On Thursday five of our pupils attended the Hackathon, which is an event designed to unlock the potential of children and young people  -  challenging them to come up with ways to improve health, wellbeing and the ability to engage with learning within their school communities.
We are delighted to let you all know that our wonderful pupils won their category with their fantastic presentation, which they have called ‘Active-Inclusive’.  This will be a lunchtime programme to help our children experience exciting sports, get engaged in physical activity as a whole school community and build resilience   -  mixing physical wellbeing with mental health.   
Our amazing lady Joanna pupils won £1,000 to spend on turning their ideas into reality. We are so proud of you all for your amazing achievement and can’t wait to see how the money is spent.  Please do click on the link below to see the winning presentation.

CardBoard Orchestra Proms 10th June 2022

The children from the Art Club were given a fantastic opportunity to take part in the Cardboard Orchestra Proms organised by Revelation Art in association with Animate Arts Company.  Nicki and Dexter from Revelation Art came to the school to teach us about the different parts of an orchestra and how each instrument would be played.  We spent a fantastic day building our instruments out of cardboard to make them look as realistic as possible.  Once we had our instruments we then had to practise playing them as an orchestra, listening intently to the music to hear when our instruments came into the piece of music and also watching the conductor to see when to come in and then stop playing.  

It was then performance day!  We took the coach to Ashford for our final rehearsal in St Mary the Virgin church, the Revelation Art's base.  There were three other schools who were also taking part in the Proms.  We performed four times in Ashford town centre band stand to the general public.

All the children were amazing! They performed like absolute professionals listening to the music and the conductor, giving fantastic performances on each occasion.  

Well done everyone involved.  You have made the whole Lady J community very proud!
