Class Assembly

As many of you witnessed we created an epic assembly on Henry VIII and the Tudors. Here is a selection of photos. (There is also a rather good video. Please ask if you would like to see it.)

Static Electricity

In science this term we have been learning about electricity. One of the most fun lessons was on static electricity. Here we are experimenting with it.

At the start of our Macbeth Power of Reading topic we were lu cky enough to be able to watch a performance by the Young Shakespeare company. We were able to get involved and it really helped our understanding of the play.

As much of the time as possible Maths is incorporated into real life scenarios. Here the children are spending some of the Otter class budget!

Old Palace School visit

Old Palace School is situated in central London and their children have very different surroundings to us. It is great for the children to chat about the similarities and differences in their ways of life.

This term we have been learning about the heart. We ended the topic with an investigation about pulse rates and then a real heart dissection. (Be aware there are some quite bloody photos.)

Roald Dahl day

On the 13th September the whole school dressed up to commemorate the 100th birthday of Roald Dahl. We had a fantastic (Mr Fox!) range of characters. Including Matildas, Oompa Loompas and Mr Twits.

Shelter building

We were lucky enough to be able to visit the Himalayan gardens in Riverhill to build shelters. Despite the weather we had a brilliant day building shelters and exploring. All of the groups were able to learn from their mistakes and build as a team which bodes well for the rest of the year.
