Welcome to Zambezi!

NEWS FLASH: Friday is Swimming Day!

Our school swimming classes take place on Friday mornings at the Camberwell Leisure Centre, so you will need to bring your swimming things to school...

 

Here are a few essential things you need to bring with you:

  • Swimming Hat: If you don't already have one, you can buy one from the School Office for £2.00. The leisure centre won't allow school children to swim without one.
  • Swimming Costume/Swimming Trunks: The leisure centre specifies that boys must wear trunks and not loose swim shorts.
  • A Towel: Stating the obvious? Sorry!
  • Goggles: These are ideal as children will be dipping their faces into the water a lot. They can be bought in advance from the swimming pool.
  • A plastic bag: To bring those soggy swimming things home in... we don't want your children's school bags to end up soaking wet by the end of the day!

Dip 'n' Do is the way to go...

Hang on, is that really Homework?!

 

We've got a great new approach to Homework this year called Dip 'n' Do, whereby your child can choose from a selection of EIGHT homework subjects to do each half term. It is a really fun approach to working from home and will give the children some real choice. We have already found that the children want to engage with each other about it and with their parents and carers. It's exciting for us all. Here's how it works:

 

The children are required to complete the topics featured in the three coloured-in boxes but they then have a choice; they can choose at least three of the other boxes to dip into and do. Of course, they also have the choice to do all eight!

 

The tasks do not have to be completed on a weekly basis but they must all be handed in by the first day back after Half Term, and we still recommend that they dip into their homework and do a bit each week, so that they're not suddenly cramming everything into the break.

 

If you've mislaid your Dip 'n' Do sheet, please ask your Teacher, NOW!

 

Happy Dipping and Doing!

Zambezi 2015

Last year Miss Fisher was our Zambezi Class teacher. The class rounded off 2015 with an exciting trip to the Imperial War Museum, which ended up in the kitchen. Miss Fisher said:

 

"During the Winter Term 2015,  we have been studying both world wars. I’ve attached some photos of our trip to the Imperial War Museum where the children were lucky enough to handle real objects from WW1 to learn about people involved in the war – they were so old we had to wear special white gloves in order to touch them!"

Rating the rationing recipes!

 

Miss Fisher writes: "In DT, we have been looking at rationing and this week cooked two recipes from WW2 – fruity buns and carrot fudge. Picture attached of us  preparing the food, the finished buns and the all-important taste test. The fruity buns were a success, the carrot fudge was less successful!"
