Penguin Pete – Year 1 and 2 Winter Show

Well done to all the children and adults in Year 1 and 2 for such a super winter show. In a short space of time, children learnt words, dances and songs to bring to life the heartwarming story of a penguin on a journey o meet Santa Claus.

The audience were greatly impressed with the enthusiastic singing, great comic timing and terrific team work. The children exuded joy and impressive levels of confidence and poise.

Contemporary Dance – Years 5 and 6

 

Children have benefited from weekly dance lessons with contemporary dancer and Rambert educator Delene Gordon. This term’s theme was water linked to learning about the Water Cycle and The River Thames.

The audience were hugely impressed with the level of physical strength and control, the confidence and freedom with which both girls and boys moved and the lyrical musicality. Thank you to our superb dance teachers and well done Year 5 and 6 on another terrific year of dance!

Young marketeers!

Last week Tye, Rajayden, Iyman, Adenita, Gabriel and Tiffany baked foods from around the world and then sold these at yet another sale in Borough Market in order to raise money for the Fareshare charity.

The children gave up some of their lunchtimes to bake and decorate traditional Italian spiced biscuits, make ingredients labels, price tags and other signs. They were so enthusiastic some of the children baked special foods they cook at home to take to the sale. We had foods from Kosovo, Jamaica, Ethiopia and Brazil. So a huge thank you goes out to parents for their wonderful support.

There were four schools at the sale and Charles Dickens alone managed to raise the biggest amount with over £110 from just two hours of trading. The children were very professional and have actually had a real taste of retail work. A huge well done to them!
