It’s been a fantastic start to the year in LKS2 with our young learners impressing everyone with their mature, purposeful and imaginative responses to the challenges they’ve been set. Beech class have identified for themselves ambitious targets and are already working hard to achieve them, proudly showing their best selves within the classroom and around the school. We are a happy team whose first weekly focus, on giving a warm welcome to everyone, allowed them to shine when visitors and new starters joined us. There are lots of exciting things going on in the upcoming weeks and months, and we’re looking forward to sharing them with you here. From all of us in Beech class… Welcome to Bowsland Green!

Circus Skills

Lower Key Stage Two welcomed Nat and three of her musical theatre students from South Gloucestershire & Stroud College at the beginning of February for an afternoon of circus skills. Fir and Beech classes, who have been learning about the great magician Abdul Kazam from ‘Leon and The Place Between’, got the chance to juggle and twirl with Chloe, Jake and Hannah, who also joined some of us for a delicious (meat-free Monday) lunch beforehand. We were amazed by the students’ patient and nurturing attitudes and plans are already being hatched for a return visit.
