The children have settled in well to our temporary classroom in the Oaks library and everyone has made us feel very welcome. At the present time, the Swale Speech and Language Unit is still up but, has now been fenced round ready for demolition! The children are very excited about this and it will be ready for new beginnings. Keep watching for further pictures.
This term Year 1 and 2 are learning about Victorians and already have learnt about what the Victorians did at the seaside. At the moment we are learning what school was like and the children are particularly fascinated by Victorian punishment!
Year R have been learning about keeping safe at the beach and have had a visit at school from the RNLI .
All the children enjoyed their trip to Whitstable and were lucky to see and have a talk about the lifeboat.
As the weather is going to be very hot over the coming weeks please make sure your child has a hat and if required suntan lotion too.
Going Going Gone!
The children have been very excited watching our building being demolished. We were out there watching the first part of the building being demolished on Monday. The children loved seeing the door being pulled off and the lifted up by the crane, looking very small! They also had photos to see what it looked like inside when they were dismantling and preparing for demolition, including the toilet! Then the big container lorry came and they watched Blackbirds' building being hoisted in the air, crushed and then put into the container.
Over the week the whole Unit has now been demolished and only Blackbirds' shed remains!
We thought you would like to see some of the photos.
Fleur De Lis Museum
Blackbirds went to the Fleur de Lis museum in Faversham, to consolidate their learning about Victorians and take at look at life from the past at other times. The children were very engaged and had remembered about some of the items we had looked at in school, as well as school punishment! They also asked some good questions. The children were allowed to touch the objects which was a lovely experience for them. All the children enjoyed the museum.
Hope you like the photos.
