Dear Parents and Carers,
We started this week with an assembly about race, culture and belief. We talked about our own school culture and how ‘The Biggin Hill Way’ is very much a part of this. Children also listened to Caliban’s Dream - a piece of music that was used in the London Olympics to bring together representatives from nations from across the world!
Last Friday, 4B had a visit from two very special VIP’s. I must say, they were exceptionally well behaved and would make a great addition to our school.... they were two fabulous guide dogs from Guide Dogs.org. It was great to meet the dogs and their owners and the children enjoyed hearing about how these amazing dogs help people who are visually impaired. My thanks must go to Mrs Buchanan for organising this for the children. I do hope the dogs will come back and visit us again!
On Monday, the school celebrated Roald Dahl day with a special lunch. We had some 215 children who had a school lunch on Monday. The children enjoyed listening to Roald Dahl poems and rhymes while they ate their delicious lunches! Thanks to our catering team who made a special effort to make this a fun lunchtime for the children.
On Tuesday, Mrs Windover and Mr Devlin re-launched our wonderful BHPS Choir and had a staggering 43 children attend!!! I think it is fair to say that listening to children singing again was a real tear jerker! We do still have a few spaces in our choir for children in year 4/5/6 - if your child would like to join, please let us know.
On Wednesday, I wrote to you all regarding our ‘Team Points for Toothbrushes’ campaign to support Bromley Brighter Beginnings - a fantastic charity. Please can I ask for your support to really get behind this campaign - let's see how many toothbrushes we can collect as a school!
I also wrote to families yesterday regarding our systems for homework. If you do have any questions or concerns regarding this, please do speak to your child’s class teacher.
Finally, a very special ‘thank you’ to our wonderful volunteers - we are incredibly grateful for your time and support, it really makes a difference to the children at BHPS. For any volunteers that have put their name forward; I know that Mrs Helps will be contacting you, if she has not already done so, very soon.
My very best wishes for a wonderful weekend.
