On Thursday, 5L visited Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre (WOEC) as part of their Great Outdoors topic. They had a fantastic time tunnelling, orienteering and climbing. The trip has inspired the children to think about different activities and adventures they can have outdoors. With more outdoors activities planned this term, it should be a great summer in Year 5.
On Wednesday 25th March, Year 3 opened their Class Museums. This special one-off occasion was to show-case the fantastic learning Year 3 had completed on their From Stone to Steel project. For five weeks, the children have been researching and writing up their findings, creating artefacts and models and gathering knowledge. On Wednesday afternoon, the children gave guided tours to the Year 4s, their Year 6 buddies and their parents. All visitors were amazed at the level of knowledge and understanding the children had acquired in such a short time. Mrs McLeish from the South Dorset Ridgeway Project said, “It was a pleasure to experience the energy and enthusiasm in the classrooms, and to see how completely engaged the children were with the South Dorset Ridgeway.”
30 of our Year 6 choir members were very proud to take part in the Lest We Forget concert on Thursday March 19th at Bournemouth International Centre. They were part of a very large choir from schools all over Dorset, Bournemouth and Poole. The rest of Year 6 went to watch the concert and really enjoyed it. There was lots of wonderful music, singing and dancing as well as very moving film footage and stories from World War One. This was something that we certainly won’t forget. Well done and thank you to everyone who took part.
In March 2015 the Reception classes went on a walking tour of Old Wyke as part of their topic “Sticks and Bricks.” They looked for interesting buildings (there were many) old and new and took note of the buildings features such as bay windows, detached and semi-detached houses, chimneys, numbers on doors and many more things! The children also completed a secret mission to post their Mothers Day cards home!
