Comic Relief takes place on Friday 19th March 2021.
The theme this year is ‘Superpowers’!
On the Friday, children are invited to attend school in a superhero costume (this could also be a real life superhero such as your mum, dad, a Doctor, a teacher, a shopkeeper… the list is endless!) and donate 50p.
We will also be holding a household Superhero competition. Using just five household items, in just one hour, what superhero costume can you create? Bring a picture of your household superhero costume in to school by Monday 22nd March and hand in to your teacher, to be in with a chance of winning the competition for your year group! Throughout the day, children will have the chance to share their favourite jokes in class. At the end of the day, all children will take part in a 15 min ‘Superhero’ Just Dance session. All children will receive a certificate for participating in the day’s events.
‘Wear a Hat Day’ takes place on Friday 26th March 2021 in support of Brain Tumour Research.
This year, the charity are celebrating key workers who have played a pivotal role throughout the pandemic. On the Friday, for a donation of 50p, we invite children to wear a hat to represent a job / career of their choice. The children may make their own hat if they wish to do so. Normal school uniform will still need to be worn. Throughout the day, the children will learn about the different jobs represented by the hats worn. We would like children to research either 3 facts about hats or 3 facts about their chosen job (or a mixture of both) to share in school.
June 2019 Lyndhurst Travelled Back to 1944 for D-Day 75 Commemoration
Pupils and staff from Lyndhurst Junior School have been remembering the events of 75 years ago to help pupils understand the significance of D-Day. It will not be very many more years until D-Day passes from living memory into history and, as it is such a vital part of our national story, Tamsyn Holman (PHSE Lead) and Kathy Hynes-Kelly (History Lead) wanted to ensure the pupils gained as much from the commemorations as possible. Pupils and staff wore 1944 style attire, played games from the period and, of course, learnt about the importance of the historical events. Children also discovered the involvement of Lyndhurst in the war effort through the reminiscences of an ex pupils of the school! They were fascinated to learn that the young soldiers spent the night before they boarded ships on the school playground and how local residents provided food and drink for them.

November 2018 Poppy Wave
Together with College Park Infant School we created a Poppy Wave, erected across the adjoining wall between the two schools. Children with their parents and teachers created their own poppies to show respect for Armistice Day.
Councillor Suzy Horton, a Cabinet Member for Education, heard about our wave on our social media page and came along to see the wave in person and to meet some of the children and take a tour of the school.
October 2018 Harvest Festival
