Love Where You Live - Year 5

The children in Year 5 have had a wonderful time during ‘Love Where You Live Week’, exploring our local area and finding out what makes it a unique and interesting place in which to grow up.


On a gusty day at the Andrew Simpson Sailing Academy, the children took to the choppy seas and did a great job in difficult conditions. Even the occasional capsize didn’t dent the children’s confidence and enthusiasm.


On Tuesday, the children had the chance to explore the Nothe Fort before it opened to the public. We learnt about the history of this unique local landmark and explored the labyrinthine tunnels below the surface. The children conducted themselves brilliantly on the walk home from school, even when the heavens opened. They really did themselves and Radipole proud.


In class, we have explored the Jurassic Coast in geography and tried our hand at watercolour painting in an art lesson.
