Year 5/6 Residential Trip - Great Wood
The Year 5 and 6 children of Bishop Henderson School have been on a residential trip to Great Wood. During our time away, the children worked on their cooperation and leadership skills in a number of exciting activities. We also followed some demanding trails through the woods, practised our archery skills and built an enormous camp fire.
On the penultimate day of our visit, we visited Kilve Court. The children faced their fears by scaling the vertical climbing wall, changed into their wellington boots for a very wet and muddy stream walk, demonstrated their sniping skills in rifle shooting and tightened their helmets for a bumpy ride on the grass sledges. It was a great experience for all and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

SS Great Britain
As part of our local history study and topic on Asia and Australasia, we focused on Isambard Kingdom Brunel who is one of the greatest figures in engineering history. We visited the SS Great Britain (designed by Brunel) in Bristol. We explored the ship and learned about the staff and passengers that travelled on it during its voyages to Australia during the Victorian era.
Following our exploration, we took part in a workshop where we played the part of the passengers on their way to Australia. We played with toys and dressed up in clothes from the Victorian era, used lamps to draw silhouettes and found out about the equipment used during each voyage.
This week, Bishop Henderson have been taking part in a number of art based activities with our visitor - Anjali. Kingfisher Class had the opportunity to dance with Dandiya sticks and dress up in traditional Indian clothing. We then had time to create Rangoli patterns with Anjali.
Water, Water, Everywhere!
It's our first full week back in Kingfisher Class and we are already covering the walls in our stunning artwork. We have been looking at the masterpieces created by Japanese artist, Hokusai. In particular, we have been focusing on 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa'. Using pastels, we recreated the wave in our own style - the final pieces of work were exceptional!
