For their Laudato Si project this term, year 3 wrote non-chronological reports after learning all about the seahorses from Julia at The National Trust. We learnt about their habitat, diet, features and why they are an endangered species. Julia also informed us how The National Trust are aiming to protect and support these seahorses by planting more seagrass at low tide to sustain their habitat.
We were very lucky to be visited by a dancer from the Northern Ballet who gave workshops for years 2, 3 and 4. It was hard to capture the grace and beauty of the St Mary’s dancers, but Mrs White had a go…
Horse and Pony club is a new club that has started this term for years 3 and 4. This week we designed and built show jumps during our lunch time club. After school, we were extremely lucky to have two special visitors!
Year 3, 4 and 5 enjoyed a show by the Watoto Children’s Choir at Emmanuel Baptist Church.
Too cold for birdwatching? Too windy for birdwatching? Too wet for birdwatching? No! Old-school hardcore birdwatching with years 3 & 5. Thanks again to Birds of Poole Harbour for organizing this super trip. See you next year!
The girls of the maths club made a brilliant job of shopping, writing menus, taking orders and giving change. They raised over £50 for Brother John and our partner school in Uganda. Thank you to Mrs Gadston and Miss Meteau for organising the cafe, and to Mrs Nash for the scones.
Thank you to Mrs Buckle for arranging the concert for years 2 & 3, and to the wonderful secondary school musicians who performed. We loved the music and really enjoyed having a go at playing the instruments afterwards.
Once again, years 3 & 4 were lucky enough to spend a morning on the bird boat, cruising a very still Poole Harbour. The trip was organized through Birds of Poole Harbour, who pay for everything and provide binoculars and expert guides/birders.
Here is a list of what we saw:
- little egret
- great crested grebe
- red-breasted merganser
- golden eye
- bar-tailed godwit
- and 2 seals
Well done to our athletes from years 3 & 4 for their great result at the inter-primary competition held at The Purbeck School.
