Year 1 – Marwell Trip

As part of our Enquiry ‘Should zoos exist?’, on Tuesday 15th June Year 1 went to Marwell zoo. We were able to look at all the enclosures and had in depth discussions about them. We all attended some interesting workshops, where we had the opportunity to see the different skulls from the classification groups such as bird, reptile etc.

It was a scorching hot day, but we all learnt a lot and enjoyed every minute!

Thank you to all the children that held Shamblehurst’s name high!

You are all superstars!

Year 2 Titanic Day

On Wednesday 10th March 2021, Year 2 children took on the role of a passenger on board the Titanic. They came dressed as a 1st, 2nd or 3rd class passenger all with their own reasons for starting their journey to America. We experienced what it would have been like on board from different points of view.
The children set sail from Southampton, explored the 3 classes on board the ship, went to the 3 dining rooms and took part in some waltzing.

Tunneling

As part of their P.E. year 1 & 2 have been participating in tunneling sessions. Children have been introduced to tunneling in an indoor setting but, the sessions are designed to give them an adventurous experience of how tunneling would be in the mountains or the forest.

Using their imaginations helps them to create a realistic and exciting learning environment, whilst having the challenges of being in the outdoors surrounded by rocks, trees and different weather conditions.

The children are learning different movement skills which allows them to crawl thought the tunnels and into the caves where they experience being together. finding spaces and communicating before finding their way back out of the tunnels.

The sessions are designed to give children an exciting learning opportunity linking with Shamblehurst learning muscles such as: communication, listening, perseverance, collaboration and managing distractions.

Safeguarding Day

Today there have been a number of events happening in regards to safeguarding.

The pupils have had a visit from PC Becky Veal. Who was here to talk to the pupils in Year 1 and 2 about how to recognise: people that keep you safe, safe strangers, e.g. (Police, Teachers, and Shop assistant) and strangers. Becky also explain how the police stay safe while protecting the public. Some of the pupils were allowed to try on some of the protective clothing.

The talk for Years 3 – 6 was about staying safe online. This talk covered texting of images and the posting of content online. Becky spoke about how when you post something online or message it to someone you lose control over what that image, video or text can be used for.

We also had a visit from the NSPCC to talk about safeguarding. They did an assembly for Key Stage 1 and 2 on the definitions of abuse and about the Childline Helpline 0800 1111. They will be revisiting on Monday 5th December to work with Year 5 and 6.
