Find out about some of things we have been up to as a school lately. Here you will find blogs about a selection of activities, trips, visits and projects we've been involved in. From raising money for local and national charities we think are important to challenging ourselves with opportunities to learn new skills and further our learning. Always making sure we are having fun!
Last week Freya, Millie and Sharon hosted our second celebration service of the year. They did an excellent job hosting at the last minute. Going forward, children will take it in turn to host - including sometimes younger members of our school community.
Fifi and her family attended the Kent Show at the weekend.
Quantum Theatre joined us on Tuesday 21 June to perform an open air production of The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny.
Our Super Heroes
On the last day of term 4 Wells Class led us in our Easter Service. The children did an amazing job... they learned there lines, delivered them confidently, sang with passion and were all round, generally speaking epic. It was lovely to see so many parents come along and support the children too.
Summer term is here and the temperature is finally rising, albeit slowly. The children have really enjoyed playing in the paddock, investigating the space and running riot. Football is back on the menu for key stage 2, for 2 days initially. Miss M reports that the children taking part have enjoyed it very much.
Potter Class had some eggs and an incubator delivered this week, thanks to Mr Thomas. By Friday afternoon they were Proud parents (fleetingly) to 11 chicks. They all produced some amazing chick diaries.
Dahl Class have been busy welcoming their new teacher. This week that have been planting and investigating outside.
Year 3 have been to Forest School: they had an amazing first day! They were all so busy and engaged. In Wells Class this week they have been investigating nappies…
Shakespeare Class have been getting prepared for SATs, whilst continuing with their usual lessons. Ed, in year 5 demonstrated great knowledge about rivers with lots of technical vocabulary.
Amazing result from a fabulous team.
Jacqui from Stay Calm came to see us on March 7th. She is the author of a book that is designed to help children with their feelings.
The 10th of March saw all the children leave the school for the afternoon. Together we embarked on a 3 mile walk across the fields and through the woods.
What an exciting week it has been! We had almost all the children back into school after a spate of covid cases.
This week Potter Class have enjoyed Chinese New Year and on Thursday they cooked a stir fry and set the table for their feast. Shakespeare Class have missed Mr. Hancock but Mrs Coulson has remarked what a fantastic bunch of children they are; she has enjoyed listening to them read out their writing and behave with maturity. Wells Class have been enduring part-whole model division with remainders and have enjoyed orally re-telling the French tale of The White Rat. Whilst Dahl Class have been increasing their time outside and have enjoyed investigating how stretchy socks are! They have been using bar model in maths and dividing. Busy, busy….
