Class News 23.06.2023

This week Group 3 and 4 had their first experience of Forest School, although a little wetter than the previous groups the children quickly learned how to create a shelter to survive in the great outdoors. All children demonstrated great teamwork – keep it up, we will ask for sunshine next week! 

We have researched the Rights of a Child using the UNICEF child-friendly convention icons and definitions. We demonstrated our understanding using freeze-frames before identifying the most important ones to be aware of in school. The children have begun creating posters to inform everyone in school about their Rights and what they mean to them at Newham Bridge Primary School. 

We read Nelson Mandela – Long Walk to Freedom to further our understanding of his impact on Human Rights throughout his life and how his stand had an impact on others standing up for their Rights. The children used their understanding to write a diary entry reflecting on the day he was finally freed – their emotional and factual language was amazing! 

Finally, a huge part of our week has focussed on photography. This week the children have taken part in Sky Arts Week and it has been amazing to explore photography in the outdoors and see your child’s personality and talents on camera. We have experimented with perspective, lighting, frames, props, expression and much more! The children have loved each challenge they have been set and have worked well with their partners to produce a triptych showcasing their identity in their own way.

All children should now have brought home their slips to select which performance tickets they would like and their clothing requirements for the show. If you have any questions or problems regarding the outfits for their role please get in contact.

Archie for fantastic contributions to Art Week and inspiring the creativity in others.

Tyler for improved confidence in Shakespeare Rocks rehearsals 🙂

Happy 11th Birthday to Deacon, we hope you have enjoyed your special day 🙂
