Summer 2013

The Summer term is always a busy one and we have lots planned for Ash class including our Key Stage trip to London to see the Lion King and also our residential  trip to Swanage.  

This term Ash class will be learning about Space.

So far, we made the most of the April sunshine and learnt about the earths rotation and the sun. We drew round Evie's shadow on the hour, every hour, throughout the day to record how our shadows change.

In the afternoon we worked outside and made our own sundials. We had to make sure all the angles were measured correctly with a protractor otherwise the time wouldn't be right. We were amazed that they actually worked and that we could read the correct time on them.

Residential visit to Swanage

Yr 4 and 5 enjoyed 4 days in Swanage for their residential visit. We braved the weather and enjoyed every minute of it. We did a so much over the 4 days including, archery, abseilng, canoeing, kayaking, air rifle shooting, a visit to Swanage Lifeboat station, crabbing on the pier, fossiling at Kimmerage Bay, a trip on the steam train up to Corfe, a visit to Corfe Model Village, Corfe Castle and the Tank Museum at Bovington. We also enjoyed a cream tea! We all came home extremely exhausted!

Spring Term Topic 2013

This term Ash class have been learning about our Oceans. We have been reading Kensuke's Kingdom, written by Michael Morpurgo.

We pretended the class were abandoned in a forest and had to survive for the day. They were given a range of tasks to carry out in small groups. Each task provided them with an opportunity to win something for their group (a bit like I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!). We even had a blindfolded food tasting task!

We had to build shelters big enough for the whole group to fit inside. We had jacket potato with ham and cheese for lunch and then pancakes, all cooked on the open fire.


Major Twitchalot and Little Miss Wotsit

 Ash class have adopted 2 rabbits to have in the class. The children are responible for their care. Mr Williams, the vet, came into school to talk to us about caring for our rabbits and examined them to make sure they were healthy.

We held an Easter Cake Sale to raise money to look after them.


Autumn Term 2012

This term we have been learning about the Aztecs and also Chocolate.

The children enjoyed a school visit to Le Salon Du Chocolat in Chichester where they had an interesting talk about the history of chocolate, where cocoa trees are grown and how they are harvested and made into chocolate and finally a brilliant demonstration of how to make chocolates. They did have lots of opportunities to taste different chocolates!

After the workshop, they walked into Chichester to undertake some market research to help them with their own designs for their chocolates. They children enjoyed asking members of the public their questionnaires.
