The children all went on a Christmas Train ride from Eythorne to the North Pole (AKA Shepherdswell). Along the way we got to listen to Music and see Father Christmas and his snowman friend. We even came back with a gift each!View album
Monday 9th – Friday 13th November 2020
Maths Week England.
We started the week by dressing up as RockStars, Robots and Numbers to celebrate the launch of our online games TTRockStars and Numbots. Thank you to all the parents and carers who helped make us look so amazing.
We then had a fantastic week of maths activities. On Monday classes battled it out to see who would become timetables champions for their class and winning children took certificates home – don’t forget there is another chance to be a timetables rockstar at the end of this term – keep practising!
On Tuesday each class was read a story by their class teacher. This story then paved the way for all sorts of amazing maths activities – we went on an animal hunt in Discovery, Voyager went shopping, Atlantis had cookies to share while Columbia had one too many beans. And Endeavour imagined the world was a village with the help of a few statistics.
Wednesday saw us all packing up for an imaginary holiday in the sun as we investigated how many outfits we could make with different numbers of shorts and t-shirts.
Finally, at the end of the week we combined maths, computing and art to work with tessellating shapes.
Some of the children came to school on Remembrance Day wearing their Rainbows, Cubs, Scouts, Guides uniforms. Here are just a couple of our older children from Years 5 and 6. The whole school held a two minute silence at 11am.View album
Last week, we enjoyed showing new families around our school who are thinking about sending their children here in September next year.View album
Children at school decorated pebbles to mark Remembrance Day. These have now been put in place in the Memorial Garden in Eythorne.View album
On the last day of term the children at school had a couple of lovely surprises. First some of us went down to Woodpecker Court to feed and cuddle the animals. After lunch we had a surprise visit from the ice cream van – and Ms Silverton and the PTA treated us all to an ice cream! Delicious.View album
Voyager Class continue to work hard at home, sending me lovely messages and wowing me with their skills. Here are a selection of recent photos…..View album
Another AMAZING week of learning from the children in Discovery. This week, the children have been busy becoming 3D shape detectives, investigating which 3D shapes would roll or slide down a ramp and becoming super amazing researchers to create minibeast fact files. Look at all this wonderful learning!View album
