Friday 12th October 2018 – Year 6 Visit the Living Rainforest

To coincide with our topic work shifting focus to the rainforests, Year 6 visited the Living Rainforest near Newbury last week where we experienced the conditions of a rainforest and saw a wide range of animals and plant-life.  We had a great time out of the school building, and we were very impressed with the children’s behaviour during the day – behaviour which attracted us some very flattering comments from other visitors.

I’ll leave it up to the children of Year 6 to tell you more about the trip in the comments below…

Wednesday 10th October – Y5&6 Cross Country Competition

Filed under: Cross Country,PE,Whole School,Year 5,Year 6 @ 11:18 am

On Tuesday 9th October, 25 Y5&6 pupils competed in the South Eastleigh and Winchester Cross Country Competition at Hamble School. All of BWJS representatives are avid members of the school cross country club and for some of the pupils it was their first experience of a competitive event.

The course comprised of a 2 1/2 lap route totaling around 2km in distance. There were 4 races in total (Y5 Girls, Y5 Boys, Y6 Girls, Y6 Boys) with around 70 competitors taking part in each race. All the BWJ runners gave 100% during their race and offered ample amounts support and encouragement to others which was lovely to see. The races were cheered on by an abundance of parents who also got to enjoy the surprising October sunshine.

Well done to all of the pupils that competed – you were awesome.

A special shout out to:
Zoe N (Y5) – as she romped home in 1st place and got awarded a special runners winning medal.
Robyn C (Y6) – as she was the only runner in the Y6 girls’ race competing from our school.

Next Tuesday sees the turn of the Y3&4 pupils.

Thank you to all the parents/carers that came along to support the runners and to Mr Wiggan’s for taking some wonderful photos.

Well done to:
Grace, Becka C, Isabelle S, Zoe N & Ava B (Y5 Girls)
Finley C, Ben W, Reece H, Thomas P, Jacob V-Z, Harry H, Dylan D, Finlay T, Tyler S, Oscar K & William P-L (Y5 Boys)
Robyn C (Y6 Girls)
Arthur M, Riley F, Harvey W, Harvey S, , Harry A & Rowan G (Y6 Boys)

Wednesday 10th October – Book Reviews on website

Filed under: Whole School @ 8:42 am

Thank you very much to all the pupils (and staff!) who have completed a book review on the school’s website. We now have over 60 reviews in the year 6 section alone!

If you are looking for a new book to read, the website is a really good place to go for recommendations. Simply go to the ‘Children’ section and select ‘Read a Book Review’ where you will find a section for each year group’s published book reviews for pupils to peruse. There is also selection of book lists published by the School’s Library Service.

If you would like to write a book review, simply select the ‘Write a Book Review’ link from the same drop-down menu. Book reviews will take a few days to appear live on the website as they are checked individually.

We look forward to receiving more reviews and recommendations!

Wednesday 10th October 2018 – Year 4 – India and measurements

Filed under: Geography,Maths,Year 4 @ 7:49 am

Last week, Year 4 sampled some sights, smells and sounds of India. From a bag of Indian delights, children picked an object and discussed what they thought it might be. We had some very interesting ideas! Throughout the week, they had also been measuring and converting. Children enjoyed measuring outside objects and then converting to a different measurement.
