Palatine Primary School received a cheque for £330 from Lianne Ritchie who is a parent of a fomer pupil. Lianne raised the money by taking part in the 10K Mud Monster Run that took place on the 8th October 2016. Palatine Primary is a special school which caters for pupils with moderate, severe and profound learning difficulties and the school is fundraising to install a Multi-Use Games Area for our junior children and also for the local community to use. Many of Lianne’s friends and family donated to the Crowd Funding page that she set up and the school is very grateful for the donation.
If you would like to help Palatine Primary in their fundraising then please contact Jacqueline McGregor, Business Manager, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
In Lemurs they have been looking at different forces. What makes our car move? Why are some faster than others? Ask a Lemur to find out why.
Harvest festival was a happy colourful time for all the pupils in the unique hub. We sang along to our favourite traditional harvest songs, such as “Big Red Combine Harvester” whilst we explored a variety of red sensory objects.
Pumpkin and apple rolling followed which was great fun for all and we quietened down the mood to the gentle song “Autumn Leaves” as we watched and handled the beautiful coloured leaves from our grounds.
A big thank you to all the families who came to share harvest with us and all the donations of food which have gone to the Worthing Homeless Project.

We created a number of forts to keep ourselves safe from the weather this week. We all chose which material we wanted to make it out of and then tested it by blowing REALLY hard on it.
Some of our forts fell down, so we had to improve them!
‘Wow’, Owen Thorpe made it to the Top 5 for Worthing in the Project Oggbots Design-A-Robot Competition. A massive well done Owen.
As a competition entry school all our children can claim 10% off their tickets for Project: Oggbots using the code ROBOTCOMP.
Oggbots is on at the Jubiliee Library, Brighton from the 4th June to the 5th June 2016
Lemurs have been looking at simulators this week and how we can control and interact with different things to get a desired response. It may just look like we are playing games, but like all good lemurs we are really hard at work (playing and having fun)!
Seahorse class took part in a ‘Sponsored Splash’ for Sports Relief. The children used their arms and legs to splash as much as they could in their swimming session. The rest of the class were taking part in a sponsored ‘Step’ and a sponsored ‘Stretch’ in class and in the playground.
Other classes in the school took part in a mini mile and assault course in the hall to raise as much money for Sports Relief as possible.
Please remember to send your sponsor forms to school.
A big thank you to the students of Oakgrove College for helping with the events.
Parrot class had a fantastic trip to the library for World Book Day. We listened to different stories and joined in rhymes and songs. We also got to explore the library and count how many computers we could see. Back at school we had a Reading Buddies session with Lemur class where we listened to and acted out the story of Handa’s surprise.
