On Friday Giraffe Class looked at a poem called new Moon by Kate Wakeling. They read it and following some practical laying on the grass and looking at the sky, produced poems of the same style about the sky. I think you will agree, Alice’s poem is sensational. Whatsmore, the poet is a friend of the family and her mum forwarded it to the author who was amazed by it and so pleased that her work was being used as a stimuli.
Leopards have painted part of the leopard by painting a separate canvas each, their own interpretation of a segment from a photo. It’s about 2.5ft x 2.5ft and is stunning.
Thank you An, Mrs Benson and YR2 for creating a wonderful mosaic for the defibrillator phone box. On Saturday some of the pupils and Mrs Benson attended the official opening ceremony in the village and were treated to free awareness training.
Following a picnic lunch, the school then opened its' classroom doors and parents were warmly invited to experience an afternoon in the life of Goudhurst & Kilndown pupil. There was a real buzz throughout the school and lots of parents commented on how it had been a wonderful day, just perfect!
We are very proud of our most recent artistic creation in the school. You might have noticed some empty shelves that used to have speakers on them in our school hall. They were crying out for a whole school art project that would represent the sense of community and the bond we have with the church. We now have a decorated wooden cut out of the school on the left hand side and both Goudhurst and Kilndown church on the right hand side. All the children in our school painted a wooden cut out of a person and decorated a small wooden 3D person and they are now adorning the wall of the hall. It has been wonderful seeing the children looking for their own art work and enjoying the results of their creative work. We hope you will pop in and have a look whenever you are next in school. Thank you to Mrs Benson for leading this exciting project.
