to celebrate Easter with the school community.

I have had lots of lovely messages of praise for
the children and their behaviour. 5SS were stunning

in the race for the title. This month we have had 2 more evenings to complete the league
and we are very proud to announce that BJS came out on top! The team, and the wider
squad, have worked really hard for the title and shown great perseverance and resilience
to come back and top the table.

On the 30th March we had 21 children ranging from year 3 to year 6 competing in the
Rugby schools' annual gala . Some great swimming took place on the night. We had some
amazing feedback from spectators and visiting schools on how professional and well
behaved the team were on pool side . Well done to all of the team!

A special mention to our year 6’s that competed in their last primary schools' gala for BJS as
they are moving on to high school this year. Eden, Charlie, Finlay and Logan have been in
the team since year 3 and every year brought home trophies and medals for our school.
What amazing children. Good luck at high school!

Features Year 5 Visit to talk ‘Bees’ with
The Mayor

On Tuesday 2nd April, Mrs Stevens, Miss Mulvaney and five Year 5 students
(Lowan, Austin, Olivia, Elizabeth and Amelie) were given the opportunity to go to
Rugby Town Council offices and discuss their concerns over the current plight of
Bees. The book ‘Bee and Me’, which was used as an inspirational text during
World Book Week, got the children thinking about what they could do to promote
Bees and other pollinating insects. The children decided to take immediate
action and wrote, on mass, to the Mayor asking him to consider a number of their
suggestions to encourage more bees in to our area. Little did the children know
that Mayor Tom is a bit of a Nature enthusiast and told that the children that
their campaign was “right up my street!”. After having a tour of the Debating
Chamber, where all of the important decisions about Rugby are made, Mayor Tom
took the children into the Mayors Parlour where they ‘got down to business’ and
shared some of their letters and ideas over a biscuit and a drink. All-in-all, a
good meeting was had and plans (BJS Plan BEE!), for us to have a patch of grass
around school on which to sow some wild flower seeds for the bees and other
pollinators, were made. All 105 letters were left with the Mayor to share with the
Head of Rugby Parks and we soon hope to hear when we have the go ahead to get
started on ‘BJS Plan Bee!”. We’ll keep you posted.
