FORM 2S Assembly 9.00am

Wednesday 21 June

The theme of this assembly is History’s Got Talent

Parents are, of course, very welcome to attend!

LOWER 1H Harry the Hippo assembly

The children in Lower 1H have worked very hard to learn their lines and they did an excellent job today performing the story of ‘Harry the Hippo’. They delivered a very important message to a large audience that everyone is unique and special in their own way and we must accept everyone for who they are. Thank you to mummies and daddies who helped with the costumes. They were truly amazing! Well done, Lower 1H.

MESSAGE FROM MRS CAWTHORNE:

It was lovely to see the Lower 1H assembly this morning, which raised our spirits at the end of what has been a very difficult week. The local community, including many of our parents, has been amazing, working hard to support those in need. Children are very robust and I’m pleased to say that it has very much been business as usual at Bassett House School this week. Any concerns from the children have been dealt with tactfully and the staff have been wonderful in this regard. We have also reached out to Oxford Gardens to offer help, as I believe their community has been badly affected. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower.

THE DEN Visit to Hounslow Urban Farm

The Den children visited Hounslow Urban Farm this week. The weather was beautiful and the children had a fabulous time. They were able to see, touch and hold a variety of creatures. The children were able to feed goats, sheep, alpacas and calves. It was great fun as the animals tickled their hands when they took the food. Some brave children and staff wore a snake around their necks, whilst two very brave children allowed a Bengal Eagle Owl called Ollie to land on their arm. They were of course wearing a falconry glove!

We had a tremendous day with the children learning about different types of animals.

 
FORM 3 Geography

In geography this week the children in Form 3 were able build their own ‘theme park for ants’ using only natural materials. The children worked in groups to build their own individual structures. The plan for the next geography lesson is to draw an aerial view of their theme park to gain an understanding of aerial maps, using a key to label key features. Hopefully they will be able to use this skill to draw a map of Flatford Mill when we return!
