 4s performed a BEAUTIFUL play. The Year 4 play included Africans, Americans, Germans, Donation Centre Workers and a moody, old and wet Jacob but he is still generous with his donations though. They visited America first were they were having a dinner party. Also at Africa they did an amazing dance as they talked about yams :D. Finally they visited Germany were they have a joke, drinks, costumes and wonder-filling things to discover. They then ended there journey with a trip to deliver the food to the Salvation Army. George, Owen, Leon, Harvey, Jay and Finn end with prayers as Autumn does a blessing. Before they sang we are the world some brave soloists sang there part but even before that some hand chimeras hand chimed!! It was absolutely amazing and every body loved the performance and all got a raffle ticket and all the actors were nervous but still did it amazingly! Sadly Millie was sick so could not do her blessing with Autumn so Autumn had to do the blessing in the performance. Every body did amazing and nobody forgot there lines at all but some people were quit but only because they were nervous but even if they were quite they were all still amazing, Africans wore black and a colourful bit of fabric attached to there mask, Americans wore a party outfit, Germans wore a colourful top, leggings or jeans, colourful braces and a funky coloured, feathery hat, Prayer readers were there school uniforms and Donation Centre Workers wore leggings or jeans and their P.E top. But when we were in a lesson of R.E I found a website that had a paragraph  exactly the same as a part of the script… Should we arrest Miss Slater and Miss Small for plagerism or not…?

Before the actual performance all the Year 4s were worryng about making any mistake and were EVEN nervous about performing in front of the school but that’s not TOO bad. Every body loved doing it but was still worried and there were three people who did act but didn’t go on stage who were, Kaylon, William and Ruby. I loved my part and was happy with it. I loved the fact that Eve told a marvellous joke “But many grapes are made into a HEALTHY liquid treat isn’t that right adults,” Every body :”CHEERS”

Aimee B 4S

On Friday the 6th of October all of year four worked on a outstanding harvest play performance.   We hope you enjoyed it. We face timed 3 different countries Africa,America and Germany.  It was very fun.  We had some very funny jokes.  Make sure you  aren’t loud when people are speaking hope you like our  songs .  There are people who do prayers and a blessing.  Autumn and Millie did the blessing.  Harvey, Owen, Finn, Leon and George do the prayers.

The Africans did an exiting dance so we hope you like our dance by the Africans. There are some pop up people that you might not even see. The  Americans celebrate harvest by thanksgiving .  If you have a prayer you will be told to put it at the back of the church and you can keep the  baby with  you so you don’t have to keep it in a small space beacause people might be walking up and down there so that’s just in case. Grace did her amazing signature dance move .

Football, Hockey, Cycling and Fencing! (Reporters’ Club Week 2)

In Reporters’ Club, there has been lots to report on with the sport in school!

 

Cycling

Last week on Tuesday last week me, 7 other people and Mr Woolatt had two teams. The competition was at Fulwood Acadmey and we were competing against 14 teams. We did bmx riding , mountain biking and skills. I won the bmx race. We think that the people writing the scores wrote them wrong because we won most of the challenges!!! What do you think?

Maisie 5A

Last week on Tuesday I went to Fulwood Academy with 7 other people and Mr. Woollatt my teacher.

Fencing

Well done to the St Andrews fencing team on winning our first ever fencing match on Friday at ashbridge! as a team(Harry, Daniel and Harry L) we decided to nominated Daniel as our team captain because he is a very good fencer, probably because his cousin is a GB fencer! I Harry Haworth won 2/3 of my matches my first two matches 5-2 but I lost quite badly on my third match against this little boy in year three called Brody. On the last match it was Daniel against this tall blonde girl it was the first person to 45 points she was winning 42-40 but then Daniel went really fast and got 4 points for us but then she got two more points , and then it was soooooooo tense but then out of nowhere Daniel got one point and we were so happy! And that is how we won our first fencing match.

Hockey

On Tuesday the 26th of September the St.Andrews hockey team took home a gold! This awesome event was actually taken at the one and only Broughton high school there were two schools (P.S. one team dropped out!) As our school team approached the high school they were extremely nervous since we had never taken home a gold medal and trophy before. As we came into the astero field we could see the other school, Sherwood standing firmly to try to win this awesome prize but little did they know they were going home empty handed since we had been training with a hockey pro and it all ended up to this the nerves started to get to us but we fought hard and came home with our first gold hockey!!! We came home with a trophy and a smile on our face!!

Thomas and Ben 6A

On Tuesday 26th of September St Andrews year 6 hockey team took home gold once again! Children from Year 6 (including me) travelled to Broughton high school hoping to win the hockey league as we have never won it before. The week before that we had already won our two matches so we were on to the next level. Unfortunately one school had dropped out so we only had to play Sherwood to take home gold. Finally the game began, we were off to a good start but our passes kept getting intercepted and whenever we had the ball we were tackled and soon as we knew the game was over and the score was 0-0 so we had to go onto extra time. After another 10 minutes of hockey the score was 1-1 so penalties it was, ending in us winning!

Football Friendlies

On the 7th of September, the first match of the year for St Andrews kicked off. A friendly against St Joseph’s, a team one league below us but the first third (we were playing in thirds instead of halves) didn’t kick off the best as neither team scored a goal. But after a few subs St Andrews were of the blocks, leaving the other team for dust as the final result was a
4-0 win to us.

On the 15th of September the second friendly to decide the team started. Against another team bellow us this wasn’t as combfortable as the first third began, a good start a few goals for us but then… in the second third two goals for their team found the back of the net 4-2 they were catching. The third third we set of with a goal but they followed back with another. The final result was 5-3 to St Andrews.

On the 22nd of September, the final match was against our rivals Queens Drive. This match was combfortable though we thrashed our arch rivals 7-3 with a wonder goal from Preston Academy player Luca Furnell- Gill from the half way line.

The team is yet to be decided.

Young Un’s Workshop and Fencing Competitions! (Reporters’ Club Week 1)

In the 1st Reporters’ Club of the year, boys from Year 6 have been writing about fencing and a recent visit about ‘British Values’!

Young Un’s Workshop (British Values)

James, Michael and Dave, also known as the Young Un’s, came to our school to do a singing and history workshop . We travelled through time to 1518 when we experienced cramping up onto a ship and then travelled forward in time to the peasants revolt where peasants wanted to be equal to the rich and royal. They marched up to London and gathered a group of 36,000 peasants along the way. When they got there they demanded to speak to the king about being equal so the king cunningly agreed but when they triumphantly marched back the king sent an army to kill everyone. VERY EVIL!!!

So they taught us all of this through songs and acting then we made a rap battle from the peasants VS the Royals.

Jasper, Finlay and Thomas 6A

Fencing Matches

This Friday ,Friday 22nd September, the first ever fencing match will be taking place at the unknown Ashbridge Primary School.
The people from the best school ever, St Andrews, that are taking part are: Harry Haworth 6A, Harry Lancaster 6S and Daniel Bourne 6S. I , Harry Haworth have been doing fencing for three years at the school club and each year I used a different sword.
I might even start doing fencing outside of school. Fencing is a sport where two people stand parallel about 5 metres apart and they both are wearing a mask and armour and they are armed with a blunt sword. if you would like more information about fencing you could look on you tube or watch the Olympics.

KS2 Sports Day, KS2 Sports Festival and ‘Where’s Johnny James?’…..KS2 Reporters Club News

This week, children from Year 5 have reported about the Junior Sports Day, their ‘Safer Cycling’ work, the Junior Sports Festival and the ‘Where’s Johnny James’ theatre production that the Juniors watched on Friday the 30th of June……

Junior Sports Day

On the eventful sports day,we went to Uclan sports arena. Our class started off with the team sac races and we all did well but individually thought. The reds and blues were doing extremely well but overall we all did well. Next we did the triple jump which I thought I was really bad at which was true but I still tried as much as I could. Eventually it turned out the yellows were the winning(which was the team I was in!)so I put in as much effort as I could and we carried on the exciting day. After that we had the long jump where whoever did the farthest jump wins into the sandpit. The blues were doing very well and I thought they were going to win until the reds started to catch up to then in the scores. Then we did the far throw so we carried on and the reds and blues were winning at that event until Mr. Martland came and read out the scores overall and the blues were winning by just a few points.

The rampaging reds glory is gone with a two year run for the brilliant blues. The yellows are dropping down to nothingness even more than usual (no offence to yellows because they are the best). Great greens moving up to second after a surprising last place for them last year.

Blues were in the lead before the races (mostly due to the unfair sack race where the bottom of the sack was ripped). Reds were clinging on to second place the greens a miniature amount of points away and the yellows obviously about a million points behind as usual. The yellows year 6’s thrashed the others at the 400m run, he blues obviously won all the sack races, the reds were phenomanel at the 100m sprint and the greens were all rounders at everything.

After the relays greens had won millions in the infants and the blues and yellows won the juniors. Then the results came in and:

Fourth: yellows

Third: reds

Second: greens

First: blues
Albie and Isaac H 5S

On Friday the 23/6/17 a lot of children (around about 99) took part in this sporty day, competing against other schools, playing a variety of sports EG: hockey, tag rugby and football. This took place at Uclan sports arena where an activity was always going on. After a tiring day of sports the results finally came in. St Andrews (us) came 2nd in hockey and 3rd in tag rugby. Mr Martland was very proud of us all for doing so well and showing that our school is the best (OBVIOUSLY).

Year 5 Safer Cycling

On Monday and Tuesday 5W went to safer cycling at Ashton high school. We had so much fun, it was brilliant! What I learnt when I went safer cycling was to never ride with your brakes not working because I did a race and went so fast I sped into the railing and ended up nearly breaking my ribs (at least I came first)!
At the end of Tuesday we were practising on a fake road drawn with chalk! A police man came in and tried to help us with safer cycling everyone kept asking questions about what he has done in the past! When it was the end of the day he spoke to us about everything and to always wear our helmet so we don’t end up in hospital or even worse get brain damage! He told us to always wear fluorescent clothing so we don’t get hit by a car because they cant see us!
Taylor 5W

On Monday and Tuesday 5w went Ashton high school to learn some safety tips for when we are riding on the road when we are older We leant how to put our bike on the road and get on it safely. We learnt how to slow down safely and also how to indicate properly from minor side road to main road and main road to minor road. We did that several times to make sure we knew how to do it properly. At break we got to play football and the girls got to play net ball. We did a lot of other activities after break so the teachers were sure that we knew how to ride safely without getting hurt.
Louie 5W

Where’s Johnny James?

On Friday, we had three people that came into our school and taught us about how to be safe online and in the real world. The two contestants were called Phoebe and Tom,the judge was called Mr FlipFlop who was the leader of the show, SAY NO OR SAY NOTHING!The two contestants then competed on how well they new the online world and the real world.But there definitely was a winner………TOM!!!It was highly clear,Tom got ten out of ten,and phoebe got zero,not the hero.And that was the end of say no or say nothing!
Mariam 5S

We had three people come into school to put on a gameshow for us,the two contstants, Phoebe and Tom,competed to see who would be more safe out and about and online. In the gameshow (run by Mr Flipflop) had a clear winner …….. TOM. Whereas Pheobe didn’t approve of this until she realised how dangerous the internet can really be.

This week, children from Year 5 and Year 6 have reported about the Evening of Music and some of the Year 5s have shared their favourite parts of their Hothersall Lodge school trip…..

 

 

 

 

 

An Evening of Music

 

The St Andrews Evening of Music, which occurred on Thursday the 18th of May 2017, started with a bang as the 30 children who performed in the Sing Together choir set us off singing ‘Don’t be Anything Less’ followed by ‘This is Our World’. After that the Music Evening continued with John Bailey’s 18 guitarists playing at first ‘Heroes’ by David Bowie followed by ‘Little by Little’ and ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’, ‘Sunshine of Your Love’ (Stan and Shree) and ‘Turn Turn Turn’ (Shree). Then Bella and Maisie played their violin to the song ‘Fiddle Time Joggers’. The violin theme continued by Charlotte and Kistian playing ‘Scarbourgh fair’. After that Mrs Grealis’ recorder group, which was matched by Edward Nash’s ‘Rocky’ theme tune played on the trumpet which was followed by Thomas Wren and Jo Collinson also on the trumpet. – Albert T

At the music evening there were many different instruments: guitar, violin, drums, keyboard and trumpet to name a few. Also 3 choirs performed, first of all the music festival, then the outstanding sing together choir.  After all of the amazing instrumental talent, to close off the show we had the beautiful y5 y6 choir. – Lucy and Claudia

ST Andrews put on a show for all of us to kick back and relax and watch.  To start us off, the sing together choir sang three great songs to open the evening of music.  Next, were John Bailey’s guitars  with at least 16 people performing( the stage was literally full ).  First we played little by little , then we played heroes by David Bowie.  We also played Rinestone Cowboy. Shree and Stanley played  ‘Sunshine of your love’ and finally Shree did a solo of ‘turn, turn ,turn’.  Later on in the show I played  a melody of songs and asked if the audience knew the songs. – Louie S

On Thursday last week we had a music evening:  Lots of people performed. I performed in the choir.  It was amazing we sang sing and open you eyes.  Some people played on guitars ,violin,recoders,trumpet,trombone,saxophone,piano and keyboard.  It was amazing when the staff choir sang: Living on a Prayer.  It was so funny but so amazing.  Louie was very brave and played on the guitar by his self.  Everybody was surprised how amazing it was. Even I was that somebody can do so brilliant in our school.  – Oliwia L

 

Year 5’s memories of Hothersall Lodge!

What a great day we all had full of joy ,happiness and lots of fun .  Keep on reading and you will see what 5s and 5w did at Hothersall lodge. First we got into groups and we each did different things.  The first thing I did was going climbing ! But before we did that, we had to get our gear on us.  The gear we had were helmets on and we were already ready for the climbing to begin . First we got into smaller groups (I was with all my best friends ) ! The lovely workers there got out some rubber ducks and in our groups we had to compete against the other groups to see who could get the most ducks in time to win the game.  In conclusion the other team won.  Then we went to climb up a big tree.  After that we went to jump into a river.  It was so cold when I jumped in I couldn’t swim I felt like I had froze thank you.  – Saffron K

What a amazing time I’ve had , jumping in freezing cold water , caving , canoeing , team building , climbing , zip – wiring and so much more.  First of all we went climbing and tried to ring the bell at the top of a 10 foot tree. Next we went to the lake to do canoeing (lots of people fell out of the boats). Once we had done that we then jumped in and had to kiss the water (that’s what the eskimoes did) aswell as putting our heads in the water.Then we had a great time zip – wiring.  Sian H

One Tuesday in March we went to a place called Hothersall Lodge where we did lots of things such as:

Canoeing, zip wiring, climbing and caving!

Also some of us jumped in freezing water after canoeing which made Mr Stamp shiver. In the canoeing we did some games where we had to do a race and I won!!!

After the canoeing we did some team challenges where we had to transport a golf ball across a tennis court without touching it. As well as that we tried to do a handstand in the icy water.  – Sasha P

 

Quiz Competition

On the 22.5.17, four children from our school: George Barron, Maisie Wynn, myself, Emma and Millie Hudson took part in the Quiz club semi-finals being held at our school. We were up against Bolton-Le-Sands who were very good and unfortuntly we didn’t win.  I think that was because we didn’t practice as much as we did in the area heats. There is a tiny chance we will still get through to the finals… If we score enough points and we get second place we will get a wildcard, but I doubt that.  – Isaac W
