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.’

‘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.

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

Year 3: Reading Cafe

Both Year 3 classes across the federation recently hosted their reading cafes to parents. Thank you to all the parents who were able to attend. The children have enjoyed sharing stories and their new books with you.

“I like that Mum sits quietly for longer to listen to me read without my sister chatting at the book.

It’s fun to read with mum. I like reading with mum and my friends.”

“My child reads really well with confident and can retell the story.”

“My child is relaxed, confident and very keen to read – he read the whole book ‘Dino Danger'”

snowsfields General Elections 2017

We have run our own general elections today to decide who the next prime minister will be. We watched the different political party 60 second guides and discussed which party would look after us the best.  In class, we talked about democracy and how important it is to cast a vote. When it was time to vote, the school councillors called our names and gave us a ballot paper. We then went inside a polling booth and chose our party.  The votes were counted and the Labour party won by a landslide! Matan and Abigail Year 4
