Well done, Kirpa!

We would like to recognise Kirpa in year 3 for a special award she received from the Mayor for her achievement in the summer reading challenge set by Bexley libraries in the summer holiday. Kirpa was awarded a special recognition award for the amount of books she read over the summer and the commitment she made to improve her reading. This is fantastic news and we look forward to hearing all about the wonderful books you have read. Maybe you can recommend some to your friends.

Woodville Halls Celebration event

40 children attended the third annual musical celebration event at Woodville Halls in Gravesend. All 6 Primary First Trust schools took part in the extravaganza. Our children did us proud and they sang their hearts out in the collaborative songs and their individual piece. The theme of the event was ‘Unity in Diversity’ and the event certainly took on this theme whole-heartedly – all different but totally united.

A special mention to Freddie Heller in Reception who won the postcard competition from across the Trust in the Early Years category.

Exploring the new learning environment

This week, we have been exploring the new outside learning environment in Nursery. We took a visit there earlier this week to find out about the new learning area and how it has created better learning opportunities for our Nursery children. Whilst looking around the area, we noticed a new nature area – for digging, growing and looking for bugs. A construction area was also being developed to engage the children. Miss Bennett (EYFS Leader) told us that since the outside area has re-opened, it has helped to improve the children’s social and communication skills as well as raise engagement (particularly with the boys)! We are sure that the Nursery children will love this new area and continue to benefit greatly from these changes. Take a look at our pictures below!
