Another epic week with the May Fair, Year 5’s visit to the Kench Hill activity centre and EYFS and KS1’s visit to the church. Year 5 had a fantastic day at the Kench Hill Activity Centre in Tenterden. The sun was beating down but undeterred, clad in their long sleeves and long trousers (for safety’s sake), they merrily built shelters, learnt skills of orienteering, investigated the nature garden and created outside art.

Years R, 1 and 2 paid Headcorn’s St Peter and St Paul’s church to make up for their missed visit due to the miserable weather on their Easter bonnet parade day last term. We are so proud of their mature and beautiful behaviour, not only listening carefully in the church but also walking sensibly through the village. Well done!

The May Fair on Bank Holiday Monday was an enormous success with hours of glorious sunshine, swarms of visitors and a large hard-working team of parents, pupils, staff and friends all admirably lead by our fantastic, super-efficient and enthusiastic PTFA! We raised a whopping £7120.13! which is financing our developing outdoor learning opportunities across site.

Watch this space for how we begin to spend this so that our children can be enjoying the benefits of all of your hard work and support even before this term is out!

A big thank you to everyone who gave hours of their time both in the run up and on the big day. The winning House Team for the most hours volunteered is Stevenson House and the winning Class Team was Year 3! Stevenson House (The Blues) will be enjoying a non-uniform day and ice lollies very soon. The winning class will reap the rewards in the form of an afternoon of creative learning; the options to choose from will be discussed with them.
