What a busy term we have had in Year 2!

We started this term with our topic Splish Splash Splosh, and was very excited by our visit from Captain Rocky Cliff. He taught us what life was like as a pirate and how to be one! We had a great day dressing up, playing games, and finding treasure.


We also did some investigations into what materials would be best to use on a pirate ship. We got together and made some pirate ships and had great fun testing them on the water.

Our next topic was 'Be the Best', and we particularly enjoyed writing about superheros and making special superhero potions.

A big congratulations to our Year 2 Dance Challenge team as well. They worked extremely hard and it paid off, winning first place!

Spring Term in Year 1

What a busy term we have had in Year 1.

Our first topic was 'Out of this World!'.  This began with a spaceship landing in our kitchen garden.  We found out about the planets and the history of space travel.  We also had fun describing how we would look after an alien who might have landed in our school. An exciting part of our topic was going to the Winchester Science Centre.  We watched a film in the planetarium and explored the different activities.

We have also enjoyed a visit from the Hampshire Fire Service.  We learnt about how to be safe and what to do if there is a fire.  We became fire-fighters, driving the fire-engine and even putting out fires.  

This week as part of Sports Relief Week we have taken part in sports activities every day.  We have enjoyed some different sports including Zumba, going through an obstacle course and running a mile.
