Year 5 Stick Insects
"We have the stick insects in our class because we are learning about life cycles. We will be able to see the stick insects hatch from their eggs then grow and transform into adults. Stick insect eggs take 3/4 months to hatch and ours will be hatching in about a week. We won’t be able to tell which are males and females yet until they are adults, females are much fatter than males and they also can’t fly as well as the male insects. Females also live longer too, they live for about a year and the males will only live for around 3 months."

Year 6 Bikeability Training
"I really enjoyed Bikeability. Learning about how to keep safe during cycling on the road. The teachers, Claire and Mikael, were very helpful during tricky situations and boosted our confidence on the road and our riding in general. We felt very fortunate to have two very nice people/experts in their own area, to guide us through the course."

The Dodgeball competition was really fun! First we had to play friendly matches and then we played the proper matches against the other schools. We came second in the competition but it was really close between us and the first place team. We showed great teamwork and are really proud of ourselves!

Year 5 Trip - Matilda the Musical
"Our trip to see Matilda was really good! She is only young but is so clever! What I learnt from this story is not to blame things on others, like Miss Truchbull does on Matilda."

"I really enjoyed Book Week because I really enjoy reading. My favourite part was when the author came to our class and helped us to create our own characters for a story. It was also really fun to dress up on world Book Day - I came as Harry Potter."

The Daily Mile
"When we started 'The Daily Mile' at the beginning of this week I was getting worn out easily and found it hard to do the mile in the 15 minutes. Since then it has gotten easier and I can keep running for longer than before. I am able to do the mile now and even further! It is really fun and you get to spend time with your friends."

Year 4 Equality and Diversity Seminar @ Charlton Athletic
“There were four schools at the seminar and we all had to meet and get to know each other. At first we were a bit nervous and shy. The three ladies there spoke to us about equality and diversity and we all played games together with the other schools. We played one where we had to look at pictures of people and guess who they are and what they do. This game taught us not to judge people by their appearance. We also got to meet some past and present footballers and ask them questions. They spoke to us about working hard and always trying your best. After the seminar we got to have a tour of the stadium which was really fun! We got to visit the home and away dressing rooms and dugouts, meet the Charlton mascots and go on the pitch. We all had a great day.”
