Year 5 on a Tudor walk through Canterbury

Year 5 took part in a Tudor walk on the first day back at school for the introduction into their new topic on Tudor England. They undertook an activity sheet whilst walking through Canterbury looking at Tudor buildings and even stopped to sketch a Tudor building. What a wonderful learning experience.

School Council raising awareness of homelessness with a sponsored sleep over

Porchlight aThe school council meet regularly and discuss ideas on how to help the school and the local community. After a recent spell of particularly cold weather they decided to raise money for Porchlight, a charity that helps homeless people in the Canterbury area. 80 children will be taking part in a sponsored sleepover, either outside in our Forest School or in the school hall.

Nathan from Porchlight came and delivered a whole school assembly. He explained the work they do and gave examples of great success stories. The children are very excited and are hoping to raise as much money as possible for this very worthy cause. As well as the sleepover there will be a cake sale and a non-uniform day to raise additional funds on 25th May.

Donations can be made through the school or directly via our Virgin Money Giving page.

Year 3's visit the Roman museum in Canterbury

DSC 0136Year 3 had a fantastic time learning all about how the Romans lived. They investigated various artefacts found by archaeologists in Canterbury such as brooches, a whetstone and an oil lamp. The children got ‘hands on’ at the Roman museum where they made flour using a quern-stone, turned their hands to being minters, made their very own Roman coins with the Emperor’s head on, and even had a go at besieging an enemy hill fort using their catapults.

Showcasing our music and dance

Gulbenkian Mar18bOn Tuesday 20th March 135 of our Junior School children performed in our annual music and dance showcase at the Gulbenkian Theatre. They were accompanied by some very talented children from the Infants School too! The evening was a celebration of all the fantastic work the children have put into their performing arts groups this term and was a huge success enjoyed by all.

Congratulations to all the children who performed, we think you are all superstars!
