Scalextric Movie Making

 Children in the Junior School took part in an exciting project to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the invention of Scalextrics.

Invented in 1956 by Fred Francis, a local toy manufacturer, Scalextrics grew in popularity across the late 1950s and 1960s. It became an important employer in Havant with a factory based in Leigh Park. It was seen as a forerunner to the interactive inter-generational toys of today.

Trosnant Schools, working with Mill Stream Production and The Spring museum in Havant, created a documentary detailing the importance of Scalextrics to the local community. The film has been showing at the museum from October 2016 as a permanent reminder of this important part of local history.

The children worked hard with Millstream Productions to learn all the skills associated with film making. They then put all these new learnt skills together to create this documentary.

£8000Tesco grant #bagsforhelp for new Wildlife and Vegetable Garden

In 2016 we applied for a Tesco grant to help build a new wildlife and vegetable garden as an outdoor learning space at our school. Here are the Yr 6 children and staff that were invited to come along and launch the voting in Havant

 We were delighted to be awarded the money and work has commenced on clearing the site and building our fantastic new outdoor education space that all of the children across our school will spend time in cultivating and growing different produce.  At our summer fayre this year children could buy a tile and decorate it and this will form a permanent feature in our vegetable garden.
