What’s been going on at Bushfield School?
So much, we barely have time to tell you!! Here’re the headlines…
Fairtrade Fortnight (22 Feb- 7 March)
The children at Bushfield have been learning about Fairtrade week as part of our whole school assembly. The staff at the school have pledged to drink only Fairtrade tea and coffee in the run up to Easter. The children have been asked to swap something they would normally buy for a Fairtrade alternative, showing our support for the developing world producers. The children will also have the opportunity to buy fruit from ‘Fairtrade Friday Fruit Stop’ on Friday 12th March, when all the fruit being sold will be Fairtrade.
The Bushfield athletics squad have tried out to represent the Radcliffe cluster (five local schools) in the Milton Keynes Athletic event later in the year. Of the 16 children selected to represent our area, 10 of them were Bushfield children: a testament of the hard work and dedication of the children and the sports team at Bushfield.
Year 5 visit to religious buildings in Wolverton
On Thursday the 4th February the children in Year 5 left the school to find out more information about religions in our local community as part of their RE lessons. The children visited the Wolverton Evangelical Church, St Francis de Sale Catholic Church, St Georges Church and the Wolverton Mosque. The children thoroughly enjoyed the day; exploring the buildings and listening to the inspiring faith leaders inform the children about their faith. The day was very successful with the children’s exemplary behaviour being noted by all the people they met.
The Year 5/6 hockey tournament has now started and will continue for the next three weeks on Thursdays after school, we wish all the children well and were impressed by the effort put in by all during the first day. We will hopefully have some match reports to share with you soon.
