Whilst many of us have been adjusting to life locked down, missing friends, family and loved ones, one very special individual has not only been working tirelessly at school to care for the pupils but has been doing her special bit (on her own) for frontline workers. Take a bow Miss Karla!
Miss Karla (nursery Teacher) has been spending her weekdays and weekends since lockdown manufacturing "scrubs" (the term for healthcare worker's protective clothing) huddled up on her lounge floor, surrounded by huge amounts of navy scrub material.
She uses a small sewing machine and her hands to stitch the attire for hours in her small London home.
Miss Karla, who has so far now hand stitched 40 sets of garments, said "it's such a nice thing to be doing something good and helpful for those in need"
All garments she has made are being shipped accross London to hospitals including the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel, The Homerton University Hospital, Hackney and Queens Hospital in Romford.
Miss Karla, we think you are our inspiration and you Miss, deserve a clap!
Today, 28th February 2020, St. Agnes school was stunned with the arrival of 4 rock stars in order to launch the brand new, mathematics initiative "Times Table Rockstars."
Richie Thriller, Kristi Gnecco, Verity Strummer and Mitzi Garcia, took time out of their busy schedule to reveal all about the Times Table Rock stars initiative.
Here's what the gang had to say:
"When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts you remember, the easier it is for you to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help students master the times tables! To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds!"
Children across the school, are now able to take part in a wide variety of times table games and activities as well as "slay" learning their times tables using online games and musical fun. See below for instructions if needed. Rock. On!
Last October, St Agnes took part in Let’s Count day. Each year group took part and we made a display of all the fantastic work that was produced. Thank you to all the children for taking part in our Let’s Count activities.
Our work was entered into the Let’s Count competition. We were runners up for our local area! We won £100 worth of school equipment vouchers! A great achievement!
Our school councillors chose what equipment we should buy. See what they bought below.

Thank you to all the children who took part in the First Holy Communion Assembly. It was a wonderful reminder of how important it is to receive the Sacrament of Communion regularly. Also a big thank you to parents for supporting your children and helping to make it a special occasion.
This last fortnight, St. Agnes were blessed with the birth and arrival of 4 beautiful ducks!
Out of the six original eggs that were delivered in an incubator, sadly, only four hatched!
We decided, that in keeping with the tradition of our faith, we had a beautiful, peaceful funeral in nursery. Our thoughts and prayers are with the ducks that are now in heaven with all of God's creatures who are no longer with us on earth.
We would like to announce the arrival of baby ducklings:
All of us will be keeping a close eye on them until they leave!
Congratulations to our Year 5 pupils Lexi, Daisy, Ciaran, Amadeo and Tyler who have art work based on Adoremus displayed in Westminster Cathedral. If you wish to see the fantastic work it will be on display until Friday 21st June 2019.
Year 2, 5 and 6 took part in African drumming sessions led by Stathis. They learned about the different pitches and tones the Djembe can produce as well as a song from Sierra Leone.
Every child left the session with smiles on their faces!
