Year 5’s Memorable Event for our ‘Water, Water, Everywhere’ topic has had to be rearranged for Friday, 16th December due to a clash with the school pantomime on its original date. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The memorable event will celebrate all our learning and raise funds for WaterAid, so we look forward to seeing you all.
On the 30/10/2016 the Los Angeles cheer leading squad “The Rams” came to visit year five. They showed us some dance routines with their pompoms . The music was loud and fast paced. The Rams also included year five in some of their dance routines which was so much fun. Some people in my year level even got to try on the pompoms!! The cheerleaders were doing a tour of England and regularly perform at the NFL in America. My year level felt very special because we were allowed to have a photo with the team and they even gave us their autographs. I put my photo up on my bedroom wall and it makes me smile every time I look at it because it was such a fun day.
Throughout Edmund Waller we have been learning to speak Mandarin. To show you exactly what we get up to in these lessons we have created some videos to show our work. As we know that not everyone who watches this speaks Mandarin, we have included subtitles in English so you can learn too.
At Edmund Waller, the children in Year 2 – 6 learn Mandarin in a lesson every week with Meier Lo. On the 15th July, they will be singing one of two Mandarin songs at the Broadway Theatre in Catford, as part of the Summer Concert.
You can help your child by using the lyrics that have been published below.
