KS 2 Christmas celebration at St Andrew’s

Years 4, 5 and 6 went to St Andrew’s Church in Blackley to take part in a Christmas assembly.

Children from Year 6 told the Christian Christmas story and all the children joined in with some wonderful singing.

The choir performed 3 songs and sounded amazing!

Well done everyone!

Take a look at these videos showing some of the highlights!

Year 1-The hunt for Stick Man

On Monday Year 1 received a letter from Stick Lady and the Stick Children to say that Stick Man had gone missing again and was last seen near Bowkervale. It was Year 1’s job to go and look for him. First, we created missing posters that described Stick Man so that all the children at Bowker Vale could look too if we didn’t find him. Then, we went on the hunt around the grounds. Finally, we found Stick Man near the office and we were so excited and happy to find him. This week the children will write their own letters with the help from Stick Man.

Hadrian’s Wall

As a class we made a toilet roll Hadrian’s Wall. We plotted the start and end of the wall and some of the places the wall passes through. On one side of the wall some children represented the Roman army defending the wall. On the other side of the wall the children represented the people on the Scottish side of the wall, who were known as the Picts.

End of Term 2021

As we approach the end of term, I wanted to recognise that this Christmas, (as last Christmas was) has been different for you again at Bowker Vale. I know you look forward to seeing your children performing, celebrating and singing and enjoying the fun that this season brings. I am sorry that we haven’t been able to open our doors to you again for another year, but I hope that 2022 will bring brighter and safer times.

The children have still had much to enjoy – last week the Pantomime came to school, we had fantastic ukulele and samba performances, Christmas jumper day, Christmas dinner and Year 1 visited the Lowry Theatre. This week children are singing and celebrating the Christmas story in school or going to St Andrew’s Church (Years 4, 5 and 6) for this and we are looking forward to parties on Thursday.

Please be reminded that school finishes early on Friday, at 1.30pm. Please make sure you are here to collect your children early.

I take this opportunity to wish you all well at this special time of year. While I know this continues to be a time of uncertainty, I hope you are all able to enjoy the holiday in a safe and healthy way, and again I hope that 2022 will bring brighter and safer times for us all.

With my good wishes for the festive season and all the best for the New Year,
