The last half term of the academic year is one for celebration and excitement. We are able to look back on all that the children have achieved throughout the year whilst also anticipating the new and interesting adventures that lie ahead.

Outings to Brighton Sealife Centre and Godstone Farm along with storytelling and theatre visits to school have been arranged to extend and develop the children’s learning. The Reception children are also really looking forward to inviting their Grandparents to school. The preparations are already under way and I think that they are in for a real treat.

The event that we’ve all been looking forward to this term is ‘Sports Day’. The ‘Go faster’ trainers have been out in force this week as I’ve seen some very speedy legs whizzing around the playground. I think that there will be some close competition this year! Please check your calendars for the day of your child’s sports event.

Last but not least, it’s full steam ahead for our Parents Association – DAPA, as they make preparations for the school ‘Summer Fair’ on Saturday 29 June between 10.30am – 12.30pm. If you are free, do come along as there will be something for everyone at this wonderful family event.

As you can see, this half term promises to provide a varied range of experiences for the children to broaden and apply their learning. A great end to a very successful and productive year.

To keep up with all that is happening at school, please keep an eye on the website news, the weekly newsletter or follow us on Twitter or Facebook @DownsendSchool and now also on Instagram @downsendschoolsurrey to catch up with our latest activities.

The Portal links below are full of information about the school. However, if you have any questions or queries that are not answered here, please contact Mrs Hegarty in the school office on 01372 385439 or email
