Science Transition at Bridgemary!

Today, those children who will be transitioning onto Bridgemary School next year had the opportunity to take part in a secondary school style Science lesson. 

The first thing the children noticed was that the classroom did not look like the classrooms at primary school and that actually it was more like a laboratory. The teacher made all of the children aware of the safety rules within the classroom before they had the chance to experiment with Bunsen Burners. The children set up, lit and used a Bunsen Burner correctly, which is a dangerous piece of equipment!

They all left feeling extremely excited about becoming scientists at secondary school.

Amazing Angelfish Class Assembly!

Today saw children from Angelfish in Year 1  perform their class assembly. The children did a fantastic performance of a singing and dancing introduction to their assembly on Africa, including actions too! Mr Moloney has also been helping Miss Pullan with the dancing and singing to “Waka Waka” by Shakira and “Roar” by Katy Perry… if you would like to listen to the Waka Waka music again, click here:

During the assembly, the children spoke about different animals from around the world, which they have been working on in class. Other children spoke about what animals eat and how they travel around. They also spoke about their trip to Marwell Zoo and the different animals that they saw there.

Well done to everyone for a fantastic assembly! Leave a comment below to let us know what you think.

Hoola Hooping Workshop!

Those who have not visited Wales, have been taking part in some offsite visits and fun activities back here in Gosport instead. Image result for globefit hoola

Today, we were visited by Hannah from Globefit-Hoola who taught us some hoola hooping tricks. We all enjoyed learning how to spin the hoops on our waists as well as our arms, which at first was a lot trickier than it looked. By the end, we were all confident hoola-hoopers and even created our own routines using tricks and moves taught to us!

“Once I got the rhythm right, I couldn’t stop. I was able to jump whilst spinning the hoop.” (Amy P)

Trip to the Submarine Museum!

Those children not going to Wales have embarked on their own adventures this week, beginning with a trip to the Submarine Museum in Gosport.

The day began with a guided tour from a real submariner of HMS Alliance – a World War 2 era submarine. The tour was very interesting and filled with amazing places to see inside the submarine, such as the control room, the engine room, the mess (relaxing area) and the loos! We had to climb and duck through the hatches, stepping over all sorts of items on the floor and exploring what life was like for people living in a submarine.
