Making Picture Frames!

In 3C we did some Design and Technology and made our own picture frames. We measured the size of our artwork and used saws to cut the wood to the correct shape. Miss Cooper helped us stick it together using a glue gun. We practised using new skills and had lots of fun! 








Rocksteady!

The children have had a fabulous time working with Dan from Rocksteady this term. I was lucky enough to hear some of the bands practising and they were great!

If you are interested in signing your child up for Rocksteady lessons next term have a look at their website https://www.rocksteadymusicschool.com/

Shirley Warren Wins Gold!

Every year, a national charity called the Youth Sports Trust assess how well schools are doing in regards to Physical Education, Physical Activity and School Sports. This includes everything we do at Shirley Warren in our PE lessons, in our clubs and with all the competitions we participate in.

This year, we have been awarded the GOLD AWARD! Well done everyone!

4D's Amazing Attendance Trip!

We were so happy to receive the best attendance award! We were lucky enough to visit The Queen Elizabeth Country Park and carry out some exciting activities. Our day started by walking up a very steep hill and partaking in a blindfolded nature walk. That was fun! We then arrived at our destination for bug hunting in which we were sucking up bugs into bug cups. We even caught a beetle! After our bug hunting, we designed some nature art using forest materials. We are all extremely creative! After that, we enjoyed a spot of lunch in the sun shine and a run around. The afternoon consisted of den building also using forest materials. We were told they had to be completely waterproof but sadly, none of them were so we all got soaked!!!


Well done 4D for earning this reward. You all deserved it.

Green Council at Aldermoor Farm


Today, all the members of Green Council were excited to go to a farm which is very local to us called Aldermoor Farm.

Farmer Richard welcomed us to the farm.

In this photo we are looking at the safety notice on the back of the sign so that we know all of the hazards of a working farm.

Can you think of any hazards there might be on a working farm?


Richard gave us a tour of his farm.

One thing he really wanted us to see was his "savings account".  Here is is in the second photo.

Can you guess what it is?

It really smelt disgusting as you can see from some of our faces!
 
Richard gave everyone some old spinach plants to feed the chickens with.  We found out that the chickens ate them very quickly!


 Our next job was to plant some flowers in front of the runner beans.  After they were planted we had to water them and also water the lettuces and other vegetables which the sprinkler couldn't reach.

We found out that Aldermoor Farm has a natural spring and Richard has made lots of hoses and clever ways to make the water effective throughout the whole of the farm.
Finally, we got to feed the chickens seed. We found out that Aldermoor Farm is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9am to 5pm.  There is a shop and if you want to feed the chickens, you can pay 20p for a bag of feed.  It would be lovely to see many families from Shirley Warren visit the farm and get involved. 

French Day in Year 3!

Bonjour! Year 3 have had lots of fun dressing up and learning a new language on French Day. We wore our best red, blue and white outfits and practised speaking and writing in French. We learnt how to say the different parts of the body in French and then labelled a picture of Bart Simpson. Au revoir!

French Day Fun in RB!

We have had a lovely morning in RB enjoying a variety of French activities. We have sung some French songs learning simple greetings and numbers. We have also used information books to find out new things about France. We especially liked the Eiffel Tower and were excited to find out that it lights up at night time!

Y4 at the Guildhall

Year 4 pupils took part in a city-wide music concert. We went to the Guildhall in Southampton and played together with lots of other schools from the city. The met the composer of the piece and followed our conductor carefully.

We had an amazing time and felt very proud of ourselves!


RB learning about Specialness and Special Things

In Reception we have been learning about the concept 'Specialness' and theme 'Special Things'.
We sorted what was special and what was not special e.g. party shoes and normal shoes, a tree and a christmas tree. We then looked at what was special to Jewish people and why e.g. a Synagogue and The Torah. We made our own Torah covers called a 'Mantle' with special symbols important to us.

Year 1 Soccer Aid

On Soccer Aid 2019 Year 1 had lots of fun wearing their sports clothes and using algorithms to instruct their friends from one part of the playground to another.
We discussed and thought about all the children around the world who do not have access to a playground and how everyone has a right to play.
