Thinking Walk

Year 5 enjoyed exploring the woods and surrounding area at Stanmer park. They collected mini beasts and other interesting objects as part of their Charles Darwin studies which forms part of the ‘Walkabout’ learning journey. Year 6 enjoyed the same experience earlier in the week but with more challenging weather to deal with. They still had a great time though.

Thunder Kids is a Saturday morning club for children, dads and male carers. The club is free and is ideal for children aged 5 to 10.

The first session runs at Middle Street on Saturday November 7th  (tomorrow)starting at 9.00 and ending at 12.00. Drop in for the morning if you are interested. Want to know more? Then turn over.

Contact Information Update

You will find attached to the Friday News a form that everyone must complete. We are currently updating contact information for all families. Please ensure you supply us with correct addresses, telephone and emergency contact numbers. We run a texting service so please include your correct mobile phone number. In cases of emergency it is important that we are able to contact someone immediately. In situations when a child has not been collected from school and we are not able to contact someone we may be left with the only option of contacting social services. An option we would like to avoid so please help us by supplying up to date information.

Message from Mr Brazil

I’m not saying why just yet but you may like to watch The Wizard of Oz on channel 5 this Sunday at 3.00pm.

Children’s Parade

Our theme for the May children’s festival parade is the ‘polar region’. If you are interested in forming part of a parent and carer group to help prepare for the parade please contact Mr Brazil as soon as possible via the school office or catch him around school and he will tell you more. We do need lots of helpers so don’t be shy even if you haven’t been involved before please get involved now and help us. We can’t do it without you.
