Egypt day

What a day! The children learned so much about the Ancient Egyptians. There were quizzes, games, measuring in cubits, mummification, crowning of the pharaoh and much more.

Portals to the Past – 25.05.19

Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 5 are running a workshop on Ancient Egyptian life and culture this Friday. It will be a fantastic opportunity for the children to enhance and consolidate their learning on this topic. We are asking for a contribution from parents and carers of £5. We really appreciate your support.

Yours faithfully,

Miss Nakibinge

MURAL FILM SHOOT – we need YOU! Saturday 4 May, 9am-10am

Hello!

I am the director/ producer of a documentary film, The Wonderful Walk, about the regeneration of Herne Hill station underpass and creation of the amazing 40 metre mural, which many of you helped to colour in last September on World Record Day.
For the final scenes of the film, I’m planning an amazing shoot involving the mural and lots of members of the community – particularly the children and adults who coloured it in. This is where you all come in!
We’re going to take the original, finished mural, in all its sections, unroll it and piece it together on the grass at Dulwich Sports Ground, with everyone helping, and children holding down the edges once it’s in place. We’ll film the process at ground level, and then do a drone shot, rising overhead, so that we have an aerial view of the whole mural and lots of members of our community.  It will be the only opportunity to see the entire mural in one shot, to truly understand its scale and magnificence. Come and marvel, point at the square you coloured in, and generally join in the fun!
Date & TimeSaturday 4th May, 9am sharp to 10am 
 
LocationDulwich Sports Ground, Turney Road, SE21 7JH 
Car Parking: Only enough space for the organising team and disabled (along the private road and where Nelly’s Nursery is marked on map).  Please come by public transport / on foot / bike. It’s only a few minutes from the No 3 bus stop in Croxted Road.
Participants: All are welcome, adults and children, able and disabled – there’s room for hundreds of people! Please do spread the word – though not on social media (we are keeping this under wraps). Particularly we would love to see anybody who was at the colouring-in day, including children from the eight schools who participated.

There will be live piano from 8pm, film programme from 9pm. It’s free, and you’re all warmly invited.

We are lucky enough to be attending a music workshop at the Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday. (please return slips a.s.a.p.). Please ensure your child is dressed in appropriate clothing and has a suitable packed lunch (including fruit/vegetables, no sweets or nuts). Please arrive at school on time as we will be leaving shortly after the register.

Oscar’s mum and Gabriel’s dad will be accompanying us on our trip, thank you to everyone else that offered. I’ll keep you in mind for next time.

Thank you,
