This evening, Edmund Waller School Choir performed ‘Sir Duke’ and ‘Mary Mack’ at ‘Lewisham Live’, a concert at Broadway Theatre, Catford. The children performed with fantastic energy and they got a resounding round of applause which was very well deserved. At the end of the concert, the children performed ‘One Moment’ with ten other schools choirs. Every child tried their best tonight. Well done, Choir!
Year 6 went to goldsmiths university to get taught by student teachers. They had several fun activities were they played games like maths bingo, card games and number pyramids. It was a very enjoyable experience for students and teachers. We had fabulous feedback from the student teachers.

This afternoon, 2MH visited New Cross Fire Station to learn all about fire safety as part of our topic, the Great Fire of London. The fire fighters showed us their safety equipment and told us how they keep other people and themselves safe in a fire. Children were shown around the station, they were shown the office where calls come in, they were allowed to sit in the fire engine and they even had a go at squirting the hose!
On Thursday afternoon, Year 5 went to The Albany theatre to watch a production of William Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’. With the theatre to ourselves, we sat barely metres away from the action. We were introduced to the “war zone” of Verona and brought into the world of the play as ‘Capulets’ and ‘Montagues’ sitting either side of the stage. After the play, the children were able to ask all their burning questions both to the characters and then to the actors. We had a fantastic afternoon!
To kick start their topic ‘Designing for Life’, Year 5 were lucky enough to take part in a Lego workshop in which they designed and built a lego city.
Beginning with modest houses (and ending with grand hotels!), the children worked in groups to make the various elements of the city that they needed. They created circuits with bulbs to light their buildings as well as motors; the city even had its own working railway!
The children learned a huge amount, worked brilliantly in their groups and had lots of fun at the same time.
