Value of the Month – Cheerfulness

By All School News

This month our Value of the Month at Chiswick & Bedford Park is cheerfulness. Form 4 have worked together to create a fun-filled poster full of reasons to be cheerful that they have put up around the school. Their reasons include puppies, hugs, snowball fights, playing in the park, dancing and jumping – all of which sound like great reasons to be cheerful!

Science this week at CBPPS!

By All School News

We’ve had a very busy week in science at CBPPS!

Form 2 have started planting seeds, and are excited to see how they grow in the next few weeks. In Form 3 pupils have been learning all about springtime, making flowers and creating detailed observational drawings of the different parts of plants, whilst Form 4 have had lots of fun sailing boats and dropping spinners to learn more about forces including gravity and upthrust. Form 5 have had a lovely week discovering all about crystals as part of their changing materials topic and Form 6 have been learning about fungus – and are now experimenting with different conditions for bread to see which grows mold the quickest.

We look forward to seeing the results of all their experiments and investigations in the coming weeks!

Artist of the Month – April 2021

By All School News

This month at Chiswick & Bedford Park we are learning about Victor Vasarely (1906 -1997). Born in Hungary in 1906, Vasarely is widely accepted as one of the grandfathers of the Op (optical) Art movement. Specialising in applied graphic art and typographical design at art college, over the next three decades Vasarely developed a distinctive geometric and abstract style. One of his most famous pieces is Zebra. Created in 1950, the piece creates the illusion of a 3D zebra using black and white lines. His work has been displayed in some of the most famous galleries in the world including the Tate in central London.

On Thursday 12th March, Form 4 enjoyed visiting the Museum of Brands in Notting Hill, London. As part of their science week studies, the class went to look at how product packaging has changed throughout the 20th & 21st Century and issues of package sustainability. After visiting the museum, the class then worked in groups to design these brilliant posters to illustrate sustainability.

Form 3 Hockey Fixture

By All School News

On Tuesday 10th March, Form 3 had a fantastic afternoon taking part in their first hockey fixtures against Orchard House School.

The class were divided into two teams (Blues and Purples) to play against Orchard House. Despite only having a couple of hockey lessons this year, you certainly couldn’t tell they were playing their first matches , winning 2 and drawing 3 of their 6 games played.

The Blues and Purples both demonstrated fantastic team work in attacking and defending, with all of them being assertive in their play and effectively contributing to their teams’ performances.

The girls will continue to work on their spacing out and structure across the pitch during lessons, which will allow them to attack with greater speed through passing over longer distances using the width and height on the pitch.

Thank you to all of the parents who came and supported the Form 3 in their matches, we hope you enjoyed it as much as they did!
