Year 6 were given the opportunity to attend a Junior Citizen workshop at Stanmore Community Centre. At this workshop, they took part in a carousel of activities. Included in this, were sessions from two of our emergency services. The met some police officer and discussed gang culture, they then took part in a session with the fire brigade, learning about fire safety and what to do in the event of a house fire. They also had an opportunity to hear from TFL, where they were taught how to behave on public transport. It was an engaging morning, which will be a great benefit to the children.

Tue 12TH June 2018 - Roxbourne Skipping Workshop

On Tuesday, Roxbourne took part in a day of skipping to encourage fitness. We were visited by Skip2bFit and each class took part in a 30 minute activity which involved skipping and having an opportunity to beat their personal best. At the end of the day children received certificates for effort and achievement as well as a face off between Miss Sayed and Mr Elliott Rey, who were the highest scoring teachers. After a minute of intense competition, Miss Sayed came out on top after completing more skips in a minute. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day for staff and pupils and is something the children will continue to do on a weekly basis.

Tues 12TH June 2018 - Year 3 Visit to London Zoo

Year 3 went to London Zoo and saw lots of animals. We went to the ‘Nightlife’ enclosure and it was really dark and creepy! In the ‘Into Africa’ part we saw really tall giraffes and scary lions. We saw all sorts of predators, reptiles and birds. Everyone really enjoyed seeing the animals we have been studying in class. We didn’t want to come home! - written by 3M

Wed 23RD May 2018 - Music In May

Music In May 2018
St Andrew's Church

On Wednesday, nearly 100 children spent the day at St Andrew’s Church rehearsing for our annual concert: Music in May! Children from Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 arrived at 9.00am with their many instruments, including cellos, clarinets, flutes, guitars, a trombone, trumpets and violins. They spent the morning rehearsing their music and songs and in the afternoon, there was a full run through of the programme so that everybody knew when they were playing and where they had to be!

At 6.30pm the children arrived full of excitement and ready to perform. The audience had the pleasure of watching solo, small group performances and also our school band and orchestra perform. The choir performed songs including Turn to Me and Every Cloud has a Silver Lining. The instrumentalists played pieces including the Witches Cauldron, Chunk of Funk, Violin Star, and We’re off to see the Wizard. Band played three pieces including Blueberry Train. Orchestra played four pieces including Lord of the Rings. The evening concluded with everyone joining in with Three Lions. The children commented on how they enjoyed themselves. The behaviour of the children throughout the day was impeccable. Thank you parents for all of your support and also thank you to the staff who gave up their time to help in the evening.

If your child would like to play an instrument next year a letter will be sent out after half-term!

The Year 4s especially enjoyed watching their teachers fall over and over again!

Ramadan 2018

A letter was sent home earlier this week, to notify families who might be observing Ramadan of the school’s position on fasting. If you are considering allowing your child to fast, please ensure permission slips are returned to school on Monday and please consider half-day fast (until morning break time at 10:25 or lunchtime at 12:00). Finally, we wish everyone observing Ramadan a blessed time of fasting. Ramadan Mubarak!
