Dear Parents

Happy New Year 2020 and welcome back.  We have had a great week with lots of exciting things happening and great learning taking place.

Mrs Troop showed 29 visitors from Hong Kong around school this week with Julian Brown from the University of Northampton.  Julian said the students really enjoyed it and will take back wonderful memories and, to quote, said, “I am always extremely impressed with the approach you have at your school.  It would be wonderful to put the ethos in a bottle and share it elsewhere”.

Nursery were having a great time outdoors under their new covered area; however, they were getting very wet watering the plants!  It is lovely to see the nursery children come up to the big hall for lunch with their smiles and waves.  

Early Years have been doing lots of lovely artwork making stamps to print with and creating beautiful winter inspired sculptures. 

Y1 started the week dressed as pirates and were seen hunting around the grounds with a school map looking for clues to find a treasure chest.

Three gold eggs appeared in Y2 and a friendly dragon was seen flying across Bridgewater Primary School.  The children gathered clues to write reports about the mysterious event.

Y3 and Y5 have had many wonderful heart-warming letters replying to their Christmas messages, which they gave to the patients at Northampton General Hospital.  I also took a moving phone call from a gentleman who said the letter had put a sparkle in his wife’s eyes.  They had been married for 45 years and sadly, she passed away in the New Year.  We send our sincere condolences to the gentleman and his family.

Y4 had a fantastic Egyptian Day all dressed up making pitta bread, creating Rosetta stones out of clay and finding out all sorts of interesting information and facts. 

In Y5 and Y6 there are many sports leaders and sports crew members who are making a big differences at lunch times.  We have a range of fantastic brand new resources and they are leading games and challenges for the children.  Lots of them enjoy taking part and the lunchtime supervisors say lunch times are a lot calmer.  Well done to Miss Barker and Miss Holmes for organising this latest initiative, not only increasing the enjoyment at playtimes but also keeping everyone fit.

Tessa Parkinson came into school and the school Prime Minister had to put the school stamp on to her leggings alongside other schools to raise awareness for Mental Health Day on 14 February. 

Keep an eye on Twitter, which can be found via the school’s website for the latest pictures and information about events in school.

Have a great weekend.
