Evacuee Letter

This week we received a letter from one of the evacuee ladies we wrote to who came to our school.

Here is a copy of it







The children were very excited by it and it gave their writing real purpose.

Plumpton Dance Festival 23rd May

Yesterday, I received the times and information for the dance festival. I will send out a letter on Monday.

We will be attending the Dance Festival again this year at Plumpton Racecourse on Wednesday 23rd May and your child will need the following:

A packed lunch and snack along with a drink – no fizzy or glass bottles.

Please can you help with the children’s costumes, could I ask that the boys need to wear black trousers, black shoes and a single colour (not black or white) t-shirt.  Girls need to wear black leggings/trousers, black shoes and a coloured t-shirt as above.

Please could you drop your child off at 8.45am. There is a large parking area and from there could you please walk them over to the marquee tent where I will meet you and then collect them at 3pm from the same place.

The children will be performing three dances in the afternoon which you are very welcome to watch. If you wish to do so can you arrive from 12.45pm. On the running order we are down to perform at 2.25pm.









Cuckmere Haven Trip

As you know we visited Cuckmere Haven as our topic over the next two terms is rivers.

The children did some fantastically detailed sketching of the area and investigated the speed of the river’s flow.

Here are some of the photos taken yesterday.

Museum of water

We are going to start a museum of water where the children bring in water in a range of different smallish containers, the weirder the better (these can be returned if need be.) With their water there needs to be an accompanying story.

We will collect these over terms 5 and 6 and make a display of them.

They can bring in water from going on holiday, a trip to the seaside, visiting a new or favourite place. I have started the collection off at Cuckmere.

I got the idea from a lady called Amy Sharrocks who has started her own museum. Have a look at her website for inspiration. http://www.museumofwater.co.uk/.

Folk Dance Festival 23rd May at Plumpton Racecourse

We have been invited to perform at the dance festival on the date above.

We will be learning three dances to perform to the public during that afternoon. You are all welcome to attend.

I am waiting for the arrival and finish times and when you can arrive to watch.

The children need to be dressed in school trousers, black shoes e.g. school shoes or other black shoes they feel comfortable to dance in. Their tops need to be coloured with no prints/ writing upon.

They will need a packed lunch for the day.

When I have the times I will send a letter out.
