As part of our Stone Age topic this term, Year Three have been working hard both in the classroom and at home to produce some fantastic pieces of work.
Sparkling jewels, impressive sentries, tales of terror and majestic kings and queens – our day at the Tower of London was jam-packed full of fascinating facts and stories!
A huge thanks to the Friends of Benedict House for our new equipment and toys to enhance our children’s experience, and especially for our fabulous gazebo!
Our new School Council has published a letter to the school.
A huge thank you, and well done, to everybody who took part in, and came to support, Sports Day. There were so many examples of great sportsmanship and outstanding effort on display, which created a really positive spirit all round.
Our grateful thanks, once again, go to Mrs MacInnis, Chair of The Friends, and her team of Mrs Green, Mrs Summon, Mrs Singh and Mrs Moreland who put in so much hard work to make our annual Summer Fayre such a huge success.
On Wednesday, Year Four went to Greenwich for the day. Whilst there, the children travelled to the Thames Barrier by boat.
Year Six enjoyed a fantastic week on PGL, learning new skills and enjoying many different challenges.
Last week, Pre-School and Reception went on a lovely trip to Shorne Woods Country Park.
Last Wednesday, the Friends of Benedict House hosted a Grandparents' Coffee Morning.
Pre-School have returned after the Easter break eager to explore their new topic all about Planting and Growing.
Competition was fierce as the annual school Easter Egg Rolling Competition took place in the last week of term! Spectators were, too, in awe of the inspirational creations of some of the Easter Bonnets.
Year Three search for fossils, and learn about the soil beneath our feet.
Year Five have continued to learn about the Mayan civilisation. Something that can make History come alive is when the children are able to make items similar to those used during the period in question.
Due to the snowy disruptions of last week, World Book Day came to Benedict House somewhat later than planned – but, as they say, better late than never! Some children (and teachers!) shared their wonderful book character costumes with the rest of the school on Monday
The weather conditions tested our resolve last week. We were determined not to let it stop learning, when at all possible, yet it was also important to balance the children’s time with some fun.
Last week Year One headed off to the National Maritime Museum, in Greenwich, to spend the day as pirates.
