Year 6

Yesterday, after the fun at the Panto, Year 6 headed to Woodlands Park for some organised games and free time.  

Today, Year 6 had a PJ, Pizza Making and Movie day!! Using kits from a local pizza restaurant, we have made a fantastic variety of margherita pizzas which all came out perfectly.

Gravesend 4 Square Competition

Yesterday, a group of 11 Year 5 and 6 children attended a 4 square competition for schools outside of the TPAT Trust. Upon arrival, the children were required to learn a new one off variation of the 4 square game, which had similar links to tennis. They worked diligently in their teams to learn the game rules and, after a shaky first round, found their stride moving forwards. Henrik received a special mention at the end of the competition for being most improved from the Wrotham teams and Taris was selected alongside one Culverstone child as the referees' players of the day. 


1: Wrotham 1
2: Culverstone (blue team)
4: Culverstone (orange)
5: Wrotham 2

It is a delight to announce that the Wrotham 1 team has now been invited to the 4 square finals next Tuesday, to compete for overall winners and the title of European primary champions. We will be competing against Copperfield, Culverstone and Timberwood.

The children have done an amazing job. Go team Wrotham!

Year 2- IPC

Today Year 2 started to investigate whether a plant needs water to grow or can we use any liquid? Children were putting water in one plant, milk in another and coke in another plant. The children have been investigating germination of seeds and recording their observations into their bean diary too.

Greenwich Trip Year 5

Wow! Year 5 have had an amazing time in Greenwich today. We learnt about the meridian line and Greenwich's most famous astronomers. We had an interactive lesson in a Planetarium. What an experience for them all. Did you know that there are over 200 moons in our solar system?

Curly's Farm

We fed and watered a variety of animals today. Collected eggs from the chickens. Watched pigs being injected and learnt about why they were receiving treatment. At the end of the day we were aloud to take home some fresh eggs from the farm too!

We got to hold and learn about the chicks that were 5 days old.
