5C began their tennis coaching sessions on Thursday, during which they learnt movement and agility drills both with and without the ball. We had a fantastic first session and are looking forward to learning more new skills every Thursday afternoon, for the remainder of the term.

Year 5 were transported back in time (and to Orpington) yesterday to spend the day as archaeologists at a real-life excavation of a Roman Villa. The classes were able to find out about the discovery of the site and explore what remains of what was once a farmhouse. They also had the opportunity to create mosaics, sketch genuine artifacts from the site, try brass-rubbing and dress in Roman clothes.
We have been planted sunflower seeds and thinning out our crops! Thanks for the great photos Paige!
Today, we went on a boat cruise down the Thames.
We travelled from Greenwich all the way to Westminster Pier, where we disembarked and had lunch.
Along the way, we saw so many landmarks and went under lots of bridges.
Nursery have been learning the story of The Gingerbread Man. We decided to bake some gingerbread men of our own.
