Year 5’s Voyage to
the Mary Rose

Year 5 have been learning about the Mary Rose, which rests just one hour away, so a trip south to the Historic Dock in Portsmouth was imperative. Pupils in Year 5 were not disappointed when they arrived. First, they visited the Education Centre, where they learnt how explorers and sailors sailed before satellite navigation. What did any of us do before satellite navigation?!

The children in Kindergarten have settled in happily into their new environment and routines. They enjoy a varied week with: dancing and moving to music; singing songs; learning French with Mrs. Pinhey; and PE and ball skills with Mr. Dowson. In Philosophy, Reception read the book, On a Beam of Light, a Story of Albert Einstein by Jennifer Berne. In the story, Albert talked about the things that made him happy. The children then discussed the things that made them happy.
 
Year 2 enjoyed a tasty science lesson this week when they looked at a variety of foods, sorted them into the five food groups and then explained why they are important to help them grow and stay healthy. The pupils participated in this science lesson with enthusiasm and interest and were eager to try all the foods. They enjoyed tasting yogurt, blueberries, Kit Kat, chicken and potato salad during the session.

This week, the School Council have been joined by two new members, Luc and Evie from 3M. Candidates each prepared a speech for their peers, explaining why they believe they should be elected. The Council met to welcome its new members and to discuss its plans for the future. They also had the opportunity to tell the inspectors what they think of their school!

 
Congratulations to all Year 4 pupils who achieved outstanding results in their English Speaking Board Examination. Last term, Year 4 pupils were entered for the English Speaking Board Examination. The English Speaking Board (ESB) is a National Awarding Body which provides accredited qualifications in a variety of Spoken English assessment programmes.

Message from the Office
    It has been another busy start to the new academic year at Weston Green School and our new pupils, and staff, have settled well into the routines of the school day.  
 
The arrival procedure at WGS is running very smoothly and the little Reception pupils have quickly adapted to saying goodbye to you at the gate. Thank you to those of you using the stop and drop system and please remember that cars should turn left on leaving the turning circle to avoid unnecessary congestion. Thank you.
 
Three weeks into the new term and Year 5 have already undertaken an exciting visit to The Mary Rose Museum and Reception and KS1 are looking forward to their trips to Garsons’ Farm and the Weald and Downland Museum. 
 
The Autumn Term Diary Dates and Events have been emailed to all Parents and you will shortly be receiving the schedule for Parent Interviews on the 8th and 9th October.
