Amazing Puppetry Workshops and Curriculum Displays

Submitted by headteacher on Sunday, October 13, 2019 - 23:25

All week, one of our many amazingly talented parents, Emily McKay has been running a series of workshops with children in Years 1, 2, 4 and 6.  With old tights, socks, foam galore, the children had a huge amount of fun creating puppetry masterpieces, learning lots of new DT skills along the way.  Have a look at some of the photos.  

The staff and pupils have also created some wonderful wider curriculum displays around school.

 

Harvest Festival 2019

The whole school enjoyed a wonderful celebration of the Harvest in St Mary's Church this afternoon.  A big well done to all classes for their brilliant array of 'performances' that showed harvest in many different ways; reading, acting,dancing, singing, video-making - we had everything!  A huge thank you to all families that donated food; This year the gifts will be divided between our own Community Cupboard and the Nourish Foodbank in Tunbridge Wells.

Finally a big well done to Year 6 for leading the service so well.

We've been doing some different art projects this week, including using chalks to shade and using our sketchbooks to record observations. We've created some lovely pieces of art which are now in display in the classroom. 

 

Here's a quick collage of what we've been doing

 

Our Amazing School

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 23:28
Wow! What another very busy and successful school year we have had and last Friday was a shining example of the day in the life of our wonderful school. It started at about 6.30am with parents and staff together setting up for sportsday! Mr & Mrs Stanford even arrived with bacon sandwiches which were appreciated very much. Indeed it was a fabulous morning enjoyed by everyone. Well done to all the children but particularly those in Scotney who won both the KS1 and KS2 sports cup. Thank you to Mrs Mileham for organising the event, which as ever ran very smoothly. Thank you to the PTFA for providing refreshments and of course to you the parents, families and friends for all your support.

Following a picnic lunch, the school then opened its' classroom doors and parents were warmly invited to experience an afternoon in the life of Goudhurst & Kilndown pupil. There was a real buzz throughout the school and lots of parents commented on how it had been a wonderful day, just perfect!

Highlights from Bugsy Malone

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 23:11

Wow what an amazing show! This years production was very complex, very adventurous but it was executed brilliantly! It was hilariously funny and a spectacularly professional performance.  

For 2 nights this week, Year 6 and the rest of KS2 astounded us with their 'West End Stage' quality end of year performance, (Highlights of) Bugsy Malone.  The acting, singing, dancing and costumes were simply stunning - a true ensemble performance and a truly fitting end to Year 6s time at the school.  As Mr Goodman said about his class "The children epitomised 'Being Brave and Bold."  He would also like to thank the following people:

Sean & Robin - Directors extraordinaire.

Shereen & Greg - Incredible costumes, stage direction and sound.

Mrs Mileham & Mrs Plewes - Choreography Felix Goodman

Lighting Guy and Lucy Thompson - Filming & film editing

Mrs Wyatt, Mrs Omer & Miss Wilkins & their Teaching Assistants - singing/dance practice with their classes.

Stuart Murray - creating a cut out of Dandy Dan

Mr Alex Bolton - Bethany Head of Drama for assisting us in the initial Auditions

Most of all though, the children in Year 6 and Years 3, 4 and 5.

The refreshments and retiring collections across both nights raised an amazing total £1,138.90; £380 to the school, Weald Family Hub and Help for Heroes.

The Whole School Art Project

Submitted by headteacher on Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - 11:11

We are very proud of our most recent artistic creation in the school. You might have noticed some empty shelves that used to have speakers on them in our school hall. They were crying out for a whole school art project that would represent the sense of community and the bond we have with the church. We now have a decorated wooden cut out of the school on the left hand side and both Goudhurst and Kilndown church on the right hand side. All the children in our school painted a wooden cut out of a person and decorated a small wooden 3D person and they are now adorning the wall of the hall. It has been wonderful seeing the children looking for their own art work and enjoying the results of their creative work. We hope you will pop in and have a look whenever you are next in school. Thank you to Mrs Benson for leading this exciting project.

 

Congratulations on Arts Award Achievement!

Submitted by headteacher on Sunday, June 2, 2019 - 20:48

Since September, ten Year 5 students have been working incredibly hard to obtain their Arts Award Explore Certificate. From performing in the production of Twelfth Night, exploring a number of artists and creating their own artistic masterpiece to developing their creative writing and designing their own dragon, all children developed their work within the arts. We are delighted to announce that, after a very successful moderation, all children have obtained their Arts Award Explore! We are very proud of you all. Well done to everyone involved!
