On Monday 18th June 2018, me and fellow FJS students went to a Kwik Cricket tournament in Fawley. We all loved it and I personally thought it was awesome. We played 160 minutes altogether and we were left exhausted. We won 2 out of 4 games, which is good for not having much experience.
From Year 6 Connor, Sam, Max, Will and Ethan played. From Year 4, Sid and Hector played.
A big thank you to Ms Mays and Mr Harris for taking us. 🙂
This week, Year 5 found a geographical reason to do just that. In past years, we have worried about muddy banks, sudden water surges and rain. Our biggest concerns this year were heat stroke and whether there would be much water in our local streams. On the coolest day in a long while, we set off to measure widths, depths and speeds.
Our two, contrasting locations were Sweatford Water Meadows (where many local people walk their dogs) and the Parsonage Park part of Sweatford Water.
Many, many thanks to the intrepid adults who accompanied us and without whom we would not be able to undertake ‘hazardous pursuits’ in our local area.
As an extra special treat Year 5 were invited to a Science session at The Burgate School. After walking across the field in the morning sun, we were greeted and the rules of the lab were explained. Protected by our safety goggles we explored chemical reactions, electricity, telescopes and the art of diffusion.
As you can see from the pictures below all children enjoyed themselves and really developed their scientific thinking through meaningful conversations. Thank you to Mrs Barratt at Burgate for some extremely fun and scientific tasks.
This week Year 3 has been using our outside spaces for learning. During Science we investigated shadows and made different shapes with our shadows. During our English lesson we worked on our proof reading skills by reading our stories to … Continue reading →
We had BIG fun at the BIG Singing Festival at St Mary’s Church on Monday this week surrounded by the wonderful banners made by our school the previous week. As part of the Fordingbridge Music and Arts Festival, our school together with other schools in the area, were invited to a singing workshop to learn new songs.
Twenty children from school gathered at the church and were taught many different songs, including lots of fun warm-up songs and African songs which sounded amazing. Susie Lamb from Salisbury Cathedral School ran the workshop and parents and spectators were able to watch them perform at the end.
Everyone enjoyed themselves. Thank you to Revd Canon Gary Philbrick for arranging this festival and to Susie Lamb for teaching such inspirational songs.
