Last Friday the NSPCC delivered their Speak out,Stay safe asembly to share information with your child about how they can keep themselves safe from harm and get help if they have any worries. We also supported the NSPCC charity by wearing green for Buddy. A big thank you to all the children and parents who donated, we raised a total of £138.17. Well done to everyone!
On Tuesday the 1st October an amazing Paralympic wheel-chair rugby player visited our school to talk about the difficulties he had to overcome to be able to play rugby. He taught us how to persevere, to keep going even when things get hard in life. He also taught us how to challenge ourselves and set goals. Aaron Phipps’ favourite sport is wheelchair rugby. He has also climbed Kilimanjaro with his dad and a team of friends to make sure he got up safely. It was an amazing task for someone who has lost both legs. He inspired everyone.

On Thursday October 3rd we celebrated poetry with our children's grandparents for National Poetry Day.
We recited The Owl and the Pussy Cat by Edward Lear at in the school hall with all the children.
This week, Medway and Hamble class had an exciting trip to Warnham Nature Reserve. The children had the opportunity to observe animals closely in different habitats while pond dipping and meadow sweeping. They went deep into the woods in search for minibeasts and had fun describing different sounds they could hear and textures they could feel. Finally they got to make a lovely wild flower card to take home.

On May 2nd and 3rd Year 4 went on our overnight trip to Lodge Hill, we did lots of activities including zip lining, rifle shooting, go-karting and low ropes. It was quite challenging but really good fun. The food was really yummy! On Thursday evening we went for an evening hike it was getting a little bit dark. When we got back we had hot chocolate and biscuits and shared our teddies with each other. We had a fantastic time and can't wait for the next residential. By Daisy
What a busy couple of weeks we’ve had. The children, as always, have been working hard and enjoying their learning. Today in Achievement Worship we saw some fantastic handwriting that some children have been working on and some superb writing about Pompeii. Equally impressive was a short animation based on the story of Romulus and Remus that Rother class are working on. Luke W and Ollie M are sure to be the next film makers of the future! Six hundred and forty shots to make a 50 second animation takes patience and great perseverance. Skills that are key in being successful. Well done to them! When they are finished we will post them on the school website and on our Twitter feed.
The end of term is rapidly approaching and it’s time to say goodbye to our interim Headteacher, Mrs
Leadbetter-Simms. I would like to thank her on behalf of the governors for all her work at Slinfold School
since February and to wish her well in her new post in Cranleigh. We also welcome back Ms Phibbs from
her maternity leave.
I so enjoyed watching all the children perform and sing, with such obvious enjoyment and enthusiasm, in
yesterday’s KS1 Nativity and the Carol Service in church in the evening. It was a lovely way to end a busy
and productive term. It just remains for me to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy and
Peaceful New Year and I look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Wow - what a week! We are so proud of the children in Hamble and Medway! I'm sure you will agree that they were all super stars. It's quite daunting standing on stage with lots of faces staring at you but they did it with such enthusiasm. Thank you for all your support learning lines, preparing costumes and listening to the songs again and again and...!
