Pirates, Tinkerbell and Peter Pan

We’ve all had fun today dressing up as book characters. The children came in a variety of excellent costumes. Some were a bit hot by the end of the day in their furry costumes. The staff theme was Peter Pan. We had lots of pirates and Mr Smart enjoyed dressing up as Tinkerbell. I’ve been rather pleased with my outfit as Peter Pan. Green is obviously my colour! Mr Brazil has especially enjoyed the day as he had a head full of hair!

Cool! A 60s Festival

Years 5 and 6 had a groovy afternoon at their 60’s festival in the style of Woodstock. They prepared lots of delicious food and made t shirts and various other items to sell at the festival. They got into the 60s groove by dressing up in psychedelic clothes and saying ‘peace man’ and holding up two fingers, in the appropriate way, obviously. Well done years 5 and 6 I know how hard you have worked to make sure your festival was a success. Thanks to all the parents too who have helped with preparations and lending their clothes to the children. You’re all just so groovy!

Family SEAL Group

Parents and children attending our Family SEAL group on Thursday afternoons are having fun and enjoying the opportunity to talk about their experiences as parents and working on activities with their child. The group is a great place to chat through issues and gain support as a parent. More groups will run in the future so do look out for the next group in the Friday News.

Preston Manor Experience of Life Long Ago

Year 3 enjoyed their experience this week of working as servants and maids at Preston Manor. They learnt the different cleaning methods and cooking techniques from the past. They found out firsthand what life was like living and working in a grand house and just how strict the working conditions were long ago.

Let’s Dance

Year 3 will be performing at the Dome for the Brighton and Hove Schools dance festival. Their dance performance is the evening of 22nd March.

On- Time Teds

This week’s Key Stage 1 winners are Year 2 with 1 late mark and in Key Stage 2 the winners are Year 5 with only 2 late marks.  Well done to both classes for being so very punctual. I made a mistake in last week’s Friday News. I reported that year 3 and 4 won the On-Time Teds when in actual fact it was Year s 3 and 5. Please accept my apologies Year 5. Sorry.

Easter Break

We finish for the Easter break on Friday 30th March and return to school on Tuesday 17th April.
