Film Club – 10th May All Ks2 pupils welcome!


The Princes’ Quest

Azur and Asmar both go on a quest to find the Djin Fairy…

Thank you so much to Shaimaa and Mummy for letting us share this
beautiful animation film from Michel Ocelot, who directed Kirikou.
It has realistic drawings of flora and fauna in gorgeous colours.
And thank you to Mosshin for translating some of the Arabic dialogue
for us and explaining lots about North African culture.

We have seen the first half of the film and will watch the second half
on Thursday 10th May.
Dean said, “We’ve left it on a cliffhanger! We’ll have to come back
next week.”

Other FILMCLUB news:We had a visit from Mary from FILMCLUB HQ.She was very impressed with the quality of our responses to the film.
Mary also gave us new FILMCLUB wristbands. We have prizes for everyone who can find out which film the wristband quotes come from.

Tags, tries and triumphs!

Congratulations to both Tag-Rugby Teams who made it to the final rounds of the Southwark Tournament which was brilliantly run by Bacons Sports Partnership and Southwark Tigers RFC.


Following muddy slides, dashing runs, nimble dodges and brilliant tries, Charles Dickens B secured 5th place in the Borough after a play off against Surrey Square B. Charles Dickens A dominated in the quarter finals, then the semis and faced Surrey Square A in a nail biting finals. The match was dubbed the “best rugby of the season” and the “closest match” and ended 11-10 to Surrey Square, placing Charles Dickens in the Silver Medal position. Medals were distributed and the cup presented by representatives from Morgan Stanley Investment Bank.

Well done and thank you to the children, their coaches (Mrs Taylor and Mr MacKinnon) and to all the parents who came and supported and made it a season to remember!
