K'NEX Challenge

June 2018

Classes 3 and 4 took part in a competition to build a working model of some form of medieval weapon. Technology, teamwork, creative thinking, decision making and working to deadlines were all key skills needed for this task.

 

Battering rams, siege engines, trebuchets  and catapults were designed and tested throughout the morning before a winning team was selected. This group of children will go on to represent the school in Rochester later in the year.

 

Well done to the winners and we wish them lots of luck in the finals.

What the children said:

 

'I really enjoyed working with my group to create a catapult. It was really fun and I learnt a lot about machines.'

 

'It was amazing. Time went so fast and we had to start again with only 2 minutes of time remaining. I could not have done it without the encouragement of my group.'

 

'This challenge really tested our skills.'

 

'My group made a catapult. IT WORKED!'

 

'It was exciting to see what other groups made.'

 

'We came across a few problems on the way...but we managed to solve them!'

Safety in Action - May 2018 

Year 6 pupils attended 'Safety in Action', an interactive event to help them learn about some of the dangers they may face as they become more independent and prepare for transition to secondary school.

 

Topics covered included: peer pressure, online safety, drug and alcohol awareness, basic first aid and  safety issues concerning water, railway lines, electricity and  fire.

We hope they have shared their knowledge with you.

Rewind to Easter

Year 5 children returned to Hawkhurst Baptist Church for an afternoon of Easter activities.

The begonia bulbs that they planted will act as a symbol of new life - if they remember to water them! keep indoors until May and then enjoy the blooms in summer.
