Two of our Year Three classes took a trip today to the Bournemouth Aviation Museum. As well as taking in a wide variety of aircraft, the children also received a wave from an active pilot taxiing at Bournemouth airport! Mighty metals indeed!
Year 5 had an out of this world WOW day today for their Stargazers topic. As well as considering whether aliens exist or not, the pupils also created their own planets…
Year 6 began their topic about the future with a Dragon’s Den inspired WOW day yesterday. The children were put into small groups and set the challenge of inventing and marketing a new product that would make a teacher’s life easier. They then had to pitch their idea to ‘The Dragons’. The winning group designed an app that would scan writing and identify spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors. Yes please!
The Year 4 WOW day for the ‘Gods and Mortals’ topic went very well on Monday with the children being immersed into the world of the Ancient Greeks. Some amazing costumes were on show, both from the adults and the children!
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.
Today’s Year 3 WOW day went extremely well. The pupils learned a lot about life in Celtic and Roman Britain, culminating in the re-enactment of a story from the period. We had an impressive range of costumes and outfits on show. One even contained the Latin translation of ‘High Expectations Lead to High Achievers’!
