Light Up New Romney

During term 2, year 4 were given the opportunity to create their own lantern for the Light Up New Romney parade!

The children were so excited and got to work straight away!

Working with the LUNR team, we decided that we wanted our lantern to be really special, so we based it on a song that we love as a school: My Lighthouse.

Each week children worked with the team to create a lighthouse and beams of light.

On the day we walked (and danced) the parade route proudly with our gorgeous lighthouse lantern and sang afterwards during the service in St Nicholas Church.

Year 4 had a lovely time working on this project with Light Up New Romney!

Queen’s Jubilee!

In Year 4, we created our own rosettes specifically for the Jubilee. We chose something that represented Queen Elizabeth for the middle of the rosette and then used the colours from the Union Jack flag to decorate it. At home, some children created their own crowns – the different designs were fantastic!

At lunchtime, we held a Jubilee party outside which was great fun. Finally, we held our own Jubilee concert which everyone took part in – there was singing and and dancing galore!

What a great way to celebrate such a special event!

Librarian and Author Visit

Today, we were lucky to have a visit from the Kent Library Service. The children were introduced to all of the different services they have to offer free of charge!


The children in years 3-6 had some workshops from a local author, Jo Clarke.  She spent the day visualising and encouraging the children in how to use their imagination in different ways – the children were so engaged and inspired. The work we got as a result was fantastic!
