Pupil Voice
The school had an Affinity Water Workshop on Thursday where the children all took part in experiments.  A couple of pupils in Class 5 were asked what experiment they had taken part in, what they had learnt from it and if they had enjoyed it and this is what they said….
Ryan said, “We worked in a team of 4, we had to make a map, connect small pipes to long pipes and tubs to get the water to all of the places on the map.  We had to work out where to put the pipes so everywhere got water.  Once all the pipes were connected we poured water in to see if it had worked.  I leant that it is illegal for water companies not to send water to places such as hospitals or houses.  I really enjoyed working with the lady from Affinity Water and working on the experiment.”
Lacey said, “After we had finished our experiments we were asked to clear away sensibly, our team were the first to pour our water away into a bucket so we won dojo points.  I learnt that if there was a water leak from a pipe and the water company needed to shut the water off to repair the pipe, they would have to supply people with water to drink.  It would be illegal to shut the water off without providing people with drinking water.  I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed the workshop.”
 
‘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:
Maizie
Billy
Toby
Riley
Aliesha

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: http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/schools/free-school-meals.
 
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.
