Kiannah - "We didn't get it on the first try, but we practised and then we got it."

Archie - "I got the rhythm eventually. When I lost the rhythm, I looked for who had it and then joined back in."

Nicole - "I really liked the Hanky Panky song and we were all laughing and having fun."

Art Week

Trip to South Foreland Lighthouse

Dover Castle trip!

LFTLHenry Moore

VIP DayDuring Art Week, we visited South Foreland Lighthouse to inspire our artwork for the week. It was incredibly windy, but we thoroughly enjoyed our tour by Chris and Brandon. We then worked alongside local artists to create lighthouse lanterns using willow wood and latex.

Leo – “I liked the topic because it was interesting and I hadn’t done it before.”

Ollie – “I enjoyed the trip and seeing inside the lighthouse. The view was amazing from the top.”

Leo – “It was creative and I liked building the structures instead of drawing.”

Dover Castle

Kasey - "We went to see the statue of Bertram Ramsay. He was really important during World War II as he led the Navy. He was called back from retiring after World War I."

Harry - "My favourite part was the tunnels and the best part was the video because it was cool seeing WWII footage. I really liked the keep because you had a good view from the top."

Edie - "I liked Admiralty Lookout as we could have a go at Morse code and playing with the different communication devices."

We had a fantastic morning at The Science Jamboree. We had fun looking at different scientists, blowing bouncing bubbles, making rainbows from different liquids, transferring forensic evidence and programming a robot!
