Year 4 are excelling themselves with the quality of home learning that they are handing in. I have been so impressed with the standard and creativity over the last couple of weeks and they should be very proud of their efforts. Jasmine and Csanad produced two very different models for their home learning this week, supporting their science topic of rocks, soils and fossils. Fantastic work!
Thank you to everyone who turned out yesterday for our Open Morning. We hope that you enjoyed your visit and were able to get a really good sense of our curriculum, values and ethos and had your questions answered. It was great to see so many new faces as well as existing members of our school community. If you would like to arrange another visit, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
Some Year 4 and Year 5 pupils have been taking part in a fantastic programme with Shaolin London. They have been working hard throughout the series of workshops focusing on fitness, resilience and courage and they have even been learning Mandarin! They have learnt so much through this programme and really enjoyed the experience. It is great to see how far they have come.
Last week, they visited the Shaolin Temple and spent the afternoon working on their Form, calligraphy, kick-boxing and meditation. It was an inspirational visit and the boys are already looking forward to their next visit.
What an absolute pleasure it was to host the National Youth Choir of Antigua and Barbuda on Friday! The choir performed songs, dances and percussion numbers, including some well known tunes on the steel pan. They were amazing and literally got the whole school to their feet to join in. It was a wonderful afternoon of singing and dancing that brought the whole school together -we even learnt some new dance moves! I would like to thank the choir and the High Commissioner of Antigua and Barbuda for visiting and being part of a very special afternoon at Bowmansgreen.
The National Youth Choir are currently touring England, not only to entertain audiences but also to raise awareness of the destruction caused to the tiny Caribbean Island of Barbuda which was devastated by hurricane Irma in 2017. Bowmansgreen will be helping to raise money for the Hurricane Appeal fund. Please contact the school if you would like to make a donation.
Y1 welcomed a very special visitor to Bowmansgreen. The IBF Super middleweight champion James DeGale, MBE, talked to pupils about his career, how he stays fit and healthy and what it takes to be a champion. He brought in his IBF belt, his Olympic gold medal and his MBE. What a fantastic, inspiring experience for Y1!
Girls B v Fleetville
The girls B team travelled to play Fleetville in a representative match on Monday 23rd and came away winning 2-0. Both goals were scored by Anisa with some great performances all round by all of the squad. On a dry and bouncy pitch due to the recent summer weather, it was difficult to get any passing together so it meant it was a game for running with the ball. It was a tight entertaining match and credit to both teams for working so hard in the heat.
Squad – Emily, Natasha, Jamyie, Kiera, Anisa, Sophie, Darcie, Abbi & Rhia.
