You just never know what will happen one day to the next ...

Yesterday morning we arrived at school to find a flatbed truck broken down in our lay-by. Our staff team quickly found a solution to the problem, setting up a one way system for traffic to ensure that all our children arrived at school safely. Thank you to all our families and buses for their understanding and co-operation. The lorry driver was very apologetic and his companion, Billy the Jack Russell Pug cross was very friendly!

Sadly, the lovely turf on the truck was destined for somewhere in Hampshire and not for us, even though we did suggest he might like to leave it here!

Today Robin Class face-timed West Chiltington Primary School and spoke to the Year One Class (Purple Class).  This was to do with our Kenya Connecting Classrooms project as their school are also part of the British Council project.  Robin Class loved using the laptop and asking the Year One children different questions about their school!

 Year Three and their violins

Year Three and their violins

We love music at our school and this year we have seen a real boost in the numbers of children taking up a musical instrument. Every year, children get the chance in Year Three to learn the violin. Additionally we have children learning: the guitar, cello, violin, piano, keyboard and saxophone.
