Term 5 2023-24

Mini Vinnies: BookSwap


ART: Yayoi Kusama

This term we are exploring the Japanese contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama. She works primarily in sculpture and installation, and is also active in painting, performance, video art, fashion, poetry and fiction, to name but a few. She is known by many as the princess of polka dots and is noted to have been influential to many artists, such as, Andy Warhol,  who we have previously studied. We decided to use Yayoi’s flower sculptures as inspiration for our own creations.

RE: The rosary - Online

We joined over 10,000 children across the Archdiocese of Southwark online for The rosary prayers, led by Archbishop John Wilson live from the Norte Dame Secondary School in Southwark. 

“The rosary is so powerful because of Our Lady, we are led to Christ. Praying the rosary, in classrooms and in our homes, helps us to realise the beauty of our Catholic faith and helps us to draw closer to the Lord Jesus”




RE: Crowning Mary

We were so honoured to be a part of the celebrations for the Crowning of Mary. Lead by Key Stage 1 we listened to the prayers and thanks for our special Lady. We created flowers to adorn her statue.

RE: Fisher Family Trust Assembly

We were very lucky to have the people from Fisher Family Trust, come in to conduct an assembly for the whole school. We really enjoyed learning about Ruth’s Story and learning the actions to their new song.

Science: Living Things and Their Habitats - The process of reproduction in plants


RE: Pentecost

We have started our new topic for this term - Pentecost.

We have been enhancing our knowledge with the stories of the Road to Emmaus and Damascus. It has been interesting to learn how our faith as a religion began. Taking a deeper look and reflecting on the actions of the key individuals has helped us to gain a greater understanding of our own faith and how it can and has changed our daily lives. 


We are continuing with the brilliant Soccer Academy during our PE Sessions. These are teaching us how to work as a team, confidence on and off the pitch and strengthening our hand eye coordination.


During this term we have started our Tutor Program for up-levelling our times tables skill base. We are having so much fun sharing our knowledge, coming up with games and different ways of learning our time tables. This is such an invaluable skill to acquire, which will set us in good stead for our mathematical lessons now and in the future.
