Welcome Back

There were lots of smiling faces when the children returned to school this week and it was lovely to hear all about their holidays and what they had enjoyed. I hope everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends and I wish you all a very Happy New Year..

We also welcome two Roehampton students to PHS this term – Miss Jayme Garland (working in Year 1B) and Miss Ciara Greed (working in Year 5S).

Year 4S Trip to the V & A Museum

Year 4S had a wonderful day on Tuesday when they visited The Victoria and Albert Museum and enjoyed the multi sensory Winnie the Pooh exhibition. The children took part in a pop-up workshop in which they brought their pictures drawn in the exhibition to life. A huge thank you to Mrs Hawtrey and Mr Ridley for accompanying the children on the trip.

Poetry Competition

All children in Reception to Year 6 have been asked to choose and learn, off by heart, a poem for this year’s poetry competition. There is no theme this year so children are free to choose a poem that they really enjoy.

Four children from each year group who impress their teachers the most with their recitation will be selected for the Poetry Competition finals which will be held on Friday 9 February at the following times:

Lower School at 8.45am – Lower School Hall

Upper School at 2:15pm – Upper School Hall

Good luck everybody!

 
Busy Bees at the Lower School

The children have had a busy first week back and have had lots of fun being introduced to their new topics.

In Nursery, the children are learning about transport, and they have been busy making cars, driving through car washes and flying aeroplanes!

Year 1 are learning about hot and cold climates. This week the children looked at landscaped photographs and used watercolour paints to create Arctic and desert environments.

In Year 2, the children are studying the work of environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy. Inspired by his creations, the children have made their own leaf pictures using oil pastels.

Flat Stanley is on his Travels

The children in Reception will be bringing home their own Flat Stanley today. Flat Stanley has been dressed up ready for his adventure and he has even been put in an envelope ready to be posted off to his host family! We hope Stanley has a safe journey and we look forward to hearing all about his adventures when he returns to school after half term!

On Thursday, the pupils in Year 5 began learning about their new history topic: the Victorians. They were challenged to put the key events from this era into chronological order, discovering lots of new facts along the way. Most importantly, they found out that ice cream was invented by the Victorians!
