Join the Panthers and Snow Leopards on their learning journey…

Amazing Artists

We really enjoyed our cross-curricular Science and Art Learning today.  We chose an animal to draw through observation.

Design Technology…

Look at our moving pictures!

Fun in the Sun…

…at Leeds Castle!

What a great day exploring the castle, its grounds and the play park with our friends.

Talk for Writing Independent Application

We came up with as many titles for our independent Instructional Text writing as we could think of.  Which one will you write?

Habitats For Sale!

Today we were estate agents and we created habitats for each of our ‘For Sale’ signs.  We thought about what we might find in each habitat and the food and shelter that they provide.

Look at our creations!

Last week marked our 3rd Geography Enrichment of the academic year. Themed around the concept of looking after our environment and the shared responsibilities we all hold, Sandgate Primary School was ‘Lunging for Litter’ in order to do our part for the planet!

As well as Geocaching with other year groups (a fantastic and exciting way for children to demonstrate their Friendship values), we were lucky to have visiting speakers from ActionAid, Greenpeace and ‘Save the Bees’ throughout the week; each talk discussed a different aspect of doing our part to care for our environment, both locally and globally.

Thank you to all children for their continued enthusiasm to care for our home.

Keep on lunging,

Mr. Goodeal


The Year 2s were very excited and proud to see some of their friends in the Rocksteady concert today.



We are all lunging for litter as part of our aim to clean up our environment!  Well done to those children (and adults!) who have already been spotted lunging!

Weather Forecast…

This morning, as part of our Geography focus, we looked at the weather forecast for the week ahead.  It’s set to be beautifully sunny and hot this week so don’t forget to drink plenty of water, apply suncream in the morning before school, wear a sunhat/cap and find some shade during playtime!

Revolting Recipes…


Today we started to create our class innovations for Instructional Text writing.  The Snow Leopards are writing instructions for their own Revolting Rascally Cake and The Panthers are creating the perfect Rancid Risotto recipe!

We then practised orally telling our new Instructional Text using our text map!
