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:
