Minster Football team played in good spirits on Friday. Unfortunately, the results did not go our way but we are already looking forward to the next tournament!

These girls had an amazing morning representing Team Minster! Well done girls!

 Minster took a team of 8 children from KS2 to attend a rounders festival held at Upton school.


This was a non-competitive event, which was played in a relaxed atmosphere (with us still wanting to get as many rounders as we could though!).


We had a mixed team from Years 3-6, who all supported, encouraged and cheered on each other throughout.


The children took turns in bowling, fielding and batting and did an excellent job.


Throughout the festival, they demonstrated a great attitude, excellent behaviour and team spirit.


A special mention to the Year 6 children, for not only attending their last rounders event in which they can represent Minster School but also for their encouragement and kindness shown towards the younger children.


Mrs Daw, Mrs Hussey and Mrs Barras are extremely proud of each and every one of the children.  Thank you to the parents for transporting your children to and from the event.


We look forward to seeing the year 3-5 children at future events!!

Both Discos were a great success! It was lovely to see the lights bouncing in the hall and smiles all around!

Year 5 'Stayer's'


WOW! What an end to the stayers fun! Clip and Climb was a huge success! The children pushed themselves to their limits and as for the drop slide – it was scary to watch, let alone do! After this climbing craziness, we had lunch in the sun and chilled on the luxury seats at the Vue and watched Minions – The Rise of Gru. The stayers were wonderful ambassadors for the school and we have had the best time ever! Thank you everyone.

Today, the Year 5 stayers travelled to Margate on the train and played ten pin bowling at Bugsy’s bowling. Even with a delayed train, we made it on time! We had a lot of winners across two games and three lanes! There were so many spares that the games were really close! Well done for the fabulous sportsmanship all round. Year 5 were also awarded medals (again.) Another fab day. Let’s hope we can re-energize ready for tomorrow’s Clip and Climb!

Wednesday Afternoon

On Wednesday afternoon, Year 5 stayers had the honour of a masterclass in lawn bowls at Minster bowls club. The children learned that the bowl is in fact called a wood and that they are weighted with bias. Using this knowledge, they bowled their wood in a match which has ends instead of games. Not only did they get to do this but the lovely people at the bowls club gave the children snacks and drinks and awarded each of them a medal for their participation. Thank you to the team at Minster Bowls Club for an absolutely brilliant afternoon.

Wednesday Morning

Year 5 Stayers have begun their few days of activities with fun in the sun! This Wednesday morning, the children all prepared handmade pizzas, which they tell me were very yummy! They also got to eat delicious and healthy fruit kebabs. All the children ate everything (not sure how much packed lunch or school dinners they are going to eat now) and burned off some of the calories by playing games on the rec. This afternoon, they will be having a master class in the sport of lawn bowls! This is just day one and it is already so much fun!

Sports Day


What an amazing afternoon! It was lovely to see so many of you there supporting and from what we have heard, the children had a fantastic time. A special well done to,


1st place, Normans!

2nd place - Romans 

3rd place - Vikings

4th place - Saxons

Wear it Wild

Copper Class have had a fantastic 'Wear it Wild' day, topped off by a marble jar treat to the park!

Purple Class have really thrown themselves into Wear it Wild Day in aid of WWF. We have wolves, tigers, bears and even a dingo! Well done Purple Class. What a great effort!

Minster Musical Masterpiece

Well done to the most recent football team. They showed great enthusiasm and desire to represent the school. Mr Fasham and I are looking forward to more fixtures next year!

We are very proud of some of our budding artists at Minster who had their work submitted for the Annual Rotary Art Competition. We had six nominations for a special award and two of these were winners overall of their age category.  This competition is Thanet wide so lots of other Thanet schools took part.

Well done!

Mrs Ramsden (Art and Design lead)

On 5th June, Reuben, our Norman House Captain, and Olivia, one of our Christian Ambassadors, represented the school at the Jubilee Celebration at St. Mary’s Church.

Along with Mrs Hogben, they read excerpts from the school log books starting with the year of the Queen’s Coronation up till her Silver Jubilee in 1977. A number of the audience actually attended the school then and remembered some of the events!

Well done Olivia and Reuben!

Green Class are ready to celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee today!

And so are Year 5

Y3 went orienteering this week at Ursuline.  

All of the children had fun and worked really well within their teams.  The girls team came 3rd and the boys completed the challenge in the allotted time.  Mrs Elks and Mrs Manning were very proud of them all. 

The Wilder Kent Award Club have been working hard to document all of the amazing things we do as a school to look after our local area and the wildlife that lives here. 

As part of this, we have been talking about ways to look after insects and their habitats. 

The children decided it would be a great idea to promote 'NO MOW MAY' to our local community by sharing posters to Facebook. The idea is that you don't cut your grass during the month of May to help the insects. 

The children also want to encourage you to get involved with planting wildflower seeds to feed the butterflies, bees and other pollinators (just like we have been doing at school).

A massive well done to the Year 4s, who attended Margate FC football festival yesterday. The children showed great passion, some brilliant football skills and superb sportsmanship.

Yesterday, we won the Y3/4 Rugby league tournament .  The children all played brilliantly and represented the school fantastically showing all off our school values. 

Last term we purchased 12 pairs of brand new welly boots and 30 pairs of waterproof trousers with a big help from our friends over at Decathlon, Broadstairs. The children have begun making good use of these during some gardening and forest school activities. We have a range of sizes to suit children from year 1 all the way to year 6. This will certainly help with messy and wet activities. We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to Decathlon in Broadstairs for all their help arranging this with us. There is no such thing as bad weather, and now we don't have to worry about bad clothing either. 


Our 'Love Leader' winners!!

Competition Winners!!

Romans are the House Champions for Term 4!!

Just WOW!

What an amazing effort the children have put in with their Gardens, Bonnets and Eggs.

'Some Year 2 children took part in a Thanet School Gymnastics event at Callis Grange school.

They really enjoyed being shown how to use some of the fantastic apparatus by Thanet Gymnastic Club.'

Flashback to last week! What a wonderful World Book Day we had in Indigo class. Which book characters can you see?

Year 3 loved 'World Book Day' this week!

WOW! What an evening the football team had last Tuesday! All of the children contributed to a 2-1 win in extra time against St Saviours to book a a place in the Les Riggs Final! This will be played under the flood lights at Margate FC. Definitely a game to look forward to! We are awaiting the results of the other side of the draw to see who our next opponents are. Thank you to all of the parents for your fantastic support!

Ramsgate Mascot Experience

The children had a fantastic time and were a credit to the school. They look very smart in the kit too! Thank you to the parents for supporting them.

Well done to all of the children that represented the school at the recent Year 3/4 Athletics event. It's great to hear how much fun you had and I know that you are all really proud of your medals!

It was fantastic to play at Minster on Friday afternoon in the Quarter-Finals of the Les Riggs Cup. The children came out victorious too, 4-1! Thank you to all the parents for your support! Mr Fasham and I are already looking forward to the Semi-Final!

The children have had an amazing cheerleading experience today! We hope they have lots to tell you about their time with the teachers today. Watch this space - a club could be starting soon!

What an experience for our children. Margate mascots on Saturday. Well done to all those that attended and thank you parents for your support. The children were a credit to the school. Keep your eyes peeled, there will be a Ramsgate mascot event soon!

'Here are the two worthy winners for their age categories of this year's Rotary Art Competition. Willow and Dawson collected their prizes and certificates from the Margate School. We were very pleased that Minster CE Primary was represented in this way and we are very proud of them.

Minster Football Team had another great win on Friday. They progressed through to the next round of the Les Riggs Cup with a fantastic team performance.

We had a fantastic day on the last day of term, to raise awareness and emphasise the importance of showing racism the red card! Thank you for all of your support!


This week, on Monday 18th October, Purple Class had the honour of visiting their buddy class, Blue class, to read together. It was so exciting to see and hear the Year 2 children confidently read to the Year 5 children. They talked about books, read aloud to their buddy and their buddy also read to them. Some children read a whole longer book, others read a few shorter books. All children were completely engaged in their reading and Purple class helped their buddy with their phonic and blending when they came across any tricky words. It was also a trip down memory lane for some of Purple class because they were once in Blue class when they were in Year 2. We can’t wait to spend more time with our buddy class, whether that is to read, share work or even complete some fun activities together. Thank you for having us Blue class, we loved it!

On Friday, we took part in 'One Run Global' with over 130,000 pupils from every corner of the globe - running, walking and moving side by side - together - to make history.

Super Saturday was fantastic! Minster conceded only one goal throughout the tournament, and everyone played brilliantly. The team managed to win a trophy too which will be added to our cabinet. Well done Team Minster! Thank you to all the parents that came to support!

The Minster Football Team has another successful tournament on Friday. They managed to win 4 out of their 5 games! The children were fantastic, showing great pride and passion to play! Thank you again for all of your support!

Minster Football teams have been busy attending lots of Mini Festivals this term. All of the children have shown great enthusiasm to represent the school and loved every minute. There are lots more up and coming fixtures to look forward to as well!

Recently at school, we had the chance to take part in a Virtual Speed Stacking Competition. Here are two happy Year 3 winners!


This week, year 3 have been lucky enough to have some visitors from The Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory Trust who taught them about the local birds and how to spot them. The children took part in a range of activities, including learning about migration, food chains and birdwatching! A great morning!
