  • Friday 7 June 2024 Enterprise Fair Today year 6 were excited to launch their Enterprise Fair to the whole of the school in support of NGM Ministeries who we are raising money for. For 3 days the children worked as a small team to put together experiences that the whole school could enjoy, some were water, some were sports and some were craft. We had a great afternoon and here are some photos for you to enjoy!
  • Friday 24 May 2024 Greek Day Year 5 enjoyed many activities on Greek Day. We had a mini Olympics with challenges including, the discus, standing long jump, javelin and running. In different groups we made meatballs, tzatziki and Greek salad, which we later enjoyed in the afternoon during a Greek Banquet. We made top trumps for many Greek Gods and Godesses, tried out some tricky tongue twisters and played an Ancient Greece themed 'would you rather?' The children all looked fantastic in their costumes and took part really well.
  • Thursday 23 May 2024 Rugby League Festival The Healthy Lifestyles Team for Brighton and Hove organise various activites for the children to take part in. Some of our Year 5 and 6 went along to a rugby league festival held at Brighton University. Their attitude was very good and they had fun developing rugby skills. The idea was to 'take part' without being competitive. Mrs Robins accompanied the children and commented that she felt very proud and the children represented Aldrington school well.
  • Tuesday 7 May 2024 i360 & Nature Walk We had a fantastic day, first visiting the i360 and then on to Benfield Valley where the children enjoyed a picnic, a nature walk, catching bugs in the grass and looking through magnifying pots to see how many different bugs there were before letting them go again, followed by a fun time in the playground. We had the privilege of some time with the lovely volunteers at the Benfield Valley Project.

In the morning, we were so fortunate to meet a range of animals some small, some large! We saw everything from newborn goats to shire horses. It was an amazing opportunity to be able to pet the animals. Then we went for a tractor ride- we held on tight as it was a bit bumpy! In the afternoon, we enjoyed some down time. The children loved the bouncy pillow, bicycles and the wooden obstacle course. What a brilliant day we shared!
  • Friday 22 March 2024 Aldrington Chicks We have been fortunate enough to have some hen eggs in an incubator in the Year 1 classrooms. 4 of those have now hatched and are doing really well, with the care of the year 1 staff and children, a few year 6 girls and Tess, our amazing animal whisperer !! The children have been so fascinated to see them grow and it's so exciting and heart-warming to hear cheeping and chirping the closer you get to the year 1 classrooms. You'll be pleased to know that they will be going to a local farm after here where they will enjoy the outdoors and life as intended for them.
