Bracken Hill's Got Talent
We had two wonderful acts in this year's Bracken Hill's Got Talent and one of those acts came third! The majority of the class joined in and we could not be more proud of them. So brave to stand up in front of the whole school and perform. A fantastic start to our year!
Welcome to Owls 2018/2019
Hello everybody! My name is Miss Clerkin and I am the new class teacher in Owls. I am so excited to be back after my maternity leave and get to see all the children again. Many of the Owls already know me, and I've been so impressed to see how they have grown and progressed in the past year. Helping us in Owls this year is Mrs Tomlinson, Miss Birch and Mrs Campbell, and we're really lucky to have them. Parents are welcome to come and meet the team on Wednesday 11th July, at 3.45 pm and have a look around our learning environment. Hope to see you there!
Week beginning 11th June
Owls have really enjoyed sports week!
We played lots of different team sports and went to Portland college to take part in wheelchair basket ball and seated volley ball.
On Friday we went on the bouncy castle at school and learnt some Tai Chi.
Everyone tried their hardest and were very tired by the end of the week.
This week owls and foxes went to Kingswood on a 3 day residential. Everyone had a really good time and enjoyed all the different activities.
On Monday we settled into our rooms by making all of the beds and then went to have a go on the low ropes and sing songs around the campfire.
On Tuesday the children took part in laser tag, aero ball and nightline in the morning and in the afternoon had great fun on the zip wire and watching a movie at bedtime.
On Wednesday everyone was really tired from all the different activities but we finished our residential with fencing and crate stacking.
Here are a few photos to show what amazing time we had J
