Spring Term - Latest Broadsheet
Friday 24 March 2017
A word from Mrs Beeby:
My sincere thanks to the children and parents who supported us at our Open Morning last Saturday. It was an incredible morning. We had more visitors than we have ever had before at this time of year and the phone has been ringing constantly all week as a result. The children were magnificent of course and I was extremely proud of them.
Children in years 5–8 were treated to a performance of Macbeth at Lancing College on Tuesday. The Splendid Theatre Company put on a quirky and highly original performance of the Scottish play. Many of our children were tempted into audience participation! They had an absolutely wonderful time . Many thanks to the LPWA who funded the entire cost of the trip for our children.
On Wednesday morning we welcomed our Pre-prep and Nursery parents to our Spring Assembly with a Mother's Day theme. As predicted by Mrs Stephens and Mrs Thomas it was a real tear jerker! The children sang beautifully and spoke with such confidence. We weren't treated to a 'Mrs Flower solo' this time because the Nursery children sang so well! As the children handed their mothers flowers at the end of the assembly it reminded me how lucky we are to be members of such a warm and caring community.
This week we have welcomed you into school to discuss your children's work. These occasions are so important and I hope that you feel the strong sense of partnership we hope to build with you to support and encourage your children to achieve the fullness of their potential.
In their English lessons, prep children have had the opportunity to perform the poems of their choice this week and Ms Howard and Mrs Casey have loved listening to them. They have been very impressed with the quality of their work. Next week we will have our poetry recitals to finish the term. All pupils in Years 1 and 2 will perform at 9.00am on Tuesday, all pupils in Year 3 will perform at 9.00am on Wednesday and some children from Years 4 to 8 will perform on Wednesday at 11.00am. You are warmly invited to come to any or all of the recitals and I hope you enjoy them.
Yesterday Reception visited the Novium Museum in Chichester to learn about space and the job of an astronaut. They had a lovely time. On Thursday evening a group of children from Years 3 to 8 performed the most beautiful piece in the annual Time to Dance event at The Pavilion Theatre. To say I was pleased and proud would be a understatement! Congratulations all round. Today, Year 4 are at Fishbourne Roman Palace. What exciting and busy lives our children lead!
Have a very happy weekend.
