Some of our Little Acorns pupils took part in a sports event with other schools last week, and were proud to wear their medals. As a small school we often find we are competing against large schools with dedicated sports staff and a large pool of children from whom they can pick their teams. Nonetheless, our children always do us proud with their behaviour and enthusiasm as well as their sporting abilities.
This term it is the turn of Little Acorns class to try out Forest School activities. We are very fortunate to have a dedicated safe space for Forest School at the top of our school field, for those children with little legs who might find it a bit tiring to walk to and from the woods. They will get their turn to try out the woods in a few weeks’ time though!
Our Little Acorns children were able to observe the development from caterpillar to butterfly this term. The butterflies were kept in the classroom very briefly before being set free.
Our Year 1 and 2 children joined in the cross country race at Spring Grove School this week. There were lots of children, so it was a great opportunity to mix with others. All of our children worked extremely hard and they all finished their race. We’re also proud to say that we won a medal: Erin in Year 2 came third in the girls’ cross country! Well done Erin and all of the children!
Key Stage One went on a school trip to Kent Life recently. They met some animals, fed some sheep, rode a tractor, learnt about where and how food grows and had lots of fun!

Our Little Acorns children have been having fun while learning in their classroom and in their outside space.
Our Key Stage 1 children had the opportunity to visit a local farm in July.
