We’re going to be the radio!

Next week, Bowling Park will make an appearance on BBC Radio 4 as part of a Born in Bradford programme called ‘My World, My Class’.

Pupils in Year 3 worked closely with the Born in Bradford team, by using Samsung phones for research. They worked with Sue Mitchell, who taught the children how to use phones as recorders. They were also inspired by Ian Beesley, a BiB artist, to use the phones as cameras and to take photos showing their lives, beginning with the food they eat.

The programme gives great insights into life in Bradford; what it is like to come to Britain not speaking English, what it is like to be British born and making friends with children from round the world and what life is like with step-relatives and extended families. It is both funny and moving and a positive picture of life in Bradford.

We hope you can listen to the show when it airs.

The Solar Eclipse

We hope you all enjoyed the Solar Eclipse on Friday. Although it was a little cloudy, the children had the opportunity to experience the change in light and temperature. The children then discussed this back in class (check out Yr2’s page for a lovely example of their eclipse artwork Year 2 Blog)

Here are a few photographs of the eclipse, taken from our New Cross Street site.

Parents’ Evening

A big thank you to everyone who came to Parents’ Evening at NCS last night, and to those who are coming to US tonight. It was lovely to see so many people here. We hope you have found it a useful experience and you had the opportunity to see how great your children are doing in school. It is also important to know what your child’s next steps are, so that they can make even more progress.

Here are some of the wonderful comments from last night’s Parents’ Evening. These are from both children and parents.

Play it safe for the solar eclipse

On Friday at around 9.30am, the UK will experience a partial solar eclipse! This is very exciting and is the first time we have experienced such a large-scale eclipse since 1999.

It is important, however, to make sure that you stay safe during the eclipse. Please do not look directly at the sun, either with the naked eye or with a camera.

For more information, please visit these two sites:

Maths Magician

This morning we held our Maths Magician Assemblies at both sites. The assemblies were a great success, it is clear that children have been practising hard to learn all of their times tables. We even saw one of our Year 1 children admit they were learning their 9 times tables already! Wow! This just goes to show what you can do if you put your mind to it.

Congratulations to all the children who took part.

World Book Day!

What a fantastic day we had on World Book Day! We celebrated with an extra special assembly, where Mr Langley and Mrs Thompson performed their very own version of our new favourite book ‘Mr Tiger Goes Wild’, by Peter Brown. Everyone especially enjoyed watching Mr Langley ‘go wild’!

We were also delighted to be able to present each class with a brand new box of the best books we could get our hands on. We hope you enjoy discovering all the enthralling stories inside.

Thank you to everyone who made the effort to dress as their favourite animal book character. You all looked amazing!
