Last week was so much fun!


Year 5’s Leap Day event was a great success, with an impressive £465 raised for sports equipment.  Congratulations to Mia P (Y6) for guessing that the Bowmansgreen Bear was named Gracie.  Antonia (Rec) was the proud raffle winner of the signed Michael Morpurgo book.  The rest of the children were winners by having a yummy doughnut at school, happy days!


Year 5 loved running the Leap Day stall and games.  If any class groups would like to organise and run at stall at our summer event on Friday 7th June, please let FOBS know via the school office.


Crazy Hair Day on Friday was crazzzzzzy.  The children were rocking some really funky styles and colours.  The heavens opened at drop-off but that didn’t dampen spirits.  FOBS received many generous donations for the Colour Fun Run Rainbow Raffle, thank you.  Thanks also goes to our FOBS volunteers who collected the donations in the torrential rain.


This week is another exciting week with school running a book swap on Tuesday and World Book Day on Thursday.  FOBS’s Mother’s Day pop-up shop will be open during school time on Friday 8th March.  This is where the girls and boys can buy a little Mother’s Day gift for their loved ones.  Presents range from 50p to £3.00 and are gift wrapped with love.  This was a sell-out event last year – the children were empowered by choosing and spending their money on others.


FOBS Colour Fun Run 2024 takes place on Saturday 23rd March.  Bookings  are now open to the wider community and some slots have sold out.  Please secure your spot by purchasing a ticket as slots cannot be reserved without a ticket.   Ticket sales close on 16th March.  Our next blog will be all about the FOBS Colour Fun Run, so watch this space!
