Over this academic year the children from Chestnut have been ‘linking’ with a class of Year 5 children in Dartford Primary Academy, thanks to the hard work of our Mrs Bransgrove and Miss Morrison from Dartford.
When the children visited Dartford in June the children were literally ‘joined together’ in an exciting range of ‘fun’ activities.
‘We arrived at DPA and met up with the friends we made on our first visit. We started with ‘heads down, thumbs up’ a popular game played in both schools! We mixed into pairs and drew our own faces which we stuck together…..We matched with children who had ‘similar things’, linking with a continually unravelling ball of string….At the end it looked like a complex cobweb. We had an amazing breaktime…In pairs we created videos about our similarities and differences….. Unfortunately we had to leave; this was one of the BEST YEAR 5 DAYS EVER!‘
(Callum, Year 5)
They can’t wait until Dartford pay a return visit to us in the next couple of weeks! The outdoor classroom and IPads are booked and you never know, s’mores could be on the menu!
