DT Challenge Exhibition

Thank you to all parents who visited our DT exhibition as part of Parents’ Evening. The exhibition was a celebration of our recent DT Challenge where each child had to design and make a moving animal. It was wonderful to see so many children proudly sharing their hard work. Please see school blog and individual class blogs for more photos.

Easter Praise

Easter Praise

The school’s Easter service was at Southwark Cathedral today.

As part of it, Year 4 performed ‘Easter Praise’. It was such a professional show – the acting was superb with really memorable performances, the singing was beautiful and full of energy, and of course it was the first time Year 4 had done a musical like this which is a huge responsibility – and everyone thought it was terrific.

They were really confident throughout, and the story of the most important event in the Christian faith really shone through.

We were also delighted that the writer and composer of the show, Sheila Wilson, surprised us by paying us a visit. She told Year 4 that it was the best performance she had seen of this show. She said the performance was amazing and was bowled over by the quality of the production. It was really wonderful to meet her.

As we all know, exam results are just one measure of a school’s success, but nevertheless it is a
tremendous achievement and thanks to everyone who has made the school such a special place of
learning over the years.

Christmas Service

Christmas Service

On Friday, the school held its Christmas Service in Southwark Cathedral. It is always a special occasion and this year was no exception. It featured ‘Gold, Frankincense and Mirth’ which was led by Y5 supported by the other KS2 classes, while the younger children from EYFS and Year 1 sang ‘Away in a Manger’.

‘Gold, Frankincense and Mirth’ was a humorous and touching Nativity musical which Year 5 performed tremendously well. Their confidence, ability and talent shone through as they told the story of the birth of Jesus with a few jokes along the way. The singing from all the children was beautiful, particularly Ellah’s (Y6) solo from ‘Once in Royal David’s City’. Franklin’s (Y4) reading was very polished and professional.

It was great to see the many parents and friends of the school at the Cathedral for this service.
