Y6s bake for the last time

It’s been a week for congratulating this week in Later Years. Last Friday, girls and boys from years 4, 5 and 6 took part in a 1.7km cross country run in Ringmer. 10 schools took part overall and the LNS boys team came 5th and the LNS girls team came 3rd – a wonderful achievement! Huge congratulations to all the children that took part.

Next, we have congratulations to offer to the Y6s who baked for the last time this week as part of running their own enterprises to fund raise for their participation in the PATINA moving on parade this year. After a term of baking, negotiating, collaborating and budgeting, we can announce that we have raised £600 of the £880 needed! Everyone has worked really hard and we’d like to thank the community for investing in our delights as well as in our endeavors. Now it’s over to the PARENT part of PATINA to try and raise the rest of the amount with a Curry n Quiz night for adults next term. Please let Anne-Marie or Loran know if you can help.

Finally, further congratulations are in order for children in Y6 who entered the Jacques Emery essay writing competition (Jess, Daisy, Summer, Loui, Kitty and Kaziah). These children discussed their thoughts on ‘Are men and women equal in today’s world?’ in 500 words. I think all entries were well thought through and showed individual styles. However, the judging panel who read over 80 essays from children throughout the Lewes region, deemed Loui’s essay the overall winner! Congratulations to Loui! Feedback form the panel explained that they felt Loui’s discussion of the question was very individual, using his direct experience of gender inequalities in different settings. His essay will now go through to the National finals, good luck Loui!

Note: Book and Maths clubs next week will be led by teachers. Anne-Marie, Ian, Louise & Ondine
