Another short working week after the long Bank Holiday weekend.
Tuesday two exciting events.
Year 5 had a visit from the Astrodome as part of their Space project. They spent the morning finding out about the planets and stars.
Whilst outside our Double Decker bus arrived!
The plan once it's renovated, is to turn it into an exciting playground feature. It will be there at playtimes for those children wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of the playground and relax quietly with friends, read a book or play a game. It will also provide additional fun space for children to have their packed lunches. We also think it might provide somewhere quiet in the mornings and after school for parents to catch with our soon to arrive Family & Pupil Support Worker and could even host an After-School Reading club.
It was wonderful to see the reaction of our school community. So many parents and grandparents as excited as the children when they saw it in the playground. It was also great to receive so many generous offers of help and supportive comments about the project. Mid-Kent College have very generously offered to help us renovate it using their apprentices programme, overseen by their lecturers to ensure its done properly and in-line with all Health & Safety guidelines. It will of cause be securely fenced off while the work is carried out.
It was also good to see so many parents attend our Year 2 & 6 SATs Meetings and taking such an interest in the National tests their children will take later this year.
Wednesday was spend showing potential staff around the school and meeting Year 5 parents to discuss their children's Secondary options.
On Thursday staff gave Mrs Angus and Mrs May a farewell lunch to say 'Thank You' for all their efforts and wish them good luck for the future.
Friday? Well Friday was April Fool's Day but absolutely nothing unusual happened in the school......unless you count the odd prank...??
Enjoy your holidays everyone, I'm off to put up my daughter's new bed.....and relax.
