Welcome back and D Day Celebrations near Bishops Waltham

Welcome back to our last half term of the school year. This term is always very busy, so please keep up to date by checking our 'Latest News' page weekly.


We had a special 80th D Day Assembly yesterday, where we followed the first part of two children's journeys about their own relatives who had been part of D Day in 1944. If you would like to watch the rest of the film, it is on our 'Learning Links', here;


Newsround D Day


We will also be having our own special D-Day lunch on Thursday 6th June, which is advertised further down on this page.


There are lots of events in the South East over the rest of this week, which you may want to attend with your children.  In Portsmouth, there are lots of events today and tonight there is a 'Drone Show' over the Solent.


On Saturday, to celebrate Armed Forces Day, there is a free event all day, with a display from the Red Arrows too.
