We had such fun making pizzas at Pizza Express on Thursday. We learnt how to make the bases, chose lots of yummy toppings and then once they had been cooked we bought them back to class and enjoyed eating them.
Walliams Class Exhibition
Friday, 25 January
Our class exhibition was pretty fantastic, even if we do say so ourselves. We spent the morning baking homemade Chocolate, Oreo and Smartie cakes for the parents to have with their refreshments. There was super participation from all children – and parents – which resulted in a wonderful afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came along.
Afternoon Visit to Margo Selby Studio
Monday 21 January
By Sam and Daisy Y4
We were very excited to visit Margo Selby studio on Monday. When we arrived they gave us a friendly welcome. We were shown the weaving and they explained the thread count, it was very mathematical as the weaving was a 1000 count thread! Then we went upstairs to the workshop and they showed us the main products which they sell, there were cushions, scarfs, throws and lots more. Next we visited the weaving room where a lady was weaving, we were all very impressed as it looked very technical. Back downstairs we were allowed to choose a sample piece of material to take with us. Margo came back to school with us and in the classroom we designed our own patterns inspired by our visit. We all had an inspirational afternoon and we would like to thank Margo for taking the time and showing us her amazing designs and products.

Seahorse Class Exhibition
Last Friday, the Seahorses danced, sang and presented some of their best work from this year to their parents and carers at the Class Exhibition. The class also said a fond farewell to Emily with a final song, performed together.
We hope you were impressed with their work and enjoyed seeing your child’s amazing mixture of talent.
Thank you to the School Council who has helped organise visits for the children to Pizza Express to make Margherita pizzas. On Thursday it was the turn of Seahorse Class.
They were all given aprons, hats and dough and had lots of fun flattering and tossing it in the air to create their base. They added the sauce and cheese and then cooked them in the oven. Once ready the children boxed them up and when they arrived back to school they enjoyed eating them in the class. Yummy!
In terms 1 and 2 the Seahorse Class worked very hard to create some fantastic stories, fact files and learn some important new skills too.
We've written about Roald Dahl's books, created our own gruesome characters, learnt a lot about robots and created our own robot stories as well. In Maths learnt lots of new skills, doing complex written arithmetic in class and in our learning groups. We've also learnt a lot about Stone Age life and what it would be like to live in those times. We've also considered what we like about living in Whitstable and learnt some key Geographical facts about our hometown.
Overall, it's been a very busy start to the year, but we're ready to learn even more in 2017 and laugh along the way as well.
A huge well done to Miles, Finn and Joe in Seahorse class. They all play for Tankerton FC Under 9s and have won the League Cup. Well done boys, we are all very proud of your brilliant achievement.
Well done Riley!
