Year 4 enjoyed a year group rounders match yesterday morning.

Year 4 and Year 1 loved performing their poems to each other on the Grandstand today! They were read with such confidence. Well done to all of the children, we as teachers are very proud of them!

It's exciting times! Sports Day is nearly upon us! Year 4 practised their running races today.

Year 4 have been looking at art by Idris Khan and Corey Barksdale. Using music as an inspiration, they combined both of the ideas from the artists to create their own designs. All of the children are proud of what they have achieved!

Copper Class have had a fantastic day from quizzes and composing their own music to learning to play the Cello! We have certainly got lots of musical talent at our school!

Year 4 have enjoyed their recent DT project!

Copper Class completed their Hinduism topic by making and designing Diva Lamps, using light to symbolise worship and dispel darkness.

Copper Class spotting angles in our outside environment. Are they acute, a right angle or obtuse? I wonder if they spotted any at home...

We had a lovely afternoon yesterday getting the planters ready in the forest school area. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the team work skills on show were excellent! We hope to see elderflowers growing in Term 6.

We had a great time at Kent Life and the trip summarised our learning perfectly! Just look at the smiles on the children's faces! Some of the children might even share the 9 Men's Morris game with you that we were introduced to.
