Impressionist Art

Year R had a wonderful trip to Testwood Lakes so check out the photos! Also, this week, read about Year 1/2's dance festival, Year 3/4's spectacular impressionist art and Year 5/6's prep for their production 'Pirates of the Curry Bean' - which went down a storm!

Year R - Trip to Testwood Lakes

On Tuesday, Year R went on a trip to Testwood Lakes. We had a brilliant time and especially enjoyed the coach journey and our packed lunches! Highlights of the day include minibeast hunting, pond dipping and making natural art.

Year 1/2 - Dance, dance, dance

Year 1/2 really enjoyed attending a dance festival at Mountbatten. They joined other schools from the community and worked on various aspects of dance from choreography to specific dance movements. The children participated well in all of the activities on offer and represented our school beautifully. 

Year 3/4 - Impressionist Art

In Art over the last few weeks, Year 3/4 have been studying the impressionist artists Renoir and Monet.  Everyone had a chance to express their feelings about the art presented to them.  The children then sketched out a version of one of the artists’ paintings and then used oil pastels to interpret the colours in their own versions. 

Year 5/6 - Getting ready for our production

It was a busy week for the Year 6 children, many of whom visited their new secondary schools, and they are even more excited than before about beginning their new adventures. They also spent the day at the local church where they took part in team building and reflection activities. 


The Year 5s also spent time with their new classes, taking part in a range of activities to get to know each other better. 


In science, the children made board games applying their learning alongside extra research about the solar system and space. The children were incredibly creative in how they chose to show their learning: there were top trumps, board games and quizzes!


The children also completed their dress rehearsal of the play and they now cannot wait to perform it to their adults! It has been fantastic to see their inner-pirates come out!
