Year FS1 Week 27 2015

Well, we’ve finally made it to the last day of the school year, and what a busy year we have had. It’s been fantastic to see how the children have progressed during the year and we are all so proud of them.
It’s been another busy week in the setting and we really enjoyed our “under the sea” party and our fish and chips snack followed by ice cream……and the sun shone for us too. There were some truly amazing fishy costumes.
We wish you all a very happy summer holiday and the FS1 team would like to thank you for all your support during the year.
Dates for your calendar
Back to school Wednesday 2nd September at 8.45 a.m.

Thank you for your support,
The FS1 Team

Year FS2 Week 27 2015

It’s hard to believe that this school year has come to an end already! The children in FS2 have done us proud which was plain to see at the Graduation Ceremony on Tuesday; we were really pleased to see so many of you attended and we know the slideshow bought many a tear to your eyes (and ours too!).
The children had a fantastic time at the joint pirates’ party with FS1 – the children really enjoyed having fish and chips altogether, finishing off with an icecream and a play in the FS1 garden!
We would like to thank you all for your support this year and for the enjoyment we have shared with your children. They are definitely ready for their next step into Year One and we will look forward to still seeing them around school! For those who are moving on to pastures new, we wish you all the very best in your new schools!  It is also time to say bon voyage to members of staff in FS2 as both Mrs Gibbons and Mrs Kelly are moving on, and I’m sure you would want to join us in wishing them all the very best in their new adventures in the UK – thanks for your hard work, FS2 won’t be the same without you and you will be sorely missed!

Enjoy the summer break! 
Best wishes from the FS2 team

Year 1 Week 27 2015

Wow the time has zoomed by and we have completed our final week in Year 1. It has been a year full of exciting learning and laughter. It has been great to see the children progress and develop in confidence as the year has gone by.  We have loved getting to know the children and hopefully inspire them with their learning.
We wish all the children the best for next year with their Year 2 learning journey. We wish you a happy and fun summer (hopefully full of glorious sunshine).
Thank you for all of your support this year it has been greatly appreciated!

All the best,
The Year 1 team 

Year 2 week 27 2015

It has been a great week in Year Two to round off a great year.  At the beginning of the week all the children performed brilliantly in the musical extravaganza showing off what they have learnt in music this year.
It has been a pleasure to teach you all.  We wish anyone moving over the summer good luck in their new schools and anyone coming back in September, we look forward to seeing you soon.

Have a lovely summer
From Miss Mead, Mrs Halstead and the Year Two team

Year 3 Week 27 2015

Another busy week with the high point being the musical extravaganza put on by the children on Tuesday!
We would like to thank you all for your support throughout your child’s first year in Key Stage 2. They have worked hard and are now ready to take their next step into Year 4. Their teachers are ready and excited  with lots of interesting activities and learning challenges lined up for the next academic year!

We would also like to thank Mr Fidler, Mrs Carroll, and Mr Reeves for their wonderful input in Art, Science and Music! Thank – you!

We are also saying goodbye to Mrs Baker who is returning to the UK. She has been a valued member of our team and will be greatly missed! We would like to thank her for her hard work and dedication and wish her well for the future.

If you are leaving Bielefeld this summer we wish you well and hope your children enjoy their new schools!

We hope you have a good summer break and look forward to seeing you in September!

Kind regards – the Year 3 team.

Year 4 Week 27 2015

Well, that’s it!  The end of the school year.  Where did the time go?  The year has flown by and it only seems like yesterday that we were getting in battle formation ready for the Roman invasion and since then we’ve found out about the Maya civilisation, been characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and travelled back in time once more to Tudor England.

I’d like to take this opportunity to give me sincere thanks for all of your help and support with your children’s learning throughout the year.  The children has worked incredibly hard and have made excellent progress with their learning.  They have been an absolutely fantastic class and we’ve had a huge amount of fun times this year.  I will really miss them next year and wish them all the best in Year 5, where I’m sure they’ll continue to make good progress with their learning!

Enjoy the well-deserved break Year 4!

Have a fabulous summer!
Mrs Pond-Barrett

We have celebrated the end of a fantastic and highly successful year with a number of events which have demonstrated the skills gained and personal progression of the children this year.  We hope you enjoyed seeing your children’s achievements in the Art Exhibition, the Musical Extravaganza and Bielefeld School’s Got Talent.  The Year 5 Camp brought together a number of the outdoor skills the children had learnt during the year’s Forest School sessions, including the essential skill of working as part of a team.

For those who are leaving, we wish you all the best in your new schools – please let us know how you are settling in.  For those who are staying, have a great summer holiday and we look forward to seeing you back in September.

Thank you for your continued support.
Have a lovely summer.

Year 6 Week 27 2015

Wow! What a week! What a year!

We have truly enjoyed every minute of working with Y6 this year and watching every single child grow into a fantastic individual. Your children are a real credit to you.

We wish them every success in their futures and a fun filled summer!

Year FS1 Week 26 2015

It’s been a busy week yet again in FS1, with lots of playing in the garden and on the bikes. The children have been making “shark” masks and painting lots of fishy pictures. Hope you had a look at our paintings and drawings at the Art Exhibition today. Thank you to all the parents who came to the last “Stay and Play” of the year. Can’t believe we’ve made it – with just one more week to go. The upper FS1 children are excited about the new year ahead of them in FS2 and have loved going across to their new classrooms. We have also met some of the new FS1 children who will join us in September.
Our end of year dressing up party will take place on Wednesday 15th July, so don’t forget your “under the sea” costume.
We have been reading the story “Barry the fish with fingers” and so for our party we will be having fish fingers and chips. Sounds yummy!!!
The FS1 team wish all those children leaving Bielefeld School next week all the best in their new schools. To all the other children, we look forward to seeing you back in September, in FS2 or in FS1. Have a lovely summer holiday everyone and keep safe.
Snack next week: Cheese & crackers, cereals, party fish fingers and chips, savoury platter and muffins.

Dates for your calendar
Please note that the end of term for FS1 will be at midday on Friday 17th July. The main school will close at 13.15. There will be NO E.D.C. that day.
Back to school Wednesday 2nd September.
