On the 12th July the Junior and one Unique hub class had a fantastic day at Lodge Hill Activity Centre. The children got the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities which included High and Low Zipline, abseiling, climbing, sno-tubing, mountain biking and Karting. There were squeals of nervous excitement ringing through the trees for the whole day as children challenged themselves to undertake activities that they initially thought too scary or too difficult. It was amazing to see the pride on the faces of the children and their accompanying adults after they had made it down the abseiling tower or up the climbing wall. It was a brilliant day during which many of the children tried and succeeded at new activities.
During the summer term the children in Primary were joined by some of their friends in the Unique hub on a trip to Washbrooks Farm.
They had a wonderful time meeting all of the animals and got to stroke many animals including goats, rabbits and dogs.
Everyone went on a tractor ride around the farm to see the bigger animals including the woolly Alpacas.
The children enjoyed exploring the play park especially bouncing on the big pillow and the pirate ship!

The Federation’s West Worthing 5k & 10k Fun Run was a great success! We had over 300 competitors running along the seafront with many raising extra money through sponsorship. Several staff members from all three schools put on their running shoes for the event so a huge thank you to them. And thank you to everyone that helped out; our marshals, water givers, donation collectors, cake bakers and sellers and crowd cheerers! It was lovely to see lots of people out in the rain to support our schools making a great atmosphere at the start and finish line and awards ceremony. We had good feedback from some runners and we look forward to making next year’s event even bigger, walkers and runners of all abilities will be welcome! We would like to say a very big thank you to Ridge Crest Cleaning for providing the registration marquee and collection buckets.
Amy has successfully completed her Champion Level Coaching in Schools and attended a presentation with other members of staff from the federation.
