Local History club visited All Saints Church in Church Street. They met Father Stuart who told them about the history of the church, they did some brass rubbings and were even allowed to ring the bell!

The Local History club is busy preparing their entry into Enfield's Blue Plaque Competition. They have visited the blue plaque for Charles Coward in Chichester Road and have researched his story. The presented that story in our Remembrance Day assemblies, impressing our guests from the Royal British Legion with their knowledge. Then we had to decide which "unsung hero" should get a blue plaque. We asked Mrs Margaret Darling, a former teacher at the school to come to tell us about her mother-in-law, Mrs Joyce Darling. Joyce Darling has been associated with the school and the church for years (in fact her mother was one of the original pupils when the school opened in 1912!) Now we know more about her, we will spend the rest of the club sessions making our own blue plaque to enter in the competition.

This is the finished blue plaque for Joyce Darling. All of the symbols were researched and designed by club members who also each made one of the poppies in the wreath. Mrs Pearson put everything together in the Christmas holidays.​

The Local History Club visited the house in Chichester Road that has an English Heritage blue plaque to honour Charles Coward who lived there between 1945 and 1976. They found out that Charles Coward rescued prisoners from Auschwitz Concentration Camp in WW2.

In STEM Club we tried to make the longest strip of paper possible from an A4 sheet then we made structures out of spaghetti and marshmallows.

On a rainy day Bike Club learnt how to repair punctures.

They had to find the puncture by putting a part of the inner tube into water.

After the puncture was repaired, Lamiek and Arun replaced the wheel on the bike.

We had to design and make contraptions that would protect a raw egg that we dropped from head height. Some were more successful than others!


We looked at tessellating images by M C Escher and tried to do some of our own.


We made volcanoes using the reaction between vinegar and bicarbonate of soda to make them erupt..


In STEM Club we learnt about chromatography - we saw how coloured inks separate into different colours - and gravity. We balanced a spoon and fork on the end of a pencil and made robots which could balance if we altered their centre of gravity.


We made times table chatterboxes and were amazed by some mathmagic about the number 1089.

We used the robot arm simulator and a real robotic arm.

We also learnt how to balance drinks cans. (Other brands of fizzy drinks are available!)


We designed Escher-style tessellations using made the designs into these awesome posters!


We started to put together a geodesic dome (but unfortunately we ran out of time).


Three generations of Joyce Darling's family came to an assembly where we explained what all the motifs on the plaque meant. Please see the PowerPoint presentation if you want to find out more.

The Local History Club were awarded their prize at the Forty Hall Village Fete in May. they met the Mayor of Enfield and attended a special afternoon tea with their families, members of Mrs Darling's family and other prize winners.

The Local History Club spent their prize money at the London Canal Museum. They dug tunnels through sand castles and competed to see who could build the strongest bridge; they went on a canal boat along the Regent’s Canal going through Islington Tunnel and City Road lock; they became museum curators cataloguing some of the museum’s artefacts; and they made (and ate!) ice cream in the same way the Victorians would have done. It was a brilliant day out!​

We designed and built boats out of polystyrene tiles, balloons, straws and kitchen foil to see whose could hold the greatest weight.

The Pillowcase Project after-school club led an assembly explaining what the project was about. They explained what the Red Cross did to help people in emergencies; taught the rest of the school how to "breathe in colour"; talked about what items would be needed in an emergency; and how to make sure you have contact details for everyone in your family.
