Check back here regularly to see what we have been doing across the school recently!
On Friday, the whole school attended our annual Christmas service at All Saints’ Church in Goodmayes. Our children performed a beautiful nativity story and our Choir were fantastic – singing Christmas hymns and carols.
Thank you to the Rev Petros Nyatsanza for inviting us back to his church to enjoy such a peaceful and uplifting service.
Our Year 2 children were absolutely sensational as they performed their Christmas show to parents and children this week. They worked so hard learning their lines and creating fabulous costumes. Here is another chance to see their production.
Enjoy watching our Year 1 children from Emerald and Sapphire performing their fantastic Christmas play for parents and teachers yesterday.
Here are our wonderful Year 1 Diamond and Ruby classes performing their Christmas play for a packed audience of proud parents.
This afternoon, our neighbours in Seven Kings were treated to some Christmas cheer with the sound of our children singing carols on our Sponsored Santa Walk. The sun was shining as the whole school braved a chilly day to raise money for charity on their walk. Here are some pictures of the day.
Children – don’t forget to bring in your sponsor money next week to get your little chocolate and certificate.
Our fantastic South Park Choir sang a selection of wonderful Christmas songs and carols at the official turning on of the Christmas lights at Seven Kings station on Friday evening. The event was attended by the Mayor and local dignitaries as well as a very appreciative crowd of parents and music lovers. Well done to all those who practised so hard and sang their hearts out to cheer everyone on a cold winter evening. You can see our choir performing on this video.
A few weeks ago Mary Ogden visited our Year 5 children to share her experiences of being a child during World War II. Mary went to South Park Primary as a 5 year old child in 1935. She talked about what it was like to live in Seven Kings when the bombs were falling during the blitz, and when many of her friends were evacuated to relative safety in the countryside. You can watch the amazing talk she gave to our children here.
On Friday, we finally moved in to our beautiful new Year 6 building. It has been a long wait, but our children and staff can’t wait to settle in.
