Year 6 Trip to the Thames on Emirates Air Line Cable Car 

Year 6 enjoyed great views and a unique ride across the Thames on the Emirates Air Line Cable Car as one of their end of term trips linked to our topic of London.
The Emirates Air Line is a cable car crossing the River Thames in Greenwich, and the 1km journey gave the children spectacular views of London from a height of up to 90m (295ft).

We were just ten minutes away from the entertainment complex of the O2 Arena before take-off. Incredible views included the Thames Barrier, the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf and the impressive Olympic Park. The cable car touched down south of the River Thames in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

 Ourexperience began in Greenwich where we boarded our cabin in groups. We sat back, relaxed and took in the 360-degree aerial views throughout the short flight. There was a comprehensive In-Flight Guide video on-board. The children’s reactions where memorable; they picked out the iconic landmarks and shared their prior knowledge from school about the landmarks as they spotted them.

Upon arrival the children discussed the London landmarks while having lunch on the green. The children celebrated their learning and achievements by catching up with each other, playing games and best of all lots of laughing. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful sights of London and we were very lucky to have lovely warm weather too.

The children did not miss anything, as they got a second chance to spot the breath-taking sights on our return journey to the Emirates Greenwich Peninsula. We ended our experience at the Emirates Royal Docks, strolling by the picturesque waterfront when walking back to the nearby DLR.
Summer Term @ Highlands Primary School

Wow what a year we have had!  Such a  buzz of creativity, constant improvement and exciting new horizons!

We believe that our greatest achievement this year has been becoming a Unicef Rights Respecting Gold School, and the recognition that our whole school community believes in the values of Unicef and the Articles to protect children from the UNCRC Charter.

We believe that being a great citizen is the most important thing we can develop.

We are very proud to be a Gold school. Thank you Unicef.

Football Tournament

On Tuesday 23rd April a team of 8 Year 5 and 6 boys attended an Al Noor football tournament at the West Ham Foundation ground. We are really proud of the team who were determined and played incredibly hard as they represented our school. Not only did the boys play well they displayed our Rights Respecting School values as a result of the way they presented themselves through their sportsmanlike behaviour. Although the boys did not win the overall tournament positive discussions were heard on the bus home as the boys thought about how they could improve their performance next time! A fantastic day was had by all and we can't wait for more opportunities for our teams to represent our school.
