Year 5 Open Evening
On Wednesday, 25 May, Invicta held their popular Year 5 Open Evening. The event was extremely well attended, with around 130 excited Year 5 students and their parents visiting the school.
The evening commenced with a talk from Mrs Derrick, Headteacher, who offered invaluable information regarding the Kent Test process and what Invicta can offer to potential students. The talk also included presentations by Year 7 students Patricia Britto and Tierney Haynes, who shared their experiences of transitioning from primary to secondary school. Both girls spoke with such confidence and clarity – the audience were very impressed by them! The second part of the evening involved the Year 5 students and their parents having the opportunity to experience a lesson at Invicta. There were a range of lessons on offer, including Science, Textiles, Drama and Food Technology. A particular highlight was Mr Heaton’s Music lesson, where he had both the students and their parents singing in ‘cowboy’ style voices with accompanying dance moves!
Overall, the evening was enjoyed by all, and the feedback received from the prospective students and their parents has been extremely positive. Mrs Derrick and Mrs Stafford would like to thank everyone that was involved in the organisation and delivery of the event, and are now looking forward to the Year 5 Taster Morning on Saturday, 25 June, where the Year 5 students will be invited back to Invicta to experience more lessons.
