Friday 20th July 2018 – Stubbington Day 3

Filed under: Whole School @ 10:27 pm

By now they are all home and tucked up in bed… and that is just the staff!

Here are today’s highlights and pictures.

The morning started with stripping our beds and making sure our suitcases were packed – and closed!

Jackalberry had to save the day in the Earthquake zone & Redwood made shelters and looked for evidence of animals in the conservation area.



Afterwards, we had lunch and said our goodbyes to the Stubbington Staff.

We would like to finish by saying how well the children behaved, showing all our school values and more over the last 3 days. They have done us proud and you all should be so proud of them!

A big thank you for your continued support this year and we wish you a happy summer! See you in September.

Filed under: DT,Year 3 @ 3:42 pm

Well done to Gingko who completed making their wooden photo frames yesterday. The children used saws to cut their wood, PVA glue to stick their frame together and then a variety of craft materials to decorate their frames. They put a picture of their fun swim in the frame to complete it! Well done, Gingko!

Thursday 19th July 2017 – Year 4 Stubbington Day 2

Filed under: Whole School @ 10:44 pm

We all slept through the night…until about 6am for some of us! Considering we weren’t in bed until 10.30ish some of us have been pretty tired today.

Today, we had an action packed day. First, we all went to the beach. We made rock pools, built sand castles and went fossil hunting.

After lunch, Jackalberry created shelters. Unfortunately, torrential rain arrived and quite a few of them got soaked! Then, they went and looked for tracks and signs of wildlife around the conservation area.

Redwood had an important mission and went out to help save people in the Earthquake zone.

Tomorrow morning, each class will do the opposite activities.

(Internet is being very slow tonight – We will get pictures uploaded ASAP – Sorry! The beach ones are below if you click on the link)

Thursday 19th June 2019 – Year 6 Fairground Rides

Filed under: DT,Year 6 @ 2:39 pm

During the last few days, in our final week at BWJS, Year 6 have been creating fairground rides.  In small groups, we designed, built and programmed our rides using the DT skills we have picked up across our time at the school and the new crumble boards Mrs Senior has recently purchased with money from FOBS.  It was a great opportunity for the children to develop their collaborative and problem solving skills in a practical context.

Wednesday 18th July 2018 – Year 4 Stubbington Day 1

Filed under: Whole School @ 10:27 pm

So after a little hiccup this morning, we (finally) arrived at Stubbington! We dropped our bags off and went out for a game in the conservation area called Stubbington Fox. It was great fun! Then time for lunch – lots of yummy food. We had a tour, found our rooms and had some free time before dinner. Some of us spent some money in the Tuck Shop too. Dinner time – meaning even more food! We watched a wildlife presentation after dinner and saw some amazing photographs. Tonight was our turn to go to the hide. We were lucky enough to see some wildlife – badgers and foxes.

Time for bed so we are ready for more adventures tomorrow.

Thursday 12th July 2018 – Year 3 trip to Florida

To complete our Geography unit which focuses on learning about Florida, Year 3 experienced the excitement of preparing to go on holiday to Florida, including the airport experience, the flight and what to expect once they had landed in Orlando. The children were able to watch various videos  to help make the experience even more real and it is safe to say that they all had a brilliant time! We even had a picnic lunch in Florida (well, the park next to the Infant school, really!) A great experience for everyone and one we hope they’ll remember for years to come!
