Bridges at Bett 2017

On Thursday the Digital Leaders from the federation went to the Excel Exhibition Centre to look at all the new products and ideas to enhance ICT provision at the schools. Here is their report:

Today we had a fun experience coming to BETT and seeing many different companies. My favourite part was to go and see how to programme a Lego build using an iPad. I really enjoyed looking at the inventions and examining how they work. The funniest thing we saw was the dancing robots. This is because they were dancing to “Beat It” by Michael Jackson. We met an interesting lady who talked to us about the human body. We got lots of free stuff from some people. We had pens, superhero masks, bags, sweets, stress balls and popcorn. Something which really intrigued us were the 3D printers. We watched pots, skulls and the Millennium Falcon printed out.

Running at Snowsfields

At the beginning  of the year we were encouraged to do a 5 minute run around the playground to make sure that we stay fit and healthy. Throughout the terms, it has become more and more challenging. We have had many people saying that they feel healthier and are able to do more laps than they previously did.  As part of our Sports’ leaders responsibilities, we have identified some of the children who found this activity a little bit difficult. We are now supporting them during the running activity and gave them each a running diary so they can write about their achievement and how they are building up their resilience! Our target is for all the children to run a mile a day.

All children are trying to beat their goals and go above and beyond, which makes Snowfields Primary a healthy and hardworking school.

We won an Oscar!

Back in December some of us took part in a road safety project. We were directed by Dan Hobson from @theriotact to produce a film on how to keep safe on the roads.

On the 17/1/17, we were escorted to an award winning ceremony. All of us were competing against other schools but we were very lucky to win an amazing award –an Oscar!-for having the best creative and innovative concept.

EFL Football Tournament

On Wednesday 18th January, we were chosen to participate in the EFL Cup for Kids. The EFL is the English Football League. We were playing 5 a side and we had to take part in 4 matches. There were 2 different group and altogether 12 teams. The first match we drew 1-1, the next match we lost 3-0. The third match we lost again with a 6-0 score. The last match we lost 1-0. If you lost, you got 1 point. If you drew you got 2 points. And if you won a match you got 4 points. Overall, in our group we came third. We would like to thank Ben for training us and James and Kem for taking us out. Next time we are going to win.

Year 6 Assembly

Last Friday Year 6 treated us to a lovely assembly.

We based our assembly on our learning about World War Two. We used the book “Otto” which we read last term and we performed our own version including facts about Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler, and what was happening in Germany at that time. We really enjoyed it as we love the story and we got to be soldiers – everyone had to do something. Thank you to all the parents who were able to come.

Bridges Come 3rd!

Some of the Year 5 and Year 6 children from the federation took part in an athletics tournament earlier this week. Ola has written this report for us.

When I went on the sports trip we did lots of races and relay races. We had to do 4 laps, 8 laps and 2 laps. It was really fun to race with other schools. As a mini game we did high jump over something side to side for 1 minute and see what score you get. I felt happy because we came third place out of 8 schools. I also felt very happy because doing sport is a fun thing to do – it keeps you fit and healthy. If you are not proud about your fitness, you can do sports to feel better.

Tower Bridge Does The X Factor

There have been rumblings in the corridors for a few weeks now. Clandestine conversations between pupils in Keystage 2. What did it all mean? Children have been rehearsing their acts for weeks and we were treated to an amazing array of talents. We had gymnasts, conjuring, rapping, dancing, drumming and singing. Never before have we seen talent like it. After agonising minutes of deliberation, the judges awarded first place to the Year 6 act “The Magic Drums”, second place to the Year 6 act “Two Gymnasts” and 3rd place to the Year 4 act “Star”. Well done to all the pupils who entered and those who were brave enough to perform in front of the whole school. What amazing and talented children we have at the school.

EYFS – Winter Concert

We were treated to Nursery and Reception’s Winter Concert – a lovely show full of winter songs. Some of the children had lines and spoke so clearly and loudly! The singing was wonderful and the children and staff had worked so hard to learn the lines and make their costumes. Thank you to all the parents who came to the Stay and Learn session to help. Thank you to all the parents who came to watch and support your children.

(Hour of Code)

Last week children across the federation took part in The Hour of Code to promote computing and continue to develop the skills taught in lessons. They were supported by our amazing digital leaders. Learning to code is an important part of the curriculum. It helps develop children’s problem solving skills and resilience. Why not have a go at coding yourself: https://code.org/learn
