Paddington!

Some of our children were lucky to be invited to the official launch of the new film: Paddington 2!

 

They went to meet Paddington at MoreLondon, who happened to bring another star of the film, Hugh Bonneville as well as the Mayor, Sadiq Khan. The children behaved beautifully, even though Paddington was being a little bit naughty.

Here is a link to the event. The children had an amazing time!

LPESSN – Girls in Sport Week

The LPESSN (London PE and Sport School Network) held some events to celebrate Women in Sport. Girls from the federation took part in American Football and Boxing.

On Monday some of us went to learn how to play American football. First we learnt what the people were called and we played. I was partnered up with someone from another school. It was tricky at first. I think we should play more of it in the school and I am sure other children in the school will enjoy it, but during it we needed to use tags as barging at each other is not allowed. We learnt how to kick the ball over the cross bar. It was the best day and we were given badges.

We went to Bacon’s college to play   American Football. We were in two teams. The first team was attacking and the other team had to defend. We had so much fun it was the best day. We also did some warm ups and other games. We had tags around our waists—the other team had to get them.

At the end of playing football the lady gave us badges.

Faith, Year 5

Churchill’s War Room

On Monday 18th September, we went to the Churchill War Rooms. Once inside, we were shown a video from World War 2. We were handed out some devices that informed us about the different rooms. Interestingly, the people that worked there left the rooms in the same state as when they first went in.  We visited the meeting rooms, the dormitories and even saw Winston Churchill’s room!

When we arrived at the museum, we were given a grid each which needed to be filled in with information on Winston Churchill’s life. After watching a documentary on the interactive board which helped us learn more about the war and Churchill’s history, we visited different sections that covered Winston Churchill’s life; starting from his childhood and finishing off on the day he died. We learnt lots about him. For example, we did not know that he was a fine artist and that he was Queen Elizabeth’s II first prime minister. We have loved learning about his fascinating life and cannot wait to write our biographies on such an important figure.  Lona and Seryn.

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

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.’

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.
