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.
Today we learnt about how the Great Pyramid was made. The children imagined that they were news reporters, talking about the completion of Pharaoh Khufu's pyramid.
Here is a small selection of the videos they made.
As part of our Easter Service, Year 6 created their own version of Palm Sunday.
On Wednesday Year 6 had an amazing school trip to London. After a great train and tube ride, we visited the V & A to go round the China Gallery and a special exhibition called: Videogames; design, create, disrupt.
We then had an incredible lunch in Chinatown.
Having listened to Emily's amazing Chinese tales yesterday and then the children storyboarding what they could remember during the afternoon, today we re-told them.
Year 6 worked in small groups, using Adobe Flash to upload photos, illustration and narrative to retell the stories of The Parasol, The Donkey Inn and Qinshihuang's Elixir of Life.
The first 4 completed videos are below - more to follow
