2018 Rushey Green Chess Tournament
Many Year 6 pupils, last month, took part in the 2018 Rushey Green Chess Tournament. In the finals, after a tense game where stalemate forced a draw, there was a rematch (see link below). Kelvin, from 6W, won the game – playing white (for those who want to watch the game). Well done to all the 32 players who took part and especially the semi-finalist and finalist who received trophies in assembly: Kelvin, Haydn, Sophia and Rashard.

Activities for children in Beckenham Place Park
Dear Lewisham schools,
Attached and below is information about free activities that are taking place in Beckenham Place Park over the summer, particularly in the first week of the school holidays. I would be grateful if you are able to share it with students/parents at your school.
There is also the LBMX club every Sunday, 12-2pm, at the BMX track by Old Bromley Road entrance. Bikes and safety equipment available to borrow and a qualified coach is on site to help beginners get started or give tips on improving. Just turn up. First session free, donation of £2-3 thereafter.
Plus Saturday 18 August, guided bike rides at the park (see attached) – free. All welcome. Just need to book on Eventbrite as numbers limited.
Finally, Nordic walking are running a free taster session in BPP on 27th July 2.30 – 4pm.
Meet behind the mansion. Everyone welcome. This is an event as part of London National Park City week. More info at: http://www.museumofwalking.org.uk/events/nordic-walking-beckenham-place-park/
It would be wonderful to have lots of Lewisham children making the most of the largest green space in Lewisham over the summer holidays. The park’s postcode is BR3 1SY and it is easily accessible on the bus eg 54 or trains to Beckenham Hill, Ravensbourne or Beckenham Junction.
Any questions please ask!
Thanks and kind regards

World Book Day 2018
The children were really excited to see their teachers dressed up as book characters for World Book Day.
The Choir were fantastic at Lewisham Live Performance last Tuesday – They were commended for singing a song with no backing track which was a difficult thing to do but they pulled it off perfectly and made Rushey Green proud.
Rushey Green pupils and Lewisham’s Mayor, Sir Steve Bullock, celebrated Fly the Flag for the Commonwealth at the Civic Suite .
