Churchill’s War Room

On Monday 18th September, we went to the Churchill War Rooms. Once inside, we were shown a video from World War 2. We were handed out some devices that informed us about the different rooms. Interestingly, the people that worked there left the rooms in the same state as when they first went in.  We visited the meeting rooms, the dormitories and even saw Winston Churchill’s room!

When we arrived at the museum, we were given a grid each which needed to be filled in with information on Winston Churchill’s life. After watching a documentary on the interactive board which helped us learn more about the war and Churchill’s history, we visited different sections that covered Winston Churchill’s life; starting from his childhood and finishing off on the day he died. We learnt lots about him. For example, we did not know that he was a fine artist and that he was Queen Elizabeth’s II first prime minister. We have loved learning about his fascinating life and cannot wait to write our biographies on such an important figure.  Lona and Seryn.

Lucy took a photo of us and cut it in half. We put half of the photograph and then we drew the other side of our faces using lots of different colours. When we drew the other side we coloured it in neatly and in the lines.

We had to colour in our faces neatly and make sure that there was no gap. We also had to draw the other side of our faces the same as the photo so we had to concentrate and not rush it.

Roman

Looking closely at my photo, I added all the distinctive details of my face. If I made a mistake I would go over it again. In the background of the portrait we drew random horizontal and vertical lines but no too many so that it created squares and rectangles.

​To colour in our portraits we had to choose either cool or warm colours. Warm colours are red, orange, yellow and pink. The cool colours are blue, purple and green. We used these to colour in our faces, features and the background of our portrait. The effects are really cool. It’s like we have taken a photograph and coloured it in.

Lisa
For our portraits in Year 6 we used pop art as our inspiration and made our very own pop art portraits. We first, took our time to observe our photographs and  looked intently at our facial features . We had to be very careful when drawing our portraits so our pictures would come out great! We then coloured in our portraits in vibrant colours and added dots to give them depth. After that, we drew a thought bubble where we wrote our aspirations for the future.
Overall, the entire process was really fun are brilliant!

EYFS: Graduation

On Tuesday 11th July EYFS had a special ‘Graduation’ with our friends and parents. We were really excited to show our families our good behaviour, fabulous singing and also celebrate our excellent year of learning together. We sang ‘Baby Shark,’ ‘I Can Count to Twenty’ and enjoyed collecting our certificates whilst wearing our special, handmade graduation hats. At the end we sang ‘Dynamite’ and showed photos of all the fun learning we have done this year. After the Graduation ceremony we went to our classroom and had a refreshing drink and a biscuit with our families. We had a really lovely time and it we were so happy to see ALL of our fabulous families. We would like to take the time say a big thank you for supporting and celebrating with us. Thank you.

Last night, the year 5 from the Bridges Federation entertained audiences at the Royal Festival Hall with an outstanding performance. The children have been rehearsing for the past few weeks with the Splash team and their hard work and resilience paid off on the night!

Here is a message from Jo the artistic director on the Splash project:

‘The whole Splash team would like to pass on their congratulations to all the children that took part in ‘How High The Moon’ last night, we all thought they did a brilliant job and sounded & looked fantastic, performing with such amazing confidence & commitment. However, none of this would have been the success it was without you the teachers who supported the team during rehearsals & managed the task of dealing with all the paperwork.’

We are really proud of all the children and teaching staff who made this such a wonderful event!

Y5: Reading Cafe

Our last reading café events were held today in both schools for Year 5 children and parents. Thanks you to all the parents who were able to come and support your children. We had some great comments from you all.

 

I enjoyed reading with my mum coming in my classroom.

I learned that it is very enjoyable reading with your child and I should do it more often at home. It is great to be in the classroom! 🙂

Children are excited and some of them are deep in their thoughts.

I liked reading to my dad and helping my little sister with her reading as well

Y6: The Lion King

After weeks of rehearsals year 6 came together to perform an amazing version of The Lion King.

The preparation began with lots of line learning and mass singing rehearsals. The Circle of Life felt particularly relevant as Year 6 complete their journey through the ranks of Tower Bridge.

We worked a lot on embodying the animals and working out how the different herds interact with one another.

The result was a fully realised cast of characters who truly belonged in the jungle.  Year 6 and the staff of Tower Bridge truly did a brilliant job.
