Book Week 28th February- 4th March


The Twits by Roald Dahl

Year 2 have been exploring The Twits book. They each made their own Roly-Poly birds. The children loved being creative and getting a little bit messy.

Children in 2L created a life size Mr Twit. Lots of team work was involved and Mr Twit is now living in the KS1 corridor. 





Leon and the Place in between


In Year 6 we have been reading Leon and the Place Between. We imagined that we were Leon being placed into the magician's box and described our own fantasy world we would like to have been transported to.

Jo-Jo 6S

The air around me crackled and fizzed as I was tumbling relentlessly towards the in between. Hundreds of people were surrounding me. Children in rags are running past me. Down the street, someone is yelling “Pollock, fresh Pollock! Buy three for 1 shilling.” The smell of salt is stinging my nostrils. Noise is coming from a large building. The sign says “ale and beds since 1862”. Boats are being pulled out with 5 to 6 men on each one. Nets and oars are lying around. Children in bathing suits are splashing in the water, laughter and giggles enter my eardrums.  The cool sea breeze is tickling my cheeks. I am strolling down the street taking in every breath when I notice the atmosphere abruptly changes. The market is now in the distant horizon and an unwelcome stench fills my nostrils. This part of the town was less crowded. In addition, it has less warmth. Suddenly, I came to a halt standing in front of a large 2-storey building. Its’ bricks are worn and in large letters it says “workhouse”. Right at that moment, I knew I should turn back…


Hollie 6K


The air around me crackled and fizzed as I tumbled relentlessly towards a new dazzling, magical world. I make my way through my new luxurious world, while hearing far in the distance many birds chirping sweetly to the sound of a quiet, calming tune. While bouncing from mushroom to mushroom, I can taste the delicious, mouth-watering taste of candy floss as if it is falling from the sky. Feeling amazed, I make my way through a mystical, enchanted forest. I experience seeing many wonderful, thrilling things including magic pathways, stories and high glistening wings; it felt like I was in a real life storybook. As I reach far out into the crispy air, I can feel tingles on my fingertips of white fluffy clouds. Making my way through the vibrant, blue sky, I can smell the bright colour of the rainbow. While I swing high into the sky, I can hear the waves splashing in the bitter, blue sea.             




100 days of School

KS1 Science Day - Tuesday 21st March 2017



These were some of the reactions by the KS1 children on their Science day, Tuesday 21 March. It was a great day, assisted by year 4 and 5 students. The children got to come with their class, see the great projects their classmates created and experience some new science. They got to build spaghetti bridges, blow up balloons with vinegar and baking soda, play a classification game, learn how to do some coding on the iPads and play with oobleck! Everyone had a great time and it was so exciting to see the science being learned.

Great work everyone, I look forward to even more amazing projects next year!

Year 4 - The Tudors

'In 4K, we have just started to learn about The Tudors. Last week we had our Tudors day and my students seem to be very excited about learning all about Tudors. Today in the afternoon we spent our time creating Facebook profiles. Not just any Facebook profile, but for the six different wives of Henry VIII. Yesterday we spent our time in ICT researching the six different wives and coming up with good information that we could add to our profiles, that could be written in chronological order! Next class, we will have a gallery walk so that we all learn about each wife and how they were apart of Henry VII life!' - Miss Klomp

Year 4 Roman Day

Year 4 had a blast during their Roman day. There were brilliant costumes, many Roman gladiators, gods and goddesses! We learned more about the Romans, sang songs about the Romans and read some stories about the creation of Rome. Everyone had a great time!

5T - Team Building - 17th October 2016

Today in class I decided to use our PE slot to do some team building activities. I split my class in to two groups; one of twelve and one of thirteen. I gave each team a box that contained an unmade SAMBA goal. They were given no instructions other than to make what was in the box. They had to use their team skills and listening skills to build the goals.  Unfortunately, due to inclement weather we had to finish our activity short! The photos show the progress that was made thus far - super effort 5T.

EWPA Football Team - 22nd March 2016

What a game! We arrived at Hurst Primary to play against Hurst in their own backyard! An advantage for them, that was only leveled by the marvelous support which was provided by East Wickham parents and staff (thank you). After full time the deadlock could not be broken, with some great defending (even from the front) from both teams. Extra time and 10 more minutes of nail-biting action! The full time whistle blew and the teams couldn't be separated. 0-0 and the cup was shared.
This is truly an incredible achievement. We are now officially the best primary school football team in the whole of Bexley! Not only were we the winners of the cup, but we were very gracious in victory. Fair play and good spirit was upheld throughout...turns out nice guys DON'T finish last!
I personally would like to thank everyone for their support and good wishes. All of the boys made us incredibly proud.
Thanks again
Mr. Thompson
