brighstoneprimary The Buzz

Dear Parents/Carers,

What another busy week we have had here at Brighstone. I had the pleasure of sharing in the Y6 children’s enthusiasm whilst they were designing and making their own musical instruments from recyclable materials earlier this week. Their perseverance and creativity shone through.

In Y1 and Y2 the children have been bringing in old toys from home belonging to parents and grandparents. They have thoroughly enjoyed sharing these with everyone and they are looking forward to holding their class museum in the final week of term. Watch this space for further details.

Next week is Place2Be’s Children’s Mental Health Week. To tie in with our current whole school collective worship focus of Perseverance, we will be exploring what it means to take on a personal challenge and how children can ‘Find their BRAVE’. More information below.

Some people may have noticed exciting changes to our school library. We are in the process of refreshing the books and environment. We would like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Boyd and Mrs Snow for going above and beyond to create a warm and welcoming place to enjoy their reading and learning. Also, we’d like to thank everyone who has supported us by purchasing second hand books. So far we have raised a magnificent £64.78. The final sale will be on Friday 7th February at 2.45pm. All proceeds will go towards new books for the children.

Please note that while Mrs Fox is not at school, I am the point of contact for all enquiries.

I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. See you all next week!

Mrs Lennon – Assistant Head Teacher
