In this week’s KM Medway Messenger our Reception, Year 1 and 2 classes have created portraits of their mums. It is in newsagents now!

What an exciting Science week we had here at Saxon Way!
Using our GAF theme of ’Changemakers’, each year group developed a project that focused on a change within our school community and created a presentation demonstrating their learning.

🌟 Reception created their own walking water experiments and created rainbows.
🌟 Year 1 improved their outside area and thought about the environment that would be most inviting for our Bee community.
🌟 Year 2 learnt about the life cycle of Bees and minibeasts and investigated which we have within our school site.
🌟 Year 3 investigated the flowers that are most liked by Bees and planted them in our outside areas.
🌟 Year 4 created minibeast mansions to entice other insects and wildlife into our school grounds.
🌟 Year 5 investigated the migration of birds and communicate with other schools to compare bird migration data. Year 5 also looked at how e can reduce, reuse and recycle items in school and use them for Art.
🌟 Year 6 investigated the use of tracking equipment to track animal movement and created their own tracking system within school.
We have been approached by a few parents asking if we can do something to support the crisis in Ukraine. On this Monday 14th March we are asking for children to wear blue & yellow in support.

Please could children bring in a £1 donation in support of the refugees and pass it on to their teachers.

Thank your for your support.
Dear Saxon Way Families

With the recent release of FIFA 23, we thought it would be useful to share this guide with our families.

FIFA 23, like its many predecessors, is a massively popular football simulator featuring lifelike recreations of thousands of real-world players, drawn from teams around the globe. While the gameplay is subtly improved year on year, the publisher EA’s focus remains firmly on FIFA Ultimate Team – a mode in the game that can tempt players of all ages to spend actual money on recruiting better players for their side. With each new release of FIFA comes a host of new players to unlock – meaning that youngsters can feel pressured to keep buying to compete with their friends.

In the guide, you'll find tips on a number of potential risks such as age-inappropriate chat, scammers and addiction.

Be on the ball with FIFA ⚽🎮 Does the ever-popular football simulation keep a clean sheet of risks in its latest appearance? This week’s guide has our essential scouting report on FIFA 23 📓👀

This year we are holding a special harvest school assembly. We have not asked for harvest donations as it is such a tricky time of year in the current climate for so many of our school community.

However to celebrate the autumn season, and national poetry day, we are holding a harvest poetry competition! Details can be seen below and have been posted on google classroom. The entries can be posted on google classroom or written on paper and brought into class. We look forward to reading them all and sharing the winning entries during our school assembly.


Dear Saxon Way families,
It has been confirmed that Monday 19 September, the date of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral, will be a national bank holiday.

All schools will be closed on this day to allow communities to pay their respects to Her Majesty and commemorate Her reign, while marking the final day of the period of national mourning.

Saxon Way Primary School will be closed to all pupils on 19 September and will re-open on Tuesday 20 September.


We are saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and our thoughts are with her family during this time. Our family of schools will be marking her loyal service over the coming weeks as we enter a national period of mourning. Queen Elizabeth II was a much loved and respected sovereign who reigned for 70 years, longer than any other monarch in British history. She has been a constant in everyone’s lives and her service will not be forgotten.


Today, we remember our beloved Queen Elizabeth. The longest reigning monarch in our history and a truly inspirational figurehead for our country and the commonwealth.
We understand some pupils may have questions and we will answer them as best we can and support them through this period in history.
We are thinking of our families and the emotions that may be stirred when we have difficult times of loss.
Please let us know if you need support and we will be there for you all.



Dear Saxon Way families,

We look forward to welcoming the children back to school tomorrow!
Please see the image below, a map of the school which shows where to pick the children up from their classrooms at the end of the day.
Years R-2 should be picked up at 3.10.
Years 3-6 should be picked up at 3.15.

If you are unsure of anything please contact the school office.

We look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

⭐️🇬🇧🎭 GAF 2022 -LONDON DAY 3 🎭🇬🇧⭐️

Pupils travelled to Shakespeare's Globe and across the millennium bridge where we saw art left by an artist who uses old chewing gum to paint pictures.
At the globe, the children had a talk about the globe, the plays and the building. They watched a one man play and took part in a drama workshop!
They then moved onto Haywards gallery to look at 'In the Black fantastic' exhibition.
Finally they had dressed in their finery and had a beautiful night at the proms hosted at patchwork. We’re sure they are having such a wonderful time that they may not be ready to come home today!
