Pupil Voice
On Tuesday the school had a visit from the Night Owls Team.  Pupils took part in a Bird of Prey demonstration and talk.  Pupils were asked what they thought about the display and this is what they said….
Billy said, “It was really good because we got to get owls to fly across the school hall and we got them to stand on our shoulders.  There were different types of owls for us to look at and learn about.  I learnt that they fly really low to the ground to save energy.  I really enjoyed it.”
Taylor said, “It was good fun.  I enjoyed seeing how long the owl’s wings are and when they flew over us.  I learnt that owls can hear a rats heart beat from 3 meters away.”
Emelia said, “I really enjoyed holding the owl.  My favourite owl was called Whisper, he was a white barn owl.  Owls fly really low to the ground so they don’t run out of energy and so they can catch their prey.”
Poppy said, “One owl was white like snow and one looked scary.  It was fun having the owls in school.  Owls live in trees and howl like wolves.”
Millie-Joy said, “The owls were fluffy and cute.  It was really fun and I enjoyed it.  I learnt that owls have very good hearing.”
Poppy said, “I liked the baby owl, he was black/grey in colour.  I liked it when the owls were flying.  I learnt that their eyes light up in the dark and that they fly low to the ground.”

‘I am valued’
As a result of Pupil Panels ideas, this year we will be awarding one child from each class an ‘I am valued’ trophy to place on their desk for one week.  Other members of the class are asked to write something positive about the child selected.  Over the course of the year every child will receive the trophy.
Children receiving the trophy this week are:
Lunchtime Clubs
Monday - Lego Club with Mrs Kent
Tuesday - Homework Club with Miss Sandham
Friday - Choir Club with Mrs Coade
Everyday - IPad Club with Mrs Manton
Wellington Boots
Please can you ensure that all children have a pair of wellington boots in school with them.  This year every class will attend the Woodland Area for a weekly planned lesson and it can be muddy depending on the weather.
Arts and Crafts
Miss Sedgwick runs an Art and Crafts club that children can attend every Friday during Golden Time.  In order to make the club a great success Miss Sedgwick needs a constant supply of craft items such as:
Paper plates
Lace trimmings
Artificial flowers
Donations of the above would be appreciated.
Play and Stay
Mrs Manton will be running a play and stay group every Wednesday morning from 9am until 10.30am.  Refreshments will be sold for a small contribution. 
School Lockers
Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.
School Uniform
Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.
Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.
Free School Meals
If you have access to the internet and would like to apply online for Free School Meals, please use the following website:
PE Kits
Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.
Late arrival at school
When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
School Lunch Payments
If you pay for your child's school dinner online you can use the link below and follow the link for Kent Schools Pay Online.
