Under the Sea
Our 'Under the Sea' topic this half term has been very popular. Our trip to Blue Reef Aquarium really set us up to fully immerse ourselves in our learning about different sea creatures. As part of our day, we were able to hold a crab and touch a starfish which was very exciting. We were fascinated by the stingrays and the way they swam around really gracefully. The weather was super so we enjoyed a picnic outside where we were able to watch the boats and the hovercraft setting sail. We all behaved beautifully and had a lovely day out. Our trip led to lots of learning linked to some stories too. A favourite was definitely Gilbert the Great by Jane E Grant as sharks were definitely fascinating to learn about! We wrote facts as well as thinking up our own adventure story for Tiddler, the story-telling fish in the book by Julia Donaldson.
Our annual sports day was once again a lovely occasion full of teamwork and fun. The children took part in some races in the morning, competing on their own and as part of some mixed year group relay teams which was great fun. In the afternoon, cheered on by our family and friends, we completed all our challenges to earn points for our team. The children excelled themselves with their effort and determination and made us very proud as it was an extremely warm afternoon! Well done everyone!
A highlight of our Buryfields calendar is always Camo Day. RAF Odiham provide an amazing awe inspiring time for the children starting with a chinook landing on the school field which is an incredible sight. We all loved all the activities which ranged from a game of 'camouflaged' hide and seek to a highly competitive obstacle course. A seat in the cockpit of the chinook was very popular too! We have all been inspired by the celebrations for RAF 100 and we have produced some super artwork of chinooks and other aircraft.
