Lifeboat Station Visit.
On the 28th February Year 3 & 4 visited the lifeboat station. While there they did some sketching outside, of the sea and station. They were told information about the ILB and the AWL by some of the volunteers. There was a DVD to show the capabilities of the AWL too. While in the ILB boathouse children got to try on a lifejacket and a helmet. They all had a great time, learnt a lot and some are even considering volunteering when they are old enough.
We received a telephone call on the 3rd March, from one of the volunteers, to say how wonderful the two classes were – polite, interested and well behaved. They regularly have school visits but said Medmerry children have been the best ever!
Years 3 & 4 Swimming
Year 4 have been looking at art work depicting different types of weather. They had to choose which painting they most wanted to recreate and then choose the media they thought best represented its mood.
We have some very talented artists in Year 4!
As part of our ‘Think Green’ topic, Year 4 visited the recycling plant in Littlehampton. We looked carefully at items that could be recycled by playing a game. Then we kitted up, with hard hats, ear defenders, goggles and high visibility jackets, to go in to the recycling plant itself. It’s extremely noisy and dusty! We also got to create designs on our own recycled fabric bags. No more plastic bags for us now we know about how difficult it is to recycle them!
