The pupils arrived with shiny new (black) shoes and smiles, ready to learn. The teachers were well prepared with our new curriculum and focus on reading.
Year 6, learning and working together.
This week saw Year 6 pupils either attend residential in Kent or take part in activity week in our local area.
At Swattenden the children had to make their own beds, clear up the dining room and work together to solve problems. We were immensely proud of their maturity, positivty and resilience. The staff at Swattenden praised their attitude and behaviour.
For activity week children took part in a photography project- which has created a great display back in school. They were welcomed at nearby Forest Academy secondary school for a day of catering, science and art. They also took part in water sports at Fairlop Waters, showing the same positivity and determination as their peers on residential.
Year One became chefs and food presenters for their curriculum work. Miss Payne was very impressed with their computing skills!
National Tree Week
In our curriculum we prioritise using our local community as well as cultural development. To mark National Tree Week every child visited Brocket wood and learned about British woodland. There's some excellent work on display in school.
