Mayor’s Cup: Good Shepherd vs St Mary’s

Our fourth match of the season saw us take on St Mary’s at Ravenscourt Park.

The girls were first to play, they took the game to their opponents and spent most of the first half attacking. The second half saw the debut of Milka who played in midfield. We were very unlucky not to snatch a winning goal with Paloma going very close near the end of the game. It finished 0-0.

The boys also started on the front foot, denying St Mary’s any time or space. William scored his fourth and fifth goals of the season, both of them at close range. Tadhg rounded off the scoring with two goals of his own. Junix made a confident debut in defence. It finished 4-0. 

E-Safety: online appearances

We talked about how viewing images and videos online might affect our self-esteem. Each group roleplayed a scenario in which a friend offered advice and support to someone with negative feelings about their own appearance.

Our workshop celebrated influential black people in history who spoke out against injustice, including Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King Jr.

Because we are learning about justice in our religion topic and about the transatlantic slave trade in history, this workshop was the perfect way to gain a deeper understanding of injustices faced by so many.  

All Saints Day

What were they doing at Club 144’s first top secret meeting of the year?

Mayor’s Cup football vs Old Oak

Our girls’ and boys’ football teams played their first matches of the season against Old Oak. 
The girls played first in a fast and furious encounter that saw Rioghna make a series of brave saves in goal. The game ended 0-0.

The boys spent most of the first half camped in their opponents’ half and ended the half 1-0 up after Tadhg finished calmly after the ball zipped around the penalty area. A great second goal for Good Shepherd from William in the second half secured the win for the boys.

Black History Month

Science - Components of our Blood

We learned about the components of our blood in science and then made some 'blood smoothies', with different ingredients representing each of these components. They were delicious!

Can you remember which component each of the ingredients represented, as well as the functions of each component?

Drama and Role Play - A Midsummer Night's Dream

We explored the four 'worlds' of Shakespeare's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' through drama and role play. We look forward to finding out more about the story in this way.

Easy Riders Cycle Club

We had our first outing of the year to Wendell Park. I’m sure the other children in our lunchtime learn-to-ride club will be joining them on the next one!

We learned about the 5 ways to improve our mental wellbeing. We used the simple acronym 'GetCALM.' Can you remember what each of the letters in bold stand for?

H&F Summer Football Tournament @ Ravenscourt Park

The boys’ and girls’ football teams took part in the annual summer football tournament at Ravenscourt Park. They competed against seven other schools in several exciting matches. The teams were a mix of year five and six footballers. 
The girls’ team- captained by Gabrielle- won one and drew two group games. They qualified for the knock-out stages and played St.Stephen’s in the semi-final, narrowly losing 0-1. They finished joint third overall.
The boys also qualified for the knock-out stages after finishing second in their group. They won their semi-final against Brackenbury after the game went to a penalty shoot-out. Julian saved twice to ensure our victory. They faced St.Stephen’s in the final. A very close game ended 1-1. It went to sudden death penalties and Julian saved the day again with a great diving save, winning the match and crowning the boys’ team champions! 
The teamwork and support for one another on both teams during the tournament was great to see.

Sports Day 2021

We managed to avoid the rain and have some fun at Sports Day!

Activity Day at All Saints Catholic College

Year 5 were invited to the annual Activity Day at All Saints Catholic College. We split into two groups to try out pizza-making and trampolining.

Sports Festival @ Burlington Danes Academy

Year 5 were invited to take part in a sports festival at Burlington Danes Academy. We worked in teams and competed in a variety of fun sporting events. The weather was lovely and everyone had a great time. It was the first sporting event the class (and anyone from the school) has been able to take part in since the indoor athletics competition last February! 

The Young Shakespeare Company perform Hamlet

We love Shakespeare at the Good Shepherd! The Young Shakespeare Company made their annual visit and performed a fantastic production of Hamlet for us.

Club 144 summer meeting

What secret things were they up to this time?
Clue: there was lots of adding up of decimals and it was something to do with the European Championships...

Sphero Temple Run!

We had to code Sphero to escape the monster by following the path. There was a wild river to cross, too. Some of us built a seesaw, others built a ramp or a bridge. Next week, we will debug our code and add matrix animations and sound effects

Using block code with Sphero

We started using block code to control Sphero. Each pair managed to make their Sphero move in a square shape and designed a simple LED matrix animation to show the shape we were drawing. Some groups even managed to code a route in the shape of a triangle. Tricky!

Club 144 Meeting: The Egg Drop Challenge!

We explored the physics of dropping an egg from a height of 3 metres. We worked out that we needed to:

 Increase the time over which the egg was brought to rest.

 Decrease the egg's velocity at the time of the crash.

Milka, Caoimhin, Olivia and William won the challenge. They succeeded in protecting their egg, designing a parachute with padding to absorb some of the force of the impact. Well done to them!

Using apparatus helps us in Maths

Unfortunately, the photocopier came to life too late in the day today so please find below the homework for this week.


1. Learn the spellings below for a test on Thursday.  

2. Mathletics.

3. Read your reading book to an adult.

4. We have a backlog of people with Talk Homework topics from last week, so if you want to share your

    thoughts next week we will fit you in.

Hi everybody

Hope you are all enjoying the snow and ice.  I have attached some work for you to do if you find yourself at a loose end.

You can choose which comprehension exercises you want to do.  You will see that some are easier than others.  You don't need to download/print the documents.  You can just use paper to write the answers or do your Snow Day writing. 

If you want to plan a story involving snow, you can write your story when we return to school. 

You don't need to do everything that I have attached.  I just thought I'd give you some choice.


Stay safe.

Year 1 2016-2017

Year 1's Pirate Banquet!!

Gunnersbury Triangle Nature Reserve

Cooking a Filipino snack - Turon

We made a Filipino snack called Turon. Turon is a Philippine snack made of thinly sliced bananas, dusted with brown sugar, rolled in a spring roll wrapper and fried.

Traditional Philippine Dance- Tinikling

Tinikling is a traditional Philippine dance which originated during the Spanish colonial era. The dance involves two people beating, tapping, and sliding bamboo poles on the ground and against each other in coordination with one or more dancers who step over and in between the poles in a dance.


Everybody in Year 1 had the chance to either dance or clap the bamboo poles! It was tricky but everybody gave it a good go! Well done Year 1!

International Week

This week, we have been learning all about the Philippines. Today we had the opportunity to try on some traditional Filipino costumes. 

Laudato Si' week in Year 1

This week we have been learning about how we can respond to Pope Francis' letter Laudato Si'. We have placed a particular focus on recycling. We have learnt how to sort our rubbish so that we waste less, we have learnt how to identify what items can be recycled, we have made place mats entirely out of used plastic bags and we have also brought in our own mini recycling projects! They have been amazing!


Remember: Reduce, reuse, recycle!

Thank you Emily (Year 6) for inspiring the school to create Friendship Benches! What a fantastic idea!

Year 1's trip to Windsor Castle

Year 1's Jack and the Beanstalk assembly. Well done Year 1!
