Miss Brown and the England deaf futsal team were invited to watch the England women’s team in the Royal Box. They were presented with the warm up tops the women’s team wore which had their names on in sign language.

Year 6 visited Canterbury House Care Home this afternoon to share their learning about World War 2 in the local area with the residents. The children had an amazing time talking to everyone and learning about their personal experiences. 

Ethelbert Road has enjoyed taking part in Sign Language Week. The theme was Promoting BSL and we engaged in lots of different activities. The whole school took up the challenge of learning different signs and enjoyed taking part in a special PE session where the children communicated via signing only. Some classes joined in the largest sign language lesson, learnt songs and we ended the week by making a special video.

The theme for Neurodiversity Celebration Week this year is 'Challenging Stereotypes'. Ethelbert Road is actively working to raise awareness about neurodiversity and how different neurodivergences can present themselves, as well as debunking the myths associated with neurodivergent individuals.

Miss Brown has been selected to play for GB in the deaflympics. Fingers crossed they get the support they deserve! 

Support the Women’s Deaf GB Team!
Our amazing Year 6 children have written to sporting heroes to inform them of Miss Brown and the GB Futsal teams fight to get to the Deafolympics. They were shocked to find out that the team players must raise the funds needed to go to this event, even though they are representing Great Britain! The children linked this to the British Value of Equality and felt this value was not being used by the government in this case. Here are some of their powerful letters.

Ethelbert Road held their annual Christmas Tree Assembly today. The children came together in the hall to hang their decorations on the tree and to sing some festive songs. In good old  Ethelbert tradition the youngest and oldest child in the school switched on the lights 🎄🎄🎄

Good Luck Miss Brown

We all enjoy watching Miss Brown play Fustal football for England’s deaf women’s team in the World Cup. Miss Brown is an amazing role model, teaching us all to have a go, be resilient and to do our best.

This week we explored the vibrant festival of Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights! Our children had a fantastic time learning about the culture and traditions associated with this special celebration 🪔

A huge thank you to our families who donated books for our children to learn about diversity and inclusion. At Ethelbert Road we celebrate differences, including race, gender, religion, disability, and sexual orientation. Inclusion at our school means creating an environment where every individual feels valued and respected, and where everyone has a sense of belonging.

Congratulations Niamh and Evelyn (Year 5), who both received their Brownies Gold Awards on Monday. The Brownies Gold award badge was awarded to them as they have both completed all six section theme awards from the Girlguiding programme. This is a very special achievement as they are the only two Brownies in Faversham to have been awarded the Gold this year. Their leader described them as great role models and an inspiration to younger Brownies!

A huge thank you to our school councillors who have done a fantastic job of being the voice of the school this year. They have been busy organising discos, Ethelbert Road’s Got Talent and capturing the views of our children. They raised enough money for new blinds in the hall and brought play equipment for the playground. Well done everyone ⭐️

A huge thank you to our school councillors who organised another fantastic Ethelbert has Talent. The show was as outstanding as last year. Congratulations to all our entries and the winner Ellie and Elliott and our runner up Evan. 🎉

Our Year 6 children enjoyed a school trip to the Kent Police Open Day. The children enjoyed watching live demonstrations where they saw police officers in action, including pursuits and arrests. A particular favourite, was the dog unit display where the children saw police dogs in action too! The children also had fun visiting the 'firing range' unit and trying on police fire arms kit which was extremely heavy! 

Ethelbert Road celebrated the Kings coronation yesterday with a special assembly. The Scout, Guide, Cub and Brownie community planted a special Coronation bed designed by James in Year 3, we created a whole school picture using our finger prints, and each child received a commemorative medal.
