Congratulations to the Lacrosse Team who have been crowned the 3rd best team in the UK for the second year running! The children won four matches at the University of Hertfordshire, improving with each game, to secure a place in the Championship round of the National Finals. After an impressive victory in the quarter-finals, the team narrowly missed out on a place in the final by a 9-8 defeat after extra time. The whole team were superb ambassadors for the school and did themselves and Mrs Roberts proud!

Rugby runners-up

Well done to the ten Year 6 boys who enjoyed a rugby transition event at Wilmslow High School today.  They were taught the rules and skills needed for contact rugby before competing against other schools. A combination of fantastic teamwork, sportsmanship and skills meant they were crowned runners-up of the whole event. Congratulations to all the boys involved!

Pythagoras whizzes

This week in maths Mrs Roberts’ maths class have been looking at triangles and learning all about Pythagoras Theorem. First we drew triangles to work out the length of the hypotenuse before using the formula to calculate the length of missing sides of a triangle. A fantastic effort from everyone!

Our talented thespians…

Today the whole of Year 6 took part in short performances from a variety of Shakespeare plays at the Green Room Theatre here in Wilmslow. All the children had been allocated a scene from either Hamlet, Macbeth, The Taming of the Shrew or Othello, were tasked with exploring the significance of the scene in their given play and had to identify a key part which they would perform.

Our morning was therefore filled with the delights of murder, betrayal, arguments, murder, witchcraft, poison . . . and some more murder thrown in for good measure!

There were some stunning performances and we were all really impressed at how so many of the children had learned speeches with such complex language!

What is it, do you think, about Shakespeare’s plays that people still find so interesting nearly 400 years since his death?
