Art Gallery Evening

06 Jul 2017

Morning everyone!

You should have recieved your invitations to our Art Gallery Evening yesterday - I'm really looking forward to showing off the fabulous work the children have been doing this past term. Our 'material' has been the humble pencil and with it we have learnt a variety of techniques including hatching and stippling and have used some of this knowledge, alongside detailed practice to produce some fantastic pencil portraits and self-portraits. Our work and the design process will be on show in the hall tonight from 6:30-7:30pm and you will also be able to see all the work the other classes have been doing at our very own Telfertate.

See you all then!


Bug Hunt

26 Jun 2017

While the weather may have not been as nice as the start of the week, we certainly tried to make the most of the outdoors with a trip to Tooting Common to take part in a bug hunt! We met Andy, the Volunteer and Activity Ranger for the Common and he provided us with some great equipment for hunting including, nets, trays and magnifying cups. What followed was the most enjoyable hour I think I’ve ever had with the class – I’ve never seen children more excited about a moth! With the help of ID cards we found a range of creatures including caterpillars, butterflies, grasshoppers and beetle – and all on our doorstep! Take a look at our photos to see the fun we had!


International Day and The Great Get Together

15 Jun 2017

Good morning!

Tomorrow is going to be an exciting day - it's our international day and evening! This was such a success last year, a real chance to get to know a bit more about each other's heritages and cultures and I'm really looking forward to tomorrows events.

During the day children can come to school dressed in traditional clothes from their culture, or perhaps dressed as the colours of the flag from where they or their family were born. They can wear their swimming costumes underneath or take them as usual in their bag. They will be taking part in some fact-finding activites but it would be incredible if children brought in some traditional food to share with the class - please, if possible try to avoid products with nuts or raw egg or have them clearly labelled.

Then from 6:30pm - 8:00pm is our annual international night run in conjunction this year with the nationwide event 'The Great Get-Together' to commemorate the MP Jo Cox who died last year. Again, bring a traditional dish to share with our school community, watch the performances and catch up with the school community. I'm really looking forward to both events and if you have any questions then let me know!


Egyptian Music

What fantastic learning over the past term 3SC have been doing in Music - all of the skills they have been taught culminated in a performance of their Egyptian song performed with Stanley's mum and Uncle (thanks to both of you for coming in!) - you can watch it here!
