Mad About Minibeasts
Our Mad about Minibeast Day was such a success. The children and teachers had so much fun painting bug houses, making bird food and creating bee mobiles. We hope the bugs like their new home and the bird ate well last night. It was so lovely to see all the children so excited to get their face painted. They all looked amazing!
Little Red Riding Hood
This week in Upper Foundation we have been focusing on the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We have been discussing the setting of the story and the features of a forest/woods. Upper Foundation all had a fantastic adventure to Belair Park on Wednesday afternoon. The children all enjoyed acting out the story along the hidden forest. Many thought they saw the wolf’s footprints. It was a great time to discuss wildlife, observe flowers and practise our time-telling skills with a thrilling game of ‘What’s the time Mr. Wolf?’.
Fun in the Sun!
The sun is shining and the year one children have enjoyed lots of energetic, imaginative outdoor play. They’ve delighted in exploring nature, riding their bikes in the sunshine, climbing and role playing on our boat and aeroplane!
Year 4's Trip to Hampton Court
Last Friday, Year 4 visited Hampton Court as part of their topic: The Tudors.
The Houses of Parliament
On Monday afternoon, they visited the Houses of Parliament and were able to see both the House of Lords and the House of Commons in action. The Lords were discussing Torture overseas and the Commons were debating the rehabilitation of offenders. All serious stuff! We walked through the lobbies and saw the famous statues of Sir Winston Churchill and William Gladstone (with his missing finger) and also saw where Charles I was tried and sentenced to death.
Next, in two groups, we had workshops on how laws were made. Each group thought of suggests for new laws and then debated one of them before voting on whether to pass it. One group debated banning cigarettes and the other banning diesel cars.
We travelled both ways by no.3 bus and amazingly, all 55 of us got on the same bus both ways!
On Tuesday afternoon, a group of Year 6 children went to volunteer at the West Norwood Foodbank. They had to date, order and pack various items of food including tins of meat, baked beans, evaporated milk, bags of pasta, packets of biscuits and loads and loads of toothbrushes! The children were fantastic and worked really hard.
