2019 - 2020
On Tuesday 21st January, I had the pleasure of taking a small team of Year 6 children to represent Minster School at a Badminton Tournament, held at Ursuline College.
It consisted of singles, doubles and triple games. Each child played against 5 other teams. We played 12 games in total, winning an amazing 9 out of the 12.
All the children showed excellent teamwork, commitment and desire throughout. Their behaviour, sportsmanship and attitude were exemplary throughout the entire tournament.
Well done Team Minster!!
Year 6 - Creating Filament Lightbulbs
This afternoon year 6 created their own filament lightbulbs. They investigated the effect of their completed circuit on a piece of pencil lead- just look at the results!

Thank you to all the parents and staff who were kind enough to sponsor the group from St Mary’s Church, who slept in tents in the churchyard on December 6th. With your generous support we were able to raise £1300 for the Church Urban Fund to help homeless people in the area. The shelters this money provides offer a safe bed for a night, a hot meal and a chance to wash, which is so often not available to those who are homeless. Thank you so much for helping us do this, and therefore raising awareness of this serious situation on our streets.
KS2 Spelling Bee
A massive WELL DONE to our class Spelling Stars this year and our school Spelling Champion! The children impressed us all during Friday's KS2 Spelling Bee with their quick recall of tricky spellings- who will win next year?!
Indoor Sports Day
KS2 had a great time competing during the Indoor Sports Day! Results and certificates are going to be celebrated in collective worship on Friday. It was lovely to see children encouraging others and aiming to be the 'best that they can be.'
The Reading Race!
We would like to introduce our new whole school competition- The Reading Race. This competition will promote and encourage children to be reading regularly at home and celebrate classes who are doing this consistently. At the end of each term, teachers will calculate the percentage of children in their class who are reading at home 5 times a week. The higher the percentage, the further the class will move along the track!
At the end of the year, the winning class will win £50 for their class to spend on their book corner (to go up with them to their next class). The class themselves will decide on their prize (this may be a selection of books, comfortable cushions and beanbags or even some twinkly lights!) Of course if year 6 win, something else will be put into place with the prize money.
In the school hall, we have a new display which will visually show which class is winning the race each term- keep a look out for termly updates on Facebook and the Website!
And to add to that, one of OUR children got player of the tournament - wonderful Darcy - and it was so well deserved.
Well done Team Minster!
Mrs Wish, Mrs Makowska and Miss White
Team Minster were in action again on Monday and played brilliantly. They have progressed to the next round of the Les Riggs Cup. Well done to all those involved and thank you for your support!
Today we had the great pleasure of attended Thanet schools passport Year 2 Football Festival at Margate Football.
We are extremely proud of all the children who took part with some never playing a football match.
You all showed determination, sportsmanship and represented the school with pride.
Well done Team Minster.
On a wet Saturday morning Minster football team played with high spirits in the Soccer Saturday this year at Upton. The team played extremely well and narrowly missed out on a trophy. They did not lose a game! Great sportsmanship was shown by all throughout the morning. Well done to all those that were involved but a special mention for Olly McCoy who played brilliantly after a late call on Friday. Thank you again to all the supporters that cheered us on.
