What is the geography of our local village?
Year 6 took some time out of the classroom to explore the geographical features of Bapchild Village. The pupils headed out to find different physical and man-made features and to generate questions about the area.
From Fizz Pop rockets, to electing House Captains, to releasing butterflies, to farm school and revising hard for PESE. The beginning of term has been a busy but wonderful start for our lovely Year 6 pupils.
Please find below some wonderful pictures of our Bushcraft day which was an extra special event! We had an exciting day of: building shelters, making water filters and lighting fires. Not quite ready to go on The Island with Bear Grylls - but not far off!

Year 5 Class Worship
On 22nd November, Year 5 shared our class worship with the rest of the school and our parents and carers. We decided to focus on growth mindset and our learning around it. We have looked at how having a growth mindset can positively impact on our learning and make us more resilient! By changing how we speak about our difficulties can change the result. Instead of saying 'I can't do it', try saying 'I can't do it yet'.
Our Trip to Horton Kirby!
During the first week, we were lucky enough to go on our first school trip as a new class to Horton Kirby, which tied in with our topic of Rivers for this term. We had so much fun and were praised for our exemplary behaviour. We went into the river and measured the different depths, raced rubber ducks, used microscopes to look at permeable and impermeable rocks and we used lego to create barriers for river beds.
Welcome to our new Year 4 class page
We have been enjoying reading The Iron Man as a class and we will be writing some fantastic newspaper articles!

Our topic this term is Mountains. There has been lots of art and geography linked to this!
Here are pictures of us exploring how adverbs are used in writing and action!

This term year 3 have been studying the text Gangsta Granny by David Walliams. As part of this we have been lucky enough to go and see the production of this wonderful book live on stage! The children were able to enjoy this heart warming story come to life and really got involved with the audience participation. They were all really buzzing with excitement when the show ended and it certainly was a day we will remember!
Augustine's Amazing Homework!
A big thank you to all the children and parents who put so much effort into these wonderful board games. The children have thoroughly enjoyed playing them and have worked well together when sharing instructions and following rules.
This term we have been learning different skills in Gymnastics at Faversham Gym. This has been a great opportunity for the children to use a wide range of equipment and to develop some fantastic skills!
During Science week Augustine class focused on computer science. As part of this exciting week we went on a trip to London to the Science Museum. it was very exciting and the children had the opportunity to explore a range of ideas through the use of the wonder lab. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to explore a range of ideas. On Tuesday we had a visit from a computer programmer, this is where we learnt all about binary as well as asking Steve lots of questions about being a computer programmer. We also learnt about famous computer scientists during the week and wrote biographies about them. We explored the idea of robots and had a go at building them. This was a fantastic week that we all loved!
Safer Internet Day!
Today (06-02-2018) we have been learning how to be safe online. As a class we have been thinking about our digital foot print. We enjoyed making our digital foot print thinking about all the different ways in which we might use the internet. We also took part in an activity that made us think about how we were all connected by our activity on the internet but also to think how at times this could make us vulnerable and to always check with an adult before doing something new on the internet. Here are some pictures of our activities.
Augustine class would like to share their journey through art week.
Look at the pictures below to see all the wonderful things we created during art week.
We enjoyed exploring different mediums to draw with and really enjoyed looking light and dark with different light sources. We explored a range of Joseph Wright 'of Derby's' work and identified that most of his work revolves around one light source.
This week we have been making bread in class. We enjoyed watching it rise and making rolls. We look forward to sharing them with you at Church on Thursday. We thought about the chemical reaction of the yeast and used our measuring skills to make the bread.
On Friday 19th May 2017 Cranmer Class led the collective worship. We spoke about our school value, Friendship. We spoke about what makes a good friend and how Jesus was good friends with his 12 disciples.
As part of our English this term we have written newspaper reports and non-chronological reports based on an alien landing in Bapchild and Tonge.
We also met a special scientist Dr James Tennant who spoke to us about the alien artefacts.
