Year 6 Geography trip to the River Cuckmere and Seven Sisters Country Park.

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.

As the twenty-three strong party of Year 6’s walked the high line along the chalk hills overlooking the meanders, stops were made, field sketches drawn and explanations given. The shingle beach, wave cut platform and the spectacular white, vertical, chalk cliff – the first of the Seven Sisters - provided another geographical landscape to discuss. Further field sketches were made under the expert eye of Head of Art Mrs Moore and questions were asked by the enthusiastic boys and girls. We finished the day walking up the steep chalk slope in order to catch spectacular views westwards of the mouth of the River Cuckmere and eastwards along the Seven Sisters themselves towards Birling Gap and Eastbourne. Our ‘scramble’ did little to reduce the footpath erosion which is very much in evidence but by following the footpaths we did not exacerbate it.

A fabulous ‘geography in a day’ was had by pupils and staff alike.

When we found out this year's Junior Production was 'Mary Poppins', we felt excited about what part we would get and how rehearsals would go. Rehearsals started straight away and we realised it wasn't going to be as easy as we thought! It was going to be tough and we would need to work very hard!

Year 7 art trip to the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne

14 November 2019

On Thursday, 9 November Year 7 went on an Art trip to the Towner Gallery in Eastbourne. After a bus journey to Eastbourne College we had a delicious lunch in their canteen. We then walked a short distance to the Towner Gallery which is located right next to the College. It wasn’t hard to miss as there was an amazing mural painted on the side of the building, in all sorts of shapes and colours, celebrating the Towner’s 10th Anniversary.
