The Mayor of Maidstone Visit - Tuesday 2nd May 2023


We were really lucky to have a visit from the ‘Mayor of Maidstone’ today. He came into our assembly with Councillor Mrs Fay Gooch. He told us all about his job and what he does. Mrs Gooch then explained that our wonderful Barming Parish Council had organised for our children to have a special mug commemorating our new King Charles III's coronation. The Mayor finished by visiting our EYFS and Pre-School children who really liked his shiny gold chain!


We found out facts such as:

  • Maidstone has the oldest Mayor in the county – since 1549!
  • The Mayor has his very own security guard because his chain costs a lot of money!
  • The Mayor attends openings, parties, charity events and helps people celebrate their 100th birthdays.
  • Barming is mentioned in the Doomsday Book!


We had a really lovely afternoon and would like to thank the Mayor and Mrs Fay Gooch for their visit! 

Year 3:

To start our learning off we had a day full of fun and exciting activities, we learnt all about:

  • How and why the Ancient Egyptians used mummification
  • Investigating artefacts
  • Building an Ancient Egyptian city and facing different world events to see which city was the best
  • Playing the games 'Senet' and 'Mankala' 
  • Finishing off by becoming apprentice Egyptian Scribes and learning how to writer our names in hieroglyphics.


We all had an amazing day and learnt so much!
