We started the week with a visit from Mr Thompson from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
Year 1 did some lovely work outdoors weaving natural and man-made materials.
Year 5 brought their bikes to school for Bike-ability week.
Our art journalling course started. This is a lovely opportunity for parents and their children to be creative and spend quality time together.
In assembly Mrs Geddes asked the children in KS2 what they wanted to be when they were adults. The children said things like 'a doctor', 'a lifeguard', 'a scientist', 'a paralympian', 'a reporter.' Then she asked them how St Meryl helped them prepare for adult life. The children said that learning maths and science and how to read and write were really important but so also were things like learning to be resilient and learning how to co-operate and be friends with others.
It was the turn of Year 2 to perform their class assembly. They told us all about
the history of space exploration and performed a lovely song, accompanied by the glockenspiels about friendship.
Year 4 made the sandwiches they had researched and designed.
Another of our whole-school maths day. Miss Marshall talked to us about how maths is everywhere and we thought about what the world would be like without it. You can access her presentation on the maths page of this website.
