This year’s CBPPS Summer Art Exhibition has been a colourful and inspiring event, enjoyed by all. The vibrant and creative art pieces included watercolour paintings, batiks, sculptures, masks, hats, mosaics and exciting senses books.
Form 6 enjoyed an informative talk given by representatives of London Underground before visiting Turnham Green Station where they learnt many useful safety tips. They are now well equipped to travel independently next year.
On Friday 16 June the hall was transformed into a courtroom for Form 6’s assembly. The girls enacted a trial in which the 12 year old defendant was charged with robbery and the audience were all part of the jury. Prosecution and defence barristers, with the help of their witnesses, put forward strong arguments while the judge, clerk and court usher ensured the smooth running of the trial.
Reception was very pleased to be taken on a nature walk with Form 6. The children were shown how to identify the local trees by looking at the shape of the leaves, the colour of the fruit and feel of the bark. Thank you Form 6.
Form 5 also went on a nature walk and enjoyed looking at the different species of trees, plants and insects.
Reception was very excited to participate in a workshop led by local artist and parent at CBPPS, Jodie Glen-Martin. Ms Glen-Martin showed the children some of her art work and talked about what it is like to be an artist. The children were then able to create their own minibeast creation on canvas using Jodie’s prints as a base for their work. When they had completed their painting, gold leaf was carefully applied to give that extra sparkle to the canvas. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and are very proud of their creations.
Helena Coggan, former pupil of CBPPS, visited the school to talk to years 5 and 6 about her books The Catalyst and The Reaction.
The Catalyst was published when Helena was just 15 years old.
Reception children had a lovely day out at Odds Farm Park on Friday 12 May. They enjoyed feeding the goats, stroking the rabbits and seeing lots of baby animals. They had fun on the tractor ride and playing in the adventure playground.
