Lighthouse Trip to Broadwater Park 2018 (7 images)

Painshill Park September 2018 (6 images)

Lighthouse trip to Painshill Park, September 2018 Our Lighthouse children in Years 1, 2 and 3 enjoyed a visit to Painshill Park to visit the Crystal Grotto to learn about caves as part of our topic work linked to Stone Age times. We had glorious autumn weather for our exploration of the beautiful park grounds and the grotto.

Lighthouse trip to Broadwater Park, October 2018 Our Lighthouse children in Years N, 1 and 2 had an action packed morning visit to Broadwater Park to learn about a park environment as part of our literacy work linked to Percy Park Keeper texts. We used I Spy checklists to observe features of the park, made bark rubbings and collected samples of leaves and chestnuts for our nature tray. It was exciting to observe squirrels hiding chestnuts for the spring. We explored a fallen tree and enjoyed a visit to the play area before returning to school.

Year 3 trip to Haslemere Museum (8 images)

On Thursday 15th March, Year 3 visited Haslemere museum. The museum has a real life mummy from Ancient Egypt and the children were able to witness this! We learnt about the mummification process- it's pretty gory, the brain was removed with a long hook and fed to the cats! We loved this fact. In the afternoon, we mummified our own dolls and took these home to show our families. We are basing our literacy work around Ancient Egypt for the rest of the term as we've learnt so much from this trip.

Mrs Walsh's House and Allotment (17 images)

Our youngest children in the Lighthouse had an action packed morning visiting Mrs Walsh’s home and allotment. We used the opportunity to learn vocabulary linked to our topic on Homes. We visited different rooms to name them and we talked about the furniture. We were excited to meet Mrs Walshs’s pets and to collect some eggs from her hens. At the allotment we observed a well in action which we have read about in a Percy the Park Keeper text. We helped to pick cucumbers, yellow courgettes and rhubarb, this will help us understand what ‘harvest’ is . We all tried to lift up an enormous pumpkin but it was too heavy! Instead we chose an orange squash which we will use to make some soup when we cook. Finally, we picked some flowers for the classroom before we came back to school. We had a fun morning and learnt lots of new things!

Year 4 trip to Fishbourne Roman Palace (37 images)

Year 4 had a great time at Fishbourne Roman Palace on Wednesday 2nd November 2016. We explored the museum and found out so many interesting facts about Roman life. Whilst undertaking our workshop, we even dressed in Roman tunics and took part in many activities such as designing mosaics and using Roman writing implements. We were lucky enough to see the mosaic designs uncovered by archaeologists at the palace and take in the magnificent designs. It was a great day and we look forward to using what we have learnt back at school.

Year 3 trip to Butser Farm (14 images)

Year 3 enjoyed a fun-packed day at Butser Farm in Waterlooville on Thursday 17th November 2016. 3H and 3R set off in search of new learning about the Stone and Iron Age. Butser Farm showed year 3 what it would have been like to live back in time, the round houses were built without windows and the toilets were VERY basic! Stone Age life seemed fun, but without warm clothing like ours, we wondered how they kept warm-then we spotted the open fires in the centre of the houses. We completed some archaeology, chalk carving, wattling (starting to make a Stone Age wall) and spinning wool. The whole year group enjoyed the trip so much that we’d love to return next year!

Year 2 trip to The British Wildlife Centre (44 images)

What an amazing trip! We had a lot of fun seeing lots of different British animals. Some of our favourites were the red squirrel, Flo the fox and Kevin the barn owl. We learnt lots of interesting facts too. Please take a look at our lovely photos which captured the essence of our brilliant day!

Year 3 Flint making (9 images)

Year 3 kicked off their topic of ‘Tools from the Past’ by making a Stone Age Tool with our resident archaeologist Mr Thomas. The children observed Mr Thomas making a stone age axe, using knapping, a technique the Stone Age people would also have used. The children loved the real life experience and the year 3 team are very grateful to Mr Thomas for his time and expertise!

The day was a lot of fun and the children looked fantastic in their costumes. We saw some excellent original superheroes including 'Ice cream man' and 'Bubble wrap man'. In the end, we raised £201.97 for Shooting Star Chase Hospices who help support children with life limiting illnesses.
