Basingstoke Culture Day
We’ve had a brilliant day celebrating the 42 countries represented across our school! Thank you to the parents and Basingstoke visitors who shared about their own country and culture. You were briliant! A special thanks to Keya and Navlyn for perfoming an Indian dance and Angelina for performing a Nepalese dance, both in front of the whole school!
- Don’t forget you can book summer slots to look after our animals. We’ve got the summer to fill :) Click here!
- Can you be on a backup list for farm bookings in case of emergency? Just email the office to let us know. Thank you!
Got any spare wellies?
We are collecting wellies for children across to school to use in our outdoor provision. If you’ve got any spare, please pass them to the office. Thanks!
Year 6, you are amazing!
We’ve been treated to something very special this week. Year 6 were outstanding in their performance of The Little Mermaid. We’re so proud of them and the huge efforts they put in. It all paid off!
They’ve also had an excellent Leaver’s Disco tonight. Thank you to the Year 6 parents for organising!
