Year 2 support Sport Relief !


We came into school wearing red clothes.  Sports Relief is a charity that supports African children.  We brought £1.00 to help raise money that could be sent to Africa.  We took part by jogging and running around the playground and did an assault course too. We also watched a video showing us children running around a pond and dancing around to raise money and we then copied their dancing moves.  We thought it was really good fun to dance!  Zaci said he loved today and hopes it happens again next year!

Y2 Trip to The Florence Nightingale Museum

thumb DSCN0333We got to the museum by coach. Some of us played games in the coach. We saw the London Eye, The Shard and Big Ben on our journey!

When we had our lunch some geese came to try to eat our food!  We then walked to the museum to meet an actress dressed up as Florence Nightingale.  She told us about Florence’s life and asked us lots of questions too to see how much we knew!  Sam had to pretend to be Florence’s dad and said “I want you to get married” when Florence said she wanted to become a nurse!  We then walked around the museum. We had to sort out rotten food for the soldiers and see how it had changed after Florence Nightingale had been working there.  We also saw Florence Nightingale’s owl called Athena.  She was stuffed.

Mia got to dress up as Florence Nightingale and Zak dressed up as a soldier.

We had a great trip!

Holocaust Survivors Visit Year 6 Pupils

As part of our Jewish Studies work on the Shoah, Year 6 were very fortunate to welcome two Holocaust survivors into our class to tell us about their journey for survival.  

Ann and Bob Kirk, who are married, both survived the Holocaust as they were taken on the Kinder Transport from Berlin to London in order to be safe from the war.  Their fabulous adventure amazed the whole class and they were particularly interested to hear how, when Ann arrived at London's Victoria station, her 'Aunty' (which was not her real Aunt but a foster parent) was ready and waiting for her.  From then on, Ann was evacuated again to Berkhampstead as World War II had just started in England.  From having a normal life as Jews in Germany, to finding out her parents were in a concentration camp called Auschwitz in Poland, their horrific but lucky journey enabled them to be safe and live to tell their tale.

It is a tale that the Year 6 class will remember for a very long time and pass on to future generations.

Here is a picture of the Year 6 standing with Ann and Bob.

In Geography Year 4 are learning about a village called Chembakoli which is in India. We were so inquisitive to learn that our teachers arranged a date for somebody at Action Aid to come and visit and share their experiences of village life.

We're Going On A Bear Hunt !!

 Nursery and Reception have been re-enacting the bear hunt story by Michael Rosen.

We have been acting out different parts of the story. Last week we walked through the swishy swashy grass in the fields behind the school and this week we had great fun wading our way through the deep cold water.

We have also been creating our own artistic masterpieces in the style of famous artists. We looked at Vincent Van Gogh’s famous picture of Wheatfields which looked like Swishy Swashy grass and this week we have looked at Monet’s pictures of ponds and water lillies.

The atmosphere in a theatre was electric as children danced, sang and celebrated the true meaning of Chanukah.

Year 5 children from Clore Shalom Primary School in Shenley donned kippas, crowns and Greek armour to perform the Chanukah story of how the Macabees drove out the Greeks from Judea.

The play was written and directed by Year 5 teacher Bianca Revens and children were also involved in set design and lighting.
