Welcome to Bishops Down
"Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow"
Mobile Farm visit Friday 10th June 2016
The learning journey for our children in our EYFS is ‘Understanding the World’ where they are learning about animals, minibeasts and plants. In order to bring learning alive we booked a visit from a Mobile Farm on Friday 10th June. The farm brought in goats, sheep, pigs, calfs, chickens and a very friendly Cocker Spaniel called Teasel! The children had a great morning interacting with the animals, asking good questions and learning about their habitat, food they like and how they are looked after.
Many Happy Returns Your Majesty!
Children and staff sang Happy Birthday to her Majesty today in celebration of her 90th birthday. Thank you to our amazing Midday Supervisors and our fabulous kitchen staff from Independent Catering for decorating the lunch hall and creating a lunch Fit for a Queen!

Just prior to the the May half term break, Rusthall library was filled with winning entry young story writers, family, friends, competition judges and library staff, for the Rusthall Community & Youth Project 4th Annual Short Story Competition presentation. Over 70 young writers entered the competition so we are thrilled to announce and to give a big well done to (left to right) Emily who was runner up in the age 10-11 group, Mia who was winning entry in the same age group and Isobel who was runner up in the age 7-9 group. Congratulations!
We do hope you have enjoyed the May half term. Children return to school on Tuesday, 7th June. Term 6 is always such a busy time with school productions, parent assemblies, sports day, residential trips for both year 5 and year 6 and of course the celebrations for our year 6 leavers. Let's hope the weather is good to us and the next 7 weeks are both enjoyable and productive.
