Summer arrives…

May 9, 2016

It’s been a wonderful weekend weather-wise, but also a weekend to celebrate for Patcham Junior School. The year 5 children did a great job, chanting their way through the streets of Brighton. Thank you to all the parents who turned out to help! The big Lemon bus looked resplendent, and though the ‘feeling like a […]

2015 is of course an important year if you are of a certain age and have nostalgic memories of Back to the Future… I enjoyed watching an article on breakfast news this week about hoverboards that operated on water (for safety reasons) – it looked fantastic fun! Following the OFSTED outcome we too are back to […]

Barcombe The sun certainly didn’t shine on our Year 4 trip to Barcombe, but we didn’t let it dampen our spirits as we investigated the local area, and made friends with local school children. Our travel surveys might have got wet, alongside our feet, but we enjoyed seeing how life operates in a more rural […]
