Choir Performance at the 02

On Tuesday 6th February, the Edmund Waller School Choir headed to the 02 to perform as part of a 7000 strong children’s choir.  The children have been working very hard since September to learn 16 songs that lasted an hour!  They took part in a 3 hour long rehearsal in the afternoon, followed by the concert for an audience of over 10,000 people in the evening.  They sang absolutely brilliantly and they performed with great energy and enthusiasm!

 

Year 6 visit to Wide Horizons or ‘Let’s go back to the Stone Age!’

Today, Year 6 were challenged to see whether they could survive in the Stone Age (it would be touch and go, we have to conclude…). They spent the day fire-lighting, shelter-building, hunting and creating cave paintings from natural materials and a lot of fun was had by all – and a lot of learning.

Year 6, what did you most enjoy about the day out? What was the most interesting thing you discovered? Wheat else did you learn? Did anything surprise you? Please leave your thoughts in the comments.

Natural History Museum Visit

On Friday 19th January, Year 6 visited the Natural History Museum to support their learning around their topic, ‘Life Cycles’.

They explored the Human Evolution gallery to add to their understanding and did some close observational drawing of birds and fossils of marine reptiles.

What were the most interesting things that you saw? What more did you learn on our visit?
