Nite Owl visit

November 10th 2020

In line with this half-term’s EYFS topic ‘Day and Night’, and Year 1’s ‘Senses’, the Nite Owls came in to do a special demonstration for the children. Seeing the beautiful and fascinating birds flying in the hall has inspired some great artwork, too. You can see it in the gallery below.

Happy Diwali to all our Rokesly Families

November 6th 2020

The children have been finding out all about Diwali this week. They have listened to the story in our special assembly, made and painted diva lamps and created rangoli patterns as part of our celebrations. Happy Diwali everyone!


April 3rd 2020

 Rokesly Infant and Nursery school is closed to all but a small number of children. School staff are working on a rota to look after a group of children whose parents are essential workers.

During this time of National school closure, we think it is important to stay in touch, give you updates, and also give your child tasks and activities to support their learning at home.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Happy Ramadan 2020 to all our Rokesly families spending the holy month in prayer, fasting and reflection. May your homes be filled with warmth and peace. We were very lucky last week to receive a special delivery from Hamza and his mum – some delicious Ramadan treats to share while we are working. Thank you Hamza!

Goodbye Key Worker pod

July 17th 2020

This week we said a final farewell to our last pod of Key Worker children. Since March, the children have been coming in to school while their parents do essential work to help the country through the crisis. We have loved working with the children and they have grown into a very special Rokesly family all of their own. On our last day, they celebrated being together with a special party.

Masked Crusaders say ENGINES OFF!

November 8th 2019

Polution around schools is a real problem for our children and we are always looking for ways to tackle it. We joined the campaign because we want people to turn their engines off rather than letting idling engines polute our air. In the week before half term we had an assembly about engine idling, and spoke to the children about why it’s not good, and how we can all tackle it. Over half term the children made their own fun ‘anti-pollution masks’ out of recycled material-look in a handy ‘How to’ guide in book bags.

On Friday 8th November, the children used their masks to transform into ‘Masked Crusaders’ against engine idling, along with children in other schools across London.

School Memories Week

Theme Week October 2019

Thank you to all our lovely parents and family members who came in to school to share their school memories with the children.

The children also learned about history beyond living memory with trips to Bruce Castle Museum. We also had Victorian classrooms, country dancing and traditional games here in school. It was a lot of fun and we hope the week inspired some school memories for the children to cherish when they are older.

Gardening morning

March 8th 2020

Thanks to the parents, children and other helpers who gave up their Sunday morning to dig, plant, get muddy and set up the new areas in the Reception playground. The weather held and the results are great. Thank you.

World Book Day March 5th 2020

This year at Rokesly Infants and Nursery we were treated to a riot of colourful character costumes for World Book Day. As well as dressing up, the children also brought in their favourite books to share and staff visited different classes to share a story, too. It was an incredible day – thanks for all the help from our brilliant Rokesly families!
