Year 1 Trip to LEGOLAND

Year 1 had a brilliant time at LEGOLAND on Tuesday as part of their topic on toys. The children explored famous landmarks in Miniland, watched a puppet show (Goldilocks and the Three Bears) and rode a train through the park. There was also time for a ‘castle construction’ workshop, in which they learnt how to make LEGO castles fit for a dragon and strong enough not to get blown down! It was an exciting, action-packed day!

An Afternoon of Art with Year 1

Year 1 children enjoyed having their parents in school to help them with their art activities. Together, everyone used a range of materials such as tissue paper, sequins, pom poms and feathers to create colourful wings that they then joined together to make a rainbow-coloured butterfly. Individually, they lay down between the wings to become the body of the butterfly! This was great fun for the children, and their parents also enjoyed having a go! A big thank you to the Year 1 parents for their continued support. 

A Fun Afternoon of Board Games in 2F

On Tuesday afternoon, parents and carers of 2F children were invited to come and play some exciting board games. The competition was high and the buzz in the room was palpable as children and adults alike relished in some well-known games. There were the usual suspects, such as Monopoly and Guess Who, along with the funniest charades Miss Fisher has ever seen! A wonderful afternoon was had by all – thank you to everyone who came.

House! An Afternoon of Bingo with Year 3

Year 3 enjoyed a spectacular afternoon of Bingo games this week. They were joined by their parents and competed against each other to win a selection of prizes. Excited shouts of ‘Bingo!’ could be heard throughout the school, whilst Mr Baker put on his Bingo hat and took great delight in calling out the numbers. Thank you to all the parents who attended. It was a very special afternoon.

Reflections and Translations with Year 6
Year 6 children took part in a challenging but fun investigation that tested and reinforced their knowledge of reflections and translations. Over the coming weeks, we will be finding fun ways to revisit and reinforce all key knowledge in preparation for the forthcoming exams. Go, Year 6, go!
Comprehension and Inference in Year 3

3H children enjoyed putting their inference skills to the test during Wednesday’s weekly comprehension lesson. They eagerly worked together in pairs to investigate a detailed picture, discussing and then answering a variety of questions.

 

Spelling Games in Year 5

Children in Year 5 had lots of fun this morning, as they sorted and played an Articulate-style game with this week’s spellings.

Cello Concert
Year 3 children were given a musical treat on Monday when Ms Vidgeon gave a short concert to both classes. As well as listening to some well-known tunes, the enthusiastic audience learnt facts about the instrument and were given the opportunity to ask questions.
Ms Vidgeon currently has some availability, so if any parents are interested in arranging cello lessons for their child, please contact Mr Baker via the school office.

Year 5 Dulwich College Football Tournament

In the beautiful surroundings of Dulwich College, the Year 5 football team showed real improvement in both their timing of the tackle and shape of the team as they fought valiantly against some strong schools from across South West London. The team won two matches (1-0, 1-0), drew two (0-0, 1-1) and lost two (0-1, 0-1). Well done, boys. A great effort!

Harvest Festival

At this time of year we come together as a school to be thankful for all we have and use it as an opportunity to help those in need. We ask that the children bring in items to help those at the ‘Ace of Clubs’ in Clapham. This is an organisation that helps the homeless and other disadvantaged people in the community. They are always extremely grateful for any donations and have requested various goods; not all of them are harvest items, but are needed all the same! Our Harvest Festival assembly will be on 18 October (the day before the half-term holiday). On arrival at school that morning, we ask that children take any items they have brought with them straight into the hall. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
