The school celebrates 300 years of service to its community!
300 YEAR TERCENTARY CELEBRATIONS
What a great day was had by all on Friday 15th June 2018. It all started with a visit from some very important people including the Bishop of Worcester, who came in to have a look around our school and bless our new ‘Garden of Reflection’ and Catherine Driscoll the Director for Education for WCC. We all then headed down to Church for a very special service. It was then back to school for a family celebratory picnic where there was plenty of food including a magnificent cake kindly donated by Class Catering along with lots of other goodies supplied by parents. Trees were planted by Derrick Grainger, (former Head Teacher), Father Matthew & Councillor Adrian Hardman. We would like to take this opportunity of thanking everyone who came, donated a cake, helped set up and clear away. Special thanks to Mrs Wilding for her artistic flair in decorating the field and around school. We had lots of comments about how festive and beautiful school looked and how well behaved our children were. Thank you to Mrs Bolem-Edwards for making her ‘Bishop Bear’ which was presented to Bishop John on the day and to Mrs Holliday for her piloting skills in producing a spectacular aerial photo of the school. Special note also to Wendy Stafford for making our beautiful stained glass window with some designing help from our children. Now please enjoy the plethora of photos kindly taken by Meg Hanlon.
Take Over Day 2018
The children in Class 5, once again, took over the school to great affect this half term. The children wrote letters of application for a range of jobs around the school, edited all their own work and finally took part in interviews for all the key positions.
On Thursday the class then took on these roles and held an assembly, taught a range of lessons from Reception to Year 4 (that they wrote and resources themselves), and took part in a staff meeting! The children learnt a great deal from the day, and maybe realised how hard it is to work in a school!
Internet Safety Day 2018
This half term we celebrated Internet Safety Day. All the children took part in activities across the school including a whole school assembly and seperate KS1 and KS2 lessons. The children all learnt a great deal about staying safe online and we look forward to displaying our new E Safety posters around school. For more information on e safety have a look at www.thinkuknow.co.uk or www.childnet.com.
Commando Day 2018
During the Spring Term the children enjoyed taking part in Commando Day. The children from Key Stage Two took part in observation activities, assault courses and team tasks. It was a fantastic day, and one we will look to repeat in the future! Enjoy the photos!
Parliament Week 2017
This has been our first week taking part in Parliament Week. All the children around the school have learnt about the Houses of Parliament and taken part in many different debates. It has been great fun and has taught the children all about democracy and its role in our community.
Anti Bullying Week 2017
This week we have enjoyed a very educational and fun series of drama workshops. Mrs Hastings taught us about our feelings and some strategies to help us in the playground in many different situations. What a great experience during one of our most important weeks of the year.
Children in Need 2017
What a great time we have had this year. We all enjoyed a day in our pyjamas and loved eating some of the delicious cake. Thank you to everyone for supporting this hugely important charity! We will let you know how much we have raised when we have counted all of our pennies!
Last week all the children in the school were visited by Julie and Jen, our local PCSO's, who visit us regularly to share important messages with us all from the police. This visit, Jen and Julie, focused on how to stay safe during Bonfire Night and Halloween. We learnt lots of important rules on staying safe and most importantly how to have fun! We look forward to seeing them both again in January!
As a school we took part in a huge range of events this year. We learnt some new hip hop moves, a few fencing skills and took part in a plyometrics class; which was a really good work out! We enjoy being active and certainly found some new fun ways to do this. We also raised lots of money for Cancer Research by running our race for life where collectively we ran a really long way.
We also took part in lots of house events and a there was a great deal of sportsmanship shown throughout the week, including during sports day itself.
Den Day 2017
This year we all took part in Den Day for the second time. It was a fantastic opportunity for children to work collaboratively across the year groups and support each other in learning about how some children live around the world. The children were very creative in their constructions and everyone loved the day!
Thank you to everyone for all the kind donations of materials and to all who helped recycle them all at the end of the day!
The children in KS2 performed a wonderful series of play performances over the latter stages of the Easter term. All the children in the key stage were involved as either actors, singers, dancers, stage hands, musicians and even sound and lighting technicians. In total four sold out performances were held in front of parents, extended family, the rest of the school and members of the local community including two play groups. It was a play never to forget and the staff were extremely proud of our very talented KS2 children, well done all!
This half term Year 5 took over the school on Friday 10th February 2017. The children took on all the roles the teachers and adults perform in school. The children enjoyed carrying out assemblies, learning walks, writing reports, teaching lessons and then the marking! The whole school enjoyed the day and I know the children in Year 5 learnt a great deal about researching for jobs, applying for them, interviewing for the role and then carrying the role out! What a great day!
Chinese New Year 2017
The children had a wonderful time during Chinese New Year. The day started with an assembly from Mrs Millar where the children told the story of how the Chinese New Year began! Masks and a lot of fun was all involved!
In class the children made Chinese Kites, that I am sure they have enjoyed flying at home! The children were able to decorate them with patterns and characters from the Chinese New Year. All the children enjoyed a Chinese New Year meal in school on Thursday. What a fantastic day!
Stupendous science week
The children have had a fantastic week learning about 'change'. Class 3 & 4 looked at insulators, discovering which materials affect the melting times of ice cubes. They also got into a 'sticky situation' with marshmallow and spaghetti bridge building.
We saw amazing collaboration by Year 2 and Year 5 children during their pirate / space mashup. The children had to design and create a pirate ship that could transport a meteor. They learnt tonnes of information about floating, sinking and water resistance. Year 1 also investigated water with their 'Float a Frog' challenge. Some of the boats even managed to hold 50 frogs above the water!!!
Wow! What a wonderful group of budding scientists we have in Reception. They were so excited about their ice topic that loads of them went home to investigate what happens when you put fruit and vegetables in the freezer. The children loved studying the ice but recommend that you don't put your fresh strawberries or bananas in the freezer. Yuck!!!
Early this term Year 4 and 5 went to the magnificent library 'The Hive' in Worcester city centre. The children learnt about how books are dealt with in the library,how we can borrow them and the many services the library has to offer. All the children became members of the library in Worcester, received a card and were able to borrow a book too! A great trip and a wonderful experience for all the children!
The children in school have all enjoyed a fantastic time during this festive period. They have all made a 'Christingle', created their own party hats, KS1 and KS2 Christmas Discos, enjoyed a festive meal and took part in a wonderful 'Christmas Jumper Day'. The children also had a surprise visit from Father Christmas himself and Key Stage One performed a wonderful Nativity service in church. What a great end to the calendar year!
This term we have welcomed back Sarah and her iSing POP team to school. She helped all the children and staff create a wonderful pair of performances in church that I am sure you all enjoyed as much as we did in school. What a wonderful treat this close to Christmas! Thank you all for your support!
During the early part of December Ms Jane Finch came into school to remind the children in Year 4 and 5 all about E-Safety. In a practical and clever way the children were reminded about the dangers of the internet and how to be great Digital Citizens!
The school were all reminded of the sacrifices many of our ancestors have made during the past World Wars. The children in Class 5 created a poignant assembly to explain the meaning of the day to all the children, staff and Class 5 parents. They then went around the school and helped the other classes take part in a minutes silence. Thanks you for all your support in purchasing poppies in support of the Royal British Legion.
During this term the children enjoyed 'Diwali Day' as part of our 'Interfaith Week'. The children all loved a visit from an Indian Dance specialist and took part in creating and performing their own dance for Diwali! What a fantastic experience for us all!
The children had a great day today in their pyjamas and so did the staff! The children enjoyed buying their cakes at morning play and loved eating them during playtime. Due the huge generosity of our parents the cake sale went on after school as well! All the money raised will go to the wonderful Children's In Need charity! We will let you know the full total as soon as possible! Thank you for all your support!
During November some of the children from Year 3, 4 and 5 took part in a cluster football competition over at Evesham United Football Club. The children were a real credit to the school and played good football coupled with excellent sportsmanship. Our Year 4 and 5 A team finished mid table in their league whilst our Year 3 and 4 team reached the final, narrowly missing out on winning the league in a penalty shoot out! A huge congratulations to all the children who took part and we now cannot wait till next year! Thanks to Mr Hayhoe, Mr Barton and Mr Dennis and all the parents for the support!
This term the children have taken part in our second Bedtime Stories event. The children shared stories read by both teachers and Governors and enjoyed eating a special bedtime treat of toast and hot chocolate! Many thanks to all the parents who supported the event and buttered many pieces of bread!
Wow! What a fantastic week. The children have taken part in a range of activities, including rocket ball, karate and circuits. We also had sports day where all the children raced brilliantly and supported their teams enthusiastically. A big thank you to 'Friends of Bredon Hancocks' for organising the events after the races and thank you to the families for supporting them.
We had fantastic sportsmanship in all of the house netball, football and kickball games and some fantastic sports skills too. Well done to the winning houses of each event.
Netball and Football matches against other schools.
Whole School Queen's Birthday Party June 2016

Den Day 2016
What a fantastic day we have had today with our celebration of Den Day. The children have all collected, used and recycled a huge amount of resources to make Den Day a great success. The children worked in mixed aged groups to create some wonderful dens whilst having so much fun! We also made a great deal of money for 'Save the Children'. Well done everyone!
Queen's Birthday Party Key Stage One
The children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 all enjoyed a wonderful party for the Queen's birthday.

Market Street ended a great Eco Week this year this Friday where the children and staff all enjoyed sampling a variety of Eco friendly made food. We all enjoyed jellies, smoothies, biscuits and crisps. We also even sampled chocolate flavoured crickets! Thanks you to all the visitors and families who attended!
World Book Day and Art Week 2016
This week has been an amazing week in school. We have had a great dressing up day for World Book Day and there were some amazing costumes this year. We have also enjoyed working with Elmley Castle on many different art forms to create a joint 'Gruffalo Book', simply brilliant!
This week we have been joined by our visitors from Tanzania. We have all had a really enjoyable week showing how our school here in Bredon welcomes visitors. We have had the opportunity to display all the brilliant experiences our school children have in school and our visitor was very impressed. Well done one and all!
The children in Year 5 have been to Malvern Outdoor Centre this week. They have experienced climbing balance poles, orienteering, rock climbing, archery and even made their own beds and sandwiches! Miss Pugh, Mr Dennis and Miss Greenwood were all very proud of the children and we are all ready for a rest!
Take Over Day 2016
This week the children in Year 5 have worked on taking over the school. We have had children become Headteachers, Deputy Heads, Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Admin Staff. The children had a great day, kept all the staff on their toes and have had a glimpse of life at work.
Thank you to everyone who came to Bedtime Stories event. It was great fun and we hope to do another one in the future. We raised lots of money for our Tanzanian link through enjoying some favourite stories of the staff and governors.
