We will be having a Science day on Monday, 19 March 2018. During the day, pupils in years 1 to 6 will take part in a forensic workshop which will allow them to apply their science skills within real life. The pupils will find out that a crime has been committed and it will be their responsibility to piece together the evidence!
Pupils in Reception will be having their Science day on Monday, 12 March 2018, where they will be visiting Samphire Hoe. There will be more information to follow nearer the time.
Today, pupils have had an exciting workshop in school called Kidz Fit. Each class has had the opportunity; to take part in the workshop, they have been involved in some dance moves and exercises whilst learning how to keep fit and healthy.
Because of this workshop in school today, we have decided not to have our Celebration Assembly. It will be held on Monday.

La Classe Jaune performed their class assembly yesterday and this is what they thought about it……
Layla said, “It was really good, it wasn’t too short and it wasn’t too long. Everyone had the chance to say a line. My favourite part was saying ‘Mrs Waster was a drip’. It was really good performing in front of my mum. At the beginning I was really excited but when I saw everyone I got really anxious but I’m pleased I did it.”
Kirsty said, “I thought it was good. It was really funny. I found it funny watching everyone doing the actions to the water cycle song. I had a lot of fun. It is always nice to see my mum in the audience when I’m performing.”
Anthony said, “I found it quite funny, especially when Layla said ‘Mrs Waster was a drip.’ I enjoyed performing the water cycle song. We learnt a lot about the water cycle and how to save water. I was Mr Water Wisely.”
