Hanging Basket Competition: First Prize

Filed under: Whole School @ 9:03 pm

We are very proud to announce that our green-fingered gardeners won the Bishop’s Waltham in Bloom: Children’s Hanging Basket Competition!

The basket was planted up with Begonias, Petunias, Lysimachia aurea, and Helichrysum petiolare ‘Limelight’.  Our plant choice was inspired by Monet’s garden at Giverny 2016 where orange nasturtiums and dahlias were juxtaposed with reddish-purple dahlias.  See pictures below:

Our clever Year 5 & Year 6 pupils planted up the basket in May.  It has been watered daily and fed weekly by Bishop’s Waltham in Bloom, and can be found hanging in Red Lion Street.

Well done Bishop’s Waltham Upper-School gardeners!

With only a few days of school left, our enthusiastic gardeners took up their garden forks and harvested our potatoes.  What a bumper crop we have this year – all thanks to the summer rains!

Ask Mrs Bradley if you would like some, they are beauties and we have lots!

Kindness is one of the schools most important values. The pupils demonstrate this value on a daily basis – especially in the way they support, enjoy and value the friendships that they have. Lovely to see 🙂

All those that attended the grand opening of the exhibition, agreed the work was of a high quality and well worth the price tags… Anyone interested in purchasing the masterpieces, will be pleased to know that the world renowned Christie’s auction house will be selling the work in the near future! Additionally, the children also displayed their Science habitats at the exhibition.

Thursday 13th July 2017 – Year 3 fly to Florida!

Filed under: Geography,Year 3 @ 7:12 pm

Yesterday, Year 3 went on a very exciting trip to Florida! They have been learning about the American State as part of their Geography topic and yesterday was all about real experiences. The children had made their own passports for homework, they cam dressed in their holiday clothes and brought a teddy along for the ride. We were very lucky to have Mr Barnes join us for some of the day as he was able to talk about his job as a pilot and help the children to understand what an airport is like and how the planes operate before, during and after landing.

The children did some comparison work about Gatwick Airport and Orlando International Airport, as well as comparing the High Street in Bishop’s Waltham with International Drive in Orlando. We then went to the park for a picnic before returning to school to complete some map work about The Magic Kingdom in Disney World.

The children (and adults!) had a fantastic day! Thank you to Mr Barnes for giving up his time to support the children’s learning.

Tuesday 11th July 2017 – Pasta Salad final at Piccola Roma

Filed under: DT,Year 3,Year 4 @ 4:41 pm

9 children from across Years 3 and 4 were chosen to take part in the final of the Pasta Salad competition held at Piccola Roma in the village. The children worked with their partner to create their salad in a professional kitchen under the watchful eye of their head chef! The salads were then judged using a variety of criteria before an overall winner was chosen – Tilly and Beka were victorious and won a voucher for dinner at the restaurant as their prize – well done! The children then had a masterclass in pasta making with the head chef before tasting some of his creations – a great time was had by all! Thank You to Davina Tibbetts who organised the whole project – we have all enjoyed taste testing, designing and cooking!
