We'd like to say a big thank you to our governors who do so much and volunteer their time to provide challenge and support to the school.

Thank you!
We're taking part in activities to celebrate Safer Internet Day at CRJS.
We encourage all families to have open and honest discussions about the use of the internet and ways to keep you all safe online.
Next week, we will be taking part in Safer Internet Day. Here are some resources to help you ensure that your children know how to access the digital world safely.
This week, find out about keeping your children safe when accessing YouTube.
We have received a lovely thank you letter from the team at Phyllis Tuckwell, Hospice Care. We raised a massive £1961.74 by taking part in the Reindeer Run. Thank you to all of you who supported such a deserving cause.
Thank you to all those who have made their applications already. We just wanted to remind you that Saturday is the deadline for Year 3 admission applications. If you haven't yet done yours and want to ask any questions about what it's like to be a pupil at Crawley Ridge, please do give us a call and we'll be happy to help.

We're looking forward to welcoming lots of new families in September and will be in touch with new admissions once places are announced in April.
Happy New Year! Please make some time to read our first online safety update of 2022.

From all of us here at CRJS, we wish you a very Merry Christmas.

See you in 2022!
Please visit the Year Group Blogs to watch the CRJS Christmas Carols for 2021.
The blogs can be accessed through the school website and passwords were shared at the start of the year.

We hope you enjoy watching the children perform for you and we wish you a very Merry Christmas!
With the holiday season approaching, we wanted to remind you that applications for admissions to Year 3 in September 2022 need to be made by January 15th.

We're looking forward to welcoming you to the Crawley Ridge family.
Year 6 have been learning all about World War II this term, including the significance of the music to keeping morale high across the Allied nations.

They have completed research on Dame Vera Lynn and listened to some of her most famous tracks. During music lessons, they have learnt to sing 'Hey, Mr Miller!' in the round and recorded it to share with families at home. To conclude their lessons on this period, the children learnt how locate chord 'C' on the keyboard and play it within a chosen Christmas song.
Each year group will have their Christmas party this week. The children are invited to wear their party clothes all day on their party day.

Monday- Year 6
Tuesday- Year 5
Wednesday- Year 3
Thursday- Year 4

Forest School with Year 4 this week has been all about emotions and the feelings that come with them.

We spent time around the fire circle discussing how emotions make us feel. We then set the children a challenge to choose an emotion and recreate them using natural resources.

Here are Miss Contentment, Mrs Astonished and Mr Anxiety.

Today we celebrated Ocean Day. Year 3 learnt how waves cause coastal erosion, Year 4 learnt how fertilisers and other chemicals enter our oceans and Years 5 & 6 focused on Plate Tectonics. The day was a mix of science and geography. Some children brought in the most amazing dioramas they had made at home. Well done to all.


Well done to the Year 5 cricket team who played in a tournament yesterday. It was lovely to see them enjoying a sunny afternoon of sport.

Year 5 had a great day yesterday exploring the Mary Rose Museum and playing in the fabulous grounds of Goodwood House.


Proudly presenting our brand new Forest School shelter.
With special thanks to: Vivienne Chapman whose funding made this project possible; the PTA for contributing to the roof; Wells King for organising and delivering our materials; the Forest school team and partners for their expert construction and Mr Cherry for the genius seating

The children now have a beautiful barn that complements our wonderful woodland. It gives us an outdoor space that’s dry and windproof for us to hone our Forest School skills when the weather is against us. It will make a huge difference to the children in the winter.

So grateful for everyone involved in this project. It’s wonderful what we can achieve when we all come together. This is what forest school is all about .


A big well done to our Year 6 cricket team for drawing on all their skills and courage to take part in the Cricket Tournament this afternoon. I was very proud of you all.


The children loved the new sand pit. If anyone has a lidded sand pit they don't want anymore, we would love to add to this area of the school.

We are so lucky to have a dipping pond in our grounds which enables us to study habitats without leaving the school. The grounds also make SATs revision much more fun when it takes the form of a maths trail with questions and answers to find.

Our school grounds are looking stunning in their spring colours.



Teamwork is something we are working on this term in Forest School. With our 'popcorn challenge', we are encouraging each class to think about others and explore opportunities of working with new partners.

It is lovely to hear children describing collaborative working as something that's fully inclusive and top marks for a member of Elm Class who used the Team acronym-
Together. Everyone. Always . Matters.

Extra points to Elm Class for this perfect description.

Thank you to our Chair of Governors, Fiona Torley, for donating a magnolia tree as part of the late Queen's Green Canopy. Our Eco Council enjoyed planting the tree which will be the centerpiece of our pond area as it grows.

At Crawley Ridge we have become passionate about what will happen to Antarctica when the treaty protecting it is reviewed in 2041. We have made our own pledge to recycle more to help the environment. Our Antarctica 2041 club studied all aspects of Antarctica and finished by making ice cream.

Year 6 used all their senses, except taste, to explore Mediterranean food and build up a bank of vocabulary for their Sicilian travel brochures.

Year 4 travelled back to Ancient Greece on Thursday and explored what it would have been like to live all those years ago. The children were so excited by all of the activities.


Greek salad was on the menu this week in Forest School.

We enjoyed talking about the Ancient Greeks and what their diet consisted of. This lead us on to the children embracing community cooking by preparing a Greek salad. We then sampled some traditional food from Greece, including Tzatziki and hummus.

All the children embraced the whole experience, despite their being some very strong flavours on the menu. Well done year 4.


One of our children let Steve Backshall know that he was the inspiration for his World Book Day costume. Steve very kindly sent us this response. How amazing!

Year 5 visited Hampton Court on Thursday and were amazed by its size and grandeur. They had a very challenging workshop, which made them think about historical bias, as well as enjoying the sights of the palace.

Year 6 'flew' to Sicily on Thursday as part of their English work on travel brochures. They took their tickets, prepared their passports and wrote their own highly informative travel guides.
