 Summer Term 2020-2021

Prep Olympic Day on Monday 5th June – email sent 25.6.2021

On Monday 5th July, all Prep I-VI children will be participating in an Olympic Day to celebrate the forthcoming games in Tokyo and to raise awareness of the importance of the Olympics for our pupils. The day will be hosted by a coaching company The Little Sports Company who will be in school to deliver a programme of events with an Olympic theme.  COVID-19 precautions will be followed at all times.

The activities will all take place at Bridgewater School and will include Olympic sporting events such as archery and hockey as well as arts and crafts and a session on the history of the Olympic Games. The cost of the day will be £5 per person and we would appreciate it if you could log into ParentPay to make the necessary payment before Friday 2nd July.

Along with our traditional Sports Days during the final week of the term, we feel that this is a fitting way to engage our children in supporting the Youth Sports Trust in its ‘Back Together’ campaign, a drive to celebrate the return of sport to schools around the country.

If you have any questions about the day, please contact myself via email on altdorfi@bwslive.co.uk .

Thank you for your continued support.

Royal Mail ‘Heroes’ Stamp Design Competition – email sent 6.5.2021

I will be using my assembly to discuss the heroes of the COVID 19 pandemic. Your child will then be invited to enter the Heroes Stamp Design Competition on behalf of Bridgewater School Prep.  The competition is a challenge to design a stamp that will honour the heroes of the recent pandemic. These heroes could be NHS workers, delivery drivers, teaching staff, supermarket workers, public transport workers vaccine scientists, emergency services, military, volunteers or cleaners. The list is endless of people that have contributed to the fight against COVID 19.

Your child’s class teacher will send the entry form home as extra homework or use an art lesson to do the design. If the form does come home I would be grateful if you could please fill in the details at the top including the school postcode which is M28 2WQ.
