We will be celebrating children’s achievements and efforts as usual on a Friday morning. Each teacher will nominate two or three children from their class and we hope as the weeks go by all children will be given at least one mention. We hope you enjoy what we share.
As part of Windrush Day, Team 6 have been learning about Akala (Kingslee James McLean Daley) who is a British rapper, journalist, author, activist and poet. A few years ago he appeared on BBC Radio 1Xtra and was challenged to come up with a rap containing as many Shakespeare play titles as he could manage, which became known as Comedy, Tragedy, History. Team 6 took up the challenge to learn some of this immensely difficult song and to create their very own version. I am immensely proud of their determination and the focus they placed on articulating the lyrics. In particular, I have to mention Joshua I, Abraham, Esther and Eathan.
Joshua I – He really focused on slowing the words down in order to create maximum impact. He was articulate and really knew what he wanted his performance to contain.
Abraham – Despite initially appearing a little unimpressed, Abraham committed to learning his lyrics and performed them beautifully – complete with effective facial expressions.
Esther – Rapping is a tremendously difficult skill and Esther initially struggled to get her words out clearly. However, with practice, she not only learned her lyrics but also delivered them with aplomb!
Eathan – What can I say – Eathan is a complete natural! His lyrics were so speedy, yet he delivered them passionately and articulately. Well done!
Richard & Chioma for making really exceptional links between our Zoom time story and other books that we have read in class to this point. It was such a joy speaking to all of the Year 5 members who joined the story session from home; it really made Ms Omoboni’s day.
Ariana & Treasure have started back to school this week and have been absolutely focused, engaged and energetic. They have led the learning really well and we have found that Treasure is a whizz kid at our oracy challenge game!
Jesse- for his detailed drawing of a Roman solider and his hard work in Maths, based around Roman Numerals.
Nazirah gets a special mention this week for her home learning based around Roman research. A very clear and well presented piece of work, well done!
Gary- for his continued hard work with his home learning. Gary has managed to send over work for every week since home learning began, what a superstar!
Team 2 would like to nominate Jevon. He has been consistent with his learning and it is always of a high standard very proud of him!
I would also like to nominate Natailia this week. I am so proud of Natalia for continuing to complete her home learning. Her mum has said that she has done much of it on her own as mum and dad are working from home. She has also been helping her little brother with his learning. What a mature, helpful and focused superstar she is!
Chavona – who started back at school this week with a great smile and attitude! It was lovely to see her happiness and her eagerness to continue her learning.
Harmony – who’s thoughts and ideas have been vital in our wellbeing sessions during the week. It’s very refreshing to hear some of the things she suggests and super impressive given her young age!
Anaiyah – a few weeks ago I mentioned that Anaiyah was struggling to maintain her motivation for completing home learning as the weeks have gone by however, I am super happy to report that this has changed! I have been super impressed with the quality of work I have consistently been receiving from Aniayah since then! Keep up the amazing work! I’m very proud of you!
Mateo – I was so impressed when I logged into BusyThings this week and saw all of the beautiful artwork Mateo has produced alongside his work on ordering numbers. This was not work set by myself and it was such a pleasant surprise. Well done!
Karissa – As a school, we are so proud of Marcus Rashford in his quest to support children. Karissa has created this beautiful photograph as a way of saying thank you!
Jo -I am well aware that Jo was only mentioned recently, but he honestly deserves another mention this week. He has made the most incredible contributions to class discussions regarding how broadcasters are an influence over the public and should therefore be using this power to build a better society. Please keep it up Jo!
This week we’d really like to celebrate the amazing artwork completed by Erica, Reabb, Chioma, Habib, Edsay and Adam. The task was to create a model of a London landmark using any art form and I was so impressed with the results – particularly with the landmarks created using Minecraft. We certainly have a class full of engineers of the future – look at the photos and be wowed! We’re also very proud of the work done by Adam and Elkanah and their mums on work to do with the London Underground. Lastly (it’s been a great week for Team 5), we’d like to congratulate Yazmin for her wonderful portrayal of a poem we have studied about one man’s experience of England when he moved here from the Caribbean.
Alex, Honey and Leona for creating brilliant Roman shields!
Shian and Shamoya for creating fantastic Roman amulets !
I was very happy to welcome back some of the Year 1 students this week! It was so lovely seeing them after such a long time! I have missed them all so much and I can’t wait to see everyone else as well!
Renee & Annika – for coming back with a great attitude and readiness to continue their learning! I was so impressed with their input and sharing of ideas – I can’t wait to see what they will achieve over the next few weeks!
Mya-Rose – for coming to school everyday with a BIG smile on her face! She has made me smile this week with her positivity! My heart needed it!

This week I nominate:
All of the Team 6 children who returned this week! Despite things looking a little different, everyone had settled into the new routine and refocused on the learning by the second day. I am immensely proud of their ability to adapt to change and their desire to learn – it has been wonderful.
Chanice – Over the past couple of days Chanice has once again found her voice and has been making thoughtful contributions to our class discussions regarding the Black Lives Matter movement. She is a deep thinker and I have really missed hearing her ideas. Please keep it up!
Anaiah – As our new topic is ‘Read all about it’, we have been focusing on how different stories are portrayed by the media. We had a lengthy discussion about why it is essential that news broadcasters challenge people in power and hold them to account. Anaiah then wrote about the importance of journalists in informing the public and aiding people in power to make the right choices!
I have these nominations for Team 5 sharing assembly this week:
There has been lots of amazing work through from Team 5 this week and we are all enjoying our new topic of ‘London’. Well done to all of Team 5.
Imara and Habib have been doing such an amazing job of keeping up with our home learning and the home learning for their Westminster Platform sessions which they are now completing online. We’re always so impressed by their dedication and proud of them representing the school. You can see from the photo that all of our Westminster Platform representatives love to read and this has really helped them through their learning.
Joanna has been showing great kindness and a positive attitude in school. These are character traits that will serve her well for all of her life and make her a joy to be around.
Naledi has created some wonderful sentences about the London Eye for English this week and pushed herself with ambitious punctuation and sentence structure. We love the fact that she’s trying it out and taking risks. (Photo attached).
David brings tremendous joy to his Team 5 adults when they speak to him on the phone as he remains so bubbly, cheerful and beautifully mannered. All of the Team 5 children have been fabulous to talk with and show great telephone manner but David’s smile somehow makes it through the sound waves and leaves a positive feeling for a long time after the phone has been put down.
Hello everyone! As more and more students continue to return to school, we are so proud of all the work that continues to happen in the classroom and at home! It is important that we continue to balance our learning time and our personal time! Please continue to send in pictures of all the wonderful new skills and hobbies you are doing at home, as learning takes many forms!

Esere has been exploring the library on ReadWorks and finding fun articles and stories about things he is interested in, such as; space, animals, food, history, etc. It is great to see what he is reading and reading his notes afterwards, we look forward to him sharing more thoughts about what he reads!
Science – I would like to nominate Chioma for her Science work in Botany. She has been exploring the outdoors as well as doing her work indoors. I am pleased to see that she is taking in the nature around her to really understand the difference between trees, shrubs, and herbs. She is also linking this to Greek history and making connections in her learning.
RE and Humanities– I would like to nominate Phoenix for his continued resilience in his learning. Phoenix always tries his hardest and is not afraid to ask for help when he needs it. He has been using many resources online to support his learning and has stayed focused throughout this period.
Arts – I would like to nominate Michai for always being creative and having so much fun with Art lessons. Whether it be painting, drawing, sculpting, or even a comic strip, Michai will always make it exciting and colourful. He loves doing art and his effort shows in every piece he completes. It is great to see him continuing with Art while he is at home!
For this week I would like to give a special mention Harmony and Anaiyah. They have both found it hard to keep motivated during this period, as the weeks have gone on. I had a great phone call with them both earlier this week and I just wanted to reassure them that while I understand their feelings, I’m proud of them and I will always encourage to keep working and reach their full potential! They are both incredibly capable and I can’t wait to see more of their home learning via email! I believe in you girls!

With so much happening in the world currently, it’s important that we take the time to celebrate positivity! I am immensely proud of how dedicated and committed our students are, not only to their education, but to making an impact in the world.
Maths – I would like to nominate Olamide for her creativity with her learning. She has used her knowledge of fractions and measuring, to bake a pizza independently. I was so pleased to see all the pictures of how she divided up her vegetables using fractions, the pattern work for the pepperoni, the measurements for her dough.

- Edsay for his ‘Scale it up’ maths work. He really understood the process and explained it clearly.

He also provided some great information about the populations of the countries in the Caribbean. (pictures attached).
- And Reabb for the most beautiful portrait of her sister, Sossna created in the colourful style of our Caribbean artist study, Brianna McCarthy. The picture is really stunning as a whole and the colours selected work very well together creating harmony across the whole piece. For those of us who know Sossna, we can see the likeness instantly!

- Art – In art I would also like to nominate Mia. She has made a beautiful mask to wear to an Elizabethen ball! Mia had some trouble getting started with the home learning a few weeks ago, but both her and her mum were so determined to get on with her learning. We have been using Google translate to go back and forth and I am truly impressed by their perseverance in the matter! Excited to see how her learning has a positive impact on her English learning skills as well!

Here are pictures from. a Tudors book he created that encompasses all his learning and something he thought of and created independently!

She created several different Easter bunnies (thank you mum for sending over the pictures) but I was very impressed with how she brought him to life (see attached picture). Well done Akayla for a very creative week!
- Chiamaka – Chiamaka won the skipping rope challenge on Sports Relief day and so it came as no surprise to me when mum sent over a picture of Chiamaka brushing up her skills! I’m glad she is spending some time outside, enjoying the lovely sun and staying fit!
- Zephaniah – Zephaniah’s mum sent over pictures of him reading scales as he baked some cookies! Fun fact (maybe more embarrassing than fun), I have never baked cookies before and I am very impressed with Zephaniah’s baking skills! Hopefully he can teach me a thing or two on baking when we’re back!
- Khaaliq – I am very proud of Khaaliq for sending me this message: “I can count in 2s. And I know my odd and even numbers”. Keep up the great work Khaaliq!
