Fabulous week in school this week! I
Online Payment think I may need to start finding a few
System Coming Soon more adjectives to describe
to school—see page school...inspiring, thought provoking,
stimulating, stirring....It has been great to see children involved in 'Inspiring Maths Week'. I love the
2 for more details idea that Maths is for all of us. I know that in the past and certainly as a child, I would have always
said English was my 'thing'. Not so now, I realise the importance of not pigeon holing myself. I am
willing to give anything my best shot and so are our learners here at BJS.

Priya T said, 'I enjoyed our Maths, because we have learned
different things. We watched short video clips which had
important messages like- We all can learn Maths and mistakes
help us to learn. Self belief is really important and so is having a
growth mind set!'

Gene F said, 'The video clips encouraged me and the questions have made me think
hard. I feel better at Maths.'

Amelie B said, 'Inspire Maths week has helped me understand
that Maths is fun.'

Lily C said, Everyone can do Maths. It's ok to take your time to think things through!'

Thanks to all the parents who came in to school for the PGL meeting on Wednesday to find out about
PGL in Yr 5. I know some of you are thinking the meeting is slightly early but we have decided to do
the trip earlier in Yr5 to help children bond with their new teacher and each other. We will be heading
off in October. If you missed the meeting please check the website for details. Letters will be coming
out soon, so keep a look out please.

Have a good weekend, lots more fun next week…

Closure of School in bad weather

The next parent I think the weather is set to get colder. If I do have to close the school over the coming

Online Payments

Exciting times ahead for finance and the way you can make
payments to school, we are moving into the 21st century!
Within the next week you will receive an information pack
with your unique details to register for the online payment
system, we ask that you register before the 7th February

We will then role the system out in 2 phases:

1) After February half term the system will be live for you to
be able to pay for school dinners in the 1st instance.

2) After Easter we then hope to have changed some internal
processes for you to be able to pay for school trips, resources,
donations etc.

We hope you will support this exciting move forward.

Thank you
