Land and Wave Adventure Club – Week 6

Land and Wave Adventure Club headed to Sandy Hills for their last session. The time has flown by!

To finish off a fantastic 6 weeks, we got to see various ways of making fires, from using batteries and wire wool to mixing potassium permanganate with glycerin!

We then built our own fire using our impressive flint and steel skills to get a spark. We got to toast some marshmallows and enjoy some delicious smores.

What a great way to end our adventure club journey! Amazing work guys!

Mystery at Magpie Manor

What a sensational performance with many many stars!
We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!

Set in the 1920s and steeped in legend and intrigue,
Magpie Manor is in a great state of disrepair and
Lord & Lady Pica must take drastic action to save their
crumbling manor house.
The clan is gathered and together with Mr Fortune the
bank manager and his bumbling assistants, they come up with
a plan to sell off the family silver.
But as the rich & famous guests arrive for the auction ball, strange things are occurring and just as the family heirloom is about to be unveiled, it has disappeared! Inspector Spectre is straight on the case, aided by none other than Agatha Christie and it seems that everyone has a motive from the servants and cheeky tradesmen to Cousin Rupert and his ambitious American fianc√©e…
But will the thief be caught and can Magpie Manor be rescued
from impending disaster?

Forest School – Session 4

Ukulele Concert

We were all thoroughly entertained by Bumblebee Class’s Ukulele Concert.
It is hard to believe that they have only been learning for nine weeks.

Well done Bumblebee Class!

New Sports Kits

Many thanks to R.B. Fontana & Sons, Dorset Water Park and 1st Call Training for sponsoring our new sports kits.

We are looking forward to wearing them when representing our school.

 

Land and Wave Adventure Club – Week 5

We headed to Swanage beach once again for a great session of Paddleboarding. The team paired up and headed off on their boards to see who could keep their balance and who would end up in the water! We then had some paddleboard races with two competitors running across all the boards placed together to see who would be victorious! Another great week! Good work guys!

 

Transition Morning

What a busy morning we have had!

The children have all had fun with their new classes and have enjoyed getting to know their new teachers.

Land and Wave – Week 4 – Paddleboarding

We had perfect conditions for some giant paddleboarding fun this week!

The children managed to all stand up at once and paddle for a journey along Swanage bay. Afterwards it was time to battle it out in full gladiator style to see who would be left standing and who would be getting wet! At the end of the session, a few club members attempted our paddle board slip and slide!

Fantastic fun!

 

Forest School – Week 3

This week we built dens and made leather bags.

Land and Wave – Week 3 – Kayaks

Land and Wave Adventure Club faced some tough conditions on Friday for their kayaking session.

We headed to Swanage Pier where the group battled the wind in order to take part in some kayaking challenges such as trying to squeeze the whole team on one kayak and seeing which team could perform the best kayak wheelie which involved the whole team sifting back in their boat to get their whole nose out of the water.

Fantastic job guys!
