St Birinus Primary School
Dorchester St. Birinus Church of England School is a small village school where we seek to provide a happy, caring and stimulating environment with opportunities for all children to develop their potential as joyful, confident, proud, healthy and independent individuals with key skills for life.

As you can appreciate, there is only so much information that can be gained from our website, however there is no substitute for visiting the school. If you would like to see St Birinus Primary School in action, I would be delighted to show you around. Please contact the school office on 01865 340081 to arrange a visit.

  • Harvest Festival

    Yesterday saw our second Harvest Festival in the Abbey since we re-started having our service during the school week.  It was great to see so many parents who were able to join us.  I was very proud of all the readers, who did an amazing job – well done!  A big thank you to everyone, who was able to bring some foodstuff to support the Wallingford Food Bank – I know it will be greatly appreciated.

  • Isle of Wight Day 4

    Another good nights sleep by all – it’s definitely getting harder to get some people up in the morning!!  Another cooked breakfast and we were ready for the day!

    By 10am this morning we were back on the beach playing in the sea, building sandcastles and practicing our circus skills!  The weather was so spectacular it felt like a summer holiday! Finally about 12 o’clock we headed back up to the site to add more wet sandy clothes to our washing pile, changing them for dry ones (they’ll soon be dirty too!) and headed off to problem solving games!

    After lunch the activity they are very excited about  going to do Side-by-Side – this is where they get to drive Motorsport buggies around a course.  This will be followed off by a game of volleyball before dinner and a mini-Olympics this evening.

    It has been fantastic to see everyone trying…

  • Isle of Wight Day 3

    Day 3

    Day 2 obviously did create some tired children, this morning it was the alarm that woke us up.   After another great breakfast, we headed for a fantastic morning at the beach especially with the wonderful weather.  Everyone had a super time body boarding after finally squeezing ourselves into our wetsuits – it certainly was not easy! 

    The afternoon included archery and abseiling for the different groups – it is often trying to keep track with what each group has completed.   After the evening meal, there was a long walk to follow – let’s hope we all keep going.  

    I am sure with all this activity, there will be no issues with sleeping tonight

    Until tomorrow…

    Day 1

    We had a brilliant first day – the ferry crossing was blue sky and sunshine and we all enjoyed standing out on the deck watching the other boats.  Once at Kingswood we found our rooms and after quite a bit of struggling but in the end lots of teamwork everyone managed to make their beds – putting sheets onto the mattresses and duvets in covers was definitely our first challenge!!

    Splitting into two groups we then took part in our first two activities – Buggy Build and Aeroball.  Those doing Buggy build created huge Flintstone like vehicles out of pioneering poles, planks and barrels – we are now all good at tying clove hitches and double figure of eight knots!  Each group took turns to transport two team members at a time around the field and finally we raced our buggies.  The Aeroball is a game of basket…
