Blue Friday

As part of Anti-Bullying week next week, Friday 20th of November will be ‘Blue Friday’. This means that the children and adults in the school will be encouraged to wear their finest blue clothes, hats, accessories etc. We have 50 blue wrist bands to give to those children with the craziest blued outfit.

During Anti-Bullying week we will be addressing issues of friendship, focusing on ‘Staying Safe in Cyberspace’ in particular.

Year 5 and Year 6 Visit Darwin Exhibition

Today Years 5 and 6 have had an exciting day at the Darwin Exhibition at the Natural History Museum in London. As they were still on the trip at the time of going to press, we will have more information about the visit in next week’s Friday News.

‘Baby Rufus’

There has been a new addition to reception class. On Monday they went on an adventure to Churchill Square. As well as having fun travelling up and down on the escalators they also bought a doll  as part of their ‘All About Me’ learning journey. They have named him Rufus and have been very pleased to welcome him into their class. Mrs. Denyer would like to say a big thank you to the parents who bought tickets for naming the doll.

Thunder Kids

Last Saturday saw the first Thunder Kids morning club for Dads, Male Carers and their children. Although it was a small group for this first time, all who attended had a great time and enjoyed the activities on offer. The next Thunder Kids will take place at Middle Street on Saturday 5th December between 9.00 and 12.00 am. It is a really good opportunity for the children to have a go at a variety of activities with their dads and carers. If you are interested in joining the group for the next session or would like some more information then please come and have a chat with Tim Owers, one of our learning mentors. Alternatively you are able to just drop in on the morning.

Latest Score

Yesterday evening our football team played against a team at St. Marks’ School in very bad weather. Although they lost 5 -3, Mrs. Denyer, who accompanied the team yesterday said that she felt that their football skills and team work is improving all the time.

Christmas Concert

This year our choir will be taking part in the Brighton and Hove Christmas concert at the Brighton Centre. It takes place on Monday 7th December at 7.00 pm. Parents/Carers of children in the choir will receive a letter asking them if they would like to buy any tickets, but if there is anyone else who would like to come along please come to the office for a letter to reserve tickets.

Christmas Show

As reported in last week’s Friday News the school Christmas show takes place this year on Thursday 10th December in the afternoon at the Sallis Benny theatre.  Miss Silkowski has the unenviable task of auditioning the KS2 children for the main parts of the production. This is a really tricky job and unfortunately some children may be disappointed with the final decision. She has asked me to ensure that the children know that everybody who wants to have a part will be able to have one.

Christmas Fair

The Christmas fair will be on Thursday 3rd December from 3.00 – 5.00pm.
