Year 3 visit to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard
On Thursday 16th October Year 3 visited Portsmouth Historic Dockyard to see what life was like in the Navy, during Nelson’s time.
We had a workshop where we learnt about punishments and signalling. We took part in activities such as designing our own emblem, handling original artefacts, tying knots, discovering what was in the galley and becoming sailors by dressing up and acting out sayings such as ‘Hold fast!’
Later we went aboard the HMS Victory and found out what it might have been like to live and work there. Mrs Edge was quite happy to demonstrate which punishments were available!
Thank you to all those who supported this event: those who baked cakes, organised the event and to those who came for a coffee and piece of cake too! £165.73 was raised for the Macmillan Cancer Charity.
Year 1 enjoyed a magical maths morning at the beach. They had fun using stones to build towers. They compared who had the tallest tower and counted the number of stones they had used.
They enjoyed being shell detectives and collecting as many shells as they could into buckets, they counted up the shells in ones and twos to find the total and talked about who had managed to collect the most.
On Friday 3rd October we shall be hosting a coffee morning in school in aid of the Macmillan Cancer Charity. This will take place in the school hall from 8.50am -10.15am. Please come along if you can and let others know too!
More details will be available from Hilary Habgood next week.
