Headteachers Message 8th June 2018


Dear Parents,

 

     I do hope you all had a great half term and that you were able to enjoy at least some of the glorious weather we had.

 

     Many thanks to all the parents who were able to support Sports Day on Monday. Whether you were able to join us for the whole event or just pop in to share in the picnic lunch with your child, it was lovely to have you here and we hope you and your children enjoyed the morning . See all the fabulous running race medallists below. A huge thank you to Mrs Pond-Barrett who made the whole event happen and also a big thank you to the QM’s department who were a huge help in the preparations!

 


     Have a wonderful weekend,

Notice for FS1 Parents
Hello all our FS1 parents! You may have noticed a sign has gone up asking that outside of the following times:
8:45-9:00 and 12noon -12:15
when the FS1 setting entrance door isn’t manned, please access FS1 via the main school building and reception.
We have made this decision in order to keep our youngest children as safe as possible. Thank you so much for your co-operation.



Competition Time!
We have 2 competitions running as of  today:
1) Name our school currency
2) Design the picture to go on the school bank note
Children can enter as individuals, jointly with heir parents or it could even be a whole family effort. See the information coming home today!


Y6 First Aiders

Before the half term we had a couple of afternoons and a morning session with Mark Harris who taught us everything we need to know about First Aid.

We covered: bleeding, burns, breaks and sprains, choking, heart attacks, how to deal with an unconscious casualty, performing CPR, using a defibrillator, putting someone in the recovery position, and much, much more! We had great fun bandaging each other up!

Thank you to Mark Harris for providing such useful training for the children.

Headteachers Message 25th May 2018

     


Dear Parents,

 

What a busy week! There has been so much going on in all quarters of school. FS2 performed a great dance for their parents this week as part of their jungle themed stay and play. The children told me the elephant dung tasted wonderful (although Evie did let me into the secret that it was actually chocolate!) Thank you to all the parents who were able to come and share in the fun.

 

Y5 returned from their residential in Cologne and what a great time they’ve had. There were definitely a few tired faces getting off the bus! See the children’s round up of what they got up to below. (Thank you Mr Halstead for the present from the chocolate factory!)

 

Y2 have had a busy week doing their KS1 national tests (SATs) and we’re so proud of how hard they’ve worked and how well they focused for them. Hopefully Y2 also enjoyed their trip to the ice cream parlour.

Have a great weekend and half term!

     

Kelly Reeves


Year 5 Travellers Return!
Yesterday Y5 returned from their residential to Kรถln and what a great time they’ve all had! We missed you while you were away but it’s been great to hear all the exciting things you’ve been up to. Thank you to Miss Robertson, Mrs Devlin, Mr Halstead and Mrs Porter for taking such good care of them.



 










Welcome to the family!

This week we welcomed:

Maisie and Ellouise into FS2
Molly into Y3 and Alicia into Y4
 
We’re so pleased you’ve come to join us and hope you all have a great time at Bielefeld School.

Sadly we have 3 members of staff we are saying goodbye to today.
We would like to thank:
Mrs Steph Templeton
Mrs Cate Badirez

Assembly: Tolerance & Bullying: When should we speak up for others?
This week we thought about what tolerance means and what happens when people aren’t tolerant.
We also learnt about Ben Smith who ran 401 marathons in 401 days to raise awareness and money for anti-bullying charities.
Reflection: Sometimes we may be aware of unkind behaviour and even bullying and it may feel easier to do nothing and ignore what’s going on. However, by speaking up for those who don’t have the confidence to do so, we can really make a difference.
