A huge well done to our amazing year 6 pupils and staff who completed the Eastbourne pier to Hastings pier walk on Saturday 18th January. The children showed true determination and resilience to complete the walk and raise as much money as possible for Sierra Leone. We are incredibly proud and want to share the photos of the wonderful day we had. Thank you to all staff and families for your support and sponsorship.
Our first Forest School sessions of the new year have been very muddy! Year 5 are learning about the Tudors this term.
They used mud and straw to make daub to apply to the wattle fence.
To finish off our RE topic from last term we were visited by a Jewish lady in class. Sally is a practising Jew who lives in Eastbourne, and attends the local Synagogue there. We found out all about her lifestyle and what it was like to grow up in a Jewish house, the festivals and celebrations they had and their beliefs. We were lucky enough to explore and look at some artifacts that she brought with her. The children were really engaged and made us very proud with their excellent behaviour and good questioning.
Last Friday Jade class walked down to Hastings Museum to take part in their first (of three) LEGO workshops. Using LEGO they are learning to code and debug as part of their computing curriculum this term. This meant children were able to build a robot out of LEGO, then connect it to a program to control its movement by creating algorithms. As you can see we had a lot of fun and the children were brilliant. Thank you to our parent helpers, we hope you enjoyed it too!
Please don’t forget to sponsor our amazing Year 6 students who have volunteered to walk from Eastbourne pier to Hastings pier (15 miles) to help raise money for Mr. Saunders and I to travel to Sierra Leone in February! We welcome families to support us by greeting us at the end of the walk at Hastings pier between 12.00 and 1.00pm Saturday 18th January.
Thanks for your continued support.
Miss Joslin and Mr.Saunders
