Value of the Month

By | All School News

At CBPPS we are constantly looking for ways to help our pupils become effective learners and good citizens. As part of this aim, we introduced ‘Value of the Month’. The ‘Value of the Month’ is announced in a whole school assembly at the start of each month, discussed during PSHE lessons and each class will have the opportunity to choose the next month’s value. We believe that, by embedding these values in our curriculum, we can encourage our pupils to develop the social and relationship skills necessary to succeed.

October’s value of the Month is:

HAPPINESS

Chosen by Reception

‘Happiness is not something ready-made. it comes from our own activities.’ Dalai Lama.

During Circle Time, Reception discussed what makes them happy. Here are some of their thoughts:

I feel happy when I cuddle mummy and see some flowers – Luka Belle

I am happy playing with my friends – Nell

I am happy when I am learning things at school – Nathan

I am happy when I see the teachers – Sadie

I am happy when Theo smiles at me really nicely – Hugo

I feel happy because I saw a brown bear at the zoo – Louis

Sports Day 2015

By | All School News
After some anxious glances at the weather forecast, the sun decided to shine brightly upon us at the annual Chiswick and Bedford Park Sports Day.  A fun-filled, action packed event was had by all starting with the Nursery children and their running and obstacle races.

The day was a great success with a combination of old favourites such as the egg and spoon, sack race and sprints, alongside some newer events which included the tennis ball balance, bean bag relay and the long distance race, over an improved course.

A big thank you must go to all staff and children who contributed to making the day such an enjoyable occasion. The parents should also be praised for such fantastic support and commitment to the cause. They certainly made themselves look very silly and embarrassing when it was their turn to race in the newly designed obstacle course.  You did your children proud!

Money Week 8 – 14 June

By | All School News
Money Week took place on the 8- 14 June. This was a national activity week for primary and secondary schools that provided CBPPS a fantastic opportunity for our children to gain the skills, knowledge and confidence in money matters to thrive in our society.

As well as special visits from parents, we also held workshops about ‘Keeping money safe, needs and wants’ and ‘budgeting, currencies, spending and saving and making money choices’.

A huge thank you and well done to Year 6 who created the most amazing mini fair for the Reception children. Also – well done to Year 2 who raised £21 for a local charity from their very own penny collections!
