Dear Parents/Carers,

We have had a fantastic start to life at Bowbrook. The children, parents and staff have been tremendous and there are so many exciting times ahead. We have had a few teething problems from payment systems to leaking toilets but this is to be expected and has had no impact on the provision for the children.

We are priding ourselves on being a school of opportunity and want our children to have a wealth of experiences that are exciting, fun and also takes them out of their comfort zone. We have put a calendar out of some of the activities we have planned and there will be many more to come.

Next Friday (22nd September) we are welcoming parents to come into the classrooms after pick up and have a wander around the classrooms and whole school at your leisure.

Please get in touch if there are any issues or feedback. Have a great weekend.

Mr Aiston

Trip to Inside Out

We had a wonderful trip to Inside Out Forest School with Franky this Friday afternoon. We borrowed a mini bus from our friends at Priory Secondary school and had so much fun in the mud.

Learning about Jewish New Year

Mia spoke to the class about Jewish New Year and how her family will be celebrating it.

She brought in sweet treats of apple and honey for her friends to share in class.

Music with Domenica

Today we had our first music session with our Music Teacher Domenica. The children focused on nursery rhymes and using egg shakers. Everyone loved it!

Meet Doug

You will get used to seeing Doug around as he helps us with digital media and branding.  He produced our First Day at School video.

We are really lucky to have him, he’s fantastic at capturing smiling faces and also designed our school logo and website.

Our logo shows the meadows and brook surrounding our school and the butterfly symbolises our children spreading their wings in the world around them.

Some fun facts about Doug:  he can build anything! He designs and makes theatre props, restores old cars and has a love for retro biscuits!
