Cricket and Football and Boats...

Hello from Year 5! We're all feeling exhausted after our trip around Southampton today.

We had a look around two very famous sporting venues...

The Rose Bowl...

...and St Mary's Stadium.

We were also very lucky to go to the Southampton Boat Show...

...where we saw old boats and new boats and very expensive boats and got to go on the RNLI rescue boat.

And if you want to rescue people, you have to be wearing the right kit!

A great day!

Can anyone remember what RNLI stands for? Leave a comment if you can!

Up, Up and Away!

Hello Everyone!

(Mrs Vaudin here...)

I thought you might like to see a few photos of my adventure today! The staff at Oakwood bought me my balloon flight for my "big" birthday last year and I've been waiting to do it since then.

It was very warm as they blew up the balloon. (It was also about 7 o'clock in the morning because they always do balloon flights in the early morning or the early evening.)

Once I had climbed into the basket, which was quite difficult, we lifted off ...

...and we were floating over Hampshire (somewhere near Alton).

The views were amazing - here you can see the shadow of the balloon!

I wonder if anyone can leave a comment to tell me the names of the two brothers who invented the hot air balloon? Without them, I wouldn't have had a fantastic adventure!

Sand and Snow and September!

Guess what?

New Zealand is one of those countries where you could be on the sand and in the snow on the same day if you wanted!

I had a great time with the Worleys on the other side of the world, but now it's time to start looking for those tidy classrooms again!

Don't forget, you don't have to come back to school until Tuesday 4 September. (Only me and the staff will be in on Monday!)

See you soon!
