It is time for our lovely ducklings to return to the farm. I know the children (and teachers) will be sad to say goodbye to them but it has been lovely having them in school and in our classrooms. The children been very excited to see how they have changed and grown, even in such a short space of time.
We have enjoyed having a hockey teacher this term teaching us specialist skills. We have played lots of matches this term.
FISA FEST PERFORMANCE!
Following our trip to Hillier Gardens last week, we will be learning about mini beasts. The children really enjoyed their first experience of using MODROC to make their own minibeast models. Keep an eye out for more updates on these models in the coming weeks!
We had a lovely day today at Hillier Gardens in Romsey. We made houses for animals, looked for mini beasts and went pond dipping!
Uh-oh.... the stationary in Woodpecker class is not happy with us!
In R.E we have been learning about the concept of Light and Dark and how this relates to Christian beliefs and the Easter story. We wrote our own acrostic poems about light and dark.
Now we have learnt about pirates, we are going to start learning about sailors. To kick off this learning, we went to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard and had a great day!
We started off the day by looking around the HMS Victory. We explored all seven decks of the ship and got to see where Admiral Nelson was shot, the kitchen and where the surgeon worked.
After lunch we went to a sailors v. pirates workshop where we learnt to decode secret messages, dressed up as sailors, tied sailor's knots, learnt about real artefacts and weighed out the food for a sailor.
Miss Cullen took lots of photos of us!
Pirate Pete has asked us to find out what it is really like to be a pirate, so we've been busy learning about the life of a pirate.
In Design Technology this term we have been learning about the best way to join materials and applied this to making our own glove puppet. We began by trying out ideas on a finger puppet and evaluating our approach, and then trying again to join felt for a glove puppet. Finally we decorated our puppets to make them look like a character from our very own twisted tale.
Look at our fantastic puppets! Can you guess the character?
As part of Arts Week we have been thinking about remembrance and we all made a clay poppy.
This morning a mystery parcel arrived at school, but clearly was all not as it should be. We quickly worked out that a dragon had escaped its box and we wrote instructions for how to take care of a dragon. We then went on a dragon hunt. Look what we found!
