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
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.
