Emsworth Community Fireworks
Guy Fawkes Colouring Pictures
Help us decorate the school for the Emsworth Community Firework Display....
You can print these pictures (see links below) and colour and decorate them in any way you choose.
Make them bright and eye catching. We would like to create lengths of bunting with these pictures
so it would be helpful if you could stick them onto card (cereal boxes would be perfect).
Please bring them in to school when they are complete.
Do as many as you like and let's get colouring!
Thank you from EPSA (PTA)
Emsworth Primary School Open Day
Year 6 Bugsy Production
21 & 22 July 2017
Well done to Year 6 who put on an amazing show of Bugsy on two consecutive nights, and performed professionally throughout despite the searing heat! The children in the chorus also put their heart and soul into supporting the cast and sung beautifully. Special thanks goes to Lisa Dulson of Tishboom Drama and Mrs Newton for all the hard work they put into the rehearsals. Also thank you for EPSA for providing refreshments, and of course, all the parents, friends and family who came to watch and support their children!
Please check out more photos on our website gallery pages.
Wishing you all a safe and happy Summer Holiday!

Emsworth Primary Music Concert
16 July 2014
Many musicians entertained us on Wednesday evening; guitarists, violinists, pianists, keyboard players and drummers. It was wonderful to see the pleasure children get from playing and the pride on family members’ faces. Thank you to all our peripatetic music teachers and to EPSA for keeping us refreshed during a warm evening. Due to the departure of Year 6 pupils we will have vacancies for other children to have music lessons. Please contact the office if you are interested.

Sports Day at Emsworth Primary School
3 July 2014
We enjoyed fabulous weather for our sports day this week. Children enjoyed participating in a range of events, including sprints, relays, skipping, potato and spoon, obstacle courses and the ‘late for school’ race! A huge thank you to the local Cooperative Store who donated bottles of water, squash and a delicious range of fruit to keep everybody going through the heat. Thank you also to their staff who came to help – we appreciate it very much! Thank you also to our Governors who assisted with score keeping and place awards. If there was a prize for the most enthusiastic supporter I would have no hesitation in awarding it to Mrs Badaoui – cheering in two languages! Congratulations to Red Team who were the overall winners.

Year 5&6 Trip to Mary Rose
11 June 2014
On Wednesday Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a trip to the Mary Rose exhibition in Portsmouth. The children were very impressed by the new museum and the stunning way in which the exhibits and ship were presented. Harvey Watson-Newman particularly enjoyed dressing up as a member of the crew and the interactive games. Tyler Carter said the skeletons were interesting and he really enjoyed having his lunch! Ebony Marsh thought the navigation workshop was cool and Skyla Hawthorne learnt why only one half of the ship survived – ask her to find out why!
Please feel free to take a look at our gallery to see other photos of the day.
Year R/1 Trip to Witterings
4 & 5 June 2014
Emsworth Primary School children have been taking over the beach at West Wittering this week. They were very excited to travel on a coach, have the most delicious lunch at The Beach Café, run down sand dunes, collect natural materials, paddle in the sea and there were even rumours of ice lollies. Several members of the public commented on how well behaved our children were and how well they represented the school.
Please take a peek at our Year R/1 Gallery to see all of our photos!
Year 6 Return from Fairthorne
23 May 2014
Year 6 children arrived back at school after they had had a fantastic week at Fairthorne Manor. Mrs Fripp visited them in the week and was amazed at how muddy children can get and how much energy they still had at the Thursday evening disco. Mrs Newton and Mrs Burt were also quite muddy but their energy levels were falling! A huge thank you to them both for giving up so much time and helping to make it such a valuable experience for the Year 6 children.
Check out our other photos in the Year 6 gallery.
Year 2 Trip to Arundel Castle
20 May 2014
Our Year 2 children had a very exciting trip this week to Arundel Castle. Mia Wyng and Henry Hilliard particularly
enjoyed learning about battles and seeing swords, chainmail and dungeons. Imogen Morrison said the best part
was the picnic and Leanna Alderson and Jack Butcher enjoyed dressing up as jugglers and knights.
Thank you to all the parent helpers who accompanied the children and their teachers.
Year 3 Trip to Butser Ancient Farm
29 April 2014
Year 3 had a fascinating day on Tuesday visiting Butser Ancient Farm to learn about the Stone Age and Iron Age. They enjoyed learning about how people used to live in those times and had a go at wattling, clunching, digging in pits to find ancient artefacts as well as making their own rings or bracelets just as children during those times would have done.
The staff were impressed with the wide range of questions the children had to offer and their desire to know more about how people used to live. Tyler Dunn and Reef Hawthorne were particularly skilled at crushing chalk into a paste so they could help make clunch to build a wall, while Ellie Steaton and Ethan Whitelock managed to uncover some animal teeth and bones whilst carefully digging for relics!

World Book Day at Emsworth Primary School
6 March 2014
We enjoyed celebrating World Book Day this week and would like to thank you for all your help with fancy dress and photographs. Many children enjoyed coming to school early and having breakfast in the hall dressed as one of their favourite book characters. We were delighted to be visited by Otis, an Italian Spinone from Pets as Therapy, and Una, a black Labrador who is being trained as a guide dog. They listened to children read and understandably there were queues of eager children!
Staff from Henry Adams Estate Agents also visited and judged our bookmark competition and generously awarded medals and book vouchers to the prize winners as well as issuing a certificate to every child who entered the competition. We really appreciate links with the local community and are looking forward to more projects with them during the rest of the academic year. The winning bookmarks will be on display in the estate agent’s window for everyone in Emsworth to see!
Children also enjoyed pairing up and sharing books and having stories from adults who are not usually their teachers.
Our book quiz winners were;
Year 2 – Mia Wyng
Year 3 – Ruby Chapman
Year 4 – Ben Faulkner
Year 5 – Piers Clouting
Year 6 – Sheila Wilson
who all received a £5 voucher.
Children in Bears and Giraffes were judged on their costumes and the
winners were Charlie Carver and Kye Cooper.
'Carriages' Tearoom opens at Emsworth Train Station
28 February 2014
In 2011, the Emsworth Residents Association discovered that the waiting room at Emsworth Station had been shut for a number of years but was in sound condition with lovely Victorian flooring and benches. As a result, opening it up for the local community became a major project for the Emsworth Residents Association working alongside Southern Rail.
The pupil governors from each year group at Emsworth Primary School visited the waiting room and their designs were put forward to the Emsworth Residents Association and Southern Rail. They also planted up the beds and window boxes on the platform while work was going on in the station. At the same time, the much needed ramp on Platform 1 was built giving better access to pushchair and wheelchair users.
In 2012 the waiting room had been restored to its original splendour and was opened to the public, along with the public toilet. The waiting room on Platform 2 is so well used and appreciated by the public that there is talk of Southern Rail investing in another waiting room on Platform 1. When the waiting room officially opened to the public, it was a grand community event with a live band, many local dignitaries and rail users along with Year 4 (the current Year 6 children) all dressed in Victorian costume.
Ever since the waiting room was completed, a local couple have been trying to open a small café adjoining the waiting room. On Friday 28 February, ‘Carriages’ celebrated their opening and they have great plans for the future including hiring bikes on Platform 2 so that people can travel on the train and use the hire bikes to explore Emsworth and surrounding areas. The Key Stage 2 governors were invited to attend this opening and sample the cakes from the café!
The Emsworth Residents Association is very pleased that the station is now a much more welcoming place for visitors and locals. The local Brownie groups are now involved as well, refreshing the planters along the platform. This was such a wonderful opportunity for the children at Emsworth Primary School to become so involved in a local community project. Let’s hope there are many more!
