Bildeston Primary Update

We are looking forward to an exciting summer term ahead. We hope that with the Covid restrictions starting to ease, we can start to introduce more events and activities throughout the term.

All of our children will take the opportunity to make good use of our outdoor environment, hopefully with some much warmer weather! The little ones particularly will enjoy a variety of forest schooling activities including; bug hunting and making a log circle to complement our tipis. They will learn to use lots of skills during this time and have lots of fun!

We will also be hosting an overnight camp adventure for our year 5 and 6 pupils from both Bildeston and Whatfield as we have not been able to offer them a residential over the last year They will enjoy two full days of fun activities. There is a huge emphasis on team building and we know that the children will get to know each other well before some of them move on to high school.

We are also delighted to say that our Year 1/2 area will be enhanced over the coming months as many of our current reception and year 1 children have not had a huge amount of time in school because of the lockdowns in place.

We have installed three new picnic benches made of recyclable materials in bright colours for the children to enjoy sitting at and particularly to have their lunch outside.

Let’s hope that the April chills soon move into a bright and sunny summer.

Children in KS2 will kickstart the new term off with history WOW days where the children get the opportunity to come dressed as British monarchs or in Stone Age costume.

Lockdown Bears

All of our children received their very own “Lockdown Bildeston Bear” during the spring term to say thank you for how they all managed the remote learning during lockdowns. We are super proud of them all and what they achieved and of course thrilled to have all of our children back in school.
