Year 5 and 6 finally managed to get away on their school trip, on the second attempt, after the first date was a complete washout!
Monday 28th was a glorious September day with blue sky and sunshine – rather different from the previous week, when the planned day for the trip was one of the wettest of the year!
Year 5 and 6 boarded a double-decker bus and headed south towards Dover and Samphire Hoe. The plan for the day was to discover how plants and animals had adapted to their habitats. There were many children working in a Darwinian way, walking the shore looking for clues and even finding some fabulous fossils. There were also activities planned for testing our skills of observation, touch and smell to answer questions regarding fossils.
Barham CE Primary School is a busy church school where we aim to give each child a good all-round education, Christian values, and a broad experience of life. We are 6 miles south of Canterbury, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We hope you enjoy looking at what we do at our school.

Our last OfSTED inspection was in March 2011.
The OfSTED report stated that we are 'good school', we have 'high standards of behaviour' and commended us on our 'caring family atmosphere'. The report also stated 'children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They enter Year 1 with better than expected levels of attainment. In Years 1 to 6, this good start is fostered well by generally good levels of teaching so that by the time they leave, pupils' attainment is above average and their progress is good.'
No wonder we are so proud of our school!
