Rock Up

This morning Year 5 shone on their class visit to Rock Up, they showed not only amazing perseverance but also great team work when supporting each other! We were very proud of all the children today, their hard work even inspired the staff to join in!


We held our own Olympic event on the speed wall, bringing the competitive side out in us all! Well done the both Oscar and Isaac for tremendous speed climbing, winning in their own groups meaning they both received a voucher to return to Rock up. An amazing time of 18.02 seconds was set as record by Oscar.


When we returned to school, we considered the pros and cons of rock climbing in general and then considered the decision of the Olympic officials with allowing it in the Ancient Greek founded Olympic Games in 2020.

Great work Year 5!
