History Day

We had a great 'History Day' where we focused on the history of our School. We got hold of some old school documents that listed the address and vocation of children/parents that came to Sheldwich. We then plotted these places on an old map of Sheldwich, while also comparing to where children travel from today to come to school. As well as this we worked with quills and visited the old Georgian School House in Sheldwich Villiage. 

Thanet School Trip

We have enjoyed a fantastic school visit to the Turner Contemporary and Margate combined with a visit to Ramsgate and District Reform Synagogue. It was an excellent day, full of activities and jam-packed with learning. We got to see the Turner's exhibition on form and line-focused creation. We also completed some geography focused field work on the beach and in the town, working out where the key features of Margate seaside were and looking at the wildlife we find on British shores. Our Synagogue visit was lead by Rabbi Cliff and was so insightful. We were able to see a 200 year old Torah scroll, of which Rabbi Cliff read from and explained how the synagogue cares for such a precious Holy Book. The children were also able to see some great examples of Jewish artefacts that they have been learning about in their RE sessions.

We had such fun during our STEM week, which was themed on 'Movie Magic'. We watched a clip from a different children's film each day and completed an investigation or activity based on it! We watched ratatouille and learnt about a balanced diet - making omelettes along the way. We also watched Luca and worked out how much water would be wasted if we left the tap running while we brushed our teeth. Our biggest challenge was making a solar system in a box after watching a Star Wars clip - the children tried their best to make the planets to scale!

Oare Gunpowder Works School Trip

We had a brilliant time on our school trip to Oare gunpowder works. We learnt all about how the site was used to make gunpowder in the past and about it's current role in Faversham as a protected nature site. We enjoyed the outdoor learning and forest school activities along the way too!

Essential Letters and Sounds

Please click on the link below to access videos which will help you to support your child/ren with their phonics.



These sounds are taught in Phase 5. Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children will be taught these sounds.

‘High Frequency’ Words

All children in Classes R, 1 and 2 bring home a pack of ‘High Frequency’ words every week on a Friday. Some of these words are very difficult to sound out the normal way so they need to be memorised. It is very important for the children to learn these words as they will come up consistently in reading books. As the children move to Class 1 and 2, the words form the basis of the childrens’ writing.

We would like the children to spend just 5 minutes per day learning the words – you may like to devise a game with the words or write the words on paper to stick around the house!

Please keep the words in your child’s school bag so they can be used in school on a daily basis.

If you have any questions regarding ‘High Frequency’ words (HFW) please speak to your class teacher or Mrs Fairs, the Key Stage 1 Manager.


Find below, a large list of HFW to check off throughout the year.
