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.

We collected a generous amount of food, which is already at Portsmouth Foodbank.  We are very grateful for the kind donations made by all pupils and staff.  All of the food collected will be given to local people needing support.
