Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

Welcome back to Term 4!

Term 3 was a short but exciting term with lots going on including a visit from KIC theatre. All of the classes spent some time exploring their topics and a great time was had by all. Luckily, we have managed to avoid the snow except for a few flakes! This term, Cashmere and Kinder are continuing their topic on New Zealand from last term and they will be learning the Hakka - I feel sure that we'll see some interesting face painting! Pygmy class will also continue their topic on 'The Frozen Planet' and will be holding their own G8 Summit to tackle the problem of the melting Polar ice caps. Watch out for the next politicians amongst your children!


Term 4 will be another busy and exciting term for us all and there will be lots to look forward to including Red Nose Day. We also welcome our school Guinea Pigs which were the outright winner from Alpine and Angora's campaign across the school. 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. If this happens we will let you know as soon as possible via the newsletters, emails, texts or through the website.
