Choir singing at Home Mead Residential Home in Teddington
Our wonderful KS2 choir were invited to entertain the residents at Homemead Care Home in Teddington. Homemead specialises in dementia care, offering a comfortable and stress-free environment that is ideal for those living with the effects of memory loss. The children performed fantastically to the residents, many of whom joined in with the well known Christmas carols and danced away to the more modern songs! The children were fabulous and certainly brought joy and festive cheer to all there.
We were delighted to welcome the schools team from the Royal Institute of Science to join us at our Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths event. Children across the school enjoyed and participated in a range of exciting investigations culminating in an whole school community event and show after school.
Every week our year 3 class receive a Brite box which is a box of ingredients to make a nutritious family meal. The children are encouraged to share photographs with the food that they make with their family and they discuss the outcomes in class the following week.
Below are photographs of the children receiving their boxes and a special event acknowledging its success. Our head teacher spoke at the event sharing the positive impact of Brite boxes on the school.
