Goodness, where has this school year gone?! We only have 3 more days left until we say goodbye to the year 6 children and hello to the year 4's who are joining upper key stage two.
This week we performed our amazing BGT Leavers Show where everyone had a part and did us proud. Also on Wednesday we had our Outdoor learning Day where we took part in a range of activities including camp fire making, marshmallow melting, mud pie making, den building, journey stick making, seed planting, bug hunting and clay modelling. It was great fun and the children were really well behaved.

The whole school, especially the Year 6's have had a busy week last week.
The Year 6's adventured to Skern lodge where they completed a series of challenges. They also took part in: kayaking, surfing, football, abseiling and swimming.
Monday and Tuesday saw the Year 6's transition day at Poltair and Wednesday and Thursday saw the Year 6's transition to Penrice. All had a fab time exploring their new schools, participating in lessons and immersing themselves in KS3 life. Well done!
Bishop Bronescombe's whole school transition day was last Wednesday and we will have another one on Wednesday 10th July. Faith Class met their new teacher and class of the current Year 4's. The children tested their drama skills in a group building activity, as well as learning facts and interests about their new class friends. All the children produced some beautiful art work for the new class flag and stain glass window.
Whilst the Year 6's were at camp and transition, the Year 5's have been busy with outdoor learning and creating animal art (see our photos). We now have a beautiful new display in the KS2 corridor.

Last week we had our annual Science week where we had some visitors in to talk to us about their scientific jobs. We also carried out some investigations, one of which was to make a working flag pole using pulleys. These proved tricky at the start but we all persevered and managed to make a working flag pole by the end of the lesson!
This week we had another successful Sports Day, the weather was kind to us and it didn't rain! Everyone took part and showed great sportsmanship - The finale was the Year 6 children taking part in a relay race which was fantastic.
Some Y6 are off to camp on Friday to Skern Lodge, coming back Monday. Have a lovely time and don't get sunburnt!
Just a Reminder:
Please make sure your child has a PE Kit in school every day...this consists of black shorts, white t. shirt and plimsolls or trainers, thank you.
As many of you know the Year 6s had their SATs this week. Each morning, the Year 6s and their siblings enjoyed their SATs breakfast which the PTA kindly helped with (see our photos). Monday- Thursday the Year 6s sat their SATs papers- they were all so fantastic and we couldn't be prouder of them.
All the Year 5s had a joint Let's Think English lesson in the hall, where they then wrote their own story based on Alma's story.
Today we have had a science morning. Hope and Faith class both mixed into groups and had to design and then create their own parachute or three. Then, we all went onto the decking by KS2 and tested how long it took for parachute to land after being dropped: the longest to stay airborne was 23 seconds! 2nd place was then 5 seconds. Make sure to ask your children about aerodynamics. Have a look at our photos to see our science lesson.
