    Any Way Poem by Bridge Learning Campus

    Inspired by Messages From The Moon, Bridge Learning Campus Gladiators have written an 'Any Way Poem' on the topic of animals. Each of the Gladiators has written a verse and they become one poem. The idea is that the reader begins at the 'Start' and can read a route any way around the poem until they reach the 'finish', reading as much or as little as they like and changing the poem every time.

  • All About Elephants

    The children in Year 2 became fascinated with.the facts about elephants at the end of the story. They used the Internet and books to find information for fact files and created leaflets that an elephant reserve might use for visitors.

    Today the Year 2 children at Bridge Learning Campus had a wonderful time creating a group play script of the scene when Uncle Jeff arrives back with Erica and Miss Pritchett. Some of the children acted out the scene, some drew pictures of the adventures in the story and some completed group play scripts. The best ones were typed up for submission.We all had such a lot of fun!

  • Grey Island Red Boat Character Differences

    Our Year 2 Gladiators did a fantastic job of highlighting some of the language used by the author to show the difference between the characters of the King and Princess Opal.

    Excellent work Filton Avenue. This really shows the difference in their characters. I wonder why the king is so angry all the time...
  • Princess Opal meets Wendell

    We looked at the silhouette picture and created our own versions.

    This is a very expressive photograph. We can tell exactly what the characters are feeling. Well done everyone.
  • Grey Island Red Boat Captions

    We looked at the silhouette illustrations and imagined what the fisherman, Wendell and Princess Wendell might be thinking…. A great book – it’s really fired our imaginations!! We had a real debate as to whether the king would be liked or continue to be feared and disliked after Wendell had changed him into bright colours.

    Hello Oasis Connaught Gladiators! Thank you for sharing your super work. Did you think the king in Moon Dragons and in Grey Island, Red Boat were similar to each other?
  • Hot seating Alina!

    Year 2 Reading Gladiators were fascinated by the character of Alina. Here, the children were asking Alina some interesting and thought-provoking questions.

    You look as though you are getting into character. I wonder if you think Alina did the right thing?
