School Council spends £25k !!


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.

Readathon – Reading Challenge!

“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!


Year 3 Fossil Detectives!

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.
