Parliament Visit

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

Yesterday, our school council visited the Palace of Westminster to learn about the history of Parliament as well as the art and architecture of the buildings for which they have come to be so recognised. This was a great experience for the children who explored the House of Commons, House of Lords, Westminster Hall (the last remaining part of the original Palace) and the Central Lobby at the very heart of the Parliamentary Estate.

Our governors were also busy and spent the day in school. All governors commented on how their visit had helped them in the work they do to help all of us move towards our vision of being an outstanding and inclusive school. The governors enjoyed experiencing the wonderful work going on in our classrooms and felt privileged to be part of such a warm and special school.

Science Week

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

The children have had a really exciting week developing their science knowledge and skills. Years 2 and 4 focused on Insect investigations, classification and using microscopes. Years 3 and 6 developed their forensic skills through their topic “Forensic Investigation Crime Scene”.

Reception and Y1 set up a laboratory in their classrooms and participated in lots of experiments. There were also lots of science related activities in music lessons, for example Y1 made shakers and found out that different sounds could be made using different sized grains. On behalf of all the children and staff we would like to congratulate Miss Matthews for all her hard word and enthusiasm

The Royal Microscopical Society Educational Visit

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

A group of children from Years 3- 5 started Science week working with the Royal Microscopical Society and the Worshipful Company of Scientific Instrument makers. It was an extremely fun and informative day which gave the children an opportunity to develop their investigative skills. We are really excited about the planned activities for science week. It is wonderful that it has coincided with the solar eclipse next Friday, which we plan to observe as a whole school.

Teachers Triumph (again)!

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

A team of teachers chalked up victory at the OLM quiz to extend their impressive record as champions. 

The quizmaster tested participants on their knowledge of a diverse range of trivia and we were also treated to a lovely homemade curry. We would like to thank FOLM for organising such an entertaining evening.

Which team of parents will step up to the challenge of ending the teachers' winning run?

Spirituality Week

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

At OLM, we believe our role is to educate the “whole” child and that the spiritual growth of our children is as important as their academic development.

Work has been undertaken in class to raise awareness of spiritual issues and to encourage the children to think for themselves and consider important questions. This work has been supplemented by our Year One Liturgy and Mr O’Shannessy’s assembly.

Spirituality week has been anticipated and enjoyed by staff and children alike. Its success can be attributed to careful planning and resourcing by Miss Haugh and we would like to thank her for her hard work and commitment.

Educational Visits

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

We are keen to take our children on educational visits .Our Year 3 children have recently been to St Albans and our Year 2 children visited St Paul’s Cathedral and The Monument. Both visits are examples of informal learning environments - a lifelong process in which individuals acquire attitudes, values, skills and knowledge from daily experience.

It has been a busy few days!!

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

It has been a busy few days!  Year 1 had a visit from a vet, which the children found extremely informative and enjoyable.  Next week, Year 4 will be working with the Wild Science Company to develop their knowledge of food chains during a hands on fun packed morning.  We welcomed Headteachers from local schools to see the excellent RE programme and to share our good practice.

Happy New Year

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

The Spring term started yesterday with a mass which was attended by members of our parish community and was a lovely way for the school to begin the year. Members of the parish commented how wonderful our children were during mass.

 

Staff have had two training sessions this week relating to organising and updating book areas within classrooms. I would like to thank the Friends of OLM for their hard work in raising funds to contribute to this project. Staff and pupils are very excited about this initiative as we know it will lead to more enthusiastic readers at OLM and greater use of our resources.

 

Happy New Year!

National Young Mathematicians' Award

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

 

Four children from Year 6 took part in the second round of the National Young Mathematicians' Award at Explore Learning in Crouch End on Wednesday. The children worked as a team to tackle a challenging maths puzzle, listening to each other's ideas and then presenting their findings to the judges. Miss O'Sullivan and Ms. Matassini were impressed with the children's enthusiasm and how they focused on the very difficult task. Only five schools in the whole country go through to the final and one of them could be OLM!

Children In Need

admin on: Our Lady of Muswell School Blog

 

We have had a really exciting day raising money for Children in Need. There were some amazing outfits and the children brought in lots of pennies for Pudsey. 

 

All of our children participated in the penny trail throughout the corridors of school, which they enjoyed thoroughly! FOLM also raised money by organising a cake sale.

 

Thank you for all your support in making our day so enjoyable and also for helping to raise money for Children in Need. We are still counting but so far we have raised £630!!
