We have come to the end of another term and no real snow to speak of thank goodness, in fact there is a definite air of Spring!!!
We had a visit yesterday from Councillor Martin Potter the Portfolio holder for Education on Medway Council. The children showed him round and he was very impressed with their conduct and with the school in general. Its really good to have visitors from outside take an interest and see the school in action.
We have had some lovely work completed this week with Pirate Day in Early Years. Other year groups are also having dress up days either to inspire them for a new topic they might be studying such as “British Day” We have had a representative from Southern Water pop in to talk to Y4 as part of their water topic and Y6 are going down to Rochester Art Gallery later today to appreciate some of the art on display there. All of these activities should give the children lasting memories of primary school as well as building on their skills set.
Just a reminder from last week – we are planning our Book Week which this year will be from Monday 4th March to Friday 8th March. Our theme this year will be “Myths and Legends”. So that everyone knows well in advance we will be having a “dress up” day on 7th March when the children if they wish can come to school dressed as a legendary character, eg a dragon, a knight etc so there’s plenty of time to get making and designing!
This will be the last notice for a Parent governor here at the school, there is still some time to indicate interest but we are very grateful to the interest that we have already received which our chair of governors Mrs Greatorex is encouraging.
Have a lovely February break. School will resume as normal for term 4 on Monday 25th February.
