Dear Parents

Our Year 6 children headed out on Monday for our Year 6 Leavers Day. We began the day at the beach where we enjoyed an ice-cream together. Then we went to ‘Pier Pressure’ to try to crack the codes in their escape room, ‘Looting the Lanes’. The children worked together to solve puzzles and find clues. We were of course successful and found the diamond! We ended our day at Othello’s enjoying a delicious lunch. What a great send off!

Year 4 camp was another success with the children experiencing lots of new activities. All of the children showed bravery as they clambered across rocks, abseiled down walls and deal with tent spiders! They returned to school happy and very muddy.

Year 1 visited Lewes Castle on Wednesday to discover more about how castles were constructed. They had a tour of the castle and read stories and dressed up in traditional costumes. They enjoyed a picnic lunch in the grounds of the castle before returning to school.

Please do not forget they we have our Herstmonceux fundraiser on Monday. Please can the children wear summer clothes and donate £1 and bring another 50p for an ice-lolly.
It is our whole School photograph on Tuesday. Please make sure that children are in full uniform including their blazer.

Congratulations to Bodee, Georgina, Amyra and Annabelle S for passing their music exams with flying colours. We are very proud of you all. Also a mention for Millie who I know is experiencing great success playing with her netball team.

As I write this, Upper School are preparing to head to the church for our performance of Romeo and Juliet. There is much excitement in the air and I know that it will be a fantastic show. Thank you to Mrs Slaymaker for all your hard work with this. I know that it is all you have lived and breathed for recently.

Another busy week for us. We are looking forward to our last week of activities with the children. Please note this is the last day to book holiday club today and that next week school finishes at midday on Friday 16th July. There will be no after school club provision on this day.

And finally, we know that we will have a slow start to Monday as we may have some very tired children who have stayed up to watch the football. Fingers crossed for the team.

Have a lovely weekend.

Best wishes
Mrs Gane and Ms Hayward
