This week’s post is all about Bridge. And no, not the Ancient Roman waterway kind (although we learned about that too!) On Wednesday, a lovely and intelligent man named Graham came back in to see us. This week, he was with Y5GE and the next time he is in he will be spending time with Mr Hiron’s class.
After a visit last year, he came to remind us all about a deck of cards and how we can use these to play game. We revised:
- 52 cards in a pack
- Four suits – diamonds and hearts (the red cards) and spades and clubs (the black cards)
- Each suit has 13 cards – A, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, J, Q and K
We practised shuffling and fanning the cards.
Each group of 4 got to play a mini-game of ‘7’ and how to make a ‘trick’ (a bridge term). The best thing? It is now a Year Five lunchtime club on a Wednesday! The next session is on Wednesday 18th October.
