Shoe box Appeal
137 shoebox gifts have been donated to Samaritans’s Operation Christmas Child Appeal this year! Thank you to all who have kindly donated gifts towards this appeal.
This week we have been showing our respects to the fallen heroes of war, particularly focusing on the end of WW1, as we are in the centenary year.
Across both KS1 and KS2 the children have made poppies in their own personal style to reflect each of the individuals who died in order to preserve our way of life.
Our display in the entrance foyer is a culmination of all of the children’s hard work and we are extremely proud to display their beautiful works of art.
Another year of outstanding generosity from all our parents for our Harvest Festival. Thank you so much for all your contributions. All donations will be given to the Gravesham Foodbank next week.
As we head further into Phase 2 building works, we have had to adapt our current building to meet the needs of the children. This summer, it was the turn of our central library, which we have relocated into each year groups’ shared areas.
To enable children to immerse themselves in their books and imaginations, we decided to create themed spaces. Over the summer, teachers have developed their theme and have been creating space ships; jungles and jellyfish amongst other things: to excite, engage and immerse the children in their library.
The idea is to give all the children opportunity to add their ideas and creativity to these spaces, giving them pride and ownership of their year group libraries. Over the next few days and weeks, the children will be involved in projects to develop their area, creating various pieces- from moon rocks and jungle flowers to marvellous medicines and floating candles.
We hope you will support the children in encouraging their ideas, stimulating their imaginations and congratulating them on their fantastic pieces of work.
Attached are images of what the children saw when they arrived at school this morning…
