A Term in the Life of Bowling Park – Autumn Newsletter

Following on from the launch of Bowling Park TV we have also launched our brand new ‘A Term in the Life of Bowling Park’ Autumn Newsletter. The newsletter includes information about all the exciting learning the children have been doing this term along with upcoming key dates and information.

The Launch of Bowling Park TV


We are all very excited to launch Bowling Park TV! Every Friday the TV program will be shown in assembly and then uploaded on the blog. Each episode will feature a piece of good work from each class as well as photos and videos from any school trips or exciting activities in school. Along side Bowling Park TV, we have launched a brand new newsletter which will go out to the family heads and uploaded online. We hope you all enjoy this very exciting new project!

Below are the latest three episodes. Please check the blog each week to watch the latest episode.

 

 

Polar Express

The whole school topic has got us feeling festive this week. The classrooms have been decorated and children have been working on some fantastic topic related work. Year 6 have been researching about how different countries and religions around the world celebrate Christmas and year 3 have enjoyed a hot chocolate. We hope the children enjoy the whole school topic.

Ghyll Head

In November year 6 visited Ghyll Head in the Lake District. They explored and enjoyed all that the Lake District has to offer. They caved, walked, zip-lined and lots more! Here are some photos of the children having an amazing time.

Media Museum Trip to see the Soyuz Space Shuttle

Yesterday year 5 went to see the Soyuz Space Shuttle which was used by Time Peake to return to Earth. Excitingly, Tim Peake re-tweeted Bowling Park Primary School’s tweet regarding the visit!

1K A Day

A huge well done to all children who have been running 1K A Day each morning this week. All children and their families are invited to join in. Every day the children complete 1k a day they will receive a stamp in their very own 1k A Day booklet!

The challenge:

  1. Come to school every day at 8.30am.
  2. Run 1k around the playground (6.5 laps at NCS, 9 laps at US)
  3. Get your record book stamped by a mentor or your teacher.
  4. Fill a full week with stamps to be rewarded.
  5. Keep up the good work every week to be healthier and happier!

Year 6 Stay Safe Trip

On Wednesday year 6 attended a stay safe trip at Bradford Bulls. The children learnt:

  • how to cross the road safely,
  • the dangers of electricity and gas,
  • how to approach dogs
  • and what to do in case of a fire.
