Headteacher’s update

Hope everyone has had a great week despite the awful weather. It has not stopped us getting out and about in the community and we have had Forest school, swimming and walks in the community to support our learning in the classroom.

I can’t believe that we have nearly finished our first half term. It has been action packed and makes myself and all the staff excited for next half term and the future of our school.

We had our second Showaround for parents who are thinking about where to send their little ones in September. It is always great to meet and chat with families. I understand that it is a huge decision and I remember my wife and I have all the same questions and concerns when our eldest child was starting school. I think that any child in this area is incredibly lucky as it seems all the schools in our area are lovely places to be educated.

It was great to have Reverend Charlotte come into school this week for an assembly. This will be a regular occurrence and we hope to visit the church next half term.

Next week is the last week before half term. The children are going pumpkin picking and we have a Halloween themed disco after school on Wednesday which should be a lot of fun!

Have a lovely weekend.

Communication and Language

At Bowbrook , communication and language is the heart of everything we teach.

Each Monday is singing assembly, we learn a new nursery rhyme with the makaton signs. This enables all children to be able to take part and join in.

This week, we learnt Miss Polly had a dolly.


Office Reminders

Parents have been sent appointments for parents evening. Please contact Sarah in the office if you are unable to attend your allocated slot.

A reminder that afterschool clubs have now finished. Clubs for next half term will be added to Arbor over the next few days. You will be able to book and pay for afterschool clubs on Arbor when they are released next week.

The children are off to the Pumpkin Farm on Tuesday morning. Please remember to bring forest school clothes.



Reverend Charlotte came to visit

Reverend Charlotte came in this week and delivered an assembly about how the animals in her garden squabble and she wishes there was a peacemaker. She talked about a dove being a sin of peace for Christians. She asked if the children could be peacemakers for their friends sometimes.

This week’s certificate winners!

Every week we have a certificate for the children who have not only followed the rules: Be kind, be ready, be safe but who has ‘felt the fear and done it anyway’. Here are this week’s superstars!
