Drumming workshop

Thomas Tallis school invited a group of Year 4 pupils to a Samba Drumming Workshop. The children were selected from Gregory and Nesbit based on their attitude and achievement in their music lessons. The children had a great time learning new rhythms and the teacher even tried to catch them out with tricky music patterns but our Year 4s were just too good.

Key Steps 3 and Key Steps 2 Gymnastic Competition at Thomas Tallis

Eltham participated in both competitions this year and represented the school admirably. Due to building works and limited availability of the hall they had very little opportunity to use a vault and to practise their floor routines. Despite these drawbacks, all the children excelled. They all learnt their floor routine and were competent in their body management skills. In the Key Steps 3 competition the team came a commendable  8th. In the key Steps 2 competition the team came an excellent 3rd.

School Book Fair

We would like to thank you for your very generous support of our Book Fair this week.

The total sales over the two days was: £1,227.34 ~ this means that the School has earned a total of £736.40 Rewards to purchase books for your children. This is a fantastic amount, very well done to everyone who supported us – children, parents and school staff.

A special thank you to those parents who were able to help on the days and also to the staff for helping run the event.

You may like to know that this amount is the highest raised in the last 8 years and the 3rd highest raised since we started hosting Books Fairs in 1994!

Thank you once again.

Fabulous France!

Children in Year 6 had a brilliant time in Arras, France.  They donned helmets as they explored the wartime tunnels in Arras, and sampled some sumptuous culinary delights at the Christmas Market, all while using the French language skills they have been learning throughout the year.  Fantastique!

Chocolate Extravaganza!

To celebrate the work the children in Years 3 and 4 have been doing in Literacy, namely reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, Friday was Chocolate Day here at Eltham Church of England.  What can we say – the designs were fabulous!  After a delicious tasting session, the Student Voice representatives then took chocolate cake donations around to local charities to show how much we appreciate the work they do in our community.

Time Capsule

In the spirit of leaving a legacy for the future pupils at Eltham Church of England Primary School, we made a time capsule and filled it with objects that symbolise what life is like for our children in 2016.  The time capsule was sealed and laid into the wall of our new school hall in a special assembly by Mr Bulpitt.
