Year 6 Literacy and trip to the Tower of London

This half term Year 6 are reading the book ‘Gangsta Granny.’ To help prepare them for future writing tasks based around the book the children carried out ‘Operation Selfie’ in school. Their target was to sneak into the head teacher’s office and take a selfie in her chair. This was a task the children took to heart and came up with some very creative disguises to help them carry out surveillance on her office. They dressed up as- delivery men, OFSTED inspectors, teachers, musicians and we even had children hidden inside boxes with spy holes cut in them.
We also went to the Tower of London to see the Crown Jewels and attended a workshop all about crime and punishment.

Year 4 trip to British Museum

On Wednesday 8th June, Year 4 went on a trip to the British Museum to see the Ancient Egyptian exhibitions. The children were extremely excited before the visit and were definitely not disappointed. They loved looking at all of the impressive and often towering statues. The mummy galleries were a particular favourite with the children (we had to warn them to be very quiet in case they woke the mummies up) !!

RE curriculum day

On Friday 27th May we had an RE curriculum day where we explored prayer. We looked at how, why, where and when people pray. We considered the role of prayer in our lives and what we pray for. Mr Rawding created an amazing prayer space in the hall where children had the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of activities designed to help them explore prayer in a variety of ways. More photographs of our RE day can be found on the RE page of this website under the “Curriculum” tab at the top of the page.

Giant walking bus!

On Wednesday May 18th over 200 pupils from Latymer All Saints participated in a giant walking bus to promote the benefits of walking to school and road safety. The event provided a great opportunity for community cohesion with 3 other schools from the local area taking part. The children loved the fact that they got to meet the recently appointed Mayor of Enfield, Bernadette Lappage, who also joined us on our journey. Despite the wet weather the event was a great success and we all hope to participate again next year!

YEAR FIVE STUDENTS VISIT TO THE TAYLOR WIMPEY BUILDING SITE IN GOFFS OAK

Our year five children visited Goffs Oak on 4th February as part of their learning about business week.  They buried a time capsule which will be opened, hopefully in a hundred years. It contained a school jumper, a class picture, books, school certificates, a camera and a shoe to say the least.  They also learned quite a bit about the houses that were being built by Taylor Wimpey and how they support low income housing as well as the high end of the market. Click on the link below the photograph to read the press release from Taylor Wimpey.
