  • Thursday 25 May 2023 Year 3 Visit to the Hindu Temple As part of the RE topic this half term, Year 3 visited a Hindu Temple to consolidate our learning. We were very lucky to see how the priest led the worship around the temple, making offerings to each of the Gods on display. Then, some of the children were able to dress up in a selection of traditional clothes. We saw how long a sari can be and how to wear one correctly. Finally, we learnt about the role of a guru and the path that the priests follow from the age of 10.
  • Wednesday 24 May 2023 Year 2 Kingston Mosque Visit On Wednesday, Year 2 went on a trip to Kingston Mosque. As Muslims must be clean to worship, we were asked to take our shoes off when we went inside. We were taught more about how Muslims pray at the Mosque and the role of the Imam, who is the person who leads prayer and teaches. A few of us acted out being the Imam. We all had the opportunity to write letters from the Arabic alphabet, dress up, look at pictures and books written in Arabic, including the Qur'an and acted out 'Wudu' which is the way Muslims wash before they pray. We learnt about different Mosques from around the world and were taught some of the Muslim beliefs about Allah and what he means to Muslims.
  • Wednesday 24 May 2023 Year 1 Plants and Science Workshop On Tuesday we were lucky to enjoy a Science workshop from Freshwater. We had a visitor from a professor who taught us all about plants. We learnt about the different parts of plants and what their job is. Then we pretended to be different plants, comparing how trees, weeds and flowers are all different. We were shown some seeds and bulbs from different plants and were able to see how these are different. Then we acted out the life cycle of a sunflower, pretending to grow and grow until we were as tall as we could be.
  • Monday 15 May 2023 PSA Summer Fair On Saturday 13th May, the PSA held their summer fair. It as a wonderful event which was extremely well attended by the school community. There were some fantastic stalls and it was lovely to have both the choir and a local dance gorup perfroming during the day too. The event was a huge success and raised £2810.24 whcih will start off the funding for improvements to the playground. We are so grateful for all of the hardwork that went into planning and holding the event. It was fabulous to have so much of the community together for the day.
  • Friday 12 May 2023 Whole School Coronation Celebration On Friday 12th May, we held a whole school celebration for the coronaton of King Charles III. We had a dress up day with a 'dress for a party' theme and invited families in for a special worship - led by Mrs Griffin and a group of pupils. The children shared interesting facts from coronations through history, shared songs linked to the coronation and finished off with the National Anthem which Mrs Griffin had taught them to sign as well as sing.
  • Friday 12 May 2023 Coronation Artwork To celebrate the coronation of Kings Charles III, each class spent time creating pieces of art based on crowns. We are so impressed with the final pieces that the chidlren created and were so pleased to be able to display these at the PSA Summer Fair. It was fantastic to be able to share them with the Mayor of Kingston who commented on the quality of the pieces that they produced. The final pieces also show the progression in skills from the art work completed in Reception to the pieces created in Year 6. Something to be extremely proud of!
  • Wednesday 10 May 2023 Bible Club On Wednesday the Faith Reps led the second Bible Club this term. We were delighted to see 35 children. We continue to share the story of the Feeding of the 5000. The children shared bread, learnt a song and heard fascinating facts about this miraculous event!
  • Tuesday 2 May 2023 Year 1 Visit the Synagogue We got to explore the Synagogue and see what things we could spot. There was a very big mosaic that showed lots of special parts of the Jewish faith like a dove, the Torah, the shield of David. We spoke lots about the star of David and learnt it’s also called the shield of David. We particularly liked seeing the Torah and even got to see a yad. We learnt all about Hebrew including how it is written and how it is read.
  • Friday 31 March 2023 PSA Egg Competition - Easter 2023 Congratulations to our 7 winners of the PSA's Egg Competetiton! the children were asked to decorate an egg with an Easter message and a winner was chosen from each class.

  • Wednesday 29 March 2023 Easter Service Our Year 6 faith reps did a fantastic job of leading our Easter service this morning. They shared the message of how Christ is alive and that we can be forgiven through his death for our sins.
  • Monday 27 March 2023 Year 6 Visit Science Museum Year 6 had a wonderful time at the Science Museum where we watched the Antarctica 3D film at the IMAX. In this film, we discovered the many wonderful species that live on Antarctica as well as the many threats they face in the world's changing climate. Year 6 were able to see in 3D the huge whales of the Antarctic too as well as their spectacular feeding rituals as we reflected on how much carbon they helped as to absorb (up to the same as 2 amazon rainforests in one feeding). After the cinema, we had time to also explore the medicine gallery where we spotted information about penicillin which we have been exploring in our science lessons through Alexander Flemming's accidental genius mould discovery!
  • Friday 24 March 2023 Year 1 Visit Chessington Zoo Year One had a super day out at Chessington despite the rain and us getting very wet! We saw lions, gorillas, rhinos and penguins. We had lots of fun looking and guessing what the animals would be eating. We even went on a zoofari trip where there was a very stubborn giraffe who wouldn't move out of our way.
  • Wednesday 22 March 2023 Year 2 Visit Chertsey Museum Visit Year 2 took the coach to visit the Chertsey Museum. We dressed up in the clothes people would have worn when they went on holiday in the past. People had to pay money to get changed in a carriage and the carriage then took them into the water for a swim. It was considered rude to get changed in public and they had to wear a baggy swimming costume. Outside, we played some of the games people used to play on the beach and we also made shell pictures. We made our own Punch puppets like in the Punch and Judy show and we had some time to wander around the museum in our groups. Inside the museum, we looked at pictures of holidays from the past and made up our own stories about them. We learnt how ice cream was made in the past when they didn’t have freezers. Ice cream was very expensive so they could only buy a little bit and it made people poorly because they licked it and then they gave it back and germs were still left. We had a lot of fun!
  • Friday 17 March 2023 Year 3 Natural History Museum Visit Year 3 had a fantastic time at the Natural History Museum on Friday 17th March. We were all really amazed by the size of the incredible fossils on display in the corridors and spotted the fossils of shells on some of the sea creatures fossilised bones. We spent the majority of time in the Red Zone which gave us the opportunity to revisit our learning from last term’s topics of Rocks in Science and Earthquakes in Geography. We hung on tightly as we took part in the Japanese earthquake reconstruction, we turned everything that could be turned to recreate the erosion of rocks by water and pushed every button that could be pushed to reveal the different intervals within the rock cycle in various locations.
  • Wednesday 15 March 2023 Year 1 Fire of London Workshop This week we were lucky to have Freshwater Theatre visit us and complete a workshop all about the Great Fire of London. The workshop took us back in time to 1666 where the fire began in a bakery on Pudding Lane. We learnt about why the fire was able to spread so quickly and why it was hard at the time for the people to stop it. We also got to act out being the fire, using ribbons and our bodies to move like flames.
  • Wednesday 8 March 2023 Year 5 Easter Experience Year 5 have been on a wonderful Easter Experience at the King’s Centre. The children showed fantastic engagement throughout with a discovery zone (hands on activity environment) where they explored the impact that the Easter story has had on lives over the past 2000 years. This ranged from rewriting some of the bible scripture to going inside boxes to read writing with torches to find information. They then immersed in a tour through the Easter story from the Passover meal to discovering that Jesus was alive! This left us with questions like, did Jesus really die on Easter, how do we know when exactly he died
  • Friday 3 March 2023 Year 3 and Year 4 Kidzania Visit Year 3 and 4 went to KidZania on the 3rd of March to experience the world of work. The children had fun earning money for doing different jobs including fire-fighter, game designers, florists, police officers, spys, pilots, shop assistants, couriers, doctor, etc. They received kidzo bucks for completing tasks and had the opportunity to spend them doing different activities. They could update their balance at the bank and brought home their bank cards.

On the 9th of November Mrs Griffin and our Positive Relationship Mentors attended the Mental Health Ambassador conference at Southborough High School. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to learn more about what mental health is and how we look after ours and support others. We were able to create a Mental Health action plan and have a number of exciting collective worships, as well as theme weeks and reflection days planned.
  • Wednesday 16 November 2022 Year 2 Visit Pizza Express Today Year 2 visited Pizza Express in Kingston linked to their learning in Geography about food and where it comes from. They enjoyed becoming pizza chefs, helping to shape the dough, spread the passata and cover their pizzas with mozarella before they were cooked in the pizza oven. While they were cooking, they talked about the food groups that different ingredients would be sorted into and how these are produced. They had a fabulous time and are looking forward to trying their pizzas when they get home!
  • Wednesday 16 November 2022 Shoebox Appeal We have again had a wonderful repsonse to our Shoebox Appeal. We have over 60 boxes in the entrance waiting to be taken and delivered to the children who will benefit from this generosity.

  • Friday 21 October 2022 Black History Month Over the past month, the school has been exploring key influential black role models as part of their Black History Month learning. All classes have explored a key figure across a range of career paths; the children have been very excited to discuss the legacy of all our chosen black role models and how they impact our lives today. Our chosen figures included: Benjamin Banneker (Reception), Sir Frank Bowling (Year 1), Matthew Henson (Year 2), Katherine Johnson (Year 3), Marcus Rashford (Year 4), Marie Maynard Daly (Year 5) and Amanda Gorman (Year 6). As a school, we considered how racism impacted our chosen figures and discussed the importance of their life achievements being both acknowledged and celebrated. Through our collective worships, we have been able to explore how unconscious bias contributes to prejudice too. Classes have shared their learning through excellent motivational speeches, art, writing, creative thinking and music.

  • Tuesday 11 October 2022 Year 6 Residential to Hindleap Warren: Day 2 Day two has been extremely busy! Year 6 have been axe throwing, completing team challenges, building shelters and learning to light fires. They have been working together and showed great resilience when learning to throw the axes and how to light a fire. They found they had to work hard to keep the fires going too! A definite highlight of the day was toasting marshmallows and popping popcorn over the flames (more photos to follow of these activities later on). They have been enjoying a challenge night this evening and are heading for a story before bed. We are looking forward to another action-packed day tomorrow!
