Yesterday, Westminster Council closed Enford Street for us to hold a ‘play street’ event, highlighting the importance of clean air, road safety and fitness. We had cycling activities (including a very popular smoothie bike), fitness games with My Time Active, craft with parent volunteers and staff from St Mary’s Church, as well as the chance to draw on the road with chalk and enjoy talking to one another! We are very greatful to Carla Lowe from Westminster Council and to the Marylebone LEN for organising this along with Mrs Leith and our school staff.

The children have been having lots of fun at our Minibest Hotel this term! We have had quite a few different visitors, particularly snails, who like munching on the food we leave for them. It is a wonderful way of engaging children with animals to foster their awe and wonder, and also to develop their language as they talk about what they can see.
Today, six of our Year 6 pupils visited Wetherby Prep School to challenge their mathematicians. They took part in a team challenge, working out a Maths problem using their logic and mathematical reasoning. They then finished the afternoon with a quick-fire Maths quiz. Our children cracked the puzzle really quickly and although they were slightly pipped to the post on the finished solution by the Wetherby boys, they definitely held their own! Well done Year 6.

This week, Year 2 visited London Zoo to learn more about endangered animals. They have been studying different animals and finding out why they are endangered and what we can do to prevent this.
Today, six of our budding engineers visited the Royal Albert Hall to conclude the ‘Evolution’ DT project. This was a project involving building mechanical structures, based on the Cirque du Soleil show ‘Amaluna’.
They presented work that the whole class had conceived, designed and built to other schools and the Rolls Royce engineers we have been working with. The audience were very impressed with their knowledge, passion and confidence (as was Mr Davies!).

Today, Year 5 visited the Wallace Collection to take part in an art workshop. Mr Davies writes:
‘The children were inspired by the story that Alex (an artist) read about Louis XV. They sketched objects that represented different parts of the story, before trying screen printing with various colour inks, to create an eclectic piece about the story. Alex was impressed with the ability and enthusiasm the children showed, as well their team work.’
