Welcome to Bishops Down
"Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow"
Maple Class Trip to Pizza Express
On Wednesday, 27th November children from Year 3 Maple Class visited Pizza Express in Tonbridge as part of their learning journey. Their topic for term 2 is Europe and this trip included science and maths! They all had a great time and will enjoy their pizzas at home for tea!
Fantastic Fred visited the school in early November and held assemblies for both KS1 and KS2.
F.R.E.D is an acronym for the four practical ways in which children can help to look after their own good mental heath:
Food – eating the right foods
Rest – getting enough sleep
Exercise – being active
Digital Devices – managing time online
Fantastic Fred and his professor will teach children how to look after their own mental health in a positive and memorable way.
Year 2 - Book Launch
Year 2, Apple Class have been working so hard in the last week of term 1 writing their own books about themselves. On Friday, 18th October the children had their very own "Book Launch" and had a fantastic time showing Mrs Owen, Headteacher, and Year 3, Maple Class their fabulous work! Well done Apple Class!
Year 6 Residential to Wales
Our year 6 children left today (Monday, 14th October) for their 5 day residential in beautiful Wales. After a long coach journey they are finally on Pensarn Beach having some fun.
Food and Fashion Festival
Today, Wednesday, 9th October, Bishops Down held their annual Food and Fashion Festival. This cultural event is looked forward to by the children where they can come dressed in an outfit of their choice. In the afternoon parents bring in food from around the world so we can all taste different flavours and experience amazing cultures.
Tag Rugby Festival
Children from years 3 and 4 represented Bishops Down at the Tunbridge Wells Tag Rugby Festival on Friday, 4th October at Tonbridge Juddians Rugby Club. This was a friendly round robin tournament and our children gained lots of experience in this fun school sport. Hopefully, they will all want to continue playing when we have competative matches to play. Well done years 3 and 4!
Tunbridge Wells Museum Visit
Year 1 and Year 2 children were so lucky on 26th September when Tunbridge Wells Museum came to visit! They saw lots of fascinating toys from the past and learnt about how toys that we have now are different.
Our early morning Running Club is already in full swing. Well done to all the children who participate, you are doing a great job - especially as it is an 8.00am start! Our thanks to our staff and parent volunteers who help with this very popular extra curricular club.
