Looking back at Rio Grande's previous projects, trips and events...


Year 4s Science Outing to East Dulwich Charter

There was excitement in the air in March 2017, as a group of six Year 4 students attended a Science Workshop at the East Dulwich Charter School. The students included Abdulsalam, Sarah and Lui from Rio Grande Class and Ansel, Obina and Jolanda from Hudson Class joined the secondary school's science ambassadors for the workshop which included some excellent peer learning.


They took part in five experiments and had a wonderful afternoon. Look at the pictures below to see what fun they had. Visit our Rio Grande and Hudson Class Pages to see some videos from the afternoon.

Hudson and Rio Grande - some of what got up to between 2016 and 2017


In Numeracy, we began working on using partitioning to divide 2 digit numbers by one digit numbers. We also looked at the relationship between multiplication facts and division facts. The more they know their multiplication tables, the faster they become at deriving their division facts. 

Do try these at home!


Our unit on Hayao Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away” in Literacy has continued to excite and engage the children’s imagination! This week we look at Chihiro, the main character, and the fascinating supporting cast of spirits. Each one of them has a unique appearance, personality and quality. The children then had an opportunity to create their own spirit. 


One Topic consisted of a very interesting trip to the British Museum to see the mummies and Ancient Egyptian artefacts. The children thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a great deal! A massive thanks to the parents that came along with us. We also looked at Hieroglyphics and used this fascinating written language to create our own messages to each other. We sent home some Hieroglyphic symbols for the children to create their own message with.
