Sunday 4th March 2018 – Success for BWJS Swimming Teams

Filed under: PE,Swimming,Whole School @ 1:55 pm

Lower School Swimming Team
In February, a Lower School swimming team competed in the Eastleigh and District AquaSplash gala in which twelve schools from the area took part. As always, it was a very exciting and noisy occasion with every school putting forward a team of twelve swimmers to compete in individual and relay events. Our team of Y4 swimmers was exceptionally strong and were decisive winners; they will now go on to represent Eastleigh and District in the Hampshire Games at Aldershot Barracks in June.

Upper School Swimming Team
Six relay teams from the Upper School swim squad also represented school at the Hampshire Schools Championships at Fleet Leisure Centre at the end of February. This is always a very prestigious event with electronic score boards flashing up times in hundredths of seconds and official referees carefully watching every start and take over for illegal moves!

The standard of swimming is incredibly high with State and Private schools from all over Hampshire taking part. Our boys’ team were delighted to take the bronze medal in the 4x25m Medley and our girls’ B team were 2nd in their B freestyle relay and we also had a string of 4th and 5th places which was very pleasing considering the wonderful standard of entry.

We now await to see if any of our times will take us into the South East of England championships at Guildford in May.

Well done to all our teams.
Mrs Cooper

Monday 26th February 2018 – School Closure Procedure

Filed under: Whole School @ 3:24 pm

Dear Parents and Carers

As you may be aware the Met Office have issued a weather warning for snow later this week. If we end up receiving significant snow fall and have to close the school, a message will be placed on the front page of the website and a text sent to all via parent mail. This decision will be made by 7.00am in the morning. Please do not phone the school to check as there will not be anyone to answer the phone.

A full list of all school closures can be found using the following web link.

Thank you for your support and understanding on this matter.

Friday 23rd February 2018 – Bones and muscles in Year 3

Filed under: Science,Year 3 @ 6:37 pm

To start their new Science unit ‘Bones and Muscles’, Year 3 had a visit from a surgeon and nurse today to give them first hand experiences about bones and muscles. Mr Gandhe brought ‘Sue the skeleton’ into school to help the children learnt about the functions of a skeleton and learn some of the names of the bones. They also got to try on some VR goggles to see inside a real theatre and then perform a hip operation using some equipment surgeons use in theatre for operations. Finally, Miss Mrozinski got her arm cast in plaster and the children got to see how it is bandaged to help protect and heal the bone.

In the afternoon, the children used their knowledge from the morning to make their own life-sized skeleton!

Thursday 22nd February – Congratulations, Georgia (Y5)

Filed under: Whole School @ 10:24 am

‘Message from Georgia’s mum)

Last year Georgia started working towards to her Grade 1 violin. She worked really hard and practised nearly every day. During the exam she had to perform pieces, do scales and arpeggios and even play music she’d never seen before.

Georgia was very nervous but tried her best. We were very excited to learn that not only did Georgia pass her exam, but she got a merit which is great news and we’re really proud of the effort that she put in.
Georgia plays with a Young Strings group and has a busy few months coming up. On Saturday night she is performing at Winchester Cathedral and in April she is travelling to London to take part in a concert at The Royal Albert Hall!

You might have noticed something different about Georgia this week… She decided to donate her hair to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes wigs for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy.

It would be great if you could share Georgia’s achievements.

With best wishes,
