Year 4 Show Us the Way

We enjoyed a fabulous assembly this morning performed by Year 4. They played instruments and danced for us. The children composed the accompanying instrumental and choreographed the dance themselves. They based their assembly on the novel Varjak Paw. Well done Year 4 you were brilliant!

Disco, Zumba, Cakes and More for Martlets

We have raised over £500 for the Martlets this week. We have had zumba, a cake sale, disco dancing and dressing in sports outfits to help raise money. The money collected was converted into 5 pence pieces. The bags of 5 pences were then taken to Woodingdean Primary school by Ms Busby and a group of children, where each coin was placed on to an Olympic ring along with 5 pences collected by other schools in Brighton and Hove. There should be a photograph appearing soon in the Argus of the Olympic ring and you may have seen in the Argus a photograph earlier in the week of the year 1 and 2 Zumba dancing. We joined in with this fund-raising event in memory of Karen Sinclaire a teaching assistant at our school who very sadly died last year.

Bethy in year 1 has lost her pink spotty lunch box, if you come across it please return to the school office. Thank you.


Look through lost property, and take what’s yours, take home all your lunch boxes and put bags and rubbish in the bin, check cloakroom areas for coats and other clothing and take home. Please do this before the last week of term and don’t forget PE kits too.
