Preparing for the pyramid- year 6 mummify fish

Year 6 are learning all about the ancient Egyptians this half term and this week they have been thinking about mummification. They spent Friday afternoon practising their embalming techniques on fish which was not for the faint hearted as it involved the removal of all the major organs. They will  now be able to use their expert knowledge in their writing and perhaps in their future medical careers! For photos and more information about their other topic work please see our Twitter page.

Record-breaking Attendance

An incredible 6 classes achieved 100% attendance with no lates this week — definitely a record-breaker!

Well done to Sycamore, Oak, Cherry, Elm, Chestnut and Nutmeg classes who will be sharing the trophy between them.

Congratulations to Morgan who won the individual attendance prize this week.

Congratulations to our art competition winners

Congratulations to the 5 children who won our art competition and will be visiting the National Portrait Gallery next week to gain inspiration for the acrylic paintings. All of the children will be working to transfer their current painting into acrylics on A2 when they get back and these will then hang in our growing gallery in school.

Well done to Rebecca, Nour. Deeqa, Islam and Nassar- you are really talented artists !

Soup Kitchen in Ladbroke Grove

Year 3 and 4 are studying the War as part of their history and geography topic this half term and yesterday they made soup that would have been common in war time. They chopped and prepared all the ingredients themselves and steamed up Busy Bees in the process! Everyone declared it was delicious- which, as it contained quite a lot of cabbage, was a real result for healthy eating ! They will be using this learning to inspire their writing for the rest of this week.

Poppies for sale

School councillors will be selling poppies at the gates from Wednesday 2nd November. We have been encouraging all of the children to buy one to help support many charities, including local ones in Ladbroke Grove. Look out for details of our Remembrance assembly next week led by Cherry Class.

Year 5 trip to the London Aquarium

Year 5 rounded off their topic work on the Great Barrier Reef with a trip to the London Aquarium on Friday 20th October. They left Ladbroke Grove train station and travelled to the shadow of the London Eye on the Southbank to reach their destination. They were able to see lots of creatures who are native to the Great Barrier Reef including sharks and different varieties of coral. It was an inspiring way to finish their learning for this term and gave them a new perspective on conservation.
