Bexhill Bulletin

Summer Term 2018/19 Week Beginning 20th May


 Dear Parents and Carers, 

Wise Games

As you are aware all of our KS2 children are attended Gateshead International Stadium. Bexhill did ever so well and came first in the overall winners in the elite section. Children were presented this week in school with their medals.


The final payment for London was due today (£70). Please remember to complete:

  • Calpol letter
  • Declaration forms and emergency contact forms.
  • Come into school to complete a care plan if necessary (before or after school).
  • Send in an envelope £10 money for tea on the journey home.

If you were unable to attend the parent meeting we had


To launch our topic which is focusing on stories and support the ‘BookTrust’ charity we are going to take part in the pyjamarama event. We value the importance of reading and the impact of bedtime reading to a child and this event is to raise awareness of this. On Friday 7th June we would love it if your child could come in wearing their pyjamas (if they don’t wish to take part then they must come in wearing their uniform) with their favourite story. Throughout the day the children are going to make food and creative crafts linked to stories and then we are going to have some hot chocolate and bed time stories!

To support this charity please donate £1 and to support us in providing all of the food and creative materials, please donate an additional 50p(£1.50) altogether please.

Thank you for your continued support.



This week Mrs Potts has started her maternity leave. We will let you know when her bundle of joy arrives. Mrs Major (who currently job shares with Mrs Potts) is going to teach the class full time until the end of this summer term.


It’s that time of year again where the sun shines and little arms and faces get burnt! Please can you apply suncream at home. EYFS have had a separate letter regarding this.

For all other children they may need to top up during the day, so they can bring sun cream in (with their names on). Please train them to apply this themselves and staff will only intervene when necessary.


If you require new uniform for September, we urge you to do this sooner rather than later. This is to avoid disappointment and to ensure your uniform arrives in time. If you require more information about sizes etc then Emblematic will be at Town End Primary School on Tuesday 11th June (8:15-9:30 or 3:15-5:00 pm) You can order on this day and view their samples. All orders are with Emblematic and not school. You can of course order on their website directly.


This week we focused on a story called 1000 dresses. This linked to gender reassignment. The values we discussed this week were kindness, tolerance and resilience.

Half Term

Please remember that we break up today for half term and we come back to school on Tuesday 4th June.



This weeks attendance is 95%

Miss Hayne’ class won the attendance award with 100%  Well done everyone. 


Well done to Darling house House who won the cup this week by collecting so many Class Dojo’s!
