National Storytelling Week 2022

The children took part in lots of activities during National Storytelling Week:

World Book Day 2022

Children and adults celebrated World Book Day by dressing as book characters. There was a whole school assembly with a story parade of costumes and the children were read the story of The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore. The children were then split into groups with a mix of year groups to complete activities. They created Reading Rocks where the children decorated rocks as their favourite book character or cover. Each class also decorated their classroom door.

Science Week March 2022

Our theme for Science Week was 'Growth'. 

They also planted radishes, rocket and cress seeds.

     They also planted bulbs during their OWL session.

Holi Celebration March 2022

Holi is a Hindu celebration, observed to mark the beginning of Spring. The whole school celebrated on the school field by throwing powder paint to represent this, creating a colourful explosion. Families were invited to come and watch our colourful celebration. 

Mother's Day Breakfast March 2022

We were joined by Mums, Nans and other important ladies for breakfast.

Easter Assembly

The whole school visited Testwood Baptist Church for an Easter Assembly. The children walked really sensibly (Year R with a Year 6 buddy) both to and from the church. They listened to the Easter story and played a game of spotting the Easter bunny. Some of Year 4 shared their RE learning. The children also sang their favourite song ‘Spring Chicken.’

Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Children came to school dressed in red, white and blue. There were activities in class during the morning with each class focusing on a different decade from the Queen's reign.

Families were invited to join us for an afternoon of celebration. We had a picnic on the field followed by games and stalls. The children particularly enjoyed throwing wet sponges at the teachers! There was an ice cream van and music was provided by Mr Clark with lots of dancing. 

We also held a red, white and blue baking competition and some children decorated hats to wear to school.

Arts Week June 2022

 Lots of activities took place during Arts Week:

After studying the work of Claude Monet, Year 2 practised the ‘tache’ technique made famous in his seascapes! The children mixed colours and built up their skills by looking at different parts of Monet’s paintings through a viewfinder and recreating them. They then produced their own masterpiece inspired by what they had learned!

Year 2 also learnt a sea shanty style dance in PE, first practising the actions a sailor would do.
