Police Visit

We had Miriam Cousins from Maidstone Police Station visit us. She showed us the different parts of her uniform and let us try it on. She also told us about her job and said she would come back and see us again soon. We are all very excited about seeing her again!

Magic Potions

Sparrow class invited their parents in to share their magical learning. There were different tricks to try including making bubbling potions, rainbow patterns with Skittles and watching what happens when milk and washing up liquid mix together. We had lots of fun, even though it was quite messy.

Yoga Lessons in P.E.

This term, Sparrows class have been learning how to do Yoga in their P.E. lessons. They have all been doing amazing work and you can even see some of the positions they have managed to complete.

Visit from Marli the Magician

Sparrow Class had an exciting visitor to start our magic topic. Marli the magician came to show us some magic tricks, teach us some magic words and tell us about how magic began. We had so much fun!

Art – Julie Mehretu

In art, we have been learning about the artist Julie Mehretu, and we have even been painting in the same style as she does. You can see some of work below!

Visit from a Local Author

On Tuesday 26th September, we were lucky enough to receive a visit from a local author named Richard Dodd. He came into the school and spoke to all of us!

Gerald the Giraffe

On Thursday 21st September, Robins and Sparrows had a special visitor. Gerald the Giraffe came to see the children and read his two favourite books. We listened to Room on the Broom and the Gruffalo. After that, we chose the part of the story we liked best and created a freeze frame of the scene. We even told our own stories to our friends.

We really enjoyed having Gerald in our school. We hope he can visit again soon.
