Performing Arts Day

Children sang, made music and danced their way through the day yesterday. We had a constant flow of parents and carers dropping in to watch children perform during our Middle Street Performing Arts day. It was, of course absolutely amazing!  The day ended with the adult choir surprising everyone with a stunning performance and a fabulous and loud session with the samba band. Well done to everyone who took part and thank you to all the staff and Mr Brazil for ensuring the day was a big hit and ran smoothly. Thank you to all those, and there were lots of you through the day, who turned up to support and enjoy the performances.

Mini Olympics

A group of children from Key Stage 1 joined Ms Busby at BAHSVIC to take part in a fun day of sporting activities at the Mini Olympics. The activities included gymnastics, bocchia, netball, trampolining and athletics. Ms Busby was very impressed by the children’s talents and how beautifully behaved they were. Well done children!

Lost! Please Help.

Sol in Year 3 has lost his scooter. It has blue handles and clear wheels, lightening strikes on sides and a broken bit of black plastic at the back of the right base. Maybe someone has taken it by mistake. Please check your scooter if it is similar.

Mimi in Year 2 has lost a special pink littlest pet shop cat. She has lost one before because it was stolen by a seagull!  Please return it to school if you find it.

Book Fair

On Monday and for the rest of the week we have a book fair selling books in the library. If we sell over £300 worth of books we get a 100% commission for the school. Any funds we raise will be spent on new books for the school.
