Donation of Books to Upton Cross (2 images)

We have been very lucky to receive a very large amount of books that have been donated to us by Mr S Hepden who is the CO of a book company in Greenwich. The books have been distributed throughout the school and the children are really enjoying the books- some children have even written special thank you letters on behalf of all of us at Upton Cross. ​

Debating Competition (1 images)

Last half term, a selection of debaters across our two sites took part in a national debating competition. The competition was held at our school with just under 200 children and adults arriving to debate on the night. Our teams did a fantastic job and we won 5 out of the 8 debates that took part on the night, meaning we are through to the next round in March. Our debaters are practicing very hard to ensure they do equally (if not better) in our next competition! Well done debaters!

Cornwall Residential - Sept 2016 (23 images)

In September, 30 of our Year 5 and 6 children visited Cornwall for one week. They boarded a train and set off to Liskeard in Cornwall for 5 days packed full of fun and adventure. After the majority of Monday was spent travelling, everyone arrived in Cornwall tired out after their journey but eager for what adventures were to unfold in the week ahead. There was no time to spare, we were we quickly whisked away to Upton Cross Primary School where we explored the school grounds and their local area.

Year 6 - V&A Museum visit (13 images)

The children went to the V&A museum on the 27th of June to investigate Islamic patterns. From this they have created their own Islamic patterns using geometric shapes and Arabic writing. The children learnt that Islamic patterns avoid figurative images such as humans and animals and they tend to include geometric designs which are often build on combinations of repeated squares and circles, which may be overlapped to form intricate and complex patterns which include a wide variety of tessellations. The children then created tessellations using 2D shapes.

During the week the children conquered their fears, took part in team building activities and enjoyed a variety of outdoor tasks and challenges.

Debate Mate Cup Final (7 images)

On Monday 25th April, 11 of our Y5 and 6 debators attended a Debate Mate Cup Final at Westminster University in Central London. Many primary schools, from across London, attended the competition where a number of motions were debated. Both teams did a fantastic job winning all of their debates, with one of the teams reaching the final. The motion for the final debate was 'This House Would Ban Homework.' Our debaters did an amazing job, debating under great pressure and in front of a huge audience. They received a place as runners up and received a medal for their hard work.

Debating Competition at the Houses of Parliament (4 images)

On Thursday 11th February, 9 debaters from Year 5 and 6 attended a competition at the Houses of Parliament. They took part in two unprepared debates around the motions: 'Homework should be banned' and 'Sugar should be banned'. Both our teams did amazingly well and won both debates. We will let you know our position out of all of the primary schools when the league table is published. We also received a special mention from debating fan Daniel Radcliffe, otherwise known as 'Harry Potter'. You can see his personal message in the photo. Well done again to all those involved in the Upton Cross Debating Society.

On Thursday 10th December, a group of Year 5 and 6 teachers, parents and children made their way to Regents Street in central London for a Christmas Family Trip. They took a leisurely stroll down Regents Street, looking at the Christmas festive lights. We even saw Santa on his travels! They finally ended up at the world famous toy shop, Hamleys. There was time for some Christmas shopping before we sat down for some food at a local MacDonald's! Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the trip!
