Some of our children were lucky to be invited to the official launch of the new film: Paddington 2!


They went to meet Paddington at MoreLondon, who happened to bring another star of the film, Hugh Bonneville as well as the Mayor, Sadiq Khan. The children behaved beautifully, even though Paddington was being a little bit naughty.

Here is a link to the event. The children had an amazing time!



International Week celebrated Black history Month with a special focus on scientists and inventors.

The children have spent this week writing biographies, creating portraits and writing poetry to be read aloud at International Evening.

We had learnt about Bessie Coleman as part of Black History Month. On Tuesday and Wednesday we made portraits of her in the morning. In the afternoon we made models of planes on foam. We cut out the pieces and painted them. After that we came to International Evening. We ate food and I did the drumming performance. At the end I took a picture with my family and went home. Akilah

This year’s International Week was sensational. Year five learnt about Bessie Coleman, the first black female pilot in the world! The thing that stood out for me was International Evening. The drummers that had been practising for that very special evening also there was various types of foods like: bread, cake, chicken and lots of snacks. During that week we made portraits of Bessie Coleman, made mini planes in honour of Bessie and flags for International Evening. Zaki

At International evening I ate mouth-watering food. Then we had to do a drumming rehearsal and that was great. We were very nervous if anything went wrong. The audience came down and watched us do the show. First drumming, and there were no mistakes. Then me and Samia read Imagine. The choir sang amazing and tuneful songs. The fashion show started and I was first to pose. We had to walk across with our stunning outfits and show off. Overall I was glad to participate. Safaa

LPESSN – Girls in Sport Week

The LPESSN (London PE and Sport School Network) held some events to celebrate Women in Sport. Girls from the federation took part in American Football and Boxing.

On Monday some of us went to learn how to play American football. First we learnt what the people were called and we played. I was partnered up with someone from another school. It was tricky at first. I think we should play more of it in the school and I am sure other children in the school will enjoy it, but during it we needed to use tags as barging at each other is not allowed. We learnt how to kick the ball over the cross bar. It was the best day and we were given badges.

Aya, Year 5

We went to Bacon’s college to play   American Football. We were in two teams. The first team was attacking and the other team had to defend. We had so much fun it was the best day. We also did some warm ups and other games. We had tags around our waists—the other team had to get them.

At the end of playing football the lady gave us badges.

Faith, Year 5



Cross Country Running

For the past year, children have been running everyday for 5 minutes at the beginning of morning play. They have been building up their stamina and resilience – some are even running a mile each morning!!!
Last week some of the Year 5 and 6 pupils went to Southwark Park to take part in a 2km cross country run, and that afternoon we were treated to an assembly from parkrun junior to inspire us even more1

“The race was very tiring but I still had a lot of fun!” Ahmed
“This was fun and it was tiring!” Sophie
“The race was fun but it took out a lot of my energy!” Hannah
“Today I felt that the race was good and I tried my best.” Faith
“This was a great experience because we got to work as a team and develop our running skills.” Victoria
“First I came first then third! We all tried our best.” George
“I was happy because I wasn’t losing any energy so I love the running!” Zach

“Running is fun.” Amina


IntoUniversity Week

Year 6 spent a week working with IntoUniversity, a local learning centre which runs workshops and projects inspiring young people to achieve a higher education.

Purple class were lucky enough to visit HMS Belfast and visit Trinity College in Cambridge! Such wonderful opportunities to start their journey in Year 6.


Churchill’s War Room

On Monday 18th September, we went to the Churchill War Rooms. Once inside, we were shown a video from World War 2. We were handed out some devices that informed us about the different rooms. Interestingly, the people that worked there left the rooms in the same state as when they first went in.  We visited the meeting rooms, the dormitories and even saw Winston Churchill’s room!

When we arrived at the museum, we were given a grid each which needed to be filled in with information on Winston Churchill’s life. After watching a documentary on the interactive board which helped us learn more about the war and Churchill’s history, we visited different sections that covered Winston Churchill’s life; starting from his childhood and finishing off on the day he died. We learnt lots about him. For example, we did not know that he was a fine artist and that he was Queen Elizabeth’s II first prime minister. We have loved learning about his fascinating life and cannot wait to write our biographies on such an important figure.  Lona and Seryn. 













Snowsfields Portrait Gallery

























Lucy took a photo of us and cut it in half. We put half of the photograph and then we drew the other side of our faces using lots of different colours. When we drew the other side we coloured it in neatly and in the lines.


We had to colour in our faces neatly and make sure that there was no gap. We also had to draw the other side of our faces the same as the photo so we had to concentrate and not rush it.


Looking closely at my photo, I added all the distinctive details of my face. If I made a mistake I would go over it again. In the background of the portrait we drew random horizontal and vertical lines but no too many so that it created squares and rectangles.


​To colour in our portraits we had to choose either cool or warm colours. Warm colours are red, orange, yellow and pink. The cool colours are blue, purple and green. We used these to colour in our faces, features and the background of our portrait. The effects are really cool. It’s like we have taken a photograph and coloured it in.

For our portraits in Year 6 we used pop art as our inspiration and made our very own pop art portraits. We first, took our time to observe our photographs and  looked intently at our facial features . We had to be very careful when drawing our portraits so our pictures would come out great! We then coloured in our portraits in vibrant colours and added dots to give them depth. After that, we drew a thought bubble where we wrote our aspirations for the future.
Overall, the entire process was really fun are brilliant!

EYFS: Graduation

On Tuesday 11th July EYFS had a special ‘Graduation’ with our friends and parents. We were really excited to show our families our good behaviour, fabulous singing and also celebrate our excellent year of learning together. We sang ‘Baby Shark,’ ‘I Can Count to Twenty’ and enjoyed collecting our certificates whilst wearing our special, handmade graduation hats. At the end we sang ‘Dynamite’ and showed photos of all the fun learning we have done this year. After the Graduation ceremony we went to our classroom and had a refreshing drink and a biscuit with our families. We had a really lovely time and it we were so happy to see ALL of our fabulous families. We would like to take the time say a big thank you for supporting and celebrating with us. Thank you.
