Today Slinfold School all had a turn in their classes to play the drums. All of the drums came from Brazil, and some very kind drum teachers came to teach every class drum rythms. There were several different types of drums.
All of the children made a lot of noise and had loads of fun – we all hope you enjoyed yourself. The workshop caught a lot of the pupils' attention, and we are sure that they all would love to do it again.
School Council have made their first decision that Slinfold School will be hosting a Jeans for Genes day this Friday 20th September. You can wear any sort of denim. If you decide to wear Jeans then you need to bring in one pound for charity. We hope you all have fun!
School council have been chosen. We have our chair Georgie, our secretary Darcy and our class representatives are, Ethel year six, Aiden and Ella year five, Wilf in year four, Paris and Bailey in year three, Archie and Declan in year two and Hugo in year one.
Our new School Council had their first meeting on the 11th of september, and we will let you know of any further decisions been made.
This week Rother are performing their end of year production, Time Lord. Yesterday afternoon they performed to the rest of the school and families with toddlers. Today is their big night!
I just want to say how impressed I was when I watched the show with the school yesterday. Brilliant acting and speaking; fabulous singing; amazing dancing and wonderful costumes! It was clear you had all put a lot of effort into rehearsing to give such a polished performance. And well done to George and Preston who calmly stood in for major parts at the last minute.
Recently Harrie in Year 6 got herself and Slinfold School mentioned on the Radio 2 Chris Evans Breakfast Show. Here's what she told us about how it happened:
"We woke up in the morning to the alarm which is the Chris Evans breakfast show, and he was talking about St George's day. He said that no one seemed to celebrate it much. So I decided to text him to tell him that Mrs Hine, our head teacher, had said we could all wear our Beaver, Cub and Scout uniforms to school as St George is also the patron saint of Scouting. We listened out while we got ready for school, and my mum shouted that he was reading my message. It was very exciting!"
Listen to Chris Evans reading out Harrie's message.
Sorry it's been so long for us to get something up on the page. On Thursday 7th March it is World Book Day so you can come to school dressed as your favourite book character! On Monday Rother are going to the Hawth to perform their dance!
Happy Valentines day! we have lots of exciting news for you today! Yesterday we had a author come in for a wonderful enrichment morning planned by Rother class's TA Mrs Taylor. Luke Temple was the name of the author that came to show us about his 2 new books Ghost Post and Doorway To DangerToday he came in to sell and sign books we wanted to buy. They were very good!
On Wednesday afternoon we had a medieval banquet. We celebrated all of our knighthoods (gold, silver and bronze). In order to get our knight hoods we had a few weeks to complete challenges. We had a physical challenge, a knowledge challenge and a responsibility challenge. Once we had been knighted we had a feast on wine (blackcurrant juice) and bread. We all had a great time! We were entertained by some jugglers from Rother class. The jugglers were: Harrie, Jazzie, Ben, Georgie and Mrs Burnell.
