Here's what has been happenning in our school recently!

New Trim Trail

Less than two weeks to wait now until our new trim trail arrives - we can't wait!

Secondhand toy sale

At the beginning of term, our school Councilor's organised a secondhand toy sale to raise money for The Camrose Centre - a local homeless charity. They were incredibly proud that they managed to raise £108.60. Well done to them all, and thank you to everyone who supported the sale and for their generous donations of used toys.

Basingstoke Inter-School Cross Country competition

During the last week of term, Miss Robson took a 40-strong team to the Basingstoke Inter-School Cross Country competition. Everyone did amazingly, but special mention goes to the top-10 finishers:

Xavi was 6th in the Year 3/4 boys race

Summer was 5th in the Year 3/4 girls race

Austin and Ryan were 4th and 5th in the Year 5/6 boys race

Austin and Ryan will now represent Basingstoke in the Hampshire Schools Cross Country event, along with Rosa who came 13th in the Year 5/6 girls race!

Nativity - 2021

We were thrilled to be able to proceed with our annual nativity, with every child in Ladybirds (Year R), Caterpillars (Year 1) and Butterfly class (Year 2) taking part in this year’s ‘Born in a Barn’. The children did an amazing job, with fabulous singing, beautiful dances and super acting! The children were not at all phased by having so many words to learn, and there were some very well timed, humorous lines from some of our budding thespians in Year 2! This year’s nativity posed an even greater challenge to our pupils than in previous years: with two disrupted years of schooling due to Covid, children are less familiar with whole school Worships and have not had the same opportunities to perform to other year groups or to their parents. So we are especially proud of what they have accomplished through this year’s nativity.

Rainbow Chimes - December 2021

A huge thank you to last year’s Year 6 parents who have given us a new outdoor musical instrument for Augusta’s garden—Rainbow Chimes! They sound fantastic and are a wonderful addition to the other outdoor instruments we have there.

Snowman Competition - December 2021

All our pupils took part in Englefield Estate’s Snowman Compeition earlier this term, along with a number of other local schools. They were asked to design a snowman and then the estate picked their favourites which they are now making into wooden snowmen to be hidden on Englefield estate’s public grounds. A map of where all the snowmen are located will be sent out before the end of term, and families will be able to explore the woodland during the Christmas holidays.

There were three winners chosen from our school: Joshua (yr6), Emily (yr5) and Matilda (yrR). Well done to you all—we can’t wait to spot them in the woods!

Year 5 Residential - November/December 2021

At the very end of November, our Year 5 children went away on a three day residential to Ufton Court. They had a fabulous time taking part in a wide range of activities, from team building games involving crates and making dens, to archery.

For many children in Year 5, this was the first time that they have stayed away from home. The visit provides a great opportunity for developing independence, and acts as a stepping stone towards the week long residential in Year 6.

 

Christmas Tree Walk

On Sunday 21st November, Richard Edwards organised a forestry walk for pupils and parents. While on the walk, the pupils helped select our school Christmas tree.
