Weekly News For Families 14.10.22

Dear Parents and Carers,

It was lovely to see so many of you at our Time to Shine after school today. The children were very keen to share what they have been really proud of from this half term. I am sure the children will continue to be working just as hard during next week before the half term break.

October Prayer

Please find attached a copy of our October Prayer which we have been using during our times of worship this month. It reflects on the changes in the season which are now evident around us.

Food Bank Collection

On Thursday, our House Captains help load 12 large shopping bags full of your donations on to a van to be delivered to the Food Bank in Bognor Regis. Paul Dickson, the Deputy Manager of the Food Bank, was very grateful for our gifts.

EYFS 2023 Open Days

Earlier today, Miss Emery, Mr Hughes and I enjoyed meeting some families who are interested in sending their children to our school next year. It was lovely to hear lots of positive comments from them about the calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school. They were very impressed with the children’s focussed attitude to their learning. There is another Open Day tomorrow morning when we will be showing many more families around the school. Thank you to the Year 6 children who have volunteered their time to come along and help!

Premier Holiday Camps

Premier Education are running October Half Tern Holiday Camps (Monday-Friday 8:30am-4pm) for children in the local area. The closest one will be held at Barnham Community Hall. If you are interest in this, leaflets are available in the information rack at the school office.

Year 3/4 Classes at the Novium Museum

Last Friday night, the children in Pevensey Class had a brilliant time at their Sleepover at the Novium Museum, in Chichester. They were praised for their kindness, manners and exceedlingly high levels of collaboration with each other. It is Southsea Class’ turn to enjoy their Sleepover this evening, so we wish them a fantastic time as well.

Wishing you all a good weekend – whatever you are up to.

Take care

Kim Huggett
