Acting Head of School Update

It has been fantastic to welcome the children back after their Easter holidays - and we have even had a bit of sunshine as well!


The children have been demonstrating excellent behaviour, both in the classrooms and around the school this week. Everyone is trying to be the best version of themselves and there has been a calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school. Well done to everyone - and keep it up!


Our special friends from the Eastbourne Gardens Care Home visited our Nursery again this week (minus the bunny costumes!) to help our children plant seeds. I have heard a rumour that some super heroes may be visiting our Nursery very soon!


Year 5 were fortunate to receive a visit from John from the Table Top Foundation. They engaged in some food tastings and discussions around food groups. This project will continue over the coming months to teach our children about healthy foods, kitchen skills and jobs within the catering industry.


Children have been working hard across all classes this week and I have witnessed some fantastic art work again in Year 6 as they study their latest artist Laetitia Yhap. Some fantastic lessons were observed in Read Write Inc in Year1 and 2 this week as well. Children across the school have been completing their initial pop quizzes for their new units, which they will repeat again at the end to show how much they have learned.


This morning we had our usual celebration assembly, and the list of the 'Stars of the Week' winners can be found in this week's bulletin. Congratulations to Nightingale class for winning our Golden Lunchbox (for great lunchtime behaviour), Roper class for winning the term 4 class attendance voucher and to Ciaran Domican who won the individual attendance raffle. 


I would like to wish you all a fantastic weekend and we will look forward to seeing the children on Monday morning.


With my best wishes
