Our favourite part was when the lights went out and we were shown the different constellations of the stars. It looked like the sky was moving!
Thurs 14TH Feb – Y5 & Y6 Boys Football League - Roxbourne Vs Vaughan
On Thursday 14th February Roxbourne hosted Vaughan Primary for our second game of the season. Following our impressive first game which was a 4 0 victory over Avanti house, we were very excited for this game. It was a tough start against a team who were very physical and we started very slowly. After 10 minutes we went 1 0 down due to a header from their centre forward. However as the half went on, we grew into the game and managed to equalise and even take a 2 1 lead thanks to goals from Hussain and Akshan. Unfortunately, in the last minute of the half, they caught us off-guard and equalised. “At half time we were quite nervous as they were clearly a strong team. We still felt like we were in the game and had a chance of winning.” Iliyaan (6 Edinburgh).
“During the second half we felt the tension building up inside us because we knew this wasn’t going to be easy.” Soban (6 Cardiff). After a very competitive and cagey second half where chances were missed on both sides, the opposing team scored a scruffy goal which gave them a 3 - 2 lead.
“I felt that our heads dropped and we never fully recovered from that. Unfortunately it was very late in the game and we didn’t have time to recover.” Michael (6 Cardiff).
Tues 12TH Feb 2019 - Year 6 Perform Workshop

We learnt which machine to use when we want to loan or return a book and all received a receipt. The librarian explained how important it is to read books and told us about all the things we can do at a library including reading newspapers from other countries. It was fantastic trip.
Tues 5TH Feb 2019 - Reception Brighton Visit Pinner Library
Reception Brighton had an amazing time at Pinner Library. We travelled by H12 and children had an opportunity to sit on the top deck which was exciting! The ride was adventurous and educational as we talked about various things we saw on our way. The librarian read us a story which linked to our Traditional Tales unit and she was fascinated to hear the children's responses. We now look forward to travelling on the train in the Summer Term.

Thurs 17TH Jan – Y5 & Y6 Boys Football League - Roxbourne Vs Avanti House
On Thursday 17th, Roxbourne boys hosted our first game of the season against Avanti House Primary. It was a long time waiting as it has proven difficult for other schools to be available for us. However it was worth the wait as our boys won 4-0 in a fantastic performance. In the first half we dominated and kept them pinned in their own half thanks to a high line from defenders Kofi (6 Belfast) and Soban (6 Cardiff). We went into half-time 2-0 up thanks to a goal from our striker Hussain (6 Edinburgh) and an own goal which was forced through great pressure. In the second half we won but missed a penalty, however we persevered and scored a further two goals including a great long range strike from Iliyaan (6 Edinburgh). “Overall it was a terrific performance in front of a supportive crowd and a great show of sportsmanship from the boys.”
“We are really proud of our hard work. We will work hard to improve for our next game.” Soban DF (6 Cardiff)
