LPESSN Awards 2017

This year Adele and Lateefah were nominated for Primary Sports Leader of the year. Sadly they missed out on winning, however we are very proud of all their hard work and the hard work of their fellow sports leaders. Without them the federation would not have won Healthy School of the Year.

We are delighted that we won Healthy School of the Year!

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.

Special thanks to Michelle and Lisa for the staging and costumes.

Tammy and Ajita for their creative input.

Harry for staging, directing and inspiring the children to put in effort to make the show the success it was.

Year 6 for making sure they worked hard in all their roles to make it the success it was.

 

Thank you too to the staff and parents who supported the show and ensured lines were learnt and the hall was free for rehearsals.

The seaside was very fun! I loved the beach playground and I liked finding seashells and rocks. And I got to put my feet in the water! It was so much fun. –Sophia

 

 

 

 

I loved the seaside because I got to go in the water. I saw a lighthouse, big waves and a really long pier. –Malak

 

 

 

It was excellent! We got to go in the ocean and the water was freezing! My favourite part was finding seashells! -Giorgi.

We do love to be beside the seaside!

The year two classes across the federation had an amazing time at the seaside this week!

Here are some of lovely recounts the children produced in Orange class.

 

‘We got to school at 8:15 and excitedly walked to the coach to meet the children from Tower Bridge school.Then we drove to the beach. When we arrived, we started to play with our buckets and spades in the sand. Next, we had our scrumptious lunch then played for a while. The water was a bit chilly and the adults took photos of us playing in the sea. We had a class photo and everyone was smiling to remember this fantastic trip. Finally, I tiredly got back and felt sleepy. I slept all the way home.’

Ayman

‘We went to school very early and got on the coach. We all went to Southend and got our buckets to make sand castles and some people were finding shells. Next we were so hungry that we had some lunch on the beach. After, we were splashing water! It was fun!

Finally, we were sleeping on the coach because we were so tired after a lovely day.’

EYFS at the Aquarium!

This week Early Years went on a fantastic adventure by bus to the London Aquarium. We were excited to see the sharks, turtles, penguins, jellyfish, starfish,   seahorses as well as a variety of other sea creatures and plant life. We especially loved walking on glass over the shark tank (but some of us were scared!) Afterwards we had a class picnic next to the London Eye. Thank you to all adults who helped us to have a safe trip.
