House of the Week
The House with the most house points this week was Air!  Well done Air – we hope you enjoyed your extra playtime.

Sports Day

We were very disappointed to have to cancel our Sports Day yet again due to the weather and we understand this can be especially difficult for working parents. 

As school is so busy between now and the end of term there is no single day left when we can have a whole school sports day event and so arrangements will now be as follows:


KS2 - Tuesday 16th July - 1pm - 3pm

KS1 - Thursday 18th July - 10am - 11.30am


Parents are invited to both events but there will be no family picnic this time around.  


Swimming Gala

On Monday 24th June 8 pupils from Year 3 and 4 went to Heathfield Swimming Pool after school for a swimming gala. There were two heats for Breaststroke, Front Crawl, Butterfly and Backstroke. Abi F, Grace, Sadie and Alex all got into the final for their races due to being in the top five of their heats. The Year 4 team also got through to the final for their front crawl. 
Miss Glenister was incredibly proud of all the pupils who tried their absolute best and swam their socks off! The team were all very proud of their medals as they should be! Well done everyone! You did us proud! 

Year 5 - Design Technology

Further to their residential trip, Year 5 have been working hard in Design Technology on their models of Old Harry Rocks at The Isle of Purbeck in Dorset.  Please see some examples of their work below.

Do you have a Piano (not a keyboard) that needs a new home?

Our piano is in the Research Hub to support those children who have piano lessons in school.  We would love to have a piano in the hall as well so that children could play the piano in assembly and on other occasions.  Do you have or know of a reasonable piano that needs a new home?  As pianos often require a specialist moving team they sometimes overstay their welcome and we would be keen to rehouse one if available.  Please contact the school office in the first instance.  Many thanks!

Can you Transport a Planted Wheelbarrow to Windsor on Friday 19th July?

Our Reception Class have entered the Royal Windsor Summer Show School Garden competition BUT we don't have a way of transporting our planted wheelbarrow to St George's School in Windsor!  Might you be able to help?  The wheelbarrow is substantial and full of plants and needs to be delivered to the school between 10am and 3pm on Friday 19th July and collected either on Saturday 20th July after 5pm or Sunday 21st July between 10am and 2pm.  Many thanks for considering whether you might be able to help :-)

Safeguarding our Children

Please make sure you let us know if someone else will be picking up your child from school.  We have had many instances lately of people picking up children which we didn't know about.  This will be challenged at classroom doors as it is our duty to make absolutely sure that your child goes home with the right person.  


Summer Fair - This Saturday 11am-2pm

A few asks to make in order to make the day as fun and successful as possible!


1) Raffle tickets  - could you return all raffle tickets to the entrance desk on Saturday morning if you have any left. There will be more for sale!
2) It's not too late to offer to help on your stall - please ping your Class rep - not every class has had offers from each parent for help and this would be very much appreciated!


We are forecasted 30 degree bright sunshine! Whilst we couldn't ask for better please do remember to:
Wear hats  + suncream. There is little shade on the field and with Frokidz in action the children (and parents!) will undoubtedly be dancing!
Encourage the children to drink plenty of fluids and water - the bar is well stocked ready !

Please supervise your children to ensure they stay away from the area cordoned off on the field.  

The Fair Itself

The PTA will be funding Frokidz (dance and music group) after popular demand from last year. Plus with the following stalls we really hope you and the family will have a wonderful day:

External Stalls

Forever Living Aloe Products
Gluten Free Fudge
LSA Vases
Toy Stall

School Picnic Friday 5th July - weather dependent, the picnic will take place at the earlier time of 5-8pm, to allow for time to clear up before departure!  We have an ice cream van and local band. Sign up will be available shortly. As a reminder to new parents this is an opportunity for families to bring a picnic dinner to the School Field to celebrate then end of the year!

Thank you as always for all your support.
