                         frown Our Christmas Partyfrown

 

We all had a wonderful time during our party on Tuesday. We all got changed into our party clothes and looked very smart. We then headed into the hall for dance. We had lots of fun and showed off some very impressive moves!

We then had our Christmas crackers and delicious food whilst listening to Christmas songs.

 

 

 

                                Our Trip to Rochester Castle

 

We all headed off to Rochester, as we came over the bridge we heard shouts of 'I can see the castle!' When we arrived Blake class headed into the castle first. We went up the very steep staircase and into the chapel and saw the model of the castle as it would have been during the time of the Normans. We thought about life as a Norman and how it would be to live within the castle. After exploring the castle we headed outside and began sketching the castle. We discussed the different parts of the castle and thought about what defensive purposes they had. We then headed into the cathedral. We learnt that the Cathedral was built by a Norman monk named Gundulf and we saw his statue within the Cathedral. 

 

A huge thank you to all our adult helpers !smiley

                                    Enterprise Week

 

For Enterprise week we were tasked with creating an exciting book area and promoting reading within the school. The children began with researching reading within the school and asking all classes what they like about reading and what could make reading even more exciting. They then designed, in teams, a new reading scheme. This included ideas for prizes for amount of books read. The children also created a theme for the school library and designed a new version of the library
