  • We are looking forward to welcoming back our Year 6 pupils who have been on a three-day camping expedition to Penshurst Place in Kent. Run by @thebushcraftcompany, the adventure included the chance to sleep in Bell Tents, whittle their own tent pegs, take part in camouflage and concealment exercises, learn about first aid techniques in the wilderness and, of course, make special memories with friends while eating plenty of s'mores! During the trip they cooked all their meals over an open fire (channelling Swedish open-fire chef Niklas Ekstedt ) with some delicious results! Despite some very wet weather the children showed a great attitude and impressed the teachers with their teamwork, resilience and energy! Well done, Year 6 and a big "thank you" to the Bushcraft leaders and our amazing staff who supported them. #bushcraft #adventure #Year6camp #penshurstplace #friendship #teamwork

  • Nursery and Reception pupils enjoyed a super visit this morning from author Vese Aghoghovbia who came to do a reading of her @phillynfriends book: "Who Do I See in the Mirror?" The children loved hearing the story of a girl called Philly who looks in the mirror and appreciates each of her unique features before concluding that it's what's on the inside that counts far more than physical appearances. Vese brought along a mirror so that the children could give themselves a smile and make a positive affirmation: "I love me!" She reminded the pupils that each one of them is unique and beautiful - and that being different makes the world a much more interesting place! Philly & Friends is Vese's lifestyle and toy brand that was inspired by her daughter and "born out of a desire to see children grow up to see beauty in themselves and others, to believe they can be anything they want to be." She specifically wanted to "create a black children's character that kids everywhere could love and identify with." Prior to her daughter's birth she had found few quality children's books that featured a black or minority ethnic main character. At Heath Mount, we recently invested in a bumper selection of books for our libraries that celebrate diversity and difference and aim to allow every child to see themselves represented and reflected in the stories and non-fiction that they read. The books also give them a window onto other cultures and religions worldwide. Thank you, Vese, for such a fun and uplifting morning! We're sure your book will be a very popular addition in the EYFS story corner! #authorvisit #phillyandfriends #diversity #celebratingdifference #childrensbooks #EYFS #education #SMSC #schoollibrary

  • Year 4 enjoyed a sunny day out at Rye Meads by the River Lee yesterday. The children had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful wetland reserve where they went pond dipping and bird spotting. It was the perfect opportunity to bring their understanding of habitats and the classification of living things to life! #nature #naturereserve #prepschool #bringinglearningtolife @rspbengland
