Lockdown Diaries

Mias New Forest Visit with her dog Poppy to visit the ponies

Matthew & Elizabeth have been very busy holding a charity litter picking event for Tearfund! They've collected four bags of litter from Barton Beach and clifftop already! Tearfund supports those in poverty and those in disadvantaged communities. What a wonderful and thoughtful idea! Keep up the great work!

Tallulah and Evangeline have been exploring letter writing as an extra activity during our home school learning. They have each written letters with beautiful handwriting to their great grandparents, grandparents and friends. They both decided it would be nice to send a letter and a rainbow to the Queen. Today both girls received a response from Windsor Castle. They are so excited to have a personal letter from the lady in waiting.

Evangeline and Tallulah designed a rainbow with Lulah completing a creative writing piece for the rainbow trail competitions. Both girls have been chosen and they have their rainbows on display in the common along with Tallulah's creative writing. The girls are very proud to be part of the trail and we are proud of them too.


Amber and Eden, Year 2, drew rainbows for the rainbow trial and they've been to visit them in Riverside Park. Eden also contributed a story called Molly's Cat and this is displayed on the common. They'll be visiting it over the summer.

Mia & Eddie - Y3 & Nursery - Having fun during lock-down: crafts, walks, riding bikes, cooking, playing 🙂

Anaiya, Year 2, has been on a super hero hunt, baked bread and cakes, done some sewing, been to the beach for a walk, dressed up as a fairy. She has cooked in her home made kitchen in the back of the garden. And she made a socially distant play doh model with Lego friends on two islands and designed a dress with red lentils and kidney beans.

Here is a salt dough creation made by Zack, Zoe and Scott (years 6 and 3)

This is a keepsake to remind them of lockdown which we have kept along with our letter from Boris Johnson 
We have incorporated the rainbow on it to remind us of the NHS


The method to make this was 

500g plain flour

250g salt

250g water


We mixed to form the dough, extra flour required so it doesn’t stick to the surface 

We made our plaque Shape then did handprints

This was then baked in the oven on the lowest setting for approx 4-5 hours.

Zoe has used up her brothers unwanted Easter eggs to make marshmallow Rice Krispie cakes

Scott was sent his virtual awards ceremony for the end of season for his Sunday league football team ‘Wimborne and Holt’ as they were unable to host their usual awards night. Scott came away with his player trophy and an extra one for supporters player voted for by the parents of the team.

Joanna did the national oak academy yr2 lessons on space (highly recommend!) and learnt the order of the planets and a fact about each planet complete with actions! 


She also wrote this brilliant mixed up fairytale from the English videos (we spent a while this week thinking about exciting adjectives):

We made planet/moon/star cookies:


Come to the moon with Charles, Joanna and Bethany!

For the latest theme - space. It's life with the Lawson's Jim - but not as we know it!

Poppy, Year 4. For my entry I decided I wanted to celebrate the NHS and say thank you to as many of the staff and volunteers as possible. I made an interactive bunting for decoration. It has tablets from the pharmacy that can lift off and be restuck, a large open mouth with dentistry tools, a patient who gets in and out of bed, a GPS bag with equipment inside. I also made an X-ray for radiology, wrote a short poem explaining the celebration idea. A telephone for the receptionists, 111 operators and all other phone operators. There is also a sewn pair of nurses scrubs with needle to celebrate nurses and volunteers who have given time to sew for the NHS and an opticians chart. This is my entry for the thank you NHS competition.

Olive’s “borrowers room”

Reed, Year 5, I hope you’ve had a nice week off. We haven’t really done that much although we did have what should have been our holiday-day on Sunday. We had a lovely day starting with a cooked breakfast, a couple of hours down the beach (until it began to get busy), paddling pool fun at home and our favourite food and ice cream. We even did the airport bit where we had a Burger King (mums best thing as no cooking) with Paddington the film on the way there and Paddington 2 for the way back.

Jakub worked really hard on building his Borrower's house. He even did a fantastic job writing and explaining which materials he used to create it. Great work Jakub!

Dear Miss Wakeling,

We hope you are well and taking some time to relax. We cannot thank you and colleagues enough for all your hard work over the last weeks. As a show of our appreciation we have made a short video. We hope it makes you smile. Please feel free to share with your colleagues if you think they would enjoy it.

Kindest regards
Alex and family

Sebastian, Year 3, has been working on the burrowers.

The Domino family live in a cardboard pizza box on top of the kitchen cupboards. The funny thing about that is, their favourite food is also pizza. The box is held open buy two kabab skewers which are decorated with red and blue sparkly tinsel. There is brown string tied across the two polls, which hangs across the middle of the ceiling. Hanging from the string is a yellow ribbon that has a lolly stick attached at both ends to make a swing. They have a chest of draws made from a match box that has a screw to open and close it. This is used to store their tissues. They need a lot of tissues as it is very dusty on top of the kitchen cupboards, and they are always sneezing. They have a sofa made out of a darts case and 2 washing up sponges cut in half. One pink, one blue. There are three bunk beds made from three toilet rolls with a napkin wrapped around it and napkin blankets. There is a coffee table made out of a Cellotape roll, with a playing card on top. They use 2 brass radiator end caps as bowls. There is a candle on top of the chest of draws. Which they use for heat. To light the room they use a car light bulb attached to a battery using speaker wire.

Ayana in year 4. The Borrowers project was so much fun, creativity and imagination! She made the crayons from tooth sticks. This is how she describes the Borrowers' house: "The symmetrical cardboard shelves for the food are really nice. My small toy chicken was very useful for the little Borrowers to support the shelves. They had a brilliant idea when they thought to use my mother's round powder box as a table for reading and colouring. They used two square sponges from my sister's earrings boxes to sit on. Comfortable chairs, don't you think? They even 'borrowed' my red velvet jewellery box to keep cookies in it. They found two beaded coasters handmade by my grandma and they used them as luxurious carpets. They are very sneaky. Be careful not to have on these families in your house, otherwise, bye bye stuff! 😉 So, as I was saying, they took most of my toys, even one of my favourite Lego mixes only to use it as their table! Check all corners around your house, don't let them trick you!"


We love hearing her teacher over the phone and talking about lessons and how Ayana spends her time every week. We are also delighted to hear familiar voices during the lessons- her current teacher Miss Dear and her former teachers from Bitterne Park Primary School Miss Pellow and Mr Quill. Ayana was thrilled to take part in the Maths competition as well! Thank you for the hard work, you have done an amazing job keeping the children connected with the learning process and helping them have a schedule to hold on to and progress in these uncertain times. You have been very professional and kept the children's best interest at heart.

Thank you again!

Lena, year 3

Ollie had fun in the garden at the weekend. He walked over shark, crocodile (and elephant!) infested waters and managed not to fall in! Then his monster trucks had a go! We also found a bird in our garden which appeared to be unable to fly. Ollie named the bird Gary and made him a shelter. We gave him some food and water and fortunately later in the day Gary must have felt much better as he flew away. He's been back to visit a few times as he now knows he can get a free meal!
