Seeing spots

We had a great art morning today thinking about the work of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. We learnt a lot about her and how you can really achieve  despite all kinds of challenges you might face in your life. Thanks to Miss Faiers for preparing all the resources and for inspiring us. Looking forward to having the children’s work up around the school.

Never forget

Thanks to Oak class who reminded us again today why we wear poppies for remembrance in this the 100th anniversary year  of the end of the first World War. History is fascinating and even more so when it comes alive for us through assemblies that link it to our own personal experience like this did. Makes you think …

Hooray for us !

We feel very proud that we have come second in the education section of the Brighter Kensington and Chelsea garden awards. We know this is all due to Rosy’s hard work as always. We are deeply indebted to her for her skills, patience and perseverance when we display less than green fingers!

It’s good to talk

Thanks to all the parents who came to parents’ evening and talked to us about how to help your children achieve even more in school. It is great to see and hear about all the support you give them. And of course to see Mr Dasso and Mr Taghi in a pinny!

Friendship Fun

We had our termly friendship afternoon this Friday. We love it when we can all mix up and play together. Thanks to Year 6 for collecting all their groups and helping out just like they are big brothers and sisters. We had a great time.

 

Black history matters

Thanks to QPR who came in and led our assembly this morning all about the importance of black history month. They were hugely inspiring and accessible for all. We learnt a lot and really enjoyed the thunderclap!

 

All things Japanese

Year 3 and 4 had a lovely day immersed in Japanese culture today. There was a real air of tranquility across the phase. Must have been all the sushi !

 

Come to the carnival

We had steel pans and colourful costumes in the middle hall today as year 1 and 2 celebrated all things carnival. Music, colour and fun- we love it! Thanks to all the parents who attended. The children were delighted to see you.

 

Tackling disadvantage

Thanks to all the colleagues who travelled to Bevington today to talk about the best ways to tackle disadvantage. There was much discussion and problem solving amongst the group with some good ideas that we can all share. It’s  good to talk.
