On Thursday 23rd November year 3 will be going to the museum of Kent life for a stone age day. We would very much like to get into the spirit of the day by wearing archeologist / time team-type costumes. It should be a really fun day, filled with learning so we'd really like all the children to get involved if possible.

Also, if any parents would like to join us on the day, please let Mrs Wyatt know. (We need a few!)

Thank you
