Headteacher’s Message – 15.12.17

Today, we have had an exclusive! This morning, Year 3 and Year 4 performed Bowmansgreen’s first ever carol concert in Spanish…… and it was amazing! Parents were thoroughly entertained by fantastic singing, acting and Spanish and it was a pleasure to watch. We hope that family members enjoyed the concert and I am sure they will join me in saying thank you to all of the staff involved in making it such a wonderful concert.
On Wednesday, staff and pupils enjoyed Christmas lunch together. Traditional Christmas food was served by some of our Year 6 pupils, including our always-reliable house captains. Crackers and Christmas songs helped to make it a very special lunchtime. As always, pupils were very well-mannered and behaved and from the feedback, empty plates and smiles, they all enjoyed themselves.
It was lovely to see pupils in their Christmas jumpers today, helping to raise funds for Save the Children as well as ensuring that they looked very festive for their class Christmas parties. Thank you to all parents who sent in food – do not be surprised if your child does not eat as much dinner as usual tonight!
On Monday, we will be holding our first Bowmansgreen ‘house’ event of the year. All pupils will be working, as part of their house team, on a piece of Christmas craftwork. The finished articles will be displayed and judged and a winning house will be announced. We hope this will be the first of many fun house activities which pupils will take part in throughout the year.
With a day and a half left of the term, this will be the final newsletter of 2017. Please remember that school closes at 1.30pm on Tuesday (Golden Opportunities is open until 4.30pm).
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy holiday and we look forward to seeing you in 2018.
