At Rushey Green we practise AIM which means that our children will confidently talk about maths using the correct language; that they will be resilient and be able to investigate new areas of learning; and that they will be able to see the relevance of maths in everyday situations.
All workshops will have support materials for you to take away and will be very much ‘hands on’.
During our annual visit to Cobham Hall near Rochester we took part in a selection of secondary school “taster” lessons with Swedish students here for the week. The lessons included science, outdoor studies and drama.
If you are looking for a venue to hire for conferences, Church use, celebrations, meetings, etc. contact us on 0797 223 7418 for more information.
Prize Draw Winners for Science Week 2017
A fantastic well done to our budding scientists whose names were pulled out of the prize draw.
At Rushey Green we teach the children about ‘Values’ Education.
This helps children learn how to behave and how to be respectful, honest, compassionate, caring and responsible citizens. Our ‘Value’ for the month of March is ‘Hope’. Have a look at the work the children have produced to celebrate and understand what they think ‘Hope’ is.
In Reception we read the story of ‘Lost and Found’ by Oliver Jeffers. It tells the story of a boy who finds a penguin. The boy attempts to return the penguin to the south pole.
After we read the story we talked about how the penguin felt ‘hopeless’ and how the boy gave him hope by helping him.
We asked the class whether they had ever felt hopeless and what gave them hope.
“I felt hopeless when I lost my Aunty in Lewisham. I felt hopeful when a woman in the shop found me and we looked for my Aunty together” (Safa)
“I felt hopeless when I got in to trouble, when I told my mum I felt better” (Ilias)
“I felt sad because no one wanted to be my friend. I then asked Martin and he played with me” (Amarachi)
Our photos show a selection of poems from year 3 and a display using doves to express the thoughts about Hope in year 4. In the Nursery, the children used finger prints to make the word ‘Hope’ while year 1 and year 2 have produced posters with 2C making the outline of the word ‘Hope’ with their bodies.
FLY THE FLAG – COMMONWEALTH DAY – Monday 13th March 2017
Last Monday, 6L helped Mayor Bullock Fly the Flag for Commonwealth Day
The children read out poems and short compositions they had written based on the theme of peace in the world.
Some year 4 and year 6 children have produced amazing artefacts and projects based on their topics ‘World war 2’ ‘The Greeks’ ‘The Victorians’ and ‘Evolution’. The children have written facts and created games, coins, Anderson shelters and carried out various activities.
Talent for Writing
Children from Year 2 entered work for The Young Writers’ My First Story competition. They were asked to write a story based on five story boards. They used their creativity and imagination. Some of their work has been selected for publication in a Young Writers’ Anthology.
To mark their achievement, they have also been awarded a certificate and a bookmark.
