Portsmouth University 'UP4It'


The University 'Up4It' team came in today. During the morning, the children learned what a university is - they decided it's a 'Job college'.


They played games to learn about where a student might live, chatted with the students and discovered the wide-range of subjects that could be studied.  Year 5 now have a better understanding of university life and just how much fun that can be.


'Jack and the Beanstalk'


M&M Theatre came into school last week to present their version of 'Jack and the Beanstalk'.

The children were amazed by the set and were very excited to see what would happen. The four actors played a number of different roles and the children laughed and gasped along as the play progressed. At one point two members of our school staff were 'invited' to join in with some dancing - Miss Brien and Mr Victor were willing volunteers and showed us some impressive moves. I think they all agree it was a fantastic show.

Rise Theatre Group


Rise theatre group spent a day here, the children were all involved in creating props for the performance which took place in the afternoon.
  Each class made something to show; Y5 made shields, using paint and collage materials,with some Y2 children - they were very colourful.
The final part of the day was the story of  'The Mustard Seed'. Everyone had a part to play, whether it was acting, reading a prayer, singing or presenting their artwork.  What a fabulous day! 

Meet the Author - Gareth P. Jones

Y5 had the opportunity to meet Gareth P. Jones, a well-known children's author.

During the afternoon, they listened to amazing songs, stories of how their favourite characters were 'born' and joined in with some joke-telling.


They had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed the very entertaining, energetic and hilarious presentation. Gareth kindly stayed to sign books for some children who had bought books.

Viking Drama Workshop

Year 5 spent a day finding out about Vikings: where they came from and how they lived. The children had an opportunity to dress up in Viking costumes and had great fun demonstrating what they had learnt through drama and song.
