In Earth Class (Year 5 and 6) we are taught by Mrs Austin, Mrs Simpson, Mrs Hunt and Mrs Asher.
We have lots of responsibilities in school because we are the oldest children. We set up the focal area for Collective Worship, distribute fruit each morning, arrange the benches/chairs and read the celebration list in Friday's assembly. Members of our class are elected as school prefects, house captains and learning mentors.
Earth and Air class had the opportunity to take part in two exciting workshops at the Marlowe Kit in Canterbury as part of our Arts Mark award. The children took part in a 'Slap-stick' drama workshop as well as making incredible masks. They also had a tour of the exhibition to learn about the life of Christopher Marlowe and were able to dress up in costumes and write using quills.
We have a busy term ahead with lots of fun learning as well as many exciting events taking place.
Healthy Eating Jamboree
Year 6 were invited by Tilmanstone salad's to take part in a 'Healthy' eating Jamboree. The children had the opportunity to make their own food, such as salads, smoothies and desserts whilst at the same time trying new and healthy fruit and vegetables.
Year 6 were invited to participate in a range of exciting activities in preparation for the Harvest Mass at St Edmund's Catholic Primary School.
The children were able to join in with the singing and learn parts of the liturgical mass through sign language and actions. They also had great fun decoration their own biscuits which were given as part of the offertory, as well as eating them as a reward later on.
