A big thank you to the Summer Fair Committee and all parents, staff and helpers who worked so hard to make the day go well. This year the weather delivered a cracking day.
Well done to our netball team who played very well in the heat on Thursday after school against Kirdford and Plaistow. We won 13-1.The football played equally as well and came close to equalising. The final score was 2-1. Well done to both teams and Thank you to Mrs Barber and Mr Barton for organising teams, squash and biscuits.
The years 3 and 4 football team played very well on Friday night at BBH and although didn’t win any matches played as a team and showed great team spirit. I could see a huge improvement from the last time they played in the tournament so well done!
The children thoroughly enjoyed world book day 2013, coming in dressed as a favourite character from a book.
The whole school topic this term is based around authors and writers; each class has been studying a different author and texts.

Medway Class – Alfie by Shirley Hughes
Arun Class – Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl
Adur Class – Charlie and the chocolate factory by Roald Dahl
Rother Class Skelling by David Almond.
Children designed bookmarks for the world book day competition and also took part in a book exchange, where they could bring in one of their books to swap with someone else.
The teachers also joined in the fun also appearing in a variety of costumes from well known books for the day!
Our Netball team are playing really well and are second in the league after playing again on Wednesday. They are competing against 19 other schools, most of whom are much larger than ours. Well done to the team; Harrie, Ben, Holly, Madeline, Jasmine, Georgia, Ella, Emilia and Dom. Thank you to Mrs Barber for her coaching skills. They will be playing again this Wednesday at Broadbridge Heath so I will keep you informed of their progress!
Mr Barton took Harry, Ben, Harrie, Dom, Zoe, Jasmine, Holly, Madeline, Georgia and George to Broadbridge Heath for a hockey tournament. Mr Barton says, "The children did really well and played brilliant hockey. We played 4 games, won 1, drew 1 and lost 2 and these were close losses. I am really proud of all the children who played."
Here is Luke Temple opening our library with the school councillors. The children were enthralled by his story telling and many children bought his books on the Thursday. If you did want to buy one and missed out on the opportunity of Luke signing it then please let me know and I am sure we can ask Luke to help us out.
I would like to say thank you to Mrs Taylor who organises the enrichment mornings. They are always themed to suit the curriculum and are proving to be very popular with the children. When the children weren’t with Luke they were producing some fantastic art canvases for our library. When they are hung up I will invite you all to come and look at them. They are wonderful.
