Thank you to everyone who attended our final curriculum evening of the year. The Bowmansgreen art gallery was open for viewing with art work from across the school on display. Pupils have worked really hard on their art activities this half-term and we hope that you were impressed by their final pieces.

Yesterday was also an opportunity for parents in KS1 and KS2 to meet their child’s new class teacher and we hope that you took the opportunity to say ‘hello.’ Between now and the end of term, we will ensure that pupils receive a supportive transition towards their new classes. We recognise that some pupils will benefit from additional opportunities to meet their new teachers and familiarise themselves with their new classrooms and this will be built in to the remainder of this term.

The Healthforkids website is a new resource for Hertfordshire families that covers health-related subjects for children aged 4-11 years. It contains articles, advice and signposts to services and other resources in the Parents/Carers section whilst the children’s section includes games, activities and information about healthy minds and bodies, bereavement, how to access help and thinking about feelings.

BeeZee Families is another resource being recommended by our school nursing team. BeeZee Families is a healthy lifestyles programme which is free for 5-15 year olds and their families living in Hertfordshire.  The programme is led by nutritionists and behaviour change experts and focuses on making changes towards a healthier lifestyle.

Tomorrow, the Bowman music festival takes place. Don’t panic if you haven’t already purchased a ticket –  there is still the opportunity to purchase on the gate. It promises to be a great family event, with food, music and lots to keep the whole family entertained. It would be lovely to see you there in support of this event which will help raise money for our school.

Enjoy your weekend.
