Year 9s visit National Army Museum

Tags : 

As part of their studies of First World War poetry, and to coincide with Remembrance events at school, we took all our Year 9s to the newly renovated National Army Museum in Chelsea on the 13th of November. Pupils got the chance to handle genuine artefacts from real First World War soldiers and were lucky enough to do a poetry workshop based around the objects with a published poet and a poet who was also a serving soldier!


Year 8s take a trip to Burnham Beeches

On October 10th, our Year 8 pupils visited Burnham Beeches Wood in Buckinghamshire as part of their study of geology in science. They explored the woodlands and observed geological soil layering, ancient sites of clay mining for bricks, quagmires and areas where sinkholes exist!

In addition, pupils learned about pollarding trees and how the woods are being managed and preserved for future generations. They took soil samples at different locations around the trail and these will be analysed back in school for their pH, texture, and profile. This information will then be related to the dominant trees found growing in each sampled area.

A challenging and exciting day rooted in fun!

On the 28th February, Sotheby’s sold Picasso’s Femme au béret et à la robe quadrillée for a record £50 million. Thanks to an invitation from a parent, our Year 5 pupils were able to go see the incredible works of art sold at Sotheby’s that evening, hours before the historic sale.

Pupils also had the opportunity to admire Picasso’s Matador, as well as works by Giacometti, Magritte, and Derain.
