Reception’s Trip to Kent Life

21/06/19

Both Reception classes, Red and Green, went on a school trip to Kent Life on Tuesday 18th June. Firstly, we all went onto the coach and we sang ‘Old MacDonald had a Farm’ and ‘The Wheels on the Bus’ on our way to Kent Life. We were all very excited for our school trip!

Each group took it in turns to have a workshop where we learnt loads of interesting facts about pigs, rabbits, goats, sheep, chickens and horses. We were very lucky to feed the chickens and goats. Some children even had the chance to bottle feed the goats!

Inside Cuddle Corner, we were able to have a guinea pig on our laps. We were very careful to be gentle and quiet as we didn't want to scare the animals. There was also a giant rabbit, tortoises and a chicken! 

We had a brilliant day! The children enjoyed the exciting land train and had lots of fun on the play equipment. Well done Red and Green Classes for your amazing behaviour on your school trip!

Film Makers’ Project – The Silent Mystery

12/06/19

Last term, the Film Makers’ project was a black and white silent film entitled ‘The Silent Mystery’. Before filming (post production) the members of the club watched ‘A Trip to the Moon’ directed by Georges Méliès and other clips of vintage black and white silent films.

Inspired, the children came up with their own script, with characters such as Eris (the Villain), Mr Peanut (the Minion) and Jessica (the Heroin). The children took it turn to be the clapper loader, camera operative and director. They also acted in their short film.

After editing, the children were able to premiere their film to their peers in two assemblies. If you would like to see their amazing film please click here.

Filmmakers club is run every Thursday 3.15 to 4.30 by Cheeky George productions. Spaces are available for years 3, 4, 5 and 6. Please enquire at the school office for details.
