A vet and a cat visit to Year 1
Year 1 children were very lucky to get a visit from a local vet, Eman and her adorable cat, Vera. The children asked Eman questions about being a vet. She taught the children how to care for a pet and that cats need food and water to survive. The children and teachers were amazed to find out that cats only drink milk when they are babies but should not drink milk when they are adults.
All children had great fun petting Vera and didn’t want her to leave.
Many thanks to our vet, Eman and her cat, Vera for taking the time to visit us and helping us enrich the teaching and learning in Year 1.
Year 2 Job Fair
It may have been a short week, but the Year 2 Job Fair certainly kept Year 2 children and teachers busy.
The children turned up looking fantastically smart in their business clothes and the day got off to a quick start.
In the morning session, the children visited 5 classrooms where each teacher tried to convince them to try out a new job choice. The children learned a little bit about being a banker, an architect, a fashion designer, a doctor and a chef.
After playtime, the children returned to their classroom and chose to try out some activities related to 3 of the 5 jobs they had learned about in the morning. The doctors gave injections and wrote prescriptions, the fashion designers produced fabulous skirt and shirt designs, the architects designed a range of flats, schools and houses; the bankers tried out their money and calculator skills; the chefs were busy measuring and weighing their foods.
It was a pleasure for the parents to pop in at the end of the day to see their child and share in their stories of the day’s events.
We can’t believe it’s half term already!
It is hard to believe that it is the last day before the first half term holiday today. Time really does fly when you are having fun. It has been an action-packed half term and your children have worked incredibly hard; I am certain they will enjoy their well deserved break – as will the teachers!
From all of us at BSB Infant School, we wish you all a happy, safe and relaxing half term! It has been lovely getting to know you all over the past eight weeks and we look forward to continuing our partnership for the rest of the year and beyond!
Please note, the children return back to school on 5th November.
Thank you for all your support this half term.
With my best wishes,
Welcome, baby Sophie Louise!
I am elated to announce you the arrival of Mr and Mrs Brant’s precious baby daughter, Sophie Louise, who was born on 23rd October, weighing 3.1kg. On behalf of the BSB Infant School Family, I would like to send our warmest congratulations to the Brant Family. I wish the family a lifetime of love, health, laughter and happiness together.

National Museum Trip
The Year 2 children have enjoyed an exciting trip to the National Museum this week. This has been a fabulous opportunity for the children to enhance their learning about Bahrain, Bahraini culture and traditions. The children saw many exciting exhibits and returned to school with lots of information and learning.
We have had a few instances lately where children have developed a fever later in the day and, therefore, have been taken to the nurse and sent home. It has come to light that actually the children have presented a fever earlier in the day but they have been given a dose of Calpol at home before they have come to school. As the effects of the Calpol have worn off, the fever has risen again.
If your child has a fever in the morning, please DO NOT give them medication and send them to school. This is precisely when they are most infectious and, as a result, are very likely to spread the illness to other children and staff.
Please see below a friendly reminder of our school guidelines which state that you should NOT send your child to school if they have the following:
- Strep Throat
- Bad cold with a very runny nose or a bad cough, especially if it has kept the child awake at night.
- Head lice – live bugs or nits (lice eggs)
- Skin rash
- Pink eye
Students with the symptoms listed above need to stay home for 24 hours after the symptoms subsist. If these symptoms remain for longer than a day, contact your doctor to see if your child needs to be evaluated.
With these guidelines, we mean to serve the best interests of all the children and staff in our school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the Infant School Nurse.
Congratulations to all our ‘Super Stars’ this week!
Wishing you all a great weekend!
