Take One 'Island' Day

Many thanks to Ms Rees for organising today's 'Take One Island' activities. Our children spent the day learning about a historical or geographical aspect of the Isle of Thanet.


Reception created a map of their outside area using a range of materials.

Year 1 learnt about the Roman settlement that the school is built upon and created their own Roman towns.
Year 2 visited Dane Park to compare it to what it was like in the past.
Year 3 visited the windmill to see how flour was made.
Year 4 visited the Tudor House and Margate Museum.
Year 5 investigated the life of the Margate Giant, 'Richard Joy' and visited St Peters Church.
Year 6 learnt about the war time shelter under the school.


The children had lots of fun. You can see much of the work they completed in their class pages.
