Red Nose Day Cake and Jewellery Sale

Ruby and Grace together with Lottie and Ateya managed to raise the amazing figure of £298.74 selling their cakes and jewellery for Red Nose Day. The ideas for fundraising were all their own and they organised the sale themselves. Well done girls!

Children’s Parade Workshop

Please come along after school this Monday 3.15 – 5.00 and join in with making props for the Children’s Parade. The workshop will take place in the hall and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

School Library Developments

Ms Stewart with the help of Ms Balmer and a group of parents is in the process of making improvements to our school library. Ms Stewart is using funds raised by the School Association to buy comfy, colourful and good quality furniture and equipment and will also improve our book stocks. We hope in the future to run an afterschool book club and other library focused clubs when the refurbishment is complete.

Year 3 Morris Dancers at the Dome

Year 3 performed their excellent Morris dance to the whole school this morning. They received a rapturous round of applause from all of us. They will perform their dance at the Dome in front of an enormous audience on Monday evening as part of the Brighton Schools Lets Dance festival. Tickets are still available from the Dome box office. Good luck Year 3!

Year 6 Get Vocal!

Year 6 enjoyed a vocal workshop with the vocal coach from Little Mouth choir. She was very impressed with the children’s singing and is encouraging children to join the Little Mouth choir at Blatchington Mill school. The choir runs on a Monday during term time 4.00 – 5.30. Parents and carers can join the Big Mouth choir which runs at the same time and same venue.

Peer Support Training

Children in Years 3 and 4 are soon to be offered the opportunity to take part in Peer Support training. Trained Peer Support children are able to provide support by listening and helping individuals to think their problems through and consider their options. A letter will be going home shortly with children from years 3 and 4 with further information on what’s involved. Children can then make a decision if this is something they would be interested in doing.
