This has been great for the Tudor topic in Year 4! Greta asked if the builders would come in and tell the children how Tudor houses were made and what materials were used. They actually showed them the structure and tools that would have been used!</p> <p>The children had a great morning finding out all this information, thank you Evans Conservation Builders!</p> <p><img alt="" src="/images/news/maynews17/Tudor_Builders2.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 188px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/maynews17/Tudor_Builders1.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 188px;" /></p> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/news/maynews17/Tudor_Builders1.jpgWed, 24 May 2017 15:25:03 GMTYear 4's Tudor Marchhttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-22-year-4-s-tudor-marchhttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-22-year-4-s-tudor-march<p>Killer Whales had an amazing day walking to Camber Castle on Monday.</p> <p>In English, they had written play-scripts all about Henry VIII and Tudor Times to perform in the castle. Their homework was to create a Tudor hat to wear on the trip. The children performed their plays in character and did really well. They were lucky enough to have a guided tour of the Castle. Andy taught them all about how the coast has changed and the Castle was built to defend. They even got to go through the underground tunnels!</p> <p><img alt="" src="/images/news/maynews17/yr4_tudor_walk2.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 188px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/maynews17/yr4_tudor_walk1.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 333px;" /></p> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/news/maynews17/yr4_tudor_walk.jpgWed, 24 May 2017 15:23:12 GMT'Cooking for the Family' Coursehttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-22-cooking-for-the-family-coursehttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-22-cooking-for-the-family-course<p>Yesterday saw the end of our &#39;Cooking for the Family&#39; course.

Despite the cold they were still able to spot many African and Asian animals and were very lucky to get close to a giraffe family!</p> <p>By the time they started their long walk up through the zoo more animals were starting to appear and they saw tigers, cheetahs, cheeky&nbsp;monkeys (not the children!) and gorillas, where a rather feisty silverback decided to show them who was boss.</p> <p>The stars of the trip were most definitely the children who were well behaved, polite, curious and knowledgeable. They were very proud to be on a trip as Rye Primary!</p> <p><img alt="" src="/images/news/maynews17/yr1_port_lympne4.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 333px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/maynews17/yr1_port_lympne2.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 188px;" />&nbsp;<img alt="" src="/images/news/maynews17/yr1_port_lympne.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 333px;" /></p> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/news/maynews17/yr1_port_lympne5.jpgWed, 24 May 2017 15:05:45 GMTOur new Willow Gardenhttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-11-our-new-willow-gardenhttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-11-our-new-willow-garden<p>We hope you have all noticed the work which has been taking place in our Willow Garden this week.

The venue houses the Kew Millenium Seed Bank which is a huge Science laboratory aiming to develop a collection of seeds from every plant on the planet.</p> <p>Jellyfish and Marlin spent the day examining plants under extremely powerful microscopes and marveling at such close-up views. They explored some of the grounds in search of seeds from a variety of species, in order to determine how they were dispersed for future growth. The children had an enlightening time observing &#39;real&#39; scientists at work who were sorting seeds from abroad and dissecting them. They even had the chance to handle the largest seed in the world from the coco de mer plant.</p> <p>Everybody really enjoyed the day and were buzzing with their new knowledge all the way back to school.</p> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/18358672_803328743156074_6988289198252220971_o.jpgThu, 11 May 2017 11:27:58 GMTKiller Whales are Super Scientists!http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-killer-whales-are-super-scientistshttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-killer-whales-are-super-scientists<p>Killer Whales invited their &#39;Buddy Class&#39; Sardines along to their classroom on Wednesday&nbsp;to watch a science experiment.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> Mrs Sarkies had given Killer Whales a science backpack which a child takes home every weekend.

They played brilliantly in their first game and with goals from Fred and Stan they beat Beckley 2 - 0. The team then faced Peasmarsh who played well against them and it was a scrappy game. Despite all the chances they drew 0 - 0.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> They qualified in the semi-final and faced a very good Guestling team. The team started fast and with a superb strike from Fred they took the lead. They battled on, both teams had chances but they held on to their 1 - 0 win which put them in the final where they were up against Winchelsea.<br /> <br /> The game was very close, both teams standing strong then Dec took a throw-in, which caused chaos in the Winchelsea box and was turned in by one of their defenders. It was once again a very close game with Captain Liam making his trademark crunching tackles and Kian making some fantastic saves.<br /> <br /> Kian took a brilliant goal kick which landed at Fred&#39;s feet for him to calmly slot through the keeper&#39;s legs into the goal, 2.- 0. They game ended shortly after and the boys were once again crowned champions.&nbsp;<br /> <br /> They were all brilliant and performed their roles to the best of their ability. Well done boys and thank you to everyone who went along to support the team!&nbsp;<img alt="" aria-hidden="1" height="16" src="https://static.xx.fbcdn.net/images/emoji.php/v8/f4c/1/16/1f642.png" width="16" /></p> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/news/18118737_796857780469837_3278000680497438399_n.jpgFri, 05 May 2017 09:47:11 GMTPeasmarsh Football Tournament http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-peasmarsh-football-tournamenthttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-05-peasmarsh-football-tournament<p>Last week our Year 1 boys and Year 2 girls entered the Peasmarsh Tournament and played some brilliant football!<br /> Fletcher snatched a 1-0 win as the whistle went in the first game, the team won the next two games with ease and scored some great goals.

For example Linah from Madagascar, who said that collecting water had been the toughest task she had to deal with, however, since WaterAid installed a pump at the back of their house, it is now the easiest task.</p> <p>There are s<span class="text_exposed_show">till hundreds of children who have to walk up to 10 miles morning and evening to collect fresh water, that equates to 35 times around a football pitch! If they don&#39;t go to get fresh water, they will just get sicker and sicker and may even die. Poppy, Greta, Rocky, Oliver and Mitchel were selected carry a bucket weighing the same as a bucket of water around the hall during the rest of the assembly. </span></p> <div class="text_exposed_show"> <p>Lisa then explained that when &pound;15.00 has been raised it covers the cost for one child to have safe water. &pound;30.00 will fund a toilet for a whole family and &pound;50.00 a hand pump for clean water. Minnows and Sardines children were very pleased to learn that the money they raised from their collection outside the front door last week will fund a pump!</p> <p>Lisa, Livvie and Rose then went into the Reception classes to work with the children on pictures of the weather and raindrops. These will be exhibited at a &#39;pop-up gallery&#39; in Rye Retreat during the week commencing 24th April leading up to their cake sale on Saturday 29th April. Please pop into the salon to see the children&#39;s artwork during that week - for further information please ring the Rye Retreat on 01797 222211.</p> </div> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/17492566_778594935629455_5444116865422768674_o.jpgTue, 28 Mar 2017 15:46:11 GMTSpring Fair and Easter Paradehttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-03-27-spring-fair-and-easter-paradehttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-03-27-spring-fair-and-easter-parade<div class="_5pbx userContent" data-ft="{&quot;tn&quot;:&quot;K&quot;}" id="js_1s"> <p>We were very lucky that the rain held off for our Easter Parade!

While they were digging to build the new school extension one of the builders found two very old pieces of paper. One was a letter and one was a story and a map.</p> <p>When Mr Playford read the letter and story he soon discovered it was written by an explorer from the Arctic. Mr Playford knew that Year 3 were currently learning about Antarctica and the Arctic so he took the letter and story straight to them. When Mr Gurr and Miss Brunton read the letter and story they couldn&#39;t believe their eyes. The letter and story had to be over 50 years old!

This is a&nbsp;phenomenal achievement and thanks to the hard work of all the Key Stage 1 staff led by Mrs Alex Wilson.</p> <p>In their Y2 SATs we are particularly proud of our most able children as we achieved&nbsp;double the National averages for children working at a greater depth of understanding. This is down to the focus on high expectations at Rye Primary &ndash; well done KS1.</p> <p>In their Y6 SATs our children rose to the challenge of much harder tests and have achieved progress scores in line with National data, with particular success for our&nbsp;disadvantaged children. Well done Y6 and keep up the good work in Year 7!</p> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/news/success.jpgFri, 30 Sep 2016 13:39:33 GMTYr 6 Visit the Imperial War Museum, London.http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-11-08-yr-6-visit-the-imperial-war-museum-londonhttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-11-08-yr-6-visit-the-imperial-war-museum-london<p>Year 6 had a fabulous trip to London&#39;s Imperial War Museum on Tuesday!

The children then did some &#39;ditch dipping.&#39; This involved using a fishing net to find animals in the ditch. They then put them in small containers and investigated the animals they had found. Barry from Rye Harbour Nature Reserve was able to help them identify a saucer bug, water beetle and water scorpion among many other animals.</p> <p>After lunch the children then used binoculars to watch birds feeding, swimming, diving and resting. they identified birds such as swans, swallows and ducks.</p> <p>Later on the children went on a mini beast hunt using the school&#39;s new science equipment. This was great fun and the children even managed to find dragon flies and moths as well as Antony the ant!</p> <p>The long walk home certainly tired the children out but they were still fantastically behaved.

They come to England to train to become doctors, teachers, builders or leaders then go back to their country to share their knowledge and help less fortunate people.</p> <p>The assembly linked in very well with the Rights Respecting Schools Project which we are currently involved with and the children were eager to hear how just helping one person can make such a difference to so many people, and the fact that everyone around the world should have the same opportunities. They all agreed that &quot;Helping people is awesome!&quot;</p> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/news/Bugsy_Pestalozzi.jpgFri, 29 Apr 2016 14:58:30 GMTVictorian Rye Primaryhttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-03-18-victorian-rye-primaryhttp://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-03-18-victorian-rye-primary<p>On Friday Sharks and Dolphins were transported back in time to the 19th Century.

Andrea will be overseeing the safety aspects of the new build, making sure that fences are erected to keep everyone out and that all possible safety precautions are put in place, while Mark will ensure that the dimensions etc. of the building are correct and it is on track.<br /> <br /> Andrea explained the da<span class="text_exposed_show">ngers of working on a building site, and therefore the importance of children keeping well away at all times. We have a few sets of safety clothing, hi-vis jackets, safety hard hats, safety gloves and safety glasses which they have left for children to try on.<br /> <br /> Morgan Sindall will be installing windows in the fencing and corridors so that children can look through and watch the building take shape. We are very excited about the project and will keep you updated.<br /> <br /> We also have a few budding builders among our children, as we found out when Andrea asked &quot;Who would like to be a builder when they grow up?!&quot;</span></div> http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/images/news/Morgan_Sindall.jpgWed, 16 Mar 2016 11:06:04 GMTWorld Book Day 2016http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-03-04-world-book-day-2016-1http://ryeprimary.e-sussex.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-03-04-world-book-day-2016-1<p style="margin-bottom: 6px; color: rgb(20, 24, 35); font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif; line-height: 19.31999969482422px;">To commemorate World Book Day yesterday, we held a competition.
