I think the children all looked splendid today and I am grateful to you for kindly ensuring that they were all in character and enjoying the day. The excitement and 'buzz' around school has been wonderful to observe.
Houses of Parliament
The rather cold weather didn't interfere with a long anticipated visit to the Houses of Parliament. It was understandably quiet in London on Thursday and we had a relatively straightforward journey into London, through the inspiring Skyfall-esque/Bond style set of Westminster Underground Station, past the statue of Winston Churchill and then on to the Parliament Education Centre.
Having had the opportunity to join many trips over the years I think both Mr Stevenson and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip as much as the children and will long remember this particular adventure. Having the opportunity to observe a debate in the House of Lords and then House of Commons was quite special.
A very memorable trip to see democracy in action.
Year 1 -
Year 1 have had an interesting week in the snow.
We focussed on our Maths skills, finding fractions, and working out halves. World Book Day was wonderful with the unusual sight of Iron Man working with BookCreator to write a character profile.
I was very impressed with the vocabulary and language used to describe their character and which books they enjoy reading.
Well what a cold and exciting week Reception have had. We started the week looking at our baby pictures and talking about how we have changed over time. “I have got taller and my hair has grown” - Elena
We then compared baby pictures with each other and spoke about how we all look different.
We had a very exciting trip to Holly Lodge to learn all about the Victorians. We got to play with some of the old toys and all decided that we prefer the toys we had now! When tried out the black board s and using the flint to write and draw on them. We ended our trip in the Victorian pharmacy where we got to use old pill making machines to create our own pills with play dough. All the children had an amazing time and it was beautiful to see Richmond Park covered in snow.

We are in the process of developing a new website. We are hoping to reveal our new site in February 2018.
The grid calendar is back up and running, although we are still trying to publish 2018-2019 term dates and remove the 2016-2017, however they are in the grid calendar.
Please help us maintain the very best relationships with our neighbours by not blocking or parking in their drives when dropping off or collecting your children.
Please do not park on the yellow chevrons directly in front of the school or across driveways for the safety of all of our children.
Could I ask that you ensure that waterproof trousers, Wellington boots and coats are brought into school on the relevant day (regardless of the forecast) so that we maximise our use of Richmond Park.
