Marathon Club

posted 6 Mar 2018, 00:09 by Deputy Head

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.

Inter-house competition

posted 8 Oct 2017, 04:24 by Deputy Head

On Friday teams from each house within the school took part in a bridge building competition. The house captains had made posters the week before to advertise the competition and on Friday lunchtime the teams gathered together in Cedars classroom. They only had newspaper and tape to help them in their quest to build the strongest bridge. After some team talks and some differing opinions on ways to construct their bridges the end results were as follows:
1st - St Andrews
2nd - St Patricks
3rd - St Georges
4th - St Davids
Well done to all the teams who took part, you all helped your house team gain extra points to get you a bit closer to a reward at the end of the half term. Thank you to the house captains and Miss Rust for organising the event too, a great way to start our inter-house competitions, we are already looking forward to the next one!

Well done!

The new school year is off to a flying start, hopefully you have all received your class newsletters and the dates for the term already. The children are already deeply engaged in their new topics and have all shown that they are up for the challenge in their new classes. We are really impressed by the commitment and behaviour shown by the children this term so far, the playleaders are organising activities at lunchtimes, having spent one lunchtime creating their own certificates for the children taking part in their activities. Choir starts this week coming and after-school clubs are also being well attended. The year 6 leaders are enjoying their new responsibilities and they are looking forward to helping us drive the school further forward with the help of the newly elected class council representatives. A great start to the new school year!
