Headteacher’s update

This has been a wonderful week at Bowbrook. One of the specific areas in the Early Years curriculum is Understanding the World. Within Understanding the World, the children need to develop their understanding of society and the roles people play within it. We are so lucky at Bowbrook to have parents who contribute so much to society so this week we have had many visitors in school talking about the jobs that they do. Please look at our website and social media for what the children have been learning.

Currently we are recruiting for more staff to join our growing team. We are excited by this and have met many interested candidates. When we have appointed, we will let you know and we look forward to you welcoming them into our school community.

Thank you for your continued support as a community. We are really proud with the school we are creating and are excited about the future. As always, if there are any issues or any improvements you feel we could make then please let me know.

Have a great weekend and wrap up warm.

Heroes in the community

We’ve had a super week with visits from Search & Rescue, the school nurses and a firefighter! We learnt how to keep ourselves safe and what to do if we find ourselves in danger.  What a brilliant start to our Heroes in the Community week!


Cafe visit!

Today we were so excited to visit Cafe Connect at the Radbrook Shopping Precinct. Dave was there to meet us and welcomed us in. We were treated to a milkshake and Swiss roll! What a treat!  What a lovely community gesture to give us this for free! Thank you so much, we had a great time and are looking forward to role playing cafes back at School.


Visit from Doctor Hamza

Doctor Hamza came to visit us today as part of helping us understand the roles people have in society. The children loved it and were given their own doctor’s kit to take home!  Thank you


Coastguard Tamsyn

Part of our Dreams come true week has given us visits from lots of inspirational people and parents. Today we have been so lucky to welcome Captain Tamsyn Hogan, Hunter’s mummy, in to talk to us about her job as a helicopter pilot and coastguard and how she helps people.  We then designed paper helicopters and carried out some investigations.

Yoga Sessions

Core strength, mindfulness and listening skills are all part of our weekly yoga sessions. Thanks to Relax Kids, we live our yoga time!


One of the heroes in our community is Firefighter Alan. The children loved learning all about the job he does. They asked some fantastic questions and have been using the vocabulary in their role play throughout the week.

We are loving Heroes in the community week.

Local nurses visit

We were lucky enough to have a visit from some of our nursing friends who taught the children all about how to keep their teeth healthy.
