Headteacher’s Message – 19.01.18

This week, we welcomed two new members of the school community to Bowmansgreen. Cotton and Socks (our two newly adopted rabbits) have settled into their new home. Pupils have shown them lots of love and attention and have been helping them to get used to their new surroundings.
Please be reminded that our next parent workshop takes place on Tuesday morning at 9am with the focus on Relationships and Sex Education. Please see the section about Parent Workshops on the next page.
Forest School at Bowmansgreen has proved to be a very popular and much enjoyed part of our curriculum. Pupils who have taken part so far have had fun learning and working together around the school site and Mrs Stanley has been really impressed with the positive attitudes, resilience and great team-work that pupils have shown. Next term, Mrs Stanley will be leading a parent workshop focused on Forest School so that parents can find out more about this part of our curriculum. When your child takes part in Forest School, please ensure that they wear warm layers, hardwearing clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty and sturdy outdoor shoes or boots. They will get messy!
On Monday, pupils will be taking part in The View from Space to Earth event – a duathlon run by the Triathlon trust. For more information about what your children will be involved in, please follow the link below.
I have been really inspired by two of our KS2 pupils this week. Thomas (4C) will be taking part in Macmillan’s ‘Brave the Shave’ and Eva (4C) is currently in the process of swimming the length of the English Channel (not in one go!) to raise money for Wateraid. In Monday’s assembly, they were able to explain to the whole school what their sponsored challenges will involve and their reasons for supporting their chosen charities.
Have a lovely weekend.
