On 4th December Year 5 participated in the London Chess Classic at Olympia.
The class have been learning chess, with their tutor Mr Costello, since September and have made amazing progress. T
he day at Olympia was great fun and the children enjoyed meeting Grandmasters and learning some new tactics.
In the afternoon they played Chess against other schools from London and were very successful, winning four bronze medals and three silver ones – the best result we have ever had! Well done Year 5!
Years 3, 4, 5 & 6 were involved in a two-day Computer Science workshop ‘Conducting Music’ run by Thames Music. Using a Micro:bit and LED’s pupils coded to make music.
Some pupils in Year 6 quoted:
Year 5 have been studying The Great War as their topic this term. We were very lucky to receive a visit from Corporal Ben Ravel from the Royal Fusiliers – just on leave from the trenches of France!
Corporal Ben came to tell the children all about his experiences at the front.
We would like to thank Mr Woodcock for arranging this visit for us.
