Year 1 trip to Blue Reef Aquarium

On Tuesday 6th March Year 1 went on a school trip to the Blue Reef Aquarium in Portsmouth. We had a great time looking at all the different species of fish and we even got to touch a Starfish, Crab and Spider Crab – they felt very hard and bumpy!

We had a great day and now we look forward to putting all that we have learnt into our very own non-fiction book about sea creatures.

We're going on a Bear Hunt

On Tuesday 20th February our Year R children travelled down to Central Hall in St. Mary’s, Southampton to listen to and watch an orchestral performance of We’re Going On A Bear Hunt.

We had a great time listening to all the different instruments of the orchestra including flutes, oboes, drums, cellos, violins and trombones and a tuba.

We also heard a medley of ‘Frozen’ songs and the ‘Pirates Of The Carribean’ theme.

The best part was definitely the Bear Hunt as it got very exciting when the bear made an actual appearance!

Year R will be using instruments at school over the next three weeks to create their own musical versions of the story.

Year R - Wish you were here

During our ‘Wish You Were Here’ topic the children in Year R dressed as the colours from a flag or in their National Dress. It was lovely seeing the children talking so confidently about the clothes they were wearing and the history behind their clothes.  One child wore a beautiful outfit from Poland that belonged to her Mum when she was little!  One parent kindly came in dressed in traditional Indian clothes. She talked to the children about the clothes that Indian women wear and then explained that the outfit her son was wearing is what boys in India would wear to celebrations and parties.

The children have been learning about food from around the world. In the morning they made pizzas and then tasted foods from around the world.  Some children then chose to complete a survey using tallies to find out the classes favourite and least favourite food.  Scones and jam came out as the favourite and feta cheese the least favourite.

Please see the gallery for more photos.
