Year 2 Class Assembly

This morning children from year 2 shared lots of interesting facts about the Arctic and the animals who live there and are in danger. The children dressed up, sang a wonderful song ‘on the first day of my holiday’. They stunned everyone with their amazing knowledge. Unfortunately I missed the assembly but Maddy from year 2 was able to tell me all about it. Thank you Maddy for your help.

Street Dance Taster

Children from years 2 to 6 enjoyed a street dance taster session on Thursday after school. The session was led by JP who is based at the Marina Studios, Brighton. There will be street dance after school club starting on Thursdays after half term. We certainly have some amazing dancers in our school.

Year 3 and Year 4 Enterprise Day

Children from years 3 and 4 are raising money and aiming to achieve their ambition of making a ‘world of Difference’. To do the above the children have planned their own enterprise projects. They are running a ‘Build a bead for those in need’ project for others in the school to join in with from Monday to Thursday. To join in children should make a contribution of £1. On Friday there are valentine treats to indulge in so children should bring along their donations to join in.

Years 3 and 4 are also holding a recycled clothing fashion show in aid of street children charities. Entrance fee is a suggested donation of £2 which includes a free drink and biscuit. The fashion show takes place at 2.00 till 3 on Tuesday afternoon next week.

Mr Dyer’s Afternoon Tea

The time is drawing even nearer and soon we will be saying goodbye to Mr Dyer. We will be holding a celebratory afternoon tea for Mr Dyer on Wednesday 12th February. The event will take place in the hall where there will be tea and cake for everyone. The PTA are organising the tea and I’m sure they would love some helpers so do let us know if you would like to help. If you are in touch with ex- families of the school who would like to come along to Mr Dyer’s afternoon tea please do invite them along. The tea is from 3.15 until 5.00.

Suitable Outdoor Clothing

Please could you ensure your child has warm and rainproof outerwear for playtimes. They also need to wear sturdy footware which can cope with this weather we are experiencing. You may wish to supply a change of shoes or wellingtons for wet playtimes. The children go out to play whatever the weather so they do need to be wrapped up warm in clothes which will keep them dry. Unfortunately we have no facilities for drying clothes etc.

Level 1 and 2 Cycle Training
