The Last Supper

Year 4 re enacted the events of the Last Supper in a very holy and reverent service. We shared bread and wine and thought about the words Jesus spoke .” When you eat this bread and drink this wine remember me.” Each child prayed for another member of the class and we sang together. A beautiful ending to the Easter term.

KIeran explained that we all sat in a circle and took it in turns to say prayers about each other.

Johan enjoyed the fact that there was enough bread and wine for everyone to share.

Emmanuel said “We all shared the bread and wine which helped us to remember that Jesus died on the cross for us.”

Trees for the park

On the 23rd March, Year 5 crossed the road to Beckenham Place Park to meet up with the park wardens and groundsmen. Our mission: to help renovate the park by planting a few trees. There were 75 trees waiting in bags, and the children were eager to get started. Surprisingly, they not only succeeded in planting those, but more trees were fetched. Oak, Hazel, Sweet Chestnut… Just imagine our astonishment to find out at the end that 205 trees had been planted in around an hour! The children were happy to contribute to protecting the natural environment. As one of the year 5 children said: “Every puff of oxygen helps the world a bit more!”

School Councillors Visit The Mayor

The School Councillors from Years 5 and 6, Michaela, Che, Llywella and Rex,  spent an informative morning at the Civic Suite . When they arrived they completed a quiz about the London Borough of Lewisham, looked at Mayoral Regalia included former and current mayoral Maces and tried out the Mayoral chair. They then went into the Council Chambers , where they met the Deputy Young Mayor of Lewisham, Tekisha Henry from Sedgehill. She explained how she was elected and what her role is . They then went to meet Sir Steve Bullock, the Mayor of Lewisham. He showed them his Mayoral Chain and Badge and explained the work of Lewisham Council. The Councillors asked him about their policies and questioned him on his achievements and role as Mayor.

At the end of the morning Sir Steve announced the winners of the quiz and we were delighted to hear that it was………..St Augustines!  A fantastic end to a thought provoking and interesting morning.

STEM week

Y3 STEM WEEK 2017

National History Museum

Y3 had a marvellous day out on the 13th March. They went to the Natural History Museum to investigate geological forces from deep within the Earth using interactive demonstrations. The children made a real earthquake and poured lava and have gained the skills and knowledge to save a town from catastrophe. The show they took part of highlighted the awesome power of our planet’s natural forces and demonstrated the importance and challenge of natural disaster prediction. Great fun was had by all!

Y3 trip to the National Gallery

Y3 had a fantastic day out on Friday 3rd of February.  Their visit to the National Gallery proved to be fun, informative and thought-provoking. During their guided tour the children discussed various painting techniques, the use of primary, secondary and complementary colours and the painter’s choice capturing specific objects and moments of life.

The children were truly inspired and amazed and they cannot wait for their next Art lesson to use the new skills and knowledge they had gained from this wonderful experience. 

Celebrating STEM week.

At the end of STEM week we dressed up as scientists, mathematicians and science and maths symbols , everyone looked great.

We finished the week by making panpipes , we tried playing Irish tunes with them to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.

What an exciting week!

Special Choir Singing at the Barbican

We are so proud of Hollie, Kordi, Michael and Rachael who were chosen to join the Westminster School Choir at their performance of Faure’s Requiem at the Barbican. They sang Pie Jesu in Latin , which is a very challenging piece of music for 8 and 9 year olds.

Well Done!

STEM week

This week Year 4 have been focusing on the topic of Sound. We have learnt about Alexander Graham Bell who invented the first telephone  and famously said “The day will come when the man at the telephone will be able to see the distant person to whom he is speaking.” We wrote letters to him explaining how his vision has come true!  We experimented with tin can telephones, learning how the string must be pulled very tight to work.

Miss Buckland and Olaoluwa taught us how to use sign language to learn the alphabet and how spell our names.

Live Voices 2017 perform on Broadway !

 

There are 18 children in the school choir in Year 4 and they had a wonderful day and evening at the Broadway Theatre. In the morning the choir rehearsed with other Lewisham schools and then were given a tour behind the scenes of the theatre , listened to the restored organ and heard about the theatre ghost!

In the evening the choir were back to open the concert singing ‘Lean on Me’ to an audience of over 700 people. What a great start to the concert! After listening to the other schools perform everyone went  back to the stage for the grand finale with 326 children singing ‘Believe’. What a fantastic experience.
