Welcome to Year 5!
The Heatherlands Way
This week Yr5 got a special visit from the RSPB, we got the chance to do a bio blitz to help find some endangered wildlife species. We found out that our school has a great eco system by finding several species of insects, frogs & birds. Yr5 saw baby magpies getting fed by their mother, some fantastic frogs & many mini beasts. We all got the chance to use special equipment like bug nets, some magnificent magnifying pots & some binoculars. Written by Theo, Aggie, MJ & Mollie.
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!
Brownsea Island Trip
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!
