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.
Yesterday, Key Stage 2 all visited All Souls Church on Regent’s Street for a joint service with All Souls School. The two choirs came together to sing pieces they had both learnt, including a medley of Beatles songs. All Souls read from the Bible and St Mary’s led the prayers. Everyone sang their hearts out and it was a wonderful occasion. We were particularly privileged to have Noel Tredinnick playing for us.
Here is a clip of our Beatles medley:
And here is a clip of ‘Great is Your Faithfulness’:
Today, Year 5 went to the ‘Wonderlab’ at the Science Museum. The children had a great time experimenting with the Wonderlab’s 50 different hands-on scientific investigations.
They then took part in a presentation called ‘Flash, Bang, Wallop’, in which children got to blow things up to show how fire is created and can be used to help us.
On Monday, Year 5 visited the British Museum to enhance their learning about the Ancient Egyptians. Mr Davies writes:
We visited the British Museum for several reasons. Firstly, we saw the legendary Rosetta Stone, which we studied in our Ancient Egypt topic. Next, one of the curators of the Museum gave us a talk about the oldest mummified body there (from approximately 5,500 years ago). Finally, the children had a chance to use mobile phones to create their own multimedia tomb paintings, to represent what they would like in the afterlife, had they lived in ancient Egypt.
Today, the children in Year 1 had the opportunity to sit in a professional orchestra rehearsal at the South Bank Centre. They could see the musicians close up and were able to explore their instruments, some of which were very old. It was really inspiring for them and they had a great time. We are grateful to London Music Masters for making this possible.
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.
