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.

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.
All the fun of the fair, this morning as we proudly showed off our individual fairground rides. Inspired by our breath-taking visit to Paultons Park and the result of thinking, prototypes and good old Year 5 creativity, we had carousels, swing rides and ferris wheels of every kind.
A huge thank you to all the adults who came in to celebrate another half term’s endeavour.
What a range of responses to our Thrills and Spills home learning challenge.
As you can see, our projects were not only informative but also creative.
They came in all shapes and sizes, from powerpoints submitted by memory
