Forensic Science Workshop

On Monday 19 March 2018 the children in years 1 to 6 will enjoy a Forensic Science Workshop.  This engages our children with scientific techniques that shows them how Science works in the real world.  Forensic Science Workshops identify and analyse clues and evidence to solve the crime.  This exciting workshop takes place in school hours and the children will come into school in their school uniform. Thank you for your continued support.

Book Fair

For your information we will be running our usual book fair in collaboration with Scholastic Book Club.  The fair will run from Monday 19 March to Thursday 22 March and will open from 08.30am – 9.00am.  Prices start from only £2.99 and every book sold at our fair helps us to get free books for our children in school.  If you purchase a book you will automatically be entered into a prize draw.  It will be drawn on Thursday 22 March in the afternoon.  Please come along and have a browse; this is a great opportunity to buy gifts for Easter.  Children will be bringing home a leaflet today with £2 off coupons for certain books. Thank you for your continued support.

Pupil Voice

Today Kent and Fire Rescue Service visited the school.  The pupils were asked if they enjoyed the visit and what they have learnt.

Maisie said, ‘I learnt to be safe.  I enjoyed the visit from the Fireman.  He talked about fire and what to do if it is on your clothes, you drop and roll.’

Leylian said, ‘We learnt about 999 and to say ‘fire, fire’.  I really had fun listening to the Fireman.  You can also call the Police or Doctors or Fireman or Police Boats using the number 999.’

Lewis said, ‘We learnt about stuff like if you are on fire you need to drop and roll.  When there is a fire, check the door for heat to feel if there is a fire the other side of the door.  I enjoyed the talk because it was fun and interesting and because it will keep me safe.’

Marcel said, ‘The smoke alarms are not just to tell you that there is a fire, they will help you to escape too.  When there is smoke in your house, it is best to crawl along the floor.  If you don’t you could get ill from the smoke.  I enjoyed the visit because it was interesting and will help to keep me safe.’
