Sea City Trip - posted

On Friday, Year 6 visited Sea City museum as part of their Seven Seas topic. All of the children attended a workshop about the sinking of Titanic. As part of this workshop, the children predicted whether their characters survived or died during the tragedy, experimented to find out which parts of the ship could be damaged without sinking, and handled artefacts which would have been aboard. 
The children were also guided around the museum by a member of museum staff who gave them challenges to complete and gave them the inside scoop on what really happened. The children commented that they did not know many of the facts they learnt during this tour. They also gained a new respect for the coal trimmers when they had a go themselves at shovelling coal for just 30 seconds!
Year 6 had a fantastic day and have come away excited to continue with their topic and learn even more! A big thank you from us to the staff at Sea City!

Junior Road safety Officers - posted

On Tuesday 10th October Manta Rai and Fynn Cartlidge from year 5 attended Junior Road Safety Officer training at the Hampshire Court Hotel in Basingstoke. They learnt all about road safety- why it is important as well as how it can be taught to the rest of the school. The two newly appointed JRSOs are enthusiastic to teach their peers all about staying safe as a pedestrian, cyclist and a passenger in a vehicle.
During the training there was also an opportunity to learn about sustainable travel schemes, reducing air pollution and congestion outside of our school and how to encourage more people to walk, cycle or scoot!

Marwell Zoo - posted

Last Wednesday, year Five went on to Marwell Zoo to learn and see specific rainforest creatures. Our rainforest topic has had us discovering different biomes and the creatures that live there as well as learning about endangered animals. Despite the wet weather, year Five learnt many new and interesting facts about the different creatures that inhabit the rainforest. The Zoo staff led a workshop which involved the children being able to feel and identify real animal fur and skin, understand why the rainforest is an endangered habitat and stroke cockroaches and snakes! The trip was a great success and enjoyed by all.

Book Fair - posted

Lots of children brought books this week at the Book Fair, which was a great success.  We had children and parents queuing out the door.  As you brought so many books we were able to select a large range of fiction and non fiction texts for our library. We picked some books that will fly off the shelves in the next couple of weeks. Pop and see Mrs Cutforth or Mrs Oates to find out about our new titles.

DT day

Design and Technology Day - posted

Each class took part in our special DT day. They used pneumatics, electric circuits and pulleys and gears. They all created a range of moving mechanisms. Some year groups adapted their designs and even raced their boats and bugs! All children really enjoyed the day and have started to design new mechanisms for our follow up day. During our star of the week assembly each class recognised a child who had developed their skills and showed a natural flare for design. Well done!DT day 2

James Bond Maths - posted

On Wednesday afternoon, year 6 used their maths skills to help James Bond recover some stolen jewels. To be able to do this, the year 6s had to decode a series of clues about the jewellry's location. They then had to complete a treasure hunt in order to unscramble a series of letters, before finally enlarging a map and following the clues they had so far found. Luckily, the children managed to help James Bond to return the stolen jewels! 
A big thank you to the maths staff at Alderwood who ran this event for our year 6s. They had a wonderful time becoming spies for the afternoon.
