Y6, Y1, Y4Year 6 have been designing outfits for Capitol residents in The Hunger Games. First they learned how to draw a human figure in proportion. They then traced their designs of these drawings to make sure the outfits had the right proportions. Finally they painted them using watercolours. The children worked really hard and their art outcomes were fantastic.
At the end of last half term the Early Years and Key Stage One children were treated to an exciting performance of Aladdin! Year One loved watching the show and were excellent audience members. The actors really got the children hooked by singing their favourite, well-known songs, making funny jokes and generally acting silly. They were also very good at getting the children involved, much to their enjoyment!
“My favourite character was Aladdin because he was funny and strong” Bobby, Year 1
“I liked it when the genie was set free by Aladdin because it made me happy” Abigail, Year 1
We had some mysterious footprints in our classroom on Tuesday. We are examining them closely as we would like to know which bird or beast they belong to. They are very big -careful measuring revealed that they are 13 stones long! 2 and a half of our feet fit into one of theirs! We cannot wait to find this creature.
During the last week of term, Year 3 and 4 visited the Hindu Mandir in Plumstead. We wanted to develop our knowledge of Hinduism further and answer any questions we had linked to Hindu worship.
We enjoyed watching a typical morning service in the Mandir and learned about how and why Hindus worship. The children were given a talk by a member of the temple and were well behaved and respectful inside.
“I felt surprised and relaxed inside the Hindu temple.” Celisha, Year 4.
‘I enjoyed drawing sketches inside the Mandir. I drew the Aum symbol and one of the Gods.” Toby, Year 4.

Year 3 French CafeLinked to our French lessons, and as their reward for earning 30 marbles as a class, the children in Year 3 took part in a French afternoon. During the afternoon, the children took part in a great deal of activities which allowed them to find out more about France, as a country, but to also apply some of the conversational French phrases they had been learning during lesson time.
The afternoon began with the children piecing together pictures of famous French buildings. The children then went onto to researching about the Eiffel Tower. The children enjoyed sharing facts which they had learnt about the Eiffel Tower and tried to create quizzes for other children on the table to complete. The last part of the afternoon, and most definitely the most anticipated, was our French café. The children had a go at applying French phrases, which they had learnt during lesson time, to ordering food in a French. It was great to see so many children confidently ordering food and drink in French, from the adults in the class. All the children in Year 3 had a brilliant time and are looking forward to more French lessons this half term.
