Geocaching

As part of our Geography week learning, Year 6 partnered up with Year 1 to go geocache hunting! The children had to work together deciphering clues as to the geocache’s location. Once found, the children needed to place one object of theirs into the box and take one item out to show they had found the location of a box. It was lovely to see the Year 6 children showing their caring, mature sides when working with Year 1.

Canada Day

Last week, Year 6 attended the Canada Day service in Folkestone.  Those that went to remember the soldiers were brilliant role models as they were extremely mature and respectful throughout the service.

Thank you, Year 6.

Geography Enrichment 3: Lunging for Litter!

Last week marked our 3rd Geography Enrichment of the academic year. Themed around the concept of looking after our environment and the shared responsibilities we all hold, Sandgate Primary School was ‘Lunging for Litter’ in order to do our part for the planet!

As well as Geocaching with other year groups (a fantastic and exciting way for children to demonstrate their Friendship values), we were lucky to have visiting speakers from ActionAid, Greenpeace and ‘Save the Bees’ throughout the week; each talk discussed a different aspect of doing our part to care for our environment, both locally and globally.

Thank you to all children for their continued enthusiasm to care for our home.

Keep on lunging,

Mr. Goodeal

This afternoon, the children have enjoyed the Zip Wire, The Matrix, Aeroball and Archery, but most of all they have loved their cabins.

As part of our annual ‘Tidy Cabin Competition’, rooms are inspected every morning and awarded points for the greeting received, general tidiness, bathroom cleanliness and overal aroma; results have been varied!

All the children settled into their cabins well and enjoyed a great night of sleep.

We were up bright and early this morning to stock up on a hearty breakfast, which included: sausages, eggs, cereal, toast, porridge and fresh fruit leaving us energised for this morning’s activities.

Here are our first batch of photos – enjoy! 🙂

Home Learning Projects

 

Wow! Year 6, you have out-done yourselves!

Year 6 were set the task to choose a person from history that they would like to conduct research on.  They then had the choice of how to present the information discovered; I’m sure you will agree that the effort the children put into these projects and the information they discovered is fantastic.

As well as presenting their projects to their peers, Year 6’s learning is now on display for the school to see and learn from. We have also used the information gathered on these historical figures in our writing, creating non-chronological reports and a fiction piece!
