Friday 5th April 2019 – Goodbye & Goodluck to Miss Mrozinski:

Filed under: Whole School @ 2:20 pm

Today marked the last day of Miss Mrozinski’s time as a classteacher at Bishop’s Waltham Junior School. After Easter, she begins a new chapter in her life, teaching up in Somerset. Whilst we are sad to see her leave, we wish her the very best of luck for the future.

She will be fondly remembered by pupils past and present and she will always have a place at our school.

On behalf of the staff, pupils and parents of BWJS – GOOD LUCK FOR THE FUTURE – WE WILL MISS YOU!

Friday 5th April 2019 – Happy Holidays Everyone:

Filed under: Whole School @ 2:18 pm

Where has the term gone? As usual, it has been packed with exciting learning, trips, visitors and events right across each year group. From Ironman exhibitions, French Days, Brass Concerts, Residentials, Sports Competitions, Discos, Fund-raising events…oh – and actual learning in the classrooms!

Whilst the children are outside participating in an Easter Challenge, I’m preparing for the final celebration assembly of the term. The piano is full of certificates, awards and special mentions. It is my favourite time of the week (not just because it’s practically the weekend) but because we get to celebrate together a wide range of achievements.

This week for example, we are presenting:
•Farewell gift for Miss Mrozinski
•Certificates and trophy to the winning ‘Aquasplash Team
•30 team merit certificates
•8 school value awards
•Individual swimming certificates
•Tae-kwon-do grading certificates
•Golf medal for Corhampton’s youngest (winning) member

Thank you for all of your support this term – we look forward to a memorable and enjoyable summer.

Tuesday 2nd April 2019 – Year 5 French Day

Filed under: Geography,Year 5 @ 8:06 pm

Year 5 embraced all things French today when they immersed themselves in our French Day! Over the past couple of weeks, the children have researched different regions in France to learn more about the French economy and today, they completed some ‘web quests’ to focus on how tourism benefits France’s economy. Working in small groups, the children worked their way through a variety of tasks using their research skills on the internet to answer questions and discover more about the tourist industry in France. This was interspersed with some food tasting of some french cheeses, breads and pastries! The children looked fantastic in their French themed costumes and worked really well to complete the tasks set. A great way to complete our Geography topic!

Tuesday 2nd April 2019 – Y4 Dazzle in Debut Brass Concert:

Filed under: Music,Whole School,Year 4 @ 4:31 pm

Following a term learning to play on a trumpet, trombone and euphonium – Y4 today showcased their talents at a special Listen2Me music concert for parents. Under the expert tuition of Mr Jim Potter (Hampshire Music Service), the pupils played 5 musical pieces in front of a packed hall of their parents and peers.

Considering the short amount of time that the pupils have been playing, the quality of music on these brass instruments was simply outstanding. From September, if there is enough interest, pupils will have the opportunity to receive tuition in brass from a specialist music teacher from Hampshire Music.

Thank you very much to all of the parents that supported the pupils in todays concert. It was very much appreciated.

Monday 1st April 2019 – Aquasplash Success for BWJS

Filed under: Swimming,Whole School @ 2:41 pm

Last Friday, seven schools competed in the Aquasplash Swimming Festival, which was held at our school pool.

This event is for Y3 and Y4 children only and has to be made up of a team of 6 boys and 6 girls.

There are individual races for backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and medley relay races but there are other skills that are tested too. Such as; who can glide the furthest and who can remain in a star shaped float for the longest.

There was some fantastic swimming from all the schools but BWJS regained the trophy and will now go on to compete in the finals in Aldershot, in June.

Well done to: Eliza M, Eva S, Helena B, Poppy C, Riley W, Ethan L, Freddie R, Oscar D-G, Isaac I, Evan H, Beth A & Eliza C.
