Year 5 have been finding out about Jackson Pollock as part of our art based theme - Action Jackson! We got very messy splattering paint, using our hands to smudge and smear paint and generally expressing ourselves with great enthusiasm!
Parents/carers of Year 5 children,
On Monday 12th March, your child will be visiting Branksome Library.
Comet Class - leaving school to walk up at 9.30 am and leaving the library at 11am
Meteor Class - leaving school to walk up at 10.45 am and leaving the library at 12.15
Galaxy Class - leaving school to walk up at 12.30 pm and leaving the library at 2pm
During this visit, the children will listen to stories and poems as well as being shown how the library works and finding out what it has to offer them if they visit again. They will also be able to borrow a library book on a class library card which they will be able to take back to school to enjoy. Please give your permission for your child
to walk to Branksome library by completing and returning the slip. Any help with walking the children to and from the library would be appreciated.
Year 5 are wrapping up in January and are off out on the high seas! Well, through the harbour and out towards Brownsea Island... Half of Year 5 were lucky enough to go out with Birds of Poole Harbour last Friday, and the other half of the year group will go out next Friday. We got to go out on a boat, have a guided tour of the harbour and Brownsea Lagoon, and spotted so many amazing birds and even a common seal! The volunteers gave us all binoculars so we could see avocets, a goldeneye, cormorants and herring gulls up close. A truly special experience, and everyone learnt a lot!
