Year 2: Reading Cafe

We had an amazing show of parents for the Year 2 Reading Café! It was clear that the children love books and enjoyed sharing them with all the adults.

“I enjoyed reading with mummy.”

“I like reading with my mum because it makes me smart.”

“I enjoyed reading “The Moon Jet” because Kipper used his imagination to see space and I like space.”

“I like reading with you.”

“I learnt new words in all sorts of books.”

Year 1 Assembly

Last Friday Year 1 performed our class assembly. Our topic is on monsters and we performed a play about a good monster who was judged by the way she looked.

“I played a good monster. I had to go in the cupboard and then Temitayo and Temidayo took me to the zoo. I enjoyed when I came back to my family.” Angelina

“I liked the part when I went to get the banners.” Franky

“I enjoyed it when everyone said yes when Temitayo asked them to get the monster.” Zeinab

Thank you to all the parents who came to watch. It was great to see so many of you and we hope you enjoyed it!​

DSC06557DSC06554

 

 

 

On Wednesday 3rd May Reception had the lovely opportunity to visit the Science Museum! We had a wonderful experience of getting to take the tube and we were very sensible and responsible during our travel. It was very exciting to travel in this way! When we arrived at the Museum we got to visit some interactive workshops, including the Garden and Pattern Pod in which we got to explore patterns in the world and lots of sensory changes and experiences. We had lots of fun investigating a new environment! Well done Reception for not only being really safe on our trip but also having lots of fun and trying out new things!

Potters Fields Herb Garden

 

Ahead of International Herb Day, which took place on Saturday 6th May, a pop up urban herb garden was erected on Potters Fields. The horticultural display celebrated the benefits of growing and cultivating your own herbs. Gardening expert Charlie Dimmock was on hand explaining how to make the most of small spaces and how herbs can be a great introduction into gardening. Our  

School Council members and Science Leaders were invited by Team London Bridge to attend this event and were eager to hear Charlie’s her top tips. 

We are really lucky and extremely grateful to Team London Bridge for donating the Herb Garden to the Bridges Federation. The move will kick start our garden improvement project.

‘We are really looking forward to welcoming some volunteers from Team London Bridge and the Belmond Group on 12th May to help us develop our vegetable patch and grow our own produce!’

Year 1: Reading Cafe

Thank you so much to all the parents who were able to come to Year 1 today to read with their children and their friends.

The children enjoyed it immensely!

 

“It was fun; I love the princess and the pea; I learnt what characters I like the best.”

 

I like today because there are lots of adults here to see and support us read. It was fun.

Ducklings in EYFS!

Caterpillar and Butterfly classes have absolutely loved having the ducks at school.  They enjoyed watching them hatch and were fascinated with them when they were walking around. The children were gentle with them and quiet when they were sleeping and when we got them out.  They loved watching them paddle in the water and have talked about them nonstop. What a wonderful experience it was for them!

‘’When they come out they are all wet’’ Enzo

‘’ They hatch from the shell, they have to work out to get out and then they need a rest.’’ Ridwan​
