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

🌟🦁Year 1 visit to wingham wildlife park🦁🌟 Year one had a brilliant day exploring wingham wildlife park. They were particularly fascinated with the meerkats, flamingos and penguins! We worked together to identify which animals we could see and whether they were carnivores, herbivores or omnivores.

Here is just a few pictures from our day!

⭐🐶Visitor from The Dogs Trust🐶⭐

Years 5 and 6 were fortunate enough to have Phil, from The Dogs Trust centre in Canterbury, visiting today to deliver workshops on safety around dogs, and what it takes to be a fantastic dog owner.

They turned their workshops into opportunities to practice maths skills- they created a budget for all the things a dog needs , used their comprehension skills in reading, and completed PSHE tasks about taking responsibility for animals.

The children had a brilliant time, especially with the audience participation. Thank you for visiting us Dogs Trust!


⭐✏Year 6 SATs ✏⭐

Well done to our amazing year 6 children. Each and every child was amazing throughout the week demonstrating resilience, perseverance, and positive attitudes daily. We are extremely proud of them all!


⭐✏Year 6 SATs Week 9-12 May ✏⭐

As we go into SATs week, all the staff at Saxon Way Primary want to wish our Year 6's the very best for the upcoming week. We can't wait to see them tomorrow, and we know they are going to be fantastic!

SATs don't measure sports, SATs don't measure art,
SATs don't measure music, or the kindness in your heart.
SATs don't see your beauty, SATs don't know your worth,
SATs don't see the reasons you were put upon this earth.

SATs don't see your magic, how you make others smile,
SATs don't time how quickly you can run a mile.
SATs don't hear your laughter, or see you've come this far,
SATs are just a tiny glimpse of who you really are.

So sitting at your table, with a pencil and your test,
Remember SATs aren't who you are- remember you're the best!
