Reminder: Swimming tomorrow

Just a quick reminder that all of Year 3 are doing a swimming assessment tomorrow at JAGS swimming pool. Please ensure they have their swimming costume, towel and a swimming hat (if possible), as well as a healthy snack for after the swim. For ease in getting changed, if possible, could you send them in to school with their swimming costume under their clothes. If your child is not able to swim 25 metres confidently then they will be asked to attend the swimming sessions for the rest of the week. You will be notified on Monday afternoon if your child needs to attend these sessions.

Many thanks

Sports Day Snaps!

A big thankyou to Mr Cranston for organising such a fun sports day and to all the parents that came down to support. I also feel very proud that 3CV gained the title for strongest class in the tug of war! Well done!


Tomorrow all parents and carers are invited into school from 2.30pm to work with their children and look through their books.

Parents will also get the opportunity to see the ‘storyscapes in a shoebox’ that the children created during art week. The KS2 creations will be in the KS2 Hall.

Entry to the school will be via the Turney Road gate only.

Sports Day is taking place on Friday at the Rosendale Road Playing Fields. The timings are as follows:

  • KS2 children will arrive at the field for a whole school picnic lunch at 12 noon – please note that the reception children will return to school for their picnic – unless you sign your child out;
  • Staff / Parent races at 12.30pm,
  • KS2 races commence at 1pm.
  • KS2 children can come in their PE kit but there will be a chance for them to get changed. Please make sure that your child brings a water bottle and if it is hot they will also need a hat and sunscreen.

The school will provide a packed lunch to all those who have a school dinner, and to those who receive free school meals. Children who normally have a packed lunch will need to bring their own packed lunch.

We really hope that parents and carers will join us for the picnic, and that some of you will even participate in the races. After Sports day you may take your child home but will need to sign them out with the class teacher.

This week in class

Can you believe there is only 12 days left until the children head into year 4? It feels like only yesterday that they walked through the classroom door to start in 3CV. This week has been a super busy week.

In Maths we have been learning about volume and capacity. Did you know that the capacity of an object is the amount of liquid it holds but the volume of an object is what amount is currently inside the container? The children have learnt to read scales and add amounts of liquid together.

In English we have finished our topic on animals. We learnt what vertebrates are and even invented our own! We carried out an experiment to test whether certain body types were better at different activities e.g are people with longer legs faster than people with shorter legs? We will compile our results for that test next week.

Over the next couple of weeks we have some dates for your diary.

July 11th – Open afternoon in the classroom at 2.30pm
July 12th – Sports day
July 15th – 19th swimming lessons for children who need to be able to swim 25metres.
July 17th – Ukulele concert ay 2pm in the sports hall
July 22nd – Picnic in Brockwell park 12-2.30pm
July 23rd – Last day of term.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine.

Languages day

Today we got to eat some croissant, have a Spanish lesson with students from Charter School and learn some mandarin in our assembly! A great language day!

Museum of London

Yesterday we went to the Museum of London to extend our learning on the Romans. We got to observe and touch real life roman artefacts and guess what they were used for.
