We had a wonderful start to our morning. How often does the Mayor of London visit a school? Well we had Sadiq Khan come to Netley and he visited our class! It was all very exciting because we got to meet the Mayor, talk to him and take photos—and all because we live in the […]
Netley is a happy, rights respecting school.
Everyone takes steps to better themselves and their community, as they become responsible, global citizens.
Netley Primary School is an inclusive school, exuding a warmth and generosity of spirit that comes from our happy children and diverse school community. The school is set within Netley Campus, a state of-the-art learning environment for children and adults. We have 450 children, including Woodlands, an outstanding centre for children with Autism. In 2014 OFSTED judged both Netley and Woodlands as ‘Good’ in all categories. We are excited to enhance our offer with a new centre for two year olds and the recent completion of our STEM Lab.
In Oak Class, the children were preparing their team for Sport’s Day! We thought about what we needed to take and made a list, to help us remember sun cream, water and hats. We had a great day in the sun and ran in lots of races!
Year 3 now have two beautiful butterflies that have hatched from their cocoons! We have been feeding them fruit and flowers and we now wait excitedly for the others to hatch before we will release them into the open air!
It was KS1 Sports Day this week, and Year 2 got their house colours on and headed over to Regent’s Park for a day of exciting events! There was an egg and spoon race, obstacle course, team relay, and arrowball throw, as well as many more! Everyone in Year 2 really tried their best and […]
Meet our new ‘Netley Playground Buddies’. Look out for them in the playground during playtime and lunchtime. They will have fun activities and will ensure that everyone is having fun!
Yesterday RVD took the bus to Kentish Town City Farm, where we met horses, pigs, goats, sheep, cows, chickens and donkeys. We learned lots about how and why the different animals are kept, and also their technical names. Did you know that ‘cockerel’ is the British English way of saying ‘rooster’, or that a male […]
This week we have been learning about Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr. Some of the children in our class have talked about how they will celebrate Eid with their families and we have made Eid cards to take home. We are also looking forward to having our Eid party next week. This has allowed us to share the value of having different faiths because some […]
We have been making the most of the warmer weather by spending lots and lots of time climbing, balancing and making large scale constructions in our amazing EYFS garden. The big climbing frame and lovely heavy big blocks are great for getting us to challenge ourselves and helping our muscles to grow strong.
Year 3 have been making shadow puppet theatres in science to help them understand light and dark and how shadows are formed! They observed how the size and length of the shadow changed as the they moved the light source closer and further away.
In Willow Class we were experimenting with mixing colours and learning about the colour wheel. First we matched the primary then mixed our own secondary colours to make a rainbow circle!
We loved meeting some weird and wonderful animals brought in by our special guest from Zoolab. We met a corn snake, a giant snail, a gerbil, a milk frog and a tarantula.
