Year 6 Prom Night!
Last night the red carpet was laid out as limos arrived for our glamorous Y6’s.
The children were ‘papped’ in their amazing outfits (dressed to impress) at Twydall’s hottest venue.
The school was decked out in black, red and gold with a buffet and disco.
Music pumped, thanks to Mr Purser, and the dance moves put strictly to shame.
Billy was crowned King and Caitlyn crowned Queen of the prom.
The night went amazingly well and we wish them all the best for the future.
It was an absolute pleasure to be invited to the Year 7 ‘tea and chat’ with our previous Year 6 children at Rainham Mark Grammar School. Seeing our ex-pupils looking so grown up, confident and self-assured was a proud teacher moment.
We caught up on what they have been doing over the year, and recalled many wonderful and funny moments from our year together. When I asked the question ‘What would you tell your Year 6 self about Secondary School?’ answers ranged from: Do your homework when you get it, you will make new friends, it’s okay to get lost in the first week, the teachers are not scary, it will all seen normal after the first fortnight and taking the bus was easy. What excellent advice for the future Year 7 at Twydall Primary!
We wish them all the best for their next year and look forward to seeing the present Year 6 achieving the same successes.

Last week, the football team that represented the school at MYG (and finished 15th out of 56 schools!) were lucky enough to meet Sir Geoff Hurst at another football tournament – commemorating 50 years since that historic day in ’66!
Sir Geoff was the guest of honor on the day as he officially opened the new facilities at Strood Leisure Centre. The team were extremely excited to meet him (although not as excited as Mr Purser and indeed most of the parents in attendance!)
As for the tournament, the team played well in all their games (coming up against much older competition from the other schools) – finishing 8th in the Plate competition!
Well done to the whole team who represented our school so well!
Below are some photos from the day, we hope you like them!
Year 6 really enjoyed their trip to Chatham Dockyard on Monday 11th July. We saw many things and learnt about the Wooden Walls.
We were also able to go on HMS Cavalier and learn of the conditions aboard. We would like to thank Chatham Dockyard for a wonderful trip.

Several pupils received the Anti-Bullying Ambassador training from RMGS pupils. They learnt many techniques and have greatly benefited from the training. A big thank you to the RMGS pupils who came along to train the pupils. We wish them luck in their new role.
What a performance! The Year 6 team are so proud of the dedication to learning songs, lines, and dance routines that all Year 6 children showed.
Special mentions are for:
Ben Wood who overcame his shyness to bring us a performance well rehearsed. If only we knew he had this stage presence at the beginning of the year!
Kian Abrahall for stepping into Ben’s shoes’ when Ben was ill for the performance to the school. You had remembered Ben’s lines so well.
Prop team: Moses, Quinn, Maisie S, Haydn H, Daisy & Danny – those props added the imagery we needed. Those scene changes were well executed too.
Holly for her amazing sound. You were on cue!
The players: You were all so amazing at learning lines and creating the characters in your own way.
We are sure your family and friends are as proud of you as we are at Twydall.
You put on a performance to remember!

Elm class visited RMGS for a science taster day. We got to do experiments and learn about new things. We would like to thank the RMGS teachers and students for a fabulous morning, which we enjoyed very much.

Hawthorn Class visited RMGS for a Science taster day, we all had a fantastic time and would especially like to thank the Year 12 Students and RMGS teacher who were there to support us. Here a few pictures of our morning at RMGS. Please enjoy looking at them as much as we enjoyed the day.
Today we had Fisheries and Conservation officers in to visit Year 1.
They were teaching us about our local area and how we need to conserve and protect the River Medway and the fish in it.
We got to watch a video under the waters of the River Medway, look at the different fish that live in the River Medway and name them. Finally we got to decorate a wooden fish which will be displayed at the River Festival in Chatham on 9th July.
Please head along to the River Festival to try and find your fish!
