Poetry Day

A group of Year 5 children are enjoying a day at Falmer School writing and performing their poetry. They will be joining children from other schools for the day.

More Plastic Bottles Please

We need more plastic bottles with lids. We need the bottles to make shakers for the Festival Parade. As you know our theme is ‘Brazilian Fruit’ and our colour scheme will be orange, yellow and green, the fruitier the better!

Cross Country

A group of energetic children have begun training for the Brighton Cross Country running event at Waterhall on Saturday 18th March. Ms Busby is kindly giving up time to be at the event and cheer the children on. We have some excellent runners so I’m sure they will do well.

Mobile Phones for Guide Dogs

Mrs Walker would like people to donate any old mobile phones you no longer use. The phones, whatever their condition are worth £3.50p to the Guide Dog association. The money made from the old phones, go towards the purchase and training of a Guide Dog for the blind. Please bring your old unwanted phones to the office and we will send them off.

Parent/Carer Group

Mr Owers and Mr Dew are now ready to invite you to a Parent/Carers Drop-in group on Thursday 16th March 2.00 – 3.00. which will take place in the Family room. The group is an informal opportunity for you to share ideas and strategies for supporting your child at home. Topics up for discussion can cover issues such as getting them off to bed, sleep worries, eating their greens, doing homework, transition to Secondary school etc. If you are interested please let the office know, as we are only able to accommodate 10 people. There will of course be tea and biscuits.

Polite Reminder

Please could all Parents/Carers wait in the playground when collecting children at the end of the day. We know it’s cold outside but we must ask you to remain outside as we need to keep corridors and the reception area clear for health and safety purposes. We are hoping to provide a shelter for Parents/Carers to use in the future if we are successful in our bid for Travel Plan funding.


A reminder for Years 4, 5 and 6 Parents/Carers that Basketball club on Thursday after school has finished for now.
