Today Mandela yet again worked hard for team TSM! In the morning the Y6s helped with Key Stage One's Sports Day helping it to run smoothly. Everyone did such a great job. Well done!
After a great picnic lunch on the field with our families, in the afternoon it was Mandela's turn as they took part in Key Stage Two's Sports Day. There were lots of winners, but most importantly lots of great sportsmen and women cheering each other on. A special mention goes to Archie L and Molly who won the Y6 awards for good conduct and sportsmanship.
Today was an important day in Mandela Class, as well as receiving our SATs results we had our ESB exam. We have all been working hard on this exam since the Spring Term. The exam itself is decided into 3 parts.
1. A 4 min presentation on a subject of our choice. We are encouraged to ask questions about other peoples presentations and answer questions about our own. Many of us based our presentations on our Independent Study focus for this year.
2. Recite a poem of merit of by heart, explaining why we chose it. Mr Harvey helped us work on this.
3. Read 2 pages (selected by the examiner) from 10 pages we have selected from a book of our choice. Explaining why we have chosen the book and what has happened so far.
All of this has ben hard work, especially when we are busy learning our lines for our production of Aladdin (which is next week!!) Despite the difficulty of the task, everyone passed with Merit or Merit Plus :-)
