Imaginarium Day 2018

St. Saviour’s School hosts Imaginarium Day 2018!  On Friday 13th April, the school was turned over to over 20 different creative and imaginative activities for the children to choose from.  These included 3D modelling, the smallest disco in the world, mathematical puzzles, spin painting, clay making, music and drumming, shadow puppetry, photography, jewellery making, embroidery and many more STEAM activities. Children have the amazing opportunity to explore a world of creativity involving many elements of science and technology as well as art.  By combining all these elements together, it is possible to link different parts of children’s imagination to discover new ideas and solutions to problems.

Mrs Clark (Joseph’s mum) worked alongside Miss Cornelius and the Year Six Tech Team to help produce a video which showcases the amazing activities that were on offer throughout the day. The children are clearly the stars of the show and it is evident from the video that great fun was had by all. A huge thank you to Mrs Clark for helping to make this magnificent video!

St Saviour’s Anti Bullying Video

The Year Six Tech Team has been working hard with Miss Cornelius to produce a powerful video about anti bullying and cyber bullying. During Internet Safety Day, all children across the school participated in a project where we created the St Saviour’s Netiquette Rules for creating a positive online and offline environment. In the video below, you can learn some of the signs of bullying, who you can turn to for support and the similarities between the online and offline world.

Reading Breakfast Morning

We really enjoyed our first ever reading breakfast and book swap! It was so lovely to see children swapping books and talking about why they enjoyed the stories they have donated. It was great to hear the book swap sparking conversations around why books had been donated and who may enjoy reading certain books.  

The hall was packed with families sharing stories and discussing books! Seeing parents and carers taking some time out of their days to sit and read with their children was wonderful . Thank you to all parents and carers who were able to join us for the event.

The Auction Website Goes Live!

We are delighted to announce the PTA Auction Website is now up and ready for you to access.  Please use this link to access the website and start donating your lots!

Many thanks,

Ms Woodford

 

New St Saviour’s Phonics Video

Mrs Wilson and Miss Cornelius have recorded a new video to help aid your understanding of Phonics. You can hear the pronunciations of the Phase 3 and 5 sounds, as well as a basic introduction to sound buttons and pseudo words.

 

 

Year 5 visit the Apple Store

Year Five had the opportunity yesterday to visit the Apple store on Regent’s Street. We had a fantastic workshop where we were able to use the iPads and an app called ‘Clips’ to help film and produce videos based on the Ancient Greeks. We then watched our videos back on the big screen! Each child received a complimentary Apple T-Shirt and a certificate to show we had successfully learnt a new skill using ‘Clips’. Thank you to the Apple store for a amazing workshop!

Sayers Croft 2018

After waving good bye to their parents, Year Five set off on their much anticipated trip to Sayers Croft.  There was a buzz of excitement in the air as they arrived at Sayers Croft to begin their three-day stay.  They braved the ice cold weather to go pond dipping and exploring river features in the local river as well as practising outdoor skills such as building shelters and orienteering.  The evenings were spent by the campfire toasting marsh mallows and drinking hot chocolate while the days were jam packed without door activities that immersed the children in nature.  Year Five embraced the outdoors with great enthusiasm and certainly developed a great sense of independence while they were away.  They also represented St Saviour’s School exceptionally well indeed.  The countdown now begins to their Year 6 Residential trip.

Online Safety Workshop with the Local Police

The children and parents were lucky enough to be visited by the local School Police Officers today, who both delivered fantastic sessions about Online Safety. 

Some classes had the opportunity to try on the Officer’s Uniform as well as use their radios to communicate. We also had our fingerprints done.

Abigail in Year One said: “The uniform was so heavy! I was really shocked. I don’t think I could wear it all day”.

Year Six wrote poems with the Police Officers. Please click here to see a fantastic example of what they wrote.

SCHOOL CLOSED THURSDAY 1ST MARCH

Dear Parents,

School will be closed tomorrow (THURSDAY 1st MARCH) due to severe weather conditions.

Parents should check both their school emails and the Parent Mail App for updates.

Both the children and adult PTA Quiz Nights on Friday have also been postponed.

Reading

At St Saviour’s we encourage children to fall in love with reading. We want them to develop a positive attitude towards reading and recognise that it is an important life skill. We hope that children value reading as an enjoyable activity but also understand that they can read for information.

Initially we teach reading through phonics.  At St. Saviour’s we follow the government programme of teaching phonics and in Foundation Stage we use Jolly Phonics to support the government programme.  Children are taught to split words into sounds (segment) and put sounds together to make words (blend).  In Foundation Stage and Year One, children are taught phonics four times a week.  In Year Two, children are taught once a week.  In Key Stage Two, children who need extra support are taught individually or in intervention groups.  Our phonics lessons follow the same structure across the school, and this structure is also used to teach spelling rules from Year Two upwards.  We also teach ‘tricky’ words which are not phonetically plausible within phonics lessons.  Children are encouraged to use their phonetic knowledge and understanding in reading and writing.  We find that the children are more confident at using a range of engaging vocabulary in their writing thanks to their phonetic skills, knowledge and understanding.

Beyond phonics, one of the main ways we teach reading is through guided reading. The children have the opportunity to read a wide variety of texts in small groups and explore them in detail. This is done with adults and then as they grow in independence we encourage the children to lead the groups, with an adult present, asking each other probing questions around the text. Children are taught according to their individual needs and we have a wide variety of texts, fiction and nonfiction for this.

The teaching of reading also filters into many other areas of learning and is taught in a wide variety of contexts. For example, children read for information in topic based lessons. We have recently developed our classroom libraries and invested in some new books, which were chosen by the children. There are up to date engaging books in all classrooms which the children enjoy reading.

Online Safety Day 2018

St Saviour’s is proud to celebrate Safer Internet Day 2018. We believe that it is incredibly important to educate children on how to use the Internet safely, and how to overcome potential problems that they encounter online. 

The theme for this year was Cyber Bullying. As a school, we had an assembly with Miss Cornelius and discussed how the online environment is in fact not that dissimilar from the offline environment. We talked about what we should do to create a happy and positive environment online. We also discussed what we should do if we receive hurtful comments or feel like we are being bullied online. We discussed the term ‘banter’ and what to do if banter escalates via group messaging. If we start to feel concerned or uncomfortable, we must tell a trusted adult.

If we feel we are being cyber bullied, we discussed how we must:

  • Stop what we are doing and do not retaliate.
  • Block the user.
  • Report any messages to an trusted adult.
  • Report inappropriate videos or users using the report button.
  • Screenshot the evidence.

Messages should be positive, and the emojis we use should be encouraging. We should not overshare information and we should always ask permission if posting messages or images about other people.

Key Stage One and Key Stage Two all created a set of ‘Netiquette’ Rules for creating a positive online environment. These will be on display near the Computing room and some are posted below. 

If you have any questions regarding online safety, please contact Miss Cornelius or Mrs Nuechtern.

The Circus comes to St Saviour’s

It has been a fun-filled week here in school! I’m sure your children will agree that our visitor ‘Lucas Jet’ has been a big hit!  His assemblies and workshops have been incredible and the children have been delighted to share in the circus experience.  The whole school have been able to watch Lucas perform many tricks as well as learn some tricks of their own in class workshops. Here are some quotes from a few children:

 

“It was awesome how only one person could do so many tricks!” Panayiotis Year 4

“I think it was mind-blowing of how he could do all of those tricks without failing!’ Vivian Year 4

“How can he juggle so well?” Maximos Year 5

“He was very funny and entertaining! I learnt how to co-ordinate my hands to juggle!” Noel Year 5

 

Maths Week 2018

This year’s Maths Week was, once again, extremely successful. All classes participated in a range of mathematical activities, with using and applying maths as our key focus.

The children enjoyed being taught by a different teacher during Class Swap as well as interacting with the Dads and other male family members on Dad’s Afternoon. There was a turn out of over 70 Dads! Well done!

The Key Stage Maths Quiz was an exciting time for all. Congratulations to the winning team, which was Mars (Teddy, Salem, Oliver and Iago).

Finally, the whole week builds up towards the highly anticipated Business Challenge. Results will be announced in Friday’s Assembly. We had a range of products this year, including peppermint creams, pizza, jelly, slime, cupcakes, ice cream, fruit kebabs, Emoji biscuits, smores and many more! However, lots of classes opted for raffles. Results to be announced soon!

 

 

 

KS1 Nativity 2017

Years One and Two performed exceptionally well at this year’s Nativity play. We were all extremely proud of them and there was not a dry eye in the house!

This year, we were lucky enough to be visited by Sing Up, who were utterly impressed with the children’s ability to learn and perform a range of new songs so well. Below are some photos from the performance.

St Saviour’s Staff Preparing for Christmas

Who needs the Marks and Spencer’s or John Lewis adverts when staff at St Saviour’s have created our own ‘Preparing for Christmas’ film??!  St. Saviour’s  School prepares for the arrival of a new recruit… who is in the box delivered by Santa??!

Below you can find out what the exciting surprise was. Needless to say, the children were thrilled to find out!

STARS Gold Award

adam_stage3_awards04

Jayden, a Bike It Crew member from Year Five, represented our school at a London wide TfL STARS Seminar. As part of this special Seminar Jayden accepted our STARS Gold Award in a special awards ceremony at the end of the day. Be on the lookout for more exciting travel events coming your way, as Jayden was able to liaise with other children from London schools to think of new things we can do.

Royal Ballet Dance Lesson with BBC Ten Pieces

On 13th November some KS2 children took part in the BBC Live Lesson led by teachers from the Royal Ballet School. As part of our work inspired by the project ‘Ten Pieces’ – the children were encouraged to create dance motifs in response to listening to ‘The Waltz of the Flowers’ from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker Suite.

The children danced by themselves, in pairs and as a whole group. They worked really hard and enjoyed performing the motifs they had choreographed. We live tweeted whilst we were performing that afternoon and made it in to a BBC social media ‘moment’!

Ten Pieces is a Nation wide project that encourages children to have creative responses to music – whether that’s art, dance, poetry, story writing or composing…. the options are endless! You can join in the fun at home too! Visit the 10 pieces website here and perhaps have a go at a project at home. Perhaps you’d like to paint a picture or write a poem? Maybe you could make a model or choreograph a dance? Make sure you bring it in so we can share it at school – or perhaps take a photo or video! Miss. Hodgson would love to see them!

Vicar Appreciation Week

Last week we celebrated Vicar Appreciation Week by having a special Monday Mass led by the RE Ambassadors, a special presentation to our local clergy in an assembly and a Vicar Appreciation Banquet hosted by the RE Ambassadors.

International Day 2017

We have had another successful International Week, with classes exploring a range of different countries in their lessons this week. Year One were learning fascinating facts about Ancient Egypt, whilst Year Five had the opportunity to make Japanese dolls. Year Two were also very excited to make Italian pizza! 

On Friday, we had our annual International Evening, which again was a huge success. Thank you to everyone who contributed a dish from their chosen nationality. We had a marvellous time and enjoyed sharing food with those in our school community. Well done to the Year Six Samba band, led this year by Miss Lorimer.

Virtual Reality comes to St Saviour’s!

On Wednesday 20th September, Key Stage One and Two participated in a Virtual Reality workshop, where they had the unique opportunity to launch into Space using VR headsets. We learnt about a range of planets as well as gain a new understanding of the capabilities of emerging technology. The children were fully engaged throughout the workshop, and the feedback from both students and staff was extremely positive. 

A huge thank you goes to the PTA who kindly helped fund this unique and ‘out of this world’ 3D learning experience.

 

St. Saviour’s visits the World Para Athletics Championships!

On Monday 17th July, a group of parents and children (including Miss Lorimer and Mr Dan) visited the London Stadium (home of London 2012) for a day at the World Para Athletics Championships.  The sun was shining all day and we were very fortunate to have perfect seats to watch the long and triple jump! We saw many spectacular performances from a range of Para athletes competing in their chosen sports.  We particularly enjoyed seeing members of the GB team compete and cheered really loudly!  We also saw some medals being awarded later in the day.  Thank you to all of the parents who came along with their children for what was, a really great day out!

Year One visit the London Transport Museum

Yesterday, the weather was glorious and Year One were lucky enough to spend the day at the London Transport Museum! We started our day by having a Poster Art workshop where we looked at a range of posters, through the years, that have featured in the Underground stations. We discussed the purpose of posters and how they often have hidden messages! We worked in groups to create our own London Underground posters. After our workshop, we explored the museum and got to look at a range of transportation models and how they have evolved over time. We had a fantastic day! 

On top of the World!

Today, Ms. Woodford received the most amazing video from Alexander’s father, Ronnie, who sent it from the summit of Mount Lhoste in Central Nepal.  This was a complete surprise for everyone; including Alex!  We looked at different maps to show where we are in the world as well as where Mount Lhoste is.  This mountain is the fourth highest in the world and is located immediately south of Mount Everest.  Mount Lhoste is 8516M and Mount Everest is 8850M  This climb is very difficult and registered as a Major Mountain Experience. 

Alex sat at the front of the hall and everyone watched in astonishment as his father explained how cold it was and showed us a 360 degree view of the mountain range.  Alex told us his father has to have special clothing and boots to climb mountains as well as oxygen as it becomes difficult to breathe at this altitude.  We wondered how he kept warm at night and Alex told us he has to sleep in a special orange tent complete with hot water bottles and a game of Monopoly!

Year Five go back to Victorian School

On Thursday 18th May, Year 5 travelled to Mile End to visit the Ragged School Museum.   Some of the class dressed as a Victorian child for the day to really get into character.  When we arrived we were taken upstairs to the Victorian classroom where Miss Perkins taught us the alphabet and how to convert shillings and pennies!  She was extremely strict throughout the lesson and made us stand up when we said our names in the register, she checked our hands were clean and wouldn’t allow us to talk at all!!  After the lesson she showed us some of the punishments the children used to experience such as the ‘Dunces’ hat, finger stocks and the cane.  It was a great experience for everyone!  Thanks to the parent helpers who came along. 

Here are some photos of our trip!

Ditch the Stabilisers

On Tuesday 16th May, a group of Reception and Key Stage One children and their parents were able to participate in a Ditch the Stabilisers session. The parents and children learned techniques to ride a bicycle without stabilisers and had the time to practise with the support of other families and their peers. Many children went home being able to proudly say they have ridden their bicycles without stabilisers! Congratulations to all the children and parents involved in the special event.

 

If your child is in Reception or Key Stage One and did not get a chance to participate in this session, be on the lookout for information coming soon about another Ditch the Stabilisers session this school year!

Celebrating National Sing Up Day!

Sing Up Day this year felt truly special. St Saviour’s joined with 26 countries over 6 continents to celebrate the joys of singing.

We began the day with a family singing breakfast workshop, before school had even opened it’s doors, and were delighted that over 50 families joined us to sing some school favourites along with the National Sing Up Day anthem, ‘Let Love Shine Through’. And what lovely feedback you shared too! We hope to make these a termly event.

 

The day ended with a whole school singing assembly, with each class performing a Sing Up classic to the rest of the school, and rounding off the day with us all enjoying another rendition of Let Love Shine Through.

 

If you’d like to keep singing this at home, here’s a link to the lyric video. Enjoy!

Maths Week 2017

Maths Week was a huge success and the children thought of some brilliant ideas for their class product to sell on Business Challenge Day. It can now be revealed that the winning class was…YEAR FOUR! They managed to raise over £100! Each class can now spend their well earned winnings on whatever they choose!

Thank you to everyone who helped with the sales on Friday and who contributed by buying some of our delicious products. 

 

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Races!

On Shrove Tuesday, all years participated in a Pancake Race, to celebrate Shrove Tuesday. We had great fun racing our pancakes in the playground.

In Church on Ash Wednesday, each child had the opportunity to be blessed by Father Bradley and have ash put on to our foreheads. We learnt that the ash is made from burnt palm leaves and that the day symbolises the start of Lent. We discussed how God forgives us for our sins and revealed in Church the things that we will be giving up.

Book Week 2017

We have had an amazing Book Week. Our whole school focus was ‘Children’s Classics’ and each class focused on a traditional well loved story. 

On Tuesday, parents were invited to come and read with their children, which they really enjoyed. Then, on Wednesday we had our Key Stage One and Two Poetry Slam! The standard was incredibly high this year. Well done to every who performed. You were brilliant! 

Thursday was our Key Stage Two ‘Play in a Day’.  Jonah Fazel (from The Make ’em Ups Theatre Company) and Miss. Hodgson worked incredibly hard with Year 3,4 and 6 to devise a performance of ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’. The children performed with such confidence and it was impressive how well they remembered their lines and positions on stage.  All in one day! Bravo!

Friday was our annual World Book dress up day! We had a whole range of imaginative costumes based on Classic Children’s Books – well done for your efforts!

We can’t wait for next year…

World Faiths Day 2017

World Faith’s Day was an exciting day at St Saviour’s as we learned about Leadership in World Religions. Across the school, children learned about a specific religion such as Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, and Christianity. Each class learned about leaders that were either included in religious texts, history or current times. During the afternoon Key Stage Two had guest speakers that came to talk about leadership in world religions. We all shared what we had learned at the end of the day during our assembly and hymn practise. It was a wonderful day full of learning and respect for others.



Computing Week 2017

The whole school focus for this week has been Online Safety. ‘Safer Internet Day’ is next month, and St Saviour’s had a head start in learning about to be safe when we are accessing the Internet.

All classes have been made strongly aware, through videos, guest speakers, workshops and lessons, about the dangers that we can face when using the Internet. We covered topics such as personal information, sharing photos, cyber bullying, pop ups and hoax emails. We discussed talking to strangers online and the importance of reporting anything suspicious to an adult.

Year Three also had an amazing time at the Apple store learning how to use coding to program a robot. 

Below are several links to a range of useful resources for both children and adults. Please take the time to read these and become familiar with what you can do to help keep your child safe and happy online. You will also find the results of our recent Online Safety questionnaires.

The Year Six Tech Team have been working extremely hard with Miss Cornelius to produce a video informing children about some of the dangers on the Internet. We used the green screen to combine videos and images! We hope you enjoy it and find it useful.

 

We will also display the winners of the KS2 Online Safety Poster competition next week. The closing date is Tuesday 31st January.

Senior Citizens Party 2017

Year Six hosted the annual Christmas Party for Senior Citizens, from the local area to the School, which proved to be a great success.

We began the afternoon by meeting and greeting our guests and escorting them into the hall. We then provided them with a choice of tea, coffee, or sherry, as well as refreshments and food. We talked to our guests and made them feel comfortable. We then went to the front of the hall to sing Christmas carols with the choir. It was a wonderful afternoon and a chance for us all to show our appreciation.
