World Book Day

We had a fantastic day on Thursday, celebrating the world of books. We started with parents joining children in school for our Bookie Breakfast. A fantastic atmosphere! The children made a fantastic effort with their costumes – very creative. Many classes enjoyed a snippet of a Matilda performance written by our very own Mrs Chapman and Mrs Bridle. Our pupils ‘dressed a door’ as a book, too – see our website. Other activities included writing a postcard to Mr Applegate about how their favourite book character demonstrates one our of school values or learning behaviours. A busy – but fantastic – day 🙂

Air Pollution Project Begins

Today our Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) and Eco-Committee joined forces to begin an investigation into air pollution around our school. Along with other schools and organisations, we hope to see what the quality of air is like, and use this information to help spur everyone onto to living in a cleaner, healthier environment.

Maria Miller MP, Cllr Stephen Reid, and Jean MacGory and Kirstie Green from Hampshire Travel Planning met with us as we learned about why clean air is important, and how transport and the environment can have a impact on this. Watch this space for more info.
