Barnet Music Festival

Our Key Stage 2 Livingstone Choir performed brilliantly at the Barnet Music Festival on Tuesday. They all worked incredibly hard learning six festival songs as well as our own individual item at weekly rehearsals for months. On the day, they made us all so proud as they sang their hearts out on stage in front of a live, enthusiastic audience at the Arts Depot. Well done to all of our choir! Keep singing!

This week in the Nursery we have been reading The Train Ride. The children painted the background frieze for the story so that they could act it out. Tameem is busy painting the houses that could be seen from the train. Excellent concentration!


Dacian is busy painting the doors and the houses for our train ride frieze. He really enjoyed doing this painting and worked so carefully. Excellent job!


Kingfisher Nursery

Kingfisher Nursery have had a wonderful week exploring The Train Ride.

We spent time looking at the different scenes along the journey, from the farm to the seaside! We used this as an opportunity to enjoy sensory play in the sand, building our own sandcastles and looking at all the things you would find at the seaside.

Kingfisher nursery worked brilliantly at making their own trains using shapes and adding their own faces as the train drivers, just like in the story!


This week, Reception have been working very hard on their graduation show. We are learning our lines, using our big voices and practising our songs and dances every day. Please continue to learn at home, we have sent your child's lines home with them.


Achievement Awards!

Jonathan - for trying hard in phonics and writing this week. You are working so hard, keep it up!

Year 1

This week, Year 1 have continued to learn about Queen Elizabeth II. We compared our Queen with Queen Victoria, and discussed main events that occurred during both reigns. We also learnt how we celebrated our Queen's Platinum Jubilee. What fantastic historians they are! Please have a discussion about what they've learnt in history lessons; I am sure they'd love to share their knowledge with you.


Achievement Awards!

Achievement awards this week to go to Kigen and Biori for their excellent descriptions of how we celebrated the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

Year 2

Another busy week in Year 2! We have started our Seaside Topic and in English the children role-played the story 'Class Three All At Sea' by Julia Jarman.

In Maths we are revising telling the time looking at o'clock, half past, quarter past, quarter to and five minute intervals. Please practise that at home and ask questions about duration of events (e.g. if I leave school at 3.15 and arrive home at 3:30, how long does it take me to go home?)

We also completed our Computing topic but we strongly recommend that children log in Purple Mash and the VLE to explore the programmes available.

Homework: CGP Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar p. 2-3

Achevement Awards!

Achievement awards today go to Anwen for her brilliant pirate description and Edward for being a great role model in class.

Kingfisher 1

Another very busy week in Kingfisher 1!

In Maths the children have been subtracting, they have all been impressing with their understanding.

In English we enjoyed reading 'Mog and the Baby.' The children listened well and were able to talk about and answer questions about what happened and the likes and dislikes of the characters. They all produced some fabulous writing, well done!

Achievement Awards!

This week's achievement award goes to Deni for his excellent typing of his weekend news, keep up the good work!

Year 3

Time to learn about time! This week in Maths we have started reading analogue clocks to tell the time to the neatest minute.

In English, we have continued to explore newspaper features ready for our big write next week. We have learnt about using conjunctions, -ly openers and using journalistic phrases.

In the afternoon, our foundation subject has been art. Our art focus is all about landscapes and we have explored different sketching techniques and using water colours.

Also, please don't forget about our school trip to the Roald Dahl Museum on Tuesday. Please arrive at school at 8:15.

Year 4 have been learning about angles and properties of shapes. We have been identifying angles and comparing and ordering them. In English, we have started planning for our diary next week and have looked at a range of techniques to create informal language. In Science, we have been looking at living things and their habitats, which they have absolutely loved!

Year 5

This week, Year 5 have been learning about reflection and symmetry in Maths, and in English they wrote their balanced arguments about whether Cameron should have the xenotransplant or not.

In computing, the children have been learning about digital consent and how to protect themselves and their friends online. They know that they should have private accounts on social media (when they're old enough to have one), talk to a trusted adult about their online worries, and to block and report 'trolls'.

Today was Mrs Horsewood's last day at Livingstone. She has had a fantastic four- month placement with us and the children will really miss her.

Achievement Awards!

This week's awards go to Katerina for her excellent understanding on the Tudors, and to Leo for his work on reflection. Well done!

Year 6

This week, Year 6 have really impressed us with their swimming. We were pleasantly surprised at how well they could all swim and what some of them have retained since they went swimming last, pre-Covid.

On Thursday, for swimming, children need to bring in a pair of pyjamas to wear over their swimming costumes - no onesies. Thank you.

They are also very busy learning their lines. Please encourage them to practice at home as we only have three weeks until we raise the curtain on our first performance!

On Monday, the children will be consolidating their learning in Science and dissecting a lamb's heart. The children are very enthusiastic and I hope this paves the way to creating some scientists among them.

Some of Y6 still don't have a bottle of water in with them everyday. We don't have communial cups in the classroom so please send them in with water.


Achievement Awards!

This week's achievement awards go to Hadiya and Jamie for their resilience and determination during swimming. The progress you've both already made is phenomenal. Keep up the hard work.

Kingfisher 2

We had a great trip to Paradise Park at the beginning of the week. All the children had a fantastic time, visiting the dinosaurs, animals and playground.

In English this week, the children have been writing their final version of their senses poem about the woodland. Each boy had a really good go at using rhyme and alliteration to add detail to their poems and did a fab job!

Our maths topic moved on to look how long things last or take to do. Using a start time and an end time the children worked to identify, compare and order these durations.

Achievement Awards!

Well done to the whole of KF2 on their successful trip on Monday! They were a credit to the school.

Mario also deserves a special mention for his great work this week. He wrote a lovely poem ‘In the Forest’ and has been working hard all week!
