New to BBF - Wellbeing Wednesdays!

Our Pupil Leaders have decided that every Wednesday is a wellbeing 'check-in' day. On Wellbeing Wednesday we take time to chat, to do yoga, meditation and share things on our mind. Staff and pupils are joining in with these special days every week. Join in at home too and talk to each other. 

Litter Picking

Our year 5 pupils are helping keep our grounds safe and clear. Each week a group of helpful pupils help me make our school tidy. Thank you year 5! 

Afternoon Tea with Mrs P!

Well done to the children who have been green this half term. I am very proud of you all. One child from each class joined me for afternoon tea to celebrate their hard work.

Keep this effort up! It is good to be green.
