To help celebrate Easter and the beginning of Spring, the infant children took part in an Easter Bonnet competition. Our children worked tirelessly to create beautiful and unique works of art which they wore to our assembly. Miss Saberwal helped many children to demonstrate their hard work and the Easter Bunny even visited to help select a winner who could be awarded with a chocolate egg.
We had excitement in the Nursery when a knock came on our classroom door. When the door was opened no one was there except for some footprints, a basket and a note from the Easter Bunny. The Easter Bunny had set the challenge for everyone to find one egg. The children enthusiastically worked as a team and conquered the challenge set.
This week 2A put on their class assembly which was all about astronauts, space and the moon landing in 1969. They acted and sang beautifully! Well done 2A!
On Wednesday 16th March, Year 1 children visited a Hindu temple. They learnt about the Hindu religion and how Hindus live a ‘good life’. The children enjoyed an oxen led ride, fed cows and dressed up in Hindu clothes. They were also taught some dance moves, visited the shrine and had a delicious vegetarian lunch. They all had lots of fun!
Last week Year 5 went on an out of this world visit to the Science Museum! We explored many artefacts from space and found about the Apollo Moon landings. We also had an interactive cinema experience showing us how it would feel to be in a rocket blasting off to the moon!
On Friday 11th March, Year 3-6 children attended the Barnet Dance Festival at the Arts Depot, North Finchley. After weeks of practising their ‘Sax’ dance at Dance Club, the children showed everybody how talented they all are and performed brilliantly, making the school very proud! Well done! Here are some pictures from our dress rehearsal…
On Friday 4th March, we celebrated Book Character Day. Well done to all children and staff who dressed up – your costumes were very creative!!
Well done to 1W for their fantastic class assembly performance based on the Gingerbread Man story. You all performed with such confidence. We were all really proud of you!!
We have been learning about Judaism and about Places of Worship. As part of these RE topics, we went on a trip to a synagogue last half term. This week we visited a church in our local community, St Alphage. This was a very useful trip as it allowed us to compare and contrast the different places of worship and get a better understanding of how people use the places as part of their faith.
To celebrate World Book Day, Barnfield has had a visit from professional children’s writer Saviour Pirotta! Saviour has been working with lots of different year groups, giving children writing tips and telling his own stories.
