Goat Lees Primary School, Ashford

Welcome back to Term 6! We hope you had a lovely holiday, keeping up with your reading and learning your times tables. Year 6 and Year 2 we hope you had a well deserved rest after your SATs. We are also extremely proud of our children who have raised over £900 for the Earthquake appeal for the survivors in Nepal. Well done Goat Lees!

Although Term 5 was a short term – it was a particularly busy one with everyone working hard towards their targets, SATs tests, Bikeability for Year 5, class trips, the whole school cooking for Jamie Oliver's Food revolution Day as well as taking part in the Roots to Food workshops.Wow! Thank you to the parents who came in and helped with our cooking across the school.

Term 6 is a longer term with even more going on. Pygmy class will be going on their residential and Billy class are going to the Rare Breeds Centre. During week 2, the whole school will be taking part in a Maths day where we have the Puzzle Company coming in. Later in the term, we will also be holding a Science Enrichment Day. Of course we will also be holding our annual School Games Day and this will be part of Sports Week - fingers crossed for sunshine! Finally at the end of this term we will also be saying our 'goodbyes' to Year 6 whom we are sure will do in their own unique style!
