Home Schooling Reception Style!

Reception have been very busy over the last week thinking about jungle animals, learning how to use technology safely and respectfully, making magic wands and even learning to tell the time! The girls have coped brilliantly with all of the home-schooling tasks they have been set and we are all so proud of them (and their parents!).

Wild Things Eco Festival

The 'Wild Things' eco-festival has been a roaring success this week, and we have been delighted by all the work and photos you have sent in. The festival centred around biodiversity, and children were invited to explore three main themes: Gardens and bees, Hedgehogs, and Rainforests. They even received a virtual talk from a bee expert! Children across all year groups learned the importance of celebrating and caring for our planet's biodiversity, and took wonderful, practical steps to do this. Well done to everybody who took part.

Butterfly Growing

This Year 1 pupil has been raising her own butterflies! Starting with wiggly caterpillars, she watched them create chrysalises, then transform into beautiful butterflies! What a great idea for lockdown.

Spring Flowers Competition

Wow! Miss Jackson has been truly amazed by the quality of work that has been sent in for the spring flowers creative competition. It has been lovely to see everyone being so inspired by David Hockney’s work. It has been hard to choose winners as they have all been of such a high standard.  The winners are:

Pre-prep - Ophelia (Y1) 
Seniors - Matilda (Y4) and Ione (Y5)


Well done children and thank you so much for taking part!

World Penguin Day

Erin (Y1) spent time last Saturday on 'World Penguin Day' counting penguins on behalf of scientists monitoring penguin colonies around the world.

Erin had to click on every adult, chick and egg she could see in the real time image. These numbers will be logged and added to the total, which will give scientists an idea of how many penguins inhabit different parts of the world.

Cressie Makes Visors for Local Care Givers

Cressie (along with her Mum and brother) has been involved in a local community project making face visors for local Care givers. The group was set up by Sarah Bicknell in Churt and the family are part of a work force group off shoot in Bramshott. In total there are 65 volunteers in Haslemere, Farnham, Midhurst and Bramshott, who in the last two weeks have made 12,000 visors. They are now working towards 15,000 with the goal to make 20,000. They have had great feedback on the quality and high standard of the visor. They are being used at Frimley Park Hospital, Phyllis Tuckwell and local drs surgeries too. 

They are now also doing private orders so if you know anyone who needs them please do let the family  know. They still need more volunteers, drivers and fund raising - these cost 85p to make so even a fiver makes a huge difference!
