Y1 Frozen Planet Day

Today, Year 1 became a winter wonderland!

The children wore winter clothes to keep themselves warm, and activities included: exploring an igloo in class, researching polar animals, polar shape maths challenges, making a magnetic fishing game, melting ice, making penguin beaks, making hot chocolate and tasting it (of course).

It was a great day, with lots of fun and deep learning about this term’s ‘Frozen Planet’ topic.

Year 6 Citizenship Workshop

Yesterday, Year 6 started the new term with a Citizenship workshop at the London Transport Museum. The children took part in 7 sessions about bus safety, road safety, train safety, first aid, dealing with strangers, cyber safety and fire safety. They really enjoyed themselves and were extremely well behaved! Everyone learnt something new, including the fact that a bus weighs 18 tonnes!
