Pupil Voice
Jemima was asked if she enjoyed learning about her project and what she had learnt.  This is what she said….
Jemima said, “Our project this term is Magnets and Forces.  I found out that there is a south and a north on a magnet.  The blue end is the north and the red end is the south.  If you try to put a red end and a red end together or a blue end and a blue end together they repel which means they push away from each other.
Our experiment was to find out which materials magnets would pick up.  There were different materials hidden in sand and I had to use a magnet to pick the materials up.  Miss Sandham thought that the magnet would pick all the materials up but Miss McMurray thought that the magnet would only pick the metal up.  Miss McMurray was correct.
I have learnt that a force is when a parachute opens in the sky, it slows the fall down because the air is a resistance.  Another force is when you drive your car along a flat road it will travel more quickly than a car that is travelling along a bumpy road.
I really enjoy our projects.”
 
‘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:
Curtis
Louie-Jay
Codie
Luke

Artificial flowers

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.
