Easter Egg Hunt

Finally the rain stopped and we got outside to to our Easter Egg Hunt. The children had to find 3 pairs of words that made 3 different compound words. It was rather tricky, but great fun. As a prize they have a tube of smarties and it would be lovely if they could fill up the empty tube with spare change for the PTA and bring it back after the holiday. 

Have a wonderful Easter.

Chestnut's Lent Challenge

 

During Lent Chestnut have been trying to do good deeds and care for people they meet. Every time we completed a challenge we could colour in part of a Easter Egg. They have done really well and it has been lovely to see them been more caring and loving towards each other.

Sailors' Society Sponsored Morning and Mum's Afternoon

 

Wow what another busy day we have had. We all looked amazing in our sea based costumes and then had lots of fun playing games and having races for our sponsored event. In the afternoon we enjoyed decorating biscuits for our Mums, painting, playing and making beautiful flowers. Thank you to all the grown ups who joined us.

 

Little Red Riding Hood

 

We have started thinking about the Little Red Riding Hood story. The children worked in groups and took a section of the story to act out. Enjoy one of our films below.

 

Our next challenge is to make up a new story by changing some parts and characters.

Measuring Magic Makes Magnificent Scones

21st January 2019

 

Today we made scones we had to follow the recipe very carefully and measure out all the

ingredients. It was tricky because the measuring scales and the measuring jug did not have all the numbers written on the scale so we had to work out where we had to measure to.


After they were cooked we got to eat them. They were yummy.

 

Superhero Day

We had a super day dressed up as some of our favourite heroes. We had a parade and showed off our super powers.

Advent Wreaths

We have been learning about how candle flames are used by Christians during Advent. We spoke about the importance of the evergreen wreath symbolising God's everlasting love, the four candles that are lit every Sunday leading up to Christmas Day symbolising  Hope, Peace, Joy and Love and the white middle candle which is lit on Christmas Day symbolising Jesus, the Light of The World.

We then made our own Advent wreaths and spoke about the importance of each part.

Creative Christmas Art Day

We had great fun decorating our class and making lots of amazing creations. We enjoyed choosing all sorts of different materials to make our decorations.

Children In Need 2018

We had lots of fun today dressed in our spotty clothes. There was lots of imagination put into some homemade outfits. Thank you everyone for supporting this event.

The Great Fire of London in Marchwood

 

As part of our Great Fire of London topic the children made houses out of cereal boxes to build a street just like one you would have seen in London in 1666.

Mr. Rule and Miss. Thomas set our houses up on the field. They looked amazing. Then Mr. Rule started a fire in one of the houses. We watched and it was surprising how quickly the fire spread from house to house. It was quite a windy day and Oscar's house, which was on the end, fell over. We noticed how that made in a break in the fire so it didn't get burnt. We soon smelt of fire and could see the ash floating in the air, we could begin to imagine what it would have been like in London at that time.
