Bugsy Malone

Congratulations to Year 6 on their performance of Bugsy Malone. What a fantastic show! Well done to Leanne, Amina, Shapee and Lou on their hard work supporting Year 6 to perform so well.

Kindness

Year 6 have been thinking about kindness and identifying kind characters in stories from religious books. As a random act of kindness, they decorated cup holders for people visiting our Hub Coffee Shop.

Buddhist Centre

Our Year 6 trip to the Buddhist Centre was really fun. I had never seen one before and it was amazing! The statues, the pictures on the wall and the decorations were amazing.  They even gave us cookies and juice!

The way back was fun because it… snowed!

Well back to the Buddhist Centre. We did some meditation (really quiet and still) and also there was the story of Buddha on the wall. This was a really good trip ~ Christiano, Year 6

Southbank Centre

Year 6 went to the Southbank Centre to hear Joseph Coelho read the story that we wrote. The book has been published as part of the Imagine Festival and we are now officially published authors!  

Chilselhurst Caves

Year 6 went to visit Chiselhurst Caves. At one point during World War 2, 15,000 people were living in the caves to keep safe. It was really interesting and really dark!

Child's War Evacuees

As part of our ‘Child’s War’ topic, year 6 got into role as evacuees, while the adults took on the roles of hosts, billeting officer and teachers. The children at Johanna Street Primary in 1939 really were evacuated to Tonbridge, Kent.
