Our pupil school council took a trip to meet the Mayor of Greenwich, Cllr Dominic Mbang at the Town Hall in Woolwich this week. They toured the grand building, marveled at the 18 carat gold ceremonial chains, and even got to sit in the debating chamber and ask the Mayor questions about his role in office. Thank you @dominicmbang and @royal_greenwich for a wonderful experience!
Year 3 were taken back in time to the land of the Pharaohs to discover what every day life was like in Ancient Egypt. A great time was had making engraved cartouche necklaces, weaving reed mats, grinding buckwheat and playing traditional board games. #Curiosity #BeBlackheathPrep ...

Kindness is one our 7 school values and to mark World Kindness Day we`ve set our pupils their penultimate Challenge 200 task for our bicentenary year. Across the school, each year group will be carrying out 200 acts of kindness and helping to make a difference to those around them, in the classroom, on the playground or at home. We`re looking forward to sharing some of their kind deeds over the next few weeks!
From our youngest Nursery pupils to our eldest in Year 6, our whole school came together for a special service of remembrance today with music and poetry performed by pupils to mark the occasion #lestweforget

Today we said farewell to our wonderful Year 6 pupils, most of whom have been with us since they were 3 years old. Over the years we have watched them grow into the wonderfully talented, capable and well rounded young people that they are. And even though they are now moving on to their senior schools, they will always be part of the Blackheath Prep community! We wish them well in the next exciting chapter of their lives.
Superb performances delivered by our Year 6 in their musical adaptation of Terry Pratchett`s The Amazing Maurice & His Educated Rodents. Well done to all the townsfolk and rat performers who entertained parents and pupils this week.
