Yesterday, Class 6 visited London. We were lucky enough to have a tour of the Houses of Parliament (on referendum day!) where we looked around the House of Lords and the House of Commons. The children learnt lots about the history of democracy and then participated in a workshop. After lunch, we walked past Downing Street, through Horse Guards Parade and saw a glimpse of the Palace, before bumping into a floating Yoda (we are still trying to figure out how he was floating!). The National Gallery was our next stop and we looked at three paintings based on Greek Myths. The children were really involved in the discussions and they enjoyed learning more about famous Greek stories. Finally, we were on our way home, but not before being caught in a torrential rain shower on our way back to the coach. Everyone arrived home safely with soggy shoes – it was a fantastic day!
Year 5 were very busy in the kitchen last week. The children researched balanced diets, chose foods from a variety of food groups and designed their dishes. They then prepared and cooked the meals and everyone got to have a little taste! The children worked really hard and created some fantastic food.
Twenty three children from our Year 6 alongside other schools and adult community choirs took part in a brilliant concert last night. Led by musical director, Gareth Fuller and accompanied by session musicians and professional backing singers the massive choir gave an energetic and entertaining performance for the audience. Lily Bea Mather Dearden and Grace McCabe took solo parts and sang wonderfully well. What an experience for everyone involved. Well done everyone and thanks to all the parents who supported the event.
