We will remember them

This year marks 100 years since the end of World War I.  To commemorate this event, pupils at Bow Brickhill have been creating displays relating to the Poppy, which is used as the symbol for Remembrance Day.  

The front of the school was turned into a memorial garden, with crosses (created by Oaks) on which they wrote the names of all the men who appear on the war memorial in Bow Brickhill.  Surrounding these crosses, we planted 'poppies' made by all the children in school and displayed a Kandinski style art work of poppies, created by Acorns class.

Cedars decorated the front window of the hall with silhouettes to represent the soldiers who went to war and are based on the 'silent silhouettes' that have been on display across the country as part of the Thank You campaign by the Royal British Legion.

Maples class created poppies to display in their front window, which act like stained glass, glowing red in the light from the class.

Lastly, the whole school walked to the War Memorial today for our annual Remembrance Day service and laying of the wreath.  Mr Leeming, one of our governors, gave the address and we all observed a minute's silence.  Thank you to all the parents who also attended the memorial with us.

We hope everybody had a fantastic summer and it is great to see all the children back looking smart and eager to learn! We have welcomed our new learning support assistant Miss Baxendale to the school and have seen several changes outside over the summer holidays, to help us improve our playtimes. We are looking forward to working alongside our parents and children to have a successful Autumn term.

Marathon Club

Written by Lennox and Victor

We have been doing Marathon Club for roughly 4 or 5 years, and we think it's a good way to get ready for school. We have 15 minutes to do 5 or 10 laps depending on our age. Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, do 5 laps. Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 do 10. It starts at 8:25am and finishes at 8:40am so we get a good amount of time to finish our laps, this means you should get up from 7:00am - 7:30am to get there on time. Except you could get up earlier if you want. So if you want to sign up for next year, ask Miss Rust, to get involved. It's really fun!!!

Spring Clean

posted 25 Feb 2018, 05:34 by Deputy Head

As you may have noticed over the past few weeks several areas of the school have been given a fresh look. Firstly, the trim trail is now covered in a soft astro-turf similar to the area at the bottom of the playground, hopefully this will help us get better use out of the trim trail throughout the whole year. The children have definitely made good use of it this week helping to keep them active during break times. Inside the school we have re-painted the hall to match the other recently decorated areas of the school, this makes the hall look much bigger and fresher, the children have also given positive feedback about the new look. This half term will again go very quickly as it is only five weeks long, finishing with our marathon club children completing their challenge towards the end of March, we look forward to seeing you all succeed.

On Friday 17th November, the whole school took part in a fundraising day for Children in Need.  All of the children could come in to school dressed in "spotty" clothes and they took part in a range of activities throughout the day.  The day was ended with a cake sale, selling cakes made by Maples class.

We raised a fantastic £327.48 for Children in Need.  Well done Bow Brickhill CofE Primary.
