The new school council has been elected for spring term. Helping to implement activities such as ‘Kindness Week’ in November, joining the school council means that two pupils from each form will have the chance to represent their year’s views at weekly meetings throughout the term.
Form 4 got creative in history this week, designing and building their own Anderson shelters. As part of their current history project on World War II the class constructed individual shelters set within a garden. During the war home shelters like these had to be hidden to avoid detection, so the girls added trees and camouflaging leaves.
Patience is our value of the month for January.
Patience is the ability to count down before you blast off. Learning to have patience in different situations is an important skill that has a positive impact on everyone around us.
On Tuesday 4th December, nursery performed ‘A King is Born’ at St Michael’s and All Angels church for parents and teachers.
Well done to all the children in nursery for putting on an excellent festive performance, and a big thank you to all who attended.
Each form have been taking it in turns today to visit the crib at St Michael’s and All Angels Church. They took it in turns to see the crib and advent calendar, whilst Father Edward spoke to them about the message of the festive season.
A very festive morning was had in Reception today, as both forms performed the Christmas nativity. With lots of effort from pupils, parents and teachers the classes put on a brilliant show, singing all the songs and delivering their lines with enthusiasm. We had a wide range of fantastic costumes from angels to elephants including donkeys, shepherds and stars.
Well done to everyone involved and a big thank you for all the parents who attended and joined in with the singing at the end!
A lovely evening was had by all at the CBPPS Christmas Concert last night (Thursday 6th December).
The concert started with all years joining in with The Sussex Carol, before Form 6 took to the stage to perform scenes from the nativity. With lovely performances throughout the night from Year 2 (Jingle Jingle Jingle), Form 3 (Feliz Navidad), Form 4 (Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!), Form 5 (White Christmas) and Form 6 (Ballad of the Breadman), the event was a huge success.
The Choir sang Oh Holy Night/ Silent Night and a rocking rendition of The Reindeer Rock, before the whole school (and audience!) ended the concert with Oh Come All Ye Faithful.
Thank you to everyone who came to the concert, and to all those involved for your hard work.
As part of their history project for this term, Form 5 got creative this week and bought in baked treats and sweet meats from the Victorian era. With a whole centuries worth of recipes to choose from we saw Victoria Sponges, Apple Charlotte cake, sweets dates wrapped in bacon, mince pies and more. Well done Form 5!
With Christmas only three weeks away, Form 6 put their creative hats on to decorate the school tree yesterday. Traditionally decorated by Form 6 every year, the newly adorned tree is now sitting proudly in the school reception, adding lots of festive cheer for pupils and teachers.
The children have had a great week finding out about the Jewish festival of Hanukkah. They listened carefully to the story and learnt how to play the dreidel game, which was so much fun. Some fantastic menorahs were also painted and drawn by the children. Thank you to Zoe’s mum for coming in to teach us about this special festival. The children loved getting their own dreidel and gold coin to take home.
