Our Girls' team travelled to Woodridge school for a Barnet cup game. The team played very well in what was a very even match. After a goalless first half, it was Woodridge who took the lead.

The match then went straight to 'sudden death' penalties in the fading  Totteridge light and unfortunately we ended up losing 2-1. A great effort and fantastic team spirit, well done team and

Y4 had a fantastic opportunity to be inspired, and explore their curiosity about the wonderful and wonderous world we live in. They spent the day with  scientists and learnt about atoms. The children used their imagination to look at the microscopic world and observe how it influences our more familiar world.  The day was filled with enquiries, investigations, art activities and  ended with  'The electron dance'. Some of the facts from the day: 


 *The world is made of tiny atoms.
