Our Green Dragons showed round our Green Flag assessor, Chris, on Thursday 26th May. We are pleased to announce that we are retaining our Green Flag status! Well done to all the Green Dragons that have been keeping us on our toes to look after our environment. The Green Dragons would also like to mention a competition called Spot a Pot. This is to encourage parents to register plastic they are recycling. We could win a prize to the Ford recycling plant if enough parents register their recycling! It is really easy to do!
Last week, many children from year 3, 4, 5, and 6 attended a cross country event at The Weald. There were many races in which the children took part, with Thomas Welch and Amy Kenyon doing very well, achieving a position in the top three in their individual races. Thomas Brown also did well coming in 6th place in his individual race. Well done to all the children that took part.
Huge congratulations to Phoebe Webb, who managed to raise £45.25 by selling her little knitted hat/egg cosies and pen toppers. She had spent the last few weeks busily knitting her goods in preparation and sold out more or less instantly! Phoebe did this all herself without any help and all for a brilliant cause. I think we have an early entry for The Apprentice – Lord Sugar watch out!
I am delighted to inform you that we have been awarded the West Sussex Dyslexia Aware School Award. A letter will be coming later this week with more details, but I would like to say a very big thank you to Mrs Mullineux for all her hard work and dedication. She had to put an enormous amount of time and effort into collating all the information and evidence required. As a school we were already working on the standards we had to meet, so this confirms our commitment to good dyslexia practice.
The Year 6 played in a football tournament at BBH after school on Friday and Mrs Cole was delighted with the team who played really well with every match being incredibly close. We won 1, drew 2 and lost 3. Well done to Henry, Will, Reece, Liam, Ollie.
Thank you again to Mrs Cole for supporting the team.
Mrs Cole took Ollie B, Will, George, Reece, Ella, Tilly, Alice, Henry and Toby and to a cricket tournament last week.
Although we didn’t win many matches this was the first time they had played as a team and before our cricket coaching had started. As always we played with great sportsmanship and Mrs Cole was very pleased with the team.
Thank you to Mrs Cole for coaching the team during the afternoon.
Mrs Cole took a group of year 3 children to The Weald on Wednesday for a locality schools cross country competition.

Well done to Declan, Deacan, Molly, Lou-Lou, Rowan, Paige, Monty, Ollie, Olivia and Sonny.
