Filed under: History,Maths,Whole School,Year 4 @ 2:49 pm

This week we’ve been using Roman numerals in Maths. To begin, we learnt about the use of the Roman numerals in our everyday lives and how we use an Arabic number system. Next, we became code breakers working about how to convert numbers into Roman numerals. Finally, we completed some exciting activities and took part in a game of Roman numerals bingo!

Tuesday 16th July 2019 – Year 6 Presents “Robin Hood”

Filed under: Year 6 @ 8:33 pm

Year 6 took to the stage today for their first full performance of Robin Hood. After a dress rehearsal for Years 2, 3 and 4 yesterday, they played to a hall full of parents and Year 5 children today. The children were in fine voice, some minor technical hitches from the day before were ironed out, and the performance was a tremendous success.

We’re looking forward to our final performance tomorrow evening to a near-sold-out crowd.

Tuesday 16th July 2019 – Year 6 at Partyman

Filed under: Whole School @ 8:19 pm

Year 6 celebrated the end of the year – and, indeed, the end of their four years at BWJS – with an evening at Partyman in Eastleigh last night. They may be about to move on to secondary school, but it turns out they’re not yet too grown up for a couple of hours of soft play! A great time was had by all.

Friday 21st June – Wear Yellow Day

Filed under: Whole School @ 8:03 pm

Sorry for the delay in this post!

I would like to thank all the pupils and staff who supported us by wearing yellow & donating money to CFK and CF Trust. It was brilliant to come into assembly to see so many of you all supporting Evie and these two charities. She is lucky to be part of such a brilliant school community already! The donation total for the Wear Yellow Day was an incredible £233. FOBS, generously, gave us a donation from Ice Cream Friday of £64. Thank you to Mr Campbell for allowing this non-school uniform day, the pupils, parents and staff for supporting it and FOBS for your kind donation.

The money has been added to our other fundraising events and will be split equally between CFK and CF Trust. In total, we raised £2381! Thank you for being part of it!

Mrs Mars & family

Over the last two days Year 4 have continued learning about electricity in Science. After building circuits, different materials were tested to determine if they were insulators or conducts. Next the children made different switches to investigate which could complete a circuit the quickest. These activities led into our Design and Technology lessons. Using 2D Primary the children designed a net of their light boxes. Finally, from they cut out and created a Stubbington themed lightbox from their computer generated designs.

Monday 8th July 2019 – Year 4 – Guided Reading

Filed under: English,Year 4 @ 8:06 am

As part of our latest guided reading book – The Tunnel, we have looked at how the two main character’s feelings have changed over the story. Last week, we used a conscience alley to decide whether a character should enter the book’s tunnel. After listening to everyone’s view, ‘Rose’ decided to enter the tunnel and discover what is waiting on the other side of the tunnel! The year group have enjoyed the story and wonderful illustrations of the book.
