Orchard Weekly
News from Form 1

The children in Form 1 have enjoyed making houses as part of their geography topic on the local area. They have also been learning their number bonds to 20, learning about verbs and improving their fine motor skills.

News from Lower 1

The children have decided that learning is fun in Lower 1! They have played some practical maths games to help them count, and to investigate different ways to make up a number. They have practised their handwriting and attempted different obstacle courses to help to improve balance, coordination and team playing.

News from the Den

It has been another busy week in the Den. The children have been playing football in their PE lesson, enjoyed art and gardening outside in the sunshine and listened to Mrs O’Connor playing her violin in their Eurhythmics lesson.

Chiswick Book Festival Poetry Awards

The Chiswick Book Festival Poetry Awards took place (virtually) last Friday afternoon. I am thrilled that five children from Orchard House won prizes for their poems. Congratulations to the three children whose poems were commended and to the two who were winners.

All the children should feel immensely proud of their achievements. A copy of the virtual prize giving can be found online: Poetry Awards prize-giving
