Radio 2 Big Bee Challenge

Radio 2 recently launched their Big Bee Challenge, encouraging children between the ages of 6 and 12 to design a bee friendly garden for a NHS site, where it will be used by children and young adults with mental health issues. The winning entry will see their garden built by RHS experts. We had lots of entries from eligible children across all of our Prep classes, and these have been sent off for judging – fingers crossed some might be successful. We thought you might like to see some of these designs which we think are fabulous!

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside…

Prep I and II enjoyed a fantastic day at the beach on Tuesday 6th July. We arrived prepared for a wet day, armed with our waterproofs but the rain held off and the sun even made an appearance.

The children had a great day building sandcastles, digging holes, searching for shells and running down the sand dunes. After our picnic on the beach we had a play in the park and then a ride on the miniature railway…..the screams through the tunnel could be heard for miles.

The day was finished off with an ice cream treat……what a great way to end this challenging year. The joy on the children’s faces will last in memory!

Junior Maths Challenge

Some pupils from Prep V and VI entered the Junior Maths Challenge in April. This is a 60-minute, multiple-choice Challenge. It encourages mathematical reasoning, precision of thought, and fluency in using basic mathematical techniques to solve interesting problems.

The children did remarkably well in what was a difficult but fun challenge and all those who took part have received a certificate. Well done to Prep VI’s Mason and Nathan who were awarded with a Bronze certificate and achieved the highest scores.

Bridgewater Sports Day 1 Rain 0

After our Olympic exertions on Monday, today saw KS1 and KS2 children take part in our Sports Day activities. Mr. Altdorf had made careful contingencies to allow for the inclement weather promised, but as it turned out the rain stayed away and everyone got out onto the field to compete. From traditional 60m, 200m and 600m races, the shot putt, javelin, and cricket and rounders ball throws, to the bean bag balancing, egg and spoon and hoop race, there was something for everyone. Full results will be posted once Mr. Altdorf has sorted out his abacus, but in the meantime, enjoy these pictures of what was a super day.

The Olympics Spirit Comes to Bridgewater

Prep I-VI had a fantastic day participating in an action packed activity day based on the Olympic Games. The day was organised in conjunction with a local Manchester based company LSC. Children took part in sit-down volleyball, dodgeball, archery, making Olympic flames and learning about the history of the Olympic Games. You can see that we all had a fun and educational day, learning new skills and demonstrating how to use the Olympic Values: determination, equality, inspiration, respect, excellence, friendship and courage.
