During Spanish Buzz Day, pupils in Year 5 and 6 programmed some very special translation games.
We learnt some new Spanish vocabulary and even challenged ourselves to write Spanish sentences and conversations.
Have a look at some of our games below. Which Spanish words do you know? Which words are new to you?
Today, a small group of avid readers from TBP made the short trip to Canary Wharf to attend the Tower Hamlets Book Awards.
We all had a great time and some of us even met the author Jo Cotterill!
She ended up winning the award so we decided that we are all really good friends with a major celeb!
Take a look at some of the pictures from our day below.

This Thursday the 29th of September it was National Poetry Day and so at Thomas Buxton, we celebrated like the best of them!
The theme this year was ‘Freedom’ and each class competed within their phase to deliver the best poem in a whole school assembly.
Thursday’s assembly kicked off with a bang as Year 1 recited some beautiful poetry, really setting the bar high for everyone to follow. Luckily, Year 2 and Year 3 were able to keep up the high standards until…a cliffhanger! We had ran out of time!
The next day, all was resumed and Years 4, 5 and 6 demonstrated a fantastic mastery of the spoken word!
After much deliberation, the judges decided on winners for each phase, who were:
Key Stage One: Thailand class
Lower Key Stage Two: Cuba class
Upper Key Stage Two: Kenya class
These classes will all receive special book tokens and certificates to exchange for prizes next week.
However, as all classes put such a magnificent effort in, the judges decided each class will receive a special book token.
Check out the online versions of the poems below!
Well done TBP!
At TBP this year, we have really been focusing on our reading!
Thanks to a great offer from the National Literacy Trust, we have been able to offer children a choice of free books for them to take home and keep!
As part of this offer, we have organised two in-school events to celebrate the children’s reading.
Firstly, children from years 4, 5 and 6 attended a reading sleepover, where they enjoyed activities such as: a campfire with Mrs F, choosing books with Mr Downs and Mrs Milne, creating book-related cupcakes with Miss Maynard and Miss Turnbull and quizzing a quiz with Miss Dwyer and Miss John!
The children also enjoyed a Drop Everything And Read session with all of KS2, where older pupils swapped classes with younger pupils and read with them. The children all loved it and the teachers said it was great fun!
