Another fantastic week of learning across the school! We hope you all enjoy a well earned rest over the half term break and come back refreshed and eager to start the final journey of this school year.
Our year 3 class enjoyed a wonderful trip to the Hay Festival where they spent the day immersed in literature. It was a huge success, an amazing experience and one that I’m sure the school would like to run on an annual basis.
This week the BBC team from London visited our school to film our School Council & Eco Committee’s assembly to launch a new project aimed at reducing the amount of plastic we use across the school. Our guests gave some wonderful feedback of their experience at Bips and all of the children were a credit to their families.
The BBC’s visit helped to highlight the challenges that plastic pollution poses to our planet. This marks the official launch of an important journey for our children and we need your support! Please help your child on our mission to make all lunchboxes ‘packaging free’. All the children are bringing home a letter today that provides details of our ‘Lunchbox Challenge’ – the children are really passionate about the project, so lets really go for it and do our bit!
We are also sending home a letter today with information about how we use data about our children. This is driven by EU legislation and all schools are required to comply. We will keep you informed of developments as they happen.

‘Thunk of the Week’
Do clothes make people cool?
Don’t forget to check out the Family/Community board (in the large playground) for events that you may wish to do in the holidays with your children.
Hi everyone, we have decided that if we issue a small Newsletter termly it will give everyone the chance to know what your money has been raised for and the proposals that we have following your responses on the recent questionnaire.
As many of you were interested in the Quiz night we are currently putting wheels in motion to have one in September and details will follow as soon as things are confirmed.
We have had a successful year so far, raising £221.70 at the Valentine disco and then a further £144.45 following our Royal wedding celebration where the children enjoyed a few cakes and cup of lemonade/water (depending on their choice).
Plans are already underway to have the playground remarked and School Council are looking at designs and carrying out surveys with the children to see what everyone thinks. Details will follow when things have been finalised.
Going forward we aim to raise money for the following:
Trips subsidies for each class
Gazebos to be used at sports day
Our own disco equipment so that we can get the children to run the play list for our annual Halloween disco/Valentine disco.
As always if you would like to help out at the eventswe are happy to have you and you will just need to see Sarah in the office and she will add you to the list.
We are grateful for all your support and hope to see you at the summer fayre on 17thJuly 2018.
