Kent Schools' Ski Championships 2016
Well done to our children who took part in the Kent Schools' Ski Championship race held on Saturday 7th May. Your achievements are well deserved.
Girls Kwik Cricket Tournament - Tuesday, 17th May
The girls kwik cricket team were fantastic coming runners up in their group and making it into the semi finals. They had some great results against some strong opposition including a draw against Claremont A team and finally being knocked out by St James A team in an excellent semi final match. Well done Bishops Down.
On Thursday, 5th May the school was represented at the Tunbridge Wells Tennis Tournament, at the local sports centre, by children in year 4. The tournament took 4 hours and the children enjoyed themselves and played to the best of their abilities. Well done year 4!
“Thank you to all the parents who came to the Phonics Workshop on 20th April. The evening was very informative and we do hope you took away lots of ideas. Please click here to be redirected to our phonics page.
The bishops down rugby team were very excited to have a rugby coach and first team player coaching them on Wednesday. They are looking forward to them returning for more expert coaching next week in preparation for the schools tournament.
Thank you for the flowers!
We have kicked off Tunbridge Wells in Bloom in fine style and are embracing the recycling theme again this year, as well increasing biodiversity by sowing and planting flowers and vegetables. Thank you to WAC, Nursery, Years 1 and 6 for getting things started so beautifully!
If children wish to bring in a re-cycled container or indeed a plant, they can do so and come to gardening drop-in sessions with Mrs Bell and Mrs Gripper on Mondays between 12 and 1.30 pm in Maple and Beech's outdoor area to plant up.
Welcome back to Term 5
We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable Easter break. The school now enters the "busy season" with terms 5 and 6! Hopefully the sun will shine for us so the children can use all the wonderful gardens and playgrounds. Summer uniform can now be worn.
