The children in Year 1 have been doing lots of collaborative work. Working in pairs, they had to communicate with each other to make a teddy bear out of molding clay. Have a look at the pictures below of the children’s process of making the bear.
On Wednesday the 11th of December, Year 4 visited the Science Museum to enhance their understanding of ‘Electricity’ and ‘Sound,’ two important units of work which they have been covering this term.
The class visited the Wonderlab, the most spectacular interactive gallery in the world. Spread across 7 different zones, the children had the chance to get hands on with real scientific phenomena, such as seeing lightening strike before their very eyes and experimenting with different forces on giant slides. They also observed a live science show in the Chemistry bar!
Thank you so much to the parents who came with us to help out on this fantastic trip.
For D.T day, Year 2 were creating their own Christmas decorations! They learnt how to stitch and practiced two different types; cross stitching and running stitch. The children then designed, assembled and evaluated their creations.
Have a look at the photos below of the children’s beautiful work!
On Monday the 9th of December, a group of children from Year 3 and Year 4 attended a magnificent musical production of ‘We Will Rock You’ at The Ryan Theatre in Harrow. Performed by boys from the John Lyon School and girls from a number of local schools, the children had a wonderful time listening to the hit music of Queen, complete with amazing costumes, choreography and a live orchestra!
On the 3rd of December, we had a very special visit from Ava the guide dog. We learnt a lot about Ava’s special job and how she helps her owner with lots of different things, such as crossing the road, shopping in the supermarket and even helping to get on and off a bus.
Did you know that Ava is 4 and a half years old and when she turns 10, she will retire and go to live with a family?

On Tuesday 15th October, Kilburn Grange School was delighted to welcome His Worshipful The Mayor of Brent, Councillor Ernest Ezeajughi.
He spoke to the whole school about his special ‘Robe of Office’, how he supports schools and, most importantly, about his journey from his birth and education in Nigeria to his life in London and his path to becoming a Mayor.
He visited the school as part of a series of special visits, visitors and workshops to celebrate ‘Black History Month’.
After taking questions from the children, he reminded us that whether you are black, white or from any other creed, you can be anything you want to be if you work hard and show respect to others.
He ended with famous words from Martin Luther King: ‘Let us all work to be the light that drives out darkness.’
As part of Year One’s topic on ‘Toys’, Classroom Adventures visited for a toy workshop.
Year One have been learning all about old and new toys and we got to design and make our very own wooden, old-style toys using real tools like hammers and hand drills. What an exciting and successful Design and Technology lesson it was!
The children had such a fun time, being creative and designing their own toys!
