The Year 4 and 5 children were visted by an artist specialising in metalwork on 29.4.19. Nicky spent the day helping the children create beautiful metalwork flowers and butterflies, which will form part of our display for Purbeck Arts Week. We had a great time using drills, hammers and etching pens to create our pieces. Look out for our work at Rollington Barn in May
Year 4 and 5 had a brilliant time at Carey Camp in April. All 30 pupils came along and were treated to loads of outdoor activities like tunnels, low-ropes, orienteering, nature walks, archery, blind-fold trails, den building and of course a camp fire with toasted marshmallows and singing. For some pupils this was there first time away from home, for others, their first time sleeping in a tent. We had an amazing time and the Carey staff even complemented us on our impeccable manners!
A visit from the Science Dome
All the pupils got a treat in October when the Science Dome came to visit. It is a giant inflatable dome which can be used as a planetarium and teaching space. Different year groups studied different things in the dome such as Egyptians and Light and Dark. Year 4/5 have been learning about space so they got to see the planetarium and were amazed to be under the stars looking at the constellations, comparing planets and even visiting the International Space Station. We are so lucky to be able to bring topics alive in this way

Year 3 & 4 Multiskills Festival at Purbeck School on 27th September 2018.
The year 3 children loved trying out new sports, games and activities at the Year 3 & 4 Multiskills Festival at Purbeck School on 27th September 2018. The children competed against each other in a game of handball and tried volleyball for the first time with huge beach balls. They all enjoyed having a go at curling using specially designed curling stones that roll on the floor instead of sliding on ice. Finally all the children encouraged each other to improve their fitness in a multiskills activity circuit.
