Harvest Festival Assembly

On Friday 19th October we held our Harvest Festival Assembly.  This was a fantastic opportunity for our pupils to consider the beliefs and experiences of some people in our local community.  We were kindly joined by Rev. David Howland who helped us understand how Christians celebrate at this time of year.

We also had the chance to reflect on how we can care for those less fortunate than ourselves, including our efforts to collect donations for the Lewisham Foodbank.  Take a look below at everything we managed to collect.  These items will go to help local families and children in need.

Thank you to all our families for their generosity in donating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Year 1’s Paleontologists visit the Natural History Museum

Our first topic in Year 1 is called ‘Dinosaurs’.  We got this off to a roaring start with a visit to the Natural History Museum!  We found out lots of information about dinosaurs and fossils, and then we had a go at being palaeontologists.

We explored the Dinosaur Gallery.
What dinosaur is this? How do you know? What did it eat? Why does it have horns?
What can you find out about dinosaurs from these footprints?

What did you find out in the Dinosaur Gallery?

Sophie the Stegosaurus
Paleontologists at work!
What can we find out about Sophie from her skull?
How many spikes did Sophie have? What did she use them for?

We found out the answers to lots of questions about Dinosaurs, and we are looking forward to learning more during our topic.

Thank you to all the adults who joined us, and helped make our day a success!

We love adventures!

Our new topic began with an adventure right here in our very own school playground! Someone had left a map in our classroom, so we decided to follow the map to see if we could find treasure.  Along the way we met different animals who asked us questions that were a little tricky to answer.  At the end we found the treasure chest, but unfortunately Evil Pea had tricked us! He had taken the treasure, and we will only get it back if we return with the correct answers to all the questions.
