Thank you to all the parents who attended on Tuesday evening. I hope you all found it useful and if you haven’t already done so please can you return your evaluations. Thank you for all the very positive comments that we have received. I know many parents would welcome a maths meeting so I will try to put a date in the diary for the autumn term.
The Weald Locality Music Festival was last Monday evening at The Weald and what a wonderful evening it was! Everyone who was there really enjoyed the songs that took us on a journey of popular musical development. I have never seen The Weald Sports Hall quite so packed and believe there were over 300 children on the stage. Well done to all the 19 children in our choir who took part and to Mrs Bickerton who practised with them. A truly memorable occasion.
Wow! What a fantastic time we had on Friday. We started the day with Pre-school sports day which was really good. All the children joined in and there were so many parents and families of children in Pre-school there supporting the little ones. All the Pre-school children and staff enjoyed themselves running, throwing and jumping.
We then followed on with the school sports day. I hope that everyone enjoyed themselves and had fun. I certainly saw everyone joining in with the sporting activities and running their fastest. Well done to all four house teams, but particularly to Dragon who won! Sphinx came second, Griffin third and then Phoenix. Pictured above are the house captains of Dragon team.
Thank you to parents and staff who joined in with the races as well.
Year 6 enjoyed a visit to The Weald, where they have made a
'Jitterbug'. They constructed an electrical circuit with a
motor, which made their bug vibrate. They designed their
own imaginary bug shell to cover the circuit. It has
provided an excellent opportunity for those children due to
attend The Weald from September to get used to their
surroundings and meet some of the teachers. They are
looking forward to returning for another session.
The amount raised from the Summer Fair was £5544.00. An amazing total! Thank you to the very hard working committee who made the fair such a success and to everyone who supported us on the day. It really was a lovely day helped by the weather. All the children will benefit from the money raised.
Work will be starting soon on a new adventure trail for the field. This is being paid for by FOSSA from previous fundraising and it will be much enjoyed by all children.
Harrie and Holly from year 6 report on a special music day at Christ's Hospital School:
‘On Friday the 7th June 2013 a few people (Paige, Zoe, Harrie, Holly, James, Tilly, Charlotte M, Charlotte W and Amy) from our school went and enjoyed a fantastic music day at Christ's Hospital. It was great! All of the schools came together and were split into 3 groups: strings, woodwind and singers.
We all worked on our part in the piece we played. The piece we played was called “The Storm”. Two students from our school read a bit of the poem that went along side it! We had a fabulous lunch as well! Thank you Christ hospital for a great day!’
Mrs Bickerton was very proud of our children who performed so well in the magnificent Great Hall at Christ Hospital.
The School council have chosen the winner of the competition to decide which mosaic will be created by Mrs Petros. When it is finished it will be hung outside in the quiet area. Well done to Henry in Rother Class. Second place was a tricky decision. In the end it was agreed that Mrs Petros would amalgamate parts of the multiple winning designs into just one design for the mosaic. The mosaic will be a combination of designs by William, Bella, Rowan, Charlie C and Henry C from Hamble class, Well done to you all. I am sure the quiet area will look so much better with the two mosaics on the walls. I will let you know as soon as the first one is completed and on the wall so you can walk round and admire it.
Thanks to Emma Collins for these lovely photos. What a great day we had.
