Friday 4th March we celebrated World Book Day. Students and staff had a fun day dressing up as their favorite characters. Take a look at some of the highlights below:

Break times & lunch times
At Bidbury we insure that it is imperative that all of our children have a range of activities, games and equipment to use at break times and lunch times. We segregate different parts of the playground for different set ups, which makes it fair for all children to have a turn if they wish too.
It’s so lovely to see all the year groups back on the playground together after a year of year group bubbles!
The children thrive building those relationships with different year groups.
Last Day of School
Before the children broke up for the summer holidays, we ensured that we all enjoyed a special treat and ate some Ice cream!
Caravanilla visited us and we were spoilt for choice, with the different flavors of ice cream.
Sports Day 2021
We had such a successful day at Sports Day this year. Despite that we weren't allowed to have any loved ones to come and watch due to the current government restrictions. All the children remained so resilient and positive and ensured that they cheered one another on.
WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU ALL!
❤ To all of our families
We had such an amazing day for our sponsored skip! Who knew skipping for 10 minutes could be so difficult? But all the children (and some staff!) did incredibly well! Thank you for everyone that sponsored a child.
As a school we completed 64,378 skips and raised an amazing £2,168!!
Armistice Day at Bidbury
Today at Bidbury, we took some time out of our busy school day to pause for thought and remember those who lost their lives in the war.
We reflected on why it is so important to pay tribute on November 11th and had discussions about how our lives are different as a result.
We watched an assembly recorded by Max (our local vicar from Bedhampton Church and school governor) and our student leadership team also performed “Flanders Field” to us.
As a school, we were so proud of every single child at Bidbury as they were so respectful during their learning and the two minutes silence.
Please follow the link to see what the children did on the day.
⭐️ Children in Need - Friday 13￼th November ⭐️
As a school, we love raising awareness and money for the ‘BBC Children in Need’ campaign and this year is no different!
We are going to be doing it slightly different and will be having a “Brighten up Bidbury” day. We are asking children, staff and families to wear bright colours, spots or stripes to put a smile on everyone’s faces! We understand that a second lockdown has and will be tough on many of our families and so this year are asking for whatever donation you can make - no matter how big or small. Donations will be dropped into the buckets in the children’s bubbles on Friday and will be counted after the weekend to see what we have raised.
We look forward to seeing a sea of colours and patterns around Bidbury!
#HelloYellow 'young minds' mental health day campaign
On Friday 9th of October it is World Mental Day and here at Bidbury Junior school we are taking part in the campaign #HelloYellow. So on MONDAY 12th OCTOBER we are encouraging children to wear something yellow to school. This can be non-uniform, yellow fancy dress or just a yellow accessory to wear with their school uniform.
A non compulsory small donation of either 50p or a £1 will be collected and go to the 'young minds' charity.
We can't wait to see you fill our school with yellow for such a great cause
ITS TIME FOR INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PHOTOS!
Smiles at the ready!! This Friday, 9th October is individual school photos day.
Siblings can have a photo together, this will be arranged by the year team to ensure our year group bubbles are kept safe. The sibling option is for Bidbury Junior school pupils only.
We appreciate your support with this
⭐️JOIN IN WITH WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK⭐️
As part of walk to school week, we are pushing the insentive for children to be active and walk to school (if possible) for one week. The children will be able to claim a certificate at the end of the week to say that they have walked everyday.
LETS DO THIS! 👍
Free app resource for children
⭐️Nessy is a great app that offers help with children who are dyslexic or struggling with spelling.⭐️
This is also a resource we can use in school to help the children.
⭐️This month they are offering a FREE download in awarness of Dyslexia month, so make sure you get yours! ⭐️
⭐️All year groups at Bidbury Junior School will have the opportunity across their academic year to complete different tasks in order to graduate from Bidbury University.⭐️
We understand that some of these tasks can not be completed in these current circumstances and restrictions, so we will ensure that we alter them accordingly.
Some of the tasks are to do with learning, but some of them are fun things that we feel all of the children should have the opportunity to do.
By the end of Year 6, every child at Bidbury Junior School would have taken part in a wide variety of activities.✅...
We have implemented a new certificate to encourage the children to complete the different tasks.
Talk about your childs year group challenges with them!😀
