Summer 2022

Class Trip to Lorton Meadows
 
On Wednesday 18th May, we were so excited to be going on our first school trip. We went with Year 2 to visit Lorton Meadows nature reserve in Weymouth. The trip supported our work in science looking at plants, trees and different animal habitats. One of the most exciting things was going on the coach. It was a huge coach to fit all of us on and some of us thought it was like being on a rollercoaster!
 
We took part in lots of activities including pond dipping, bug hunts and a nature walk looking at trees and flowers. 
 
It was such a super day out for us all. 
PE with Kingston Maurward Sports Department
 
In the Summer Term, Year 1 worked alongside students from Kingston Maurward Sports Department. They taught the pupils various skills in games, including throwing, catching, running and jumping. Both pupils and students loved the experience and the link between the school and the college will continue in future years.
Art - The Ancient Egyptians
 
In the Summer Term, we looked at Egyptian wall art paintings called reliefs. Artists carved abstract reliefs into tomb walls or temples. Year 1 created their own abstract reliefs on clay to represent themselves.
