During Summer 1 we had the incredible experience of having 2 trips in 1 week! We compared our local environment (Shirley) to the New Forest and Lepe Beach, we looked at the physical and human features at both of these locations. We also were fortunate to see so much wildlife and were so lucky with the weather too!

We designed and wrote some persuasive leaflets to tell people why they should come and visit Hampshire and, for the first time, our parents were able to come into the classroom to see them on display! What a delight!

On the last Friday of term the whole school celebrated the Platinum Jubilee – we had cakes, sandwiches, bouncy castles and games galore! We made crowns, designed dresses and learned some drumming. 


Pupil Premium Provision:

Key vocabulary word mats to be sent home.
