The Last Post! (Until next year).

This week we have been having fun and learning at the same time. We made Christmas cards, decorations and angels. We also completed and evaluated our photo frames. On the last day we had a fantastic party. It was so much fun that we didn't want it to stop!

Year 4

We have had a great week full of fun! We spent our time making Christmas cards, calendars, and stained glass windows. We have also been performing in our Christmas play and we loved singing our songs.  Our favourite part of our week was our Christmas party. Happy Christmas!

Key Stage 2 Blog - only one more week until the end of term!

Year 3

This week we have been making, decorating and evaluating our photo frames. Don't scroll down any further if you have a child in year 3 or you will spoil your Christmas surprise! We have also been practising and improving our singing for the Christmas play next week. A very exciting week and more to look forward to.

Year 4

Year 4 have been making 
peppermint creams. This is how we made them. First, we tipped icing sugar in a bowl. Second, we added water and peppermint extract and mixed them together. Finally, we put chocolate on the top. They were yummy!

Year 5

We are going fraction crazy. We have made equivalent fractions, found fractions of quantities and are adding and subtracting fractions.

Year 6

We have been looking at poetry in English and writing our own poetry. In Mathematics we have been working out percentages based on the twelve days of Christmas.

  Pantomime Time!   


On Friday 5th December, the whole school visited the Churchill Theatre, situated in   enchanted Bromley. A land full of castles, fairies, witches, forest and a spinning wheel! The evil Carabosse had cast a spell on the beautiful Princess, and she was doomed to sleep for a hundred years. Only a kiss from her true love could break the spell. We all went along to help the Prince to enter the hidden and cursed castle and rescue the Princess.

Two children went on stage!

This is what we thought of our experience..........

"The pantomime was the highlight of my time at Downsview!"
"I loved it! It was the highlight of the year. There is only one word to describe it, amazing!"

"I liked the fire part because it was so scary."

"The pantomime was exciting and funny. I really enjoyed the ice cream and loved watching."

"We walked to the station and sang 'Are we nearly there yet' from the Xmas play!"

"I loved it when the toys came alive!"

The witch was scary because she was green!"

"There was a fantastic ending! Silly Billy was very funny but my favourite person was the princess. The prince was Rob from Coronation Street."

"I liked the songs and the witch!"

Thanks to all the parents, governors and teachers who helped make this possible.

What a fantastic day!
