Prayer Spaces Day

Today, Kirstine from St Mary’s Church led a ‘Prayer Spaces in School’ day. Different stations were set up around the hall for children to engage with and respond to. The most popular stations were the map of the world, thinking about people we might want to pray for in other countries, a ‘be still’ corner for personal reflection, and a place to say sorry. Children from every class visited our prayer space. Here are some of the children’s responses from the day:

Early Years Trip to Odds Farm

Today, F1 and F2 visited Odds Farm in Surrey. They had the opportunity both to see farm animals and to handle some. They had a wonderful day.

Sports Day (KS1 and KS2)

Today we had a glorious Sports Day at Paddington Rec. Every class rotated round the six fun activities, including skipping, egg and spoon and long jump. Then children in Years 3-6 all took part in a giant relay race, followed by a teachers/ parents/ Year 6 race (which the teachers won, of course!!). It is a fantastic day. Huge thanks to Ms Bell and Chris from QPR for organising it.

Great team support from Year 3 – well done!

Foundation Stage Sports Day

On Friday, F1 and F2 had a wonderful Sports Day. There were lots of different activities to try, including a bike race, egg and spoon race and a race involving a carrot and a chicken!!

The Year 6 helpers and parents also enjoyed racing at the end of the morning.

Music and Dance Concert

This afternoon, we had a concert to celebrate some of the wonderful Dance and Music that our children have learnt this year. We had four performance pieces from the choir, solos from several different children on the piano, a reprive of Year 6’s musical and two dance numbers. Also, two girls sang an original composition, unaccompanied.

Everyone did brilliantly and we are very proud of you all.

We then had fabulous refreshments out in the playground, courtesy of the Friends of St Mary’s.

Y6 End of Year Production

Yesterday, Year 6 performed the musical ‘Olivia’ to pupils, staff, parents and governors. It was a highly entertaining tale of life in Victorian Britain, based losely on Dickens’ Oliver Twist. Eliza Doolittle, Sherlock Holmes, George Bernard Shaw and Ebenezer Scrooge all made an appearance! The children did a great job, with both comedy and some very touching solos.

They were then presented with the school cups and our new school leavers’ medals.

Y1 Violin Concert

Yesterday, Year 1 performed for parents and pupils at their end of year violin concert. They have been learning the violin three times a week with London Music Masters, and will carry on next year. The children made a lovely, clear sound with their bows and sang and acted out some fun songs too!

Well done, Year 1 – we are really proud of you.

Y1 Queen Elizabeth Day

Today the children in Year 1 celebrated the life of our Queen, which marked the end of their History topic on Queen Elizabeth II.  The children made crowns, Union Jack flags and painted portraits of the Queen. They also made cucumber sandwiches which they ate with a small cake at a garden tea party.
