Dear Parents and Carers,
This morning we were treated to a wonderful assembly from Tim Peake Class. A very special ‘well done’ to the children and to Miss Powell and the Reception team for preparing the children so well.
We have had a wonderful week in school and this afternoon I am very much looking forward to hosting, along with Miss Turner (Music Lead), our first ever KS1 & Year 3 Choir and Musical Concert.
Last Friday evening it was a pleasure to welcome back our year 6 children and staff from the Isle of Wight. The children were full of smiles (and yawns) as they got off the coach! It is clear from the adventures that I have heard about this week, that the children really have had a wonderful time. Please keep an eye out in next week’s newsletter for a full article featuring both the Isle of Wight and also the special week in school for children that didn't attend.
Earlier in the week, Mrs Sanford, Mr Day and I wrote to families (R-Y6) about our plans for Sports Day. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to your child’s class teacher. The Friends of BHPS have also confirmed that they will be running their Summer Fair directly after the KS2 Sports Day event. The Friends will be writing to you separately about this to provide more information. We look forward to welcoming our school community to this lovely event.
On Tuesday, we held our outreach session on Dyslexia and Working Memory and we hope this proved to be both useful and informative. Our next and final outreach session for the year will be taking place on Tuesday 5th July from 9-10am in school, and from 6pm - 7pm via Zoom. The focus of this session will be ‘Managing Transitions’. This includes large transitions such as new classes as well as managing day-to-day transitions such as leaving the house.
We celebrated ‘World Ocean Day’ on Tuesday and all enjoyed dressing in blue. Thank you to Mrs Churchward, Geography Lead, for planning and organising the day for the whole school.
A polite reminder that you are still able to donate ‘Jump for Jubilee’ sponsored bounce money either via ParentPay or placed in a named envelope and dropped into the main office.
Finally, a very special ‘thank you’ to the Friends of BHPS for organising and running the Father’s Day doughnuts for the school.
Have a wonderful weekend.
My very best wishes,
Deputy Headteacher, SENCo and Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead
