Book Week

We have loved celebrating all things book-related this week! We have been welcoming a Mystery Reader into each class each day; stopping whatever we were doing and grabbing a book for ‘Drop Everything and Read’; swapping our World Book Day vouchers for a free book at Daunt bookshop; sharing books with our parents on Thursday afternoon and wearing our pyjamas to school! It really has been a fantastic week.

A special thank you goes to Mr Knight for organising it all, and to the parents and carers who have supported us by sharing stories, customising pyjamas and most importantly, inspiring a love of reading in our children.

Year 2 Florence Nightingale Day

To celebrate the end of their History topic, Year 2 had a Florence Nightingale Day.The children dressed up as doctors, nurses or soldiers. Over the course of the morning the children found out what it was like in Turkey during the Crimean war; learnt about first aid from Florence Nightingale (also known as Mrs Kennedy!); made a Royal Red Cross (which Florence Nightingale received from Queen Victoria) and
designed poster to recruit nurses and doctors.

#DontBeIdle

On Friday we had a film crew in school who were making a promotional video as part of Westminster Council’s #dontbeidle campaign. Pupils from Year 5 and 6 had starring roles and showed a great deal of talent! We will let you know when the finished film is available for viewing.
