Today was the last day of primary school for our year 6 children. It was a day of sadness but it was also full of happiness as we reminisced over their memories at Bishop Henderson. It has been an absolute pleasure for us all to teach these incredible children. We wish them all the best for their adventures onto secondary school and are so proud of everything they have achieved!

We sadly said goodbye this week to some amazing and brilliant staff members. As a school we said farewell to them in a leavers assembly and presented them with some lovely gifts from the staff and all classes. We thank them for everything they have done for our school and we have had some amazing memories with each and every one of them. We wish them all the best for their next adventures!
Congratulations to these children for receiving the 100% attendance and govenors awards!
The water pistols were out this afternoon for Green House to celebrate them collecting the most house points this year!
The year 6 children had a turn too as a special leavers treat.
The water pistols also appeared at break time for the whole school to enjoy!
The children enjoyed showing their loved ones all of their work from the year and singing to them!

Clarissa presented our year 3 children today with their very own bible. They were also presented to children who joined our school from year 3 onwards. The children were very excited to receive these from the church and enjoyed looking through their bibles when they went back to their classes.

KS2 ROMAN BATTLE
Today the Key Stage 2 classes took part in a Roman battle! Over the past week, the children have been designing and creating their shields so that they had their armour ready for battle. The children started by marching like true Roman soldiers and had to listen to Roman commands led by Mr Lane. The Owls and Robins came out to see what their shields looked like and they were also able to watch some of the formations. Then the soldiers were under attack! They had to create formations to protect themselves. They did very well and all worked as a team with their house colours. At the end, the soldiers were victorious and defeated the teachers!
Today we sadly said farewell to Mrs O’Donnell on her last day with us. Mrs O’Donnell has taught most of the children in our school when they were in our Puffins nursery and has worked with us for 5 and a half years. So as a school, we hosted an assembly to say thank you to her for everything and each class made her some wonderful cards. We wish Mrs O’Donnell all the best for her future and will miss seeing her warm smile!
