This term St Mary's was lucky enough to get a place on the London Beekeepers' Association "Honeybee Programme".
As well as a visit to the school from a beekeeper and a gardening session planting bee-friendly plants, Year 4 visited Brockwell Park Apiary to learn why bees are so special and important. We had an amazing time!
We visited the Maritime Museum to learn all about Polar Explorers as part of our learning in History.
The children worked as a team to plan an expedition to the North Pole. We went into the museum galleries to research what food we could eat, clothes we could wear, how we could make a shelter, travel and keep ourselves entertained!
We had a great time, behaved briliantly and learned a lot.
In Religious Education (R.E.) this term, we have been learning about Jesus' two greatest commandments. We learnt that the two commandments are:
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul and mind.
Love your neighbour just as you love yourself.
We wrote our own love prayers. We hope you enjoy reading them.
On Wednesday 9th February, Year 4 went on an exciting, informative and fun boat trip on the river Thames. We began our journey at Ladywell Station- taking the train to Waterloo East.
We saw a lot of fascinating landmarks on our way to the pier as we walked across the Westminster Bridge- The London Eye, Big Ben and the House of Parliament.
On the boat, we sailed past and viewed historical landmarks and human features such as piers, St Paul's Cathedral, Shakespeare's globe, Tate Modern, HMS Belfast , the Shard, the famous London Bridge and Tower Bridge to name a few.
We ended our journey at the Greenwich Pier.
It was spectacular!
