  • On the Right Road

    Published 18/04/24

    Today, the Wizard Theatre Company visited Year 2 children and delivered a play about the different ways children can make their journey to school. The actors were hilarious, and we even had a workshop and quiz with a famous presenter named Wavy Davy (who isn't really famous!).

    We learnt some interesting information today. For instance, it's not illegal to ride a bike without a helmet, but it is illegal if the bike doesn't have front and back brakes. Furthermore, we learnt that it's not allowed for anyone to stand on the top deck of the bus, among many other fun facts.

  • Brentford FC Workshop

    Published 09/02/24

    In the last week of an exceptionally busy half term, we had an amazing workshop delivered by Marcus Gayle and Bevan Vincent from Brentford FC. The focus was on equality and diversity and was very thought provoking. We had time to reflect on how we put this in practice in our everyday lives; both in and out of school. The pair were so friendly and down to earth, we felt comfortable discussing difficult topics and think about how we could resolve situations that arise. In fact our only complaint was that the time flew by so fast!

    Don't take just my word for it - see what our Year 6 pupils thought:

  • Year 6 RAF Bunker Visit

    Published 31/01/24

    This half term Year 6 have been learning about World War Two. We have focused on what part the bunker at RAF Uxbridge played in the Battle of Britain. And what better way to learn than to visit the place where it all happened? On our trip, we were told about the brave men and women who worked at the bunker. As the location of No. 11 Group RAF's Operations Room, The Battle of Britain Bunker was invaluable in defending Britain's airspace. We travelled back in time, descending into the bunker itself and exploring the visitor centre to understand what pivotal decisions were made to prevent Operation Sea Lion. Without these momentous contributions, we would be living in a very different world today.

    Noah (Attenborough) - My favourite part was inside the bunker because it was fun to see all the stuff and what happened in the war. 

    Sindy (Attenborough) -This trip was very exciting and told us lots of interesting facts about how World War II started and how the Battle of Britain took place. 

    Gabi (Anderson) - My experience today was awesome! It really gave me an image of WW2. I find it interesting to learn what used to happen in the bunker and don't want it to happen again. I learnt that back then, dresses were made out of left-over parachutes because there was a ration on fabric.

    Olivia ( Attenborough) - I think the trip to the bunker was fun because we got to exp0lore different artefacts from that period of time.

    Kaif (Attenborough) - My favourite part of the museum because of all the guns, tanks, equipment that we could see close up. 

    Rhomel (Attenborough) - The best bit was when we got to see the p[lotting table (where Winston Churchill stood) as the Battle of Britain began.

    Isla (Attenborough) - I liked the part where we got to listen to phones warning  of air raids and the damage caused and trying on the RAF uniforms.
