Today we learnt that Bridgewater have been awarded the Gold Sports Mark Award which is not given out lightly. Thank you to Miss Baxter, Mrs Bray, Miss Holmes and the team for maintaining a high level of activities and sports. The children have tried and experienced a wide range of competitive and fun sports – there really has been something for everyone.
Goodbye Year 6
Our amazing Year 6 are leaving Bridgewater with a fantastic attitude to their learning which they will take forward to their secondary schools. They demonstrated this last week through their wonderful interpretation of the Lion King but also in the way they have tackled things in tricky times. They showed great resilience and perseverance during lockdown and a fantastic attitude to their disco in very high temperatures. They threw themselves in to it and danced their hearts out thanks to the talented Miss Morley who turned DJ, as well as leading the dancing and the Y6 team led by Mrs Hallett and Mr Lagdon. It is wonderful to watch them grow in confidence and we are all very proud of them, staff past and present wish them well for the future – keep in touch and let us know what you get up to Y6.
It was great to meet two of our local residents this morning who will be volunteering with us next year. Anyone is welcome who has a little spare time to give to come and work with the children, from reading to sewing, sports or gardening etc – all are welcome, after DBS checks of course. We also had some talented ladies who came in and cooked samosas with Y1 yesterday and I believe they are pencilled in next year – delicious!
Thank you, parents and families, for all your support this year with the children’s learning and events like the fantastic Summer Fair and sports days.
School will reopen to most children on Monday 5th September including our New Intake week A and New Intake week B will attend the week beginning 12th September, then all will come in on the 19th September together. New Intake parents, can you pencil in Tuesday 20th in the diary when the Friends will hold a coffee morning for you to get to know everyone if you’re available?
thank you to all the staff and governors for their hard work and commitment this year to making Bridgewater a special place.
