Year 1 children have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and at the Natural History Museum today, the exhibition showed them the real life different stages of the cycle. Butterflies landed on them and were able to see a butterfly which had just hatched from a chrysalis.

Today we were very lucky to have the Camarilla Ensemble perform for Key Stage 2. This performance was presented by the Cavatina Chamber Music Trust. Children learnt all about the instruments, the pieces performed and some were even invited up to conduct the musicians.

Out local partners NBC Universal hosted 6 classes to view Dr Seuss’ ‘The Lorax’ in 3D today at their private screens at Central Saint Giles. From this we have some great ideas for our budding ‘Green Team.’ At the same time we were very lucky to have lots of volunteers from NBC come to school to paint our playground. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity NBC!

The whole school celebrated St George’s Day by learning about both the history and the legend of Saint George. From art to poetry, to biographies and drama; each class presented their learning in our special celebration worship this afternoon. Here is the class poem produced by Year 5.
Please listen well to our tale,
Of a knight who simply refused to fail.
Slaying the dragon was a terrifying test,
but he knew he had to accomplish the quest!
Now George the Knight was brave and bold
and many tales of him are told,
Of how he rode about the land
to see where he could lend a hand.
George liked to help in any way
He could, but never asked for pay
and if he found someone in trouble
he’d ride and help them at the double.
It’s said that George would only fight
for what he knew was good and right.
One day he heard a tale so sad
Of something truly very bad.
A dragon, breathing fire and smoke
Was terrorising country folk,
destroying crops, polluting waters
and even gobbling up their daughters!
“We can’t have this,” said George the Bold,
“That dragon really must be told
to go away. His tricks must cease
he has to leave this town in peace.”
But everyone was rather scared
Of dragons in fact, no one dared,
to try to get the beast to stop
destroying wood, field and crop.
So George put on his armour bright
and said that he would go and fight
that dragon fierce, but then George would,
always fight for what was so right.
He wasn’t feeling very brave
but knew that he should try to save,
the people of that troubled place.
He knew the dragon he must face.
Now this might seem to you quite shocking
but George was scared, his knees were knocking,
and George was brave so faced his foe
although he didn’t want to go.
Then while he fought, his terror vanished,
and soon that dragon he had banished.
Now we can be like George the Knight,
and always fight for what is right.
And though we may feel frail and scared
we should remember that George dared
to go and fight, despite his fears.
He didn’t run away in tears.
And we can do the same. Be strong
and fight against all that is wrong
and when life puts us to the test,
then we should try and do our best.
Saint George who fought evil in every way,
On this dark and dull April day,
He slayed the dragon with his sword,
Good conquered evil, praise the Lord!
