In October a pop up theatre visited school. All the children enjoyed a wonderful performance. The play was called The Elephant in the Room and it was about a little girl called Jessie who lived with her grumpy Nan. When Jessie went to bed she dreamt of all the wonderful animals she could meet, she even went back in time and met Queen Victoria! The children were captivated.

In October we held a 6 Weeks In meeting for parents of our new Early Years children. Parents and children were invited to enjoy breakfast together. The children then went to their classes and the parents stayed to hear professionals offering advice to help their children settle into school life. We had representatives from the Health Service, Early Years professionals from Chichester Nursery, the Library Service and Mrs Sayce. It was a very worthwhile morning. child with mum

The Association of Friends of Rumboldswhyke School held a Barn Dance at St George's Church. A live band called Rufus Return provided the music and calling. The church was decorated with bunting which added to the great atmosphere. Everyone had a fantastic time, even some of the more reluctant participants! It was a great event which made £401 profit, money which helps buy those 'extras', to enhance the children's learning. Thank you to Father Tim for allowing us to use the church.

We had a' Be Bright, Be Seen' non uniform day. The children offered a donation to come to school in bright clothes.
Mrs Sayce held a special assembly explaining to the children that now the winter nights are drawing in it is important for them to wear bright clothing so that they can be seen by motorists. This will then help them to keep safe.
The donations made came to £71.25, a cheque for this amount was sent to Brake the road safety charity. To find out more about the important work this charity does, please click on the link below.

The children enjoyed a non-unform day in aid of Children in Need. Mrs Sayce led an assembly explaining that the money raised goes to help children who are less fortunate than themselves.
From contributions and the cake sale we raised the fantastic sum of £272.33.
Thank you for all your support!

The Mayor came to school to present us with two awards from the Chichester City Council Chichester In Bloom 2015 Schools' Competition. We were also presented with gardening vouchers. We were runners up in both the General Impressions and the Environmental Awareness categories. Some of the School Gardening Club children were very proud to accept these awards.

The Early Years Reception children had a fun morning making Pizzas with Mr Kell, a local baker. They found rolling out the dough tricky. For toppings they were able to choose from a range of vegetables. When cooked, they looked delicious! pizza making pizza making
