As part of their WW2 topic, year 6 visited Fort Henry to find out the important part Studland played during the Second World War. We were pleased to welcome Chris Copson from the Keep Museum who gave us a guided tour and then shared a range of artefacts with us.
The evacuees form Year 6 arrived safely at Swanage Railway Station. They then enjoyed hospitality at the British Restaurant that re-opened (for one day only) at Swanage United Reformed Church. Whilst they were there they enjoyed a lunch of baked beans, mash and corned beef rissoles followed by jam tart and custard! Music was provided by Spike’s gramophone. They were joined for lunch by some visitors who shared their wartime memories of Swanage. The day finished with a good old sing song!
Many thanks to the URC for hosting the event.
On a very cold evening, our year 6 children, the school choir and instrumentalists, the Purbeck Arts Choir and a full congregation in excellent voice joined for a joyous celebration of the Christmas story.
A really joyous occasion today as the whole school (including reception for the first time this year) celebrated Mass with the theme of Preparing for Christmas. All classes had written prayers to share. We wish all our families and friends blessings at this great feast of the year.
These prayers were written jointly by the children in each of our classes as we prepare for Christmas 2017.
Live streaming is increasingly becoming one of the most popular online activities for children and young people. Apps such as Musical.ly, Live.me, Periscope and YouNow are all soaring in popularity, which has seen other well established apps such as Facebook adding live streaming functions.
