Our Reception classes have had fun learning about Space this term. They have been on rocket journeys into space and had fun learning about the solar system. To celebrate the end of our topic we had an alien tea party based around our core text ' Aliens Come to Tea on Planet Zum Zee.' We celebrated with fruit rocket kebabs, space biscuits and lots of alien dancing. We were so impressed with all of the wonderful costumes and would like to thank everybody for their fantastic eff

Reception have had lots of fun learning about Diwali this week They explored a range of traditional Diwali activities, for example: making clay 'diya lights', using coloured salt to make 'rangoli patterns', drawing beautiful 'mehndi' henna designs and trying on special clothes. They also learnt all about the Diwali story of Rama and Sita and lots of children enjoyed acting this story out using puppets.
Year 6 got to the heart of the matter this week in Science with a Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality experience. To start with, the children wore augmented reality t-shirts which magically showed their rib cages, pumping heart and other vital organs. Mr Dawson and Mr Poston then gave the children the opportunity to view a 3 dimensional beating heart close up, including an exciting journey into the heart's valves and chambers! There were many 'oohs' and 'aahs' throughout
During Remembrance this week, our Year 2 children in Bananaman Nest felt compelled to reflect. As they made poppies, children remembered fallen soldiers, wrote down their thoughts and read them out loud proudly and confidently. Well done to you all for showing brilliant Appreciation and Mutual Respect, two of our High Five School Values.
Today in Year 1 in our English lesson, we had a special visit from a power ranger. The children couldn't believe they had met a real life power ranger at our school! He told us how it feels to be a superhero and used lots of exciting descriptive words. This helped us in our writing when we used adjectives to describe feelings and events. Go Go Power Rangers!
Today, we had our very first virtual Remembrance Service! A selection of Year 6 pupils presented readings from their work on London during the Blitz and poems were contributed by our Nurture Groups. There was no religious element this year but Fr. Danny of St. Richard's did very kindly send along a recorded Blessing. Classes across the school watched from their classrooms and observed a two minute silence at 11am. In addition to this, the pupils have been watching recordings

The forum allowed children from both Eastbourne and Australia to talk about environmental issues they think are important. It marked the 25th anniversary of the very first United Nations Children's Conference on the Environment held in Eastbourne in 1995 and will pave the way for next year's event. Ethan and Heidi spoke about their concerns around food waste and excessive littering. They represente
