Tulip Class: September 2020 - July 2021
Black History Month
Inspired by the work of Stormzy, Banksy & the BLM movement
In class today, we really focused our learning for Black History month. We started off the morning by discussing equality and what racism is. Using Stormzy as our well-known figure in modern day society, we discussed and debated whether we believe he should be Prime Minister. Would his experience with racism and inequality help our country become a better place? Or could he continue to use his platform to educate the world about the importance of fairness and kindness to all.
We then wanted to show our thoughts and beliefs about equality through art. Investigating the British artist Banksy, we have created some of our own pieces of art commenting on equality using his style as our inspiration.
Quotes from children:
'Today was really good, we learnt a lot about why black lives matter and how people should be treated. We've also found out ways to stop people being unkind to each other. We are all the same.'
'I've really enjoyed today. It's been interesting to get an insight to understand how people have felt in the past due to racism and to now look at how we can stop this.'

Term 5 TT Rockstars Results
Hello all of you Times Tables Rockstars!
It's been four weeks since our TTRockstars Championship winners were announced and we've been keeping count of all the coins that you've earned since.
This term's class winners are Lynx Class with an impressive 96,361 coins.
A massive well done and thank you from all of the Lynx Class goes to Lily who earned 45,712 coins on her own! An amazing achievement, beating some of the other classes' combined scores! This means that Lily is our TTRockstars Queen for Term 5. Congratulations Lily!
Kurt in Year 3 put in a valiant effort, earning over 18,000 coins for 2nd place and Stuart in Year 6 finished 3rd with over 12,000 coins.
Well done to everyone who took part this term and don't forget to keep practising over the next few weeks! Perhaps the TTRockstar trophy can move from Lynx Class next term - it's becoming part of the furniture in there! Mr Leone
Ancient Egypt: Mummification
As part of our Topic on Ancient Egypt we have been learning about the process of mummification. To help us understand it, we mummified an orange. We hooked out its brain, removed the internal organs, dried it and filled it with a salt and spices. Then we wrapped it tightly in linen strips, including amulets, charms and a personal message. The oranges are now awaiting their coffins and final sarcophagi, which we are making next week. We are going to unwrap our mummified oranges on the last day in July to see what has happened.
Class Exhibition: Pop Up Harvest Restaurant
What a wonderful afternoon we all had at our Pop Up Harvest Restaurant. The children prepared a home cooked meal of Harvest vegetable soup with crusty bread. Whilst enjoying the meal the children presented an art presentation of LS Lowry which they have been working on this term and also lots of facts about Pine Martens!
After the parents were invited to look at examples of their work. We hope everyone had a lovely.
19 September 2019
Pine Martens enjoyed a morning of pizza making courtesy of Whitstable's Pizza Express this week. They learnt how pizzas are made and the ingredients used. They worked with fresh dough, rolling and forming their own bases, before adding toppings and cooking them. But probably their favourite part of the morning was be able to eat slices straight from the oven. Delicious!
On Friday 11 January Dahl Class had their class exhibition. In the exhibition we sang The Fresh Prince of Bel Air with everyone singing or playing an instrument. Then we had some wonderful musicians playing their instruments brilliantly. We also had a Kahoot! quiz which all the parents too part in. Polly and Izzy played the heads, shoulders hips game and Nancy and Phoebe demonstrated and played the Minute Game.
Elliot showed the parents how good his handwriting is and the parents all wrote beautiful on the whiteboard to see whose parents had the best handwriting.
Thank you to all the parents and carers for coming along.

What is Coeliac Disease?
Isabella has this condition and thought it would be a lovely idea to inform her class with an insightful presentation on the condition. Thank you Isabella for sharing this with us, if you would like to find out more please click on the below link.
"I wanted to explain to my class what Coeliac Disease was and do a presentation about it to Dahl Class, so that they understand a bit more why sometimes I don't feel very well and have to be careful about what food I eat and where it's cooked. We played games with people representing 'villi', which are in your intestines and work differently for people with coeliac. I threw tennis balls which they caught easily and then netballs at one of them and they all fell over; this represented what happens to the villi when gluten hits them.
We did some activities and Mr Wren's wife had made some gluten free and non-gluten free cakes to see if anyone could taste the difference. Hopefully they all understand a bit more now."
