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. 

Year 3 enjoyed a model making workshop where they learnt how to designed and make volcanoes. In their science lesson they will learn how to make a chemical reaction in order  for the volcanoes to erupt! 

World War 2 Cooking in Years 5 and 6

Year 1 had a wonderful time at The Kent Life Museum. They experienced what it was like to live in Victorian times. This experience was linked to their learning about Florence Nightingale and brought their learning to life.

Year 5 and 6 visited The Royal Engineers Museum as part of their WW2 and Battle of Britain topic. They got to make V2 rockets and find out about life on the home front.

To bring our Stone Age to Bronze Age learning to life, this afternoon, Year 3 made Biscuithenge! We used shortbread biscuits and chocolate biscuit bars to represent the sarsen stone circles and horseshoe and custard creams to represent the bluestones. Afterwards, we ate some biscuits. This was because we are exceptional historians and wanted to show the wear and tear and damage Stonehenge has faced over the last 5000 years. It had absolutely nothing to do with us wanting to enjoy biscuits!

Maidstone Museum

Year 4 visited Ospringe to explore how it has changed over the past few hundred years, including identifying signs of the stream that used to run through the area. Mr Bennett delivered a workshop with many before and after photographs that fascinated us all. We conducted some fieldwork in the meadow, plotted key features on maps and recreated some old photos! Thank you so much to Mr Bennett for helping to organise an interesting outing and to our staff and volunteers for enabling the event to go ahead. 

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.

Year 3 had an amazing time at Kent Life for their Roman Day. They participated in lots of exciting activities and learnt lots about the Romans. The children particularly enjoyed meeting the Centurion and forming the turtle defence move.

Celebrating the Platinum Jubilee at Ethelbert Road

Year 1 have enjoyed learning about The Great Fire of London. This topic has inspired their writing and they have enjoyed exploring our locality looking at and sketchingTudor houses. The Mayor of Faversham spotted our children and came out to talk to them about their learning. 

Year 5’s Ancient Egyptian learning came to life when they visited Maidstone Museum and learnt about mummification. The children put their knowledge and skills to the test by mummifying an orange. They also enjoyed seeing a mummy first hand and linking their learning to a real life object. 

World War 2 and the Battle of Britain 

Year 5 and 6 are learning about World War 2 and The Battle of Britain. To bring their learning to life the classes visited The Royal Engineers' Museum in Gillingham to learn about life in Medway during WW2.

Remembrance Day

Still image for this video
On 11.11.2020 Ethelbert Road thought about all the people who fought in the wars to make this world a better place for us all. We marked this special day by making poppies and one by one we attached them to a display. We held a one minute silence and learnt why we should always remember this time. You can see our beautiful display in our school garden or enjoy watching our Remembrance video.
