Spring into the New Year

Happy New Year 2023 to all of our community. We hope you enjoyed the celebrations over the festive period and are excited about what lies ahead.


Our Spring term sports schedule is as busy as ever. We launch straight into rugby and netball matches, with tournaments throughout the period in Netball, Hockey and Rugby. We have expanded our team fixtures with girls’ football matches and boys’ Hockey matches against other schools Our park runs will be tested at the ISA Cross country regionals at Radnor house.

Whole School

The children will enjoy even more inter-house competitions with maths and general knowledge quizzes live in the gym – Let’s see which House can cheer the loudest! We look forward to nurturing living eggs in school again, and a skipping workshop for the whole school; a great workout and lots of fun. As ever, World Book Day is a favourite at school, with many impressive characters and costumes – stay tuned for the photos!


There is an animal theme in KS1 as Year 1 has a Zoolab workshop and Year 2 are off to Port Lympne Zoo. There are trips throughout the term in all the years, including Year 4 Lullingstone Villa, EYFS Room on the Broom, Year 1 to Bodium Castle, Reception to The British Wildlife Centre and many more.

EYFS continue with their Forest Club outdoor learning experiences twice termly.

Performing Arts

Drama and Music are as crucial as ever, with the KS1 Show at Trinity being the Jungle Book. Year 6 will be performing a show for the ISA Drama Competition and ISA A capella competition (KS2 Choir) in March, which can also be enjoyed at the Trinity theatre. The Easter service will be towards the end of term when we welcome the warmer days and spring flowers! If you can’t wait until then, enjoy an informal music concert for those learning instruments at the end of January.

FOM Events

The children can look forward to the FOM Quiz night, where onesies and PJs are a must. Parents can team up and attend the annual FOM quiz night.

On top of all this, there is the learning, bonds of friendship forming, the moments of joy and memories forged! It certainly is going to be a busy one here at The Mead.
