POINTS OF Dear Parents,
Lots of Gallery visits this last couple of weeks...Year 3 and 4 have taken the opportunity to visit Rugby Art
NSPCC Non Gallery enjoying what we have to offer locally. Thank you to all parents who have helped support us by
Uniform Day accompanying those trips.
May & Royal Miss Lewis and myself had an evening in London on Tuesday visiting The National Gallery in Trafalgar
Square. The reason for our visit was to go to the opening of a very special presentation linked to the 'Take
Wedding One Picture' initiative led by Mrs McKee last year. We are one of 27 schools with art work put forward for
celebrations their latest exhibition which takes you on a magical odyssey of creativity, encountering women of power
School Closed and magical sea creatures along the way. Our Sweetheart brooches were linked to our World War 1 and 2
Friday 25th topics in Year 6.

For the 23rd Annual 'Take One Picture' exhibition, primary school children were encouraged to respond
day to Pintoricchio's Penelope with the Suitors. If you get the chance to visit the Gallery's Sunley Room is free
to enter and is well worth a visit between 9th May- 12 August 2018.
Look out over the next few days in the entrance area to school and you will see the other pieces of art
work we created as part of the initiative. We have plastic bag art, printing and also an amazing sculpture
for you to enjoy.
I hope you have a great weekend,

Keep up the great work! Ways to help your children to be safe in the sun are always on our
mind. Thanks to the BJS PTA we have some great new parasols :-)
It’s quite easy to be safe when playing outside, with the simplest and
most important thing to do being putting on sun screen. Make sure
you send your children to school with a hat. Sun cream is great. It’s
the easy things like this that save your children's skin from harmful and
painful damage caused by the sun when over-exposed.
Leaflets have been sent home this week, please take a look at the
competition to win some great prizes.
