Sussex Martlets trampoline competition
Quiana (from year 5) was competing for the Sussex Martlets and complied a superb routine including all sorts of flips, twists, jumps and moves that required incredible skill and co-ordination. She finished 5th to earn herself a trophy and also qualify for the next stage of the competition where she will compete against various other counties in Taunton. Well done Quiana!
Year 6 Football Tournament
Some of the year 6 boys went to the Sussex FA stadium in Lancing to compete in the football tournament. The team showed incredible levels of determination and stamina as they played 6 matches back-to-back. The defending was nothing short of heroic at times and a special mention must go to Ethan who was sensational in goal throughout the whole tournament. The team kept 5 clean sheets in their 6 matches – the only blemish coming against the eventual champions Chesswood. Unfortunately, we were finding it difficult to convert our own chances resulting in several 0-0s! Excellent displays against West Park, Heene, TAB, Orchards and Whytemead meant that the team finished in an excellent 3rd out of 7 which they were, deservedly, very proud of.
SCHOOL CROSSING PATROL - ADVANCE WARNING

BROADWATER COMMUNITY AWARD
Earlier this month, Taina and Ella in Year 4 along with Taina's mum and some of their neighbours, dressed as elves, decorated a trolley with lights and went door to door down their street with Christmas music blaring out, to collect donations for the Worthing Soup Kitchen. They had an amazing response with lots of food and gift donations and £111 in cash donations!
Well done Taina and Ella!
WRAP AROUND CARE
Governor visit to Wrap Around Care (Governor visit Report)
The Governors recently had the pleasure of visiting the new Wrap Around Care facility. The Governors have been active in supporting the School in ensuring the new Wrap Around Care facility embraces the ethos of the school and its community.
Since the new facility opened in September, take-up has been excellent with high levels of attendance every day. The children can access a care facility which offers a broad range of experiences which mirror the school, spanning games, sports, arts & crafts, computing, role play, reading and plenty of free choice time, with the line-up changing every day. A healthy menu of fresh food is cooked in a dedicated, newly-refurbished kitchen – with the menu featuring input from the children.
The Governors are proud of the new facilities at the Wrap Around Care club, with staff taking an active role in guiding the children’s experiences. We are sure that this additional service will continue to be well received by parents/carers and by the children who use it. Please visit the website for all information.

Governors' Prayer Letter
Once again we've been blown away by the amazing support parents have shown F@B this term. We know that you (& us) were disappointed about the lack of a Christmas fair but the support for the hamper raffle and lucky dip blew us away, both in terms of donations and participation. This term we raised over £350 from the uniform and cake sales at parents evenings, over £1350 from the hamper raffle & lucky dips and a fabulous £860 from the Christmas cards designs and other Christmas items. So all-in, that's over £2500 to support your school. Thank you all so much for your time, efforts and money to each and everyone .
Looking forward, we desperately need a chairperson to lead us forward, this term has shown that we need a strong leadership to take us forward as well as the highly committed committee to take F@B to the next level. Please let us know if you're able to fill our breach, with warmest Christmas wishes from all at F@B.
We’re a small but dedicated team of parents who organise fundraising events
to support the school. If you would like to know more, please email us.
