Hampshire Fire Service - posted 9th Jan

Today, year 6 were visited by the Hampshire Fire Service, as part of our continued efforts to make sure that our children's PSHE curriculum allows them to understand how to be safe. They looked at the causes of fires and how to react if they find themselves in a dangerous situation. This even included issues such as searching for pets in a fire, which was a problem that had been of concern to some children.

Year 3 Nativity
On Friday 20th December (the last day of term), our fabulous year 3 children took part in their own spectacular performance of the nativity story at the Garrison church. Performing in front of the whole school and many of their parents/ family members, the children transported us to a TV studio where we were able to witness live the countdown for Christmas number 1! Through quirky and entertaining bands such as 'Gabriel's Soul Patrol', 'The Landlords', 'The Crooks', 'Donkey and the Animals', 'The Wise Guys' and 'Herod and the King's Swingers' the children reminded us of the true story of Christmas but with a unique edge! The year 3 staff were so proud of how well the children performed on the day and were amazed by how loudly they spoke and how well they memorised their lines in front of such a large audience! Many parents and staff members congratulated them on their performance stating that 'it added a touch of real Christmas magic to the end of term!' We would also like to thank the parents/ carers for all their support in helping the children to memorise their lines, practise their songs and help to prepare costumes. Your presence in the church was also hugely appreciated and we particularly loved how willing you were to sing, dance and clap along to our final song! We hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and look forward to welcoming the children again in the new year!

Year 4 Music assembly - posted 10th Dec

Today Year 4 performed their first music concert of the year on African percussion. Throughout the term the children had been working extremely hard to learn a range of African percussion through both song and rhythm. Their performance today was exceptional and showed the amazing progress they have made. We would also like to thank all parents that were able to attend the concert. A final reminder that any photos or films taken are for personal use only and should not be shared as this does not support our safeguarding policy.

More Able Comic Event 
On Wednesday 20th November, 60 high ability writers from across the school participated in a comic creating masterclass led by the inspiring comic writer Kev F, who has worked for the renowned comic publishers Beano and Marvel. Each workshop (both lower school and upper school) began by introducing the children to some of his most famous comic characters before showing the children how to draw their own unique character. Once the children were happy with their designs, he then showed the pupils how to turn their ideas into a comic strip story. Whilst the children were busy working on their comic masterpieces, Kev F cleverly designed the front cover of their comic (which the children named themselves) and produced a unique and individual caricature of each child. Once the children had finalised their comic strips, they were then sent to print and each child was given their own personalised copy to take home! The day was a fantastic success with one child even asking, "What did I do so right to deserve this?" Thank you Kev F for such a spectacular day! We hope to have you back soon in the future!

Year 3 Cinema Trip 
On Tuesday 19th November, year 3 visited Cineworld in Aldershot as part of this year's national Film Festival. With Christmas now only around the corner, we enjoyed a festive showing of the animated movie 'The Grinch' inspired by the Dr Seuss classic. The children thoroughly enjoyed the many laugh-out-loud moments such as the Grinch dancing in his hot pink underpants and the oversized reindeer who had a loving for whipped cream! The children were superbly behaved and a delight to take! We look forward to seeing what next year's Film Festival has to offer.
