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.

I had so much fun! I liked putting my feet in the water. –Tilly

 

 

 

 

 

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.

 

 

 

 

It was so fun! We got to wet our feet and I had lots of fun when I was   playing in the sand and on the       playground with my friends. –Ricardo

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.

A Tale Unfolds filming project with Yellow Class

We have been working really hard with a company called ‘A Tale Unfolds’ on a film making project about the negative impact plastic has on the environment and especially on sea life. Our main objective was to create a film to encourage people to stop throwing plastic and all sort of non-recyclable rubbish. We want people to think how the future will be if the earth surface was covered in refuse. On the 19th June, we went to the IMAX cinema to watch the film we made. We were amazed to see ourselves on the giant screen. We had a great time!
Thank you to Dominic and everyone else.

EYFS at the Sea Life Aquarium

DSC06985The children in Butterfly and caterpillar classes had a fantastic time at Sea Life Aquarium on the South Bank. It has been a very successful trip and a lot of it was thank you to the people who assisted us with our volunteers and adult ratios so a huge thank you – it made the day run smoothly especially when it got really busy!
We had a great trip and we even had members of the public on the bus and bus stops commenting on the children’s excellent behaviour and their knowledge about the sea animals. We staggered our arrival times and we were really pleased to have a bus driver who understood the needs of the children and waited for us all to be safely seated before driving on. The aquarium staff were very welcoming and all the adults who came with us took excellent care of the children and discussed with them the different animals we saw. This was a very rich experience for all the children. I think everyone coped really well with the heat and we had lots of water and shade break too!DSC06982DSC07015DSC_0353DSC06980DSC07009IMG_5744DSC07017DSC07006
