Greek Day!

Today, year 6 children had a fantastic time during Greek Day. They prepared and tasted traditional Greek food; made their own mythological beasts out of clay and enjoyed a fantastic drama workshop learning lots of facts on the Ancient Greeks. Below are just a few pictures, showing the fantastic time we had!
























A Cold and Muddy Cross Country Race

Running All the Way!

Yesterday, after school, four members of year 5 took on a rather muddy and cold cross country race. Arriving at Wavell School, the children were greeted by a typically freezing British day but this did not put the children off. After a quick warm up and discussion of the route the three boys, who were representing our school took to the course, pacing themselves well. With some stiff competition, all the boys finished in fantastic places and showed great determination when running the whole track. 

Next up was the girls, both of which again showed amazing perseverance and although the weather proved a challenge the fairly flat route was on their side and they manged to finish the race in no time. 

Well done to Ella Bento, Chloe Purvis, Taio Odmire, Alfie Ralls and Ellis Wells. I am already looking forward to the next race in March!

Iron Age Day in Year 3

Iron Age Day in Year 3!


Year 3 had a fantastic day taking part in the Iron Age Day workshop on Friday.


It was great to see all the pupils of Year 3 arriving in school dressed as if they really were living in the Iron Age.




The morning was spent learning all about the Iron Age from Matt who had kindly brought in lots of artefacts for us to all have a look at!


Then the afternoon was spent making our very own shields and spear tips as well as taking part in warrior training where we learnt how to use spears or swords just like a real Iron Age warrior.


I think it's fair to say that everybody had a fantastic day and it helped us to enjoy our topic even more.


''My favourite part was when we had to pass artefacts along and we were allowed to touch them!'' Alyssa, 3H


''I loved making the shields because we go to put lots of different Iron Age designs on them!" Hollie, 3H


"My favourite part was sword training! I learnt how to defeat my dad when I got home!"


Take a look at some of our photographs from the day...

Selborne

Last Friday, year 6 travelled to Selborne to experience rivers at hand. We had so much fun carrying out experiments to find out the speed of the river, the heights at different parts (caused by erosion, transportation and deposition) and we also enjoyed a duck race! Year 6 learnt about why people settle near a river and the advantages and disadvantages of living near a river. The children were beautifully behaved and made Year 6 teachers extremely proud once again. Well done Year 6!

Take a look at some of our photos and see if you can find the tree saying hi to everyone!
