Wow, what an action packed few Fridays year 4 have had! The children have loved attending forest school at the Priory with specialist teachers linking learning to our history topic of the Bronze Age. We made 'Bronze Age Bread', clay pots inspired by those found at the Shinewater Bronze Age settlement, jewellery and cave paintings. It was a pleasure to see the children get stuck in making dens, creating fire and spear throwing. Year 4 teachers are super proud as both our fores
Funky Friday is still a LIVE show from our very own recording studio (the main hall) that is wired in to the classrooms and offices around the school site. Prizes and certificates are presented in classrooms but EVERYONE around the school shows their happiness and appreciation for their peers with cheers, whoops and clapping.

So far this has got some pleasing feedback, with parents saying it is helping to combat that dreaded shrug when they ask their children "What did you learn at school today?" We have even had some parents saying

During lockdown, Year 6 were set the mammoth challenge of attempting a completely new style of writing- expository essays. The children had to take one point of view and use their research to convince the readers why they were correct. We chose to write about an issue that is very close to all of our hearts at Langney Primary Academy: the importance of exercise. The children were treated to a video from Mr Field in which he shared some expert advice and then they set about fi
During British Science week small groups of children in years 4 - 6 worked on an exciting project focused on innovative approaches to growing plants, with the aim of showing that science and technology is relevant in all of our lives and accessible to all. Using a British Science Association grant we purchased some hydroponics kits and the children learnt about how this system can potentially allow us to grow fruit and vegetables in smaller spaces, indoors and even all year r
