As part of the 'Pocahontas 400' celebrations, Year 5 were chosen to take part in a parade in Gravesend Town Centre.  A visiting artist came to school to help us make flags that used Native American symbols.  On the day of the parade, we gathered with lots of other local schools and community groups and then paraded through Gravesend ending at the statue of Pocahontas in St George's Church.  It was a very fun afternoon and at the end, our school councillors went with Mrs Shubrook to attend a special church service.  All the children represented the school brilliantly.

We had a lot of fun with a project in DT all about mobile phone cases.  We went through all the stages of the design cycle from Initial ideas, research, planning, making and evaluating.  We learned a lot about different types of stitches (some were easier than others!) and had a great afternoon in the old community hall where parents and family members came to help make the finished cases.  The final results were fantastic!  You can see more pictures and the finished cases in the gallery by clicking here.
