During the week beginning 11.3.24 schools across the country celebrated British Science Week. At FBA we began the week with an assembly where Mrs Gray introduced this year’s theme- Time. We watched a time lapse video looking at how our world has changed over the last 30 years and used a sand timer to time how many jumping jacks we could do in 30 seconds! Over the week children took part in scientific activities related to time. We hope you enjoy hearing about it and looking at the photos. We had a great time!

Just a reminder that we are asking children to join the ‘Rock Your Socks’ campaign for the Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association on World Down Syndrome Day.


To celebrate, children are encouraged to wear colourful, individual and funky socks into school on Thursday 21st March 2024.

Wow! What an incredible World Book Day at Flying Bull! It was so special to see all the children bringing their characters to school and sharing their love of reading with each other. From the Book and Breakfast in Reception, to the Booknic, to the Book Snuggle in Nursery to the Bedtime Stories at the end of the day, it was incredible. Key Stage 1 enjoyed time in the library and learned new skills on how to use it, while Key Stage 2 enjoyed focusing on their favourite genre and reading their way. From recipes, biographies, comics, mysteries, poetry and Guinness Book of Records, the key stage was abuzz with book talk. Year 6 shared their love of reading with the Portsmouth community by heading out into the world to be 'Reading Fairies' and drop books. Already one has been found and taken to South Africa!

We are celebrating World Book Day on Thursday 7th March. FREE outfits are available today from 10am at the Central Library!

World Book Day is coming on 7 March and if you're looking for an outfit - this could help you out!

HIVE Portsmouth have got costumes galore, from Paddington to Peter Pan, and pirates to princesses, mainly for kids aged between three and 10. Pop along and grab an outfit FOR FREE.

Come to Central Library from 10am on Friday (1 March) to pick one up. This is expected to be busy and costumes will be given out on a first come, first served basis - one costume per family and they are not able to hold any outfits or to accommodate specific requests.

All are welcome. If you have any outfits you’d be able to donate in return for HIVE Portsmouth to give out next year they’d be very grateful.
