One World Competition

To celebrate One World Week (24-28 October) all children from Nightingale entered a competition organised by Redbridge. They were asked to design a poster to raise awareness about how to care for the environment. Some children chose to design a poster promoting recycling; others chose to focus their poster on encouraging children to walk to school. The judges commented that all entries were outstanding and imaginative and it was a hard decision to choose the winners. There were four winners from Nightingale:
Molly in 5SM, (overall winner)
Sienha in 2KB, Maria Poli in 6NO and Edith Sizer in 6NO
Winners will receive a kit for the school consisting of eco-friendly goodies.
There were also several runners-up who will receive a pencil made from recycled newspaper.
There will be a special assembly in the coming week where all winners and runners up will receive their certificates and prizes.
Well done to all the children who took part.
Thank you to Miss Sanders for organising the competition.

Poetry in Motion Competition

Congratualtions to all the children who took part in the Poetry In Motion Competition which was run by Redbridge. The children wrote about their journey to school, using a range of exciting descriptions.
The winning entries have been published in the Redbridge poetry book.
We are proud to announce the winners as: Alex Yan, Anngeley Candasamy, Bethany Morgan, Jake Ward Monsen, Jakub Moudry and Hiya Dar.

Stegosaurus Science in Year 4

Year 4 were lucky enough to take part in a video conference with the Natural History Museum, to talk live with a Palaeontologist. We learnt about the Stegosaurus and thought about what its plates could have been used for. We also asked some questions.

Check back later in the week for some of the children's views about the event.
