Welcome to Bishops Down Primary & Nursery School
Year 6 visit the Amelia Centre
Year 6 visited The Amelia on Monday, 16th January. The children are studying evolution as part of their topic this term and were intrigued to look at exhibits and learn about characteristics of biological populations which have changed over the years.
Welcome back to all our children, staff, parents and stakeholders. We do hope you all had a restful and very merry Christmas and New Year break.
This term we welcome 8 new nursery children and new in year admissions in KS2. We also welcome new staff members - Mrs Lightbody, Deputy Headteacher, Mrs Randell, Year 2 Class Teacher and Mrs Jarrett, Midday Supervisor.
Spring term (terms 3 and 4) take us to Easter break which starts on Monday, 3rd April. We will keep you posted of activities in term 3 on this page.
We ended the term celebrating all that is Christmas! The children enjoyed their festive Christmas Dinner on 14th December and during the last week we enjoyed watching all year groups perform their Christmas performances. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and restful holiday.
Team Building Festival
A team of children represented Bishops Down at the first Team Building Festival held at the Angel Centre in Tonbridge. We worked as a team to solve a variety of problems. The children developed leadership skills, resilience, and their communication skills. Mrs Tizzard is very proud of the team.
Well done - Abby, Frannie, Arthur, Olly, William, Rosie, Sophie, Clara, Elijah and Erik.
World Food and Fashion Day
The school held their World Food and Fashion Day on Wednesday, 19th October. Children dressed up in their own clothes representing a country of their choice and parents and staff have contributed to an array of international food for us all to try. Our thanks to all who have helped bring this day together for the children.
Tag Rugby Tournament
Years 5 and 6 entered the Mixed Tag Rugby Tournament at The Juddians, Tonbridge, and played fantastically. Bishops Down came 3rd out of 12 teams! The children should be really proud of themselves and a few were even asked to train with Tonbridge Juddians Rugby Club. Wow! Well done, Elliott, Ruby, Kaiya, Zak, Evie, Caitlyn, Julia and Matthew.
The Amelia Scott
We are very lucky that all our children, YR to Y6, will be visiting The Amelia Scott several times during this academic year. This new project in Tunbridge Wells has a wealth of culture and interest and will enhance our curriculum. Bishops Down children are very lucky to have such a resource on their doorstep.
Roald Dahl Day
On Tuesday, 13th September children dressed up to celebrate Roald Dahl day. Roald Dahl was one of the best children's authors of all time and it was fun to commemorate him today and celebrate . The children had fun celebrating the magic that he brought and continues to bring to children everywhere.
