On Thursday, we had a visit from the author, Abi Elphinstone. The children enjoyed listening about how Abi travels the world looking for her next story, and about her various adventures on different continents. After listening to her, many of the children said that they were feeling inspired to write their own stories!
At the end of the day, Abi was available to answer the children’s questions and was selling signed copied of her first two books, The Dream Snatcher and The Shadow Keeper, both of which are available at Bundles of Books in Herne Bay, should your child wish to buy one.
After winning the East Kent Coastal key steps gymnastics competition back in February, our Year 5 & 6 gymnastics team represented the East Kent area at Pegasus gym in Maidstone on Tuesday. Our team Jack, Eva, Matilda and Anna were 4 of 373 children competing at the event from all over Kent.
After winning the East Kent Coastal golf competition the schools golf team were invited to represent the East Kent area at The Kent Finals held at The Julie Rose Stadium Ashford on Thursday. The team played fifteen other teams from all over Kent, all winners of their own area.
On Thursday we held our first Race for Life event. What a spectacle seeing all 470 children running/walking/jogging together and then either enjoying the football or spending time outside playing!
We were delighted as a school that Harry Cordeaux and Chloe Kendall were selected as finalists for the Perfect Packed Lunch competition which was run by The Turner Contemporary. They were invited along to the awards ceremony on Friday and were presented with certificates and prizes. Mrs Rogers went along as a school representative as did family members to cheer them on.
They both designed a packed lunch for Tim Peake which linked to their topic this term which is Space. Congratulations to both of you.
