Owls Class visited Canterbury Library this week and took part in an Origami Workshop. They had the opportunity to create some paper Christmas tree decorations that will be displayed on the Christmas tree in the library.
All the children had a great time and enjoyed learning a new skill. They were a credit to the school and we are very proud of them!
Owl Class led the Remembrance assembly and shared some very emotional poetry based on Flanders Fields. Parents were invited to the assembly and we were joined by Mr Bodham who has served with Royal Army and 16 Para Heavy Drop. The whole school honoured the two minutes silence. It was a moving assembly that the children took pride in leading. Thank you to all the parents that supported us and to Mr Bodham for joining us.
Two Year 6 children were lucky enough to go and spend the morning in the science labs at Junior Kings School on 9th November as part of their Saturday Smarties Science Masterclass. They had the opportunity to complete different experiments and really enjoyed taking part.
We are looking forward to more events with Kings School in the future.
We held a coffee morning in aid of MacMillian Cancer Support inviting parents and members of the community to join us.
Parents and staff donated lots of delicious cakes which we enjoyed, thank you to those parents that were able to attend it was lovely to meet you all.
As we had so many cakes left we were able to hold a cake sale on the playground at the end of the day. Between both events we raised £50.00 to send to a worthwhile charity.
Thank you for your generosity and support.
The children had a visit from The Kent Road Safety Club and learnt about road safety.
They listened carefully to our visitor and learnt about the importance of being safe when crossing the road.
We had a lovely time and learnt a valuable lesson.
Jeans for Genes 2019
The children all took part in the fund raising event of Jeans for Genes. They paid a donation to wear the Jeans for the day. We learnt about the importance of this charity and how it helps children and adults with genetic disorders raising funds to support research.
We raised a fantastic £40.00 to send to the charity. Thank you everyone for your support with this.
