As part of creative morning, KS3 pupils have been learning about Chinese New Year. Some of their activities included mask making and storytelling, Chinese calendars, Tai Chi, Chinese writing, dance, music and dragons.
The children in Bahamas class have been working really hard this term, learning all about William Harvey, the Tudors and materials. We’ve been writing to our friends at Smeeth School, and we went to visit them with a picnic. We all agree though that our favourite day was when we all dressed up for World Book Day!
We have begun to study Andy Goldsworthy and how he creates his artwork. We have started to create some of our own interpretations of his style of working with paper leaves and flower petals. All found this to be really exciting as you will see from the pictures. We are looking forward to our next project.
Trinidad class has had lots to enjoy in Terms 3 and 4 – a dance workshop, a cricket experience and weekly swimming, plus lots of learning about the Ancient Egyptians.
Canada class has been enjoying meeting other pupils from around the new school, a big change from our class’s location in our previous setting. We had fun, especially joining in with World Book Day and experiencing the Chinese New Year parade that went around school.
Our school has a team of hard working ‘Eco Warriors’ who have been helping with recycling, litter picking and making posters.
The students had a fabulous day dressing up as their favourite characters. It gave them an opportunity to mingle with peers within the zone. It was a great opportunity to share favourite books and stories within their classes alongside their peers and adults. The staff were just as enthusiastic and dressed up to join in the fun.
It has been another busy term in Haiti class – from the panto to The Battle of Bosworth, and Chinese Dragons!
This term Dominican Republic class has been learning new ball skills and applying these when playing ball games inside and out.
This term Costa Rica made 3D shapes and Fraction Pizzas. We also competed in the Kent Panathlon swimming event at Medway Park!
