They then headed outside for a community litter pick with parents and staff.
Philippa Saving, assistant headteacher, said: "Grenfell United believes in communities working together. Last year we donated to foodbanks and this year we held a community litter pick.
"It's gone really well, we were really pleased.
"We have some families here who did know people who passed away and we had some of our staff go down and help after the fire."
Schools can hold a Green for Grenfell Day from June 14, the anniversary of the inferno, until June 28.
