Lily has been busy in the kitchen; she made chocolate covered Matzah for Passover and double chocolate muffins (obviously not for Passover). She also made an Easter Tree which she had great fun making. And she really enjoyed the Charlie and The Chocolate Factory reading sessions. Lily then created a delicious melt in the middle chocolate cake in a mug! Which she said was fun to make and was super yummy.

Oyku has been busy keeping up with his Reading Challenge and has created some lovely images to accompany his reading. He is now ready to move onto the Silver Reading Challenge.

Mrs De Souza Dark set the children the challenge of producing a piece of artwork over Easter; Humza spent some of his time painting the tiger and creating a card for Captain Moore, which he plans to send to him for his birthday next week – so thoughtful!

Jessica wrote an article on Home-Schooling which was published in First News within the ‘Junior Journalist’ section.

Rohan, 5TW, has worked really hard on this illustration of the warrior princess Wish, from Cressida Cowell’s The Wizards of Once, which his class and 5TB have been enjoying.

We are very proud of Belmontian Alfie who is raising money for Barnet Hospital. He has set himself a challenge by rollerblading 100km between now and his 12th birthday, on 15th May! On Day 1 he covered 2.59 km and has already raised £350, which is incredible, as the original target was £100! He has now increased his target to £500. If you would like to donate, please visit https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/alfiecox2020

We look forward to getting updates of Alfie whizzing around over the next few weeks as he raises money for an incredible local hospital.

Creating PPE

Throughout the Easter break, Mr Perrin and Mr Warden, along with Belmontians Alex Courts, Duncan McNaught, James Sansome and Sam Warren have continued to produce hundreds of visors using their 3D printers. Once assembled, these visors are then delivered to hospitals and surgeries across London.

If you don’t have a 3D printer but would like to get involved, please look at Google Classroom as YVA solicitors (North Finchley) have a way you can help: https://www.yvasolicitors.com/how-to-make-a-visor/

Mrs Van Der Westhuizen has been busy sewing different items which the NHS need such as drawstring bags and scrubs. She is working as a part of a group, who have collectively pledged to create over 700 sets of scrubs and 1,475 bags to donate to local hospitals such as Watford General.
