As part of their Learning Quest about the Ancient Romans Tigers class visited the Roman Palace at Fishbourne.






Years 3-5 had a visit from the Crossfit trainers at the local Fareham Box. The children were put through their paces, and a number of other exercises!





Stone Age Learning Quest Celebration

The children from Tigers class produced a ‘pop up’ interactive museum for the other children and their families to visit. Visitors had a quiz to complete, learnt about the features of the different ages, develop their cave painting skills, learn how to make a stone age drawstring bag, view different models of Stonehenge and be taken on a cave tour!





Butser Farm trip

Tigers class really enjoyed their trip to Butser Farm to learn more about the Iron and Stone Ages. They enjoyed pretending to be archeologists, digging in the ground and finding: tin, copper, pottery and bones. Another popular activity was ‘clunch’, which was where the children crushed some chalk into a mix of straw, mud and water to make a ball of ‘clunch’. They then used it to finish a woven stick wall. One of the interesting things they learnt was that in the Stone Age they decorated their homes with pictures that told stories. They were also surprised to learn that Stone Age people had wooden boats.





When we were Turtles (Year 2)


Turtles class have been enjoying exploring a project called “Explorers”. From explorers in the past on ships to the modern day explorers in space. The project culminated in an Explorers Day, which included a scavenger hunt in the copse.




Portsmouth Dockyard trip

Turtles class thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Dockyards in Portsmouth to tour the HMS Victory and also see the Mary Rose as part of their “On the High Seas” project. They had the opportunity to dress up in historical costumes, practised tying knots, and learnt how sailors used to bash the bread on the side of the ship to make sure there were no weevils in the bread.





Lights Camel Action

Turtles, Leopards and Ocelots classes came together as a cast to perform a nativity show called “Light Camel Action”. It was themed like a Strictly dance show, with the characters explaining their part in the story but dancing for the judges (donkey, Innkeeper’s wife and Caesar). The children performed the humorous script very entertainingly, and sang and danced extremely well. A fun and creative way to think about the Christmas story.


Connect with the World

Turtles class have been enjoying their learning about the world and been taking advantage of technology to Skype other classes of children in other countries. They have also been finding out about famous landmarks from around the world and then used different media to create pictures of them.
