Christmas Cards for St Patrick’s Night Shelter

Mr Collins, Lucy, Nicky and Amelia all from Year 5 visited St Patrick’s night shelter in Hove on Thursday to deliver Christmas cards made by the children. The cards were, very gratefully received by Father Allen, who will pass them on to the homeless people who use the shelter over Christmas.

Chemistry Show

Year 5 enjoyed a fun and exciting show at the Dome on Wednesday. The show was an ’explosive, colourful and fun science show demonstrating the power of chemistry’ hosted by Dr Hal Sosabowski from the University of Brighton.

Sponsored Pyjama Day

After reading an article about a charity that supports children with cleft palate and cleft lip, Hardy in Year 2 felt strongly that he wanted to do something to help. So today Hardy and Year 2 held a sponsored pyjama day. All the children and Year 2 staff wore their pyjamas to school today to raise money for the Smile Train charity. Well done Hardy and Year 2!
