Amazing Art Week

The children have been very busy with a variety of exciting art based activities throughout the week. The range of class-based activities and workshops has been wonderful.

Six children have been creating a “Shrek 2″ mural at the Odeon cinema, Year 3 were treated to a workshop on Aboriginal art, children in Years 2, 3 and 4 created screen prints with the help of two parents. Year 2 and Year 6 children enjoyed a visit to Drusilla’s to inspire their art work. Year 1 children had a handling session from the museum service to inspire their wonderful butterflies.

Yet again, the support from parents and carers throughout the week has been outstanding, thank you to everyone who has helped the children get so much out of the week. A big thank you, also, to Debs Knight for organising the whole event, and all members of staff for facilitating Art Week.

You should have received an invitation from your child to visit the exhibition in the hall. Classes will be viewing at the following times next Monday.

Well done Lois Hoff

I am delighted to report that Lois, in Year 4 has won a competition to have her design printed on a litter bin for the school. Her “Bin Monkey” will hopefully encourage everyone to be more litter aware.

Walking to School

I was very impressed to hear the Aaron in Year 4 and Ben in Reception have walked to school on several occasions – they live over 3 miles away!

A Strappy Issue

A reminder that children must not wear strappy tops to school, please ensure that all children have their shoulders covered whilst at school. Also, a reminder that flip flops and shoes without backs or back straps are not acceptable in school for safety reasons.

During the hot weather, children will need sun hats, and it is even more important that they have drinking water bottles in school. Thank you.

Sports Day

We have decided that Reception class will join The Nursery for their Sports day this year, a letter should have come home about this. The rest of the school will have Sports Day at Withdean Stadium on Thursday 1st July. A letter with further details will come home shortly.

Equalities Meetings

There will be two meetings about inclusion and equalities issues at the school on Wednesday 16th at 9.00 a.m. and Thursday 17th June at 2.15 p.m. Sorry about the error with the dates in the last Friday News.

Class Photographs will be next Friday 18th June.
