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.
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
At the end of Term 2, we have been busy being creative and finishing off our Rainforest Learning Adventure. Here is some of our work:
In term 2 a few children in year 6 attended the Crochet Club. They persevered in learning new skills and crocheted a snowman Christmas decoration. Well done to all who attended!
Yesterday afternoon, Year Three welcomed in families and carers to see what we have been learning about this term. We have been reading the book ‘ Ug: Boy Genius of the Stone Age and His Search for Softer Trousers’ by Raymond Briggs. The children have loved this comic style book and has helped us with our history topic for the term ‘Stone Age’. To finish off the topic we decided to design and create a pair of softer trousers using recyclable materials. We had lots of fun creating theses garments, the children loved it and I hope the families and friends who joined us did too! Thank you to those who came and donated materials- we couldn’t have done it without you.
On Tuesday 17th December 2019, parents of children in Coral class came in to school to complete a task with their children. The task was to make a model boat out of recyclable materials, The boat had to be strong enough to hold a dictionary and a soft toy bear.
As you can see from the pictures below, the children had a great time working with their parents on the model.
As for the bear… he got a little soggy.
The year 2’s have read the book Katie in Scotland. Today in Funky Foods we made Scottish Shortbread Stars.
They used a variety of skills including weighing, sieving, rubbing and rolling out the dough. Once baked, they tasted and gave the shortbread a rating of 5 out of 5 stars!
Year 6 have been finding out about Fairtrade and the difference it makes to farmers. Here are some photos of them taking part in group role play and negotiations to decide how much money they should be paid per banana sold!
