Our Year Three pupils had a wonderful time at Leeson House this week. The weather was very kind and allowed all activities to go extremely smoothly. Many thanks to all of the staff who gave up their time to allow for this magical experience for our pupils.
Year 4 had a WOW day for their new ‘Misty Mountain Sierra’ topic yesterday. Alongside hearing from a special visitor who had experienced Everest first hand, the children completed an art project and orienteered their way around the school using a scaled map.
Year 6 had glorious weather for their trip to Hengistbury Head today. They investigated coastal defences and features, as well as plotting the geography of the local Bournemouth area, considering wildlife and habitats within the park and learning some additional history relating to their evolution topic.
Year 5 held their WOW day today for their ‘Hola Mexico!’ topic. As well as a Latin American inspired ‘Mathsico’ session, the pupils created their own decorative skull, in keeping with the ‘Day of the dead’ celebrations, and sampled a range of Mexican food. Many thanks to Mrs Powell for her hard work in preparing the feast of enchiladas, tortillas, salsa, guacamole and churros.
Our children are really excited about their new curriculum topics. We can’t wait to see their knowledge and understanding grow within these areas this half term!

Year 4 – ‘Gods and Mortals’ (History focus)

The Year Four WOW day went really well today. The children ventured into the Science Dome, created plasticine volcano replicas and investigated real life volcanoes.
