This week we have been thinking about the significance of Remembrance and talking about the 100 year anniversary since the end of World War 1. Part of our learning involved all of the children making a poppy to display on the school fence with a message of peace. You can watch a video of this below.

The Big Pedal
Coopers Lane is participating in Sustrans ‘The Big Pedal’ from 23rd April – 4th May 2018.
Sustrans Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter-school cycling and scooting challenge inspiring pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their journey to school.
Sustrans Big Pedal will run for 10 days from 23 April to 4 May 2018 and is open to individual classes as well as whole schools.
What is the challenge?
On each day, schools compete to see who can get as many of their pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Your school’s best five days will determine your final position, but you can log journeys on all ten days if you wish.
For more information, you can visit their website here.

Junior Travel Ambassador Award Ceremony
On Tuesday 5th December, two Junior Travel Ambassadors from Years 5 and 6 attended a workshop and awards ceremony at City Hall. They met JTAs from many other schools from across London and exchanged ideas about travel initiatives and solutions to the traffic problems that are experienced by most schools. Following a speech given by the Deputy Mayor – unfortunately Sadiq Khan was unavailable – the day was made perfect when we were awarded the prize for School of Excellence in Public Transport.
The Lonely Beast
This week Year 2 have been studying a book called The Lonely Beast about a beast who travelled a long way to try to make some friends but found some in his garden when he got home. The beast had a party with his friends and so we invited our parents and carers to come and have a beast party with us. We shared cakes and biscuits that we made. We loved the cakes and the party, just like the Beast did.
Year 4 Freshwater Theatre Roman Workshop
Year 4 were visited by some extraordinary Roman visitors this week! The children took part in some amazing Roman workshops and activities throughout the day including being the studio audience for ‘Return from the Past!
As part of our Anti-Bullying Fortnight, this week we have been making new friends in different classes or year groups. Each class was ‘buddied’ up with another and the children did some fun getting to know you activities. At lunchtimes the children were also able to have their photos taken with their new friends and the pictures are going up on a display next to Mr Hooper’s office. It has been lovely to see so many new friendships and so many smiley faces!
We are very proud of the children who recently had their ‘Tube’ inspired poems displayed at London Bridge, Charing Cross and Cannon Street stations. The amazing poems were on display for two weeks in October and were seen by thousands of people who passed through the stations. Mr Hooper, Mr Mole and the children had a wonderful day visiting each station to see the poems. They even got to visit the control room at London Bridge and make their own tannoy announcement!
We Scare Hunger
The children had a wonderful time dressing up on Halloween for ‘We Scare Hunger’. Thank you to all the children and parents for their fantastic contributions for our local food bank.
