Outdoor Prayer Day

Yesterday, we held our first outdoor Prayer Space Day led by St Mary’s Church. Using our Collective Worship theme of Jonah, there were different stations enabling the children to explore the themes of the story. There was even a whale’s mouth to go into!

Children thought about: who helps them to make choices, what they do when things are difficult, what they want to aim for, and forgiveness for the things we are sorry for.

We are very grateful to Kirstine and Charlotte from St Mary’s for running this wonderful day for us.

Art Day and Drama Performance

On Thursday, every class had a special art day on the theme of ‘Dreams’. This was to link with the Drama Club performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ on Friday. The children’s artwork is wonderful and they had a fantastic time creating it. Several classes also linked their writing to their art, and produced some really beautiful poetry and biographies of artists. Parents were invited to come and see the art, and those who did really enjoyed it!

Here are the Drama Club children taking a bow after their amazing performance:

Play Street 2018

Yesterday, we held our second after-school Play Street event for pupils and their families. We had a huge variety of activities, including a disco bike, paint bike, the ever-popular smoothie bike, bike jewellery, craft activities, an ice cream stall (thanks to our Year 6 Yound Enterprise project) and lots of fun games. It was also wonderful to have a beautiful min-park lent to us for the afternoon, complete with hay bales and olive trees.

Many thanks to Westminster Council for closing the road, Sustrans for bringing the bikes, Marylebone LEN for running a seed-planting stall and providing information, and to My Time Active for the games. We are also grateful to the staff and parents who helped out, and to St Mary’s Church for running one of the stalls.
