Year 5/Reception Buddies
Children in Year 5 got together with children in Reception to start their year-long buddy project at the beginning of October. With the aim of developing interpersonal skills and supporting our younger pupils in their transition to Year 1 next summer, they paired up and spent an afternoon creating bookmarks for library books and sharing some of their favourite reads. It was lovely to see Year 5 children mentoring their partners in such a caring and considerate manner, and we’re all very excited to see where our buddy project takes us!
The Big Draw at Bowsland Green!
Our theme this year for Big Draw was DOODLES! All the children had a fantastic time producing their own doodle page after watching a tutorial video by a champion doodler. We combined all the individual doodle pages to create Bowsland Green’s Big Draw. Miss Williams was very impressed at the high level of doodling, and thinks the final piece looks incredible! Do you agree?
SG Music Festival at the Colston Hall
On Friday 30th June, choir again took part in the SG Music Festival at the Colston Hall.
Despite being exceptionally hot, we had a ‘Magic’ time & the children performed enthusiastically & with impeccable behaviour. It was again a pleasure to be involved in this amazing concert & they were a credit to the school, Mrs Day
Walk in the Woods KS1
This morning KS1 went for a wonderful walk in the woods. We explored different types of habitats in a woodland environment.
We found lots of natural resources to create dens for different animals. We had lots of fun and are very thankful for the parents/carers who supported us!
Art with our Grandparents:
On Thursday 23rd February KS1 welcomed some of our grandparents into school. We spent the morning making beautiful butterflies to represent us. We did this because during our wider curriculum learning we found out that butterflies look identical from a distance but when you look closer each one is unique, like us! Thank you to all the grandparents who came to support our learning, here are some pictures from the morning:
On Wednesday 14th December, Christmas Choir again took part in the Community Carols at Willowbrook Centre, Bradley Stoke. Despite being broadcast live on Bradley Stoke Radio, they held their nerve and certainly did their Bowsland Best – Mrs Day and Ms Kitchen were very proud of their behaviour and performance. Well done!
If you missed it or just want to listen again, it is being repeated on BSR on Christmas Day.
