Snow Dome (12 images)

On Monday this week, the children in Year 6 went on their final trip whilst at Castleview, visiting the Snowdome in Hemel Hempstead. While the sun was shining outside, the children wrapped up in their ‘Winter woollies’ to prepare for temperatures well below freezing! Brrrr!!! Their action-packed day included an introduction to skiing and snowboarding, followed by an afternoon of tobogganing! What a great way to celebrate the children’s time at Castleview!

Golden Hinde (4 images)

Year 1 travelled to London for the day to see the Golden Hinde Pirate ship. We went to the Golden Hinde to have the adventure of the sea brought to life by pirate James explaining about day to day life on board ship, raising the anchor by turning the capstan and reloading and mock firing a minion gun. The children also found out that Sir Francis Drake’s greatest achievement was his voyage of discovery aboard the Golden Hinde. This made him the first English man to circumnavigate the globe. His mission was to seek treasure from the Spanish! The children had an amazing day and have learnt lots of interesting facts.

Windsor Castle Visit (4 images)

This week Year 3 went on their annual trip to Windsor Castle. Being a larger year group now, we split into smaller groups and went on two consecutive days. The Wednesday group were able to see the Changing of the Guard and were enthralled by the vivid red jackets , the tall, black bearskin helmets as well as an array of rifles, drums and brass instruments. The Thursday group arrived to find the Castle and town preparing for a full dress rehearsal for a State visit next week, so some of us were treated to a ceremonial procession of mounted household cavalry and we all glimpsed the Regiment marching through town.

Year 4 Trumpet Concert 2014 (5 images)

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Spirit Centre where they all performed in the music concert. The children have been learning their brass instruments since September and this was the perfect opportunity to show off their musical talents. It was a superb concert where Castleview were joined by 4 other schools to sing songs, use ‘body percussion’ and play their instrument.

Using a camera (12 images)

During the nursery session we have been learning how to use the digital cameras. We have taken lots of photos focussing on the colour green. We used the photos the children took to find out how many different shades of green we could find. We then used these photos in deciding the shades of greens we wanted to use when painting the background for our Little Red Hen pictures.
