Year 1 visit to The National Motor Museum
On Wednesday 8th May Barn Owls and Tawny Owls visited The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu as part of their 'We're On the Move' topic.
The children had a fabulous day learning about the invention of the motor car and the subsequent changes in technology over the years to the cars we see today.
The children also had the experience of riding in a very old open topped car!
School Council visit to The Houses of Parliament
On Wednesday 24th April 2019 the School Council were lucky enough to visit The Houses of Parliament in London.
The children caught the train from Basingstoke to Waterloo along with Mrs James, Mrs Durbajlo, Mrs Gregory and our Chair of Governors, Chris Martin.
Look at the photos they took while they were there......perhaps there is a future Prime Minister amongst them!!!!

Year R Trip to Wellington Country Park
Year R launched their 'On the Farm' topic with a fabulous trip to Wellington Country Park on Friday 1st March.
Whilst there Year R were able to see a small farm and some of the animals that live there including goats, donkeys and guinea pigs (which they got to feed).
They were also lucky enough to go on a 'Dinosaur Trail' which was amazing as Year R had been 'Digging for Dinosaurs' the previous term.
A tiring day was had by all on a day that the weather was kind to them.
The children have been remembering 100 years since the end of the First World War in 1918. They have been creating 'Poppy Pictures' using a variety of mediums and their results can be seen on display in the Tesco store at Chineham.
