Our Amazing School

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, July 18, 2019 - 23:28
Wow! What another very busy and successful school year we have had and last Friday was a shining example of the day in the life of our wonderful school. It started at about 6.30am with parents and staff together setting up for sportsday! Mr & Mrs Stanford even arrived with bacon sandwiches which were appreciated very much. Indeed it was a fabulous morning enjoyed by everyone. Well done to all the children but particularly those in Scotney who won both the KS1 and KS2 sports cup. Thank you to Mrs Mileham for organising the event, which as ever ran very smoothly. Thank you to the PTFA for providing refreshments and of course to you the parents, families and friends for all your support.

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!

Highlights from Bugsy Malone

Wow what an amazing show! This years production was very complex, very adventurous but it was executed brilliantly! It was hilariously funny and a spectacularly professional performance.  

For 2 nights this week, Year 6 and the rest of KS2 astounded us with their 'West End Stage' quality end of year performance, (Highlights of) Bugsy Malone.  The acting, singing, dancing and costumes were simply stunning - a true ensemble performance and a truly fitting end to Year 6s time at the school.  As Mr Goodman said about his class "The children epitomised 'Being Brave and Bold."  He would also like to thank the following people:

Sean & Robin - Directors extraordinaire.

Shereen & Greg - Incredible costumes, stage direction and sound.

Mrs Mileham & Mrs Plewes - Choreography Felix Goodman

Lighting Guy and Lucy Thompson - Filming & film editing

Mrs Wyatt, Mrs Omer & Miss Wilkins & their Teaching Assistants - singing/dance practice with their classes.

Stuart Murray - creating a cut out of Dandy Dan

Mr Alex Bolton - Bethany Head of Drama for assisting us in the initial Auditions

Most of all though, the children in Year 6 and Years 3, 4 and 5.

The refreshments and retiring collections across both nights raised an amazing total £1,138.90; £380 to the school, Weald Family Hub and Help for Heroes.

World Book Week

Submitted by headteacher on Sunday, March 10, 2019 - 22:40

This week has been a flurry of activities for world book day! We began the week with each teacher visiting a different class and reading them their favourite book. This was a lovely experience, and the children really enjoyed having a new adult in their room!

On Tuesday, we were lucky enough to have a visiting author - Katy Chalk - to read us parts of her book 'The History Sphere' and take writing workshops to show us how to become better readers, and better writers. Many classes have put her advice to good work and have been busy writing stories inspired by her visit. 
 
Then on Thursday, each of the classes took part in different activities based on their favourite books, and had the opportunity to share their favourite books with each other. 
What an amazing week it's been - we can't wait until next year!

DT and Art challenge

Submitted by headteacher on Sunday, January 27, 2019 - 20:28

On Wednesday 23rd January, Zebra Class were invited to attend a DT and Art workshop, along with Mrs Benson and Miss Wilkins, at St Ronan’s School. The children were given the knowledge, skills and amazing resources to create incredible Harry Potter wands and wand boxes all by themselves. It was an exciting, challenging, creative, messy and fun experience for all. 

I received this email from St. Ronan's:
 

"The children were a credit to you, so beautifully behaved and such lovely manners, lots of staff have commented. Thank you for bringing them to us; same time next year?"

 
Well done to all the children and thank you to St. Ronan's, Mrs Benson and Mrs Wilkins for organising the trip.

Wow didn't they do well!! Last week we were treated to three wonderful performances by Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. The children spoke confidently and capably and sang beautifully. Well done to everyone, you were amazing!  
 
On Tuesday 12th Decemeber members of the community joined us for lunch, tea and mince pies and then enjoyed watching the dress rehearsal. I received this email following the performance:
 
Thank you for such a splendid lunch followed by the enchanting nativity play.  I am sure the subsequent performances will have gone well as the children were so confident and word perfect.  Whoever organised this production did a very good job.

My renewed thanks for inviting me.

With all good wishes for Christmas and the New Year.

The Tempest

Submitted by headteacher on Thursday, November 23, 2017 - 23:37

What an amazing evening! The children of Y5 this week performed the Tempest at the Trinity Theatre in Tunbridge Wells. Their performance was described as being "Magical, Mysterious and Marvellous." All the children spoke confidently and clearly, indeed their was vocal energy and their timing was excellent. Well done to everyone and thank you to Miss Wilkins and her team for all their hardwork preparing the children. I am a very proud Headteacher!

I would also like to extend my gratitude and pass on a huge thank you to Robyn Weaver and Sean Gilder for the enormous amount of time and patience they so freely gave in the preparation of what truly was an amazing performance on Wednesday evening.  I would also like to thank Mark Payne for all of his help with light and sound and also to Shereen Shimmin for her help with the costumes. 

We are so lucky to have such a talented and generous parents in our school community.
