Dear Parents

Bridgewater Geographers

I have seen some super geography lessons around school in Y1 and Y6 this week and could see the progression and high expectations.  In Y1 the children instantly recognised a map of the school and used their knowledge to find locations by following clues and using symbols and a key.  In Y6 they moved from finding 2 to 6 figure grid references on their maps of Northampton.  If you are out and about this weekend you might like to let your marvellous mappers find the way!!

Young Leaders

Our Young Leaders have attended training this week and are well on the way to being fully trained and ready to organise games for our younger children.  What a wonderful life skill.

Online Safety

Simon Aston (Local Authority) visited school this week to talk to Y4, Y5, Y6 and staff about keeping safe online.  His key message is to use the internet but use it safely and have discussions about how to keep yourselves safe online as well as manage the amount of time that the children are online. Mrs Redden has uploaded all the links to the website in a folder called online safety within the safeguarding folder.

Harvest Production

We are looking forward to our Harvest Production next week for the Y4 parents.  I have already caught a glimpse of some dancing which was quite spellbinding; choreographed by Miss Morley who is also a dance teacher and knows how to draw the best out of the children. This year our Harvest Festival collection will support the Charity HOPE, any support would be gratefully appreciated.

No Nuts!

A gentle reminder that we are a nut free school and would ask that all parents provide a healthy packed lunch that does not contain nuts or nut-based products.


The children’s photographs are next Wednesday, please make sure that they come in their uniform that day and not their sports kit.  Thank you

Have a lovely weekend
