Year 5 Apple Store trip - 19.4.18

On Thursday 19th April 2018 (the hottest day in April for almost 70 years), Year 5 had a wonderful morning spent at the Apple store in Bromley. They thoroughly enjoyed completing a variety of coding programmes organised by George and Alan, which included using Swift and instructing the Spheros. 

“The Apple Store trip was one of the best trips we’ve ever done. It didn’t feel like work! It was so much fun!” – Year 5 student.

Nursery and Reception Godstone Farm Trip 19.4.18

On Thursday, Nursery and Reception went to Godstone Farm. The children got to meet lots of different animals, feed the pigs, ride a tractor and so much more! It was a great (and hot!) day and the children behaved exceptionally well. Also, a big thank you to all our parent volunteers and the Godstone staff who helped make the day run so smoothly. Keep an eye on the photo gallery for more pictures to come!

18.4.18 - Reception look for signs of Spring

Today, in Reception we repeated our walk to Sidcup Place Park, just like in the Autumn, but this time looking for signs of Spring. The children used iPads to take photos of the things they found. Afterwards, we even found time for a quick play in the park! In class, we will be using the photos taken to help us write about the signs of Spring.

Year 6 Poetry Recital Competition

On the final afternoon of this term the Year 6 children treated us to five wonderful poetry performances. Zina, Hannah, Ben, Asya and Scarlett brought their chosen poems to life with dramatic recitations using very effective tone of voice, along with facial expression and actions. It was a fierce competition and the judges found it incredibly difficult to select between the five performances. Based upon the criteria, Scarlett was selected as the winner with Hannah as runner up. However, one and a half points separated first and fifth place! Congratulations to all of the children who entertained the school so superbly.

Y2 Visit to Sidcup Fire Station

On Friday 23rd March, we visited Sidcup Fire Station. The firefighters on Green Watch showed us some firefighting equipment from the past and how it has improved in recent years. We saw where the calls come into the station and heard the alarm that they hear when they are needed. We took our cardboard buildings with us and the firefighters made them into Pudding Lane and set fire to them! We watched how the wind blew the flames along and how the fire stopped when there was a gap in the buildings. Lastly, we got to explore the Fire Engine and see all the equipment the firefighters carry with them to emergencies. We asked lots of questions and really enjoyed the trip. A great end to our topic.
