The class had a brilliant time observing the specimens from all over the world kept at the Grant Museum on Gower Street. The children had fun tracking down the TOP TEN examples on display such as the Tasmanian Tiger and Dodo bird bones!
Today we announced our new House Captains who will lead the four school House teams throughout this year. The children prepared very strong applications and were very determined to take on these prestigious roles.
Well done to Leatisha, Arthur, Abidah, Sharian, Esther, Shorif & Zahrah – you will be great!!
Gillian and Anita from the CLC visited Year 1 today to teach them our topic of ‘We are Treasure Hunters’. They told us about the language of ‘coding’ and how important instructions are. We used Bebots and Blubots and programmed them to move around different obstacle courses! We then used instructions to design our own robots then used Espresso Coding to move different characters around the screen. Fantastic fun and learning!
We have been so lucky to have 4 scientists from the Francis Crick Institute visit us this week and inspire us through different activities and workshops. In Year 1 we were very excited to be wearing real lab coats… check out these awesome photos!
Today we announced the winning House for 2016 – well done to Garrett Anderson!! They also achieved the most points for this term as well, so it was a double celebration today for them.
Well done to the two House Captains for leading such a great House!
We had our annual summer fair on Friday 8th July and it went really well. The weather held out and the fair was well attended. There were so many stalls and lots of the children had their faces painted and had the opportunity to soak some teachers!
Thank you to Miss Lapage-Brown and Miss Jones for the amazing organisational skills and for ensuring that the whole event was so successful. Thank you to the parents who helped out with the stalls and food – much appreciated. We all had a great time.
We had our annual sports day on Thursday 30th June and the whole school from Nursery to Year 6 took part. There were so many events and the children took part with so much energy and enthusiasm. We had everything from sponge throwing, football dribbling to sprint relays. We also held parent races, which saw a sack and a running race take place. Please look out for the videos and photos which will be on the blog very soon.
Thank you to Mr Butt and Miss Vickers for their organisation of yesterday and well done to all the children and their families for joining in so passionately! What a great day. Enjoy the slideshow and videos.
