Throughout Term 5 and 6, children from Year 1 to Year 3 have been attending 'Super Yogis,' a morning Yoga club that teaches the basics of breathing, relaxation, meditation and yoga poses. The children's balance, concentration and calmness has shown great improvement over the last 2 terms and they have shown a real understanding of how yoga can help us live a healthy, peaceful life. Well done, Yogis, we hope to see you next year!
On Friday 30th June we participated in our 2nd ever Race for Life event. Mrs Young was determined for it to be even bigger and better than the previous year and it certainly was. With the children dressed head to toe in pink and blue, their face paint carefully in place and their dedicated messages on their back, they were ready to start. The music was pumping and the course was set. Mr Field kicked off the warm up dressed in his favourite pink tutu and pink wig – we even have photographic evidence to prove it! The children chose to run, jog or walk and chose their own distance of 1 or 3 miles. The most important part was to join in and have fun, which we ALL did! Right from our tiny Recepti
On Tuesday 27th June Years 5 and 6 showed off their amazing musical talents in a Brass Showcase led by Mr Marcus Plant from the East Sussex Music Service. Years 5 and 6 have been working incredibly hard all year on learning how to play the trumpet and devloping skills learned on the P Bone. They have been working on skills such playing a range of notes and reading simple sheet music. They put these togther and performed five short pieces. They played a range of songs that included one with a funky name- Hippo Blues! They even went one step further and incorporated actions into one their songs. No mean feat with over 120 children! In addition to the wonderful trumpet and P Bone, one year 5 ch
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side when we took our after-school tennis club to Devonshire Park to watch the Aegon tennis championships. We were able to watch some players on the practise courts, got Ross Hutchin's autograph and enjoyed a rather soggy lunch. We were briefly allowed onto Centre Court and the very kind steward explained how the court coverings worked. Unfortunately, most of the players stayed inside in the dry, and we decided to leave early as it looked unlikely that there would be any play. We finished the day off with some free strawberries and cream! Let's hope the weather is better next time.
Friday 30 June marked the anniversary of the Battle of Boar's Head and the start of this year's Nelson Victor Carter Football Tournament. All the House Teams were in action and performed wholeheartedly for our special guest - Nelson's grandson. Spyke had a great time cheering the teams on and getting involved with all the kicks from the centre spot! The scores were as follows - Harbour 1:2 Priory Sovereign 4:2 Martello Well done to all the teams! A huge thank you to Mr Field who found the time (and energy) to oversee these games as well as our Race For Life event on the same day! Matches continue next week!
Ten very talented children from year 5 were lucky enough to be chosen to represent the school at St Andrews Prep School in their Victorian Sports Day Challenge to mark their 140th Anniversary. In glorious sunshine the children participated in the morning activities of Fencing, Fives, Hockey and Croquet (on the Headmaster's Lawn nonetheless ). After a sumptuous BBQ/ Strawberries and cream lunch the children split into teams and took part in an Olympic themed Decathlon in the afternoon. The emphasis of the day was to have fun , meet new friends and try new. activities . All three targets were met. Special thanks goes to the staff of St Andrews for hosting such a wonderful event.
