Summer is coming! Hooray!
Please remember a sun hat, sun cream and a bottle of water!
Science trip to Fort Nelson
As part of our Science topic “materials” we visited Fort Nelson. Fort Nelson is one of five defensive forts built on the summit of Portsdown Hill in the 1860s, overlooking the important naval base of Portsmouth. When it was built it was at the cutting edge of military defensive architecture.
We had fun exploring the 150 year old massive walls, ramparts and network of secret tunnels searching for different materials and identifying whether they were man-made or natural.
We discovered what life was like for the Victorian garrison in the barrack rooms and saw how Florence Nightingale and Mary Seacole improved military hospitals.
This half term, we will be learning about The Great Fire of London.

We have PE on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons.
Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in and that earrings or any other jewelry is not worn on these days.
