Last Monday, 6L helped Mayor Bullock Fly the Flag for Commonwealth Day
The children read out poems and short compositions they had written based on the theme of peace in the world.
Some year 4 and year 6 children have produced amazing artefacts and projects based on their topics ‘World war 2’ ‘The Greeks’ ‘The Victorians’ and ‘Evolution’. The children have written facts and created games, coins, Anderson shelters and carried out various activities.
Talent for Writing
Children from Year 2 entered work for The Young Writers’ My First Story competition. They were asked to write a story based on five story boards. They used their creativity and imagination. Some of their work has been selected for publication in a Young Writers’ Anthology.
To mark their achievement, they have also been awarded a certificate and a bookmark.

Staff and children celebrate World Book Day
On Fri 3rd Feb some of our School Council members were lucky enough to take part in a Meet the Lewisham Mayor event at the Civic Suite.
Our pupils were given an imaginary 25k to spend on local community issues and asked to address the council on how to spend it wisely.
The children received a certificate to remind them of the day. Needless to say they all spoke with passion and commitment, we were very proud of them all.
“Inspiring children to read is one of the greatest gifts you can give them”.
We had a fantastic week at Rushey Green exploring comics, newspapers, recipes, poetry, electronic books and just listening to stories.
To complete our reading challenge parents from Nursery to Year two attended our Parent Read Along Club, where they joined in the fun of reading.
A big THANK YOU to those parents and babies who attend our First Read Along Parent Club!
Budding paleontologists in Year 3 have been exploring a variety of fossils in Science this term as part of their topic “If Stones could Talk”. They have been developing their observation skills while researching the different creatures, including Ammonites and Trilobites, which have been hiding in the layers of rock beneath our feet for millions of years. In addition, the children have been creating their own fossil creatures and each of them have some amazing stories behind them.
To created the fossil the children mixed together coffee, flour, and salt. Then they kneaded the dough together and flattened it out onto waxed paper. Afterwards, they cut out circles of the dough into which they made imprints of their “fossil” objects.
Take a look at our photos.
Take a look at our Kings and Queens. Reception classes have been exploring fairy tales and have used a range of media to produce portraits of themselves as a character from a fairy tale.
