We all came to school dressed in our Eid outfit and enjoyed our party.
Empty Classroom Day - 24.06.16
We undertook our science lesson outside this week. We were listening to what sounds we could hear? How far we could hear? What happens when we move away from the source of sound?
A Special Assembly - 20.06.16
This morning we had a special assembly which reminded us to always have courage and confidence and do our very best.

Today we celebrated the start of the Euro Cup 2016 by coming into school in our football team kit or the colours of the country we are supporting. We also had the opportunity to do penalty shootouts which was fantastic. The winners for the boys were Abbas 4H and for the girls were Zara 4D. Well done
We have a busy half term coming.
Singer's Hill Synagogue Visit - 26/5/16

Design Technology - Sandwiches - 24/5/16
Finally, we made our delicious sandwiches to show all the new skills we learnt in DT. Take a look at them, they will make your mouth water!
Diversity Day - 16/05/16
Today we celebrated diversity by having a day full of fun activities that really make you think! We looked at thedifficulties partially sighted people go through to get around and do normal things, like pour a cup of hot tea! We also enjoyed taking the challenge of different games in the Millennium Room. We took part in learning Makaton; tried to colour while looking in the mirror, played basketball on our knees, tried to open a jar containing a sweet using only one hand in a glove and many others. We now understand (a little) of how difficult some people mind find it to do ordinary, everyday activities.
In the afternoon, we read a story by Oliver Jeffers called 'The Way Back Home' and drew a cartoon strip to show instructions to fix a broken plane. It was difficult trying not to use any words except the title!
UNICEF - Change Day: 13/5/16
Today we started with an informative assembly by Year 6, where we learned about refugees and the dangers facing them as they make their way to safety. We also came to school with no uniform (Yeah!) to raise money for a worthy cause. We also learned about Aya and the problems facing refugees as they stay in the camps awaiting documentation to enter other countries legally. It was sad.
Assembly- Lailat Al Miraj - 6/5/16
In DT we are going to make sandwiches, learning skills such as cutting, grating and how to prepare different kinds of bread. We even got to sample a few! Mmmm, not bad.

World Book Day
On Friday 4th March we celebrated World Book Day. We dressed up as characters from 'The Lion the witch and the wardrobe.' Can you spot the white witch, Aslan and the professor?
Children had a wonderful time writing creative stories and perfecting their designs for a token and a book bench.
Some children even had the opportunity to meet and work with the famous author Chris White. They were truly inspired!
