The children at BRW have continued to imagine, invent and inspire throughout the spring term. They have shown true determination and enthusiasm in all that they do and I continue to be inspired by them all.
World Book Day was a huge success where the children’s love of literature shone through as they enjoyed spending the day involved in various reading-related activities whilst dressed up as book characters or in their pyjamas.
The children in Years 4, 5 and 6 showcased their marvellous musical talents this term at the BRW Musical Evening. The children involved, demonstrated their learning in music and their musical talents. We had the pleasure of listening to a recorder soloist, brass brilliance, dramatic class performances from Years 4 and 5, a beautiful violin ensemble, guitarists galore, the wonderful woodwind troop, the school choir, the Talent Show winner and BRW’s very own school band! It was a fabulous evening and we couldn’t be more proud of the children and their talents.
One of the definite highlights to my week is a Friday morning where I look forward to meeting with all the children to celebrate their achievements and successes in our weekly Celebrate Assembly. The children burst with pride as they share the work they have been nominated for. It has also been fantastic to see how well the ‘Creation Station’ has taken off this year with children taking it home to use to invent different creative art pieces. It has been a pleasure to share this work in Celebrate Assembly this term. Take a look at the WOW board in the school hall for some highlights and prepare to be impressed, amazed and inspired by the children’s artistic designs.
I have to say that the BRW sports teams and competitors are a credit to our school. The Basket Ball team have had a particularly successful spring term and have gone from strength to strength. Not only have they achieved highly in their regular fixtures with Jimmy ‘Jump Shot’ Smith, but this term culminated in a record breaking third place at the local Rushcliffe Basket Ball County finals. Well done to all the team, Coach Catterall and our parent helpers for their never- ending support and enthusiasm.
We ended the term with our Holy Week presentations from Years 4, 5 and 6. These depictions enabled us to reflect on this important season of Lent and Jesus’ last hours on earth. Through their dramatisations of Jesus’ Entry into Jerusalem, The Last Supper and The Crucifixion, all children taking part, demonstrated tremendous passion and energy in their performances. They sang beautifully and brought these important stories to life. They paved the way beautifully for the last of these presentations on the first day back after half term – The Resurrection.
I hope that you have a restful and relaxing Easter break and look forward to seeing you all at the start of the Summer term to continue our exciting journey.
