It has definitely been winter this week in school! To accompany the frosty mornings we have been working on the Winter’s Child and Snow Bears in Year R and Year 1/2. The themes have been distinctly science based in key stage 2 where the children have been learning all about forces and biomes!
We share our latest news and annoucements here…
This week, we have a wide range of activities to share with you in our blog. Year R have been getting stuck into The Gruffalo, Year 5/6 have been learning all about mass in their science lessons, Year 1/2 have been marvellous in their maths lessons and Year 1/2 have been making history in their art lessons – literally! Read on to find out more…
Our new library is officially open, thanks to children’s author and illustrator, Simon Chadwick! Elsewhere, Year R have headed back into space, Year 1/2 have been studying ‘old’ technology, Year 3/4 have been mimicking Kandinsky and Year 5/6 have been very busy, including a workshop with the fire service.
Our Year 1/2 children had a wonderful time at Beaulieu Motor Museum, including a ride on a double decker bus. The children were a credit to the school and thank you so much to all the parents and carers that were able to help out. Meanwhile, our Year 5/6 children have been debating whether the Battle of Britain was a turning point, Year 3/4 have been experimenting with bones and Year R have visited the Moon! Our Eco-Committee have also been busy tidying up our Spiritual Garden. Thank you to our green-fingered parent volunteers, too!
Our Year 3/4 children have become computer programmers! They have been writing algorithms to control their own smart home lighting system. “Alexa, can you turn the lights on please?”. Meanwhile, Year 1/2 have been exercising their maths brains with Mathletics, Year R have been studying autumn and Year 5/6 have been learning about the concept of creation in their RE lessons.
Year R have had a wonderful trip to Longdown Farm, Year 1/2 have created fantastic Rainforest Art, Year 3/4 have been doing the sack race and Year 5/6 have been learning about transitions through the story of Joseph and his Technicolour Coat. And today, all of our children met their new teachers!
