Yesterday, Year 6 had the opportunity to take part in a workshop led by Lewisham Youth Theatre.
We began the session with some games to get us warmed up.
We then explored our well-being through some drama activities.
Finally, we put all of our skills and the themes we’d discussed together create characters. Each group then developed these characters and put together and performed a short improvised piece of drama, exploring issues that children may experience.
It was a really fun morning! Thank you to the facilitators from LYT.
Today, Year 6 travelled into Central London. We walked along the river, stopping at three different points to do close observational drawings of some of the most recognisable landmarks.
We had a great time spotting the landmarks and we were all amazed at the progress we made throughout the day.
We even had a bit of time at the end of the day to visit a fun new playground!
Thank you for a great day 6F!
In Computing, 6F have been learning how to create spreadsheets and enter data (like Cicada!) using the Excel program.
We inputted the data under the column headings that we had chosen.
We had to be careful to make sure that we put the numbers in the correct cells.
Once we had inputted all of the data, we were able to do the fun bit- creating charts and graphs.
On Wednesday, we took a journey to Downe in Kent to explore the home of Charles Darwin.
We found out a lot about his life, his family and his experiments.
We then had the chance to perform our own experiment about the shape of finches beaks and how it supports the theory of evolution by natural selection. We made predictions, discussed how to ensure a fair test, performed the experiment (using safety goggles and gloves), recorded the results and then shared our conclusions.
We then went and had a picnic and some time to play.
We had a wonderful day (despite the long journey back) and everyone was engaged, well behaved and considerate. We even received 5 compliments from members of the public. Well done 6F, we are very proud of you!
Hands up who was exhausted!
On Friday, Emily and Cynon came to do an assembly about migration, the museum and to launch an exciting opportunity.
They asked us to reflect on our own migration stories and experiences- it was really interesting!
They invited us to take part in a competition to plan and design an exhibition for the Migration Museum in Lewisham shopping centre. This is a really exciting opportunity and everyone was very interested to know what the prizes would be! (Top prize is an exciting trip!)
After the assembly, we organised ourselves into teams and then got started. Most teams decided to create an exhibition on the Windrush Generation as that has been our focus this term. There were some brilliant ideas for interactive displays, films, music and food which could be served too!
I can’t wait to see the finished designs and hopefully we have a winning team in our midst!

Today, we had a visit from PC Lana and PC Wright.
They talked to us about how to stay safe when using the internet and they told us about what is an offence to say or do online.
Everyone knew lots about how to stay safe and had some brilliant questions for the PCs!
Here is a really good website to look at if you want to read anything more about e-safety:
And here is a great resource for parents to start a conversation about e-safety:
