Today we had someone come in to show us a few Circus skills. All the children thoroughly enjoyed this experience and had the opportunity to show off some real talents.
This is part of the topic we have been doing ‘What would you find in a Circus of Marvels?’ which we have been reading a book called ‘Ned’s circus of Marvels’. The children have really enjoyed all aspects of this topic and are completing their DT/Science projects at the moment.
A quick update from us all at Stubbington…
Monday was a fantastic day with lots of team building activities. We all showed off our co-operation skills to build our fantastic shelters which we needed to protect us from the sudden ‘downpour’ of the afternoon. We also showed some great communication skills to complete our Chaingangs activities. In the evening we had the amazing opportunity to see some fantastic photographs by local wildlife photographer Dennis Bright.
Tuesday has been another great day. We started off with a trip to the beach to make rock pools, sandcastles and find some fossils. This afternoon, we have set up our mammal hotels…fingers crossed we will get to meet some fascinating creatures tomorrow.
Here are a few photos from our time so far. We look forward to sharing all our memories and experiences with everyone at school and home.
It has been lovely to see so many interested in contributing to the children’s newspaper. Here’s a Christmas special with lots of quizzes and jokes for all to enjoy.

Homework – 17th November 2017
This week in class we have been learning about our teeth and the different functions that they have. We would like you to create a poster to persuade people to look after their teeth. The best ones will be put on display!
Year 5 have been learning about King James I and the religious conflicts that occurred which led to the plotters: Robert Catsesby, Thomas Wintour, Thomas Percy and Guy Fawes also known as John Johnson attempting to blow up the House of Lords. The children have been working on their writing skills that will enable them to write a report to inform.
We enjoyed our last full day of activities yesterday with 3 groups going off-site to do raft building. Everyone had a great day, despite getting a bit wet, although some children regretted forgetting to bring dry shoes and underwear!
We have enjoyed glorious sunshine for the best part of the week, other than first thing yesterday morning but that just added to the challenge of abseiling and the trapeze. The children have been fantastic at pushing themselves to experience new activities but the exercise and fresh air are now taking their toll as lots of them had to be woken up for breakfast today. We’re out of our rooms and everything is packed ready for the journey home but not before a final morning of activities. We will be enjoying our last meal here at lunchtime and then get straight onto the coach to return home with some extremely tired children who are looking forward to catching up with their families and sharing all the amazing memories they have made over the past five days.
We have enjoyed a much more settled night after a fun packed day of activities yesterday. Everyone is eating well, let’s say a balanced diet (fruit from the dinner hall and sweets and chocolate from the shop).
The main activities from today have been Jacobs ladder and raft building. Many fears have been conquered and a few soggy items of clothing have been made ready for our return.
An evening of good food, running around and lots of laughter ahead of us…and hopefully another settled night ready for our last full day of activities.
