World Book Day

By | All School News

All staff and pupils enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters. A great deal of effort had been put into the creation of the costumes and the pupils looked amazing! Pupils were lucky to have each classroom teacher in the school come in and read them a special book.
Lou Quenzler came to school earlier in the week to talk to the pupils about what inspires her writing. She also read passages from a few of her books, which we all enjoyed.

Thank you to all who made World Book Day a success!

BBC Scientific Terrific

In science we have joined the BBC ‘Scientific Terrific’ Scheme. Each month Year 5 and 6 will have the opportunity to take part in an investigation followed by a live lesson streamed into the classroom. This scheme encourages the pupils’ enthusiasm and interest in science by encouraging fun, hands-on activities whilst developing their investigative skills.

This month we covered the theme ‘TASTE’ and counted our ‘Fungiform Papillae’ (taste buds!).

Are you a non-taster, taster or supertaster?

Safer Internet Day 2017

By | All School News

Safer Internet Day is a global initiative that encourages safe internet use as well as highlighting online safety issues.

It is an annual event that takes place at the beginning of February. This year it is on Tuesday 7 February.

At CBPPS we want to make the most of this opportunity to promote the importance of good online conduct to children as well as reminding them what a fantastic resource the internet is when used well.

Here’s a brief outline of what to expect and how everyone can get involved.

Unite for a better internet: be the change

This year’s theme draws on how people interact with one another online, and the positive outcome in collectively calling for a ‘better’ internet.

This in itself is an excellent opportunity to discuss with your child what their favourite things about the internet are. Why not ask them to share some online safety tips with you? They have all been busy in school discussing how to stay safe online. This could be helpful for you to find out what knowledge they’re confident in implementing online and the areas they may need extra support with.

The Safer Internet Centre has created a wealth of resources to help you promote and celebrate the event far and wide, so it’s worth taking a look at these.

Overall, embracing Safer Internet Day allows you to be involved in your child’s online world in a positive and exciting way. Happy celebrating!

*Our school’s E-Safety Policy is available for you to read in the Policies section on our website.


Forms 4-6 Cross Country Competition – @ Barn Elms

By | All School News

Forms 4, 5 and 6 were all represented in the annual St James Inter Schools Cross Country Competition on 24 January.

Ten schools entered the competition with six girls selected from each year group. The Form 4 team had to run the 1km course. Forms 5 and 6 had the longer distance of 1.5km. This was the second year that our school has taken part and the girls thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The highlight of the afternoon was a fantastic second placed finish from Amelia from Form 5. With over 40 children in her race this was an exceptional achievement. The Form 4 team ran very well and had three girls finish in top 20, a very solid team effort in their first cross country competition. Form 6 excelled and managed three top ten finishes which they deserve huge credit for. These impressive final positions meant the team finished in second place overall which the girls should be very proud of.

Well done to all the competitors, a great afternoon of running in perfect conditions. We are already looking forward to coming back next year!
