Today in school, the children have been taking part in our 7 Billion Ideas 'World Changing IDEAS' programme which aims to inspire children to 'Think Big' and 'Dream Bigger' about the possibility of their ideas. This project has been set up and funded by our locality of schools and the Billingshurst Lions. The day consists of groups of children coming up with an idea that would change the world and then designing a prototype and pitching their idea to a group of judges. The winning idea in each school will then go on to a final to be held at The Weald school in October. Watch this space to find out which team will go through to the final. Thank you Lions -it's been a great day!

As part of their topic and science work, Mr Pannell came and talked to the children in Hamble and Medway about his job as a tree surgeon. They found out about different types of trees and how to care for them. The children spent time investigating different leaves, bark and fungi! They also learnt how to work out how old a tree is. It was a great way to bring their learning to life! Also, Medway would like to thank Dylan’s grandmother for coming in to talk about floristry and plants. The children loved their Snapdragon flowers and learnt about flower pressing.
On Wednesday 22nd June, the children in Reception, year 1,2 and 3 enjoyed a fabulous day out at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. The children enjoyed many of the attractions from iconic buildings and glasshouses to inspirational art collections and landscapes. One of the highlights was the new Hive scuplture designed by Wolfgang Buttress, which tells the plight of the honeybee and is surrounded by a beautiful meadow. It was nothing like our hive though!
