Our trip to Vestas– By Robyn and Erin
On Thursday Robyn, Erin, Poppy and Hettie went to Vestas for a Portsmouth High School engineering competition. If you were wondering what Vestas is; it’s a company that makes massive wind turbines to make electricity.
We met Miss Moseley early and collected our passes and badges and went straight to the design room to start the day. When we sat down we noticed that there was a box that had all our supplies in that we needed. We were tasked with the job of designing a Monorail train and drop it down a ramp to see how far it could travel. We were awarded points depending on how far the train travelled. We also were awarded points for team work and presentation. We designed our logos for our train company and our company name was ATT (Arreton Turbo Trains). We then voted to see which logo we would use. Erin's got the most votes but we all added a bit of originality to it. Then we all had to design what we wanted our monorail train to look like and start the making process. A short break of juice and cookies then we finished off our designs. We then set about pricing and timetables for our monorail and it's journey.
After all the hard work we finally tested and presented our monorail train to all the other schools. After all thirteen schools had finished their presentations, the judges awarded us FIRST PLACE!!
We had a wonderful day and by keeping our design simple we could use the time to work on our presentation and team work.
We would like to say a huge thank you to the organisers and staff that made the day possible.
Well done TEAM ARRETON!
Paddington Class Toy Visit
On Tuesday 10th October, Year 1 were delighted to have a visit from Miss Baker from Carisbrooke Castle Museum. She brought with her a collection of old toys, some that were over 100 years old and one that may have belonged to Queen Victoria’s youngest daughter Princess Beatrice. The children really enjoyed watching how the toys worked and discussing how they were different to their own toys. They then had the opportunity to play and explore replica toys. Particular favourites were watching and changing the moving pictures of the zoetropes, being surprised by the Jack in the Boxes and practising walking on stilts. The children had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and without realising were learning a lot about toys in the past and differences between life today and in the past.
UKSA sailing YR6 trip!- By Jess
Thursday Yr6 went to UKSA! A sailing company!
On Thursday YR6 went to UKSA for a lesson on how to sail! Our afternoon started in the mini bus, on our journey we were all singing our hearts out, excited to sail! When we finally arrived, we met the staff and they started to explaining how to work the boat! We got into partners and set sail. We had a few problems to start with but we eventually got going. At first everyone was sailing really well, until Jess and Lola managed to capsize into the water! It was freezing! It took a lot of time to get back into the boat but we finally managed. When they got back into the boat, Jess realized she lost her shoe! Luckily we had some staff around us to help us.
From that point, we were all a bit scared! After a while, everyone found it quite easy. A lot of the class stayed ahead but we stayed to chat with Jack, when he was talking to us we relaxed a bit more! Until Jess and Lola had another problem with getting stuck in the mud! So we had to pull the dagger out to be free again! It took a long time to get there but we eventually did. When we got to Newport we ended up getting towed back
We had so much fun and we would like to give a huge thank you to UKSA.
Football Report from Coach Backshall
Our Year 5/6 football team competed in the IOWSFA Rural Schools seven aside Danone Cup on Wednesday at Queensgate.We won all of our group games; 1-0 against Holy Cross (Goal by Joel); 4-0 against St Blasius (Goals by Alfie F-2, Alfie R and Joel) and 2-0 against Godshill (Goals by Alfie R and Joel). The team were really playing well. This put us into the semi final where we played Shalfleet and unfortunately lost in extra time 2-1 (Goal by Alfie R).We were very unlucky! Coach Backshall was so proud of all the players, they performed so well, a real credit to the school. Jamie was solid in goal, Riley and John in the heart of the defence were like rocks! Elliott, Jack, and Joel were excellent going forward, with special mention to Joel who scored in all the group games and was brilliant throughout. Alfie R and Alfie F up top were magnificent and produced some beautiful goals and skill.You can see that Alfie R was still upset after losing in the semi!
Better luck next time boys.
Wight in Bloom
On Wednesday 13th September, Miss Horne, James, Joseph, Samuel, Hettie and Benji attended the Wight in Bloom presentation ceremony, at Northwood House in Cowes. Over the past year the PTA , gardening club, children and staff have worked hard to develop our outdoor areas, to make them not only beautiful but educational as well. It was our first year taking part in the competition and we were absolutely thrilled to be presented with first place in the young people’s initiative category! The children had their award presented to them by Alan Titchmarsh and received lots of exciting prizes to help develop the schools outdoor areas! We are all very excited to receive the award and we are so grateful to everyone who gave up their free time and support to help develop the outdoor areas. We look forward to continuing to develop our outdoor area over the year to come!
