Jolly Sailors


Rock Up in Whiteley

Year 1 Jolly Sailors went to experience the climbing walls and activities at Rock Up!

First we had our climbing harness strapped on tightly and then we learned the rules.

It really tested our courage climbing up so high and we had to find the right hand and foot holds to help us climb safely.

Southampton Art Gallery and workshop

The Jolly Sailor trips to the Colour and Print Workshop at Southampton Art Gallery have been very enthusiastically embraced by the pupils.

With the gallery's art teacher we have looked at how to interprite the art in the gallery looking at colour and shape.




We were shown how to use warm and cool coloured pastels

in our pattern and shape design.

Learning about mono printing and using inks.

We were given free time to explore the art gallery for ourselves.


 You can see our beautiful display of some of our

finished art work by the school office.

The Jolly Sailor’s had a wonderful time preparing for their Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. They made sandwiches and cakes, decorated table cloths and plates, and even created their very own Mad Hatter’s Hat!
