Paulton’s Park

The big day arrived! PAULTONS PARK ALL DAY!!

The Year 3 and 4 pupils were very excited and when we arrived, we instantly went to the Science lab for our very interactive and exciting ‘Forces’ session with Paultons’ resident Science expert!

Pupils tested their rollercoaster simulations as well as learning about time principles of forces and how they relate to the mechanics of the rides and rollercoasters!

After this, we felt it was important to test the rollercoasters and so a group went to the biggest rides to feel the g-force and the rush!

Others were spinning, some were happy with a slightly slower and calmer beginning.

After lunch, some watched the 4D cinema film whilst others made their way to the fast and furious rides once again.

The latter part of the afternoon was spent getting soaked on the log ride and being swung on the giant spinner.

We finally had Peppa in sight as we went on the final ride before departing.

Everyone had a fantastic day!

Forest School

Year 4 pupils enjoyed their final Forest Schools session and learned a great deal from the extended morning. Pupils received a certificate for the term’s activity with a reminder of where they had most shown progress.

Lymington Crazy Golf

In the afternoon, Year 3 and 4 pupils went to the Lymington Golf Centre where the pupils enjoyed an 18 hole round of crazy golf. It was a fantastic afternoon with plenty of balls in the rough, water, hedges and on the paths!
