 Into University

On Monday 25th March, Leopards class had a very informative and engaging session at Into University. The children learnt:
• The location of the universities in the UK
• what life at University would be like
• the range of subjects they could choose to study at University
• the career path they might choose
• the extra-curricular activities offered
• and how they would need to become independent and live away from home
The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and now look forward to the follow up in May.


During Book Week, 4th March to 8th March, Leopards class had great fun!
We looked at book illustrations and particularly the work of Jeff Kinney, author and illustrator of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It was interesting to find out how he started his career and where he found his inspiration. Our class also studied his style of drawing and we produced our own drawings using his techniques.
Dressing up day was fun and there were lots of brilliant costumes on display!
We had an illustration workshop with Portia, using the medium of chalk. We learnt many skills, including, there is no right or wrong in Art, every piece of work is unique to us.

During the first half of the Spring term, every Wednesday afternoon, half of Leopards class went to the Farm Lane Care Home to spend some quality time with the elderly residents. They  did some arts and crafts and some drama workshops.
Finally they performed ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ for the residents. ​

Leopards class visit Metro Bank

As part of the PSHE curriculum; Money- saving and spending, Year 5 had a series of visits from Metro Bank explaining the work of the Bank.
The sessions culminated in a visit to Metro Bank on Fulham High Street on 11th October 2018. The children had a chance to see the bank vault where the public can store their valuables, had a look at the cash machines and meet the Bank’s mascot!
Thank you to Metro Bank for giving us such an informative session!

As a part of our launch day, Y5 experimented with playdoh. They were trialling two different methods (pinching and coiling), in preparation for creating their Grecian pots, using clay. The children preferred different methods and a wide range of pot shapes. They are looking forward to creating their pots from clay in the coming weeks.
