Listen 2 Me Christmas Concert

On Wednesday the family and friends of children in Years 2 and 4 were treated to a fantastic concert to showcase all of the songs they have learnt to play on the recorder.

They also sang some songs which help them to remember the correct hand positions when they play the recorder.

The children played a wonderful range of pieces, some were familiar to us and others were new tunes for us to enjoy.

There were even some beautiful solo performances. 

The concert ended with a brilliant rendition of Jingle Bells, played jointly by Years 2 and 4, to get us all into the Christmas spirit.  

We all left with huge smiles on our faces.

Well done to both year groups, you were all fabulous!  A huge thank you to Mrs Watling and all of the other adults involved for their hard work in helping the children to shine.

Planetarium visit

On Thursday the children in Years 1, 2, 5 and 6 were lucky enough to immerse themselves in the world of Space inside the Planetarium.

Mario told the children about how the Planetarium worked and they excitedly climbed in.

Once inside they were treated to an adventure in space looking at the International Space station as well as where to find the planets in the sky.  We were all surprised that you could see the planet Jupiter from Earth.

They then saw various films about Space and planets.  After that the children were able to hold the oldest object they would ever hold in their lives....a  4.3 million year old piece of Iron meteorite.

Christmas Service at Winchester Cathedral

The children from our VI resource provision took part in a special Christmas Service today at Winchester Cathedral. We joined other special schools from around Hampshire to sing and dance and re-tell the Christmas story. 
The children and staff had an excellent day - the children were amazing, so well behaved and joined in with all the songs!
A huge thank you to Mrs Keene for organising the trip and parts of the service and all the staff who accompanied us today.
