Summer Activities 2020

Dear Parents,

Please find on this Prep Blog page a plethora of learning and fun activities which will help keep our pupils prepared for a return to full time education in September. As well as  academic challenges there are fun challenges which will pull your child away from the screen to do some more traditional activities which are good for the mind and soul as well as the body.

My Summer Holiday Activity Diary

In addition to these activities your class teacher would like each pupil to please continue with Reading Eggs and TT Rockstars (Prep 2 up).  Mrs. Davies has included a learning pack included on the Prep 1 Google classroom.

Children can also continue to access work on the Home Learning Support Materials page (also on the Blog ) which are class specific.

Please enjoy your summer and make sure that you come back to school with tales of adventures and fun!

Bridgewater Virtual Sports Day 2020

Congratulations to the Blue House who are the first ever winners of the Bridgewater Prep Virtual Sports Day. After two days of competition this week, of activities designed to do at home or in school, it resulted in a resounding win for the Blue House. EYFS children competed for points in the hurdles, book balance, speed bounce, sock putt and the sock and spoon race. Yes, that’s the sock putt and not a spelling error!

Meanwhile, Prep I-VI were set similar challenges as EYFS, but also included a 1km run, standing long and triple jumps, the tennis ball throw and the alternate hand ball toss. We are delighted that along with the 30 children who participated in the Sports Days in school, that another 92 of you joined in at home! The photos and videos you send us are amazing and you can see a selection below on the blog, but also on Twitter and the Bridgewater Facebook page.

Thank you to everyone who helped to make this such a fun and worthwhile event and we would like to wish you all a safe and wonderful summer. We hope to see you all in September, when we may also complete our more traditional Sports Day!

Moving On Assembly Picture Slide Show for Prep VI

This morning, Prep VI enjoyed their final assembly of the year – under slightly unusual circumstances, as it was all via Zoom.  Despite that, it was lovely to see everyone and, as is traditional, there were still a few tears as we shared our Moving On video.  We hope you enjoy it too!
