Our links with the Gulbenkian theatre are developing and strengthening. On Monday 15th February thirty Year 5 children took part in a Dance Workshop.The ART(Y)31 project is hoping to enable young people to challenge ideas and ignite change in the arts.The first phase of the programme is to consult children (and parents where possible) about what arts and creativity mean to them and the changes they would like to see to enable more children and young people to access high quality arts activity across Kent. We hope that children from our school will be inspired to participate, and that they'll be able to make changes within Kent for their peers with regards to the availability of the Arts for young people.
This week every child in the school received a talk from The Breck Foundation on internet safety. We were very lucky to have Lorin LaFave, the founder of the charity talking first-hand about how internet safety has impacted her family and what the children need to do to stay safe online. Her powerful message was perfectly delivered and certainly gave the children and staff a lot to think about.
Today, Year 4 had the opportunity to showcase their final projects for the topic 'Wonders of the World'. The children have taken the time to create some fantastic work demonstrating their learning of a selection of the Wonders of the World, whether that be the Pyramids of Giza in Egypt or the Great Wall of China.
Year Three was buzzing with excitement on Thursday afternoon. The Life in the Freezer topic was coming to an end with a celebratory exhibition of the children's projects they created at home! Full to bursting, the classrooms were only just large enough to hold the wonderful work. Standing next to towering penguins, displays of the sea world, geographical models and powerpoint projects on the classroom screen, the children proudly discussed their projects.
This week, Year 5 had their exhibitions for the Tudor projects they had been working on. They invited parents/carers of the children to come and explore the cruel Tudor world that they had learnt all about.
