10 children across Years 5 and 6 got together this week to compete against 3 other local schools in a Basketball Tournament at Bonus Pastor! In the first game, they scored 3-0 against Downderry during the 1st half, but Downderry came back stronger and scored 8-0 baskets. They played against Our Lady, who won 5-2 against St. Augustine’s. However, after a quick regroup, they worked on a clear strategy and scored a whopping 11-3 against St. Winifred’s, taking St Augustine’s to the top of the leader-board, as they came 1st Place overall!!! Well done to all in Year 5 and Year 6 for playing so well as a team in representing St. Augustine’s at the competition, coming away with the winning medals and certificates!
Years 5 and 6 have once again been very active this week! This time, 15 girls braved the cold as they took part in an All-Girls’ Football Tournament at St. Dunstan’s Jubilee Football Grounds on Tuesday 26th November, against Dalmain Athletic Girls Football Club. They played extremely well and showed great resilience despite the adverse weather conditions. Well done to Year 5 &6 for working so hard in representing St. Augustine’s at the competition. They came away with 2 trophies in 3rd and 4th Place.
Well Done Girls!
Sixteen boys and girls across Years 5 and 6 competed alongside Holy Cross against St Winifred’s and St Joseph’s at this year’s Athletics Competition held at Bonus Pastor Catholic College. Also held on Tuesday of this week, the children participated in at least 2 Track and 2 Field events, including the Chest Push, Soft Javelin, Standing, Long Jump, Speed Bounce and several Relay Races. Well done to Year 5 and Year 6. The children did so well that the organisers of this event are still counting up the scores and are yet to announce the overall winners! Certificates will be given out this week, with medals to follow! Please continue to watch this space.
Years 5 and 6 have been very active this week! Eight girls braved the cold as they took part in a Football Tournament at St. Dunstan’s Jubilee Football Grounds on Tuesday 19th November, alongside four other local primary schools. They scored 1-5 against Baring; 0-2 against St Mary’s; and 0-5 against Dalmain Primary School. The girls, though disheartened, came back stronger and fought hard to draw 2-2 with Kilmorie Primary School. Well done to all for working so hard in representing St. Augustine’s at the competition. We look forward to hearing about their upcoming tournament next week Tuesday, as the entire Girls’ Football Club go on to play in yet another tournament at the same location. Fingers crossed they will return with great news and excitement! Watch this space!
The Year 6 children had a fabulous time on Wednesday 30th October, when they attended a session in the mobile classroom – Life Bus, and met their year group partner at Holy Cross. They had a chance to get to know each other, to play games and to have lunch together at the end of a truly wonderful morning.
The children enthusiastically helped Post Office engineer Tommy Flowers to build Colossus, the world’s first programmable computer. They found out how this clever technology cracked secret coded messages and learnt about codes and ciphers to understand the principles of early computing technology. During the workshop they worked as a team to reconstruct a human Colossus and reveal its vital role in the D-Day landings. The children also had a chance to ride the Mail Rail and experience a journey back in time through the original tunnels and station platforms of London’s 100-year-old postal railway.
Year 6 had a fabulous time visiting Chislehurst Caves. They greatly enjoyed the educational, yet fun experience learning about the importance of the caves during WWII and about the thousands of people who sought refuge during the aerial bombardments. Many of the children left with spooked-out faces, but they all agreed it was a worthwhile visit. The Year 6 pupils enjoyed themselves so much that they are already making plans to return with their friends and families and share the unforgettable experience.
Well done the group of year 5 and 6 children who came to competition at Bonus Pastor. The children were praised by the organizers for how well behaved they were and good sportsmanship.
As this was a team event all the children did 4 events individually and then the scores were averaged out to get a team score across track and field events.
As a team we came fourth and we are so proud of the way the children represented our school.
Well done to the girls’ and boys’ football teams that took part in the tournament last Thursday. The year 5 and 6 children who came to the tournament showed great team work and communication skills on the pitch. Both teams came in 5th place. We are proud of the way they represented our school.
The next event will be coming soon for year 5 and 6.
Well done to the year 6 children and the staff who took part today in the match. The match was well played and the rest of the school were great spectators. This is one of the traditions we have every summer term and is always enjoyable.
The score was 9-2, well done to the staff team who won.
Most of Y6 children took part of a whole week cycle training offered by Lewisham Borough the week commencing the 4th June. On the school playground they were taught about the different parts of a bicycle, steering, braking and manoeuvring around cones; mastered signalling to indicate their intention of turning left or right and practised sudden stopping using the brakes. Once they were ready the children experienced using the roads around the school, pedalling up the hill, cycling down, looking each way at T-junctions and crossing roads. The children are thankful to the instructors for their kindness and patience and cannot wait to put their acquired skills to good use.
Before half-term, Y6 had an informative, in-school pre-transition presentation offered by TFL. The aim of the visit was to assist the children with their transition to independent travel and equip them to make responsible choices on their journeys using public transport. The workshop lasted an hour and was interactive, with educational videos, images and role play to support key learning points. At the end the children had a chance to ask questions to build their confidence about becoming independent travellers in anticipation of their transition to secondary school.
As a reward for all of their hard work and effort, the Y6 children had two special, well-deserved treats at the end of SATs week. On Thursday, they had a fabulous, sunny afternoon in Beckenham Place Park, where they played football and ball games, picked some flowers and bathed in the glorious sunshine. To top this, they spent their Friday afternoon at the Dumps, climbing, running, swinging, whizzing down the zip wire and saying “hello” to the rabbit. A wonderful end to a milestone week.
It was an absolute pleasure to see their radiant and relieved smiles and to witness them spend some quality time with their friends. Well done Y6, all of your teachers are extremely proud of you!!!
Year 6 are very involved in this terms’ history topic- Life during World War II . After enjoying the story “Good Night Mr Tom” and discussing the advantages and disadvantages of being evacuated to the country side , the children created Morrison Shelters to experience life during the war. Although it was fun, the class complained that they were very squashed and cold in their shelters. They are now looking forward to their trip to Chislehurst Caves to experience life underground during the Blitz.
Year 6 were delighted to welcome back their old friend Margaret once again . The children discussed how to move on from bad things and thought about what they could do themselves to help to make their community a safer and better place. The children engaged in a mature discussion about why forgiveness is a better choice than revenge . Margaret spoke of how God will always be there for them and the morning ended with a very moving spontaneous prayer session.
Margaret wrote ” Please thank the Year 6’s, they were truly amazing.”
Congratulations to the team who went to Bonus Pastor on 23rd May. We won 7-2 in a full netball match against one other school.
The children played well, passing the ball and using the space around them. They showed great teamwork and sportsmanship.
