Welcome back to the start of the new school year

Macey’s Blog

My last Blog 🙁

This week is the Year 6’s last blog.

We really don’t want to leave the best school you’ll go to as we have loved every moment during our time. We all want to say a huge thank you to all the teachers and staff for the opportunities and lessons.

We will all be very emotional and someone I know will probably cry. *Cough**Cough* (Robyn) 🙁 🙁 🙁

  • Girls and Boys Hurdles
  • Girls and Boys Sprint
  • Girls and Boys Skipping
  • Girls and Boys Relay

  • Girls and Boys Three lap race
  • Girls and Boys Vortex throw

I am taking part in three of these events: Girls skipping, Girls one lap race and Girls beanbag race.


The Year 3’s will be doing their sports day first thing in the morning and then it will be Year 4’s after that, then Year 5’s and last but not least Year Six.

Me, Holly and one of our classes Sports leaders are team representatives for our team colour Yellow (Fortius). We will be doing this all day until the year 6’s sports day as we are year 6. We are really looking forward to competing in our very last sports day at this school. 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁  But we will always come back and visit whenever we can!

Year 6 Residential to Disneyland Paris!

On 20th May 2019, the year 6’s are going to Disneyland Paris for our residential.

We will arrive back on 22nd May 2019- it may be a late arrival!!

We are going on the coach to Dover and then getting a ferry to Calais. When we arrive we are going to McDonalds and then an Aquarium (if we are not too late arriving).

On the second day we are going to Disneyland and going on all the fun rides and rollercoasters. We’ll have so much fun!!

I’m really excited to go abroad with all my friends. I’m doing the fast rides, so are most of my friends.

On the third and final day we are going on a boat trip to see the Eiffel Tower, before we go back home!!

I can’t wait to go to Disney as I’m going to Disneyworld Florida next year so I can compare them; it also gets me ready for Disneyworld!!!!!

The Arts Festival!

On Thursday 28th March it is the Arts festival!

The arts festival is a friendly school competition where you can sing, dance, act, rap and much more things. You can show off whatever hidden talents you have. It’s also about just having fun and enjoying it.

Year 6 Parent Consultation Day

Parent Consultation day is a day where all students in a year group (for Wednesday, its year 6’s) do a range of different sports; each student does two tournaments one in the morning and one in the afternoon, while your teacher is talking to other people’s parents. When it’s your appointment someone will come and get you to go to the Music room to speak to your teacher. After your appointment, you’ll go back to your fun and exciting tournament.

The tournaments this time are:

  • Dodgeball
  • Basketball
  • Fit bit challenge (a brand new one this year)
  • Orienteering
  • Tri Golf

Towards the end of the day the classes will find out where they have placed out of the year group. You can either come 5th place, 4th place, 3rd place, 2nd place (runners up) or 1st place!!

Dance Leader Opportunity

The Dance leaders (Macey Roberts, Sofia Oliveros, Holly Jones, Jamie-Leigh Mason, Grace Bridger, Katie Powers, Eloise Slaughter, Martha Adams, Caitlin Bentley and Lucy Thrower) have been invited to teach year 2’s from Field Place Infant School a cute, fun-filled dance for Time to Dance. The leaders choreograph the dance on Monday afternoons and teach the Year 2’s on Friday afternoons.

Victorian Days

On Thursday 14th February and Friday 15th February the Year 6’s are having Victorian days. On these Victorian days the children must dress up as Victorian children and the teachers will treat them like Victorian school children. This means they cannot smile or talk in class. Some of these rules are very similar to our school’s rules but much stricter.

In class the tables will be set in rows and the children will do Victorian lessons.

Year 6 ICT

In our ICT lessons with Mr Parkinson we have been using a (free to download) coding app called Kodu.

Kodu is a coding app that helps young and keen children develop their coding skills. It has many tutorials on how to make games or code things for a game. In this app you can also create your own games once you have completed all of the tutorials you need to do. Your game can be about anything you like, such as:

  • A maze
  • A football match
  • Rescuing a friend from enemies
  • Collecting coins
  • And many more!!

If you would like to download this at home ask your parents and search Kodu Game Lab.

ENJOY! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Open Evening!

Our open evening will be on Thursday 29th November from 6:00pm.

There will be a meeting with the Head teacher (Dr Jones) and Head Boy and Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl will be doing a speech.

I’m Head Girl so I have to do a speech. I will most likely be just a bit nervous when I’m reading it too, other than that I’ll enjoy it.

I get to show people around and explain things about the school I also have to answer any of their questions.

Some questions I’m expecting people to ask me are:

  • “What do you do in your role as Head Girl?”
  • “Who is your teacher?”
  • “How many clubs are there and what are they?”
  • “What do you do to help people?”

Head Girl and Boy, head to More Radio.    

On Thursday 18th October, Head Boy (Harrison Hughes) and Head Girl (myself, Macey Roberts) went to More Radio to record a radio advert for the schools upcoming open evening.

The advertisement will be broadcast and played about 80 times around West Sussex. We were at the studio from 11am to 12:30pm on 18th October.

The advertisement will be played on More Radio Worthing, during this month up to 29th November 2018.
