We had a fabulous day celebrating World Book Day 2020. This year we challenged the children in our school to create book characters out of potatoes! We also shared stories between KS2 and KS1 and the older children read to the younger children. At the end of the day we welcomed parents in to share stories with their children.

We had an amazing time building bridges. Thank you Hadlow School.
YEAR 4 BUILDING BRIDGES WITH HADLOW COLLEGE
On Friday afternoon Year 4 were visited by a group of Year 9 Science Ambassadors from Hadlow School. We learnt all about the different types of bridges and why certain bridges are stronger than others. The Science Ambassadors set us a competition to build the strongest bridge. We had to make sure that it was a fair test by only using art straws and sellotape. We worked in groups of three to build our bridges. Once they were built we tested the bridges by positioning them between two tables and placing 100g masses onto them until they collapsed.
East Farleigh sing at The Mall for West Kent Befriending Service
"The school must be commended for not only the beautiful singing... but also for just how well behaved all the children were. They were an absolute delight and you must be extremely proud of them all.
The singing was simply beautiful, many people commented how much they enjoyed it and we look forward to you being part of our Singalong next Christmas."

East Farleigh's love of reading brings happiness to the residents of Ashley Gardens.
Some of our wonderful pupils went into Ashley Gardens Residential Home in Maidstone last Saturday with a few of their favourite books. They all did amazingly well, reading confidently and interacting positively with the residents. We are so impressed with their efforts, raising over £300 for our dictionary fund. A huge thank you and big well done to them all.
