Year 5 Class Assembly

Family members are invited in to share the Year 5 class assembly next Friday 11th February at 9.00 a.m. in the hall.

Healthy Food Tasting

Next Wednesday, 9th February, the children in Year 5 are taking part in a “Fuel for Fun” workshop, aimed at promoting cooking healthy food, and having fun at the same time. This is all part of our Healthy Schools initiative. There will be an opportunity to taste some of the food they produce in the Year 5 classroom from 3.00 p.m. – everyone is welcome.

Left Handed Pen

Mrs Hadgkiss wanted me to tell you that she has found a very well designed pen that is particularly suitable for left handed writers. It is available from Webster’s Pen Shop. It costs £4.99, plus £1.99 for three cartridges, but if enough of you wanted to buy one for your child, then we could get a discount. Please let us know if you would be interested.

200th Anniversary

We are getting very excited about the school’s 200th anniversary that is coming up in September. Dave Dyer has been busy, with the help of some parents and Kate Richardson from Brighton Museum, researching and starting to organise some events to celebrate this milestone in our history. If you would like to get involved, in any way, please come along to a meeting here at the school at 9.00 a.m. on Monday 7th February.

School Association

There has been some interest in the idea of having two parent representatives from each class on the School Association, but do let me know if you want to get involved in this way.

A Day Out In London

Year 3 had such a lovely time in London yesterday, visiting the Britain at War Experience, and going on a very pleasant walk along the Thames. The children were all so well behaved, and really benefited from such a high level of parental help. We do appreciate the excellent support that we get from our parents with trips; it makes them so much more enjoyable for everyone.

Playground Improvements

A group of parents have met with Mary Noble and Nick Ebdon to think of ways to improve the playgrounds. They have come up with lots of interesting ideas. I will be meeting with the School Council next week to discuss the playgrounds. Over the weekend, it would be helpful if parents and carers could speak with the children to see if they can come up with any ways of making their playgrounds better. The children can then tell their class reps who can bring these ideas to the School Council.

Racing Stripes

Children in Years 2 and 4 enjoyed going to the cinema on Tuesday to see the new film Racing Stripes.

Yoga Club

Letters are coming home about Yoga classes for children at this school. There will be two classes each week, one for infants and one for juniors. Places will be limited to eight pupils per session, and will cost £8 for a four-week course. Classes for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will be on Tuesdays and for Years 3 – 6 on Wednesdays, starting after the half term holiday.

School Photographs

Individual and sibling photo’s were taken today; however, there are so many children off because of illness that the photographer will be returning on Monday 21st March to catch up with children who were away.
