It was fantastic to see so many parents and carers join us for Science Discovery Day on Tuesday.
Everyone was engaged in the activities and experiments that were set up in our school garden. What a great day of fun and learning was had by all!
We were truly impressed by the range of home learning this year. Fantastic projects and science investigations were shared in all classes. Children also watched some exciting experiments about changes in energy demonstrated during assembly in the afternoon by Mother Nature Science Company.
A Prayer for Father’s Day
Walk a Little Slower
“Walk a little slower, Daddy!” said a little child so small.
“I’m following in your footsteps and I don’t want to fall.
Sometimes your steps are very fast; sometimes they’re hard to see;
So walk a little slower Daddy, for you are leading me.
Someday when I’m all grown up, you’re what I want to be.
Then I will have a little child who will want to follow me.
And I would want to lead just right, and know that I was true;
So walk a little slower, Daddy, for I must follow you!”
World Book Day 2017
World Book Day arrived at the Convent of Jesus and Mary Infant School & Nursery, this special day is celebrated all over the world!
There were many new characters in our school to celebrate World Book Day . The whole school was overtaken ... even the teachers seemed to have taken on new roles!
It was literally standing room only in our school hall as the pupils, staff and parents celebrated their love of reading.
Jack and the Beans Talk
We were all inspired by Garlic Theatre’s production of Jack and the Bean’s Talk, an unusual version of the old tale. The Year 2 pupils stayed on after the performance and had a talk from the producer about the puppetry and tricks involved in the production.
Birdwatch / Falconry UK
What an enjoyable time the girls and boys had when Falconry UK visited to share a range of exotic birds with us. Mrs Saiz, Leader for Science is so pleased that many have done projects on birds at home with their families.
They will all be displayed in school.
Act Of Worship
Friday 17th June, 2016
We would like to welcome our
Fathers and Grandfathers
to join us in our classrooms for an Act of Worship. Please join us to take part in prayer and
rejoice in our learning.
Stay and Play!
We have set up a range of activities for Dads and
Granddads to share with their children and grandchildren after the Acts of Worship in:
· the garden,
· the playground,
· the Claudine Room
· the Blue Hall
· and the main hall
We celebrated Father’s Day by having an Act of Worship in each of our classrooms. Afterwards, our Fathers and Grandfathers (and some Mothers and Grandmothers as well) had a Stay and Play.
There were numerous activities set up all around the school and in the school grounds. Painting/making portraits of dad, Big Block construction, making flags, basketball shoots and football games, remote-controlled devices, spinners, a dark den, the water zone, making bubbles and two-person skiing were just a few! Come and take a look at all the fun we had celebrating how much we love our Fathers and Grandfathers!
Our Father’s Day Banner and Message Book
We wrote messages to our Fathers and Grandfathers on our Father’s Day Banner and in our Message Book. We also drew around our hands and the hands of our dads!
The banner and book are on display in the school.
Come and read a few of the comments written about our Father’s Day Act of Worship and the Stay and Play Activities!
Easter Bonnet Parade March 2016
On the last day of term we had our Easter Bonnet parade in the hall. There was so much colour and creativity on show. A big thank you to the children and their parents and carers for making such a wonderful effort. The prizes for the best bonnets were kindly donated by Sainsbury’s Willesden Green.
Have a happy and restful Easter everybody.
This is how some children critiqued the show.
“My favourite part was when the Chancellor wanted to collect 8 gold coins from George but gobbled up instead.”
Jenell from Oak Tree Class
“The dragon almost came over and ate me but I think they worked really hard to make the show.”
Shaun from Maple Tree Class
“I liked the dragon because it had so many details; it looked almost real.”
Isabella from Willow Tree Class
“I was scared when the puppet sunk into the bag; it made a strange noise and the screaming scared me.”
Connor from Willow Tree Class
“The funny ending was very good, especially when George and Princess Eleanor hugged.”
Kelly from Oak Tree Class
“The Princess liked George because he killed the dragon and no one else could kill it so they kissed and they were really happy.” Suvena from Lime Tree Class
“I liked when the Queen was talking to the chancellor; she was very post.”
Grace from Willow Tree Class.
“All the Chancellor cared about was the gold. “
Olivia from Maple Tree Class
“I liked when George used his sword to kill the dragon.”
Oskar from Ash Tree Class
“ I thought that Princess elanour was a beautiful puppet.”
Julia form Chestnut Tree Class
“’George and the Dragon’ was great. I liked the part of the dragon when he roared and when George fought the dragon. I really liked when they said that in Brazil the dragon wanted to eat the moon.” Ruda from Beach Tree Class
