Our day at Deptford Creek

Year 2V went to Deptford Creek to explore the habitats in our local area and study the animals and plants that live within them. We had an amazing time pond dipping, bug hunting and observing tadpoles, crabs, fish and eels. We had such a brilliant day!  


Mario Kart in Year 6.

This week Year 6 have been learning to write persuasively. We were challenged to write a persuasive letter to Andy and Sarah explaining why we deserve a game of Mario Kart. Needless to say our writing was fantastic! 


Thank you!

Thanks to the amazing generosity of our families we raised an astonishing £430 for the Nepal emergency appeal yesterday. I heard several reports of children emptying money boxes too so I know the children were a big part of this.

If you missed your chance to contribute or you would like to let someone else know how to then please go to the Unicef website which makes it very easy to donate.

Thank you again,


Spirals in Nature

Children has been fascinated by spirals.
We looked at the different type of spirals in nature.
We looked at the point of the origins and how the turns increased to form a spiral shape.
Children also explored our garden and Forest School to find these forms. They did find spiral shapes in snail shells.
Each child then used clay to reproduce their own spiral / shell, and embellished them with beautiful beads.













Forest school

On Thursday we searched forest school for different minibeasts and used identification sheets to help us. We also began looking at different  











 varieties of wild flowers and their names.
