Quicksticks Hockey Tournament Tuesday 8th March 2022

On Tuesday 8th March, children from Years 3 and 4 attended the Quicksticks Hockey event at The Ashford School. There was a real
emphasis on taking part and team work for this event and the
Mersham children all worked collaboratively resulting in some great
Mersham played eight matches against eight different schools and the competition was tough! The Mersham children played brilliantly and swapped in and out, taking turns for each match. The final results were 3 wins and 1 draw! An amazing result for the first event of 2022 and a big well done to our Year 3 and 4 team- Codee, Ethan, Millie, Esme, Blake and Olivia H.

Miss Wheeler was so impressed by Mersham’s team spirit and it was lovely to be able to take part.


World Book Day Thursday 3rd March 2022

We had a great day! Thank you to all of our parents and staff for their contributions. We had our costume parade, our book swap, lots of World Book Day activities in class and it was wonderful to have our parents/carers in classes to share books with their children. Here are a few snapshot photographs of the day. 


Damian Green

We were pleased to welcome the Rt Hon Damian Green to the school to present Rebekah in Year 5 with her prize for winning a poster competition organised through a project called Litter Angels. Rebekah’s poster encouraged people to pick up their litter and was part of a wider competition across all Ashford schools. Well done Rebekah!

Damien Green’s visit also gave children in Year 5 and 6 a brilliant opportunity to find out more about how the country is run and what the job of an MP involves. They came up with some fantastic questions and found out how to become an MP, what the job entails as well as getting an insight into some little known facts about Parliament.

Did you know that in the cloakroom, all MPs have a hanger with their name on that also has a pink ribbon attached, which historically was used for hanging up your sword! In addition, Damian Green was happy to answer some more challenging questions from the children about the Downing Street parties! A fantastic learning opportunity for all.
