This week, 10 children from Years 1 and 2 took part in an exciting competition held at Bonus Pastor, alongside Holy Cross, St. Winifred’s and Downderry Primary Schools. The challenges included a ball throw task where they had to throw a ball against the wall and catch it as many times as possible, without the ball reaching the floor. The children also had to really concentrate in both the Balance Pole and Balance Ball challenges where they were only allowed to balance on one foot for as long as possible. Finally, they took part in a series of running races where they had to run as fast as they could, from one cone to another. Each of the cones were numbered so they had to run in a particular sequence. This ended with a quick sprint race against Downderry Primary School. This was a fantastic opportunity for the children to showcase fundamental skills which will help them to develop their coordination, agility and skills, Well done!
Year 1 and 2 took part in the training program, aimed at reducing the number of scooter accidents. The training is lively and fun. It took place in the playground and then the children were taken onto Dunfield Road.
Year 2 visited Pizza Express Beckenham to support our Design and Technology topic on fruit and vegetables . Children learnt all about fresh healthy ingredients. They were given the opportunity to taste, touch and smell the ingredients. They thoroughly enjoy the session and came away with a tasty pizza they made by themselves.
The children are taking part in house meetings, by the end of the week they will have 4 arts and crafts activities completed. They are all enjoying socailising in their houses and working together. What a great way to end a term.
Year 2 have been learning all about the Great Fire of London. They were taken back in time to 1666 during their visit to St Paul’s Cathedral. The children were taken on a guided walk around the Crypt and Cathedral floor to find memorials from Old St Paul’s that survived the Great Fire. Through storytelling, they learnt about how the fire started in Pudding Lane and quickly spread. With the aid of role play scripts they dressed up and acted out what it was like during the Great Fire of London.
A huge thank you to our parent helpers who made our visit even more special.
Well done to the year 6 children and the staff who took part today in the match. The match was well played and the rest of the school were great spectators. This is one of the traditions we have every summer term and is always enjoyable.
The score was 9-2, well done to the staff team who won.
The children in year 2 are enjoying their gymnastics lessons with Miss Tucker on Tuesdays. As you can see they use big and small apparatus to develop their spatial awareness and different types of movements.
