Roll of Excellence 

 

My roll of Excellence this week is for Ayush and Aveer, for showing their creativity and making the most of their independent learning time. 

 

This week was STEM week. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. On Friday we took part in different activities organised by Ms Silva and we learnt about the heart, bones and our bodies. The activities were carried out by children from year 4 who were great helpers. It was super fun!

This week the children did a volcano experiment with Mrs Hasan. They’ve learnt about dinosaurs and how volcanoes were one of the reasons for their extinction. They had lots of fun doing this activity. Next week we will be learning about Toys Old and New.

This week some of the Elm class children cooked with Miss Reando! They made some delicious Tacos (Mexican food). Next week we will continue learning about Dinosaurs.

This week we have been learning different facts about the Rainforest and the seven continents song. Next week we will continue learning about the rainforest.

This week we celebrated Book Week and had a workshop with the author Eva Wong Nava. On Friday, children dressed as their favourite book character. We had a great week!

This week we have been learning about People who help us. We also celebrated Diwali, the festival of lights. We wore our traditional costumes and learnt the song "Diwali is Here." Next week we will continue learning about people who help us. Happy Diwali!

In Reception we love to celebrate all cultures, religions and ethnicities. Through a circle time, we explored Article 30 and came to understand that if everyone was the same, the world would be a very boring place and that our differences should be celebrated! To celebrate Black History Month, we learned "Che Che Kule", a folk song from the African country Ghana. It's a "call and response song" where the leader chants a line and then everyone repeats it. We used instruments and body percussion to do this.

This week Reception took part in a scooter training with Mr Alex. They also learnt the golden rules to stay safe on the road. Next week we will continue learning about

This week we were very lucky to have a visitor from Great Ormond Street Hospital, Megan the Orthoptist. She told us all about our eyes and keeping them healthy and what happens when you go for an eye test! Next week, we will be learning about autumn.
