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.
