On Monday night our Year 4’s and school choir entertained parents and staff by singing an array of christmas carols and hymns. Listen and enjoy a few songs from the event.
This morning our school choir took part in The Xmas Factor at Middlesbrough Town Hall, competing against 14 other schools in the area. The student’s performed the song “Born in the Night” and received some excellent feedback from the 3 judges.
The children really enjoyed the experience. We should find out how well we did in the coming week.
Merry Christmas everyone!
I hope you’re all having a great time whatever you’re doing! Maybe you’re accessing our web site on a new device you’ve got for Christmas? Don’t forget, Bridgebook is available all the way through the Christmas holidays so keep coming back to let us know what you’re up to and to find out how everyone else is doing.
One more time… Happy Christmas from everyone at Newham Bridge!
2EJ performed ‘The Night Before Christmas’ poem within their Literacy lesson. We recorded this using GarageBand and have uploaded it here as a special christmas treat! Enjoy!
You may remember a few weeks ago we asked you take part in a survey on behalf of the children in Year 6. As part of an ICT project the children devised this survey featuring questions, the answers to which would help us make a great Christmas album! We took the results, enter the data into spreadsheets and used them to inform decisions about the album such as number of tracks to include, how many CD’s we could sell and the price at which to sell them.
Following all of that number crunching… Newham Bridge Primary School are proud to announce the first ever release of a Christmas album performed entirely by the children of Newham Bridge. The Newham Bridge Christmas Album 2013.
The album features 12 tracks all performed by the children of Newham Bridge school. Several tracks are performed exclusively by the Newham Bridge Choir and some tracks even include the whole school. There’s even one or two tracks on the album sung by the children of Year 6.
The album is available now from the Office and costs just £3. That’s just £0.25 per track. That’s cheaper than iTunes!
This album is a limited release and you’ve only got three days left to buy it. When they’re gone they’re gone!
So what are you waiting for? Take your £3 to the Office and ask Mrs Rathbone very politely for your copy of The Newham Bridge Christmas Album 2013.
Can you hear your voice on any of the tracks?

As part of an ICT project, the children in Year 6 are producing a Christmas album. Part of the project is to collect survey responses to make sure that the CD is as appealing as possible to everyone.
Please take the time to complete this survey, your responses will directly affect the way the CD turns out.
