This week, Year 6 performed two performances of Hamlet at the Kings Hall. The production was outstanding. Putting on a play of such quality and depth required very high expectations of the children and there is no question of them ALL rising to the challenge. Harry and Maddie were excellent in the leading role of Hamlet and their ability to learn and deliver so many lines is quite remarkable.
On Monday 3rd July, 8 children from Year 5 travelled to Chartham Primary School, by minibus, to take part in ICT Ambassador training with a number of other schools from the Canterbury area. The children were training for their role next year as ICT ambassador and promoting E-safety throughout the school. During the morning session the children learnt about cyberbullying and the 4 Golden Rules to help prevent it. They discussed the good and bad things about the internet as well as talking about different scenarios that could happen on line and how they would deal with them. After lunch, we worked together in our school groups to come up with an action plan for next year. The children were very enthusiastic coming up with many short term and long term goals that they want to achieve and implement next year.
After winning the East Kent Coastal Tri- Golf competition, the schools golf team were invited to represent the East Kent area at The Kent Finals held at Polo Farm, Littlebourne on Tuesday. The team played thirteen other teams from across Kent, all worthy winners of their own area.
The team had to play on 8 different golf stations using their putting and chipping skills in timed events. The final scores were then added up for each team. All the stations were manned by university students, who gave specific instructions on the different activities.
On Wednesday 21st of June, Mr Blake and Mr Ware took a cricket team to the annual Coastal Cricket Tournament, held at Chestfield Cricket Ground.The team won all of their first five matches. This was impressive as only one of our team played in a cricket team outside school and they were beating teams that were full of experienced players from Chestfield and Whitstable cricket clubs. In the end they finished a very credible fourth. St Marys won the tournament but our team had the honour of being the only team to beat them on the day, in one of our earlier matches.
The children really did us proud and were a credit to the school.
The summer fair on Friday was very successful with all the children taking part and thoroughly enjoying themselves in the (slightly cooler) sunshine. Thank you for your support. We raised almost £2,500! Thanks must also go to Mrs Easton and Mrs Edwards for all their hard work planning the event.
