Our job is to go around the school, collecting information about everything that goes on around here!

Trips from around the school

Amazing Tudor Trip!

 

A few weeks ago, year 4 went to an old relic of Tudor architecture known as Tudor house! Let’s start with Owls class, they went into the beautiful, astonishing gardens. While Woodpeckers class learnt about Tudor tools. We saw all of the secrets left behind after      400-500 years! We saw many, many witch marks (they are things used ages ago to keep bad spirits away). The house was originally used by a merchant.

 

As we made our way into the main parts of the house, there was a banquet hall but there was a mistake in the architecture it was a bard deck, there was not one in the original design but there was in the redesign (they redesigned it because it was falling apart literally). A lovely woman told us about the history of the room instead and all the events that happened there. We saw the kitchens, they used to be underground as a basement but it was above ground for safety reasons. In the kitchen, there was a lot of food. In Tudor times rich people (this was a rich house) mostly ate meat, sadly their diet led to horrible diseases then they died L. 

 

Not long after, we found ourselves back to the astonishing gardens. After that, our outstanding, Tudor trip was over, we had an amazing time learning about Tudor history and events!

 

 

Many thanks to Tudor house staff for making this trip amazing! 

Fantastic swimming trip!

A couple weeks ago Year 5 went swimming to Bitterne Leisure Centre for 7 days. They had to change their time for break and lunch for a week. Every day they walked from school all the way to Bitterne Leisure Centre. A lot of people learnt to swim and the people that already knew got better. We had an amazing time but the walk was very tiring.
Foxes had sunshine but Hedgehogs
had rain and snow. The teachers were
very nice and did a great job. A
massive thank you to Bitterne Leisure
Centre for having us. We really enjoyed it.

Year 4 School Trip By Isadora 

Last Thursday, Year 4 went on a school trip to Riverside Park. There we were taught all about rivers and their features. I am going to explain what we did and leant there.

 When we got to school, we put hi-vis jackets on and set off. We went down a small shortcut and walked on and on and on until eventually we got to the park. A bit up the river, we sat and listened to Miss Perkins talk (though some of us were watching a man fish). After the little chat Year 4 got up and began our adventure!

Walking down the river was fun as there was lots of tiny ducklings and geese and mallard ducks (for more birds talk to my sister, Juno) but we got a bit tired. Soon it was lunchtime and we were hungry! So we sat down at woodmill and ate our glorious lunch.

After lunch we got back on our feet and kept walking. Owls and Woodpeckers found a meander and met up with Poppy Atwell’s Grandma who helped us draw a river.

Next we walked back to school, did a quiz, then we went home.

This was a really fun trip for me and hope my friends enjoyed it too.
