Happy New Year!

Welcome back after the Christmas holidays!

Pupils have returned to school focused and ready to learn.

Monday’s assembly introduced our school value for this half-term: Friendship.
Staff will be looking out for role-models who demonstrate and exemplify good friendship.

Bowmansgreen would like to welcome Miss Chivers who has joined the Year 4 teaching team. We also have a number of new pupils across the school who we are sure will feel happy and valued as part of the Bowmansgreen school community.

Y4 Football Team

What a pleasure it was to watch the Y4 football team play their match this afternoon! Not only did they win their game 4-2 but each and every player gave 100% on the pitch and they played really well as a team. Archie, Max, Harry, Brendon, Lennon, Olivier, Jed and Mikail, you were fantastic – I’m looking forward to the next match!

Year 4 Home Learning

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!

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!
