On Thursday 20th April, 7 children from KS2 attended the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) Leaders Conference at the Birley Centre in Eastbourne. These children blew their teachers away with a recent home learning S cience project. They had been asked to design a solution to housing/farming problems brought about by flooding in Bangladesh. They all came up with fantastic, well thought-out ideas which they demonstrated through detailed posters and 3D models. At the conference, they presented these ideas to approximately 100 other children from schools around Eastbourne, as well as listening to the other children present their ideas. Miss Rae and Miss Curtis, our Science Co-o
Thank you for the huge turn out of parents who attended Year 2's Fabulous Finish at the end of Term 4. The children really enjoyed the carousel of sports activities, showing off their PE skills. These skills included, football, handball, hockey and basketball. All the children showed good sportsmanship and celebrated their successes. We held out as long as possible, but eventually the weather beat us and we had to call it a day earlier than we had intended. Thank you once again for your support.
Thank you to all of the nursery families who joined us for our Nursery Fabulous Finishes at the end of the term. We were amazed by children's superb re-telling of We're Going on a Bear Hunt and their lovely Easter singing. We hope you were too! The Easter picture making in the nursery and egg hunt and balancing outside also proved popular. We hope you all had an enjoyable holiday and we look forward to seeing you again in the nursery next week to talk about the children's progress and for you to look through children's Learning Journeys.
Year 5 WOWed parents and teachers with their Spanish Fabulous Finish! Based entirely around the planets - which ties in with our Science learning - the children presented information about the planets; identified planet facts in a mastermind game; sang songs and rhymes to help remember the planet names and then described their own made up crazy planets! This would be an impressive show alone, however the entire presentation was spoken in Spanish (with some translation to help those of us who are new to the Spanish language!). We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Señora Newing for teaching us each week and helping us organise this wonderful showcase!
Year 5 have been lucky enough to be visited by Sussex University for a University workshop to find out what life at university is like. As well as staff from the uni, student ambassadors also came to work with us to tell us about their university experiences. We played lots of games; learnt the uni jargon and even had a go at guessing which societies were real and fake - we were surprised (and excited - especially Miss Post!) to find out that 'Tea and Cake' and 'Harry Potter Club' were both real! A huge thank you to Sussex University for giving up their day to show us what we can expect from university in the future
Throughout the term, we have expanded our PSHE learning on Dreams and Goals to include thinking about our dream jobs and aspirations. Thank you to the volunteers who kindly gave up their time to visit us and talk about their jobs. It was wonderful to see how engaged the children were and you all certainly broadened their understanding of different careers and the reality of day to day life in work. Today, the children applied their understanding by arriving promptly for their interviews in appropriate clothing. The children had to present their job research (many thanks for parental support with both costumes and homework); had to complete a formal written job application; had to engage in g
This term Year 5 have put in a tremendous amount of effort to their dance lessons. The children were expected to learn a choreographed routine, based around the Highwayman poem, as well as choreographing their own dances to do with forces. The children performed (twice!) to a large audience and we are incredibly proud of their enthusiasm and dedication to this term's dance learning. We would also like to say thank you to Miss Da Silva from Causeway school for teaching us.
Our Girls team have waited patiently to play their first games of the season and on Thursday 23rd March they had the opportunity to play 2 games. They were victorious against Heron Park Academy 2-0 in the first game with the goals scored by the impressive Grace; and drew 0-0 versus Polegate Primary.
On Thursday 23rd March a group of 7 pupils were selected by Mr Field to represent the school in the Eastbourne Area P.E Association Year 3/4 Hockey Tournament held at Heron Park Academy. For 6 of the pupils it was their first time they have represented the school in a sporting competition. The team performed brilliantly throughout the morning resulting in playing in the final against its hosts Heron Park. Langney were victorious 3-1 with Tayo being awarded the player of the tournament. Well done all.
Mr Field and Miss Jackson have been taking a group of pupils from Langney to Causeway School every Wednesday during Terms 3 and 4, for trampolining under the stewardship / expert coaching from Mrs Clay. This has been a great session for all involved with the skill level improving week on week but also the confidence and social skills of our pupils. The more able assist with the coaching which is lovely to witness and every single pupil has learnt a wide range of skills from Mrs Clay. They are now able to complete routines linking moves together to a very good standard. They are currently being assessed against BGA criteria and they will be gaining certification. Working with Langney is somet
Ratton School Year 9's hosted a KS1 Mixed Football Festival at the All Weather pitch at Eastbourne Sports Park. There were 20 teams , all very excited but impeccably behaved, participating in skill sessions for the first 30 minutes followed by mini tournaments. Our Langney team played 5 matches: winning 3, drawing 1 and losing 1. Cannot wait until the next time !!
On the evening of Wednesday 29th March saw Langney's Got Talent take to the stage! There was a variety of performances including a magic show, singing, dancing, comedy, gymnastics, hula hooping, judo and theatrical performances. Most of these had been written, designed and choreographed by the children. And they were all amazing!! One parent said they felt a 'a lot of love in the room' as the children performed to a fantastic audience of family and friends. Rhianna, from Year 3, was asked the following day if she had won the competition. "Yep," she said, "we all did!" That pretty much sums it up! Thank you to all those who attended and especially to all those who took part; we hope you had a
On Tuesday 28 March, Year 3 became mad scientists and invited their parents to come and see inside our 'Wacky Science Workshop'. Each of the three classrooms had a different science experiment for parents and pupils to investigate together. Parents and children took part in the 'The Bottle Band' experiment where bottles with different amounts of water were hit to change the pitch. Moving on they made 'Colourful Creations' from milk, skillets, food colouring and washing up liquid to make some amazing effects. Then the children saw 'The Raving Raisins' dance. By simply adding lemonade the raisins started to jump up and down all over the place! A rather more smelly activity was 'The Eggsper
