Year 1 DT Windmills

Making Windmills! Year 1 have been learning about windmills from the pat and present, including what purpose they had here in the UK throughout the years. We then met ‘Mr Tiddles’, a mouse who was looking to have a windmill designed and built to live in. We listened to his ‘preferences’ and then set about designing the 2D ‘nets’ which would later become the ‘structures’ and ‘turbines’. After assembling our structures we then punctured holes and began to assemble the ‘sails’ of the turbine by connecting them to the ‘axle’. Finally, it was time to test them and evaluate them!

Year 2 have been learning about life cycles and have had some caterpillars to look after. After a few weeks they turned into butterflies and today we were able to release Julie, Julia, Juliette, Julian and Julius Caesar into the wild.

YR Visit to Lepe Country Park

The children in Year R have had a fabulous day, travelling on a coach to Lepe County Park. While they were there they had a minibeast hunt in the woodland, looked at what they found under microscopes, swept nets through the long grass to find other creatures. They also had a seashore scavenger hunt and safari which included creating some beach art. After lunch the children had the opportunity to explore the sensory garden and had a play on the park. Lots of fun was had!

Year 1 DT- Designing and Creating Royal Puppets

Our process: 1. First we learned about ways to attach fabric together, such as stapling or safety pinning. We assessed the advantages and disadvantages to each and decided to use staples for our puppets. 2. We designed the puppets by labelling the parts and embellishments that will make them look like Kings or Queens. 3. Next we assembled our puppets. We used ‘templates’ to cut out our material and attached them together using staples, making sure they are ‘alligned’. 4. We then embellished our puppets by carefully selecting materials and sing our design as a guide. 5. Finally we evaluated our puppets against the design criteria and thought about how we could possibly improve them next time.

Year 1- Best. Day.Ever.

Today we celebrated the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. It was a fun-packed day to say the least! We started off by designing some decorative bunting and preparing flags to bring along to our lunch. We then had a look at our Jubilee art collection which was created by the whole school, it was VERY impressive!! In the KS2 hall we then had a go on the bouncey castles which were great fun! We then carried our lunches and flags outside to sit together as a school when who should arrive…..THE QUEEN! We couldn’t believe it! We waved our flags and sang, ‘God Save the Queen’. Our wonderful day was topped off with a dognut in class and then a disco! Phew! I think we’re all ready for half-term! Today was full of wonderful memories!

Year 2 Geography Day!

Yesterday, Year 2 spent the day learning about two locations. The first was the city of Southampton. We found out all about the city and we even conducted a traffic survey outside of school. We found that there were more vehicles during school drop off times than during the school day.

We also looked at Jinja in Uganda. We learned that it is the source of the River Nile. Jinja has many similarities to Southampton, including that they are both ports and have rivers running through them.

In the afternoon we had a very special visitor on the computer! We had a video call with a man called Baker who lives in Jinja, Uganda. He answered all of our questions and told us all about what it is like to live there.

We had a great day!

Year 1 Church Visit

On Tuesday, Year 1 went to visit Lordshill Church to learn about why water is 'precious' to Chrisitans and how it is used in Baptism. We were lucky enough to see baby Bella, the doll, being Baptised and to learn about how the special water is blessed and then put into the font on the altar. We then put a little bit of water onto Bella's head and helped to perform a real Baptism! We also had a look at a gown that a baby may wear during their baptism and also the candle that the church gives each baby to keep. We then listened to the story of how Jesus was Baptised by John the Baptist in the River Jordan!
