World Book Day Celebrations!

By All School News

On Thursday 5th March, the pupils and teachers at Chiswick & Bedford Park joined in with a variety of activities in celebration of World Book Day. This year the whole school took part in a read-a-thon, where every class teacher visited each form to read them an extract from a beloved children’s story. Form 2 then had a wonderful time designing bookmarks and decorating Golden Tickets from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!

Computing Club Create GIFs!

By All School News

This half term Form 4 have been creating simple animations in their computing lessons. Taking part in computing club, one of the class decided to take it a step further and use their newly acquired computing skills to produce a superb animation. She spent over 35 minutes crafting her animation and thinking about what she wanted to achieve.  The final result is stunning.

This single animation took 105 photos (also called frames) to complete.

Forms 5 & 6 ‘Magistrates in the Community’ Workshop

By All School News

On Tuesday 3rd March, Forms 5 and 6 were lucky to be visited by ‘Magistrates in the Community’.  Two Magistrates ran a workshop where each form took part in a discussion around the role of the magistracy, the rules we all live by and the age of criminal responsibility, before taking part in a “mock trial.”  Each student took a different role within a magistrates’ court – being either the magistrates, the legal advisor, the court usher, the defence or prosecution teams, a witness or, of course, the defendants.  The students were absolutely superb in their deliberations of the evidence presented to them in the trial and made considered decisions regarding the innocence (or not) of the defendants in each case.

Thank you to ‘Magistrates in the Community’ for visiting CBPPS.

Value of the Month – Honesty

By All School News

Honesty is our value of the month for March.

Honesty is when you speak the truth and act truthfully. Honesty means more than not lying; an honest person doesn’t do things that are morally wrong.

“Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.” ― Spencer Johnson

“No legacy is so rich as honesty.” ― William Shakespeare, All’s Well That Ends Well

“We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.” ― Michelle Obama

Delightful Ducklings in Nursery

By All School News

What an extremely exciting week it has been in the Nursery. The children and staff eagerly awaited the arrival of the duck eggs, and felt very lucky to be able to watch the first egg hatch as soon as they arrived! Later on in the day the children looked closely for any cracks, and the other eggs had all hatched by the following morning. All the children have been learning how to care for the ducklings and look forward to teaching them to swim next week!
