On Friday 14th January, Year 5 performed a fantastic class assembly for the whole school. They learnt songs, dances and fables, entertaining everyone with their animated performance as they told facts and stories about ancient Greece. Well done to Year 5 for such a brilliant performance.
This January at Chiswick & Bedford Park our Artist of the Month is Clarice Cliff.
Born in Stoke-on-Trent on 20th January 1899, Cliff left school at the age of 13 to work in the pottery industry. Starting as a gilder, she moved on to freehand painting, enamelling and outlining. Her work soon caught her bosses attention, and he helped her apply to study at the Royal College of Arts in Paris.
In 1927 she opened her own studio, and developed a new pottery design called Bizarre which was made of colourful shapes. By 1929, she had roughly 70 people working with her.
Our Value of the Month for January at Chiswick & Bedford Park is teamwork.
Working as a team means that we can benefit from each others help, knowledge and experience to accomplish our goals together.
“I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things.” – Mother Theresa
“Teamwork. Alone we can do so little. Together we can do so much.” – Helen Keller
You can see the poster for this month’s value on our Value of the Month page.

Wow, what a treat for the children at CBPPS! On Monday 13th December, the ultimate festive visitor popped in to visit the pupils – Father Christmas! The children were delighted to meet him, and be able to tell him about their Christmas activities and ask questions about the reindeer.
They were all very pleased with their gold coins that he had brought all the way from the North Pole – thank you Father Christmas!
On Thursday 9th December, Year 4 designed and made these fantastic Anglo-Saxon inspired masks. Their jewelled creations are based on real masks from the era, and were made in art this week.
On Wednesday 8th December, Reception took to the stage to perform their first Christmas Nativity show at Chiswick & Bedford Park.
After practising their songs and dances for weeks, the children were very excited and they all remembered their lines brilliantly.
A big thank you to all our Reception parents for bringing in their excellent costumes and helping them learn their lines at home.
On Wednesday 8th December, Year 1 performed their first school nativity, called ‘Humph the Camel’, in front of an audience. Well done to all the children for remembering all the songs, dances and lines they had – they all performed brilliantly.
On Thursday 9th December, pupils and staff celebrated the upcoming holiday by joining in with Christmas Jumper Day 2021.
We saw glittery jumpers, woolly jumpers and even a few jumpers with flashing lights on them!
To top off the festivities the whole school was treated to Christmas dinner by our school caterers, Holroyd Howe.
On Friday 3rd December the whole school gathered in assembly to hear the results of the Bebras Challenge 2021, which every class from Year 2 to Year 6 took part.
All pupils who took part were awarded a certificate of participation, whilst others reached merit and distinction in the challenge.
