Year 5 had a fantastic opportunity to find out more about our solar system when the Explorer Space Dome company visited BPS. The space show was mesmerising and it was a wonderful opportunity for the children to quiz the experts. Thank you to all the Y5 parents for supporting this experience.

Celebrate reading at our Book Fair!

We are delighted to welcome back the Scholastic book fair this year. Last year, the fair generated ยฃ1000 for
new books! This event not only engages children in reading but also raises funds for new books across the
school.
The Book Fair will be arriving in school soon, with hundreds of new childrenโ€™s books to browse and buy.

Come and join us!
Thursday 1st February - 3:30pm โ€“ 4:00m
Friday 2nd February โ€“ 8:15 โ€“ 8:55am and 3:30pm โ€“ 4:00pm
Monday 5th February - 3:30pm โ€“ 4:00pm
Tuesday 6th February - 3:30pm โ€“ 4:00pm
Location: KS1 hall (Friday 3rd 3:30-4:00pm - KS1 courtyard)

To run this event, we need volunteers, if you are able to help out for an hour after school, please email the

school office for the attention of Mrs Brookes.

There are over 200 titles for you and your child to choose from, and with prices starting from only ยฃ2.99,
thereโ€™s sure to be a book for everyone.
If you canโ€™t make it to our Book Fair, try our Gift Vouchers available at https://bookfairs.scholastic.co.uk/gift-
vouchers. Theyโ€™re a great way to ensure your child doesnโ€™t miss out. All children will have chance to browse
the book fair during the school day. Please see the poster below for details on payment of books.
We will also be running a competition to win book vouchers for the books fair. We are asking children to draw
and colour their favourite book cover. All entries need to be in by Friday 26th January. We will be sharing more
information with the children in class. We look forward to seeing all the wonderful entries.

Donโ€™t forget that every book you buy can help to get FREE BOOKS for our school library!

At BPS we are always keen to share festivals and celebrations that are important to our school community.

Chinese New Year is fast approaching us. If you celebrate this event, and would be willing to share what you do as a family or with friends, we would love to invite you to school to share this with our children. This could be an assembly large or small, a talk to a class or simply sharing photos and real life objects that teachers could then share with the children.

If this is something you are interested in supporting us with, please email the school office

Year 5 and Year 6 had the opportunity to attend STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) workshops. The workshops were run by a team from the Ministry of Defence in order to encourage primary school age children to consider careers within the UK's STEM industry.
