BJS Bulletin


Plantagenet Drive, Rugby, CV22 6LB 15TH MARCH 2019

encourage reading in school and give it a great
prominence in the curriculum. I know many parents also are avid readers and often

Thank you to you all for the money sent in to fundraise for more
books for school. We have found a matchfunding site/company
who will help us get double the amount of reading material for our
money. I hope you enjoy some of the photographs of our amazing

weeks :-)

BRITISH SCIENCE WEEK was also celebrated this week. Ms.Davies and Mrs
Harlock began the week with an assembly all about recycling. The whole

has been based on the various science 'journeys' that we find our self on.

Best Wishes, Mrs Norton
