The children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have been spending time in their house groups. They have been taking part in arts and crafts activities with their peers, this has given them a wonderful opportunity to spend time with each other and bond.
Over the past month the houses have met once a week and have made Christmas trees, snow globes, ice skates and Advent wreaths.
Year 6 went to the Horniman Museum to study the ancient kingdom of Benin. They attended an “Introduction to Benin” handling session where they could hold and touch replicas (copies of the ancient objects) made about 10 years ago in Benin City, in modern Nigeria. The children looked around the African Worlds, Music and Centenary Galleries discovering objects from the ancient kingdom of Benin.
The Year 5 boys were delighted to be invited to take part in a inter-school football tournament organised by Sedgehill School and the Fulham Football Academy.
9 teams entered the tournament which meant that each team had to play 8 games, each lasting 7 minutes.
St Augustine’s Team A won one match and drew one.
St Augustine’s Team B won five matches and drew one which meant that they were in third place overall. A well earned achievement.
In addition 3 medals were awarded: to Che for being a very versatile captain, playing in all positions and motivating his team to keep going, to Jenujan for scoring the most goals and to Samuel for his amazing goal keeping skills.
We have come to the end of our term working with the year 13 B. tec sports students who have taken lessons and taught us new football skills such as using the side of your foot to kick the ball! We made cards to convey our thanks which the students were delighted to receive. We wish them the best of luck in their up coming exams.
