What a busy couple of weeks we’ve had. The children, as always, have been working hard and enjoying their learning. Today in Achievement Worship we saw some fantastic handwriting that some children have been working on and some superb writing about Pompeii. Equally impressive was a short animation based on the story of Romulus and Remus that Rother class are working on. Luke W and Ollie M are sure to be the next film makers of the future! Six hundred and forty shots to make a 50 second animation takes patience and great perseverance. Skills that are key in being successful. Well done to them! When they are finished we will post them on the school website and on our Twitter feed.
The end of term is rapidly approaching and it’s time to say goodbye to our interim Headteacher, Mrs
Leadbetter-Simms. I would like to thank her on behalf of the governors for all her work at Slinfold School
since February and to wish her well in her new post in Cranleigh. We also welcome back Ms Phibbs from
her maternity leave.
I so enjoyed watching all the children perform and sing, with such obvious enjoyment and enthusiasm, in
yesterday’s KS1 Nativity and the Carol Service in church in the evening. It was a lovely way to end a busy
and productive term. It just remains for me to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and
Peaceful New Year and I look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Wow - what a week! We are so proud of the children in Hamble and Medway! I'm sure you will agree that they were all super stars. It's quite daunting standing on stage with lots of faces staring at you but they did it with such enthusiasm. Thank you for all your support learning lines, preparing costumes and listening to the songs again and again and...!
On Monday 10th December 2018, we attended a Weald School hockey tournament. We played against Barns-Green and won the first match but lost the second match so both teams were awarded three points each. Mr Meany has put both teams through to the finals in January.
Whilst the other teams were playing we were able to get some general practise and learn some new tricks and skills. Everybody who went loved the experience and we hope to win a few games in January.

On the 6th of December 2018 the whole school attended a Christingle service.
How to make a Christingle:
The cocktail sticks represent the 4 corners of the world and the 4 seasons.
The fruit or sweets represent the living things of our world.
The ribbon represents Jesse’s blood.
The candle represents that Jesus is the light of our world.
Last but not least, the tinfoil is only there for safety.
Everybody enjoyed the Christingle service, we raised an amazing total of £128.40 for The Children’s Society
so a big thank you to everyone who donated their coins.

On Wednesday 5th December we gave a zumba performance to our parents. Over the last term we have been learning different dances to five songs. We really enjoyed performing the Cha Cha Cha and Human to our parents. We want to thank Kat our zumba teacher for all her hard work. We had a lot of fun performing.
On Tuesday 4th December the choir went to Wellcross Grange nursing home to sing Christmas carols to the residents. They all joined in with the singing and really enjoyed it. Afterwards, we went and met the residents who were very friendly and jolly. We can't wait to go and sing to them again. The staff also gave us biscuits and squash.

During Adur Class violin lessons each week we have been taught how to play four different notes, we have really enjoyed this great opportunity to play an new instrument. On Tuesday 27th November we performed fabulously to our parents. Our fantastic teacher, Miss Hester was really nice and patient and many of us hope to carry on playing the violin in the future.

Hamble and Medway had a special visit from Isabella at Drama4ALL this week. We found ourselves suddenly at the Circus alongside a clown! Unfortunately we were not there to watch a show, we had to help the clown on his mission. The children spent their session searching for the clowns smile. Luckily their cheekiness (eating the clowns pizza when he wasn't looking!) made him smile at the very end of the session.
We were really proud of all the children participating and their ability to listen and follow lots of fast instructions.
