On Tuesday May 12th, we welcomed the Worshipful Company of Musicians into school to take part in a cello workshop with our Year 4 pupils. It was a great success with pupils benefiting hugely from watching this orchestral instrument being played to a professional standard by fantastic young musician Sergio.
Our Year 4 pupils enthusiastically took part, learning about pitch, tone and dynamics as well as discussing different classical composers. They listened well to Sergio playing a Bach suite and identified various pieces of music as being either in a major or a minor key.
It was a great experience and one we will be continuing for all pupils in the school in the future.
School will be closed for most pupils on Thursday 11th June 2015 as we are being used as a polling station for the Tower Hamlets Mayoral Elections.
Targeted Year 2 and Year 6 students will be expected to attend school. A separate letter will be sent out to those students who need to attend.
On the same day, Reception Pupils are going on an Educational Visit to the Natural History Museum. Reception class teachers will send more information to parents about this in due course.
Those attending school or going on the Museum trip will be provided with a packed lunch if they are entitled to a free school meal. All other pupils will need to bring their own packed lunch.
Year 5 pupils this week are taking part in a brilliant opportunity to learn about road safety when cycling on the road.

They are all really enjoying the experience ad now feel more confident about using a bike on the road.
