Brilliant Barfields!

Year 6's End of Year Treat

After working extremely hard all year, the year 6 children earnt themselves their trip to Barfields this week. While 6L and half of 6K travelled to Barfields on Wednesday this week, the remaining children from 6K and the whole of 6P spent the day there today.

Luckily for the children, the British Summer finally arrived this week and the children were able to take part in all the activities with the sun shining down on them. Throughout the day, the children pushed themselves to new heights on the climbing wall, worked as a team on the low robes and team building, felt a need for speed on the quad bikes and bounced themselves tired on the areoball. 

All children had a great time taking part in the sessions, some of which they had never completed before. 

Thank you to all the parents for your support in getting the children to and from the venue, we really apprecaite your help.

Kew Gardens

On Friday 21st June, Year 3 visited the beautiful botanical gardens at Kew, London. Most began the day experiencing the magnificent Tree Top Walk which meant we could admire the spectacular views of Kew. After that, we went inside Temperate House and Palm House where we saw plants and trees from all around the world! During our workshop on pollination, the children got to use small paintbrushes to see if they could find some pollen that the bees had left. 3J's group even witnessed a bee that had 2 huge pollen sacks. It had definitely been busy that day! We all learnt about the life cycle of a plant and even identified the different types of bees who were busy working under the glorious sunshine. Well done to all of the children who were impeccably behaved. We had such a great day out learning about a range of plants!

Think Safe Event

Year 6 Learn How to be Safe in the Community

Even though it was a rather wet and rainy day, year 6 spent the morning at the annual Think Safe Event. Here, they took part in 7 different events where they learnt how to be safe in the community.

The activities tested their current knowledge and reactions, as well as informing them of what they should do in different situations. The activities included sessions with the police, the military police, south western railway and the fire brigade. The children should be coming home tonight and checking your smoke detectors work in your homes! Although some children did get try on handcuffs while we were then, we can inform you that all children were returned to school safely.

Take a look at some of our pictures below to see what we got up to.

Year 3 and 4 Hockey Tournament

Today, children from Years 3 and 4 took part in their first hockey tournament at St Michael's Junior School. Despite playing on grass, when we normally play on our 3G pitch, the children did extremely well and won one of their matches, drew one and lost one. Our first match was against Wellington where Joshua Oram and Vinny Rogers scored some amazing goals! The final score was 4-1. Then we played St Michael's Junior School. Unfortunately, we were winning but St Michael's scored in the last minute so it ended on 1-1. Our last match was against Tower Hill where we lost in the final minute. However, it was a tough match and the children never gave up. Thanks once again to all of the parents who sat on the sidelines constantly cheering the children on.

Sri Lanka Project and Year 3 Exhibitions

This morning, Miss Cooke took 10 Year 3 pupils to All Hallows, where local schools in Aldershot learnt some new cricket skills from coaches. They thoroughly enjoyed showing off their overarm bowling as well as learning some new catching tricks!

After playing cricket, we were greeted by the high commissioner which was a great honour. He looked at all of the children's projects and asked what they had learnt about Sri Lanka and the Cricket World Cup. Every school had made such a big effort so everyone was presented with a trophy and an elephant which we have in pride of place in the school office if you would like to have a look. In addition, we have displayed some of the children's fantastic art work, travel brochures and fact files.

After school, the children had their class exhibitions where they showed off their amazing chariots which they have been busy making in D.T lessons. I hope you are extremely pleased with their masterpieces. As well as this, Year 3 showed off some of their fantastic English, Maths and Topic work where they have been writing fight scenes, learning about division and the Romans in history.

Overall, the children have been amazing this half term and have worked extremely hard, especially with their swimming. They should be receiving swimming certificates at some point this week so do their bags!
