Community Events

 

We try to involve our community in our learning as much as possible and enjoy every opportunity we can to get people in or get out and about! Exciting learning experiences have included those items below but there are many other events that have taken place too.

We take our children on trips to places of worship from a variety of religions and welcome visitors in to share their cultural differences and similarities with us.

We have organised many events at Bredon Playing Fields and work hard to promote the link between our children and facilities in the village. We have great plans to work again with our community and we are starting to rebuild links. 

If you have a community event or activity that you would like to promote, please contact the school and we would be happy to help advertise it through our school website. Please see below some of the community activities that have taken place!

Harvest Festival, 5th October 2023

 

It is my privilege to work with wonderful staff, children and families . The children have been very industrious in school and have produced excellent work in a range of subjects. The Year 5 children lead the service, in St Giles Church, with clear articulation and pride.

Families generously donated and Ken explained that these donations are absolutely vital to give everyone a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food. The Year 5 pupils packed up the trays with Ken from the food bank and he was sincerely thankful for everyone's goodwill and support.

World Book Day, 2nd March 2023

 

On Thursday 2nd March, we celebrated World Book Day. It was fantastic to see such a wide range of costumes and books that the children wanted to share. During the day, each class focused on a text by Oliver Jeffers and had the opportunity to take part in different activities including: writing postcards, creating an alphabet book and analysing images related to the text. The children were invited to take part in a competition to design a book character using an egg or a potato. We were absolutely blown away by the creativity and the effort showcased. The KS2 School Council deliberated to identify the winners from each class. Congratulations to everyone that took part.

Bikeability, Week beginning 27th February, 2023 

 

Bikeability is promoted and supported by the Department of Transport and is designed to give the next generation the skills and confidence to ride their bikes on today's roads. Our Year 5 pupils spend the first two days working on Level 1. It helps the pupils gain confidence and skills in riding their bikes in the playground and gets them ready for cycling on the road. 

Our pupils then progress onto level 2 training, which is undertaken on the quiet local roads around Bredon. Our pupils were encouraged and inspired to achieve these levels, recognising that there is always more to learn and enjoy!

Rugby Festival, 8th February 2023

 

On Wednesday 8th February, nine Year 4 children and nine Year 5 children represented the school in a tag rugby tournament at Bredon Hill Academy. Both teams played well and demonstrated the School Games values. Both teams came home as winners of their age groups and joint winners of the tournament. We are so proud of them and their team spirit. They were all true ambassadors for our school.

Number Day, February 3rd 2023

 

During the day, the children were celebrating their love of numbers with a wide range of engaging and exciting number activities! All of the activities were linked to a story book. The activities were in support of the NSPCC Number day, which is an event organised by the NSPCC to raise money. As part of their Number Day activities, children in KS2 took part in the NSPCC Rocks event, where they had to use the Times Table Rockstars website to answer a wide range of multiplication and division questions in order to win points for our school.

 

After school we held a successful Number Fair. A huge thank you to Mrs. Bulman and Class 5 for organising this event. We raised a whooping £205. Well done to everyone that stayed late on a Friday afternoon and took part in a range of fun and games. Thank you very much to all of the Year 5 parents that donated cakes.

Story Telling Week, January 30th - February 3rd 2023

This year's Story Telling Week coincided with Number Day. As a school, we decided to combine both events. Throughout the week, the children were exposed to a number of different texts before the children completed lessons based on their chosen texts including 'How Many Jelly Beans?' and '365 Penguins'.

St Giles Church Visit, 26th January 2023

 

Our Year 2 pupils spent a lovely morning exploring our local church. They found out all about the features of a church and looked at the intricate details of the decorations. Mr. Whitehead, our Chair of Governors, gave the pupils a tour of the church and explained how the features are used in the service. 

Corinium Museum, 26th January 2023

 

Corinium Museum has arguably the finest and most extensive Romano-British collection relating to a town and its hinterland in the world. Our Year 4 pupils, explored Roman life through a series of activities. They were hands-on with mosaic making, played Roman games, discovered food, pottery and even dressed up in Roman clothing. It was a great way to bring Roman Britain to life in a practical way. 

Young Voices, 12th January 2023

 

We took part in the largest children’s choir concert in the world! Young Voices was created for the primary purpose of advancing the education of children by developing their skills and understanding of music and singing. We travelled to Resorts World, Birmingham. The children were amazing and really made all of the staff feel extremely proud of them.

"I loved Heather Small, we sang with her!"

"We were part of this huge choir, it was awesome!"
