Years 5 & 6 Go Sailing

Year 5 & 6 spent the day at Weymouth sailing centre. Activities included sailing, indoor wall climbing, outdoor climbing, escape rooms and tunnelling. Lots of team work, trying new things and overcoming nerves!

Y6 Rivers trip

Year 6 spent a very enjoyable and informative morning at West Mills in Wareham today.  We carried out some geography fieldwork linked to our learning, last term, about rivers.  We were able to measure the width, depth and flow rate; compare the size of the sediment found on the riverbed; complete a labelled field sketch of the river and explore what freshwater invertebrates are living in the river and then assess the water quality – what a busy morning – we even managed to get a bit wet! Many thanks to the Leeson House staff for their support.

Carol Singing!

Year 6 brought great joy to the residents of York House Rest Home today when they stood outside and sang Christmas songs and carols.  The tennis players at Beach Gardens seemed to have enjoyed the singing too!

Year 6 Shire Hall trip

Year 6 visited the Shire Hall Museum in Dorchester where they found out about how we know about the past?  What are artefacts?  What kind of sources might one use?We also learned about Saxon Crime and Punishment and compared to our previous learning about the experiences of Elijah Upjohn in Victorian times. 

Year 6 visit Leeson House

Year 6 had a super day at Leeson House where they developed their mapping skills – reading bearings using 6 figure grid references – and completed some team building challenges… and what gorgeous weather!

Year 6 Topic Work

Year 6 have been using their experience at the Southampton Art gallery to produce some wire sculptures, beautiful drawings of Medusa and some re-tellings of the myth of Perseus and the Gorgon Medusa, influenced by  the set of pictures by Sir Edward Burne-Jones.
