Armistice Day, 11th November 2019

This year to commemorate 100 years since the first Armistice Day, we have learned about the sacrifices made by brave young people, who risked and sometimes gave their lives in war, so that we may live in peace.

Today the whole school attended a short service at the village war memorial, along with members of the police force, governors and parents. Princess and Lennox, helping us to reflect on the significance of the poppy, read remembrance poems. Victor led the exhortation;

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

Our head boy and head girl, Ben and Millie laid the school wreath of remembrance on the memorial and a 1 minute silence was observed as we paid our respects to all soldiers past and present, who have fought and are still fighting.

Thank you to all the parents and visitors who supported our MacMillan Coffee Morning. It was lovely to see so many people enjoying a drink, cake and each other’s company whilst raising an amazing £510.80 for MacMillan Cancer Support.

Last week FOTS ‘Bow Fun’ event was a resounding success. After a trip down the rabbit-hole to get into school, the children enjoyed a Mad Hatters Tea Party, crafts and disco as well as face painting, nails and hair styling. A very happy event!

Thanks to the support of our pupils and families at events organised by FOTS, we have been able to buy a new outdoor shed and lunchtime play equipment, as well as a sun canopy which has been erected on the the field just in time for the summer weather.  FOTS have also paid for a new playground canopy for our recently refurbished EYFS playground.

We have lots of other events planned in the coming months including our summer fete on Sunday 23rd June, 12:00 - 2:00pm.  We hope you will be able to join us on what promises to be a fun packed event.

Brass Instrument invasion !

Last week, the children of Bow Brickhill Primary had the pleasure of a visit from the Milton Keynes Music Service who came in to school to introduce the children to the idea of playing a brass instrument.  A tuba, trumpet, french horn and trombone player made up the ensemble.  They got children up to play the "hosepipe" (a length of hosepipe, the same length as each instrument if its pipes were straightened) and showed them how the various instruments sounded individually and as an ensemble.  The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Information was sent home with the children with details regarding how they could learn to play any of the instruments.

This term we have been very lucky to,  again,  have had Mrs Ritschel in to run a sewing club.  The children have had a fantastic time sewing Easter baskets, bags and toys.  Well done to all the children who took part - you've created some fantastic sewing projects.  And a big thank you to Mrs Ritschel.

This week Oaks class had a change to their curriculum, spending an afternoon learning how to use scooters safely. They learnt about the importance of safety gear, how to balance and use their coordination as well as various aspects of road safety such as learning to share pavements with the public, tackling sharp or blind corners and of course riding near or crossing roads. The children loved the session and even learnt a few tricks!

New Gazebo/Quiet Area

Thanks to the fundraising of FOTS, we now have a fantastic new wooden gazebo in the quiet area on the playground. The children have been very excited, watching its construction and can now enjoy having a place to sit and reflect or where they can chat to friends. We are very grateful to Mr Leeming and Mr Malleson, two of our governors who have given their time to build it.

Congratulations to Marathon Club who completed their final laps of the field and were awarded their medals on Friday. After running three mornings a week since October, runners from Acorns and Oaks have now run the equivalence of a marathon (25 miles) and Cedars and Maples runners have completed an ultra-marathon (50 miles) – quite an achievement! A big thank you goes to Miss Rust who has braved the different weather conditions with the children over the last 5 months.

Comic Relief Day 2019

Well done to everyone who supported Comic Relief day, dressing in red and donating money to this brilliant charity. 
After a special assembly reminding the children about the work of Comic Relief in this country and overseas, the children had great fun working in house groups. During the day we told jokes, drew self-portraits (inspired by the Comic Relief film telling the story of a refugee called Farhad) and made action motion red nose films. Making red nose pizzas and decorating biscuits was also a popular activity - almost as much as eating them!

World Book Day

Witches, wizards and their pets arrived at school for World Book Day, eager to have fun and learn about books incorporating such characters. After a whole school assembly which introduced World Book Day, the children returned to their classrooms to take part in a range of curriculum activities linked to stories including drama, art and literacy. Maths and science was also included with some classes collecting and recording data about book preferences and making battery power wands. Our day finished with secret surprise readers visiting each class to share stories on our magical theme.
