We performed in our Winter Concert and showed off all our speaking and singing talents to our parents. We sang lots of different songs and learnt lots of Makaton signs too! Our parents were really proud of us and we had lots of fun showing our work from this topic and being really brave on the stage!

Daisy the Donkey

Our KS1 Christmas performance is the highlight of the Autumn term and I’m sure you’ll agree that this year was no exception! The children executed the songs with such enthusiasm and enjoyment which was only matched  by the quality of their performance! Well done to our talented children and thanks to all staff members who worked so hard to enable the children to perform so confidently!

A special thank you goes to COSTAIN and STREAMWIRE for funding the amazing costumes and props.

Lantern Parade 2016

On Monday 5th December, the federation choir and Year 5 from Snowsfields and Tower Bridge gathered to parade their lanterns from Potter’s Fields to Hay’s Galleria. The Mayor of Southwark turned on the lights and we all sang carols, led by the choir. We certainly caught the attention of people leaving their offices and tourists by the river. It was a wonderful event. Thanks so much to the children, staff and parents who came. Thankyou to our partners –  TeamLondonBridge and Potter’s Fields for giving the children such a wonderful opportunity.

This course was a led by Pauline Hinchliffe a NACE Award Challenge assessor who provided the coordinators with the foundations that support good provision and guidance on strategies for creating high expectations and challenge in the classroom.

Rotherhithe Bridge

Andrew Dawes from @ReFormArchi shared with our KS2 classes some interesting facts about the proposed  pedestrian and cyclist bridge which will connect south east London to the Docklands.

Did you know that there are 32 bridges across the River Thames to the west of Tower Bridge and only one to the east?

If the project goes ahead, the Rotherhithe Bridge will be the longest bascule opening bridge in the world.
