Dear Parents

What a busy week! School Council met and discussed changes that the children would like to see around the school. Although I am not sure that a zip wire or zoo with a tiger can be achieved we will look at the ideas closely and feedback to the council about what is achievable by the end of term and beyond. The councillors can then feedback to their classes.

The Maths House competition took place on Wednesday and was by all accounts a very exciting event with Herstmonceux being the winning house, although it was very close with Arundel. Well done Herstmonceux! The yellow ribbon has now been tied around the Maths cup on the awards shelf.

Year 5 and 6 had a session today with the National Archives called Propaganda and the art of war. This will support their World War Two history learning. They specifically looked at how the British government encouraged people to support the war. The children were able to explore original propaganda posters, photographs and film to compare their effectiveness in conveying powerful messages to a mass audience.

We would love for you to support us in our fundraising event on Thursday 27th May. Tickets for the quiz are £5 and are available from Miss Taylor. It promises to be a really fun evening and the children will benefit from every penny of fundraising. The event will be held in the playground and we will maintain social distancing.

Miss Knight organised for some of our older books to be donated to NEU Children in poverty fund this week. A really worthy cause that makes sure all children have access to books.

Class photos are on Monday so please make sure that your child comes to school in full uniform looking smart.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes
Mrs Gane and Ms Hayward
