Form 1 participated in a drama workshop, the children were taken on an adventure back in time. They picked up clues and learnt all about dinosaurs. At the end of the workshop, they had a chance to tell and act out their dinosaur adventure story. They children were engaged throughout and loved the learning about dinosaurs.
Form 5 attended a ‘Coding Workshop’ at the Apple Store in Westfields. Children had the opportunity to use an iPad to program a Sphero (spherical robot) around a Maze. The children persevered thorough the challenge and used their problem solving skills to program the Sphero.
Form 1 had a wonderful time exploring the Wetland Centre. We had a workshop on plants, where the children learnt how to identify plants by their leaves. They had a chance to collect different types of leaves as well, which they loved doing. We were then able to walk around the wetland centre, and were lucky enough to see lots of wildlife including; Otters, Ducks and Geese
On Wednesday 6 June Form 6 went to Kew to visit the National Archives. Not only did they learn about the history of the archives, including one unusual object, the mummified body of a Victorian rat that started the whole idea of having our important documents in one place, but they also considered ‘what is history?’ The girls were absorbed by examining and working out what was going on in the photo of one woman who was eventually correctly identified as a suffragette. They went on to explore other documents and pictures dating from the 1500s to the 1940s including; a plea roll from Henry VIII’s reign. There was a mill register and a prison register from the 1800s that brought home how harsh a childhood many people had, a map of derelict London from 1667 (what was the significance of that date?) and a census document showing Queen Victoria aged 31 living in Buckingham Palace together with the many housemaids, pages and even a clock polisher.
On Wednesday, Form 6 spent the morning at the Royal Courts of Justice. They learnt about the different civil and criminal courts which make up our justice system and about the various roles within a courtroom. They then re-enacted a real case, Crown vs Selina Khan. Witnesses were cross-examined and the jury considered the evidence – returning a Not Guilty verdict. Many thanks to our expert parent helpers (all of them real-life solicitors!) who made the visit so much more interesting and informative.
Form 6’s annual residential visit to PGL Little Canada took place in warm sunshine last week. The girls departed excited last Monday morning and returned exhausted on Friday! Their days were packed with adventurous activities including abseiling, quad biking, climbing and canoeing – and all of them grew in confidence and skill as they faced each new challenge. The staff at PGL were full of appreciation and praise for their good behaviour and friendliness – and we should congratulate them on being such a credit to CBPPS.
Reception S delighted pupils and parents with their class assembly on Friday 18 May 2018.
The children took the audience on a tour around Old Macdonald’s farm where they met cows, sheep, horses and pigs. They then re-told story of the three little pigs and the very scary big bad wolf. The children sang and acted brilliantly. Well Done Reception S.
The nursery children had so much fun celebrating the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. They prepared cream cheese and cucumber sandwiches and decorated cakes with red, white and blue icing. The children played party games and enjoyed sitting together to eat the delicious food.
