  • Don Rae – The Little Mermaid

    Wed 31 Jan 2024

    Don came to visit on Friday 8th December and the whole school were really excited.  Each class participated in a 30min workshop with Don and his team.  They worked hard and quickly learned their parts in the play.  At 2pm all the classes met in the hall to perform together.  It all went very well as always and the children all really enjoyed the day.

    Thanks Don – we all look forward to the next one! I wonder what the theme will be next time

    Wed 31 Jan 2024

    Congratulations to all of those who took part in the careers interview last Friday ( 26/1/24) with Dr Jamie Maddock from Quilter Associates. The morning was spent going over CV’s and employment skills. Dr Maddock was very impressed with New Woodlands School and the careers provision. He looks forward to coming in again next year. A special mention goes out to Hannarly Wilmot (above) in LH. Hannarly was certainly the best dressed and spoke very eloquently about his ambitions once he leaves school.

  • Mandela Class trip to Science Museum 25-01-2023

    Wed 31 Jan 2024

    Mandela Class had the opportunity to travel to London to visit the Science Museum with Ms. Jean-Paen.  Spread across seven different zones, the class had the opportunity to interact with real scientific phenomena in the Wonder Lab. We saw lightning strike before our eyes, experience how sound waves create a disturbance in water and how thermal imaging cameras work.   

    Around the rest of the museum we saw old airplanes like Spitfires, space rockets and re-entry pods and sculptures and vintage cars among other interesting inventions. 

  • The Tower of London

    Wed 20 Dec 2023

    On Wednesday 13th December, The Nest visited the Tower of London to consolidate their learning in History. Their topic for the Autumn Term was The Battle of Hastings. The original Tower of London was built by the Normans following the invasion led by William the Conqueror. The children were able to see how the Tower has been used through history as a fortress, a prison and a palace and how it has changed through time to suit its purpose.

    Here, we saw a painting of what the original Tower looked like when it was first being built by the Normans. We also saw some of the original Norman features including the foundations and a fireplace. It was interesting to see the wooden mask of William the Conqueror and also the armour that he would have worn.



    We saw lots of other interesting things including the Ravens which live at the tower.

    We saw The Crown Jewels (but we weren’t allowed to take photos of them), the guards and lots of weapons. We also learnt about the different animals which were kept at the tower including a polar bear! Ryan even sat on an old toilet which was just a hole in the wall.

  • Chislehurst Caves

    Wed 20 Dec 2023

    As part of our literacy and history, the year 7 classes visited the  Chislehurst Caves, which were carved out over hundreds of years. The caves were dug for chalk used in lime burning and brick making for the Building of London, as well as for flints to fire the tinderboxes and flintlock guns of years ago.

    First open to the public in 1900 as a showplace, the guides told the Victorians history of Romans, Druids and Saxons and Smuggling. During WW1, it was used as munitions storage for the Woolwich Arsenal.

    With the outbreak of WW2, the caves became an underground town and the largest deep air-raid shelter outside London, protecting over 15000 people every night during the Blitz.
