Year 2 visited London Zoo to see all the wonderful wildlife. We had a great time seeing many different species of animals including: monkeys, lions, turtles, giraffes and even some snappy alligators. In the amphitheatre, we watched a live show which demonstrated birds of prey in action. We also learnt interesting facts about penguins and also how they are adapted to their environment. Did you know that most penguins live in the Southern Hemisphere?
The Year 4 children enjoyed a performance of ‘Pollution Solution’ this week. Big Wheel Theatre Company visited our school and demonstrated the effects of pollution on our planet in a fun and engaging performance.
The show taught us about three key areas:
- Global warming – how our transport choices affect the world.
- The impact of traffic, air pollution and congestion in our local area.
- Why walking and cycling are almost always the best way to get around and how to do this safely.
Some children commented that they ‘really enjoyed the performance because it showed us how pollution affects the world in a really fun way.’
What a lovely day it was! We travelled to Chalkwell farm on a chartered train. It was a pebbly beach, there was a shallow paddling pool and we dipped our feet inside to keep cool. We splashed around the water all the adults and children were soaked but we had so much fun. Towards the end of the trip we enjoyed a delicious, creamy ice-cream.
Congratulations Year 3 Orange!
Year 3 Orange have been hard at work whilst competing in the Tower Hamlets Sumdog Challenge for the past 2 weeks. We have been consistent in our approach to the competition, ensuring that we keep trying every day and take on a challenge when we feel ready. Thankfully, all of our hard work paid off as we were crowned the Overall Winners (1st Place) last week Friday the 22nd June as well as being named the Daily Winners for Thursday 21st June.
Further congratulations to our Fabulous Five who also won individual Top 10 Player certificates for their incredible Cyber Mathematics. We are so proud of you all!
As part of our work on ‘Pirates’ Nursery planned a trip to West Ruislip Lido. On Tuesday 19th June, Nursery boarded a coach and headed out to West Ruislip Lido for a fun day out on the beach. The children were super excited on route to the Lido and they talked about making amazing sandcastles and eating their delicious packed lunch on the beach.
When we got there we ate our lunch straight away and headed for the steam train ride. Boarding the train at Woody bay, it took took us through the woods heading towards Hodge Hill. We waved at the dogs, squirrels, cats and the people walking past. The children sang Nursery rhymes and took lots of lovely photos of us on the train.
When we returned to the beach, we spent time in the sprinkler area and the pirate ship playground. Everyone loved splashing about in the water and some of us climbed all the way up to the top of the pirate ship and made some of our friends ‘slide down the plank’.
Have a look at some of the things we have been up to!!
The next day, we made posters telling everyone about West Ruislip Lido. Have a read to see what you can find there…
This week Year 5 had their end of year trip to Chalkwell Beach. They have had a wonderful year and have worked very hard so deserved to have some fun in the sun! They got to enjoy splashing in the paddling pool, eating ice creams and getting some much needed Vitamin D. Have a look at some of our fun and funny pictures…
West Ham United took over Osmani! All the children participated in fun physical activities created by West Ham football coaches. They also turned into commentators in the literacy lesson where they wrote and delivered a commentary for a football match.
This week Year 5 were lucky enough to go on a trip to the British Library to take part in a creative writing workshop. We had the opportunity to wander around the magnificently designed building and see books from hundreds of years ago! Did you know that the library contains more than 9 million books? There were books from various religious backgrounds, books about history, politics and the world around us. The workshop was great fun. We walked around the treasures gallery and collected nouns, adjectives, verbs and adverbs from the various books on display. We then used these words to get creative and create our own made up words and then our own collective made up story. Have a look at some of the things we saw…
This half term year 5 have been learning all about space and the solar system. As part of this topic they were given the amazing opportunity to visit the Royal Observatory in Greenwich and watch a Planetarium Show. They were transported into space and learnt fun facts about other planets, the solar system that we are part of and other galaxies in the universe. Have a look at some of our pictures to see how much fun we had!
aste of how much fun we had!
