Children in Need

17 Nov 2017

We are all dressed up and ready for Children in Need. We have Star Wars characters and plenty of tutus. We've handed in our sponsorship money for the teachers to complete some amazing tasks. This afternoon we'll be watching Mr Plews get his legs waxed, Miss Ball cut off her hair and Miss Curry in a paddling pool full of beans. We can't wait. 

Let's Create, Let's Perform

02 Nov 2017

Hello,

I hope everyone had a lovely half term break. This term will be busy as we approach Christmas. The first focus for this term is performance which will culminate in our Christmas production on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday December. Details to follow next week. Children will be given their lines next week. Our English focus is poetry and we have already started looking at our poet for the term, Allan Ahlberg. This week the children performed his poem, Please Mrs Butler, in pairs with one of them playing the moaning child and the other playing the fed up teacher. 

Our other focus for the term is D.T and Year 2 will be making Christmas ornaments using Fimo. We've already started to research what we want to make. 

Don't forget that parents evening takes place next week on Wednesday and Thursday. Please sign up online if you haven't already.

Thanks,

Miss Bowerman 

Diversity Week

19 Oct 2017

Hello,

We've had a fantastic week and have been learning about different cultures and countries. We've been visiting different classrooms to find out about Namibia, Mauritius, India and Columbia. We can sing Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes in Spanish, perform a Sega dance, tell you all about the Taj Mahal and show off our beautiful African art work. 

We've also been creating some tropical fruit skewers for the International Food Market this evening. They look delicious! 

I hope everyone has a lovely half term. Just a reminder that we'll be starting back on Tuesday 31st October and we will hopefully have a lovely new roof in the hall.

Thanks,

Miss Bowerman 

Trips

16 Oct 2017

Hello,

We had a fantastic week of trips last week. On Thursday we went to the Peckham Wildlife Gardening Centre where we got to explore habitats and even do some pond dipping. Luckily no one fell in! This helped us learn more about our Science topic and we got to add to the compost which we've been learning about too. 

On Friday we went to Balham library and explored the books there. We were lucky enough to hear some stories from Alex as well. We have another exciting trip this week and we'll be watching a performance by the London Philarmonic Orchestra and watching the Gruffalo's Child on Wednesday. 

Don't forget our fantastic street food market on Thursday 19th October/ We'll be selling food from around the world as part of Diversity Week. 

Thanks,

Miss Bowerman
