Headteacher update

It has been another great at Bowbrook. The highlight has to be the Grandparent’s Tea Party which was incredibly well attended and loads of fun.
I know from my own experience how important extended families are for supporting childcare and we want to recognise this. Our visitors were blown away by the facilities we have on offer and spoke to the children about the differences in school to when they they were younger.

We are continuing to attend Inside Out for forest school sessions. We are borrowing the mini bus from our good friends at the Priory to take the children there. We are exploring the idea of purchasing our own mini bus for next academic year. We are already planning how we can make Summer term, and next year, bigger and better with even more opportunities.

I can’t believe how fast the term is going. Next week is the final week and we have planned for next Friday to have a bingo night in school where we want members of our community to come along too. It will hopefully be fun for everyone!

Any ideas or feedback you wish to share then do not hesitate to get in touch.

Grandparents Afternoon Tea

We all spent a lovely afternoon with our Bowbrook Grandparents and Great- Grandparents.  The children baked delicious cakes ready for the afternoon tea and afterwards gave personal tours around the school.  They did such a great job! The children are learning about the past and present and comparing their lives now to those their grandparents lived when they were small. It was great to hear the discussions taking place and some even brought old photographs in to share.  We are so glad we could give this opportunity of quality time to our extended families.  Thank you to all our families for coming along.

Mini Bowbrook

Our very own mini Bowbrook where the children are in charge! Through imaginative play children learn critical thinking skills, build expressive and receptive language, increase social skills and learn how to manage their emotions.

Fun in the mud at Inside Out!

This afternoon we had a wonderfully muddy time at Inside Out. Mud soup, mud pie and mud cakes were all on the menu. We also made bird feeders for the little ones to take home. We loved being outdoors!

 

Our Outdoor Area

We were hoping that work would have begun on our outdoor area but unfortunately the weather and floods have prevented this from happening.

Well, our children got sick of waiting so we decided to make a start ourselves.

Support for our families

Fantastic opportunity to train as a Secondary School teacher
