Weekly Update 11th November

Remembrance Day

We observed a two minute silence in school on Friday for Remembrance Day. We also had an assembly to understand why we hold a remembrance day every year. We were sadly unable to obtain poppies for the children to purchase, but despite this many children have been wearing poppies to school. Our Remembrance Day Resources are under 'Learning Links' on the website, if you would like to find out more.


Parents Evenings

We had a great turn out for Parents' evenings where many of you were able to meet and discuss your child's learning with their class teacher. Thank you so much for the support you are giving your children at home. The school is full of happy curious children, who love learning, so thank you.



Despite many pleas from myself, parents are continuing to park in an unsafe way on the zig zags. When I was outside asking people to move on this week, many parents shared their views on the parents who refused to move their car. Before there is a serious accident outside our school, please do not park on the zig zags that have been put there for the children's safety in the morning and evening.


Healthy Heart and Mind

At Bishops Waltham Infant School we are passionate about our children, families and staff’s mental health, physical health and wellbeing. We often get asked how to get help or where to find support. This week we were sent a link to a national sleep support service that is completely free to parents. All links to support available that we become aware of, or good initiatives that we think may be useful for our whole school community, we create links to in our ‘Healthy  Heart and Mind’ page, on our website. Please follow the link to find out more.


Year 1 and 2 had a fantastic time at the disco last night, where Crazy M hosted games and dancing. Thank you to all PTA helpers who stayed to help, and also all our teachers who stayed to have a boogie and help too. We were all a bit tired out after, with ‘CHOCOLATE’ ringing in our ears! Hopefully everyone slept well last night- what a way to end our week!


As I write this, our Red Roses Rugby Team are battling for the Rugby World Cup against New Zealand. It is a closely 

matched game! Come on Red Roses! You can do it! 


Have a great weekend everyone


Best Wishes
