Battle of the Books

On Thursday 15th June a Battle of the Books competition took place at The Roche School, Wandsworth. Six schools participated including Beatrix Potter, All Saints, Hotham, The Roche School, Granard and Riversdale. The event pitches teams of able Year 4 readers together to test their memory, reading skills, creativity and team-work, based on a series of books they have read as a group during the year. It included a weakest link style quiz and the performance of a drama piece which they had to prepare on the day. The children also had to produce a piece of artwork based on one of the books.

After an intense and rewarding competition, this year’s winners were announced as Beatrix Potter.  Our team did incredibly well and came third overall.

STEM Week - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
