    On Wednesday June 29th Year 5 had a very different day.

    The Year 5 girls decided to have an all day talent show, they practised

    all morning and performed in the afternoon. There were all different

    kinds of acts like singing, dancing and playing musical instruments

    such as the clarinet and the trumpet. They made up names for their

    groups such as Jasmine Flowers, Glitter Girls, Rolling Cherries and

    the Biebets! Some of the songs performed were Fame, Hair spray,

    Rolling in the Deep, and Tik Tok by Keisha. They even had an

    interval with refreshments of popcorn and drinks. All the acts were

    videoed and will be made into a film for all of Year 5 to share. Many

    thanks to Mrs Stewart and Miss Mason for doing their best to provide

    some good costumes for the girls. (written by Jade Lee 5S)

    The boys were privileged to experience an amazing trip to Charlton

    football ground for the Boys Will Be project. They had a speechfrom Gary Wilson and the highlight for many was an extraordinary

    tour of the stadium. They also created animated movies using video

    cameras and play dough which were a great success. The Tree of

    Knowledge was mainly to encourage boys to work as a team to

    achieve their goal. Garys goal for all of us was to achieve the full

    potential for all our boys. He believed that BOYS ARE BRILLIANT.

    (written by George Hills 5M)

    This project will end with two more special days for Year 3 this week.

    Brampton Primary is a restorative school where the initial response to conflict is to

    find a solution where things are put right, the victims needs are met whilst also

    meeting the needs of the wrong doer and meet all the schools responsibilities.

    ChoirOn Saturday 25th July, Brampton took part in the Bird Collect Midsummer Medley at the Fairfield Halls

    in Croydon. This was our third year of attendance at the concert, and we took 51 children, from theChoir, String Starz and representatives from our Year 4 African Drumming lessons. The day started bright

    and early with rehearsals at 10 o'clock, and the concert got into full swing at 2pm. The Choir sang a va-riety of pieces including the magnificent "The Singing Game" with delegates from other Bexley Primary

    School Choirs; String Starz played in the Bexley Massed Orchestra and the Year 4 African Drum-mers performed in the spectacular debut performance of "Rice Harvest" as part of the Wider Opportuni-

    ties Scheme. A lot of time and effort was put into the event by all children, and special thanks go to MissHope, Mrs. Perks and Mrs. Stewart for all their hard work and dedication to the Choir and String Starz.Miss Hope would also like to extend her thanks to Miss Carter and Miss Cross who also accompanied thechildren to the event. Once again, our children performed brilliantly, and were complimented on their tal-ents and impecable behaviour. It is always a pleasure taking our children to extra-curricular events.Many thanks to the parents and families for supporting this event - we look forward to seeing you at the

    Summer Fete on Friday at 3.30pm for those children in the Choir who want to perform again.
