Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

Welcome back to Term 5! We hope you had a lovely Easter holiday, keeping up with your reading and learning your times tables and hopefully you haven't eaten too much chocolate!

Although Term 4 was a short term – it was a particularly busy one with everyone working hard towards their targets, fundraising for Comic Relief, dressing up for World Book Day and celebrating reading, as well as the Easter craft event arranged by the Friends of Goat Less. Make sure you have a look at the photos of our lovely eggs (under the news and events tab – past events) we have some very talented and creative parents and children!


Term 5 is also a short term and just as busy as last term. Year 6 and year 2 will be completing their SATs assessments - keep working hard and we know that you will do really well! For Pygmy, Cashmere, Kinder and Billy class, they will be starting new topics and Angora and Alpine will be continuing with their topic from last term, your child's class newsletter will be sent out during the first week of term. With any luck, Term 5 will also bring lots of sunshine so we can take our learning outside of the classroom within our school grounds and also into the local community. Year 5 will be getting active on their bikes and taking part in the 'Bikeability' programme and we will also be joining in with Jamie Oliver's 'Food revolution Day' to encourage healthy eating after all of that chocolate!

To ensure that we are able to support you, we have added the key dates for the year to the calendar on the website in order to help you plan ahead. Please also follow this link for a copy of key dates. We will try our best to keep to these dates, but occasionally changes might occur.
