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.
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.
This week year 4 have been learning all about poetry. We have been discussing all the poems we already know as a class, as well as reading several new poems. We were even lucky enough to meet the poet, Kate Wakeling, who gave us a poetry workshop in which we learned top tips on writing […]
This week our Maths learning has been all about measurement. Using language such as ‘wider’ ‘narrow’ ‘long’ ‘shorter’ ‘tall’ ‘big’ and ‘smallest’ we’ve explored size and shape. In this photo we were challenged to put ourselves in height order. Lots of amazing mathematical discussion came out of working out exactly where each of us should […]
This week in Year 2 we have been learning to be History Detectives! We went on a gallery walk around our classroom and looked at different historical sources such as Paintings, maps, portraits, diaries and artefacts. We looked for clues as to what our new topic might be about. Thanks to our incredible detective skills, […]
This week is Poetry week and in Year 5 we have been reading lots of different poems. Our main focus has been to identify all the different features in a poem and why the poet has chosen to use these techniques. Both classes will be writing their own alliteration poems using the skills they have learnt […]
