The children had the opportunity to try traditional printing methods using blocks and ink. They also enjoyed making the most of the good weather exploring the grounds around the museum.

  • Year 1 - RE Hanukkah

    Published 25/06/24

    In Year 1, the children have been learning all about the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. Hanukkah is the celebration of Light. It is the celebration of a miracle that happened a long time ago.  It is a celebration of rededication of the Temple after it was destroyed. Hanukkah lasts for 8 days and 8 nights. Each night, families gather to light the menorah, eat special foods, sing songs, play Dreidel and, in some families, to exchange gifts. On Hanukkah, fried foods are always on the menu. The oil that the foods are fried in is a reminder of the oil in the temple that lasted 8 days instead of just 1 day.  Two popular dishes are latkes  (potato pancakes) and sufganiot (doughnuts). Today the children had a go at making latkes and eating doughnuts.  We have also made dreidels and played Dreidel using mini marshmallows.

  • Drama Year 4

    Published 01/05/24

    In this weeks' chapter of The Explorer the children built a raft to give themselves the chance to get from the rainforest to Manaus to alert people to their plight. So in drama the children paired up to have a go at building their own raft using only natural resources they could find in the nature trail and some string. The results were amazing! With clever problem solving and some trial and error - they came up with some really good designs. Then they had to add small rocks to represent themselves on the raft and see if it would float! Some

    Of the designs worked exceptionally well as they were wide, strong and had enough protection. Others may have ended up in the water with their rafts! It's a good thing we only trialled the miniature versions!

  • Year 4 Science- Burps, Bottoms and Bile!

    Published 29/04/24

    As part of our Burps, Bottoms and Bile unit we are learning about the digestive system. We started by looking at our teeth.  We have been investigating how different drinks affect our teeth.  We put some eggs (the shell of an egg is similar to the enamel on our teeth) in to coffee, vinegar, cola, covered in toothpaste in cola and water.  It was very exciting looking at the results

  • Year 4 - Drama

    Published 29/04/24

    In drama this week we took our acting outside! We have been reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell, which is about a small group of children who find themselves alone in the Amazon rainforest with no adults. As a way of being able to empathise with the characters and the problems they face we took our lesson outdoors. They children had to choose the team they wanted to be stranded with and to build a shelter that would protect them from the elements and wild animals. Mrs Price and I were so impressed with the results - not only were their problem solving skills really good, but also their ability to work as a team and divide roles and responsibilities. Each group had brilliant  ideas -  they'd thought about how to clean the water so it was drinkable, how they were going to keep warm and cook food, exits from their den in case of attack and how they were going to manage the toilet! It was a brilliant afternoon with such careful thought and attention to detail. It really helped them to access the feelings of the characters in the story and to understand how problematic having no grown ups to help and guide them, might be .

  • At the farm

    Published 12/03/24

    This year, Class 1 and 2 have linked with Densholme Farm in West Yorkshire.  This will enrich their understanding of seasons, life on a farm and link their curriculum in a meaningful way.  By Zooming on a regular basis, the children, so far, have enjoyed listening to Farmer Dennis.  He has shared the history of his farm, current jobs he is working on and often taking the children on a virtual tour around his grounds.  The children especially love to see the goats, chickens, pigs and tractors.  Just before our last week’s Zoom call was ending, Farmer Dennis asked if the children would like to see his ‘two new additions?’  Children were bewildered but cheered, ‘Yes!’  He revealed two beautiful, black 3 day old lambs and said Ramsgate Holy Trinity can name them.  Names will be confirmed later this week!
