Role of excellence...

We proudly extend our Roll of Excellence to Samriddhi and Isabella for their exceptional dedication and contributions during our adventure!

On a delightful Thursday morning, Oak Class embarked on an exciting botanical adventure to the enchanting Chelsea Physics Garden. Our young explorers transformed into skilled plant hunters for the afternoon, immersing themselves in the vibrant world of flora. With great enthusiasm, we observed a diverse array of plants, including those that tantalize our taste buds, the ones that embrace a carnivorous lifestyle, and the remarkable specimens thriving in diverse weather conditions. The journey to the garden was equally delightful, as we joyfully boarded the tube and relished every moment of the experience.

Year 1 have been working on the concept of Division in Mathematics.

Year 1 are planting black eyed bean seeds so that they can make an observation diary of a plant growing.
