Term 4 Update- SUCCESS!


This term's house competition, led by Scotney, is a design competition. Over the holidays, you can design a new winner's certificate for sports day next term. It must represent 'Sport at Ashdown'- be as creative as you like for Mollie and Hugo, the Scotney captains and judges.

Meanwhile, the results are in, and Arundel are the winners of the term 4 house point competition! Well done to all of the Arundelians for earning house points by showing respect, resilience, opportunity, trust, citizenship, and this term's value: support. There will be a non-uniform day next term as a reward- see the newsletter for the date. I hope you have a terrific Easter holiday!

Term 4 News 



Welcome back, Arundelians. It's been a while since we've won a house point competition- remember to show all six of our values: Respect, Resilience, Opportunity, Support, Trust and Citizenship to earn points in Term 4. This term we are focusing on Support especially, so help others where you can.


In other news, this terms inter-house competition (led by Scotney) will be one that let's you flex your creative muscles. That's all I'm saying for now... More information soon!


Term 3 News



Term 3 Update

For the final two weeks of term, all of the Boom Reader Journal Logs were counted for each house. The house with the most logs received a bonus 100 house points for the house point competition, and the house in second received 50. It was a close competition, but Bodiam pipped us to the post! 2nd place is very respectable Arundel, and it helped close the gap in the house competition (also won by Bodiam), leaving us in 3rd place overall. Here's hoping that we can do even better and cinch the win next term. Well done everybody.



Watch this space, another house competition is a-comin'!


Term 2 News



Well done Arundelians, together you have won the house points competition! There will be a non-uniform day on the first day back after Christmas to reward you for your efforts.

University Challenge - University College Oxford


The house competition this term is a University Challenge style quiz competition, led by Bodiam. Make sure you get into a team comprising of a year 3, year 4, year 5 and year 6. Let's go Arundelians!


Although a team from Arundel didn't make the final, we commend the winners from Scotney.

Term 1 News



The house competition this term is a Times Tables Rockstars Tournament, led by our new house captains, Elsie and Jess S.

Each time that you compete for Arundel, your score will combine and go towards our house total - so get on line, have fun and practise those times tables!







It may not have been the result we hoped for, but well done Arundel for a well-contested tournament. Let's get 1st in the next competition!

However, what we do need to appreciate is that we had some top times tables players who gave their all for Arundel:

3rd most valuable player: Elsie (Year 4)

2nd most valuable player: Henry (Year 5)

1st most valuable player: Millie (Year 6)


House Point Competition

Unfortunately, we came third in the house point competition for the term, but with that said,  there were only 16 points between the top three so it was a close thing!  Congratulations to Bodiam, and to my Arundelians: let's work even harder next term!
