Year 2 had their first ever lesson in the Art studio this week and made a great start by becoming detectives; observing patterns and intricate details on natural objects using magnifying glasses, inspired by the works of Angie Lewin.
Year 3 used torches to shine on apples to discover where the shadows would fall this week, as part of their observational drawing lesson.
Year 6 stared their topic on one point perspective this week! They have made a great start understanding vanishing points and showed shapes punching out of the page.
We have had a fantastic morning at the Haileybury STEM challenge with more creative problem solving challenges. The boys enjoyed the physics and maths challenges! They also enjoyed programming the robot!
We are now learning Chromatography, identifying metals using a bunsen burner and precipitation tests in the chemistry lab.
Congratulations to Leon G from Year 4 who won the KPSA’s cover competition with his Superhero design. Leon’s drawing will be used on the front cover of the programme for the Summer Fete and will appear on banners outside school. Well done to the other boys for taking part.
This week it was great to see such a fantastic Year 3 production and the boys individually and collectively put on a thoroughly enjoyable show. Well done to them and the teachers for the hard work that goes into events such as this.
Reception Class had a wonderful time at London Zoo this week. We got the opportunity to visit the terrific tigers, swoop high with the owls, burrow with the meerkats and even hiss with the Madagascan cockroaches. The boys loved exploring the zoo and its famous animal sanctuaries and showed off their great knowledge of animals and their habitats in the hands on workshop where they sorted and classified animal artefacts.
Thank you to all of the parents that supported the trip.
We will be holding a training session for all junior school parents at 6.30pm on 1st May to go through the new parent platform. Please contact Mrs Fleming if you would like to attend. email@example.com
Yesterday, I took four Year 6 boys to Haileybury to represent the school in a Robotics challenge.
We had an amazing day. Starting with the boys having to build a VEX robot from its components which we managed to do in approximately 40 minutes. In the second session we had to design a snow plough addition to our robot to allow it collect our designated rings in the challenge. The boys came up with an amazing design which worked beautifully.
We finished the day with Robot Wars and redesigned our model. It made it through all the rounds of the competition unscathed due to a fantastic design. I would like to thank the four Year 6 boys who represented the school so magnificently. I was very proud of their robotic skills.
It has been a busy week on the Rugby field, with around 20 matches taking place, involving boys from Year 3 up to Year 8. Real all about the boys’ matches this week in the newsletter!
