Tomb Raiders

Year 3 children have been busy investigating who raided their Egyptian tomb. Today in assembly they told us all about their detection work and that the mystery remains unsolved. You can read all about it overleaf. Thank you Year 3 for a fabulous assembly. Good luck with your investigations. It really wasn’t me!

Year 5 and Year 6 Evacuated

Year 5 and Year 6 caught the train this morning at Brighton station. They were met at their destination by a stern gentleman who was the billeting officer. Later the host families haggled over which children to choose. The children have talked a lot about how it must have felt to have been parted from your family and often from your siblings too. The children had an amazing experience today thanks to the fantastic parents who played very important roles in this drama. Thank you to the staff and all the parents who dressed up in role and helped. Thank you, also to Mr Williams for your very much appreciated voicemail about the how wonderful the children were today.

Family Seal

We are pleased to announce that after half term we are offering parents and carers another opportunity to learn more about Family SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning) following the success of our last two courses. The course is designed to develop positive links between home and school and its aim is to support children in developing social and emotional skills. The course runs over 6 weeks and takes place in school. The course is run by our learning mentors: Tim and Alan. If you are a parent of a child in years 4, 5 or 6 and are interested in finding out more then join us for an introductory session on Tuesday 5th March at 2.15. The session takes place in the Family Room. If you want to know more in the meantime please contact Tim or Alan via the school office.

Spelling Survey

Please find attached a spelling survey for you to complete and return to school. It would be great if you could return it by next Thursday but if you don’t have time after half term will do.

Wetlands Visit

Years 1 and 2 thoroughly enjoyed their visit this week to the Wetlands Trust in Arundel. The children wanted to find out more about wetland habitats as part of their Wild and Wonderful learning journey.

Seagulls and Water

We were expecting our Albion players in this week with Southern Water to begin the ‘World of Water’ project with a Key Stage 2 class. Obviously Gus (the Albion manager) had other ideas for his players following a poor game on Saturday, clearly wanting the players to focus on training! So the project and workshop will take place next Thursday instead.

On-Time Teds

This week’s Key Stage 1 winners are Reception with 1 late mark and in Key Stage 2 the winners are Year 3 with 2 late marks. Well done to both classes for being very punctual.

Spring Half Term Break

We finish for the spring half term break on Friday 15th February and return to school on Monday 25th February.

Easter Break

The last day of term is Thursday 28th March and return to school for the summer term on Monday 15th April.
