Headteacher’s Message – 26.01.18

What a busy week we have had!
On Monday, we hosted a Setpoint maths workshop for pupils from Bowmansgreen and local schools, with a focus on problem solving. Throughout the day, pupils from years 3 and 4 (Haroon, Jason, Harry & Jed) had fun working together, in the hall, to solve some very tricky maths challenges.
Meanwhile, in the gym something spectacular took place! Bowmansgreen was the launch school for the new ‘View From Space To Earth’ challenge run by AlohaTri and the Triathlon Trust. Throughout the day, pupils and staff ran and cycled their way to travelling 1097km! Pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day and rose to the challenge. Thank you to Rav Dighe and Miss Brennan for making this happen – it was a fantastic day!
This week, Mrs Stanley and the breakfast club staff have been working in overdrive to prepare a range of breakfasts to support national Farmhouse Breakfast Week, including this morning’s special hot breakfast of bacon, sausage, egg, beans, tomatoes and mushrooms – which was delicious! The breakfast club at Bowmansgreen is very popular and provides a fantastic start to the day for our pupils, parents and staff.
Tuesday’s parent workshop focused on Relationships and Sex Education. Thank you to all parents who attended and – as always – we value your support and feedback. We appreciate that many of you cannot attend the Tuesday morning sessions due to work commitments and we encourage you to access the slides and notes so that you don’t miss out. The slides from the last two workshops are attached to this newsletter and will be available on the school website (via the ‘Parents’ tab) from Monday.
To support National Careers Week (March 5th – 9th) we will be running a number of activities and events to inform, inspire and motivate pupils about the vast range of jobs and careers they have to choose from. We welcome support and involvement from parents and would like to hear from anyone who would be able to spare some time during this week, to run a workshop or Q&A session about their career, especially if you have a particularly unusual or exciting job. Please contact the school office if you would be able to spare some time.
Have a lovely weekend.
