Trip to St Thomas More Comprehensive School
Science is all around us!
Today we had an exciting opportunity to go to St Thomas More Comprehensive school. We went into the science lab and had a chance to investigate which everyday objects are magnetic, using real magnets. Then we learnt about chromatography, where we looked at the different colours made when mixing different solutions together.
Our Lenten Promises
Lent is upon us. Lent is a special time of the year. We know that Lent is more than giving up something we love for 40 days. Jesus was tempted for 40 days, we know that we can be tempted in life. Therefore during Lent we think about how we can follow in God's footsteps. We created a Lent Traffic Light Prayer. For red we thought about one thing we are going to try to stop to do. For amber we thought about something we can get better at during this Holy season of renewal. Then for green we thought about a kind deed we are going to try to keep on doing, to show that we can follow in God's footsteps.
Trip to Old Royal Naval College
Maths is Everywhere!
Today we went to the Old Royal Naval College. What a beautiful place! We went into the Chapel, we looked at the amazing paintings and architecture inside the Chapel and explored the patterns and shapes within the art work. Then we created our own geometric patterns using shapes and explored the symmetry within these patterns. Then as a part of our Local History, we learnt about the history of the Old Royal Naval College and even had a chance to play a bowling match using an old Skittle Valley.

Visit to Horniman Museum
In science we have been learning about animals in their natural habitats. So today we visited the Horniman Museum. We looked around the museum and saw lots of animal skeletons and taxidermy. Then, during a workshop, we looked at different taxidermy animals in their habitats and learnt how they have adapted to their habitat. We ended our day with a trip around the animal walk.
