The experience has opened our eyes to the world of teaching and what it takes to run a primary. Thank you especially to all the teachers that allowed us to help out in their classrooms, whether it was organising books or choreographing dances.

As the end of our work experience arrives, we would both like to say thank you for this wonderful experience. We both loved returning to the primary school that helped us get to where we are now

SALUS

As part of their transition to secondary schools, Year 6 had the opportunity to go to Yalding to an exciting ‘Safety In Action’ day on Friday 26 April.

This specific event is to help the children transition to secondary school by delivering high impact scenarios designed to make the children aware of the everyday dangers that may face them as they get older. These scenarios included water safety, road safety, rail safety, drug and alcohol awareness, first aid, fire safety and how to deal with problems associated with peer pressure.

Each of the agencies are designed to deliver emotional health and well-being and arm the children with information to make the right decisions in the future. The children have all been given Safety in Action booklets which they can work through with an adult at home to discuss these issues further.   We hope you will find these useful to help with those necessary discussions before starting secondary school. 

Marks were awarded for good behaviour and questions answered correctly and one of our groups actually got full marks!  Congratulations to Elizabeth, Tia, Alex, Lucy, Brooke, Morgan, Jessica, Poppy, Lilly, Alina and Emily – a great team effort!

The winning group show how to put someone who is unconscious into the recovery position in the First-Aid tent.

Talking about Internet safety – if someone posted photos of you as a baby on the internet, how might that make you feel?

Groups were handed various packages in the Drugs tent in an attempt to make children realise they could easily be duped into carrying something illegal for someone.

Everyone had a great time. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big well done to all those that took part. They were a credit to the school.

PTA Film Night

After school on Friday 26 April the PTA held a film night. After school, the children settled down, with popcorn and a drink in hand, to watch the film Sing. At half time the children had hot dogs and doughnuts.

All the children had a fantastic time and the event was a great success. The event raised £560.

I would like to say a big thank you to the PTA for all their hard work, which made the event a great success and ensured all the children had a great time.

Art Workshop at Invicta

On Wednesday 1 May, the whole of Year R visited Invicta Grammar School, where they worked together with some of the Invicta students on an art project, which when finished will form the entrance to the Reception area of the school. Everyone contributed, painting wooden acorns, leaves, tress and letters, which will all be put together to create the final masterpiece!

Well done Year R and I look forward to seeing the finished article.

School Uniform

At Aylesford we are very proud of our uniform and it is fantastic to see so many dressed in the appropriate summer uniform, looking very smart.

Can I remind parents that summer uniform is now expected to be worn. We expect the school summer dress, which has the school logo on the collar to be worn.

Girl’s socks should be plain, white ankle socks, no lace, patterns or adornments.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
