On Friday 27th we spent the day at Horndean Technology College. Why? We formed a team of 4 year 6s – Molly, Luna, Sid and Oscar – to take part in an annual maths competition. There were 9 other teams competing in the different maths challenges which included; the shuttle round, the relay round, the speed round and the group round. Speed and group both involved the whole team working together whereas the others involved splitting into two pairs. This meant one pair solved the first question and the second pair solved the next question. In the shuttle round this was tricky as there were four questions to solve in the eight minutes given and for the second question you needed the answer to the first. For example, the answer to question 1 was x and question 2 would be x/2+x/9+x/7=
In the end, with a mixture of our expert skills and speedy brains we came out second. This made us really proud because we were up against some tough competition.

On Wednesday the 28th June, 2017, Herne competed and completed the Alton College Maths Challenge. A team of 4 mathematicians – Jamie Tickner, Gracie Bishop, Jemma Green and Ben Piper - set out with TPS ready for the adventure to begin…
Once we arrived, we split up into two teams, TPS and Herne – Primary and Secondary – this didn’t last for long though, you had to change who was in your team almost every round. Overall there were three rounds, one was a group round, another was a number crossword and the last was an interactive one. After all of these challenges, we awaited the announcement, we could not believe our ears when they awarded Herne first place! In total 16 schools took part, and out of 16 our school won.
Surprise painted our faces as we got up to receive our reward, an astonishing trophy, Alton College badges and a certificate from the Mayor of Alton and the Principal. It was challenging, but most of all – fun, we are so glad that we attended this challenge.
An 'awesome' time was had by all at Butser Ancient Farm last week. The weather was great and what a wonderful setting to immerse ourselves in the history of Britain.
A big thank you to all parents who were able to attend the Ironbridge information evening last night. We hope it answered all your questions, however please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.

On Wednesday our Girls’ Football team travelled to Basingstoke to play Oakley Junior School in the final of the Hampshire Cup. The game could not have been closer. Oakley went into an early lead and our girls left it till the last second of the game to snatch an equaliser. The game went into extra time and then into penalties, where we finally defeated them 4-3. With 32 teams entering this Cup, this is an incredible achievement by our girls and the whole school community could not be prouder of you. A big ‘thank you’ to all the parents who came and showed their support at the final.

What better way to tell you what an amazing experience Fairthorne was for our year 5 pupils than the children themselves. Below are just a few postcards the children wrote, capturing their many adventures during this three day residential trip. To view the photo gallery, please click here
