Badminton Tournament

Badminton Tournament

The Jellyfish Class really enjoyed their badminton tournament this morning, where they took part in a range of activities with children from other schools in the local area. They were a pleasure to take out and demonstrated a wonderful, supportive attitude to their team mates. Well done Jellyfish!

Book Week

Book Week

This morning when the Jellyfish arrived to school they discovered that their classroom had been transformed into a chocolate/sweet lover’s dream, inspired by Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory in Roald Dahl’s famous book.

In response to a letter from Mr Willy Wonka himself, the Jellyfish class taste tested a range of chocolate and sweets to help Mr Wonka decide which sweet treat should be put into production first in his factory. They then went on to design their own chocolate bars, explaining why they chose the ingredients/flavours that they did.

 

 

Earthquakes and Volcanoes

Earthquakes and Volcanoes

This term Jellyfish have been learning about volcanoes and earthquakes in Geography. The children have found this topic fascinating and have been extremely engaged both inside and outside the classroom, with many children creating exploding volcano models, drawing pictures of volcanoes and carrying out lots of research to find out more about them.

Whilst looking at earthquakes the class discussed what they thought you should do if an earthquake were to occur. The children were then asked to design posters to instruct people how to be safe in an earthquake.

Here are their posters, didn’t they do a great job!

End of Term and a Fond Farewell!

End of Term and a Fond Farewell!

Well, well, well! What a year it has been and we’ve had some lovely celebrations to conclude it.

Prize Giving was magical, my surprise party yesterday afternoon at the park was absolutely brilliant and then today’s double celebration was wonderful.

It really has been a great and memorable four years that I will cherish forever. It’s been great knowing and teaching the children of Seabrook School and I know they’ll go on to reach their goals and achieve their dreams. I’ve been so lucky with the opportunities here at a Seabrook and this is thanks to all the children I have taught.

Thank you parents for all your support over the years and for everything else that you’ve all done. It’s been great working with you all.

Take care all and I’m sure I’ll be in contact in the not too distant future!

All the best,

Mr Dempster

Rounders Tournament!

Rounders Tournament!

The last Sports Trust event of the year and it was a good successful rounders tournament! As usual, children gave their all and did a great job. Children worked as a team, thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were very close to the bronze medal position. There’s always next year!

Victorian Day at Tenterden Railway

Victorian Day at Tenterden Railway

What a splendid day we’ve all had today! It was great to see all the children dressed up Victorian style. A huge effort was made by all so thank you!

After a pleasant coach journey to Tenterden, we started off by meeting our host Mr Harcourt and then had a tour around the museum followed by a Punch & Judy show, which was rather amusing!

For the train to and from Bodiam, we were absolutely treated to our own first class carriage! It was great fun and we learnt a lot thanks to Mr Harcourt. We were fortunate enough to meet the driver of the train and he stoker (fireman), who explained to us how a steam engine works. On the way back, we even had our lunch on the train which was really exciting!

When we arrived back in Tenterden, we received lots of waves from members of the public and one lady spoke to Mr Dempster and explained how excellently behaved the Jellyfish Class were and what a joy it was to see the children have so much fun!

Finally, children got to spend their money in the gift shop – how very intriguing that was!

It was an amazing day and one I know will live long in the memory. Thank you Jellyfish Class for being so wonderful!

Make time for music

Make time for music

Today these children performed in front of the whole school. They have all been learning how to play a musical instrument, some for a few years and some for only a few months. It was a very impressive performance from everyone and they should all feel very proud of their achievements.

Processed with MOLDIV

If your child felt  inspired by what they saw today and wish to begin playing a musical instrument next year, please fill in the leaflet that will be sent home this week and return to school before the end of June.

Victorian Games

Victorian Games

As part of their history learning, children learnt about and engaged in a variety of Victorian games including: Kim’s Game, Charades, Pass the Slipper, Squeak Piggy Squeak, Blindman’s Bluff and Reverend Crawley’s Game.

Why not teach your parents, siblings, grandparents and other family members some of the games you’ve learnt?!

Urban Sports Park Day

Urban Sports Park Day

As many of you may or may not know, there will be an urban sports park opening up in Folkestone this time next year!

The whole point of today was to give children a taste of all the different activities that will be available at the Urban Sports Park in Folkestone. Activities included: skateboarding, street football, hip-hop dancing, boxing, frisbee and yoga.

Children loved today as they were introduced to sports and activities that they may not have attempted before.

Gymnastics

Gymnastics

Today, children experienced a range of gymnastics moves and understood the importance of being elegant and delicate.

Children had great fun succeeding in and, in my case, desperately attempting moves including: the shoulder stand, the v, the back, front and side stretches and the straddle.

It was a great experience and the children loved all the newly learnt moves. Everyone had a whale of a time!
