Harry S (Blackbirds Class) took part in 'The Great Indoors Hike to the Moon', raising money for Children in Need and Comic Relief.  Scouts set themselves the incredible challenge of hiking the 240,000 miles to the Moon.  Each Scout was asked to walk one mile. 
Harry measured out a track in the garden and worked out that he would need to complete 87 and a half laps to walk a mile!  He chose to run and he enjoyed it so much, he did it twice!!
Harry set himself a target to raise £40 and completely smashed this, raising a fantastic total of £135. 


Well done Harry, we are all really proud of you , what a fantastic achievement!!





One of our amazing pupils, Ellie T, has been busy raising money for charity whilst we are all in lockdown.  She painted these beautiful rainbow pebbles and sold them for donations to charity.  She has even been featured on BBC news celebrating her amazing achievement.  Ellie's mum told me that she has now raised over £170 for the NHS.  Well done Ellie we are so proud of you!  smiley



Since word has got around about Ellie's amazing fundraising, she has now had an exciting  visit from the East Kent Guiding District Commissioner, who presented her with a special certificate, a Brownie's Well Done badge and. Commissioner's Thank you badge for her rainbow pebble fundraising efforts! 

One of our fantastic children in YR has built this absolutely amazing dragon all by himself. Well done Elliott B, what a fantastic achievement!! 



On Tuesday 7th May,  Lady J sent Amal, Ella, Tom B and Adam to Ashford School for the Y5 Schools Maths Competition. Our brilliant team added, subtracted and multiplied their way through the rounds.....and WON!   They beat 24 other schools who were also competing, and took home the winning shield for the school.  Huge congratulations to them all for such an amazing and well deserved victory, we are all very proud of you at Lady J!





Dear parents and carers,
As I am sure you are all aware we are only 3 weeks away from the return of one of our most exciting events. Since the last International Evening in October 2016 we have received feedback from across our community and we are sure that this year’s events will be a wonderful celebration of the diverse constituents of the Lady Joanna family.
Throughout the week we would like to host a range of events with an international theme. In order to fully embrace what will no doubt be an exciting and informative week, the afternoons during the week beginning February 4th will be dedicated solely to international themes/events. It would be fantastic if parents, carers, staff or children with a link to a certain country could undertake an activity in class with either their own children or across the school. For example, Doris Kwarteng (one of our fantastic Teaching Assistants, who is of Ghanian descent) is going to show traditional clothing of the Ashanti and Northern regions of Ghana, talk about the drums in the music room and their use for music and communication…and even a bit of dancing! Other parents and carers have suggested a range of practical workshops they could complete with children including cooking, art and poetry.
During International Evening itself (Friday 8th February, 6pm – 8pm) attendees will be invited to walk around the school at their leisure. This will give everybody a fantastic opportunity to celebrate what the children have learnt during the course of the week. The school hall will also be a key part of the event with the Junior Choir (Main Hall, 6:30pm) performing and the interactive whiteboard showing a rolling presentation about our Rights Respecting School initiative. Members of the Junior Choir will receive a letter from Mrs Nicholls next week.
All of this exciting news has so far failed to include one key element – food! It has always been an international evening tradition to give everyone in attendance the chance to taste delicious cuisine from all over the world. If you are willing to cook a dish to contribute to the ‘Best Takeaway in Ashford’ then please complete the online form below!


All contributions are hugely appreciated! Please note that you do not have to have a link to a particular country in order to cook a dish associated with it.
*Food can be brought in from 5pm on Friday 8th February. It must be 100% ready to eat (no cooking can be done on-site) and totally free from nuts.


Please let us know in your response how you can help make International week (4th-8th February ) or International Evening on Friday 8th a success. Do you have a link to a certain country? Could you undertake a class activity during International Week, or perhaps you could cook a dish from a certain country for International Evening (you don't need to have a link to a country to cook a dish associated - all contributions welcome!!) Please include your child's name and class in your reply Many thanks


Our talented team of year 6 mathematicians are the proud winners of the Regional Maths Problem Solvng championships. Having progressed from round 1 in November, the team have now gone on to win round 2, which took place at Explore Learning last week. If you get a chance, have a look at the questions they faced and see how well you would do!


Well done to the children who took part, Izzy B, Alex G, Jacob S and Sebastian G.


 Our very own Kitty K, budding journalist and all round super star, has had an article published in First News. Wow Kitty! What a great achievement! We'll be watching this space for further fantastic reports from you!
