Giraffs have been cooking 2,000 year old honey cakes today. They did say they enjoyed them!
Thank you An, Mrs Benson and YR2 for creating a wonderful mosaic for the defibrillator phone box. On Saturday some of the pupils and Mrs Benson attended the official opening ceremony in the village and were treated to free awareness training.
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!
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.
Today, Year 3 had a great afternoon making Fruit juice!
We started off by building on our knowledge of seasonal fruits, and learnt about what kinds of fruits are native to Britain, rather than those that are imported from other countries. We researched, and found out why different foods are healthy for us. Based on this, we picked three ingredients to add to our fruit juice.
We 'mashed' our fruit, just like stone age people would have done, with a pestle and mortar, potato mashers, meat mallet and rolling pins - some equipment is more authentically Stone Age than others! Some of us added honey, as we found out that Stone Age people would go to great lengths to get honey from hives.
To make it in to fruit juice, we then added a little water or cranberry juice.
We had a wonderful time and the children thought that their creations were delicious - or as Max put it - 'paradise!'
Year 6 had a great couple of sessions designing a blue print on paper and then sculpting in clay their own Terracotta Warriors as part of
Project China. Don‘t they look amazing!
