Year 5 River Trip

What a perfect day for splashing about in a river!
We found rapids by the water meadows and water alive with invertebrates at Parsonage Park.
Ask us about our mayfly larvae.  We had a visitor in from the chalk stream association.
Hopefully we will have some hatchlings to release back into the environment one day after school – watch this post for details.
Thank you to Mrs Sayers-Carter, Mrs Godden, Miss Keitley and all school staff who have helped make this an exciting and useful local trip.

Year 3: Teamwork through geography

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.

Well done!

Thank you to all those who came out in the pouring rain to hear our class raps.

Whenever you have time, please help us make sure all Year 5 children can read a clock to the minute, understand am and pm and the 24 hour clock.

Happy Christmas and see you rested and ready in the New Year.

Year 6 Science Trip

Year 6 had a wonderful fun filled, science experience at Winchester Science Centre. We explored many areas of the hands on science exhibits before taking a trip around space in the planetarium. Next, we headed to the Computer lab where we proved our fantastic coding skills to code our festive robots. Finally, more time was spent exploring the space section on the centre and discovering yet more science facts. A great learning opportunity for us, all which really brought our science learning alive!
