On Wednesday 7th March the Buzzards took part in the Big Dance at Tunbridge Wells. They danced to a song called “Seven Nation Army” by the White Stripes. The children worked really hard practising and performing.
A special mention needs to go to Jack Brooksbanks, who performed a short guitar solo at the beginning of the song! He was amazing!
Big thanks to Julie Brooksbanks, Rozelle Bowerman, Tora Pring, Mrs Fogg and Mrs Whittaker who all helped in various ways to support the children with their performance.
Thanks also goes to the PTA for paying for our caps and our fantastic parents who did a brilliant job supplying costumes and delivering the children to the theatre in the evening.
On Tuesday 27th February 20 children from Buzzards and Sparrowhawks Classes competed against other schools at the local Netball tournament. The children were brilliant. They really worked hard in both teams and were able to beat some of the other bigger schools and scores lots of goals. More importantly they really enjoyed themselves.
A big thank you goes to Nicky Wickham and Rachel Windus for coaching and leading the teams before and during the competition. We really appreciate your efforts. Thank you also to all parents who supported the children and transported them to the tournament.
Chris Voice – our lunchtime sports coach has been running a house team football competition over the past month on Fridays. The children have really enjoyed it and it has been very competitive. This time Kipling house won the competition. Well done to the children who all took part. It has been great to have so many enjoying sport during lunchtimes across all year groups. Keep an eye out for our next competition.
Last week Sparrow Hawks used Blue Planet 2 to inspire their writing. First they wrote a persuasive script to read out as a commentary over clips from the show. They then created their own sea creatures and wrote a letter each to Sir David Attenborough to persuade him to feature their creation in the next series of Blue Planet.
Sparrow Hawks could not believe it when a letter arrived just days later from Sir David Attenborough, thanking them for their letters.
Here is the letter, and some examples of the fantastic writing that has been happening in class.
