Charivari 2019

Thank you to all the families that attended the Charivari parade last Saturday. It was a very hot day but it is a fantastic event to be involved in with the children looking great in their costumes and sounding loud with their whistles!

Alexander Graham Bell – Sharks

Today the children made ‘interactive posters’ about the inventions and achievements of Alexander Graham Bell… If these pictures are not used to embarrass the children on their 18th birthday, something has gone wrong. Mr. J

Year 4 Trip – D-Day 75 – Shorncliffe Military Cemetery / Gurkha Visitor Centre

Today Year 4 visited Shorncliffe Military Cemetery and the Gurkha Visitor Centre on Sir John Moore Barracks. At the Cemetary, Peter Anderson (local historian) showed us around the cemetery and brought to life the stories of the fallen. The children also had a moment of silence to remember those that fell 75 years ago on the beaches of Normandy. Afterwards, we visited the Gurkha Visitor Centre and was able to explore the exciting history of the Brigade of Gurkhas.

Music Enrichment Day – Term 6

Wednesday 5th June was our 3rd Music Enrichment Day, with music being a specific focus in our school curriculum this year.

The children were very excited to be privileged enough to enjoy a jazz concert in the Main School Hall led by Matt Miles and his Work8hop band.

The focus for this day was to develop the children’s understanding of musical composition and improvisation as well as some excellent activities planned for them by their teachers in their classes.

Each class had a workshop session with either Matt Miles or Peter Cook, who are both professional jazz musicians and experts in this field.

What a unique experience our children have enjoyed!

Sharks – Karate Lesson

Today, the Sharks had a Karate lesson run by Shepway Sports Trust… Although Mr James is Grand Master 10th Dan in Karate, he felt it was important to give other coaches a chance 😉

The Sharks learnt what to do if approached by a stranger and also learnt some basic karate moves.
