Dear Parents and Carers

I can’t believe it’s already the end of our first half term – it seems to have flown by!

Thank you for all the parents/carers who visited their children’s Topic Landings this week – the children do love to show off their class and work. It was great to see so many of you and I’m sure you will agree that the children have produced some lovely work. I particularly enjoyed seeing Year 4’s lighthouses! Thanks also to the families who attended our ‘Stay and Play’ in Early Years today.

Last Friday we had our very first Race for Life and I am delighted to announce that collectively the children raised over £1800!

This week Year 5 have been preparing for their Shakespeare production and attended a workshop on Monday. This was great as inspiration in helping their rehearsals and they thoroughly enjoyed the session. Maybe you could ask them to share what they learned from their trip, and don’t forget that tickets are on sale for their performance at the Theatre Royal in Margate. Today was the second week of the Plastics Workshop for our year 4 students at Dreamland, a great opportunity to learn about the effects of litter on our environment. Eco-council members were out in force picking up litter today and Year 4 also gave a presentation in assembly to-day, reminding us all to ‘recycle, reduce, re-use’.

If you have time over half term, there are several family events at the Turner Contemporary Gallery. This Sunday, for example, is a family workshop from 1.00-4.00pm which is free for CT9 residents – just take along proof of address.

We come back from half term on Monday 29th October; I look forward to seeing you all then. Have a lovely break.

Best wishes,

Miss Williams

Head Teacher
