Arriving this weekend!
We want to thank all those who have helped in getting our farm up and running. It looks amazing and we really appreciate the help of all of the volunteers who have given their time and energy to come and help. We would particularly like to thank Rich Minter and James Naylor for their efforts moving the chippings over several days in the pouring rain. You are all agents of change!
Thank you also to Mrs Barbour, Mr Calver and Mr Parker for their efforts in making the farm possible. And did I mention Mr Calver’s amazing sign he has made?
Book Fair Reminder
Each class will visit the book fair stall. If you’d like your child to buy some books, please send them in with an amount between £3 and £12 in cash in a named envelope on the day below. For Year R, the book fair is after school in the Key Stage 1 playground – please can parents/carers attend with your child.
If you would prefer to pay online and not physically visit the book fair, you can do so here.

Basingstoke Day – can you help?
Wellbeing Week Winners
During our Wellbeing Week we had a fabulous Whole School event which included a competition! The focus for the day was about connection! The children connected together to create a poster all about the five steps to Wellbeing! The top 20 were then chosen and from these classes voted for their top 3! In Worship on Monday the top three posters were announced! Well done to EVERYONE though as it was a fantastic day and children demonstrated all of their learning behaviours and made some new connections (friends) too.
