Ducklings Hatching 🙂

We had a great surprise when we came into Nursery this morning – one of the ducklings had hatched!  The Nursery children loved looking at the ducklings today and talking about what they could see. We first looked when the 2nd duckling hadn’t hatched yet and was inside the egg trying to hatch.  Then the 2nd […]

Duckling Eggs

Here is today’s egg picture. Can you see anything?  Some of them are starting to crack!

Not such a sunny day today but look what I found!

Today I found some interesting plants and other things…BUT I HAD TO LOOK VERY CAREFULLY It made me think. I wonder if it is really noisy for those ants, ladybirds, worms and earwigs that live under these bells. I thought about them blowing in the wind and how much noise they would make. Can you […]

Another early morning walk…what did I find?

   That looked like cotton wool to me! When I looked closer… it was a wriggling mess of caterpillars… still munching away at the Hawthorn tree they are on. So I went on the hunt for spiders webs. You can just see this intricate pattern on this spiders web. How does it do that? It […]

History on our doorstep!

        On my walk this morning I came across this!  It is part of World War two. It is called a Tett Turret.  During World War two there was an airfield based in Hornchurch. Hornchurch is 3 stops on the tube train from Dagenham East (the station closest to our school).  Air […]

Spot the difference

Have some fun during this temporary school closure. There are several differences between these two pictures, can you spot them?  

Look what I found on my walk this morning!

Wow look at these! On my walk this morning I went past a tree (A Hawthorn) and I noticed a small cotton wool blob on the end of a branch. At first I thought it was a spiders web. But when I looked closely WELL!! look what it was. These wriggly caterpillars have just hatched. […]

Mrs Moreline’s Morning Walk

Key Workers

A big 'THANK YOU' to all the 'Key Workers' from John Perry Primary School. Stay Safe!

Watch out Master Chef

Year 4’s are continually developing our cooking skills. Last week we created our own stir fry using fresh vegetables, noodles, lemon juice and soy sauce. This week we surprised ourselves by making apple tarts using home made pastry. We used a number of different cookery techniques including: peeling, cutting, slicing, dicing, rolling and mixing to […]

Year 4 Mayan temples

The Spanish conquistadors discovered whole abandoned cities with strange pyramids and other buildings in the middle of the rain-forest. We created our own Mayan temples. This one is even taller than Mr Flint.  

Our Mayan Headdresses

This term our Humanities topic is ‘The Mayans.’ Mayan headdresses were an important part of the Mayan attire. The quality and sometimes the size of the headdress would tell people about the social status of the wearer. Can you spot any Royalty among our tribe?

Painting in the style of Claude Monet

Over the last few weeks we have been working on our painting skills. Using Claude Monet’s famous outdoor scenes as a basis, we created our own.                                       

How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth

For the last two weeks of Spring term year 3 will be working on ‘How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth’ written by Michelle Robinson and Kate Hindley. They will be writing instructions and focusing on developing their use of imperative verbs. In order to do this we decided to build our own woolly mammoths first […]

World Religion Day

  We used water colours to produce our own paintings of the devastating wild fires in Australia.

Our European Neighbours

This term year 4 are studying our European Neighbours. First we had to identify and name the seven continents of the world and then we had an understanding of where and how big Europe is. This week we used the laptops to find out the capital cities of many of the European countries. We now […]

World Religion Day

Last week to celebrate 'World Religion Day', year 6 created posters to show what they are inspired by. They used collage taken from newspapers and magazines to portray an abstract piece of work. They also wrote a small explanation about their inspiration for later life.    

World Religion Day

To celebrate 'World Religion Day' 4K produced some religious art work. The theme was 'Are we spoiling God's good Earth?' We reflected on the fact that many religions teach their followers that the Earth is God's creation, but the beauty of it, is being destroyed by humans. Using water colour paints we demonstrated how our [...]

World Religion Day

RD looked at lots of different information about 'World Religion Day', we spoke about the different religions in the world and the children said words that they knew based on their own religions. To show the unity and respect for each other that 'World Religion Day' brings, we created a colourful background of all the [...]

Nursery RE

  In Nursery we have been discussing holy words and the religions of Islam, Christianity and Hinduism. We have been talking about different festivals that we can celebrate during the year and how people might celebrate them. 

RE Art Day – World Religions Day

In year 1 we designed Art work around the word ‘Holy’. We chose a word that was ‘holy’ to us and created a stained glass window effect. We carefully cut out our letters and used different coloured tissue paper for the background.

RE and Art Day- Are we spoiling God’s Earth?

In Year 3 we have been exploring through art things we need to do to protect God’s Earth. We discussed what things we enjoy doing outside such as swimming, playing and running around. We used chalk and black card to create scenes of beautifulsettings with images of children enjoying themselves.

Reindeer Assembly

John Perry had a special Reindeer Assembly today, with a visit from Santa! Two children won a cuddly reindeer toy, for being able to understand and explain why the 'Reindeer Run' took place on Monday. One of our ARP children Kye Jones raised an amazing £460 for the charity! That took the amount raised (so [...]

December-more like Religious-cember!

5L have been extremely lucky these last few weeks,  they have had visitors from different religions come into school and enlighten the children about their faith and their journey to their religion. 5L have also been on a trip  to see the Nativity in Romford. They were able to gain knowledge about the story of [...]

Barking Stinks!

5L went on their first trip last week to Valence Museum, to discover the layers of smells and stenches that tell the story of Barking's rich industrial past. From the fragrance of thriving fisheries to the stench of the sewage works, manure to match makers, and fertiliser fumes to fizzy pop factories. The children got [...]

Black History, Poetry, Debates and a Bug Hunt…OH MY!

This week has been a busy week for 5L! For Black History we have been learning about slavery and a man called Frederick Douglass who helped changed the lives of not only black people but he also fought for women's rights. We have been writing a balanced argument to understand why some people thought slavery [...]

Imperial War Musuem

This week 6I went to the Imperial War Museum to continue their learning on World War 2. They were able to partake in a question treasure hunt to find out as much extra information as they could. Here are some pictures documenting their brilliantly fun day out:

Black History Month

To start Black History Month with a bang, 5L was drumming up some learning in their African Drumming workshop. The children learnt about where the drums came from, how to follow a beat and create their own beats. "I really enjoyed learning about a musical instrument"- Dari"This was fantastic!"- John Luke
