Years 3 and 4 meet Henry VIII

The children in Years 3 and 4 had a wonderful time at Hampton Court on Monday. They met Henry VIII and found out all about the Tudors and that period in history. Many apologies for the missing text re: confirming return time. Monday was a difficult day as you can imagine. Luckily though the coach was on time for once

Congratulations to….

Callum in Year 3 who won the under 8s Sussex County Chess Tournament. Well done Callum!

Thank you

It has as you can imagine been a sad and difficult week for us all. It has however been made easier by the many kind words from so many of you. The children in particular have been very thoughtful in their messages written in the book of condolences. I know that Karen Sinclaire would have been very touched by so many lovely thoughts and words of appreciation and it pleases us to see how very special she was to everyone who knew her. I hope too that those thoughtful words will help Karen’s family in the months to come.  If you wish to leave a message in the book of condolences it will remain open until next Friday.

Christmas Break

We finish for the Christmas holidays on Friday 16th December and return to school in the New Year on Wednesday 4th January.
