Hangleton News!

Summer term is flying by at Hangleton. Everyone is enjoying the glimpses of sunshine and the taste of better weather to come. Walking as a federation for the Children’s parade was a real highlight, it was lovely to see so many parents with us– a fabulous community event. Getting the swimming pool open is always a great sign of summer; the children have enjoyed getting back in the pool for PE. Enjoying our fabulous grounds to enrich the children’s learning is a great sight to see.


Children’s Parade 2024

This year’s Brighton Festival started with a bang this year! Luckily, the sun was shining and we marched with pride. Guest Director Frank Cottrell-Boyce explained this year’s dreamy theme as: ‘good dreams, bad dreams, day dreams, dream teams, sweet dreams… because, as the Monkees sang - we should all be daydream believers. So follow your dreams and make them all come true at The Children’s Parade.’
Groups of local schools have been exploring the theme 'Dream Again', whether that’s dreaming of a brighter future and a better world, or dreaming of something personal. Artists from Same Sky collaborated with teachers, students and volunteers from schools across Brighton & Hove to make magnificent sculptures, choreograph dance routines and compose parade chants. Our samba band was the perfect soundtrack to a fabulous day.

A huge thank you to Mr Cole, Mr Dargavel and Mr Pallot for making it all possible.

Year 3 Trip to the River Ouse

The sun shone and Year Three had a fantastic visit to Lewes Railway Nature Reserve, to reinforce their learning about rivers. This is such a secret gem of a location, nestled in the heart of Lewes and full of natural life. The day was split into two parts, first looking at maps and the river’s course. This was an excellent opportunity to practise key vocabulary and gain a deeper understanding of how rivers are formed. The second part involved pond dipping and learning how to identify mini beasts through a classification chart. The children’s behaviour was exemplary and they loved the opportunity to be outside and active in their learning.

Oracy Assemblies

Mrs McCardie has started running Oracy assemblies for KS2. These are an opportunity for children to unpick and debate a question and use their Oracy skills to share their ideas and their partners. We hope that the children enjoy being more active in their assemblies and talking to people they might not usually talk to.

Tri Golf @ Blatchington Mill

Some of our children from Year 3 had a great time in the sunshine at a Tri Golf festival at Blatchington Mill School. They all showed good determination and worked well as a team to finish in second place after completing eight different golf activities.

Y1 Trip to the Downs

On Wednesday Year 1 walked through Hangleton to the Downs to support our From Here to There topic. This gave the children the chance to view the local area that they have been mapping in school, as well as providing a stimulus for a recount in their writing sessions.

Illegal Parking!

Please can you ensure your car is parked legally when dropping off to school. Parking illegally makes it unsafe for children to cross the road and decreases visibility. Please think about our children!!
