School Closure - March 2020

In March 2020 the Government took the unprecedented decision to close schools in England and we entered a 'lock-down' period due to the Coronavirus.  During this time children were kept at home and parents became their teachers.  Some children, especially the children of key workers, still needed to be in school though.  Look at some of the amazing things our fabulous children got up to.

Winchester Science Centre & Planetarium


In November 2019 the whole school went on an exciting trip to the Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium.


Here the children were able to get involved in lots of exciting and hands-on activities and experiments (and so were the adults!)

Year 1 Trip to The National Motor Museum in Beaulieu


As part of their Transport Topic the children from Barn and Tawny Owls visited The National Motor Museum in the New Forest.


Here they were able to see cars that were over 100 years old, racing cars, modern cars and some very strange looking cars!  They also took a short ride in a vintage open topped car.


A very small 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 2 Titanic Topic


The Year 2 children learnt all about The Titanic - and they were fascinated!!  As a homework project the children were asked to make a model of The Titanic - and look at how amazing they all were! FANTASTIC

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.

Remembrance Sunday


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.

Spring into Reading Evening


On Tuesday 28th March Miss Smith hosted another fantastic reading evening - 'Spring into Reading'


The event was extremely well attended and all the children and adults were able to enjoy the activities laid on by the staff.  The parents were also able to gain valuable knowledge and skills to help their child with reading and phonics. 


Refreshments were provided by FOMs.
