Science- spreading germs!
We investigated how germs spread and how to wash our hands effectively. Our lucky volunteers coated their hands in oil and then flour to represent germs whilst the class predicted what would remove the most dirt. The choice was out of using a combination of soap, no soap, hot or cold water. It was quite messy and quite shocking to see how thoroughly we needed to wash our hands. We then practised good handwashing techniques.

Year 3 Trip to St Albans
Year three had an incredible day out when we visited the Varulamium Museum in St Albans. The children showed great enthusiasm at what they saw and were so eager to discover new facts. They got to watch a video about life in Roman times, look around the museum and handle artefacts from the Roman times, which they were thrilled about. Have a look at the photographs from the day. See if you can work out what some of the weird but wonderful objects were used for. A huge thank you to Judith and Nuura for coming with us

Yr 5 Mock Election
We were very interested in the General Election in Year 5 so we decided to have a mini 'mock election' in class. We researched the main points and beliefs from each party's manifesto and produced posters. Each of the party leaders then delivered a speech and, after careful deliberation, the whole class voted. After the official count, George, our public speaker, informed the class that negotiations were needed to see if the Conservatives could form a minority government because they hadn't own with a majority vote. The final result was that the Conservative party joined a coalition with the Green Party and SNP. Well done Year 5!

Year 1 were very lucky to be able to visit the Museum of Florence Nightingale on the 8th December which is in the same location as St Thomas hospital, a hospital that she set up after she came back from Turkey where she helped soldiers from the Crimean war. 'Florence' was there to meet us at the entrance and spoke about her life using a few extras from Year 1 to play the part of the significant people in her life. We then learnt about the food she introduced and the equipment she used to make the hospital a more hygienic place during activities based around the museum. On the way to the museum we were lucky enough to walk over Westminster bridge where we had a good view of the London Eye and the houses of parliament. A fantastic trip!

We went for an Autumn walk on Primrose Hill and studied a variety of trees (Oak, Hornbeam, Whitebeam, London Plane, Ash and Beech). We took clipboards up to the hill and jotted down our initial poetic thoughts, trying to use personification to describe what we saw. We then thought about the wind, sun and ground. When we got back to class we incorporated these ideas into an Autumn poem.
