The 'Weekly' Update is back! (We have been very busy - honest!)
There have been many developments whilst we have been on hiatus. As many will have heard, we have been successful in a bid to take charge at The Bridge Community Centre - which is winding down. We are all very exited to see the new possibilities this brings.
Lian and Emily have been exiting additions to our staff team, and seem to be fitting in very well. They have now heard all of Barry's jokes and read a good chunk of the files.
Brad moved on to pastures new, and is missed by all.
Stacy is off on maternity leave (See you in 2019!)
Summertime is coming and shorts are becoming more and more commonplace.
We have had the pool table resurfaced in a new blue cloth.
Joe's new Locker
If you have talked to Joe in the past few months you may have heard him talking about 'my new locker'. He has had his eyes set on a locker that used to house the golf clubs, with the ambition of turning it into a Tardis themed locker to replace his current one. (Maybe he hopes it will be bigger on the inside!) After several weeks of sanding, painting and repainting, it is ready!! Well done Joe!

My carers new apple mac computer - Jamie
my carers old apple mac she had for 12 years
on her old apple mac everything was dying on her like her emails and would take a couple of hours to come
her new apple mac is identical to the parchments apple mac but my carers apple mac as bigger screen. When I went to book my coach ticket it wouldn't let us get to the booking stage so my carer had a friend to transfer everything from her old mac to her new mac. The transfer took 10hrs to complete. Then I went back to national express to book coach ticket and it let us get to the next step. When she first got her new apple mac most the programmes required adobe flash player. Like her playing games on Facebook. I like my carer new apple mac because it is faster than her old one. my carers new apple mac when we printed my coach ticket it printed double sided. I give my carers new apple mac 10 out 10.

I was really proud of myself. I was swimming all the time I was there. My friends where playing with a beach ball. Playing catcth when they had enough of swimming.

My trip to Doncaster - Cameron McMillan
I went to Doncaster to visit my sister Milena, Danny her fiance and my baby nephew Carter.
I went in the blue car with Dad and my younger sister Isabella.
Once we got to Doncaster I saw Carter and then i had curry for dinner which my Stepmum made.
We stayed the night in the living room.
I slept on a green camp bed which we once took to France.
I woke up and chilled with my stepmum Angelica and Carter then i had lunch at the White Horse Inn.
For lunch, i had a starter which was prawns a main which was roast pork and a dessert which was malteaser cheesecake.
After having lunch I headed back home to Hastings.
Sometimes a good bit of research can change the way we look at the world. In numeracy, we decided to head out around the block to do a vehicle survey. We split into two groups, one noted the colours of the vehicles they encountered, another noted the types of vehicle (cars, vans etc.) Once back at base we began practising our graphs so that we could publish the research that we came back with.
We gathered some comprehensive data, and worked as a group to create some of the interesting graphs that you see below. This research will no doubt influence car buying habits for years to come. (YELLOW IS NOT COOL)
