Coastal Cricket Tournament

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.

The minibus trip was incredibly interesting as Mr Kingman pointed out deer, bat bridges and lots of farming and agricultural land features in Suffolk and Norfolk. He knew the area extremely well.
