Our Little Rescue...

Still image for this video
Our little hoglet is having a lovely feast in its new bed. He/she is going home with Mrs Reeves for a sleepover in her garage, before being taken to a wildlife rescue centre tomorrow.

It’s really important to look out for hedgehogs at the time of year as they need to be fattening up to hibernate. If you spot one out in the daytime, like we did today, it’s likely that something isn’t right. Try to give them some water and cat food to help them.

McGinty Harvest Poem

Still image for this video
As promised, here is our performance from the Harvest service this morning. The children read beautifully.

Between Monday 11th October and Friday 15th October we will be taking part in the 2021 Mini London Marathon. We will be running, jogging and walking 2.6 miles through the week. Children should therefore wear their PE kit to school every day of that week.


On Friday 15th October, to mark the end of the challenge, children have the option to dress up for the day as their sporting role model. They are welcome to dress up as any sporting star from tennis to gymnastics to swimming or anything in between. 


As part of this challenge, we will be raising money for local charity the Heart of Kent Hospice to support our school community’s contribution to ‘Elmer’s Big Heart of Kent Parade.’ Each child should therefore gather sponsorships to take part in the event and donations can be made via our school ‘Virgin Money Giving’ page on the link below.


We hope that this will be a fun, inclusive event where children of all ages and abilities can raise money for a fantastic local cause, whilst taking part in a whole school event.
