MinPin Houses

Welcome back! I hope that you had a fantastic Easter holiday! Today we kicked off our topic, ‘Secrets of the New Forest’ by making MinPin people from our English novel by Roald Dahl. We then made them houses in the glade enjoying the summer sun! We’ll use our houses as a stimulus for our writing this week.



Dig Dig Dig!

Happy New Year!

We spent a fantastic morning exploring our new topic of Ancient Civilisations. We mummified tomatoes and explored the job of an archaeologist through excavating choc chip cookies and searching for Egyptian artefacts in the Year R sand pit!


Violin Concert

What a lovely concert the Year 5 children performed for the school this afternoon! They have been learning to play the violin all term and performed a variety of pieces, both with and without their bows. It was fantastic to see how focussed they were whilst playing and to hear the wonderful sound they made as a group!


We hope all you fantastic, energetic, active children are having a lovely, more relaxing weekend.

We miss you all already – what an amazing experience we shared at Fairthorne!

There are so many photos that we have created an album on Flickr so that you can download and keep the pictures of you and your friends to keep forever.  Just follow the link below

There are some photos of the whole group and some of my group – Mrs Lea will add extra of just her group soon- watch this space!!

We were so thrilled that you all had a good go at everything – many of you really overcame your fears and we are so proud of you all for pushing yourselves to the limit and always encouraging each other.

We were particularly proud of you wonderfully kind, thoughtful incredible children in the way that you involved the other school in your singing.  At the time you didn’t realise how much that meant to those children – many of whom are not able to do all the fun things we take for granted – but you made their day. We were absolutely bursting with pride and the teachers of those children have asked us to thank you for your kindness.

See you next week
