Hamble, Medway and Arun have finally returned back from their trip to Australia from last week. They all had a great time and the inflight entertainment was superb! The year 6 ground handlers did a great job with their bags and the cabin crew worked very hard with the in flight refreshments! The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learnt many facts about Australia and the culture. Here are some photos of their flight.
On Wednesday our netball team played in a tournament. We lost the first game against Shelley A-team but then won against Billingshurst B-team. The girls played well as a team; they demonstrated great passing skills and understanding of the game. The members of the team were: Molly, Olivia A, Olivia K, Emily, Verity, Coco and Lillie. Our coach, Mrs Harvey was a fantastic team motivator and we are very lucky to have her on board! All the girls were excellent representatives for the school and we are looking forward to the next tournament at the end of November.

Our Christian Value is Respect and Reverence. The children will be looking at how they can show respect for each other and adults in the school community and how they respect and value their own and other people’s belongings. They will also learn about how Christians respect God’s greatness and acknowledge how the world was created. Aspects of awe and wonder, surrender and sacrifice may also be covered in class
This week has been another busy week on the sports front. On Wednesday 20th children from Year 3 and 4 went to The Weald School to take part in a Multiskills Festival with 148 other children from different schools. We did 12 different events such as beanbags throwing, basketball, running with a cone, hockey, hurdle jumping and many more. We had so much fun and learnt lots of new skills at the same time.
Children in Medway and Arun have been busy writing their own riddles for the 'Little Riddlers' writing competition for 5-7 year olds. They really enjoyed entering and it gave a real purpose to their writing. It sparked plenty of enthusiasm and they were all able to come up with some great ideas. Prizes include gifts for pupils and money for the school. Entries will be posted off this week. Good luck everyone!
The children celebrated National Fitness Day on Wednesday with a range of sporting activities aimed at getting active and having fun. Hamble started the day with a 'Wake and Shake', Medway made different shapes with their bodies in gymnastics, Adur and Rother showed how much fun exercise can be and finally Arun class becoming frisbee experts.
Today we have welcomed a group from 'Off the Fence' that organise prayer and reflection spaces in school. The children have been involved in many activities where they can reflect about the big questions in life, say thank you to God for anything that makes them feel good about themsleves and to know how to say sorry.
I would like to say how lovely it has been welcoming so many children to our libraries over the summer holidays. Both Horsham and Southwater have been very busy and we’ve all had lots of fun! So many children did so well to reach the six book target and receive their medals. Children have until Saturday 16 September to collect their Big Friendly Read medal from their local library if they haven’t done so already.
Hope to see you again at the library soon!
Welcome back to a new school year. We would like to welcome some new staff to our team:
