June 2024 – News from Wateringbury CE Primary School

Learning, growing, achieving…our journey together with God.

What a fabulous spring time we have had at school. Although the weather hasn’t been particularly kind to us, we have certainly made the most of our beautiful school grounds and village that surrounds us. We have been on lots of nature walks to look at the animals that live around us as well as the fantastic geographical features in our village – Foxglove Class were very excited to discover Wateringbury has it’s very own waterfall!

Thanks to a grant from South East Water and the amazing fundraising effort of FOWPS, we have a stunning new wildlife garden in school with a large pond, bug hotels, nesting boxes and a small meadow. The children are patiently waiting for everything to grow and settle before we start exploring it. We are also developing and expanding our forest school/outdoor learning space so that more children can take advantage of the considerable benefits of taking their learning outside. If you have any large outdoor equipment that you want rid of – please think of us! We are always looking for pallets, crates, tyres, large logs and gardening equipment (and volunteers!).

As I write this, our wonderful Year 6 children are sitting their national tests and getting ready for their transition to big, big school. However, there is a lot of learning and many fun experiences to pack in before the end of the year!
