    Published 18/07/22

    The day started with an assembly in the hall to learn all about the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. We all dressed in red, white or blue to celebrate the occasion and some of the children and adults even wore crowns which looked beautiful.

    The hall and dining tables were emblazoned with union jacks as lunch time staff served school lunches. The playground was adorned with bunting made by children from every class.

    During the afternoon, we had a whole school picnic where children brought in de licious food and ate it on the top playground in a picnic. Year 3 classes even made royal cupcakes which looked scrumptious!

    What a spectacular day!

  • Fun and Games for Year 2

    Published 17/12/21

    Year 2 attended Chessington World of Adventures which they thoroughly enjoyed. There were a lot of exciting rides which we went on, including the The Gruffalo River Ride and The Scorpian Roller Coster. We also had the opportunity to visit the farm where we saw the goats being fed, we rode on the safari truck where we could see giraffes close up and we visited the zoo and watched the lions roar very loudly! Year 2 were extremely sensible on the trip and listened very carefully to instructions. They should all feel very proud of themselves for brilliantly representing Roxeth School.

  • Year 5 visit the Royal Botanic Gardens!

    Published 17/12/21

    Year 5 enjoyed a wonderful trip to Kew Gardens this month where we learnt a lot about our science unit: living things in their habitats. We braved the Treetop Walkway and encouraged the grown ups to keep going when they complained of their legs hurting! We took part in workshops exploring flowers and grouping them; looking at plants under microscopes; dissecting plants and exploring plants from different habitats. We were lucky to have glorious weather that day and enjoyed a picnic under a humongous tree. We really loved exploring the Children's Garden where we climbed, giggled and had fun with our friends!

  • Eid Assembly

    Published 17/12/21

    At an assembly on ‘Ramadhan and Eid’ in April, the presenters, Iqra, Sara P, Danyal, Noah, Abdurrahman and Shoaib, revisited the true meaning of Ramadhan Eid, and explored some of the rituals around Ramadhan, focussing mainly on the Eid celebration. Ramadhan is the 9th month of the Islamic Lunar calendar. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) had a very important role during this month because some 1400 years –  the Qur’an, the Islamic Holy Book, was revealed to him in Ramadhan. As part of the Five Pillars of Islam, Muslims are required to fast for 29 to 30 days depending on the sighting of the moon. This year’s Ramadan started on Saturday 2nd of April. The presenters explored the reasons why Muslims fast during Ramadhan and who was exempt from fasting.

    They went on to show how Eid is celebrated throughout the world. Roxeth experienced a visual tour of culinary delights! They discovered that Eid al-Fitr is sometimes referred to as the Sugar Feast because large part of the meal one eats at the festival is desserts. However different countries around the world have different favourites. In Turkey classic Turkish sweets such as Baklava and Turkish delight are given to friends, family and neighbours as a present during Eid, or Seker Bayrami as it’s commonly known in the country. In Yeman Bint al sahn is the favourite Yemeni sweet. In English it’s sometimes called honey cake, and is topped with nigella seeds. In Russia they prefer to give savoury dumplings called ‘Manti’.

    These are filled with seasoned meat. In Bangladesh, a meat Korma is traditionally eaten, as well as various savoury pittas that are shared with family and friends.

    Children at Roxeth then took an active part in a ‘Ramadhan and Eid Assembly Quiz’. The Quiz Masters were ‘The 4 S’s’ Safa, Sana, Safa and Sara P. The girls conducted a quiz on Kahoot and the children were totally engaged in their quiz. It was a lively finale to the assembly!!
