Year 6 trip to Fairthorne Manor
(7th-11th October 2019)
We had an amazing time away on our Residential to YMCA Fairthorne Manor and it was great to see everyone taking part in all the activities. The weather was kind to us (although we had a bit of rain when we arrived!). The children thoroughly enjoyed showing their bravery on the high ropes courses, their collaborative working on the team challenge and their respectfulness towards all the instructors. Thank you for making amazing memories and enjoy looking at the photos below.
Year 2 trip to Poole Museum
6th June 2019
We had a wonderful day at Poole Museum. Captain Gillian told us the story of how Harry Paye became Poole's most famous pirate. We saw lots of fantastic artefacts in the museum, including cannon balls, a figurehead and a ship's compass. We got the chance to climb the rigging, steer the ship and pull up the anchor. We learnt so much about what it must have been like to be a pirate,it was great fun!
YEAR 5 TRIP TO POOLE LIGHTHOUSE
Year 5 enjoyed their trip to Poole Lighthouse to watch a concert led by the BSO. They played a variety of pieces based around the theme of 'space and exploration', including the ET soundtrack. We even learnt words, actions, and body percussion to a song so that we could join in when the BSO played.
Year 3 had a fantastic visit to the Mary Rose this week. It was breathtaking to see the wreck of a real Tudor warship and the hundreds of artefacts that were found with it. We found out what life would have been like for the crew members and we even got to dress up as some of them.
YEAR 5 - BY THE SEA WEEK
Year 5 enjoyed working with Abbie to compose music linked to a video about the huge amount of plastic in our oceans. The children also immersed themselves in a range of art enrichment activities, including creating a sea creature out of recyclable materials. The week ended with the children performing their compositions to their Year 2 prayer buddies.
Year 1 trip to Winchester Science Centre
Year 1 had a fantastic day at the Science Centre in Winchester.
The children explored lots of different space experiments, they particularly enjoyed trying on the Astronaut suit and trying to pick things up in the space gloves.
We visited the planetarium and learnt lots about the different planets, stars and the Sun. There were lots of 'wow!' and 'look at that!' coming from the children.
Finally we had our own experiment to conduct and the children loved creating slime by turning a liquid into a solid. The children were beautifully behaved and we couldn't be prouder.
Year 4 Ukulele Lessons
4DB have a fantastic start to learning the ukulele. They all tried really hard to hold it correctly and strum it with the correct part of their finger. We look forward to watching (and hearing) them progress.
SOWING THE SEED CHALLENGE
'Sowing the Seed' was our Lenten challenge this year based on the parable of the Talents. Each class was given £30 and asked to think of ways to make their money grow so that they could support a charity. We raised over £5,000 for local and national charities - a big thank you to all who supported our fundraising!
Reception emergency vehicles visits
As part of our transport topic, we were very lucky to welcome three emergency vehicles to the school! The children had the opportunity to look around a police car, ambulance and a fire engine! We really enjoyed these visits and particularly loved hearing the sirens and spraying the water hose!
Reception trip to Beaulieu Motor Museum - April 2019
The children had a lovely trip to Beaulieu to visit the Musuem and also had a ride in an old car, on the monorail and on an old bus.
BRING AND SHARE SUPPER
7th November 2018
A very big thank you to everyone who brought a dish to share at our annual Bring and Share Supper - we had a wonderful evening, started off by the children in Reception in their colourful African T-shirts and their lovely dancing. The food, as always, was absolutely delicious and it was nice to welcome new families to our school community. We hope you enjoyed it!
