Update from Year 5’s First Residential Trip

Year 5 set off on Monday morning full of excitement for their first residential trip. They travelled by coach down to the PGL centre at Osmington Bay, stopping off for a picnic lunch at Corfe Castle on the way. As the coach drove through the gates of the PGL centre there were gasps of amazement at the glorious site of all the activities stretched out over the hillside leading down to the sea.

On the evening of Saturday 11th May, the rain clouds parted and the sun shone through for a fantastic evening of fun at the Weston Green School Summer Party. Hidden within the heart of Hampton Court Palace’s grounds, guests were led a mile through the deer lined driveway to the Golf Club, our venue.
 
The EYFS department recently held a parents information evening on “outdoor play” and “behaviour”. The workshop provided parents with the opportunity to learn about the different learning experiences which children have when they access the outdoor environment.

KS2 Learn Through Fun History Workshops

Year 4 pupils have enjoyed working on a unit of work entitled Journeys in their Art lessons. As a starting point, the pupils spent some time discussing journeys that they make each week, noting details of what they remember passing on the way to these familiar places. They then researched how journeys and landscapes can be visually represented in the art work from different cultures.
 
Years 3 and 4 enjoyed taking part in their recent history workshops. The pupils in Year 3 learned about the Tudors and people who lived during Tudor times, whilst Year 4 learned more about Ancient Greek people and their culture.

Message from Mrs Skivington
    It has been an unusual week in school without our most senior pupils who are enjoying a degree of sunshine down in Dorset. It is obvious they are enjoying the most wonderful time from a number of photos sent back to the office by Mrs. Hawkins.  It is suggested parents of these pupils organise a quiet weekend as we anticipate the return of happy but exhausted children this afternoon!
 
At the same time pupils in Year 3 and 4 will be playing the first cricket match of the season against pupils from Denmead School – thanks to Mrs. Morrod for offering to supervise the match teas.
 
On Monday (20th) we have our rearranged e-safety day in school for the pupils which is followed by a parents workshop at 6 p.m. 
 
Wednesday June 5th is World Environment Day and in conjuction with Brookwood Catering our assemblies that week will detail what the day means, how the catering team propose to mark it with the Brookwood policy of “Planet Matters” and how the pupils can be involved.
 
On Wednesday afternoon (22nd) we have this term’s instrumental concert with invited pupils from KS1 and KS2 showing what they have learned in their individual weekly music lessons.
 
Half term ends (already?) with the annual mini marathon on Friday which this year is raising funds for Mind and Winston’s Wish. The little ones in EYFS will run around the field starting at 9.15 and KS1 pupils will participate at 2.30 p.m. Please do come and support them – it is one of the highlights of the annual calendar. Thanks go to the Parents Association for providing bottles of water at this event. 
 
Key Stage 2 pupils will not participate this year but will demonstrate their endurance running in the 1500 metres on Sports Day.
 
Enjoy the half term break when it comes!
