Aldi Team GB recipe competition




Aldi have launched an exciting new competition, which I have entered our school into. We need to design recipes that are inspired by Team GB. Your recipe can be for any dish (breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert), but it must include features that are listed on the checklist, such as two fruits or vegetables.

If you would like to take part, have a look through the PowerPoint that I have attached and the overview sheet before designing your recipe on the template.

Please send your finished recipes to myself ( or your class teacher, by 8.2.21.

Good luck!



Year 6 Charity Work over Christmas

Lewis in Year 6, has earned his ‘Community’ star on the Year 6 wall of fame by single-handedly collected over 70 tins of food amongst other things that were donated to a local charity ‘The Pantry’ who support people in food poverty.  His stash was collected by them over Christmas.

Santa Dash

Here are some photos of Year 5 Santa Dash around the playground. Everyone looked superb and stayed motivated throughout. Well done Ruby class and thank you to the families for your continued support.



As many of you know, earlier this year I travelled to Sierra Leone as part of our ‘Hastings Sierra Leone Friendship Link’ we have here at Christ Church. Like many things, fundraising has been hit and come to a standstill this year due to Covid. Therefore, the link has put together an online auction to try to raise some much needed funds. All schools locally have donated prizes to the auction to support and hopefully raise money for our friends. The Link has two big projects underway: to provide isolation and triage units for the Health Centre, and to improve the water supply (and eventually the sanitation) in all the schools. So every penny this auction raises will bring us a step closer to achieving our goals. Below is the link to the auction for anyone who is interested or after some Christmas presents.
Happy bidding and thank you for your continued support with our global learning and friendship link.

Remembrance Day 2020

To mark Remembrance Day, class bubbles went on a mini remembrance trail, ending with a visit to our outdoor Reflection Area on our Forest School.

Each class contributed poppies to our display…

…and read prayers written by the children.


Classes have added their poems and prayers to our indoor reflection areas too.

Book of Hope
