George V Bridge

To celebrate the centenary of the King George V Bridge (Keadby Bridge) we invited members of the community to join us in our special celebration. 

Our fabulous Speech and Drama children performed their choral poem, The Whoppee Cushion, followed by Keadby Bridge, written by Miss Jeanie.

Keane read out an extract from a diary he had written, where he imagined he was someone constructing the bridge. Millie shared a newspaper report she had written, set in 1916. Harry performed his poem about the bridge.

Our talented dancers performed their new dance, Take a Picture, from the musical Half a Sixpence.

Councillor Briggs 'cut the ribbon' on Emily's model and 'opened' the bridge. This is because the bridge was never officially opened, due to WW1.

Finally everyone enjoyed a picnic in the sunshine. It was lovely to see the whole community getting together to share in the celebration.

This year is the centenary of Keadby Bridge. Built between 1912 and 1916, the King George V bridge was designed by James Ball and C R Rowlinson.

To celebrate this special occasion, we designed and made models of the bridge for homework. The Parish Council judged the wonderful models. The winners are:

F2 Crystal Proctor

Y1 Harry Baisley

Y2 Olivia Shipley

Y3 Emily Sheffield

Y4 Harvey Donnison

Y5 Tiarni Hoyle

Y6 Bailey Shearman

Below are some of our fabulous models.
