The Mayor invited our Year 5 children to hand over the petition which had been signed by 1601 people to Arun District Councillors. the petition is asking for a safe cycle path from Arundel to Ford station. The children made posters and spoke with the Councillors, explaining why they thought it was a good idea.

Last week we were able to all join together in the cathedral to celebrate the Risen Lord. The whole school, in separate bubbles, enjoyed thanking God for the life of Christ. Each family brought in flowers from home to decorate the cross which was placed on the altar. It was wonderful to be able to join together in worship.
This week each class have depicted a part of the Easter story through music, prayer and drama. These were recorded and played to each class as part of their week of liturgies.
The mayor came to help some of the younger children plant seeds int he school allotment. The seeds were donated by The Wildflower Project. One packet of seeds for every child. The younger children have planted the seeds on the school site but key stage 2 children have taken the seeds home to plant.
The idea is that the wildflowers grow and become food sources for bees who are pollinators.
