Next Forest Church- 15th September

Dear Friends,

We had a wonderful time at Pimhill on Sunday, and we are so grateful to Sophie, Charlie, Florence and Dido for making us really welcome. Thank you. Below is some leftover (beautiful) bunting made on the day- if you want to claim it, please do!

We are delighted to let you know that our next Forest Church is on Sunday, 15th September, 3pm at Plex stableyard SY4 3AH, by kind permission of Dean Price. It is going to be a Pet Service- you don’t need to bring a pet to attend, but the great thing is that you can if you’d like to- up to and including horses! There is plenty of space for all the animals. 
More details to follow, but for now do save the date.

Weekly News 12.07.24

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve all had a good week. There is a lot of information in this week’s newsletter, so I thank you in advance for reading to the end.

We’ve had a very busy week in school with lots to celebrate.

At the start of the week, our two transition mornings went really well and we welcomed new staff and children to Bicton.

Our Year 6s received their KS2 SATs results and their hard work this year and positive attitude during SATs week is shown in their results. We are incredibly proud of each and every one of them!

As well as most of our Year 6s going to The Corbet School for 2 days for their transition, we’ve also welcomed two Corbet Year 10 pupils – past Bicton pupils – on work experience.  They have been amazing help in class and we will be sad to see them leave!

Well done to our Year 6s who took part in a rounders tournament at The Corbet School on Wednesday morning. They all played brilliantly and one of our teams won the tournament – we are very proud to have the area shield back in Bicton School for the next year!

Letters out this week

  • End of year reports
  • Letter from Mrs Mavin about assemblies next week

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
