Tesco Donation – Thank you!

Thank you to Tesco Cheetham Hill for your generous donation of £100 to be used to help with some new resources for our Lotus Room. This is very much appreciated! Thank you!

The Lotus Room is a place where children can spend time with a Play Therapist or Therapeutic Support Worker.  Children come for many different reasons.  They might be feeling worried, or sad, maybe scared or angry.  At times children struggle to cope with changes in their life, for example, moving house, new school, family separation etc. 

If you feel you would like your child to access some support  from the Lotus room staff you can pop in to see us and we will arrange a time for you to discuss any concerns you have.  We can also offer advice and support such as parenting advice on things like bedtime routines, setting boundaries, children’s stages of development. 

Y4 gratitude jars

This week, we read our whole-school book, The Invisible by Tom Percival, and discussed the main themes of the text including ‘poverty’ and ‘community’. We then created gratitude jars and filled them with all the things that we are thankful for including family, friends, education and our health. Finally, we had a lot of fun decorating our jars. Well done Year 4 for a great start to the year!

Community Spring Clean

Next week, our children will be taking part in the –

‘Keep Britain Tidy Great British Spring Clean’

This means that children will be collecting litter and clearing our school grounds and also our local area too. Please be assured no litter will be handled by the children, they will have long handled picker sticks and sturdy bin bags.

With this big effort from Bowker Vale, we hope that you will notice a really positive difference and that together we can improve our own grounds and our local community.

Children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will all be cleaning up areas within our school grounds.

Children in Years 3, 4, 5, and 6 will be leaving school on foot to clean up our local area.

There is also a community Spring Clean Event in Blackley Village next Sunday (25 March) at 2pm. Meeting Point is the Old Market Street entrance to Pike Fold Forest (opposite NISA/former Co-op)
