Lets Dance!

Year 3 performed their Morris Dance at the Brighton and Hove Schools Dance Festival on Monday evening at the Dome. They received loud applause and many appreciative comments were made by the audience and other schools performing at the festival. Well done Year 3! You were brilliant!

V.E. Day Celebrations

Years 5 and 6 celebrated the end of their ‘We’ll Meet Again’ Learning Journey with a VE Day street party. The Argus joined us and published a photo in today’s Argus of Ariel and Georgia dressed in clothes from the era. Children used recipes to bake food for the celebration and the playground was decorated with bunting and 40s music was played. We also enjoyed Nina’s Mum and Dad dancing the Jitterbug for us.

Farm Shop Celebrations

Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children have held a Farm Shop in the hall today. They sold a variety of goods all made by the children. The Farm Shop forms part of the end of their ‘On the Farm’ Learning Journey celebrations.
