Primary Virtual Tour
This term, Primary site have virtually opened our doors to parents and public with a new video tour of our site.
Watch the video for a guided walk around Primary and let us tell you about what makes our special school, extra special.
This term, Vicky, Mica & Fred have been working with Open Orchestra to set up an Orchestra at the school that is accessible for all of our students. We’re currently working individually with 9 young people, learning how to play a wide variety of instruments and explore our musical identities.
We aim to explore with music, and eventually start working in bigger groups and by the middle of next term to form a full orchestra. We have found the sessions to offer benefits for the children, including improved academic, social and emotional outcomes. We are super excited about having our very own Open Orchestra here at The Bridge Primary.
Fantastic Primary Content
At The Bridge Primary, our dedicated staff team really wanted to reach out to our pupils and families while the school was closed. We tried to find a way for pupils to see a familiar face and support our families with their children’s learning at home. We also wanted to show parents some fun ideas for activities they could do with their children, so the staff at Primary turned to their cameras and developed a bank of resources on our very own YouTube channel. We know that our children love watching their favourite songs, nursery rhymes and other videos on YouTube so we decided that it would be an easy platform for them to access.
On the channel, you can watch how teachers tell engaging sensory stories, teach Makaton signs, arts and craft, give cooking ideas and much more. If you have not seen the channel yet, the video titled ‘A Message from The Bridge Primary staff’ is a great place to start. You can see over 50 members of staff join together from their homes to let the pupils know how much they were missed. We hope watching the videos puts a smile on your children’s faces during this time… and remember to like and subscribe!
