We explored the depths of the shark tank, seeing amazing Blacktip sharks. We had a challenge to find Nemo and Dory hiding somewhere in the centre. We eventually found them towards the end of our trip hiding in the sparkling coral! One of the highlights was seeing the Rays, one even came to the surface to say hello!
The children used costumes and props to learn about the story of Henry VIII and his six wives, before being given a detailed tour of the historic buildings, and then having a go at Tudor-style writing using ink and quills.
What a fantastic afternoon yesterday as 8 of our pupils participated in the Year 5/6 School Games South Downs Area Basketball Tournament. – We finished a very respectable 4th place out of 9 schools and our pupils left the event hot and sweaty, but they thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
Eastbourne Schools Swimming Gala 2020:
Yesterday afternoon 8 of our pupils took part in the annual Swimming Gala at Eastbourne College.
All of our swimmers did an amazing job and represented our school with pride. They were clearly pushing their bodies to the maximum with all the races they had to do. We are very proud of them as they swam their hearts out, with some of them even swimming their least favorite strokes just so we could take part. A big thank you to them all.
Today, pupils across the school took part in the first of our drop-down days. Each day will be based around one of our school rules: Be Ready. Be Respectful. Be Safe. The theme for today was Respect.
Pupils visited different classes and took part in various activities, all linking to the theme of respect. These included:
* Respect for the environment
* Respect for our family
* Respect for the community
* Respect for the law
* Respect for different religions
* Self respect
Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the different tasks and kept a record of their learning and discussions in their new drop-down day journals.
Those pupils who were at Bushy Wood today will get to experience these wonderful lessons tomorrow when they return to school.
Our next drop-down day will be based around being safe. If you or someone you know works in a profession (fire brigade, police, electrician, etc.) that could be part of this next event, please get in contact with us.
It has been fantastic to have have parents from across every year group visiting school this term to see the amazing Christmas events that have taken place. Our Early Years pupils teamed up with Year 1 to put on an brilliant nativity, and the KS2 carol concert in the Church was fantastic.
Congratulations to 4 of our students who won the local Boccia tournament. The students will go on to represent our school and area at the School Games Regional Finals. This is a HUGE achievement for these particular students. Well done all!
We would like to welcome the newest members of PaWS to their new school. They have settled in quickly to life in reception and have been enjoying exploring our learning environments and learning the school routines. Mrs Davis and Mrs Watts
