Remembrance Day Display

We have been absolutely blown away by the creativity and thought the children put into their Remembrance Day pieces. We have put together a display of a selection of the children’s pieces. Here are pictures of some of the children’s work and a video put together by a Year 4 child.

Thank you to everyone at home for your support with these amazing creations.

This week in Year 3, we have been continuing to learn about our Stone Age topic and have been discussing our Stone Age inventions ready to persuade the Dragons’ Den which one they should invest in.

Remembrance homework

Please find above (click the link), details of the homework for this week. It is due back earlier (on Monday 6th November) as some of the children’s work will be used in a Remembrance assembly on Tuesday morning.

Look what we have found!!!

Year 3 have found something amazing on our school premises!

After receiving a letter from the mother of the dragon egg, we are now trying to answer the question – Should dragons live in Stubbington?

We walked into Stubbington village to look for clues of our mysterious visitor, asking the public questions about Stubbington to help us to respond to the letter.

All of our learning this half term,  will be helping us to answer this question as we wait to see if our egg hatches.


We will report back soon!

A Final Blog Post from Mr T…

As you are no doubt aware, today is my last day at Anne Dale after nearly 8 years at the school, working alongside many hundreds of children who have passed through Anne Dale’s gates.

I have been so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to teach so many of the children as they have moved through the different year groups and having seen the AnneDaleBlogs grow and grow over past years, I couldn’t think of a better way to say thank you and goodbye to both children and parents from the school community.children-in-need-day

My work here at Anne Dale has been a wonderful chapter of my teaching career, filled with a great many memorable moments (famed I am sure for the many Pantomime outfits that I have arrived to work wearing!). Thank you also to the many parents and children who have spoken with me recently – I am truly humbled by your kind words. Thank you.

Wishing you all a very enjoyable Christmas break, good luck for the future,

Mr Thorns.

Year 3 Christmas Time Travelling Production!

This morning, children across the school were treated to a wonderful Christmas Image result for christmas starsproduction from Year 3 – performed with a starlight background and filled with Christmas magic. Pupils watched with interest and enthusiasm as Time Travelling Doctors made their way in search of Christmas surprises.

Children spoke their lines clearly and filled the hall with a beautiful harmony of Christmas singing. With a splattering of Christmas cracker jokes, Year 3 also enlightened children from across the year groups with a host of “laugh-o-meter” gags!

We are sure that parents are in for a real treat during their performance and will enjoy the show! Well done to Year 3 for a fantastic production!
