garageband-iOSWe are a school that is known for our creativity and music. As such, we are always looking for new ways to express that creativity and perform our music. Miss George’s class has been working with Garage Band, an iPad app, over the last few weeks to both compose and perform new electronic-infused tracks.

You can hear some of the results below:

postheadericon Connect It

It was a bright sunny Friday morning without clouds or rain. All 480 children assembled in the playground to perform “Connect It”, a dance based on one of the BBC Ten Pieces, this followed weeks of rehearsal and careful choreography from Emma Jane Bradley.

The dance was a real success and it was amazing to see the synergy of all 16 classes performing together.


Well done to all of the children and Mrs Bradley for all of the hard work.

Wear a Hat Day - Cover Picture

Staff and teachers looked fantastic today. It was a colourful and eclectic display of homemade creations and wacky shop bought head gear. The donations and sales of merchandise have helped us raise a good deal of cash for Brain Tumour Research, a charity that is very dear to the school.

Look out for a report by one of our pupils in an up and coming newsletter.

Update

The school raised over £700 pounds on the day – this is fantastic!

This morning we will witness the historic solar eclipse. The teachers will be talking to the children about this event and we will use resources such as the video below to talk about what it is and the safety aspects associated with the event.

Children should never look directly at the eclipse.

The School Council recently entered a flag designing competition representing Redbridge. The competition involved one school in each constituency
in the UK and we are one of them!  Different schools are representing different areas.

The prize was for the School Council to get to visit Parliament and also to get the flag on Magna Carta Foundation of Liberty Commemorative Event. The event will be managed by the National Trust and Surrey Council. This event is also celebrating the 800-year anniversary of the Magna Carta Foundation of Liberty.

Our flag has a bold red bridge in the middle, with the River Roding running under the bridge. It also has the Churchfields leaf, which is an oak leaf, above the red bridge.

postheadericon Meeting a Dinosaur

On a wet Thursday morning we headed off to meet a trex_natural_history_museumdinosaur! We hopped on the tube for an hour or so.
When we arrived it was a windy day, it was as if a leaf blower was in our faces! We travelled down a long
tunnel to the ground entrance of the Natural History Museum! When we entered we were greeted by the
huge Stegosaurus skeleton that was waiting for us. We then went over to the insect department where we
were given a warm welcome from a huge animatronic scorpion and a huge colony of fire ants. After the insect exhibits we ran, or should I say flew, over to the birds exhibition and looked at some huge stuffed birds, including an ostrich and two adorable dodo birds!

Finally, we went to a very special workshop where we analysed fossils and insects in glass boxes and it was an incredible amount of fun.Then we looked through a microscope! It was a memorable day, meeting a dinosaur.
