Primary school statutory assessments are back this year, after a two year interruption due to Lockdown. KS1 SATs take place throughout the month of May and KS2 SATs tests took place this week. Our fantastic Year 6 pupils should be very proud of the way in which they approached their preparation and tests – they all worked incredibly hard and demonstrated the resilience and determination to do well. Staff could not be more impressed or proud of pupils’ attitudes and efforts. Well done, Year 6!

Last week, the school council launched a new competition to encourage and promote healthy eating at Bowmansgreen. ‘Who is eating a healthy packed lunch?’ involves one pupil per day being recognised for their healthy packed lunch, by the dining hall staff.  The five winning pupils are celebrated and receive a certificate during Friday’s assembly. Take a look at the competition launch video, below.

Mr Sanders has been very impressed with the Bowmansgreen sports teams who have recently taken part in a range of fixtures and events. A special mention goes to the Y4 speed stacking teams who ‘cleaned up’ at a recent tournament, taking the top two spots. Amazing!
1st place team: Henry P, Hadley, Rhys, Arthur, Ellie, Millie, Zoha, Mia
2nd place team – Frank, Xavier, Mason, Henry W, Poppy, Arsel, Cassi, Libby.

Enjoy your weekend.
