Year 2 met with Florence Nightingale and found out all about her childhood, her career as a nurse and all of her achievements. One of her biggest challenges was making improvements at the Scutari Hospital during the Crimean War. She valued her nurses and her friend Mary Seacole who was also passionate about her vocation as a nurse. The children engaged in role play and discussed how hospitals and nursing have changed.
Year 5 had an amazing visit to the Jewish Museum in Camden. We had a series of interactive and multi-sensory workshops. This encouraged us to learn about the vibrancy of Jewish religion and culture today. We also explored Judaism through key objects, contemporary films and guided discussions to understand what it means to be Jewish in Britain today.
The children went on a tour of the British Library. They took part in oral story telling using their voices, words and bodies to help retell a traditional story. They created their own story inspired by locations within the library.
On 21st March 1B went to the British Library for a story telling workshop. We retold the story of the 3 little pigs orally and then used our imagination to create our own story using two pictures as inspiration.
We all of course enjoyed having a packed lunch together!
Year 6 travelled to the Unicorn Theatre in London to see Gulliver’s Travels. The children were really impressed with the clever way in which a story with giants and miniature people was acted out simple using camera placement. The storyline also captured the children’s attention and imaginations.
Year 5 enjoyed a day of maths activities at Kempton Park Race Course on Monday 24th January. They learnt about converting between imperial and metric measuring systems, as well as working out the number of horses that could safely walk around the parade ring. They also learnt how to work out how far the horses ran and the various weights they were able to carry.
