Last week marked the very exciting 'World Book Day' celebration at Benedict House. We were fortunate enough to be visited by a talented local author, Seniha Slowinski (6th March), who spent time with each class to share her book, Rocky Rocks and the Colourful Socks.
Last week Year Three became petrologists for the day and visited the Kent Wildlife Museum to learn all about rocks and fossils.
The Year Six children have been learning about World War Two and through the course of our lessons have become increasingly interested in how the War affected our local area. A trip to our Local Archives at Bexleyheath Library provided answers to many of their questions.
What an amazing year group we took skiing; so well-mannered and impeccably behaved. Each child had a wonderful time, including learning many new skills and making memories they will have for the rest of their lives.
Last Wednesday, 25 very excited children from the BH Upper School Choir set off to sing and dance their socks off at the O2 arena.
Pre-School and Reception did not know what to expect when they approached the Astrodome!
Mrs Allen’s assembly on Monday focused on her telling us that books do not always need to be long to make them fun to read and listen to.
Year Five have enjoyed creating their own games, writing a set of instructions and playing according to the rules.
The end of term was such fun at Benedict House, with the children performing their Nativity play and Songs through the Ages for us all to enjoy at Christchurch, dressing in their onesies and PJs for the day, enjoying a Christmas lunch with all trimmings and of course seeing Father Christmas. The fun and excitement did not stop at the end of term, though, as a large number of children enjoyed the week of Holiday Club which was filled with fantastic activities for all to take part in.
There were some amazing entries for the Benedict House Bake Off 2018!
Last Wednesday Year Three took a trip back through time to the Stone Age. We had an amazing adventure and, for a day, lived like real Stone Age people.
On Friday, Reception hosted an Afternoon Tea to thank their Mummies and Daddies for everything they do for them.
Benedict House has been remembering those who have sacrificed so much to make our world a better place, as we have paid our respects on the Centenary of Armistice Day .
Our Reception children had a fabulous time on their first visit to Wickham Court for Forest School.
Before Half Term, Reception went on their first ever school trip as a class. They visited Hall Place and were amazed to learn how big it is there and about all the different things you can do.
Last Thursday, we were treated to an inspirational visit by a fantastic young GB Athlete, Peter Bakare.
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!
