Last Tuesday, Year 3 enjoyed an interesting and inspirational visit from local Fordingbridge artist Anthony Dobson. The children were shown a variety of styles of painting and presented with a variety of artists, with some of our children recognising artists form pieces of art they have at home.
Our favourite paintings were of cows and had been painted by Anthony. The children were also able to present their own seascape paintings and have taken ideas in order to add depth and texture to their future works of art.
It was a very valuable learning experience for all and has helped to inspire us to carry on creating some great pieces of art.
Our topic this term in Year 3 is La Plage – the beach. We introduced the Jurassic coast and explored the physical features of different beaches, including Swanage, Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. We also discussed why we go on holiday in this country and abroad.
It was really good to see the children working as a team, especially as this term, the Learning Dimension we are focussing on is Teamwork. They were able to work together, listen well and complete the task on time.
After a term of practising the ukulele, Year 3 did a fantastic performance this week in front of their parents and Year 4. They sang a total of 5 songs, which included Yellow Submarine and Mamma Mia using various chords. They’ve come a long way since February and with only 5 lessons too!

On Thursday 21st March 2019 Ms Mays picked a Year 5 football team (along with two Year 6) and they were Hector, Cody, Harry G, Sid, Freddie, Noah D, Marley, James, Aden, Ethan and Timmy. They successfully got a gold medal. They lost the initial league but then they came back with a victory in the lower tier. In the final they won 2-0 with Hector scoring the first and Harry G the second against Ringwood B. At the presentation they proudly walked up to receive their prize. Then they went home to show their carers their success!
