A HUGE thank you to all parents and pupils who donated to Children In Need. The children looked 'spotacular' in their spotty clothes! The hula hoop challenge and bake sale were also a huge success. This year we raised an incredible total of £575. Pudsey will be proud!
Pupils at Langney Primary School were treated to a visit from Google, who were showcasing their ‘Google Expeditions’ program. Google Expeditions allows pupils to travel the world to over 300 destinations, right from the classroom. With the teacher acting as a guide, children are immersed in a 3600 virtual world environment of 3D images. From Machu Picchu, to the Great Barrier Reef to the Kruger National Park in South Africa; children were mesmerized by birds flying overhead, elephants standing behind them and tropical fish swimming around them. Poppy, in Year 3, said, “Virtual reality is amazing. I was right next to a stingray and then I realised there was a shark right behind me. It ma
Both the A Team and B Team lost to The Haven , 3-0 and 1-0 respectively. Sometimes in life you just have to put your hands up and say to yourselves "we tried our best but the better team won." This was the case on Wednesday afternoon. Well played, The Haven. If it was not for our amazing goalkeeper in the 1st game, the score could of been a few goals higher. Onwards and Upwards against Stafford Junior...
Well done to all of our runners ( boys and girls ) that took part in the Eastbourne Cross Country event on Tuesday at Hampden Park. We were blessed with good weather and the event had a record 9 schools taking part. The course was 2 laps of Hampden Park, starting and finishing at Eastbourne Rugby Club. A distance of approximately 2 miles. Special mention goes to two of our boys for finishing in the top 15 runners and now qualify for the next round.
A Remembrance Day Service was held at St. Richard's Church. A huge well done to all of our pupils; especially the readers, flag bearers, choir and wreath layers.
Thank you to Miss Pollard for organsing this event and Reverend Woodward for leading it.
To mark Remembrance, a special tea was held at the school on the afternoon of Thursday 10th November. For the past three years pupils at Langney have been learning about local war hero, Nelson Victor Carter, who gained a Victoria Cross. The special Remembrance Tea included a narration about Nelson VC, 'In Flanders Fields' dance by the school's Musical Theatre Group, a tap dance performance by the school's Tappy Toes Club and songs from our school choir. Special guests were invited including descendants of Nelson Victor Carter, British Legion, Heritage Lottery, local history society members and teachers from Chatsmore Catholic High School. A huge thank you to the Friends for providing the t
On Thursday 3rd November, Year 6 visited St Catherine's College where they were treated to a day of aspirational activities hosted by real life student ambassadors from the University of Sussex. This was the second of 3 days (the first of which took place in Year 5) which was all about the transition to secondary school and learning about further education. The children played a career building board game with children from Tollgate Junior School, made their own timetable for university (some work, lots of cake, no washing!) and had to collect the right equipment for each lesson from a pile...but they were only allowed to pigeon walk! Lots of fun was had and the children also learned a lot o
On Thursday 20th October, Year 6 completed the final part of their Smugglers' adventure by visiting St Clements Caves in Hastings. The children (and teachers) were very excited to be visiting the home of smuggling along the South Coast. The caves were so dark and scary that Miss Crane needed a torch and Mr Beale cried for his Mummy! Fortunately, all of the children were there to look after them and make sure they didn't have nightmares. There were lots of things to see including: the Monk's Walk (very long and very dark and VERY scary!); the Chapel (less long, less dark, MORE scary!) and finally the delightful treat of the rotting corpse of a captured smuggler dangling in a gibbet cage - BEY
Year 1 were very excited to show off their learning last term. Each week, The Fairy Godmother visited the Year 1 classes with a letter from a different fairy tale character. The children revisited these well-known stories and thought about them from different perspectives. They were able to help The Fairy Godmother write letters back to these characters, to help offer solutions to their problems. They suggested that The Troll might be better off going down to Tesco than trying to eat The Three Billy Goats Gruff and that The Gingerbread Man could try wearing a hat and a scarf as a disguise. The children loved sharing these wonderful ideas and acting out the fairy tales at their end of ter
Our Boys Football team made it to the semi Final of the Eastbourne Primary Schools Football Tournament on Saturday, where they lost to the eventual winners Ocklynge School. In the earlier group stages (where only the top 2 qualify from each league) Langney finished runners up. A huge thank you to the boys that played, to our Competitive Sports Coach Mr. Field and to the parents that came along and supported.
On Monday 14 children from Years 5 and 6 attended an Orienteering Festival in Gildredge Park, run by the University of Brighton. The children had a fantastic time navigating their way around the park using only a map, letters and numbers. The children got quicker as the morning went on and they competed against 3 other schools in a timed challenge at the end. They displayed brilliant team work skills and no one got lost!
Thank you to all the parents who came to see our fabulous 1066 inspired finish. It was great to see so many parents coming to support their children. We enjoyed showing you our Talk for Writing as well as reading out some of our excellent recounts and diary entries to you. We hope it gave you are real insight into what the children have been learning. The battle video was super exciting too and showed you exactly what tactics the Normans used in order to defeat the Saxons.
