A massive thank you to all the parents and guardians who helped support us in raising money for Comic Relief last Friday. An extra big thank you to those of you who sent in cakes for our bake sale. It was a great success!
It was a wonderful day and lovely to see all of the children’s fantastic costumes.
The most impressive costumes were voted as Katie in Year 5 for Key Stage 2 and Kamiyah in Year 2 for Key Stage 1-well done girls!
Over the course of the week we sold 840 red noses at £1 each, the money for which goes directly to Comic Relief.
The competitions, cake sale and non-uniform day raised £558.11.
The Year 6 The Voice event raised £101.
….so altogether we raised an amazing £1498.11 for Comic Relief.
Great work everyone!

I have a great family with my sister Ehansa, who is in year 1 in this school, my mum, Thanuja-who was a lawyer and my dad Krishan – an engineer . My favourite food is rice and curry as it is the staple food of Sri Lanka. I live in Basingstoke . I don’t have any pets but I would like to have a dog in the future. The secondary school I’m going to is Kendrick Grammar School in Reading. On Monday the 2nd of March year 6 children found out which school they were going to. In September I took a test seeing how good I was at English and Maths.There were only 96 places so I was pleased to find out I got a place out of 5000 people.My hobbies are swimming, dancing, drawing, reading.I like my phone and playing with it.

On Tuesday 24th February 2015, Year 2 visited Alice Holt forest to study woodland habitats and trees. We had an excellent time and only got a little bit muddy!
The seed game
We learnt about the different things seeds need to grow into trees. We had to collect what we need – water, air, soil and sunlight. We had to work together to be successful.
We counted the number of different tree species we could identify by looking at different leaves and bark.
Take a closer look!
We used magnifying glasses to look really carefully at the ground and trees.
Being a tree
We worked as a whole class to become a tree. We all had different roles: We were roots, leaves, bark, and branches. We akk had different and important role to play.
We used string and pictures to create food chains. We learnt that all food chains start with sun and that humans are at the top of the food chain.
In the afternoon we went for a short walk through the forest, we saw some dens that had been built and looked for ‘faces’ in the trees.
At the end of our walk we spotted the Gruffalo hiding in the trees. Don’t worry, he was very friendly!
What a busy day!
In the spring term year 3 had a stone age day. It must have been fun because they wore stone age costumes.
Magic Dan came as a reward because year 3 were extremely well behaved.
Magic Dan came in the spring term to perform some magic.
We have been fencing with plastic foils. We learnd how to lunge and be on guard. It was fun but the masks smelt bad….
