Today we reopened the gates and welcomed back a number of our Farnborough children with a bright start to their day. It was lovely to see some our families and we look forward to working with the children. We hope everyone is well and send our warmest wishes to all of our families.

In Year 3, we have been learning about the impact of plastic on our oceans.  The children collected their plastic rubbish for a week and brought it into school.  We then sorted it into items which are recyclable and items which are non-recyclable.  We were surprised by what we found out, as lots of the plastic […]

Year 4 spent the day looking at Anglo- Saxon artefacts and learnt that the Anglo-Saxons were warriors, invaders and farmers. They were also fine craftsmen, making finely detailed objects out of glass, silver and gold. We saw the many treasures discovered  at Sutton Hoo that were buried with the important  Anglo-Saxon King, King Raedwald of East Anglia. We had a […]

Last Friday Year 2 had a fun afternoon as they boarded a plane in to a mystery destination! To start their new topic, (‘Oh, the places you’ll go’)  they showed passports and boarding passes that they had made to Mrs Matthews (their pilot) and set off on their adventure. When they arrived they followed a series of clues to find […]

The Reception Class really enjoyed their first school trip to The Planetarium yesterday and were very excited as they walked through Greenwich Park to The Royal Observatory.  They enjoyed a Discovery Space Workshop, where they pretended to go to the moon,  followed by lunch and a look around the Weller Astronomy Galleries.

If you shop there please support us and mention us to family, friends […]

We are delighted to announce that in November 2019 we raised a fantastic £328.90 for the Poppy Appeal week in the lead up to Remembrance Day. This is the most we have ever raised and we would like to thank both our pupils and parents for all of the support they have given for such […]

Today we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Bromley Youth Music Trust who performed several pieces of music for the whole school. We learnt about the differences between a viola, a violin and a cello and the various sounds they can make. The children sat quietly and listened attentively to the pieces of music carefully selected from […]

Centaurs visited the Tutankhamun exhibition at The Saatchi Gallery. The children were able to see first-hand, treasures that were found in the tomb when The Young Pharaoh was buried.  These ancient artefacts were amazing to see and the children enjoyed this experience immensely.
